Starlight Technology

Starlight ultra-low light technology can capture color details in low light down to 0.005 lux. The camera uses a set of optical features to balance light throughout the scene which produces clear images in dark environments.

Intelligent Video System (IVS) Standard Features

IVS triggers an alarm and takes a defined action when it detects tampering with the camera, an error writing to an onboard microSD card, an error sending or receiving data over the network, and unauthorized access to the cameras.

IVS Premium Features

In addition to the standard event triggers mentioned above, the camera offers premium event triggers. IVS triggers an alarm and takes a defined action when an object moves through any part of the scene, when a target crosses a user-defined line, when a target enters or exits a defined perimeter, when a person or object moves or obscures the camera, and when a target leaves an object in a designated area or removes an object from a designated area.

IVS Advanced Features

IVS advanced features include facial detection which detects and captures a snapshot of a human face in a defined area within a scene, heat map which generates a visual representation of data, and auto-tracking which controls the pan/tilt/zoom actions of the camera to automatically track an object in motion and to keep it in the scene.

True Wide Dynamic Range

120 dB True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) optimizes both the bright and dark areas of a scene at the same time to provide usable video.

High Efficiency Video Coding

Smart H.265+ is the optimized implementation of the H.265 codec that uses a scene-adaptive encoding strategy, dynamic GOP, dynamic ROI, flexible multi-frame reference structure, and intelligent noise reduction to deliver high-quality video without straining the network.


The camera conforms to the Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) and to the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance (PSIA) specifications, ensuring interoperability between network video products.


The camera is designed for extreme temperature environments and complies with an IK10 vandal resistance rating, making it capable of withstanding the equivalent of 11 lb of force dropped from a height of 15.75″. It is subjected to rigorous dust and water immersion tests and certified to the IP67 ingress protection rating. A built-in heater allows the device to operate in extremely low temperatures.
