IQeye R5 Series Bullet Cameras From IQinVision

Posted in Low Light with tags , , , , , , on July 3, 2014 by zackduncan

IQinVision, one of the market leaders in high-performance HD megapixel IP cameras recently announced that it would be releasing its all new IQeye R5 Series of bullet cameras. The R5 Series bullet cameras are full-featured, multi-megapixel H.264 Main Profile indoor/outdoor bullet cameras. In addition to that, these cameras also have support for up to 3MP resolution, making these cameras versatile and able to provide multiple, individually-configured H.264 and MJPEG streams simultaneously.

These cameras also feature on-board storage as well as a built-in IR, making them perfect for retail, commercial, city and transportation applications. Other features that are included with the IQeye R5 Series are 30fps at HD720p and HD1080p, 20fps at 3MP and an IP66-rated outdoor housing.

There are also a host of applications that are available for the R5 Series. Some of these applications include IQfinder, IQmanager, IQevent, IQanalytics and Direct-to-Storage while the camera line is backed by the IQVision best-in-industry warranty of three years.

According to Executive Vice President and Vice President of Sales for IQinVision Rob Ledenko, “The new bullet cameras really round out our product offering nicely. They are versatile, high performance cameras, and they’re priced to be a competitive fir for a wide range of market applications.”

Bullet cameras have been the go-to system for lots of different applications. Businesses, schools, parking lots and other scenarios use bullet cameras due to their small size and ability to be installed virtually anywhere. In addition to that, most bullet cameras are weatherproof, meaning they are the perfect solution for outdoor surveillance as they can stand up in rain, snow, wind, dust or any other condition you throw at them.

Bullet cameras are also exceptionally good at night surveillance. Built-in IR LEDs are common in almost all bullet cameras, allowing you to record 24/7 day and night. In addition to that, some of these cameras have the ability to see as far as 300 feet in total darkness or farther depending on the amount of LEDs built-in.

Vandal-proof housing is also generally included in all bullet cameras as well. Not only are bullet cameras small enough to put out of reach but also, should someone try to tamper with them, the vandal-proof housing will stop them in their tracks.

With the ability to be put virtually anywhere, the small size, the day/night surveillance capabilities, the weatherproof housing and the ability to connect to apps and stream each camera individually it’s easy to see how bullet cameras, like the R5 Series, are one of the most popular products in modern surveillance.

Honeywell Debuts Two New 600 TVL Day/Night Bullet Cameras

Posted in Low Light with tags , , , , , , , on May 24, 2012 by zackduncan

Honeywell HBD95SXHoneywell has just introduced the all new HBD92SX and HBD95SX Day/Night bullet cameras. Each camera comes complete with IR illumination and is designed to provide high quality video 24/7 in both indoor and outdoor surveillance situations.

In addition to that, both of these cameras also include a high resolution 600 TVL 1/3″ Sony Super HAD CCD imager, Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), Digital Slow Shutter (DSS) and external controls for lens zoom, focus and camera set-up. The HBD92SX features a 2.8-12 mm F1.4 IR corrected vari-focal lens with 56 IR LEDs with a 30m range while the HBD95SX features a 5-50 mm FR1.4 IR corrected vari-focal lens with 42 IR LEDs with a 45m range.

Each camera also features installation adjustments that can be accomplished without opening the housings. Screw gears allow the installer to adjust the lens field of view and focus. The porthole at the bottom also provides access to the On Screen Display menu as well as the IR power adjustment.

Also included is a 600 TVL resolution for sharper image detail combined with DNR and DSS, which offer fantastic performance in low light situations. Degradation of image quality under low light conditions has also been reduced thanks to the DNR technology utilized in the cameras.

The F1.4 IR corrected aspherical vari-focal lenses offer a wide range of field of view settings while 12 privacy zones can be programmed per camera, enabling the end user to ensure any civil liberties are protected within the scene that is being monitored.

In addition to that, the IR LEDs provide illumination of up to 45m depending on the scene reflectivity. The IR LEDs, along with the IR cut filter moving out of the optical path, the F1.4 rating of the lenses and the amount of reflection of the IR light from the object of interest will impact the distance the camera can provide a usable image of an object.

Logitech Updates Alert Line with Indoor Night Vision Camera

Posted in Low Cost with tags , , , , , , , , on May 10, 2012 by zackduncan

Logitech Alert 750nLogitech has announced that it is expanding its line of Alert HD security cameras by adding a new indoor model that comes complete with night-vision capabilities. Logitech’s Alert line takes advantage of the HomePlug AV networking standard, which allows data and power to run over common electrical cables.

This may seem like a problem, as AC outlets aren’t located everywhere in a building. If that is a problem then Logitech also offers SKUs that offer Power over Ethernet (PoE). These models allow you to simply run a CAT5 cable to each camera and install an inline power injector at the router. The announcement made by Logitech made no mention of Power over Ethernet for the new indoor camera, though it is a strong possibility that it will be included.

Logitech’s Alert line also delivers high-resolution 720p video which streams from multiple cameras and can be viewed simultaneously on a local networked PC that is running Logitech’s Alert Commander software. In addition to that, each camera is also equipped with a 16-zone motion detector which can trigger the camera to record a video clip when objects move in front of them.

If triggered, the camera can send an email or text alert to you with the video clip attached. Recordings are then stored on the actual cameras thanks to a 2GB MicroSD  card, which is doubly beneficial as it means that your local PC won’t have to be constantly running. Also, if you are a DropBox subscriber, then you can elect to copy the recordings to their storage in the cloud.

You can also review live camera feeds remotely from any computer or mobile device that has an internet connection with Logitech offering free remote-viewing apps for Android, BlackBerry and iOS devices. In addition, Logitech’s Alert Web and Mobile Commander service provides the same viewing and control capabilities available from the software running on a local PC, though it comes with an $80 per year subscription.

Logitech will be offering the new Alert 750n Indoor Master System, which comes with the camera and the Alert Commander software, for $300. If you already have the Alert Commander system and just want the new camera then you can get that for $230. The outdoor system is available now for $350 with standalone cameras available for $280.

Raytec’s Autumn Webinars Focus on Security Cameras and Lighting

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on August 18, 2011 by zackduncan

Raytec logoSummer is coming to a close which means the days of it staying light out until 9 p.m. are getting less and less, before you know it you will have to start turning your headlights on at 5 p.m. on your way home from work. These earlier dark days also mean that artificial lighting is going to start becoming one of the main deterrents  to criminals.

That is why CCTV lighting experts Raytec have already released dates for their Autumn series of training webinars. These webinars are free to attend and are specifically designed to give security professionals the chance to catch up on all the new technologies as well as the latest techniques in system design in order to optimize lighting performance on-site.

Whether you are using infrared or white light, these webinars will offer practical tips and guidelines in order to help you maximize the night-time performance of your surveillance system as well as aid the specification of the best fit-for-purpose general lighting.

On Wednesday, September 7th check out the “Comparing Lighting Specifications” webinar. This webinar is designed to make the lighting design and specification process easier and to make users more informed. In addition to that, it will also allow security professionals to understand the differences between LED lighting and other technologies, effectively assess a range of different LED illuminators and their features and understand what features are necessary for different installations.

This webinar will also compare LED lighting against thermal imaging and bullet cameras and even give an in-depth look into the technologies behind controlling LED lifetime, specifying illumination distances, power levels and measuring light.

Wednesday, October 5th plays host to the “Lighting Fundamentals – Understanding the Basics” webinar. This webinar will give security professionals a better understanding of the principles of lighting, allowing the specification, installation and use of lighting to be more informed and achieve better nighttime images.

This session will also explore light and surface, brightness and glare, color rendering and images, reflectance and lenses and using the inverse square law to deploy multiple illuminators. In addition to that, this webinar also considers lighting as part of a system, explaining how the light emitted from an illuminator travels to the destination, reflects off of a surface and travels back to the camera sensor via the lens.

The final webinar will take place on November 2nd and is the “Insider Knowledge – Set-up Tips to Get the Most from Your Installation” webinar. Lighting has become an integral part of modern security camera systems and the performance and feature-sets of LED illuminators are rapidly developing.

In this session, engineers from Raytec will advise how to install illumination as well as how to exploit some of the more advanced features for real performance benefits. This webinar will also explore advanced techniques for designing lighting for major systems, including lighting for network cameras, domes, pulsed lighting and remote control systems.

If you are a security professional, then you will definitely want to check out Raytec’s webinars. They will be highly educational and will give you a lot of great information on how to maximize illumination to get the most out of your security system.
