Starlight technology allows this camera to see in color in very low light

This Starlight 1080P HD Pan Tilt Zoom Camera is a powerful IP network camera with 500ft of night vision capability. In addition to its infrared night vision distance, this camera has an advanced Sony image sensor with low lux capability called Starlight technology that allows the camera to see in color in very low light. Specifically it has a 0.005 lux rating in color mode; that means it has to be close to completely dark for the camera to switch to black and white mode. Like all of our security cameras that are network based, you can even configure a schedule for day and night by setting when the camera's infrared mode should turn on.

This PTZ couples the 1080P video clarity with 25X optical zoom lens and 16X digital zoom to provide the ability to zoom in to objects far away. During the day at full zoom, the camera allows facial identification up to 528ft away, and general observation of the scene up to 2100ft away. For night vision, there are infrared LEDs on this camera. One set for objects that are closer and another set for objects up to 500 ft away.

This PTZ camera is an IP camera that works with an NVR. You can record the video stream from this PTZ through your network to one of our NVR or Hybrid DVRs, or you can install up to a 256GB Micro SD card inside the camera and record directly to it to keep a backup copy in case the recorder is stolen. All of our PTZ Cameras are compatible with our free video management software and our smart phone applications to allow remote control over the Internet from a computer or mobile device.

For professional security video recording and use of all it's features, we recommend using this PTZ camera with one of our 4K NVRs. You'll be able to take advantage of the camera's built-in video analytics features like Tripwire and combine them with its auto-tracking feature to follow objects of interest as shown in the video below.

How Auto Tracking PTZ Cameras Work

Why buy this 25X over a 30X PTZ Zoom Camera?

When shopping for the optical zoom capability of a PTZ camera you should look at the actual specification of the zoom lens and not the zoom power stated as a number with X. This camera has a 4.8mm to 120mm Lens. If you divide 120mm by 4.8mm you get a zoom power of 25X from the starting position of the lens. Compare that to many 30X PTZ cameras on the market which have a 3.6mm to 110mm Lens. 110mm is less than 120mm, which means that this 25X PTZ Camera can see farther. This is where weeding through marketing hype is very important to make an informed purchasing decision.

This is an IP camera so please make sure you use a NVR, Hybrid NVR, or PC Software to record the video stream from the camera. If you do not want to record video, you do not need a recorder. You can simply use the web login or mobile app to view live streaming video. If you are looking for a powerful web camera with Pan Tilt Zoom, you can even use this Starlight PTZ as standalone. To find out more how to use SD card security cameras from CCTV Camera World as standalone, please give this guide a read.

Can i use my regular DVR with this camera?

Question by: Magaly on: 2017-12-22

This PTZ camera is a type of security camear called a network camera and is for use with a NVR recorder which talks to the camera over a network. To use a camera with a CCTV DVR with BNC inputs you need an analog PTZ camera. This HDCVI PTZ camera can be used with an analog DVR in standard definition mode.
