Spyclops Surveillance Systems - New 4K Cameras with color night vision

Spyclops Surveillance Systems® by MetraAV™ is now shipping two new IP cameras supporting 4K with the latest in color night vision technology and has also introduced three new and improved power distribution boxes. The cameras have a built-in microphone and are available in a low-profile mini bullet and mini turret dome style option, the SPY-MNBLT3WIP8 and SPY-MNDM3WIP8. The distribution boxes are available in options to manage up to 5, 9, or 18 surveillance cameras. These new products are in stock and will be on display at the 2021 CEDIA Expo at booth 3600.

4K Cameras with Color Night Vision

Spyclops’ two new IP cameras are small but powerful. They can capture video up to 8MP at 30 fps, for a crisp, clear picture, even in low light or dark conditions. The advanced CMOS sensor has the latest technology to provide color night vision with superior picture quality and better clarity in low light. For completely dark environments, smart IR LEDs will automatically adjust the IR LED brightness to avoid a washed out image, providing better clarity for objects at various distances. This gives installers two excellent options for night recording, depending on the environment. For places with ambient lighting like a suburban street or warehouse alley, the color night vision will perform exceptionally. For completely dark areas with no light sources, such as a dark cabin in the woods, the smart IR LEDs will capture images up to 25 meters (82 feet) away. A built-in microphone records audio and the camera’s H.265+ video compression reduces bandwidth and video storage demands without sacrificing the video quality. The cameras work with any of the Spyclops Pro™ Series XVRs or NVRs, which include a free remote viewing app.
