Clare Controls announced the availability of a new series of Color At Night high-performance IP surveillance cameras that leverage wider apertures, Sony Starvis sensors and integrated LED lighting to deliver improved nighttime visibility.
The new Color At Night series captures full-color images in low-light and completely dark environments with the help of the integrated warm LED light. The company says this provides clearer videos that can help identify bad actors after a security incident. The Color At Night series eliminates IR reflections from rain or snow while the use of PoE and integrated light enable installation in unlit, unpowered locations without the need for new high-voltage wiring. Both the camera and LED light operate on low voltage wiring that doesn’t require a licensed electrician or conduit. Users can adjust the LED lighting intensity to their liking.
The Color At Night series includes 4MP (megapixel) and 8MP models with a fixed 2.8-millimeter lens in either bullet or turret style, plus 8MP models in bullet or turret style with a motorized 2.7mm-13.5mm varifocal lens. Clare Controls says the 8MP models can record up to 4K resolution at 25 fps, and the 4MP models come with a 32GB micro SD memory card. Both the 4MP and 8MP models support micro SD cards up to 512GB.
All six Color At Night models feature Power-over-Ethernet capability and Smart AI events including people, intrusion, line crossing, loitering and people gathering detection. Each model is available in black and white for a total of 12 available camera SKUs. They are all NDAA compliant. Accessories including junction boxes and wall brackets are available in both black and white.
