Spyclops Surveillance Systems by MetraAV is shipping two new IP cameras supporting 4K with color night vision technology and has also introduced three power distribution boxes. The cameras have a built-in microphone and are available in low-profile mini bullet and mini turret dome-style options known as 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 4200.
Spyclops’ two new IP cameras are small but capture video up to 8MP at 30 fps, even in low light or dark conditions, according to the company. The CMOS sensor includes color night vision and uses smart IR LEDs that will automatically adjust the IR LED brightness to avoid a washed-out image. This gives installers two options for night recording, depending on the environment. For places with ambient lighting, MetraAV says the color night vision will capture everything well. For completely dark areas with no light sources, 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. The cameras work with any of the Spyclops Pro Series XVRs or NVRs, which include a free remote viewing app.
To complete the surveillance system installation, MetraAV has also introduced three different power distribution boxes that feature an LED status indicator that shows when the AC power is connected and the 12-volt power supply is on. These boxes give installers a way to manage power distribution for surveillance cameras with removable power connections that make wiring the cameras easier. The Spyclops power distribution boxes are available in a 5, 9 and 18-way power option, as the SPY-DB5, SPY-DB9 and SPY-DB18, respectively.
Here are details on both lines.
