The Viewtron IP-A8BL is a 4K AI security camera with built-in IR night vision, PoE (Power over Ethernet), and a 2.8mm fixed lens. The artificial intelligence software of the camera supports the following video analytics functions:
vehicle detection, traffic counting camera, person detection, and human face detection. This network IP camera is enclosed in a IP67 rated weatherproof housing so that it can be used for indoor and outdoor installations. The built-in IR LEDs provide infrared illumination up to 150 feet. This IP camera is great for commercial and home installation.
The 2.8mm lens provides a 107° field of view. The tri-axis bullet mount allows installers to ceiling mount or wall mount the camera. The optional
installation junction box allows all of the camera's cables to be neatly housed. This IP camera is ONVIF protocol compliant so that it can be used with any ONVIF compatible NVR.
watch a video demo of the remote access the iPhone mobile app here. We also captured these surveillance photo snapshots and this video surveillance recording to an NVR. Please note that some images and videos on this page were captured using the 4mp version of this camera and will soon be replaced with the higher 4K resolution version.
Important Note: AI cameras can only be configured for one type of AI function. For example, you can not setup an AI camera to do both facial recognition and vehicle detection at the same time. If you need to perform 2 different types of AI functions, then you need 2 cameras.

The above image shows the dimensions of the IP-A8BL in millimeters. For reference 217.7mm = 8.57 inches. 80.5mm = 3.17 inches.
Watch this video to see how easy installation is with the camera's tri-axis ball and socket joint style mount. Simply loosen the set ring at the base of the camera to point the camera lens in any direction. When you are done adjusting the angle, tighten the set ring. The camera is very sturdy and the set position will not move.

Remote Mobile App Viewing
The IP-A8BL supports remote security viewing from iPhone and Android. This works when you use this camera with a Viewtron NVR or as a stand-alone camera. In addition to the real time live view, you can also search and playback recorded video surveillance footage. You can learn more about the
Viewtron desktop and mobile apps here.
Here is another snapshot captured with the camera in IR night vision mode.
Here is the IP-A8BL camera installation at CCTV Camera Pros warehouse in Lake Worth, Florida. You can see that we used the optional round junction box for our install. The video surveillance images and recorded video demo that you see below were captured with this camera.

Vehicle Detection Video
Watch this video to see the vehicle detection capability of this camera. It is capable of detecting cars and motorcycles. Please note that this video was recorded using the 4mp version of this camera. We will make new 4K videos with this latest camera model as soon as possible.
Here is our newest car detection video demo. This video uses the IP-A8BL 4K camera.
Nighttime Car and People Detection Video
Watch this video to see the vehicle detection and person detection capability at night. This camera can detect objects in low light and zero light environments using it's built-in IR night vision. Please note that this video was recorded using the 4mp version of this camera. We will make new 4K videos with this latest camera as soon as possible.
Here are some of the AI functions (artificial intelligence) that are supported by this IP camera.
The vehicle detection function of Viewtron AI cameras is much more reliable than video motion technique used by a non-AI camera. Traditional video motion detection produces a lot of false alerts. A well trained AI camera can detect cars and motorcycles in real time and with 99% accuracy. Object detection events can trigger alarms such as video recording, mobile app push notifications, DVR buzzer, photo snapshots, and email alerts.
Watch this video to see how the IP-A4BZ camera (4mp AI camera) and Viewtron NVR are used to monitor a garbage dumpster for illegal dumping. An intrusion zone is drawn around the dumpster area. When a human is detected inside the intrusion zone, the NVR records the event, takes a snapshot for the event bookmark, and sends a mobile app push notification.
Mobile App Push Notification
Watch this video to see how Mike uses a Viewtron AI camera to monitor the construction of the pool in his back yard. When a person enters the intrusion zone, the camera triggers an alarm on the Viewtron NVR. The NVR sends a
push notification to the iPhone app. Viewtron IP cameras and NVRs also support push alerts to the Android mobile app.
The person detection function of Viewtron AI cameras works the same as vehicle / car detection. An intrusion zone is mapped out on the DVR interface. The only difference is that human detection is selected in the setup, instead of vehicles. The red rectangle is the intrusion zone in in the above screenshot. You can see when Mike crosses over the intrusion zone, he is detected as a human and an alarm event is triggered.
Watch this video to see how Mike uses the IP-A4BZ and our Viewtron
8ch IP camera NVR to monitor his driveway and front yard. Learn how to setup scheduled person detection recording so that if someone enters your yard at night, you will know about it.
The face detection function of Viewtron AI cameras makes it easy to trigger alarms based on a human face appearing within the view of the camera. The above screenshot was captured using a Viewtron IP-A4D dome AI camera connected to a
Viewtron IP camera NVR. When a face is detected, the event is recorded in the NVR's database. Thumbnail images can be displays (like you see above) for easy access to playback the recorded video of the facial detection.
Watch this video to see how how to setup the IP-A4BZ as a traffic counting camera using a Viewtron NVR.
Here is our latest traffic count camera video. This video demo uses the 4K resolution IP-A8BL camera.
Watch the above video to see how the iPhone app that is included with Viewtron IP cameras can be used to view security cameras installed at multiple locations. In the video, a Viewtron AI camera is installed to monitor the front parking lot at CCTV Camera Pros warehouse, and an IP-D8 is installed as part of the home security camera system installed at Mike's house.
The mobile apps and desktop PC software for Viewtron supports the ability to monitor Viewtron IP cameras, DVRs, and NVRs that are installed at multiple locations. Multi-device / multi-location camera viewing works using the Android app, as well as the Window and Mac video management software.
VT-J302 security camera junction box has pre-threaded screw mount holes specifically for the IP-A8BL camera. There is a bottom and side inlet for cable. When the bottom inlet is used, the inlet plug can be moved to the size inlet.
Intelligent Video Analytics
The IP-A4BZ is has built-in software for advanced video analytics. The following Intelligent Video Analytics are supported by this camera.
- Perimeter Protection - Line crossing, region entrance/exiting/intrusion (human/motor vehicle/ non-motor vehicle classification)
- Target Counting - Line crossing human/motor vehicle/non-motor vehicle counting
- Exception Detection - Scene change, video blur and video color cast detection
- Face Detection - Face detection and face capture
- Traffic Counting - Count vehicles as they cross over a line that in configured anywhere in view.
