Description
 

The Viewtron IP-A8BL is a 4K AI security bullet 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 recognition / 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, however in order to use the AI software functions, you must use a Viewtron IP camera NVR or configure the AI software functions by directly logging into the camera through a web browser.

You can watch this video demo of the mobile app that is included. We also have this video of the iPhone app viewing IP cameras installed at different locations. 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.

AI Features

Here are some of the AI functions (artificial intelligence) that are supported by this IP camera.

Vehicle Detection

AI Camera Vehicle Detection

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.

4K AI Camera Vehicle Detection

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. This function works exactly the same with the 4K IP-A8BL AI camera.

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.

Person Detection AI Security Camera

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.


Home Security Camera System

Home Security Camera System with AI Software

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.


Face Recognition / Face Detection

Facial Recognition Camera

Watch this video to learn how to setup a face recognition capabilities of this camera on a Viewtron NVR. This video demonstrated face recognition and face detection. We also demonstrate how to add faces to the face database on the NVR using video surveillance footage recorded on the NVR. You can also add faces to the database using the mobile app. You can watch additional face recognition camera videos here. Please also before to check out these installation instructions for face recognition cameras.

AI Security Camera Face Detection

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.


Traffic Counting Camera

Traffic Counting Camera

Watch this video to see how how to setup the 4mp IP-A4BZ as a traffic counting camera using a Viewtron NVR. This function works the same with the 4K IP-A8BL.

Traffic Count Camera

Here is our latest traffic count camera video. This video demo uses the 4K resolution IP-A8BL camera.


Junction Box Installation Mount Option

Security Camera Junction Box

The optional 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.

5 of 5 Quality Equipment Backed by Amazing Support! April 17, 2024
Reviewer: Mary B from Roseville, California  
Ordering a new security system was easy because I knew I was going to order from CCTV Camera Pros. I’d dealt with them years ago when setting up a much cheaper, simpler system. Over the years, I followed CCTV Camera Pros on their website and received regular email updates regarding new technology. I’m not remotely knowledgable about CCTV and the intricacies of the cameras, DVR’s, and NVR’s. Talking to Mike assured me that I could get exactly what was needed for my situation and feel comfortable using it. I knew I wanted complete coverage of the property, AI cameras, and an LPR camera. I sent Mike pictures and he showed me exactly where each camera should be placed for optimal coverage. Whenever I had questions regarding specifics of each camera or NVR set-up, the professionals at CCTV Camera Pros have always walked me through it with incredible patience and support. I’ve never felt like any question was a “dumb question”. These guys know what they’re talking about and they live and breathe this technology! I should also mention the care and speed of shipping. All equipment was packed well, arrived quickly, and was tracked throughout the shipment. I also found the return of some unused junction boxes to be smooth and easy. If you’re in need of quality cameras specific to your situation, CCTV Camera Pros provide the very best service and technical support I’ve ever experienced…..and they are a Veteran-owned company…..a definite plus!!

5 of 5 Not only AMAZING equipment, but SUPERIOR long-term January 17, 2024
Reviewer: Carl S from Springfield, MA  
I needed affordable, modern-day advanced or AI Camera technology for a custom project that included License Plate Reading (LPR), Vehicle Detection, Face Recognition, Tripwire/Intrusion Zones, and Alarm Signal Output. I knew the technology existed and that integration was possible, but I didn't know where to find it until I found CCTV Camera Pros.

The Viewtron NVR AI system completely exceeded my expectations and in my opinion is well worth every penny.

The documentation, videos, and walkthroughs available directly from their website made setup and configuration and absolute breeze. While I didn't have any problems, I had some questions to clarify and was more than happy with their response time, clarity, and guidance.

As I moved to optimize my system, I needed some help and they did not hesitate to respond and help above and beyond what I would say you typically find these days from other companies. They CONTINUE to blow me away with how they do business and fully embrace the customer relationship. It is clear that the CCTV Camera Pros team take pride in what they do and *WANT* to teach people how to be better.

CCTV Camera Pros will continue to be my very first go-to for any new project!
