The Viewtron IP-A4BZ is a 4 megapixel resolution IP bullet camera with built-in IR night vision and 2.8-12mm motorized zoom lens. The IP-A4BZ is also an AI security camera with the following advanced 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 120 feet.
The 2.8-12mm motorized zoom lens provides an adjustable 102° - 33.9° field of view. The zoom lens can be adjusted from the iPhone and Android App. 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 to this camera using the iPhone mobile app here. We also captured these surveillance photo snapshots and this video surveillance recording to an NVR using the IP-A4BZ that is installed at our warehouse.

Here is the IP-A4BZ 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.
Watch this recorded video surveillance demo using the IP-A4BZ recording to a
Viewtron IP camera NVR.
Vehicle Detection Video
Watch this video to see the vehicle detection capability of this camera. It is capable of detecting cars and motorcycles.
Nighttime Car and People Detection Video
Watch this video to see the vehicle detection and person detection capability of this camera at night. This camera can detect objects in low light and zero light environments using it's built-in IR night vision.
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 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.
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.
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.
These surveillance snapshot were captured using the IP-A4BZ that is installed on the front of CCTV Camera Pros warehouse building.
The lens is set to the widest angle of view to provide an overview of the 6 parking spaces in front of the entrance to our office.
This image was captured at night. You can see that there is enough light on the front of our building so that the camera does not use IR night vision.
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, an IP-A4BZ 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-A4BZ 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.
The above image shows the dimensions of the IP-A4BZ in millimeters. For reference 217.7mm = 8.57 inches. 80.5mm = 3.17 inches.
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.

Complete Security Camera System Quote
Did you know? CCTV Camera Pros can provide a complete surveillance system quote that includes any Viewtron DVR / NVR with cameras, cables, connectors, power supplies, and monitors? We can even mix and match IP cameras and BNC security cameras because Viewtron DVRs are hybrid.
As you have probably already seen on our website, we have 2, 4, 8, and 16 camera surveillance systems in pre-made packages. However, it is not possible for us to package up every combination and quantity of all the different camera models that we carry. So, we can also provide you with a custom quote with as many cameras as you need and a mix of any combination of camera model(s) based on your project requirements.
View Your Security Cameras Remotely
The IP-A4BZ works great with
Viewtron hybrid security camera DVRs and Viewtron IP camera NVRs with PoE. Viewtron hybrids support BNC cameras and network IP cameras up to 4K resolution. Viewtron NVRs support IP cameras and have built-in power over Ethernet. The remote camera viewing apps are able to connect directly to Viewtron IP cameras and also to DVRs / NVRs.
PoE for IP Camera
This IP camera is PoE (Power-over-Ethernet) compliant which allows the installer to run a single CAT-5e network cable to provide both power and data connectivity to the camera. CAT6 cable can also be used. CCTV Camera Pros supplies the following PoE injectors and PoE network switches which are compatible with this camera.
Please refer to these diagrams, to learn more about
how to wire IP cameras using a PoE injectors or a PoE switch.
