The Viewtron IP-A8D is a 8 megapixel / 4K AI security camera built-in IR night vision and a turret style white dome housing. The IP-A8D is an IP camera with PoE (power over Ethernet) support. The AI software that is built into this camera supports the following advanced video analytics functions:
vehicle detection, traffic counting, person detection, people counting, and human face recognition / face detection.
This network IP camera is enclosed in a IP67 rated weatherproof dome housing so that it can be used for indoor and outdoor installations. The built-in infrared LEDs provide infrared illumination up to 90 feet (20-30 meters). You can see a video demo of the
IR night vision here. The fixed 2.8mm lens captures provides a 107 degree horizontal field of view. The tri-axis turret dome allows installers to ceiling mount or wall mount the camera and angle the lens in any direction.
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.

surveillance images captured with a Viewtron AI camera connected to a Viewtron IP camera NVR.
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-A8D in millimeters. For reference 94.6mm = 3.7 inches. 82.8mm = 3.25 inches.
Watch this video to see how easy installation is with the camera's turret-style / eyeball style mount. Simply loosen the set screw at the base of the camera to point the camera lens in any direction. When you are done adjusting the angle, tighten the set screw. The camera is very sturdy and the set position will not move. The Allen wrench is included.
This is an IP67 rated security camera. The weatherproof housing provides 100% protection from dust and 100% protection from water intrusion. This camera can safely be installed outdoors in areas that have a extremely heavy rain and high humidity. It can also be installed in very cold climates and along ocean coasts where there is salt water in the air.
The camera body is made with high quality, corrosion-proof alloy aluminum. Stainless steel mounting screws are included for installation. CCTV Camera Pros highly recommends IP67 security cameras for outdoor installations. You can learn more about
IP67 IP cameras here.

In this video, the mobile app connects to the
Viewtron IP camera NVR at CCTV Camera Pros office. The CCTV Camera Pros' NVR is connected to 6
Viewtron IP cameras, including 4K AI security cameras, a motorized varifocal / zoom IP camera, and an LPR / ANPR camera (license plate recognition / automatic number plate recognition). You can watch additional video demos of the Viewtron security camera app here.
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 4K dome IP camera 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.

Intelligent Video Analytics
The IP-A8D 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
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 demo to see the Viewtron vehicle detection / intrusion detection in action. This video was captured using the
IP-A8BL bullet 4K AI security camera. The dome IP-A8D works the same way and provides the same high quality.
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 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.
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.

IP Camera Systems
CCTV Camera Pros sells these complete
IP camera systems available that include multiple IP cameras, a NVR with built-in PoE, and pre-made CAT5 cable for each camera. We can also design custom systems.
Custom Security Camera System Quote
Did you know? CCTV Camera Pros can provide a custom 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 with Viewtron DVRs because they are hybrid. Viewtron PoE NVRs work only with IP cameras.
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.
