The VT-AX4D2 is an audio / visual alarm surveillance system that includes (4) 4mp dome IP cameras, (1) 8ch 4K NVR, and (2) 100ft CAT5E network cables. The Viewtron network video recorder has 8ch PoE (power over Ethernet) built-in which makes this system extremely simple to install. Simply connect each camera to the back of the recorder using the CAT5 cable that is included. This NVR also supports many AI functions when used with
Viewtron AI security cameras.
IP-AX4D alarm security cameras that are included have built-in audio warnings and alarm lights for active crime deterrence. This dome-style active deterrent camera also has built-in IR night vision, PoE (Power over Ethernet), and a microphone for audio surveillance and 2-way audio communications.
The 2.8mm fixed lens captures a 108 degree field of view. The artificial intelligence software of the camera supports the following video analytics functions: vehicle detection, person detection, and human face recognition / face detection. This network IP camera is enclosed in a IP66 rated weatherproof housing so that it can be used for indoor and outdoor installations.

The NVR and IP cameras included with this system come with a 2-year warranty and lifetime USA based technical support provided directly from CCTV Camera Pros. This is an
NDAA compliant IP camera system that can be used for US government purchases.
PoE IP Camera System
The built-in PoE ports on the Viewtron NVR enable a simple, plug and play installation. There are 8 PoE network ports on the back of the
8ch NVR (standard RJ-45 Ethernet), and 16 PoE ports on the 16ch NVR model. Using the pre-made CAT5 cable included with the system, simply connect each camera to a port on the NVR. The NVR will detect the camera and add it to the system. For the monitor display, users can use the HDMI or VGA video outputs, or both if you want to use two monitors.
Remote Security Camera Viewing Apps & Software Included
Viewtron NVRs include mobile apps for iPhone and Android. Desktop software for Mac and Windows is also included for free. You can view your security cameras live and playback recorded video on your DVR from all of these platforms - remotely over the Internet.

Watch this video demo to learn how-to setup human object detection and an intrusion zone using the AI software built into this camera. When a person is detected intruding in the detection zone at Mike's front door, the camera's alarm light comes on and an audio warning plays on the speaker. This setup and recording was performed with the IP-AX4D connected to a
Viewtron IP camera NVR.
Trigger Alarm Output
Watch this video to learn how-to setup the alarm relay output port of the IP-AX4D IP camera. When the AI software of this IP camera detects a human in a certain zone, the alarm output is enabled, which turns on an alarm light. You can also see the
setup article here.
Trigger Alarm Output from 2nd Security Camera
Watch this video to learn how-to setup setup AI human detection on a 2nd security camera to trigger the alarm relay output port of the IP-AX4D. When the AI software of the 2nd IP camera detects a human in a certain zone, the alarm output on the IP-AX4D is triggered. You can also see the full
setup article here.
Watch this video to learn how to setup a face recognition capabilities of this security camera system. 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 following snapshot images were captured using the
Viewtron mobile app for iPhone and Android. You can click on the images to see the full resolution 4 megapixel image.
To capture these snapshots, the IP-AX4D is connected to a Viewtron NVR and the NVR was accessed remotely using the iPhone app. In the app, users can easily capture snapshot images and save them their phone.
Here is another snapshot captured from the app. This was was captured at night to show the camera's IR night vision capability.
Viewtron NVRs have built-in PoE ports that allow you to plug PoE IP cameras directly into the Ethernet ports. The NVR provides power to the cameras over these PoE ports, and the cameras automatically connect to the NVR software. This makes installation extremely easy for DIY and professional installers. We highly recommend
Viewtron IP cameras with PoE for use with these NVRs.
Here is some additional information about the ports on the back of the NVR (starting from left to right).
- The power supply adapter that is included with the NVR plugs into this port. (labeled in purple)
- To the right of the PoE ports, there is a LAN port. If you plan on connecting your NVR to a network and / or the Internet, you will use this port to connect to your router or switch with Ethernet cable (CAT5 or CAT6).
- Viewtron NVRs have HDMI and VGA monitor outputs. Both of these monitor outputs can be used at the same time (dual monitor support).
- The USB port can be used for the mouse that is included or to connect a USB drive for video backup / export.
- There is one audio input port for an audio surveillance microphone. There is one audio output to connect external speakers.
- Burglar alarm sensors can be integrated into these NVRs using the alarm input / alarm output ports.
