The Viewtron IP-AX4BL is an alarm security camera with built-in audio warnings and alarm lights for active crime deterrence. This bullet-style active deterrent camera also has built-in IR night vision, and PoE (Power over Ethernet). In addition to the built-in speaker and video alarms, this camera also has 1 alarm input and 1 alarm output that can be used integrate with external alarm sensors and access control devices.
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 built-in IR LEDs provide infrared illumination up to 150 feet. This IP camera is great for commercial and home installation.
The tri-axis bullet mount allows installers to ceiling mount or wall mount the camera and point the lens in any direction. 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.
Watch this video to see a demonstration of the
AI object detection and audio video alarms. You can also check out these
image snapshots captured remotely from the mobile app.
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 intrusion zone detection and line crossing detection at the same time. If you need to perform 2 different types of AI functions, then you need 2 cameras.

- 12V DC Power Input can be used for non-PoE installations
Watch this video to see how Mike setup an IP-AX4BL at his house to monitor his driveway. An intrusion zone is setup in the area where Mike's son parks his car. When a person is detected, the alarm light and audio on the camera turn on warning the intruder that video surveillance is being recorded.
Watch this video demo to learn how-to setup human object detection and an intrusion zone using the AI software built into this camera. This setup and recording was performed with an
IP-AX4D dome-style alarm camera connected to a Viewtron IP camera NVR. This is the dome version of the alarm camera. The same functionality is built into the IP-AX4BL bullet. The only differences between the dome and bullet version is that the dome has a built-in microphone for audio surveillance and 2-way communication. 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.
AI Camera Video Demos

AI camera video demos here. Our video library includes demos using our license plate recognition camera, auto-tracking PTZ camera, and 4K IP cameras with and without AI software.
Security Camera Mobile App
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 cameras, a motorized varifocal IP camera, and an ANPR camera (license plate recognition / automatic number plate recognition). You can watch additional video demos of the Viewtron security camera app here.
View IP Cameras Installed at Multiple Locations
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.
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.
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-AX4BL 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.
