The Zavio CS8240 is an HD infrared PTZ camera with 30x optical zoom and an outdoor rated housing. This HD infrared PTZ camera captures 1080p resolution video surveillance at 30 frames per second using it's 1/2.8" Starlight CMOS image sensor. The 4.5 ~ 135mm lens (30x optical zoom) allows the user to zoom from a 57° horizontal angle of view to a 2.02° horizontal angle of view.
Update! Auto Tracking PTZ Camera
The Zavio-CS8240 is no longer available. CCTV Camera Pros highly recommends this
Viewtron auto-tracking PTZ camera w/ 25x Zoom as a replacement to consider.
Watch this video to see how to setup the car / motor vehicle detection, intrusion detection, 25x zoom and auto-tracking features of this IP PTZ camera. You can
watch additional video demos here.
The Zavio CS8240 can be powered by using either a 24V-AC power adapter or by PoE+ (Power over Ethernet) 802.3AT. The PoE option allows both video and power to be run over a single Cat-5 Ethernet cable. The IP66/IK10 rated enclosure protects the vital components of the camera from harsh weather, dust, humidity, direct impact, and acts of vandalism.
The Zavio CS8240 has a low light lux rating of 0.001 in color and 0.0001 in black and white. When the camera's infrared LEDs are engaged (which happens automatically in low light) 0 lux (zero light surveillance) is supported. The Infrared LED's have an effective range of up to 150 meters / 450 feet.
Adaptive IR Technology allows the infrared LEDs to dim as objects move closer to prevent the image from whiting out. In addition, the IR illuminators can also change their angle to best fit the current angle of the camera lens.
Please Note: The Zavio CS8240 is not compatible with the Zavio NVC-2080 or NVC-2160 network video recorders.

Free 64 Channel NVR Software
Zavio cameras now include the 64 channel NVR software license for free. The name of the IP camera software is the CamGraba. This Zavio NVR software is compatible with all Zavio camera models and runs on Windows based computers. The new CamGraba software allows 4 cameras to be remotely viewed simultaneously. Some additional features are: motion detection and scheduled recording, supports H.265 / H.264 / MJPEG compression, multiple access levels with password protection, powerful search functions, enables remote access via the free CamGraba iPhone app. CamGraba iPhone and iPad apps coming soon.
The Zavio CS8240 supports live remote viewing over the Internet from a Mac computer, however, Zavio cameras can not record video directly to a Mac. For Macintosh users that are looking for a surveillance system that can also support recorded video playback from a Mac, we recommend using Zavio cameras with the NUUO NVR Titan recorder. It is highly recommended that Mac users read our Zavio IP camera FAQ for Mac before purchasing.
