The Viewtron IP-PTZ-425 is an auto-tracking PTZ camera with 360 degree rotation, 25x optical zoom, and built-in AI software (artificial intelligence). This is a 4 megapixel resolution 360 pan tilt zoom dome camera with built-in IR night vision. The IR night vision is effective up to 100 meters / 300 feet. This camera also has excellent
night surveillance capability without IR.
The built-in AI object detection software is able to detect humans, faces, cars, and vehicles. Intrusion zones can be setup so that when a person and / or vehicle enters the intrusion zone, the camera automatically tracks the object, using autonomous PTZ controls, until the object has exited the intrusion zone. You can learn about some of the advanced video analytics / AI software functions here:
vehicle detection, traffic counting, person detection, people counting, and human face detection.
CCTV Camera Pros highly recommends using a Viewtron IP camera NVR with this camera. 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 demo to see the human detection, intrusion zone detection, and auto-tracking features.
*If you are going to use power over Ethernet, this PTZ camera requires PoE+ 802.3at. Please read these important PoE installation instructions.
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-PTZ-425 in millimeters. For reference 34mm = 1.33 inches. 183.5mm = 7.22 inches. 328mm = 12.91 inches. 169.5mm = 6.67 inches. 208.4mm = 8.2 inches.
Wall Mount Bracket Included
This wall mount bracket is included with the IP-PTZ-425. It can be used in conjunction with the below corner mount bracket and pole mount bracket options.
PTZ Corner Mount (optional)
corner mount bracket is available as an option with the IP-PTZ-425.
PTZ Pole Mount (optional)
pole mount bracket is available as an option with the IP-PTZ-425.
Pendant Ceiling Mount (optional)
ceiling pendant mount is available as an option with the IP-PTZ-425. This ceiling installation bracket is 7 inches long.
If you are going to install the IP-PTZ-425 using PoE (power over Ethernet), you MUST use this
802.3at PoE injector. You may connect the PoE injector to any of the PoE ports on the back of the NVR, then connect the output of the injector to the PTZ camera. The PoE ports on Viewtron NVRs are 802.3af, which is not the high powered PoE type required by this camera. The network cable that connects the PoE injector to the camera can be up to 320 feet long.
POE-AT1 PoE injector is now included with the IP-PTZ-425. Please note that this is high powered 802.3at PoE injector / PoE midspan. It outputs 30 watts of power. A standard 802.3af PoE switch does NOT provide enough power to this PTZ camera.

AI Camera Video Demos
You can watch additional
AI camera video demos here. Our video library includes demos using our license plate recognition camera, and active alarm security cameras.
Check out these images. They show off the amazing capability of the 25x motorized zoom lens of the IP-PTZ-425.
Here is another example to show off the performance of the 25x zoom lens. The following video surveillance snapshots were captured with the IP-PTZ-425 connected to a
Viewtron IP camera NVR. Please click on any of the below images to see the full resolution captured on the NVR.
Here is the fully zoomed out view of the IP-PTZ-425 mounted on the front of our building.
The lady that you see here in the distance is standing 200 feet away from where the camera in installed.
This is the view when the lens of the PTZ camera is zoomed in all the way at 25x optical zoom.
Here is another example of the 25x zoom lens. Mike parked his car in the last parking space in our lot. It is 370 feet away from where the camera is installed.
This is the view when the lens of the PTZ camera is zoomed in all the way at 25x optical zoom. I almost ran over a glass bottle. I was picking it up when the camera was recording me.
Here is a night time surveillance snapshot taken from recorded video. Our parking lot has a decent amount of light, so the camera is not in IR surveillance mode. Please click on the image for the 4K view.
PTZ Controls on NVR
When the IP-PTZ-425 is not locked into auto-tracking mode, users may control the pan, tilt, zoom directly from a Viewtron NVR using the USB mouse. The above screenshot shows the PTZ controls enabled in the lower right while the camera is in full screen live display mode on the NVR.
The IP-PTZ-425 has alarm input ports and alarm relay output ports. Installers can easily connect external alarm devices such as
magnetic door sensors / widow sensors and passive infrared motion detectors to the alarm input port of this IP camera. Ports 3 and 4 on the terminal block are the input ports.
The alarm relay output ports can be used to connect external alarm devices such as strobe lights and audio sirens. Ports 1 and 2 on the wire terminal block are the alarm relay ports. You can watch this video to learn
how-to connect an alarm light to the alarm relay output port of an IP camera.
Intelligent Video Analytics
The IP-PTZ-425 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 perimeter intrusion (human/motor vehicle/ non-motor vehicle classification)
- Auto-Tracking - Upon perimeter intrusion detection, this camera can auto-track human and vehicle objects
- 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.
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 see how CCTV Camera Pros integrated a facial recognition camera with our access control system to unlock our front door.
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.
View Your Security Cameras Remotely
The IP-D8 works great with
Viewtron hybrid security camera DVRs and Viewtron IP camera NVRs. 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.
