The Dahua 4 MP Starlight+ ePoE camera offers Analytics+ functions at the edge - performing complex real-time perimeter protection surveillance and people counting. The Dahua Analytics+ algorithms significantly improve accuracy and reliability as compared to standard intelligent features. The camera is ideal for a host of diverse applications - Starlight+, True Wide Dynamic Range, and Smart IR technologies allow the camera to operate in any lighting condition and the IP67 and IK10 rating make the camera suitable for the harshest environments.
Dahua Analytics+ includes Tripwire and Intrusion functions that offer custom tripwires based on object type for automation in limited access areas. Perimeter Protection requires less pixels to detect an object to deliver improved accuracy and decreased false alarms due to lights, weather, trees, or animals.
The camera uses complex real-time people counting algorithms to deliver accurate flow statistics from two distinct people counting functions, Line Crossing and Regional. The line crossing function counts the number of people crossing a defined line, and the regional function counts the number of people in a distinct, user-defined area. People counting is ideal for measuring the number of customers entering or exiting a location and to monitor groups of people in a distinct location.
Enhanced Power over Ethernet (ePoE) Technology
Dahua's innovative ePoE technology offers a plug-and-play solution to transmit power and data over long distances via Ethernet or coaxial cables, reducing installation time and saving money. ePoE technology is a viable, cost-effective solution for extending transmission distances and for converting existing, coax-based analog systems into IP systems. For video security and surveillance installers, ePoE technology saves time and money by reducing overall cabling requirements, allowing for existing coax cable to be used, and minimizing the number of peripheral devices needed. For new installations, ePoE offers the ability to design long-distance applications without the need for additional repeaters.
For challenging low-light applications, Dahua's Starlight Ultra-low Light Technology offers best-in-class light sensitivity, capturing color details in low light conditions. The camera uses a set of optical features to balance light throughout the scene, resulting in clear images in dark environments.
Smart H.265+ is the optimized implementation of the H.265 codec that uses a scene-adaptive encoding strategy, dynamic GOP, dynamic ROI, flexible multi-frame reference structure and intelligent noise reduction to deliver high-quality video without straining the network. Smart H.265+ technology reduces bit rate and storage requirements by up to 70% when compared to standard H.265 video compression.
Dahua cameras operate in extreme temperature environments, rated for use in temperatures from -30° C to +60° C (-22° F to +140° F). The camera complies with an IK10 impact rating making it capable of withstanding the equivalent of 5 kg (11.02 lbs) of force dropped from a height of 40 cm (15.75 in.). Subjected to rigorous dust and water immersion tests and certified to the IP67 Ingress Protection rating makes it suitable for demanding outdoor applications.
