Clare Controls has announced the immediate availability of a new series of Color At Night high-performance IP surveillance cameras that leverage wider apertures, Sony Starvis sensors, and integrated LED lighting to deliver improved nighttime performance and visibility.
“Featuring image sensors specifically designed for low-light, wider apertures that capture up to four times more light, and warm-toned LED lights that ensure accurate color and wide visibility in even the darkest areas, Clare Controls’ new Color At Night Series cameras provide clients with a nighttime surveillance solution that rivals daytime recordings,” says Clint Choate, Snap One security market director.
Where infrared cameras provide black-and-white nighttime imaging, the new Color At Night series captures full-color images in low-light environments, and even in complete darkness with the help of the integrated warm LED light. This leap in capability offers homeowners and businesses greater nighttime security and peace of mind, providing much clearer videos with greater detail that can help identify bad actors after a security incident.
By replacing IR illuminators with newer technologies, the Color At Night series eliminates IR reflections from rain or snow while the use of PoE (power over ethernet) and the integrated light enable installation in unlit, unpowered locations without the need for new high-voltage wiring. This can greatly reduce the cost of surveillance installations across full properties, as both the camera and LED light operate on low-voltage wiring that doesn’t require a licensed electrician or conduit. Users can even adjust the LED lighting intensity, so no location is off limits.
The Color At Night series includes 4MP (megapixel) and 8MP models with a fixed 2.8mm lens in either bullet or turret style, plus 8MP models in bullet or turret style with a motorized 2.7mm-13.5mm varifocal lens. The 8MP models can record up to 4K resolution at 25 frames per second. The 4MP models come with a 32GB micro SD memory card and both the 4MP and 8MP models support micro SD cards up to 512GB.
As part of Clare’s Performance Series, all six Color At Night models feature power over ethernet capability and Smart AI events, including people, intrusion, line crossing, loitering, and people gathering detection. Each model is available in black and white, for a total of 12 available camera SKUs, and are NDAA compliant. Accessories including junction boxes and wall brackets are available in both black and white.
