Indoor/Outdoor 2 Megapixel Network PTZ

The Commander-30 is a 2 Megapixel Indoor/Outdoor PTZ Camera that has a long throw – both with it’s powerful Infrared Lamps, and also with a 30X Zoom Lens. This PTZ is meant for longer distances.

This 2 Megapixel Network Camera works great anywhere you put it – Indoors in warehouses or plant floor environments, but also, thanks to being totally weatherproof, at any outdoor location it is needed. At a Gate, a Driveway, Restricted Areas, or building entrances.

The Infrared LED Lamps onboard can deliver invisible Infrared Light out to almost 500 feet on a moonless night. Plus – they are controlled via Smart IR, which controls the brightness based on the picture – if something is too close and starts glaring too much white in the picture, it turns down the brightness.

One of the unique features of this small, yet powerful Pan/Tilt/Zoom camera, is the 30X Zoom Lens. This lens has a faster Auto-Focus sequence than most PTZ’s, and can deliver a sharply focused image very quickly. This Motorized Zoom Lens (4.5mm to 135mm), is intended to see people, vehicles and other items of interest at a distance.

Notice that the lens starts at 4.5mm. This is not the widest angle, and is intended to zoom down hallways, all the way across a warehouse, out to a gate or perimeter fence, or to zoom in on processes or machinery. The view starts out at about 63 degrees wide, then zooms in to only 2.3 degrees wide. So that should give you a pretty clear picture of what this camera is designed to do. It’s made for Zooming in to see detail at greater distances than most PTZ cameras (Digital Zoom can also be turned on).

This PTZ can have as many as 256 Preset positions, can run up to 16 Patrols and Patterns (It can run up to 16 patterns as well as patrols, and can remember patterns that are as long as 15 minutes per pattern)

It also has a Home position that it will return to after a time you have set.

This PTZ Camera delivers 1080p resolution at 30fps, and can also be set to 720p or lower if needed. It also has the ability to carry an SD Card for stand-alone or emergency backup recording (up to 128Gb).

One of the great features of this camera, is the REAL Optical WDR (Wide Dynamic Range – with 120dB gain) from Sony. Unlike Digital WDR, this feature, when turned on and fine-tuned, can really help with blinding glare and when the sun is behind a person you are trying to see. This is commonly encountered in a warehouse setting when a Bay Door is up and the sunlight is causing glare. This feature is yet another tool to tailor this camera to wherever you need it – despite the prevailing conditions.

This IP Camera is Outdoor Rated (IP66), and also works well indoors in larger spaces. Add in the fact that this camera is rated down to -40 below, and +150 (F), and you have a camera that is ready for just about any environment you need it to be.

Take a look at some of the other Features of the Commander-30 PTZ:

  • 800 feet + for Video and Audio over normal Cat5e (when connected to any Enviro Cams NVR or POE Switch with extended distance turned on). This PTZ pulls a lot of power, so Operation Voltage must be more local to the camera (within a couple hundred feet max when using AC voltage).

  • 24V AC (default voltage) or 24V DC (9-42 watts max) (POE Voltage is OK, but a PSE is required)

  • Intelligent Temperature Control – Fans control the temperature of the PTZ and heat dissipation is highly effective

  • Innovative Snow Removal Technology – heats up the Lens and Lamp areas to melt off ice and snow

  • OnVif Conformance

  • H.265, H.265+, H.264 and MJPEG Compressions (@1080p or lower)

  • Micro SD Card can be purchased (pre-formatted for use in the camera), and can be used as stand-alone recording or as a fail-over if POE Power is cut. When POE is restored, the card will automatically download all the recording to the NVR.

  • Supports many Smart Analytics – People counting, Face Detection, Line Crossing, Intrusion, Motion, etc.

  • This camera has Audio input wires. This makes it possible to add an external Mic if needed.

  • Also has an Alarm input connection. This can facilitate many scenarios. For example: connect a door or other type sensor, and program actions based on that – such as going to a preset position, send an email, etc.

The Commander-30 is covered by Enviro Cams 3 Year Warranty
