Infrared HD PTZ


  The New Night Scout HD Infrared PTZ Camera from Rugged Cams is a 2 Megapixel PTZ Camera that delivers flawless daytime and nightime video in 1080p.  We make the side panels out of Titanium, and this makes this awesome PTZ one tough Camera!


The amazing thing about this TVI PTZ, is that you can totally control it through the normal coax – NO RS485 Control wires needed!  This is truly a breakthrough, and saves you money for the extra wiring and a lot of labor.  You get total control through your DVR, from your phone or tablet, or any PC – anywhere in the world.   Truly a game changer!


The Night Scout is equipped with a Panasonic PTZ Module that has a 30X Optical Zoom Lens and a 12X Digital Zoom as well (4.3mm to 129mm – which gives you a picture that starts out almost 59 degrees wide, and can zoom in to slightly over 2 degrees wide).


The Night Scout has Panasonic’s version of WDR (Wide Dynamic Range), and can be turned on or off via the Menu.  This will come in handy if you have the sun behind your subject or blinding reflections in your picture.


This PTZ is a great way to light up the night.  The large LED Infrared Lamps will shine out to as far as 820 feet on a moonless night, AND – The intensity is controlled by how far you zoom.


It also has Image Stabilization, which is also controlled by an On/Off toggle in the Menu.  So if your mount is a little shaky or the winds are high, this setting helps when you are zoomed in tight.


This awesome HD PTZ is operated via 24Volt AC, and has a Fan and Heater to control the temperature during any weather.  The Fan runs all the time, but the Heater comes on when the temperature drops below 50 degrees F.  (Wide Temperature Tolerance – 22 degrees below zero to 122 above).


The Night Scout has a whole range of features, including:

  • 209 settable Preset positions
  • 8 Different Patterns that can be programmed (each pattern can have a total of 768 commands, or 5 minutes total per pattern
  • 10 Swings
  • 8 Groups (MAX. 40 Actions with The Combination of Preset,
