4K/Ultra HD 360°Fisheye-camera
1,98 mm lens, IR-LED, PoE

BWNC-842DFIF is a 360° fisheye camera which can be used for for many different applications, indoors as well as outdoors. Thanks to the integrated IR LEDs with up to 10m range, surveillance at night or under poor light conditions are not a problem. The dome camera is vandal-proof according to IK10 classification. BWNC-842DFIF supports Ultra HD/4K at max. 12 megapixel resolutio (4000x3000 pixels). This camera has manifold functions and adjustment options such as 3x streaming, 360° panorama view, region-of-interest (ROI), privacy zones and many more. A special camera feature is the so-called extended Intelligent Video Analysis (IVA+). It comprises the well-known functions such as virtual tripwire, area monitoring etc. but also special functions liek "heatmap", "people counting" and SmartTrack with a connected SANTEC speed-dome camera. Using a SD card you can store and export data.


A SD card are not included in the delivery. The range of the built-in IR-LEDs strongly depend on the location and the surroundings. Strongly absorbent surfaces, e.g. dark, rough structures (floor, lawn or asphalt) may lead to a considerable reduction of the maximum range.
