There are challenging installation sites that require the tiniest form factor available, but also require wide-angle, 2mp, 1080p full HD video observation with ultra low light sensitivity and built-in IVS detection capabilities. That's where IC Realtime’s IPFX-S20F-W1 split design IP camera is the perfect choice.
When the job requirements move beyond discrete to virtually invisible, the S20F enables “stealth” installation with a lens aperture quite literally no larger than a fly on the wall. Capable of being installed in the tightest of spaces, the S20F “pinhole” camera has a tiny but tough aluminum camera head with an amazing video chipset & lens system encased by in a tube less than 2” long x 1.5” in diameter.
Inside this minuscule camera head cylinder is a medium wide-angle 2.8mm lens (FOV 104°w x 59° h) that sharply focuses images on its state of the art, full 1080p HD ultra-low light “StarVis” 2mp video sensor chip, for clear image quality even in challenging light environments. By combining its super-wide 128db Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) auto-exposure control with its low light chipset, the S20F can deliver color images down to 0.02 lux and can reach down to 0.01 lux in black & white.
The S20F’s tiny camera head cylinder is connected by an integrated 25-foot long cable that securely screw-locks to the camera's similarly compact network interface box.
At precisely 4.33” ×3.26” ×0.95” this interface box is slightly larger than a deck of cards. The aluminum enclosure securely holds & provides heat sinking for the S20F’s advanced video processing and H.265 compression & video encoding boards, two-alarm in/out ports, front panel audio input & output ports (external audio is encoded within the IP video signal), and Net/PoE and 12VDC power ports. This base unit also houses a 128gb capacity SD card slot for local recording and an external reset button. To maximize its installation flexibility, the S20F can be locally powered by 12VDC where PoE power is not available, and the system is ONVIF, PSIA & CGI compatible. Despite the S20F’s compact dimensions, this ultra-flexible camera is a full-fledged, professional low-light security camera. It competently & discretely fulfills its role in the IC Realtime Video Ecosystem and incorporates both IC Realtime’s legendary image performance and IVS analytics on par with the rest of our cutting-edge camera line.
Using IVS rule settings, you can set tripwires & mark out intrusion zones the same as you would on any of our more visible professional cameras. Its IVS detection system incorporates missing object detection, abandoned object alerts, and facial detection.
The S20F’s unique remote sensor head design allows the camera’s external interfaces and processor boards to be located up to 25 feet away from the camera head unit. This design enables the camera’s interface box to install where wiring is more accessible and secure and makes servicing much more convenient.
Depending on physical space available, the interface box can even be co-located in the same cabinet with the NVR with only the camera’s tiny camera head unit at the observation point.
Since the S20F was originally designed for installation inside ATMs or lottery ticket self-serve vending machines, consider the installation possibilities inside other self-service machines like a cash/coin changer at a laundromat or vending machines in concealed or high-risk commercial or institutional environments.
With such an unusual split-camera design, it would be easy to pigeon-hole the S20F as useful only for its primary design applications like inside ATMs or in entrance doors to replace a peep-hole fish-eye lens.
But imagine the almost endless installation convenience, discrete placement, and discrete video security opportunities that S20F’s unique, tiny design makes possible.
Loss prevention can now observe what thieves have previously concealed by camera dodging. The S20F could be installed in or above an exit sign overlooking a hallway where shoplifters think no one can see them, or anywhere a visible security camera would negate its ability to detect & record evidence of suspicious activity. Installing the S20F concealed over Point Of Sale (POS) register counters enables discrete video recording where tight face shots and hand actions may be vital for identification.
Businesses can conduct analytics and personnel & operations management with ultimate discretion. Small size and 12VDC power capability could make mobile placements possible with the adaptive installation. Even “nanny-cam” placement, such as in flower arrangements or within shelf-top objects, is now easily accomplished.
These are just a few of the installation scenarios where this IC Realtime split-design IP camera does what no other 1080p video security tool will do. If your clients need a discrete & complete video security & detection performance solution, IC Realtime has the maximum flexibility answer - IPFX-S20F-W1.
