Finding the Right Underwater PTZ Camera for Your Home
One setback of having home security is the fact that everyone can spot a camera. That way, a potential burglar can figure out your home’s blind spots and avoid them easily. If that happens, you need a way to hide your security camera so that it can record what’s going on without the intruder noticing. Some people hide them in the bushes, others in shelves, but there is one area where burglars don’t often look for security cameras — underwater.
While most security cameras are waterproof, they aren’t designed for submerging. But there is an underwater PTZ camera that can do just that, and it’s Revlight’s Cyclops. With high-definition video recording and a durable outer casing, it’s the best possible camera for any swimming pool, pond, fountain, or aquarium.
Image and Video Specifications
The Revlight Security Cyclops underwater PTZ camera has an image output of 2 megapixels with a 1080 resolution. In addition, it can support both H.264 and H.265 video compression. In other words, you will get HD video material that takes up little to no storage space.
Those crisp recordings you will get with the Cyclops are all thanks to its powerful lens. It comes with a zoom that tops out at an incredible 20x, and naturally, the camera zooms in automatically when detecting movement. Moreover, you can adjust the frames, dual-stream, code-stream, and adjust both the streaming and the processing speed.
Other video and imaging options include real-time video transmission, OSD, image popup linkage, and JPEG snapshot capture. Multiple clients can also monitor the feed using remote monitoring software. And if you need to reset the settings, you can do so with the one-key reset function.
As an underwater pan-tilt-zoom security camera, the Cyclops needs to be as durable and hard as possible. Revlight experts have manufactured the perfect titanium and stainless steel alloy casing that protects the inner mechanism from both the water and the water pressure. The waterproofing level of the Cyclops is an incredible 600 M, but it can be customized to be waterproof at a mind-boggling 6000 M. You can even measure the temperature and the pressure levels thanks to a special sensor.
In terms of working temperature, this underwater PTZ camera can work in conditions that range from -30℃ to +60℃. It’s ideal if you live in cold areas, where pool water tends to dip below zero and damage other types of electric equipment. Moreover, it can just as easily withstand the heat inside the pool during those scorching summer days. And most importantly, the lens will continue to capture crystal-clear imagery no matter the temperature outside. That’s impressive, especially for a camera that only weighs 7 kg.
The Cyclops underwater PTZ camera offers the standard ONVIF platform access support. In addition, you can connect to it via any platform, such as PCs or Android and iOS devices. Moreover, you get complete SDK access for custom software management.
