    Feature Overview

    The VIP Vision Pro AI Active Deterrence Camera is designed to ward off intruders with an Audio Visual warning. 

    This can be triggered with events such as Motion Detection/IVS(Tripwire and Intrusion)/SMD, external alarm input and can also be Manually Triggered remotely via the DMSS Application.

    It also includes a 24/7 Full Colour sensor allowing the camera to see colour at Night, provided there is a minimum lux of 0.007.
    For comparison, the lux level of a Clear Night Sky with a Full Moon is around 0.25 Lux.
