Johnson Controls announced the launch of Tyco Illustra Pro Gen4 2MP, 4MP and 8MP Edge-AI mini-domes.

According to the company, these latest mini-domes are part of an ever-increasing portfolio of IP cameras that focus on delivering AI classifications, customizable rules and accurate event notification at the edge, while still maintaining the core attributes of ease of installation and enhanced cyber security.

Johnson Controls states that AI enhances the speed and accuracy of forensic searches. This is achieved by embedding object classification capabilities directly on security cameras. Events can be narrowed to classes such as a person, car, bus, motorcycle or bicycle. Settings can be adjusted on each camera with a variety of analytic rules that notify security or business owners when people or objects are detected – for example if someone crosses a perimeter or is lingering around a restricted area.

With an integrated recess mount, QR code and Illustra mobile app configuration and application profiles that automatically adjust the camera’s settings based on the chosen profile, Illustra Pro Gen4 cameras are designed to be simple to use and easy to install. Smart features such as smart wide dynamic range automatically scans the video scene and adjusts contrasting and overall scene balance without operator intervention or maintenance and the new smart defog feature allows for accurate surveillance to continue even in challenging weather conditions. True day/night camera functionality and built-in IR Illumination ensures that clear, sharp images of objects can be captured at a distance of up to 50 metres, regardless of the lighting conditions. Additionally, these cameras include a range of input/output (IO) options, including micro HDMI and an integrated microphone.
