Grandstream Expands IP Surveillance Line with Four New Infrared IP Cameras

New outdoor infrared weatherproof IP cameras offer a variety of form factors, video resolutions, and lens options for a customizable surveillance solution. By ChannelPro

Grandstream Networks has unveiled four new Outdoor Infrared Weatherproof IP Cameras designed for the SMB, enterprise, and consumer markets. The four new IP cameras, GXV3672_HD_36, GXV3672_FHD_36, GXV3674_FHD_VF, and GXV3610_FHD expand the model selection within Grandstream's outdoor IP Cameras while offering users a variety of form factors, video resolution, and lens options that allow for the creation of a customized surveillance solution.

The GXV3672_HD_36 and GXV3672_FHD_36 IP Cameras are two new model options within the existing day/night, bullet-style GXV3672 IP camera series that gives users the choice to select a 3.6mm lens vs. the existing 8mm lens. The 3.6mm lens models offers better coverage for wider-angle monitoring, while the existing 8mm version is designed for monitoring medium distances at a 30-degree angle. All four GXV3672 IP camera models feature a 1.2 and 3.1 Megapixel CMOS sensors, multi-bit-rate H.264 at 720p or 1080p resolutions, IP66 weatherproof casing, ONVIF compliance, and (Infrared) IR-Cut capability for nighttime and low-light video surveillance recording. In addition to high-resolution black/white images produced at night, the IR cameras deliver HD color images during the day, even under dim light conditions.

The new GXV3674_FHD_VF IP Camera with vari-focal lens adds a Full HD model to the GXV3674_VF series for 1080p video recording. The GXV3674_VF series are Grandstream's first vari-focal IP Cameras, allowing them to be manually adjusted from 2.8mm (close angle monitoring at 115 degree angle) to 12mm (long distance at a 30 degree angle). This camera series features 1.2 and 3.1 Megapixel CMOS image sensors and multi-bit-rate H.264 video compression at 720p or 1080p resolution. Suitable for both indoor/outdoor applications and those situations where a business or homeowner may change locations in the future, the user can move the camera and adjust the lens accordingly. The GXV3674_VF series has an IP66 certified weatherproof casing, IR-Cut capability for nighttime and low-light video surveillance recording and ONVIF-compliancy.

For 1080p video recording, Grandstream created the GXP3610_FHD. The GXV3610 series is an indoor/outdoor fixed dome IP camera that features IR capability for advanced nighttime and low-light surveillance recording, IP66 weatherproof casing and a 3.6mm focal lens for wide-angle monitoring of nearby subjects in settings such as banks, hotels, retail, offices, warehouses, and building entrances.

All Grandstream GXV IP Video Surveillance cameras have integrated PoE, H.264 real-time video compression, embedded video analytics, SIP/VoIP for 2-way audio and video streaming, support advanced notification and alert options, built-in high performance streaming servers, and security.

Separately, Grandstream offers a free video monitoring/recording software application, GSurf Pro, to any customers who purchase any Grandstream IP cameras. The GSurf Pro Video Management Software allows users to view/control/record up to 36 cameras simultaneously.
