INSTAR IN-8403 2k+ WQHD Night Vision Surveillance Camera (LAN/WLAN) indoor and (IP67) outdoor camera with white light and IR LED night vision, PIR sensor and SD card. 3 second pre-recording before alarm triggers. Smarthome compatibility thanks to Homekit, Alexa Skills, IFTTT and the open CGI & MQTT interface. The compact design of this camera was completely new developed and makes it ideal for discreet surveillance task. The two high power 850nm night vision LEDs are supported by two visible white light LEDs that can be switched on manually or when motion is detected.


The IN-8403 2k+ WQHD surveillance camera is ready for implementation into existing security system. But it also offers you a number of alarm features as a stand-alone device like Email & Push Notification, two-way communication and an alarm siren. The WPS function allows you to connect the camera to your WiFi network with a press of a button. Accessing your camera over the internet is even easier. The Point-2-Point connection can be established by scanning a QR code with our smartphone app. The free InstarVision mobile app is available for Android, iOS, Windows Metro and Windows Phone.

The sensitivity of the integrated Panasonic Pyroelectric Sensor has been significantly improved thanks to a unique slit design of the pyroelectric elements. The separated sensing areas prevent thermal crosstalk between the single sensing elements. This makes a reliable detection possible even if the temperature difference between the background (e.g. floor /wall) and the target object (human body, car engine, etc) is small (around 4°C).

Security cameras need to be able to record, with clear images, in a variety of environments. Sony's STARVIS* image sensors meet this need by providing high-sensitivity performance suitable for low-light and night recordings. STARVIS* is a back-illuminated pixel technology used in CMOS image sensors for security camera applications. It features highly sensitive backlight illuminated sensor pixels, and realize high picture quality in the visible-light and near infrared light regions. The IMX335 STARVIS* Sensor is a diagonal 2.8 inch CMOS active pixel type solid-state image sensor with a square pixel array and 5.14 M effective pixels.
