The IN-9408 WQHD is weather proof and wireless outdoor camera. Built-in, high-powered infrared diodes allow you to see deep into the dark. The integrated IR cut filter on the other hand allows for the capturing of native colours during the day, as seen by the human eye. The efficient h.265 compression codec allows recording of alarm videos on an internal SD Memory Card with comparably small file size but best video quality.

The IN-9408 WQHD surveillance camera is ready for implementation into existing security system. But also as a stand-alone device it offers you a number of alarm features 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 from 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).

Image Quality

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.
