Lorex has made quality security camera systems for years, and the Nocturnal Series only proves they are still a leader in their field. These state-of-the-art cameras are perfect for busy businesses, construction sites and even shopping centers. But what makes them so suited for high-traffic areas? Here’s an in-depth look at how the Lorex Nocturnal 4K Ultra HD security camera system rises above the competition.
4K Ultra HD
These Nocturnal cameras use Power over Ethernet (PoE), rather than batteries or a separate power cable. The Ethernet connectivity offers a couple perks. First, these cameras capture all footage in 4K resolution. Up until recently, only mega expensive cameras captured footage at that quality. This is now only possible with PoE cameras, as the footage creates large amounts of data at that resolution. In fact, with frames per second (FPS) this high, you’ll need an extra 1.3 megabytes of bandwidth. After being transferred via Ethernet cable, footage is stored on a compatible NVR hard drive, which is essential, as PoE cameras record around the clock, 24/7.
Frames Per Second
FPS dictates the number of frames contained within each second of footage. Security camera standard is anywhere from 10-15 FPS, but many are even lower. Some security camera systems only take one to five frames per second. An average person can cover anywhere from 4 to 16 feet in a single second depending on whether they move at a walk or run. Lower FPS cameras will miss a lot, and even standard FPS can’t pick up on nuanced motion. Luckily, the Nocturnal series boasts an FPS double that of standard security camera systems, with a frame rate of 30 per second. This level of FPS ensures you don’t miss a moment, no matter how small.
Color Night Vision
Color Night Vision (CNV) is a revolutionary new technology patented by Lorex Technologies. While CNV cannot pull color out of pitch-dark, it can with a bit of ambient light. When it comes to your safety or protection of your property, color can make all the difference. Whether it’s hair color, the color of a car or shirt, this technology could help authorities find someone suspected of wrong-doing. However, the more ambient light the better, as in extreme darkness this security camera system will switch to long-range black and white infrared night vision.
Most security camera systems light must travel through wires and transistors before it reaches the image sensors inside the camera. These pathways cut down on the light the camera can capture. However, the Nocturnal Series illuminates pixels from behind the sensor, and so bypasses the wires that would ultimately diminish the image quality. This technology vastly improves the image in low-light situations and reduces the grainy quality common among security camera systems of lesser performance.
Top of the Market
With all these features, this nocturnal security system is at the top of the market, even compared with other PoE cameras. The real-time 30 FPS make sure you don’t miss the smallest details, as does the 4k Resolution. The CNV and Back Illuminated Pixel technology also ensure the night is no obstacle when it comes to keeping people, possessions and property safe, especially with 24/7 surveillance.
