The Archer is our long range, low light bullet camera. It has an oversized image sensor to allow in more light and is able to take color photos down to 0.001 lux. It also has a 300 foot IR illuminator and a long range lens. Like our other varifocal bullet cameras, it has a motorized telephoto lens that allows you to optically zoom in to see a distant area more clearly. The Archer is a great choice for anyone who needs long distance video surveillance at a range greater than 100 feet and but less than 300 feet. Those who need video at greater than 250 feet should consider our Sharpshooter model.

Resolution is the most important thing about your surveillance cameras. With this Archer 2.0 set at maximum zoom, you should be able to:

detection

Detect someone up to 450 feet

"Detecting" a face means being able to tell that a human face is in the picture.

recognize

Recognize someone up to 350 feet

"Recognizing" a face refers to being able to say "I have seen that person before" - even if you don't know or can't place who it is.

identify

Identify someone up to 300 feet

"Identification" refers to being able to make out identifiable marks with enough certainty to make a sketch or claim.


What makes the Archer 2.0 Unique:

P-Iris

overexposure vs p iris

This camera has a P-Iris.

P-Iris is the next level up from a DC-iris lens. A DC-Iris exists to continuously adjust the flow of light through the lens, while a P-Iris exists to both adjust to lighting conditions and ensure that the camera is using the best possible aperture (f-stop) for what it is filming. This means fewer optical errors, and the best contrast, resolution, and depth of field the camera can offer.




Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

This Archer 2.0 ip camera has Wide Dynamic Range.

Wide Dynamic Range splits each frame/image into many boxes and it scans for in inaccuracies and adds the right amount exposure to create a balanced and high resolution video shot. Very useful when recording in situations where there can be a large difference in light levels.

Audio In / Outs

audio in and out

This camera has both an input and output for a microphone and speaker.

To connect an external speaker and microphone, just twist the speaker wire / microphone wire together in the same way that you connect speaker wire for a stereo. There are four wires in total; two for each connection, a sound channel and a grounding wire. The wires are labeled.

No Recording Delay / Pre & Post Event Recording - If your system is set to record based on motion or VCA events, you can have a 60 second pre-event buffer to grab footage prior to the detection. You can also set the system to record up to 10 minutes after an incident is detected.

Customizable Motion Detection Recording through VCA events:

VCA features do vary by camera model. This Archer 2.0 supports these VCA features:

Intrusion Detection - Monitor areas with precision, define zones, set time thresholds, and sensitivity.

Line Crossing - Create virtual lines to detect people or objects crossing doors, entrances, and more.

People Counting - Determine how many people are entering and exiting. Keep and review daily logs.

Audio Detection - Listens for Rises or falls in volume, and sudden loud noises.

Vandal Detection - Get alerts based on tampering detection, defocusing, or any dramatic scene changes.


Corridor Mode

Corridor Mode

This camera has Corridor Mode.

Corridor mode allows you to flip the image on its side so that you can change the 16x9 ratio to 9x16. This is advantageous in the case of hallways, side yards, or corridors (hence the name) where the extra space vertical space is needed and the extra horizontal space would only show you more wall or fence area. To use corridor mode, install the camera with the lens pointed 90 degrees from center and then enable the corridor mode on via our software.



ONVIF compliant

ONVIF Conformant

This device is an ONVIF compliant ip camera.

ONVIF is an open industry standard encoding language for the interface of IP-based physical security products.



bitrate 1080p 30 fps

Bitrate - 4MP

At 4MP and 25 FPS, while recording at H.265, this camera should use 3.5 Mbps of the NVR's bitrate budget. (With H.264, it should use 7Mbps).
