Frequently Asked Questions

At the moment, BC500 and TC500 support RTSP for streaming and recording purposes. For complete functionality, both cameras should be paired with and managed by Surveillance Station.
Both cameras are equipped with a 2.8 mm F1.8 lens, with a 5 MP 1/2.7” sensor optimized for video surveillance, delivering 110° H, 56° V, 132° D wide-angle views. Videos are streamed at 2880×1620 (16:9) @ 30 FPS (max). The lenses on the BC500 and TC500 cannot be changed.
There are four 1 W LEDs, which can deliver 30 m of night vision.
Both BC500 and TC500 support H.264 and H.265 for video and G.711 for audio.
Power over Ethernet (PoE) IEEE 802.3af compliant switches. Both models have a power consumption of under 5 W.
Both cameras are IP67-rated for weather resistance. Both cameras are rated to continuously operate between -22 °F and 122 °F, or between -22 °F to 104 °F when IR is turned on (5%~95% RH).
People and Vehicle Detection and Intrusion Detection can be configured to run directly on the cameras. However, Face Recognition requires a compatible DVA system. This is necessary to store and process the database, and to ensure consistency across cameras.
Both TC500 and BC500 support microSD cards (up to 128 GB) for edge recording. Recording autonomy depends on the bitrate (which, if set to Variable Bitrate, in turn depends on the scene) and the size of the SD card. For example: A 3 Mbps stream will generate about 32 GB per day. Thus, a 128 GB micro SD card can comfortably store at least 3 days of footage.3
