Snap One has announced the international availability of the ClareVision Color At Night series IP surveillance cameras that leverage wider apertures, Sony Starvis sensors and integrated LED lighting to deliver improved night-time performance and visibility.

“After a successful US launch in early 2022, we are now expanding our ClareVision Color At Night Series cameras internationally to give all of our partners a night-time surveillance solution that rivals daytime recordings,” says Forest Liu, Senior Director of Product Management for Surveillance at Snap One. “With image sensors specifically designed for low-light, wider apertures that capture up to four times more light, and warm white LEDs that ensure accurate colour and wide visibility in even the darkest areas, this camera series gives customers greater peace of mind.”

By replacing IR illuminators with newer technologies, the Color At Night series eliminates IR reflections from rain or snow, while the use of PoE (power over ethernet) and the integrated light enable installation in unlit, unpowered locations without the need for new high-voltage wiring. This can greatly reduce the cost of surveillance installations across full properties, as both the camera and LED light operate on low voltage wiring that doesn’t require a licensed electrician or conduit. It’s an ideal solution for properties with little or no exterior lighting, or dark spots such as alleys or landscaping. Users can even adjust the LED lighting intensity, so no location is off limits.

Where infrared cameras provide black-and-white night-time imaging, the new Color At Night series captures full-colour images in low-light environments, and even in complete darkness with the help of the integrated warm white LEDs. This leap in capability offers homeowners and businesses greater night-time security and peace of mind, providing much clearer videos with greater detail that can help identify bad actors after a security incident.

“Our engineering and design teams worked hard to maximise the utility and effectiveness of the Color At Night series,” Forest adds. “We’re excited to share this new camera line with even more partners around the world, and are looking forward to featuring them at the Snap One booth at ISE this year.”

The Color At Night series includes 4MP (megapixel) and 8MP models with a fixed 2.8mm lens in either bullet or turret style, plus 8MP models in bullet or turret style with a motorised 2.7mm-13.5mm varifocal lens. The 8MP models can record up to 4K resolution at 25 frames per second. The 4MP models come with a 32GB micro SD memory card and both the 4MP and 8MP models support micro SD cards up to 512GB.

As part of Clare’s Performance Series, all six Color At Night models feature power over ethernet capability and smart AI events including people, intrusion, line crossing, loitering, and people gathering detection. Each model is available in black and white, for a total of 12 available camera SKUs, and are NDAA compliant. Accessories including junction boxes and wall brackets are available in both black and white.
