Compro CS400P security surveillance

The CS400P camera and electronics is housed in IP66-rated weather-resistant aluminium to help the camera survive adverse weather conditions such as dust, rain, and sun.

Compro CS400P IR-cut filterThe 30fps camera has a built-in mechanical IR-cut filter placed in front of the image sensor to filter out infrared light in the daytime, producing better color reproduction. At nighttime or when the built-in light sensor detects low-light conditions, IR-cut filter is automatically removed to achieve better light sensitivity.

Cutting-edge H.264 video compression technology – which has higher compression efficiency than MPEG-4 – gives high image quality while reducing bandwidth requirement and saving storage space.

Compro notes that “the SMS & Email event notification feature enables the camera to send an alert message to specified recipients when it detects unusual events. The SMS notification service does not impose any monthly subscription fees, and the Email notification service supports popular webmail platforms.”
