Ideal complete DW Spectrum® solution for small scale applications

The MEGApix® CaaS™, combined with Blackjack® NAS desktop products can deliver a complete DW Spectrum® network solution.

All-in-one cameras that do not require NVR’s, DVR’s or on-premise servers

MEGApix® CaaS™ cameras act as an all-in-one solution, handling recording, notifications, management and monitoring all accessed remotely, with no need for a dedicated server or remote recorder.

Camera as a system

The CaaS™ solution supports multiple cameras in the same network, and unlimited systems all accessible and manageable via DW Spectrum® client, app and DW Cloud™.

CleanView™ Hydrophobic Dome Coating

The CleanView™ coating improves visibility by reducing water spots, dust and grease build-up on the camera dome housing’s glass. The CleanView™ coating treatment will allow the liquid to roll off of the dome’s glass surfaces when tilted vertically up to 10° or less. The CleanView™ coating leaves the camera dome’s glass clean, repels dust and grease, preventing IR reflections due to dust and smudges.
