Motorized Zoom Auto-Focus Lens
An Auto Focus lens with motorized zoom removes the need for the complicated and detailed manual focus adjustment or zoom configurations at the camera. The motorized zoom module allows you to adjust the camera's view and zoom remotely, without the need to be near the camera. Then, the autofocus lens communicates with the camera to automatically determine what area of the camera’s FoV should be in focus.
Cold Start
Our upgraded Snapit™ and B4 models come with a heater built into the camera module. This heater helps the camera power up in extreme cold weather conditions where temperatures may go as low as -40°F. This makes the cameras ideal for any harsh environment installation.
