Honeywell recently announced the first products in its new ONVIF-compliant HDZ PTZ dome camera range. Designed to deliver interoperability between any IP-based physical security product, these 1080p models will allow installers and end users to design and build network video systems with devices from any manufacturer. For added peace of mind, the indoor and outdoor pendant cameras also capture video on a micro Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) memory card providing back up to mitigate against any failure with the network.
Equipped with a 360 degree rotation function and a zoom lens, the cameras are capable of delivering exceptional image quality and as such are ideally suited to environments that require detailed surveillance, including cities, roads, airports, government facilities, schools, campuses and industrial sites. They can capture pictures of up to two million pixels with 20 x optical zoom functionality, providing the sharp detail required for accurate identification.
The HDZ PTZ dome camera range is also versatile, specifically built to deliver high quality performance in challenging environments. All models are equipped with wide dynamic range to cope with high contrast and changing light conditions. It is also capable of operating reliably in extreme climates and weather conditions. The outdoor model has a temperature range of -45°C to 55°C, and is protected from dust and rain in an IP66 rated housing with tamper-resistant fixings and a vandal proof polycarbonate bubble.
Easy and secure installation is also central to the products’ design and several mounting options are available, allowing an installer to adapt to the end user’s specific site requirements. For added flexibility of installation the cameras also have a bracket accessory available for in-ceiling mounting.
“In designing the HDZ range, we focused on providing flexibility of installation and operation, including interoperability with IP-based products from other manufacturers, without compromising on superb image quality,” comments Mark Openshaw, Product Manager EMEA at Honeywell Security Group. “The result is a range that is easy to install, and capable of protecting people and assets in a range of different environments.”
