Colour monitoring in dark environments

1 September 2020

EZVIZ announced the launch of its most advanced outdoor Wi-Fi camera, the C3X. Thanks to dual-lens camera setup, the C3X produces colour video in extremely dark environments (lab test result: 0,005 lux), without turning on the spotlight. As a result, C3X users see authentic details in night time images, such as the colour of clothes and cars, which are routinely lost in traditional security cameras.

Powered by embedded AI deep learning algorithms, the C3X camera recognises moving persons and vehicles, and distinguishes those from animals, foliage, or other insignificant objects. The camera will push real-time notifications to the user’s phone when vehicles and/or persons cross specific lines that the user drew on the application. No subscription fee is required for the functionality.

C3X features a built-in siren and strobe light, and can be programmed to use them upon detecting motion-based events. Users can change the siren to a pre-recorded audio track, saying, for example, “You’ve entered private property” as a warning. The camera’s alert accuracy will continually improve since the EZVIZ team will continue to improve the model and make regular firmware updates available through the EZVIZ app.

“C3X is the company’s most sophisticated smart home camera to date,” said EZVIZ country manager Ryan Wang, who is responsible for the company’s South Africa market. “The camera has integrated our user’s favourite EZVIZ features, such as proactive defence, two-way communication, and micro-SD card support. Combining revolutionary low-light and AI technologies with EZVIZ’s engineering, the C3X will surely become a popular outdoor security camera in the smart home and small business markets.”

As an outdoor Wi-Fi camera with the IP67 weatherproof rating and dual antennas for stable wireless connections, the C3X delivers year-round security and peace of mind.

More C3X information:

• 1080p Full-HD video resolution.

• H.265 video compression technology.

• Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz band transmission.

• IP67 dust-and-waterproof.

• On-board micro-SD card storage up to 256 GB.

• Simple management using the EZVIZ app.
