Canon VB-C50iR Indoor Pan/Tilt/Zoom IP camera with 26x optical zoom and true day/night switching with built-in infrared LED

Canon VB-C50iR Indoor Pan/Tilt/Zoom IP camera with 26x optical zoom and true day/night switching with built-in infrared LED

This camera has been discontinued. An alternative camera is the Axis 214.

The Canon VB-C50iR is an indoor Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) network camera designed for ceiling installation. With advanced optic technology from Canon the 26x optical zoom lens allows the camera to view clear, vivid images over a long range for superior image quality.

With true day/night switching the Canon VB-C50iR delivers vivid colour images in the day while at night switches to capture infrared light provided by the built-in infrared LEDs. This allows clear surveillance viewing in dark conditions with a night vision monochrome image.

Built-in Video Motion Detection (VMD) and subject auto tracking allows the Canon VB-C50iR to follow and record any movement within its field of view. Like all IP cameras available from Network Webcams, the Canon VB-C50iR IP security camera has a built-in web server and can be viewed over a Local Area Network (LAN), Wide Area Network (WAN) or via the Internet as a streaming IP webcam.

Canon VB-C50iR - Key benefits:

  • Important: This camera does not include a power supply unless you have selected one from the options above.
  • Around the clock surveillance with true day/night functionally, able to capture night vision images with infrared light from the built-in infrared LEDs
