EZVIZ unveils its first outdoor pan/tilt Wi-Fi camera

EZVIZ has introduced its first outdoor pan/tilt camera C8C with features including panoramic monitoring, AI-powered human shape detection, color night vision, and event-triggered active defense. It is an all-in-one camera that records, detects, and deters effectively in the face of property security needs.

With a 360-degree field-of-view, the camera can take in views across large outdoor spaces. It comes equipped with a noise-cancelling microphone. 

Users can easily maneuver the C8C using the free EZVIZ app on an iPhone to see and hear what’s going on. The camera has two external antennas for enhanced Wi-Fi connections and is IP65-rated to work even in wind, rain, or snow.

The C8C features a full-color night vision mode by way of professional optical lenses and two built-in spotlights. By illuminating the environment, the C8C renders colorful scenes even at night. This supplemental lighting can be turned on manually, again using the EZVIZ App, or can be set to trigger automatically through EZVIZ’s smart night vision mode. When Smart Mode is enabled, the camera will detect movement and switch the video display from black-and-white to full-color.

The folks at EZVIZ say the C8C sports an artificial intelligence algorithm into the camera so it can recognize and detect human shapes intelligently. When strangers trespass on the property, alerts will be sent to users’ mobile devices and a strobe light will be activated on the spot for deterrence.

The C8C boasts easy control, live viewing, and video playback using the free EZVIZ app. All videos are recorded in 1080p high-definition and efficiently compressed with the H.265 standard. Users can either store footage on the camera’s local micro-SD card or subscribe to EZVIZ’s CloudPlay for cloud storage, which now provides a free trial for up to 30 days. The C8C is currently on offer from Walmart for US$99.99.
