Product Description:

The Zavio B8520 is an IP bullet camera with built-in LPR mode that is designed to operate extreme outdoor weather conditions - hot and cold climates. The LPR mode (license plate recognition) of the camera can be enabled to capture plates at different speeds and light levels. Please Note: The maximum distance for license plate recognition is 40 feet. This outdoor bullet camera uses a megapixel CMOS image sensor and 3.6 ~ 10mm motorized varifocal lens that can be remotely adjusted from the camera's interface. The Zavio B8520 captures HD video surveillance resolution of 2560 x 1920 at 30 frames per second or 1920 x 1080 (1080p) at 60 frames per second. This camera is capable of using the all new, highly efficient H.265 video compression, which uses approximately 50% less bandwidth and storage than H.264.

The IP66 rated outdoor housing ensures that the vital components of the camera are fully protected from harsh weather conditions, dust and humidity. In addition to harsh weather protection, the outdoor housing can withstand temperatures ranging from -58°F to 140°F. The housing features a heater / blower assembly to maintain ideal internal operating temperatures. The heater and blower automatically turn on when temperatures get too hot or too cold (Please note that when using the heater / blower along with the infrared illuminators the camera must be powered by either 12V-DC or POE 802.3AT. When using POE 802.3AF, the camera can only use the infrared or heater / blower assembly, not both simultaneously.). The POE 802.3AT Injector we recommend is the POE-AT1.

For environments with high contrast lighting conditions, the WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) capability of the B8520 ensures that no part of the image is too dark or bright to capture. The WDR enhancement feature works by taking the brightest and darkest parts of the image, it then combines them to produce one high quality and balanced image. The Corridor Mode feature is ideal for hallways and corridors, it works by making the vertical angle of view wider than the horizontal angle of view to better capture long narrow areas.

The built-in high powered infrared LEDs have an effective illumination range of up to 40 meters / 120 feet and provide visibility in dark environments. The infrared LEDs on this camera use Adaptive IR Pro technology, which allows the LEDs to adjust their intensity to prevent image whiteout. It also allows the LEDs to adjust their angle to perfectly match the focus of the lens. Without the use of the infrared LEDs, the B8520 has a Color Lux rating of 0.05 and a Black & White Lux rating of 0.001. A Removable IR Cut Filter blocks any unusable infrared lighting and only allows the visible light to pass through, further enhancing the image quality. 

A few more features of the B8520 include 2x alarm input & 2x alarm output, built-in Micro SD / SDHC Card Slot and two way audio support (for use with external audio devices).

Remote Viewing


This high definition IP camera is compatible for live remote viewing from both Windows and Mac computers in addition to iPhone and Android mobile devices. From Windows, the Internet Explorer web browser is used and from Macintosh computers, the Safari web browser is used. Mac users, this product supports live remote viewing over the Internet from a Mac computer, however, Zavio cameras can not record video directly to a Mac. For Macintosh users that are looking for a surveillance system that can also support recorded video playback from a Mac, we recommend using Zavio cameras with the NUUO NVR Titan recorder.
