Avigilon’s new H5A Dual Head Camera is a low-profile dual sensor indoor camera that brings enhanced security for hard to secure indoor areas, such as hallways, stairwells, and corner intersections, or any application that requires the coverage of 2 cameras installed in close proximity.

Built with small spaces in mind, the indoor H5A Dual Head allows end-users to gain the security coverage of 2 cameras (2 x 3MP or 2 x 5MP) with 1 installation. Features include increased area coverage, new analytics, including support for people counting, mask detection and expanded object classifications and greater accuracy for faster responses in crowded scenes.

There’s native ONVIF Profile S, T and G1 compliance allows easy integration with existing ONVIF infrastructures, and FIPS 140-2 compliance with FIPS-compliant cryptography enabled on cameras.

There’s a 1/2.7-inch progressive scan CMOS, sensor with 5184 x 1944-pixel maximum resolution, up to 120dB of WDR protection, 3.35-7.0 mm remote varifocal lens with F/1.93 aperture, high power 850nm IR LEDs, minimum Illumination 0.1 lux in colour mode, and 0.05 lux in monochrome mode, or 0 lux with IR on.

Image compression includes H.264 HDSM SmartCodec,H.265 HDSM Smart Codec, Motion JPEG, streaming Multi-stream H.264, Multi-stream H.265, and Motion JPEG. There’s also Motion Detection Pixel with electable sensitivity and threshold, classified object detection and camera Tamper Detection via analytics.

Weight 1.25 kg the body is aluminium, the camera is rated to IK10 for impact and has an operating temperature range from -20 to 65C, while draw is 13W maximum.

Supported analytics events include:

* Objects in Area – The event is triggered when the selected object type moves into the region of interest
* Object Loitering – The event is triggered when the selected object type moves into the region of interest and then stays for an extended amount of time
* Objects Crossing Beam – The event is triggered when the specified number of objects have crossed the directional beam that is configured over the camera’s field of view. The beam can be unidirectional or bidirectional
* Object Appears or Enters Area – The event is triggered by each object that enters the region of interest. This event can be used to count objects
* Object Not Present in Area – The event is triggered when no objects are present in the region of interest
* Objects Enter Area – The event is triggered when the specified number of objects have entered the region of interest
* Objects Leave Area – The event is triggered when the specified number of objects have left the region of interest
* Object Stops in Area – The event is triggered when an object moves into a region of interest and then stops moving for the specified threshold time
* Direction Violated – The event is triggered when an object moves in the prohibited direction of travel.

Made in the USA, the H5A Dual Head Camera is estimated to start shipping in early April 2021.
