The latest IP video surveillance solutions by Camius is the business surveillance system with a 4K 16 channel NVR recorder, two 4K Outdoor security cameras with a deterrent, and 8 2K outdoor and indoor cameras. Surveillance cams with a wide-angle lens offer you better coverage with no blind spots, audio recording, color-based night vision, intelligent intrusion detection based on perimeter guidelines and AI, and weatherproof metal (not plastic) enclosure.
Plug-N-Play PoE camera installation
The 16 Channel NVR has a 16-port built-in power-over-ethernet interface that makes the surveillance camera installation easy and fast. Camius PoE NVR network video recorder is optimized for Camius PoE IP cameras. Plug & Play IP Camera NVR Connection made installation even more straightforward. The IP camera is instantly added once the Ethernet cable is plugged in; recording starts immediately without going through settings. This also makes adding a new camera to your NVR security system a breeze.
Once the camera is plugged into the NVR’ PoE port, you will see PoE power consumption by selecting the ‘ PoE Power tab.
IP Security Camera System for Business with high bandwidth and the latest encoding standards
Camius NVR business surveillance systems offer advanced interface to all users.
The NVR’s 256 Mbps bitrate allows live view and playback videos at Ultra HD resolution. All Camius security systems support H.264 and the latest H.265, H.265+ compression. It saves up to 50 percent on the recorder’s storage space and improves bandwidth efficiency to maximize your 16 Channel 4K security NVR & internal hard drive storage.
Note that if you set up the Camius IP camera’s password before adding it to the NVR, we recommend resetting the camera using the on-camera reset button. If the camera has no password set, it will start playing on the NVR (refer to the ‘State’ in green, which means you added the camera successfully).
4K NVR Recorder with Storage
Each internal SATA hard drive has a capacity of 10 Terabytes in the network video recorder. Additionally, the NVR has an external eSata port for external storage. With this professional NVR for home business security cameras, you can save images and footage to the cloud (Dropbox/Google Drive). Only with reliable storage can an intelligent security camera system be complete; Camius NVRs provide information about the hard drive’s health.
S.M.A.R.T. is short for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology. This technology running in the background and on-demand, allows the user to stay updated on the hard drive’s health.
Note this system comes with one pre-installed 4TB hard drive.
Ultra HD 4K Video Resolution
Camius 16 Channel NVR (network video recorder) comes with 3 video outputs to add a monitor/TV for live view:
- 1 x HDMI (HDMI2) output for the primary monitor, which supports 4K video (3840×2160)
- 1 x HDMI (HDMI2) video output for a secondary monitor that supports 1080P display resolution
- 1 x VGA output (1080P)
Camius 4K Spotlight Outdoor Cameras capture video in 4K, allowing a wider lens while maintaining a high level of detail.
The Spotlight Security Cameras record video four times the pixels as an HD 1080p security camera. The 4K cameras record at a pixel ratio of 3840 x 2160 (over 8 million pixels), and 2K cameras are 2880 x 1620 (5 million pixels) at 30 frames per second.
More pixels delivered by the security camera allow you to get more enhanced picture details when you zoom in.
Camius IP offers color night vision mode in ambient light conditions. Camius cameras adjust the displayed stream to include color on a video at night. Camius IP cameras offer color night vision with lights on. It allows the user to distinguish colors on a subject, like a red vehicle or a blue shirt. Even the moon or starlight is enough to keep the camera in Color Night Mode. In complete darkness, cameras deliver a black-and-white picture. 4K and 2K outdoor business security cameras’ infrared distance is 30 to 100 feet.
Security Camera System for Business with Audio
The built-in microphone in all Camius IP cameras provides clear audio to record and monitor clear audio. For example, a Camius IP PoE camera with audio could detect sound and trigger recording in advance if the subject wasn’t in the camera view. Audio and Video are combined and synchronized with video footage stored on the NVR’s hard drive. Sound Detection is triggered when a sudden loud noise occurs near the camera; it alerts the user and records in Intelligent mode.
Sound Detection is triggered when a sudden loud noise occurs near the camera; it alerts the user and records in Intelligent mode. You can set up alarms triggered by Sound detection, and if you click on ‘Intelligent,‘ make sure to enable Sound detection by checking the switch box.

The NVR system includes two Spotlight Cameras with Audio Monitoring and Recording from Camius, offering additional layers of detection and security.
SPOT828A-R 4K Cameras have a fixed 2.8 mm lens delivering a 106° comprehensive view. In addition, a super wide-angle lens eliminates blind spots and reduces the number of cameras required to cover the entire perimeter.
4K PoE cameras main features:
- 4K Video: 8MP (3840×2160) @ 30 fps
- Spotlights – You can configure powerful lights as a strobe or warning light
- Built-in PIR sensor detecting thermal motion from people and cars

2K Dome and Bullet Cameras
In addition to 4K cameras, there are 8 2K IP cameras in the security system (4 dome and 4 bullet cameras). Camius 2K security cameras deliver over 5 million pixels 2880 x 1620 resolution at 30 frames per second using the best processing power, ensuring the best quality, fluent and crisp image. Moreover, with a 3.6mm lens, the bullet cameras deliver a 91° view, and the dome provides a very wide 110° view. Note cameras with 4 and 6-mm lenses offer a narrower view with more blind spots, which gives Camius cameras an advantage compared to other manufacturers’ cameras.
These PoE cameras record 5 Megapixels of video, 2.5 times the pixels of an HD 1080p security camera. Instead of 1920 × 1080, over 2,000,000 pixels, this super HD 2K PoE security camera system can record at a pixel ratio of 2880 x 1620. More pixels delivered by the security camera allow you to get more enhanced picture details when you zoom in.
