Wider Viewing Area
When it comes to surveillance, a wide-angle lens gives you more of the view than a single camera can. This is especially important for outdoor cameras, where you need to be able to see the entire yard and not just what’s in front of it.
360deg and 720p cameras use a specialized fish eye or spherical lens to offer a panoramic view, though this requires software to de-warp the image to make it useful. This can be problematic as it often results in a low-resolution view and loss of detail when zoomed in.
Dual lens security cameras can avoid this by combining two separate lenses with video stitching technology to offer an ultra-wide 180deg view without distortion. Some models also feature a telephoto lens for more detail or even a hybrid zoom. The Reolink TrackMix dual-lens security camera for example can automatically switch between wide-angle and telephoto views in order to keep the subject clearly in focus without sacrificing resolution.
Using two lenses allows for more precise and accurate detection capabilities. The cameras take images from different perspectives and then merge them into one image, creating a more realistic scene with better-looking results than single-lens cameras.
For instance, Reolink dual-lens cameras use a 2.8mm wide-angle lens to capture an immersive panoramic view and a 8mm telephoto lens to zoom in on details for more accurate alerting. They also feature Smart Motion Detection, which eliminates unwanted targets to reduce false alarms and ensures that only the most important events get recorded.
The cameras also send instant mobile alerts when suspicious activity is detected and support multiple intelligent alerting modes such as line crossing detection, intrusion detection and region entrance/exit detection. This enables you to have a more comprehensive understanding of the situation and take quick action accordingly. This can help you avoid unnecessary losses and improve your business efficiency.
Better Coverage at Night
The dual lens camera’s telephoto and wide-angle lenses can work together to provide better coverage at night. This makes the camera ideal for surveillance of areas that are dark or not lit, as well as for monitoring vehicles and people.
Commercial-grade dual lens security cameras use Starlight technology to deliver high-quality color video in very low light conditions, outperforming and overachieving traditional night vision technology. This can be a lifesaver for your business, home, or parking lot.
A dual-lens doorbell cam is a great deterrent against pesky porch poachers, and can also send you an alert when someone is at your front door. It can record video in HD, and comes with features like motion detection, spotlight LEDs for night vision, and two-way audio. It can be powered by battery or solar, and connects to your home Wi-Fi network. It’s easy to set up and install, and can be controlled from the Reolink App. The camera is also compatible with Amazon Alexa.
Better Video Stitching
One of the biggest benefits of a dual lens camera is that it can create better-looking video footage. This is because it can use two different camera lenses to capture footage at the same time and then stitch them together. The result is a higher-quality video that looks more realistic and has less distortion.
This feature works by combining the image from a wide-angle lens with the image from a telephoto lens. This helps the camera to maintain focus on a subject while zooming in. This is great for keeping track of important details when you need to monitor a large area.
Reolink Duo offers a number of other great features, including 24/7 continuous recording and motion detection that can be saved to a microSD card, cloud storage (fees apply) or Reolink NVR. This means that it’s easy to keep your home or business well protected day and night. Plus, the camera supports both black-and-white and color night vision.
