Starlight Technology

Designed for challenging low-light applications, Starlight ultra-low-light technology offers high light sensitivity for capturing details in low light down to 0.005 lux. The 40212TNI uses a set of optical features to balance light throughout the scene, resulting in clear images even in dark environments.

Intelligent Video System

IVS is a built-in video analytic algorithm that delivers intelligent functions to monitor a scene for Tripwire violations, intrusion detection, and abandoned or missing objects. The 40212TNI quickly and accurately responds to monitoring events in a specific area. In addition to scene analytics, the camera supports face detection to quickly capture images of faces and upload them to a server. The camera also offers tamper detection by recognizing sudden scene changes and generates a warning message to inspect the camera.

True Wide Dynamic Range

The camera achieves vivid images even scenes with contrasting lighting conditions using wide dynamic range (WDR) technology. For applications with simultaneously bright and low lighting conditions that change quickly, 120 dB True WDR optimizes both the bright and dark areas of the scene at the same time to provide usable video.


With a built-in heater and a temperature range of -40 to 140°F, the Lite series 40212TNI camera is designed to handle environments with extreme temperatures. The camera is rated IK10 for vandal resistance, meaning it can withstand the equivalent of 11 lb of force dropped from a height of 15.75″ and is IP66 rated for outdoor use.
