Foscam V4EC


4MP Starlight PoE outdoor security camera

The Foscam V4EC Starlight PoE camera is a surveillance outdoor camera with starlight sensor. The camera comes with 4 extra spotlights that illuminate the area. With these spotlights you can scare off unwelcome visitors. V4EC records video when it detects motion.

The biggest advantage of a starlight camera compared to a regular outdoor camera is that it gives bright color images even in almost darkness. So you can see full-color, high quality images in low-light environments without having to use the extra spotlights or IR LEDs.


Sound and light alarm

Once an intruder is detected, the camera's spotlight and siren will be triggered to warn potential criminals. You can also manually activate the spotlight to stop crimes before it happen and it supports maximum 100dB alarm siren.


4MP QHD lens

2K QHD lens, large aperture, more light intake, wider field of view, clear and smooth picture quality.

Human Detection

When the camera detects the presence of someone, it will automatically take pictures and send an alarm notification to the Foscam APP.
