Top 10 Reasons to Buy an Optera Camera


  1. Multiple single-sensor cameras can be replaced by one Optera camera.
  2. Optera fills the gaps in coverage that no number of single-sensor cameras can fill. Optera provides TOTAL situational awareness.
  3. With one camera and one cable, you can install Optera with lower costs and minimal impact to the building aesthetics.
  4. Fewer Optera cameras save VMS license costs with only one license per Optera camera.
  5. You don’t need to hire someone to actively do surveillance. With Optera, you can record and view video whenever you want.
  6. Optera’s fewer mechanical parts reduces maintenance costs compared to PTZ cameras.
  7. Operators have limitations on the number of cameras they can effectively monitor. Optera increases the area covered using a fewer number of cameras.
  8. Most of Optera’s 8 analytic behaviors span the entire panoramic scene.
  9. Optera cameras cost less than PTZ cameras with comparable image quality.
  10. Optera simultaneously adjusts to lowlight and WDR throughout the entire 180°, 270°, and 360° scene to maintain evidentiary detail.
