All cameras we sell, including the Safire Stari, are so-called IP cameras. These are digital cameras that can be installed and operated via an application on your smartphone. Online we find a lot of vendors that also sell analog cameras for a few tens, and of which you store the images analog on a recorder. This is cheaper, but an old-fashioned technique. You often recognize them by the message in the specification that they support POC, that is Power over COAX.
We don’t think you should buy analogue cameras anymore in the year 2020, which is why you won’t find this type of camera in our assortment. When buying a security camera, always make sure that it is an IP camera.
The Safire Stari camera can be connected in different ways. Via internet cable and an adapter as power supply, or connected to a POE switch so that the power and internet connection is provided by 1 cable. This makes it much easier to mount the camera in the right place because there is no need for 220 volts of power at that location, everything goes through a standard internet cable.
Because this camera from the brand Safire, part of Hikvision, this camera is easily integrated into the AJAX alarm system.
Safire Stari can be integrated into the AJAX app.
Cameras from the Safire brand, among others, can be integrated into the AJAX application. This means that the live camera images are directly visible in the AJAX application after creating your own Safire account. This way you have the alarm system and camera images together in 1 App on your smartphone.
Please note: A camera cannot be seen as a replacement for a motion detector of the AJAX alarm system. A camera will also never be able to operate the siren of the AJAX alarm. For reliable detection of unwanted persons, a motion detector is always necessary.
Safire app and AJAX app
As mentioned, the camera works completely independently, so not in combination with an alarm system. If you receive an alarm on your smartphone, and you want to know what’s going on in your home right away, you can view the live images from the Safire camera at lightning speed by either opening the Safire application on your smartphone, or the AJAX application if you have integrated the Safire account into the AJAX app.
Where is the Safire Stari ideal for
Safire’s cameras are ideal for viewing live, or at a later time, footage of any unwanted visit that may have occurred to you. By means of the option to insert an SD card in the camera, you can save recordings internally for weeks.
Which camera brands can be integrated in the AJAX app?
Notice the camera that you can place between the device list in the AJAX app: Ezviz by Hikvision, Safire by Hikvision, Hikvision, Dahua and Uniview. So if you buy a camera from our webshop, they are always suitable to integrate in the AJAX App.
What do we recommend this camera for?
The Safire Stari has an 8 megapixel lens. This gives you a razor-sharp image, because 8 megapixels gives an image resolution of no less than 3840 x 2160 pixels. In the nighttime hours you get a clear image thanks to the built-in infrared lighting which is visible up to 50 meters. Because the Safire Stari is an outdoor camera, it is equipped with vandalism-proof material.
The Safire Stari is an ideal camera to mount outside on the facade so that it permanently views the front or back of your house, and records the observed images. The built-in SD card reader can store up to 128GB of data, more than enough for days of recording. Thanks to the motorized varifocal lens, you can use up to 4x zoom, giving you images of exceptional quality in indoor and outdoor areas.
As soon as the AJAX alarm system detects movement in your garden, using for example the AJAX MotionProtect Outdoor detector, you can easily see what is happening in your garden at that moment, and take appropriate action.
