The IP-AX4BL is an audio and alarm light security camera with built-in AI software. Watch this video to see how I setup this camera at my house to monitor my driveway. I created an intrusion zone on the NVR so that when the AI software detects a person the alarm light flashes and an audio warning plays over the speaker. In addition to the audio files that are included with the camera, users can also upload custom warning messages and alarm sounds to the camera.
The camera at my house is hard wired to one of the PoE ports on this 16ch Viewtron NVR.
You can learn more about Viewtron IP camera NVRs here. They are available in 8ch, 16ch, and 32ch models.
Dome Alarm Camera
In addition to the IP-AX4BL, we also have this dome-style-alarm security camera available. The dome model has a built-in surveillance microphone that can be used for 2-way audio communication.
Security Camera with Alarm Sound
Here is another video demo of the Viewtron IP-AX4D security camera with alarm sound. Watch this video to see the camera that I installed at the front door of my home.
Custom Warning Message
In addition to the siren alarm and warning messages that come installed on Viewtron alarm security cameras, you can also upload custom warning messages and custom siren alarm sounds to these IP cameras. Please watch the above video to see my testing at CCTV Camera Pros office. I also wrote this blog post to document how-to upload a custom warning message to Viewtron alarm IP cameras.
IP Camera Alarm Output
In addition to the built-in flashing light, Viewtron alarm cameras also have an alarm relay output port. The alarm output port can be connected to a larger flashing light ad the light does not necessarily need to be installed near the camera. You can learn how to setup the IP camera alarm output here. You can find all of the Viewtron IP cameras with alarm output here.

Hey guys, Mike from CCTV Camera Pros here. I recently did some more testing at my house using one of our Viewtron alarm security cameras. These alarm security cameras are network IP cameras with built in AI software to detect humans and vehicles, and they can trigger audio and visual alarms on the camera. The camera has built in high powered LED lights, and it also has a speaker so that when someone intrudes in a certain area, if a person or a vehicle intrudes in a certain area that you could set up, the light can come on flashing and also an audible message can play over the speaker. Watch this video to see how I set up an intrusion zone around the area in my driveway where my son parks his car to trigger the audio and visual alarms.
Here’s the live view of the security cameras on my home system. And this is the alarm security camera right here that I’ve mounted. And to access the settings, I’m going to click on this button and then select settings. And then, I’m going to select AI/Event, and then AI Event again. Using this dropdown right here, I’m going to select the camera that I want to work with, and then the type of alarm I want to set up is Intrusion. So, I’m going to select that and then check this checkbox here. Next, I’m going to draw the intrusion zone. I’m using the USB mouse that’s connected to the DVR, by the way. So, I’m just pointing and clicking on these points to make an intrusion zone in my driveway around my son’s car.
And then, under the detection target area, you can configure if you want it to detect just people or if you want to also detect vehicles. I’m going to leave them all on, but it’s really just to detect humans mostly. And then, what I’m going to do is I’m going to trigger a snapshot on the DVR, and it’ll record video automatically. But I’m also going to enable the audio alarm and the light alarm on the camera. When I’m done, I press the apply button. Next, I’m going to go into the audio settings. And in on this audio settings screen is where you can select the camera you want to work with, and then which voice recording or which alarm that you want to sound.
There’s a bunch of pre-recorded ones available on these cameras, and you can also upload custom ones. If you’re not happy with the ones that are on there, it does support the ability for you to record your own message that could be uploaded and played. And you configure the number of times you want the recording to play, as well as the volume and other settings down here. When I’m done, I click apply. Next, I’m going to go into the light. The light, you could set the flashing frequency to low, medium, or high. I’m going to go ahead and set it to high, and apply those settings.
You can also set the flash timing. So when I’m done, I close that out, and I’m back at the live view of the camera. So next, I’m going to enable the AI visualization by clicking on this icon. That opens up that little side window there that will show you when an AI event occurs. So, you see me coming around the corner here, and I’m holding my camera because I’m also going to record what the camera does, which I’ll show you in a minute. But you’ll see when I penetrate that intrusion zone, the camera’s detecting me as a human object, and then it bookmarks that event on the DVR. So next, I’m going to switch over so you can see from my point of view what the camera was doing. So, let’s take a look at that now. So, here I come walking up. And in a minute, it’ll detect me going through that intrusion zone. And then, you’ll see the LED light come on, and you’ll hear the audio.
