Lighthouse devices feature static cameras with excellent resolution and video quality. For details about the camera, video quality and more, see below:
Does the camera have night vision?
- Yes! Lighthouse provides night vision and our 3D computer vision also works just as well at night as during the day, so we’ve got you covered 24 hours a day.
How good is the video quality? What's the resolution?
- Lighthouse features 1080p video (though the streaming quality may be affected by your phone's connection speed) with a 95 degree diagonal view.
Can I control the camera's view from my phone?
- The field of view can be changed by physically moving the camera, but the camera can’t be repositioned remotely using your phone.
Can the camera zoom?
- The camera’s high-def video and 3D vision technology mean you’ll always know exactly what you’re seeing, but zooming is not featured.
Does the camera have internal memory?
- Lighthouse features secure cloud storage instead of internal memory, to make sure you can always access your video, from anywhere.
Does the camera tilt?
- Yes, the camera is designed to be manually tilted 27 degrees downwards or 20 degrees upwards on its base or wall mount (sold separately).
What is a class 1 laser?
- Lighthouse uses a Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL for short) to generate the Infrared light that is needed for our time-of-flight sensor (the 4 red squares you see above both camera lenses). These VCSELs are much more efficient than LEDs, which keeps the device cooler and your energy bills low.
Is a class 1 laser safe?
- Yes, it is. We have passed all the certification tests for a class 1 laser product with significant margin which means we are certified to be eye and skin safe. We output the same power that you'd see from other IR illuminated security camera systems. For long exposures looking directly into the camera, we recommend staying 3 inches or more away from the camera.
What is a time-of-flight (3D) sensor?
- The time-of-flight sensor (the large circular lens above the color camera) within Lighthouse measures the time it takes for emitted light to return to Lighthouse after bouncing off objects in the environment. The end result is a continuously updating 3D model of the scene it’s viewing.
