  • Two Upcoming Cameras Offer Feature-rich Options for Lower-profile Surveillance and Improved Low Light Performance

    The upcoming IDIS DC-C4212RX micro dome camera is ideal for applications where discrete, unobtrusive surveillance, (without sacrificing performance or image quality), is paramount.
    Available late summer 2019, it features an innovative, no-pigtail design that allows faster deployment and makes flush mounting easy. Measuring only 86 mm x 58 mm and weighing just 105 grams, the DC-C4212RX delivers advanced benefits—including all you’ve come to expect from the DirectIP™ line—with a lower profile form factor, making it the perfect choice for environments including high-end jewelry stores and boutiques. True wide dynamic range (WDR); IR LED illumination up to 15m with day and night ICR; and three-axis mechanical design allow the camera to be deployed in a wide range of locations and lighting conditions, delivering exceptional quality live monitoring and playback.

    The new IDIS LightMaster PTZ features a powerful 36x optical zoom, a Hall-based auto-iris for precise light control providing optimum image quality, and a choice between PoE and 24VAC power supplies. In operation, the camera benefits from highly accurate auto-return positioning that ensures the positioning index is never lost, even if the camera has been forced to change angle.

  • Powerful, Cost-Free Privacy Masking Available Now

    We’ve also launched and Dynamic Privacy Masking (IDPM) our completely cost-free privacy tool. IDPM offers a quick and efficient solution to the previously labor-intensive, and at time prohibitively expensive, problem of obscuring or “de-identifying” persons in surveillance footage who are incidental, irrelevant, or protected by law when footage is to be reviewed by, shared with, or provided to a third party.

  • Doing our Part to Create a Better World

    The IDIS “Create a Better World Campaign,” first announced in April at ISC West, continues as part of our long term celebration of the things we do as people and communities to improve the world around us. IDIS announced the new campaign with a heartwarming video, noting the good we find in the world around us, inviting others to share the good they find around them with us on social media, with one commenter receiving a Smart Home Starter Pack, courtesy of IDIS, and the announcement of a community organization to receive a donation of IDIS security equipment in support of their own mission. We are pleased to announce Bruce Hunter as the winner of the Smart Home Starter Pack and that IDIS will be making a donation to Emily’s Place, a Dallas-area organization creating a better world by providing a safe living space and facilitating transition programs for those leaving abusive situations.

  • Keeping Campuses Safe for Learning

    At IDIS, we firmly believe the focus of our nation’s educators and those who support them should be on the education of students, not common headaches and worries associated with video surveillance. That’s one of the values we’ll be bringing to our participation in the 2019 Campus Safety Conference in Dallas, TX, on July 21-23. There IDIS will feature video surveillance solutions that reduce the time, money, and effort typically spent on security, but best spent on education. Come by our table at the 2019 Campus Safety Conference in (or send us a message) to learn how technologies ranging from our cost-effective Full HD bullet and dome cameras through our award-winning 5MP and 12MP Super Fisheye cameras with “rubber band” and “slingshot” Smart UX controls (increasing performance and coverage, while reducing the number of cameras needed to cover large spaces) deliver easy to install, use, and maintain surveillance with a lower total cost of ownership.


    IDIS has partnered with the Salvation Army of North Texas and KOTRA, the Korean Trade-Investment Promotion Agency, to outfit the organization’s newest Lewisville, TX location with a comprehensive video surveillance system in support of the Salvation Army’s important work in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The donated equipment, including IDIS’s award-winning Fisheye technology, will help to ensure the safety and security of the renown charitable and service organization’s staff, volunteers, and clients, at a new location set to ultimately house administrative offices, training and financial services areas, and music and sports programs.
