The rate of false alarms triggered by small animals, tree movement, shadows, rain, snow and bright lights is significantly lower than traditional IVS and motion detection solutions.
An advanced predictive algorithm enables the camera to identify objects and separate SMD and IVS alarms into two categories; People or Vehicles while simultaneously filtering out unwanted notifications from bugs, small animals, etc.
The new AI SEARCH function allows you to quickly search and sort video footage by alarm type. You can search for alarms triggered by people or by vehicles. Ultimately saving you valuable time when reviewing footage.
AI IVS Motion Detection, Tripwire and Perimeter Protection Solution
Montavue’s AI was designed mainly for creating more accurate tripwires and helping with perimeter protection. SMD (smart motion detection) takes it further and allows for human and vehicle detection across the entire scene that the camera is looking at. Testing shows that AI-enabled cameras can significantly reduce false alarms from small animals, plant movement, shadows, and bright lights. In fact, false notifications for those events are often less that 2%. This means a much higher detection accuracy rate, primarily for people and vehicles (+95%). The reality is that most situations that you would even want a push notification for are when a person or vehicle enters your property or crosses over a perimeter line that they are not supposed to. If you do need notifications for other events you can still use our standard motion detection and IVS features. The AI camera will be able to detect whether a person or a vehicle triggered the alarm, while ignoring the false notifications listed above. These cameras use an advanced predictive algorithm to identify the object based on speed, size, and movement. This will help significantly reduce the impact of the environment that the camera is in (shadows, tree leaves blowing, etc) and help zero in on important alarms. You will also be able to use the “Smart AI Search” feature on your NVR to search through all of your notifications. You will have the option to search for human detection, vehicle detection, or both. Just like Montavue’s normal IVS features you will be able to receive real-time push notifications for all AI triggered events, allowing you to take action quickly.
Color imaging in low light conditions & IR night vision
Our MTZ4040-IRIASMD PTZ camera has the best night vision on the market with a STARVIS™ Starlight image sensor that gives you full-color video in low-light conditions. The low-light conditions piece is critical, as there is no such thing as night vision that is color, don’t be fooled by other marketing materials. Our Color Night Optics only needs 0.005Lux (measurement of light) without IR to produce a color image, our competition needs .1 lux without IR to produce that same color image, almost 20x as much light.
4 Megapixel Pan-Tilt-Zoom PTZ Camera with 4 x Optical Zoom
Large areas such as parking lots, warehouses, lobbies, and more can be difficult to monitor closely and may take 20 cameras to accomplish the same views as this one 4MP 4x PTZ camera. The Montavue MTZ4040-IRIASMD is equipped with an incredible 4MP resolution lens, and can pan 0º-355º, and tilt from 5° ~ 90° which enables you to cover incredible distances and areas with just a single PTZ camera. The speeds match the features with 0.1° ~70° per second panning, and 0.1° ~30° per second tilt.
Real-Time 30 Frames-per-Second (FPS) Recording at 4MP 2K Resolution
The Montavue MTZ4040-IRAISMD pan-tilt-zoom PTZ camera records real-time at 30FPS in 4MP 2K resolution. What does that mean? It means that when an object is moving at normal speeds the camera is recording in real-time so it won’t be blurry. Compare that to the competition’s 4MP PTZ cameras. For most of the competition’s 4MP cameras, especially ones sold at retailers and warehouse clubs, they only record at 15-20FPS. That is half the speed of our 4MP cameras, and only one of the major differences between our cameras and the competition's.
- Montavue MTZ4040-IRAISMD network PTZ camera records at 30FPS in 4MP 2K Resolution
- 30FPS is real-time to reduce blurry images with movement
- Most of the competition’s cameras record at 15-20FPS in 4MP resolution, creating blurry images with movement
Superior Clarity and Resolution
Montavue PTZ cameras are equipped with the best components made on the market to produce the clearest image possible. We strive to produce quality cameras that will give each one of our customers the best image at a very competitive price. Every Montavue PTZ camera is equipped with industry-leading True Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), Backlight Compensation (BLC), Highlight Compensation (HLC), and 3D Dynamic Noise Reduction technologies (3D DNR). WDR, BLC, and HLC all fix lighting issues with producing a quality image by minimizing the effects of bright backgrounds and foregrounds and lights in between. The goal is to produce an image that looks similar to if you were there in person. 3D DNR is an important feature for night vision and low light video. It reduces the fuzzy hazy images that are produced from noise transmitted from the camera, which creates a clearer image, cuts down on storage, and reduces false motion alerts.
Intelligent Video Surveillance (IVS)
The MTZ4040-IRAISMD IP PTZ camera is equipped with our Intelligent Video Surveillance features. These include tripwire, face detection, intrusion, missing object, and abandoned object. Those IVS features allow you to monitor the area you are covering very precisely and efficiently, so you are only alerted when you want to be according to your settings. You can know exactly when someone or object crosses an invisible line, leaves or enters a space, and more.
- Tripwire: Draw a line by the door, when someone crosses that line your camera will notify you with a push notification to your mobile device and record that scene.
- Abandoned Object: Great for lobbies, airports, banks, etc. This is used by designating a detection zone and setting a time, if an object is put in that area and it surpasses the time it is considered abandoned and will activate record, alarm and send a snapshot.
- Object Missing: This is great for valuables. You designate an object, if that object goes missing it will activate record, alarm and send a snapshot.
Simple PoE Installation – Plug and Play
When it comes to simplicity, Montavue has made it so simple that you just need to plug the included Cat5e ethernet cable into a compatible NVR, and the other end into the camera, wait a minute or two and the camera will be auto recognized and pop up on your screen. The PoE simplicity is perfect, as both power and video are transferred through the same cable. It also gives you flexibility with installation. You can run one single cable from the NVR up to 300ft, and then if you need to go further you can hook a PoE switch up and you can run it an additional 300ft for a total of 600ft. Each one of our Montavue cameras come with a 100ft cat5e cable.
With IP cameras the fun doesn’t stop there. You can bring in cameras to your NVR that are plugged in from around the world as long as they have internet access. This gives you limitless capability, and with the ONVIF compatibility of these cameras (all Montavue cameras are ONVIF compatible which means), you can use them on ONVIF compatible software and recorders. For plug and play compatibility we recommend Montavue network video recorders (NVR’s).
Want to Listen in?
The MTZ4040-IRAISMD PTZ camera has an impressive built-in audio microphone to record anything going on within about a 30+ft radius of the camera. There is no need to run a separate cable, it all transmits through the same ethernet cable. Audio recording adds another layer of security coverage to your camera by allowing you to match conversations with incidents, break-ins, etc. It also allows you to listen in on things in the area that the camera may not be viewing. This camera is packed with features and is a very affordable solution with audio compared to the competition.
*Note, audio recording without consent is illegal in some jurisdictions. You can choose to not use that feature. Montavue LLC assumes absolutely no liability for use of its products that does not conform with local laws. Please consult your local laws when using the audio feature.

Industry Leading H.265+ Video Compression for Less Storage and Bandwidth
The MTZ4040-IRAISMD IP PTZ camera is equipped with top of the line H.265+ video compression. Compression is what helps minimize the storage needed to store your video and also reduces the bandwidth needed to send video through the network and to your mobile device. With H.265+ compression, you can save up to 50% of storage compared to traditional H.264 compression. Or you can save up to 2x as much video when compared to H.264 with the same amount of storage used. Additionally, it increases the speed at which video transmits through the network and to your mobile device as they are smaller files.
- H.265+ compression reduces the amount of storage by 50% compared to traditional H.264 compression
- H.265+ compression reduces the file size which in turn increases the speed at which you receive video on your mobile devices and takes up less bandwidth on your network
Wide Field of View
When it comes to monitoring large areas, the Montavue MTZ4040-IRAISMD pan tilt zoom camera has you covered with a lens field of view ranging from 97° ~ 32° with a 4x optical zoom. On top of that, when you have this Montavue pan-tilt-zoom camera, you can monitor a full area from 0º-355º with panning. One thing to check to make sure you are comparing apples to apples between cameras, is the difference between a horizontal and diagonal field of view. Make sure that both are horizontal or diagonal.
