IP Tube 4 MPx (2.8-12 mm, licence plate/ANPR)

Barrier open or closed? Only registered number plates can pass through the automatic access control. Easy to implement with the stand-alone camera, without PC/NVR. Alternatively: connected via IP network.


This IP camera delivers video streams in high 4 MPx resolution at 25 fps. The corrosion and weatherproof camera (IP67, NEMA 4X) monitors the outdoor area, thanks to IR LEDs with a range of 50 m by day and night. Access the LAN camera conveniently via app.

Automatically recognise vehicles and number plates
Thanks to intelligent object recognition, the security camera first detects the vehicle, then the number plate.

Automatic access control
Gates and barriers are controlled by comparing the number plates with positive/negative lists: Only authorised vehicles are allowed to pass. All this is done autonomously by the camera, including a push alarm to the app. This also creates time and cost advantages in work processes (e.g. car park, logistics, construction site).

Best overview even at a distance
The motorised zoom lens with 2.8-12 mm focal length (4.2x optical zoom) covers a range of 42°-114°. Adjust focal length and focus easily on the web browser - even by one person alone.

Recording and compatibility
Save recordings on microSD card, ABUS recorder or via video management software.

Quick installation
The free ABUS IP Installer software for network setup.

Notes: Power is supplied via PoE or plug-in power supply unit (accessory).
The effective IR range will vary depending on the installation location.

For safe and proper operation, this device must be installed and regularly maintained by a professional trained by us. Arrange regular maintenance appointments with your installer to ensure trouble-free operation in the long term with the latest security updates and new functions.

Product advantages

  • 4 MPx resolution (2,688 × 1,520 @ 25 fps) for accurate surveillance images and number plate recognition
  • 2.8-12 mm motorised zoom lens (4x optical zoom, 42°-114° viewing angle) for flexible choice of installation location, depending on the distance to the surveillance area (e.g. driveway, barrier)
  • Number plate recognition on vehicles (up to max. 70 km/h), fully automatic for entrances, in car parks, on construction sites, etc. (ANPR: Automatic Number Plate Recognition)
  • Use as a stand-alone camera (without additional devices, licence plate lists on SD card in the camera, app notification in the event of unauthorised entry) or in conjunction with recorder (NVR) or PC (ABUS CMS software)
  • Intelligent object recognition: in ANPR mode, first the vehicle is recognised by the shape and then the number plate (protection against manipulation with dummies)
  • 140 dB WDR function to effectively compensate for image contrasts, strong backlighting, etc., Ultra Low-Light Performance for top image results in low-light conditions
  • IR LEDs for clear images in the dark (up to 50 m range)
  • Very robust, vandalism- and weather-proof housing (IK10, IP67) plus corrosion protection (NEMA 4X), optimal for mounting at low heights (splash water, salt, dirt) or use near the coast (salty air)
  • microSD card slot for comparison lists and internal data storage (optional: encryption)
  • Supports H.264, H.265, MJPEG (incl. Dynamic GOP); 12 V DC & PoE (802.3af)
