Cloud-connected Compact Dome security camera

Versatile and sleek, the 5MP Compact Dome AI security camera is effortless to install and manage and helps you focus on the events that require your immediate attention. Fit for discreet indoor setups, it captures every detail in demanding light conditions, making the series an ideal solution for retailers, hotels, schools, offices, gyms, and more. Compact Dome comes with built-in intelligent edge analytics and integrates seamlessly with the Ava Aware video management system. Cloud-managed Compact Dome devices include onboard storage with up to 120 days of retention. 

Say goodbye to centralized storage and analytics servers, which need to be separately purchased, configured, and maintained. Unlike traditional CCTV cameras, Compact Dome’s powerful video and audio analytics enable you to be proactive and detect threats before they turn into incidents. The Compact Dome series is designed and developed in Norway and the UK.

  1. High resolution, exceptional low light performance, and multi-exposure line-based HDR capture every detail in challenging light conditions, irrespective of the environment.
  2. Unparalleled image processing, high-resolution video encoding, and computer vision via Ambarella’s system on a chip.
  3. The acoustic sensor delivers integrated audio analytics that identifies audio events.
  4. Innovative mounting and Ethernet connection inside the camera, despite its small size—ideal for discrete installations or areas with reduced space.

Monitor video smarter with threat detection in real-time

Compact Dome devices integrate advanced intelligence via image recognition, machine learning, and acoustics. The cameras detect abnormal behavior and alert operators in real-time. The cameras also identify specific sound patterns, like screaming, gunshots, breaking glass, or loud noises, to determine the type of sound.

Deploy and add online in minutes

Deploy and add cameras online in minutes

It’s never been easier to add and configure security cameras to a deployment. Our plug-and-play configuration removes the need for usernames and passwords, pre-configuration set-up, or default settings. You can also scan the unique QR codes on the Compact Dome cameras to onboard them to the Aware Cloud video management system. And users can connect the Compact Dome to walls and ceilings using existing legacy mounts.

Capture clear and sharp details in all light conditions

Capture clear and sharp details in all light conditions

Compact Dome is a 5MP security camera that includes a ƒ/1.3 aperture, a focal length of 3.2mm, and multi-exposure line-based HDR to deliver exceptional image quality in ideal light conditions and challenging low light. The series integrates IR illumination for sharp footage even in complete darkness.

always-on security

Stay protected from cyber attacks

Cybersecurity is no longer a concern but a built-in feature of the Compact Dome series. With factory-installed certificates, camera passwords set at initialization, and end-to-end encryption, our cameras are the most secure on the market. Compact Dome is equipped with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) to provide secure encryption key storage for each camera. Software upgrades are seamless and instant, with continued access to regular automated system performance checks. What's more, Compact Dome cameras are built and designed in Europe, America, or Taiwan.


Enjoy a reliable and intelligent bandwidth optimization

Are you worried about the storage costs for your video footage while preserving all the forensic details you might need to solve cases? Dome is an intelligent video security camera that uses analytics to determine what video to record. It allows users to configure different resolutions to be used when our machine learning analytics consider the video to be either interesting or not. Also, the camera can dynamically vary the bitrate within a stream based on object detection. This allows it to show the areas of interest more clearly. Together, these mean you need less storage and less bandwidth on playback while keeping the quality where and when you need it.

Enhance visibility with powerful AI features and valuable insights


Map view with Smart Presence™

Operators can add maps of all your locations to gain more situational awareness and insights. Each map can be configured and includes camera and alarm views, along with the ability to track people and objects as they move on your premises.


Occupancy counting

With occupancy counting, security operators and administrators can monitor large facilities and keep a rolling total of the current occupancy of people and vehicles in defined locations.



Heatmaps are ideal for gaining more insights into retail, healthcare, schools and other educational facilities, public venues, hospitality locales, public transport, or federal government premises. The tool provides an enhanced awareness of customer behavior, dwell times and congestions, transportation flows, suspicious activities, and more. 


Smart Search™

Reduce forensic investigation time and gain efficiency and accuracy with the same number of operators using machine learning-powered searching. Search by event and similarity to perform appearance and image detection. With Smart Search, it is possible to quickly comb through countless hours of video across your entire implementation. 


Real-time alerts

Use rule-based templates to define notification scenarios where you will be alerted once a specific event occurs, such as loitering, line crossing, fire exit access, and more.
