    Which is the detection distance for weapons with IVA Pro Visual Gun Detection?




    The detection distance (based on the pre-defined requirements*) depends on the focal length and the size of the of the gun. 

    For example, using the FLEXIDOME 5100i 2 MP, with a gun size of 20 cm (7.9 in), the detection distance varies between 2.7 m (8.9 ft) (f = 3.2 mm) and 12.6 m (41.3 ft) (f = 10.5 mm), depending on the focal length as shown in the table:

    Focal length

    Detection range (m)

    Detection range (ft)

    3.2 mm



    10.5 mm



    *Required pre-defined conditions: the scene must be well illuminated (at least 200 lux), the gun must cover at least 5% of the image height, less than 50% occluded and visible for at least one second.

    **Evaluation based on video sequences: If a gun is detected at least once in the video sequence, it is considered an alarm.



    • Detection requires the object to be occluded by less than 50%
    • Top-down view (bird's eye view) is not supported
    • Objects need to be visible for at least 1 second
    • Not available in corridor mode with 90° image rotation
    • Object color not available
    • Minimum object size of 36 ppf (pixels per foot) to ensure proper detection
