Our current camera line-up includes (1) Aurora Sport (2) Aurora Black (3) Aurora Standard and (4) Aurora Pro.
The Aurora Sport (white) is our entry level night vision camera designed for coastal environments. This Sport has the same optical lens and night vision sensor as the Aurora (black). This camera does not include GPS, is not weapons-rated and does not have loop mode. Additionally, the Aurora Sport includes a 1 year warranty, instead of the 2-year warranty we offer on the Aurora Standard or Pro.
The Aurora Black was made in response to market demand for a low-cost tactical night vision optic. Designed for rugged conditions, the Aurora Black has been tested on an M4 up to 4,000 rounds of .223 / 5.56. The Aurora Black does not include GPS functions and has a 2-year warranty.
The Aurora Standard (black/green) is the world's first color digital night vision camera. The Aurora (Standard) is one of our most advanced cameras and comes with an integrated compass, GPS, accelerometer and is augmented reality (AR) capable. The Sport, Black, and Standard all include our patented ultra low-light sensor that empowers the viewer to see in full color down to 2 millilux or near moonless-starlight conditions.
The Aurora Pro is our flagship full color digital night vision optic. The Pro is our latest development with both new sensor technology and enhanced optics giving the viewer the most advanced digital night vision capabilities. The Pro has all of the Aurora features you’ll need including GPS compass, weapons rated for .223/5.56, and is Augmented Reality (AR) capable. The Pro was designed with extreme environments in mind and has all of the great recording and streaming functionality as the rest of the Aurora line.
Night vision and Thermal are very different technologies. You can think of night vision as a super-power that allows you to see, just like your natural eye, but in very dark conditions. All night vision needs a little bit of ambient light to work, for example the moon or some starlight. Additionally, the SiOnyx night vision is full color and our Pro version will operate in "moonless starlight" conditions.
Thermal picks up on "heat signatures", not visible light. The benefits of thermal is that you don't need any ambient light and you can see in the pitch black as it's not looking for visible light, and only reading heat signatures. Powerful enough thermal can also punch through fog, again because it's not looking for visi- ble light, and only reading heat signatures.
Unlike thermal, color night vision will allow you to identify what kind of animal is looking back at you in the darkness. Whereas thermal, will only pick up their heat signature.
A fully charged battery is generally good for about two hours of continuous video recording. To extend your battery, follow these tips: turn the camera off when you’re not using it, turn off WiFi/GPS/EIS/audio, reduce the brightness of the viewfinder, and enable the Auto Power Off feature.
