At nearly 1/10th the cost of traditional Gen. 3 analog night vision devices, the Aurora won’t break the budgets of local and state Search & Rescue (SAR) teams.
Understanding that most search and rescue teams are volunteer or privately funded, we made it our mission to produce night vision devices that are accessible to all SAR teams.
The SiOnyx night vision sensor and optics provide long-range visibility as far as the eye can see.
Use the SiOnyx as a handheld monocular or mount the camera and stream wirelessly back to a smartphone or tablet.
All SiOnyx cameras are IP67-rated for water-resistance, ensuring high-performance in wet weather conditions.

Night Vision for First Responders: Aaron Adams
Captain Paramedic - Aaron Adams discusses the advantages of using digital night vision on emergency response calls. The ability to distinguish what's going on in your environment is essential to the safety of your team/department.
BEING ABLE TO SEE IN FULL COLOR AT NIGHT, AS THOUGH IT WERE DAY, IS VERY POWERFUL.

Our current night vision camera line-up includes (1) Aurora Sport (2) Aurora and (3) Aurora Pro .
The Aurora Sport (white) is our entry level night vision camera. This camera has the same optical lens and night vision sensor as the Aurora (black), but this camera does not include GPS, is not weapons-rated and does not have loop mode. Additionally, the Aurora Sport comes with a 1-year warranty, instead of the 2-year warranty we offer on the Aurora.
The Aurora is currently our flagship product that offers all of our features. The night vision camera has also been weapons-rated and tested on an M4 rifle for 4,000 rounds. The Aurora also comes with a standard 2-year warranty.
Both the Aurora Sport and the Aurora perform in near moonless starlight without the use of any IR illuminator.
The Aurora Pro is our next-generation night vision camera scheduled to ship in early May. This camera, although similar in form factor, has a brand new opitc and low-light CMOS sensor that is rated at more than 2x low-light the performance. Pro will also come with a 32GB SD card and be able to support up to 256GB and also come with 2 batteries, instead of 1. The Aurora Pro also comes with a standard 2-year warranty. Pro is currently available for pre-order.
All SiOnyx night vision cameras are rated for 2+ hours of recording time. The device can also be used while powered by an external source and we have a lot of users who power the SiOnyx with an external battery pack for endless operation.
The SiOnyx Aurora and Aurora Sport are rated for "near moonless starlight" which is technically about 1 millilux of light and our new SiOnyx Pro Model is rated for "moonless starlight" which is about a 2x improvement in extreme low-light situations. Our devices stackup favorably to typical Gen 2 and Gen 2+ analog night vision devices.
Yes, all SiOnyx night vision cameras are IP67 water-resistent. IP67 means the unit can be dropped into a body of water up to a meter deep for half an hour and is also dust resistent too.
