Noctis Pro: Human Body Detection is here!
Human Body Detection is now available on both 2MP and 8MP Noctis Pro turrets!

In todays blog we walk you through how to upgrade the firmware of your Noctis Pro turret cameras and enabling the new Human Body Detection.

Upgrading your 2MP turrets

Unlike the 8MP that can be upgraded from the cloud direct from either the NVR or the camera itself, the 2MP variant requires a manual upgrade (cloud upgrade coming soon). Available on the NP-C-T2E30-28 and NP-C-T2E30-28-B and can be downloaded from HERE.

Once downloaded there is a few ways to upgrade the firmware of your 2MP Turrets.
If the camera is on the LAN, the quickest and easiest is from Noctis Tools. Downloadable from HERE.
