CE Pros know Metra best for its Ethereal Home Theater line, featuring high-performance HDMI cables and accessories.

But the company also has been expanding its line of audio components, mounts, power products, LED lighting – all under its Audio Solutions and Helios brands – as well as a full range of surveillance systems under the Spyclops brand.

At the ISC West 2015 security expo in Las Vegas next week, Metra (booth #29109) will showcase its entire new line of Spyclops CCTV products, including indoor/outdoor dome and bullet cameras designed with Sony technology.

The line includes camera accessories, as well as DVRs and DVR kits designed to work with compatible power distribution systems.

There is, of course, a remote surveillance service with 24/7 access via Web browser or smart phone.

Specifically, the Spyclops line includes bullet indoor/outdoor security cameras; domestic dome style cameras; 16-, 8- and 4-channel DVRs; 5-, 9- and 18-way power distribution boxes and various security cable.

Metra’s three new DVRs feature full 960H recording capability on all channels. In addition to higher recording resolution, the new DVRs offer four sensor inputs with one alarm output, as well as upgraded hard drives that are designed for 24/7 use.

In addition, “Metra’s technical expertise and commitment to innovation ensure the most advanced and highest quality security, home technology, and datacomm cable in the market,” according to the company.

Accessories include power and video cables, splitters, on-screen display (OSD) controllers, and baluns to run CAT5/6a instead of coax between cameras.
