Wireless Internet Camera for Home/SOHO Security
Where to buy

Description

The DCS-900W wireless Internet camera is designed as a cost-effective security system for home and the small office. This camera connects to an 802.11b wir eless network and an Ethernet network in a building, or to the broadband Internet. Equipped with a built-in Web server and softwar e for multi-camera monitoring and management, this camera provides a complete system for effective surveillance from anywhere at the local site or via the Internet.

Stand-alone System With Integrated Web Server
This Internet camera comes with a built-in CPU and Web server, providing a low-cost solution capable of solving demanding security and home/office monitoring needs. Its integrated Web server eliminates the need to connect the camera to a computer. Once installed, you use the built-in  IP address to gain access to the camera, make changes to camera settings, and view live video.

Web-based Remote Access
For remote security monitoring, you can install your camera at your home or the office, then view the images from anywhere via a computer running Internet Explorer or Netscape. Directly connected to the Internet without going through any computer, this camera is simple to install and
can easily integrate with your network environment.

Motion Detected Recording
Instead of recording 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, images can also be recorded only when motions are detected. This saves your disk space and eliminates the time wasted to view unnecessary images. Images can be directly archived straight to your computer hard drive or to a Network Attached Storage.

Multi-Camera Monitoring
Surveillance software, called "IPView Lite", is included to let you view up to 4 cameras on a single computer screen at one central location. Images can be recorded to your computer's hard drive manually or according to a pre-set schedule.

High-Quality Video
The DCS-900 supports video resolutions at up to 640 x 480 dpi. The camera uses M-JPEG to stream live video at up to 20 frames per second for real-time viewing.

802.11b Wireless LAN and Ethernet Connection
The DCS-900W is equipped with dual LAN interfaces: an 802.11b wireless LAN interface and a 10/100BASE-TX Fast Ethernet interface. This allows you to connect the camera to both a wireless network and a wired network at home or in a building, and to broadband Internet (via a home gateway router).
