Wireless Day & Night Internet Camera
Where to buy

Description

The DCS-3420 Wireless Day & Night Internet Camera is a versatile security system that allows you to watch and listen remotely from anywhere. This full-featured camera connects to Ethernet wired and wireless networks in a building or campus, and via broadband to the Internet. Equipped with a high-quality CCD sensor, digital zoom, low-light / no light capabilities, and advanced software functions for multi-camera monitoring and management, this camera provides a comprehensive system for surveillance over a LAN or the web.

An integrated CPU and Web server allow the DCS-3420 Internet Camera to provide a low-cost solution for home, office, and factory security monitoring needs. Its integrated Web server
eliminates the need to connect the camera to a computer. Once installed, you can use the default IP address to gain access to the camera, view live streaming video, and make changes to camera settings.

 In order to ease migration from traditional analog CCTV surveillance to IP-based digital systems, the DCS-3420 includes a standard BNC connector for analog CCTV video. The inclusion of both Ethernet and BNC connections allows you to simultaneously incorporate the DCS-3420 into both digital and analog surveillance systems. The camera also has a heat-dissipating aluminum body that is long-lasting even under the stresses of outdoor use.

The DCS-3420 uses MPEG-4 Simple Profile Mode to stream live video at up to 30 frames per  second for real-time viewing. A CCD sensor provides sharp video images with lifelike color representation, and a 4x digital zoom* capability allows for close-up viewing over the Web interface.  Using optional low-light / no light attachments, the camera has the ability to monitor and record video in rooms with minimal or no lighting, making it ideal for use in dark places.

Through a built-in microphone, you can watch and listen remotely as the DCS-3420 captures both sound and video from your site. The DCS-3420 takes surveillance to another level using two-way audio. By adding a powered speaker (not included) to the DCS-3420, you can also talk remotely with anyone at your camera site. For effective surveillance in and around a building, this camera comes with a built-in high-speed 802.11g wireless network interface, which allows images to be transmitted at up to 54Mbps. A 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet port is also provided for  connection to a wired Ethernet network or directly to the Internet via a broadband router.

The DCS-3420 adheres to the Universal Plug-n-Play specification, which allows computers running Windows XP/ME to automatically recognize the camera and add it to the network. The DCS-3420 can be accessed and viewed from any network space.

Everything needed to deploy the DCS-3420 camera is included. Simple installation procedures, along with the built-in Web-based interface, offer easy integration into your network and security systems
