TRENDnet Launches Wireless N Internet Security Camera
Real-time streaming video can be managed from any Internet connection.
Torrance, Calif.-based TRENDnet, which specializes in wired and wireless networking hardware, announces its Wireless N Internet Camera Server with 2-Way Audio (model TV-IP512WN) that transmits real-time streaming video over the Internet. Users can view and manage the camera from any Internet connection. Wireless n technology at 300Mbps provides up to four times the coverage of comparable wireless g solutions, according to TRENDnet, and improved bandwidth to wirelessly stream security video.
Complimentary camera management software enables users to manage up to 32 TRENDnet cameras. Advanced features include multiple variable-shape motion detection recording windows, event driven email alerts, scheduled recording sessions, MPEG-4 and MJPEG image compression, and advanced hard drive storage allocation tools.
Since it has Wi-Fi Protected Setup support, the camera can be added to a wireless network at the touch of a button, says TRENDnet. Two-way audio allows users to hear and talk to people in the camera’s viewing field, and input/output ports can be hard wired to third-party alarm systems. The camera comes with a removable CS lens and features 16x digital zoom. A built-in SD card slot enables users to store images directly to a memory card. The camera housing is off-white to blend into many environments, and includes a wall/ceiling mounting kit for installation.
The camera will be available May 1 and will retail at $250.
