Y-cam Solutions Ltd, the leading UK based manufacturer of easy to use network cameras, announced the Y-cam EyeBall, the company's first mini-dome style IP camera.
Designed for discrete monitoring in office, retail and hospitality applications, the palm-sized dome has been built with ease-of-installation in mind. Just one cable runs from the device, and a one-click-install bracket allows for rapid fitting to walls or ceilings.
By using Y-cam's uniquely developed Push & Point™ lens system, the complexities of installing and calibrating traditional dome cameras have also been removed - adjustments to the viewing angle can be easily made without the need for a toolkit.
"The EyeBall continues the Y-cam tradition of making things easier for users", commented Devin Chawda, Chief Executive of Y-cam Solutions, "The simplified fitting and setup of the EyeBall now means that small business owners can install a security system themselves without the need for engineers or technicians, and our Push and Point lens system means that adjustments can be made to their cameras view without a screwdriver in sight."
The EyeBall is equipped with the traditional Ethernet and Power-over-Ethernet network connections, and understanding the need for flexibility, is also equipped with built-in Wi-Fi, allowing the EyeBall to slot seamlessly into any infrastructure, and cementing Y-cam's position as a leader in wireless camera technology.
Compact in size, but not in quality, the unobtrusive EyeBall comes packed full of features; high quality full colour images, motion detection, 2-way audio, direct recording to virtually any NAS drive with NAS-Ready™, on-board microSD recording, and an enhanced "Moonlight" mode for low light vision. More importantly for users, is the ability to login to cameras from any internet-enabled device and view their camera remotely.
Simplifying this process, the Y-cam EyeBall is supported by Y-cam's free multi-camera viewing software, Y-cam MultiLive, available for PC and Mac, as well as free smartphone versions for iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Symbian devices, allowing users to stay in touch easily from any location.
