Nortek Security & Control LLC, a Nortek Company and leader in the security and home control markets, recently announced their full line of 2GIG® IP video solutions, complete with indoor and outdoor mini dome camera and indoor WiFi camera, as well as a feature-rich network video recorder (NVR) for a range of new surveillance solutions for the security market. This suite of products offers a mobile app, at no extra cost, for remote viewing and playback of video on iOS and Android devices. “The line of 2GIG video products was designed to provide dealers with attractive and sleek-looking interior and exterior-grade cameras for residential customers seeking high-definition recording and playback, both at home and on-the-go,” said Rob Halligan, Group Vice President of Marketing, Nortek Security & Control. “The new video products provide dealers with a robust surveillance solution that’s easy to install, but even easier for the consumer to use to better keep an eye on things at home or their small business.” 2GIG Indoor/Outdoor Mini Dome cameras Packed with features, the small form factor of the new 2GIG Indoor/Outdoor Mini Dome cameras make them easy for dealers to install anywhere the customer wants surveillance coverage, while one-wire installation significantly cuts down on installation time and required resources. Only one CAT-5 Ethernet cable, connected to either a PoE powerline adaptor or to the 2GIG NVR, is required to power the camera and receive its video signal. To keep a watchful eye on the property both day and night, the 2GIG Mini Dome Cameras feature 1080p High Definition video capture and IR night vision up to 30 feet. 2GIG Indoor WiFi camera with integrated IR illuminators The 2GIG Indoor WiFi camera is ideal for monitoring the interior of a home or small business and captures footage at 720p HD resolution at 30 fps. With a built-in PIR sensor, dealers can program the camera to record footage continuously or only when motion is detected. The integrated IR illuminator provides the camera with night vision and an integrated microphone and speaker enables two-way audio so the customer can not only see what’s going on, but hear it as well. Both indoor and outdoor models feature edge storage capabilities which enables the dealer or consumer to install a SD Micro Card (up to 32 GB), and record continuous or motion only events directly to the camera. 2GIG NVR - Easily connects cameras and provides power to record video directly The brain of the 2GIG video solutions system is the 2GIG NVR, which enables installers to easily connect cameras and provides power to the cameras to record video directly over the network with no monthly fees. This video solution is known as a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) system that does not require third-party monitoring, or cloud storage fees. The 2GIG NVR features four PoE (power over Ethernet) ports and four channel real-time recording at full 1080p HD resolution. The NVR also supports alarm input and outputs that can be used to connect to alarm systems and other devices. Dual display outputs for both HDMI and VGA enables homeowners to connect the 2GIG NVR directly to their TV or computer monitor for easy, instant viewing of live, or stored footage. Users away from home can also download the free 2GIG Video Apps on to their iPhone®, iPad®, or Android® device to play back video footage, view live 720p or 1080p real-time video, or configure video options. All of the new 2GIG video solutions and accessories come backed by a 2 year warranty and provide a great addition to home and small business security.
