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. The simplified fitting and setup will allow installers to reduce the time required on site," said Simon Carr, Global Sales Manager at Y-cam Solutions, "and the cameras fantastic compatibility with 3rd party NAS and NVR drives gives us a solid edge when specifying a professional, but affordable, security solution".
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. The Y-cam EyeBall is supported by Y-cam's free VMS, Y-cam MultiLive, available for both PC and Mac, and as smartphone applications for iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Symbian devices.
