The Panasonic WV-SW174W Outdoor Pan-Tilt Wireless Network Camera (NTSC) offers high-quality 24-hour video surveillance in both day and night time lighting conditions.

Designed for day/night surveillance, this network camera captures clear images at F/2.2 even in locations with a minimum illumination of 0.5 lux (B&W). The Adaptive Black Stretch technology increases visibility of subjects in dark areas of a video scene without compromising the image quality of brighter areas. The face wide dynamic range technology offers blur-free images of the human face. The pan & tilt functionality and preset map shot function allow wide area monitoring (Horizontal 180°, Vertical 123°). Furthermore, with the progressive scan technology, you can be sure to obtain blur-free images even when the object is in motion. In addition, the UniPhier LSI chip enables this network camera to simultaneously stream real-time imagery in HD resolution of 1280 x 960 at 30 fps. The electronic sensitivity enhancement function Auto (up to 16x) increases the quantity of light stored on the sensor, making the image brighter.

The wireless LAN function ((IEEE802.11 n/g/b) allows the captured images to be monitored over a wireless router. Furthermore, Wi-Fi Protected Setup enables the camera to automatically obtain the connection and security configuration settings of the wireless router.

Equipped with Digital Noise Reduction technology, the camera filters signals that could result in grainy images. When any movement is detected, alarm sources, including VMD and Panasonic alarm command, trigger actions such as FTP image transfer and e-mail notification. Furthermore, the IP55 rated water and dust-resistant housing allows this camera to be installed outdoors even in harsh weather conditions.

    Comments about Panasonic WV-SW174W Outdoor Pan-Tilt Wireless Network Camera (NTSC):

    Great Cameras. Bought two of them to put outside two pools. They are not really good wireless as if the connection is lost, i cannot view the camera again until i physically have to unplug it and plug it back in. When using Ethernet the connection is stable and works fine. The best part about the camera is def the quality of the picture. I have other Panasonic models and their pictures are good but in comparison to this model the picture is really detailed!

    Comments about Panasonic WV-SW174W Outdoor Pan-Tilt Wireless Network Camera (NTSC):

    Have the previous consumer model with an antenna. The older one works fantastically. Never drops. The new disconnect from the wireless network every couple of hours. To be fair it may be the signal, so I am in the process of adding a booster. It does get a 70%+ signal regularly, but apparently that's not enough. Would probably be fined wired.
    No night vision...which stinks. The older model had that too !
