Overview
  • 1Description

The Panasonic BB-HCM371A is a wireless security and surveillance camera that can be connected to the internet for viewing its output virtually anywhere in the world. All that is needed is a web browser to view in your computer, PDA or properly equipped cell phone. The camera can communicate wirelessly with standard 802.11b/g wireless devices allowing flexibility to install and operate the camera without running network wires. Special web encryption helps to protect your wireless network from illegal intrusion. Each camera comes with a built-in web server with IP address. The camera will operate in a wide range of temperatures as well as being somewhat water resistant so you may decide to use it outdoors as well as indoors.

Can Be Used Outdoors
This model was designed for outdoor operation, and meet both IPX4 and UL6500 standards of outdoor equipment. They operate down to -4°F and up to 122°F, and are splash resistant for wet-weather operation.
802.11b/g Wireless Communication & Ethernet Connection
This camera can communicate wirelessly with standard 802.11b/g wireless devices, allowing the flexibility to install and operate the camera without running network wires. Special encryption software protects your wireless network from illegal intrusion. Since the camera is attached through an Ethernet connection and power source you won't need a computer at each location you want monitored. Each camera has a built-in web server with IP address. To view the images on a PC, simply open a graphics-capable Web browser and type in the camera's specific Internet address.
Two-Way Voice Communication
Use of the built-in microphone and a separately purchased amp-equipped speaker enables two-way voice communication between the network camera and a PC used to monitor the camera image. In addition to conventional monitoring of images and sound, voice messages can be transmitted from the PC to the network camera. Voice transmission and reception can be switched easily from the PC used to monitor the image.
Records to SD Memory Cards
The BB-HCM371A features an SD Memory Card slot for recording images captured by the network camera directly onto an SD Memory Card. Memory cards are optional accessories and sold separately. Audio cannot be recorded in this method.
Remote Control
Using a standard Web browser, video display, or even a compatible cell phone or PDA, you can control the movement of this camera. There is 120° of Pan (left and right) movement and 65° of Tilt (up and down) movement available. You can also assign a "Home Position" that allows you to return the camera to a pre-designated shooting position. Up to eight shooting positions can be registered in advance, so you can aim the camera exactly where you want it. You can also click on the part of the image you want to see, and automatically bring that part to the center of the screen.
