The Panasonic BB-HCM581A is a professional grade IP network camera that can be accessed for viewing and PTZ control from a remote Internet location using a PC or even a cell phone or PDA device. Its high level of performance coupled with its stylish and compact design makes it an excellent choice for use in financial centers, government facilities, transportation hubs and similar critical modern surveillance environments.

A PTZ camera may initially be higher in cost, but when operated strategically, can be used in place of multiple fixed cameras, making it a cost saver in the long run.

Audio I/O Ports
By attaching an external microphone and speaker to this camera's audio I/O ports, users will be able to hear and speak with a person at the camera location over the network. This is a useful feature in stores, factories or any other application requiring two-way voice communication.
PoE (Power over Ethernet)
PoE has the ability to transmit power to the camera over the Ethernet cable. This will allow camera placement in areas with no direct access to an AC outlet. When used with a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply), PoE also guarantees the camera's uninterrupted operation in the event of a power failure.
SD Card Slot
Images can be stored to an optional SD memory up to 2GB in capacity that is inserted into the camera. This will allow images to be quickly transferred from the camera for viewing on a PC. It can also be used to ensure continuous recording in the event of a network failure.
Analog Video Output
For maximum versatility, this camera features an auxiliary BNC video output in addition to its standard Ethernet connection. This will allow video to be viewed and recorded using conventional analog monitors and DVRs and can also be used as a backup method in case of a network failure. In analog mode, the camera auto switches to interlaced scanning, to minimize flicker in motion images.
Motion Detection w/Email Alerts
A motion detection function greatly enhances security functionality. By recording only relevant material, motion detection significantly cuts down on network and storage requirements. It also makes it easier to locate event footage. Motion detection events can be sent over the network in the form of an Email alert, and can also be used to trigger the camera to point in the direction of the movement.
