EverFocus ESK 1000 overview

  • 1Description

Make installing and servicing IP cameras faster and easier with the ESK 1000 IP-Sidekick Camera Utility Tool from EverFocus. It features multiple ports for connecting and powering PoE and non-PoE cameras, and a USB port to charge mobile devices and accessories. A built-in WiFi router provides direct wireless connectivity to smartphones and tablets to use the companion EF Sidekick app for Android and iOS mobile devices. The app provides access to the camera's live-view, PTZ, and audio functions right at the installation site, enabling the technician can stay on their ladder to set the camera position and focus without needing a laptop and long cables, or a second person monitoring from the control room and relaying directions.

The Sidekick runs on a high-capacity rechargeable battery pack for working in the field or away from power outlets. A series of LEDs indicate the current battery charge in 20% intervals. To protect the batteries and circuitry, several systems have been integrated including overcharge, over-discharge, short circuit, over-heating, and excessive load.

Output Ports
  • RJ-45 Ethernet Power-over-Ethernet port to connect cameras and power PoE compatible cameras
  • 12VDC port to power non-PoE or DC powered cameras

    EverFocus ESK 1000 reviews

    ESK 1000 IP-Sidekick Camera Utility Tool is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Limited functionality for non-EverFocus cameras Despite the claim on the packaging Supports all brands of IP cameras, I found its support of my Q-See cameras was very limited. It powers them OK, but the iPad App is extremely primitive - the only way to make it work was to figure out the RTSP URL. I found it courtesy of the iSpy@ For my system it was rtsp://admin:admin@192.168.1.100:554/cam/realmonitor?channel=1&subtype=1. Even so, the App will not rotate the picture to make it a reasonable size. I think the app is really only written to support EverFocus cameras. Safari would not connect to the camera either. Yet the packaging has a large photo of a technician smiling as she looks at an iPad! On my Android smartphone, the App did nothing at all. On a Windows 7 machine, IE 11 could log onto the camera, and get a good image without using an App, so that is a good way to go if you have a Windows machine that you're willing to take to the top of the ladder with you! I ended up using the app with my iPad only to find the IP address of the camera, then I used an IP camera app from another company to interact with the camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant tool... Had mine for years. Absolutely brilliant... I don't use the supplied app, (IP address login(settings) or cam manufacturer app(live-view)), the device is brilliant for setup / aligning / changing settings, etc... Battery lasts AGES... Good range for a 4cm x4cm Wifi Module!!! Awesome tool... In the right hands... Had mine for years.
