The Panasonic BL-C131A network camera makes it easy to keep an eye on your property while you're away on business or vacation. Simply log on to the Internet using a PC or even a compatible cell phone or PDA device and instantly access camera images from virtually anywhere. You can also use a standard Web browser to move the cameras pointing direction as well as to activate its digital zoom to bring objects of interest into close view. Equipped with 802.11g wireless technology, you can easily move it from room to room, within the wireless range, without the hassle of running network cables.

Free IP Address

This camera can be assigned a free, easy to remember IP address such as http://bob.viewnetcam.com, which unlike Dynamic IP addresses stays with this camera permanently. There's also no need to install any specialized software as all the required programs are already embedded in the camera. Should you mistakenly confuse camera settings, simply press the factory default button which will automatically return the camera to its default settings.

802.11g Wireless Operation

By combining network and wireless technology, this camera gives you both convenience and remote Internet viewing. Take the camera from room to room as needed and then access its images from virtually anywhere simply by logging on to the Internet using a PC or even a compatible cell phone or PDA device. For added versatility, this camera features an on-board Ethernet port for direct connection to your network hub.

Simultaneous MPEG-4 and JPEG Video Streaming

Video can be captured in the MPEG-4 and JPEG formats simultaneously. This allows a user to view live video in the fast MPEG-4 format while recording is taking place in the higher resolution JPEG method. A user can also choose one over the other to suit a particular network requirement.

Remote Pan & Tilt and 10x Digital Zoom

With the simple click of a mouse, a remote Internet user can activate the camera's motorized pan & tilt function to point the lens in a desired direction. Images can also be digitally magnified up to 10x to bring them into close view.

Built-In Microphone

A built-in microphone provides one-way voice communication to a PC user over the network.

Human Detection Sensor

A built-in sensor uses a combination of motion and heat detection to detect a human entering a room. This will trigger the camera to capture images which can be sent over the network to an Email address or to an FTP server. Human detection is fully programmable for threshold and sensitivity.

Privacy Mode Button

To ensure that your privacy is not compromised, you can easily take the camera off the network by pressing a button directly on the camera. This can also be done remotely over the network on a system administrator level.
