Bosch NBC-255-W overview

  • 1Description

The Bosch NBC-255-W Wireless IP Camera provides a complete, cost-effective network video surveillance solution, ideal for monitoring small offices and retail businesses. Featuring a 1/4" progressive scan CMOS sensor and a varifocal lens (2.8 to 10mm), this compact camera is capable of capturing clear, detailed images (640 x 480 resolution) of moving objects.

This IP camera has a built-in microphone that allows you to hear what’s happening in the surveillance area in addition to just viewing the footage. Since this network camera supports 2-way audio (full-duplex), you can communicate with the person at the camera location (speaker sold separately).

Multicast streaming with support for 1 MJPEG and 2 H.264 streams lets you to view the video feed at multiple locations over the network. Furthermore, these compression formats can be individually customized to offer more flexibility in terms of the quality of streaming.

Motion and tamper detection with trigger delays help prevent false alarms and save on valuable disk space. An SD/SDHC card slot offers a convenient option for local video storage and also eliminates the possibility of data loss due to network disconnection.

You can integrate this wireless camera with your network via a high-speed 802.11b/g connection. Compatible with the ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) standard, this network camera works smoothly with other surveillance devices for hassle-free upgrades in the future.
