Smaller than 3" in height and length, the 720p Day/Night Box Camera from Panasonic can be used to discretely monitor areas, without clashing with your decoration. The camera features a 1/4 type progressive CMOS image sensor and a 3.6mm fixed lens to smoothly record goings-on at a 57° horizontal and 34° angle of view. The camera uses an electrical day/night function and 3D-DNR to offer clear pictures without high levels of noise. The camera can be programmed to recognize motion in four specific areas set by the administrator, and includes privacy masking in two selectable areas. When using a group of cameras, prioritized stream control allows the administrator to set the priority of each camera so specific areas are monitored with higher precedence. The camera offers IPv4 and IPv6 for easy setup.
