Richmond, London, United Kingdom, 2009/10/05 - Y-cam Solutions Ltd, a leading UK based manufacturer of innovative IP network cameras and solutions, today announced the availability of a new range of its hugely popular Y-cam IP camera.
The Y-cam is a monitoring video camera that can send high quality video and sound through any standard computer network (wired or wireless) via the internet. It connects directly to the internet through your network, so there is no need for additional hardware or a computer to be constantly on. It makes the monitoring of property, valuables or loved ones easily available and affordable.
Any Y-cam can be accessed remotely from anywhere in the world via a standard web browser by up to 16 simultaneous users. As well as viewing live video, users can take snapshots and record direct to their computer’s hard drive, plus listen in to what’s going on through the camera’s built-in microphone. Its secure encrypted wireless connectivity and password protection means only those authorised can access the camera.
The unique benefits of the Y-cam lay in its motion detection abilities. If the Y-cam detects movement in its field of vision, it can automatically send an email alert notifying the owner that motion has been detected, with an attached image of the scene. The owner can then login to their camera from anywhere in the World, using any internet-enabled device, such as PC, laptop, iPhone or Blackberry.
The new Y-cam SD range adds a microSD slot to the existing camera housing, allowing you to record the video feed, or any alerts, directly to a microSD card (commonly found in many mobile phones and digital cameras). This allows the Y-cam to be used without the need for a network connection, creating a cost effective standalone video security camera with an impressive specification. The microSD card can then be used to view images in any compatible device, such as a mobile phone or computer.
The addition of the microSD slot to the Y-cam in effect turns the camera in to an all-in-one CCTV package, offering both a high resolution video camera and DVR (Digital Video Recording) facility all in a small compact unit. There is no need for extra wires to be installed as with analogue CCTV systems, meaning the Y-cam SD has the capability to replace or upgrade old CCTV systems within minutes.
Designed with non technical users in mind, the Y-cam is very easy to install and is ideal for domestic and business use. Some people use the Y-cam in their homes to monitor their children and pets while they are working, others are using it to record and monitor their shops, offices and holiday homes. Most, however, use it for peace of mind, all wrapped in one low cost, easy to use package.
The Y-cams unobtrusive design, flat profile, smooth edges and its small size ensures that it blends into its surroundings, and can be wall mounted, ceiling mounted or placed on a flat surface using the camera stand supplied. There is also a unique external enclosure kit that fits around existing models so the user can use their cameras outdoor without compromising any of camera’s existing features.
Managing Director of Y-cam Solutions Ltd, Devin Chawda, comments on the introduction of the Y-cam SD: “We have responded to the growing demand for simple, affordable video monitoring solutions by launching the Y-cam SD – a cost-effective camera that offers both online and offline security. We have invested heavily in this technology as we strongly believe solutions like this will be the future of all video monitoring. We are confident that people who have no technical knowledge whatsoever can install this camera and make use of its many benefits.”
The SD range launches with the Y-cam Black SD, an updated version of the Y-cam Black. The Black SD is capable of nightvision, thanks to its 30 infrared LEDs, allowing users to see clearly in pitch darkness up to a range of 12-15 metres from the camera, ideal for around-the-clock surveillance. Updated Y-cam Knight and White SD models will follow the Black SD launch later in the year.
