Add-on IP camera with pan and tilt for Phoenix View systems

This indoor dome camera works with ClearView's Phoenix digital surveillance systems. It connects to the NVR (network video recorder) via ordinary Ethernet connections. Power and video signals are both carried by the same cable, which helps keep installation easier. IP camera systems are ideal when longer cable runs are necessary. The IP-PT-87 dome camera has a fixed focal-length lens, but gives you remote control of pan and tilt movements via your Phoenix system, for convenient real-time surveillance.

A stand-alone wireless camera

The IP-PT-87 also works as a stand-alone network camera, if you just need an easy way to keep track of what's happening in one interior zone. It's a self-contained recording system, and it features Wi-Fi technology for connecting to your home network. The camera records video to a built-in MicroSD drive (cards not included, available separately). On-board motion deduction immediately records activity in your monitored zone. Thanks to the camera's infrared emitters, it'll even capture images in total darkness from up to 32 feet away. The IP-PT-87 also has a built-in microphone for capturing sounds in your monitored room.
