These lights turn on automatically and a “moonlight” view combines frames to increase brightness. The frame rate of the video transmitted adjusts automatically as well depending on the bandwidth available. Also, if you are viewing the video remotely, you can take still shots and record moving pictures to the remote hard drive. Up to 16 remote users can view the feed simultaneously, enabling you to check with your coworkers or colleagues if everything is in order.

A handy feature with the Bullet is the motion detection system. The software can notify you via email immediately when motion is detected. Y-Cam also boasts that the Bullet spots motion in sophisticated ways to reduce false alarms. In addition the email, the Bullet can also automatically upload images to your website allowing crucial images to be saved instantly and remotely.
