Honeywell Debuts Two New 600 TVL Day/Night Bullet Cameras

Posted in Low Light with tags , , , , , , , on May 24, 2012 by zackduncan

Honeywell HBD95SXHoneywell has just introduced the all new HBD92SX and HBD95SX Day/Night bullet cameras. Each camera comes complete with IR illumination and is designed to provide high quality video 24/7 in both indoor and outdoor surveillance situations.

In addition to that, both of these cameras also include a high resolution 600 TVL 1/3″ Sony Super HAD CCD imager, Digital Noise Reduction (DNR), Digital Slow Shutter (DSS) and external controls for lens zoom, focus and camera set-up. The HBD92SX features a 2.8-12 mm F1.4 IR corrected vari-focal lens with 56 IR LEDs with a 30m range while the HBD95SX features a 5-50 mm FR1.4 IR corrected vari-focal lens with 42 IR LEDs with a 45m range.

Each camera also features installation adjustments that can be accomplished without opening the housings. Screw gears allow the installer to adjust the lens field of view and focus. The porthole at the bottom also provides access to the On Screen Display menu as well as the IR power adjustment.

Also included is a 600 TVL resolution for sharper image detail combined with DNR and DSS, which offer fantastic performance in low light situations. Degradation of image quality under low light conditions has also been reduced thanks to the DNR technology utilized in the cameras.

The F1.4 IR corrected aspherical vari-focal lenses offer a wide range of field of view settings while 12 privacy zones can be programmed per camera, enabling the end user to ensure any civil liberties are protected within the scene that is being monitored.

In addition to that, the IR LEDs provide illumination of up to 45m depending on the scene reflectivity. The IR LEDs, along with the IR cut filter moving out of the optical path, the F1.4 rating of the lenses and the amount of reflection of the IR light from the object of interest will impact the distance the camera can provide a usable image of an object.

Logitech Updates Alert Line with Indoor Night Vision Camera

Posted in Low Cost with tags , , , , , , , , on May 10, 2012 by zackduncan

Logitech Alert 750nLogitech has announced that it is expanding its line of Alert HD security cameras by adding a new indoor model that comes complete with night-vision capabilities. Logitech’s Alert line takes advantage of the HomePlug AV networking standard, which allows data and power to run over common electrical cables.

This may seem like a problem, as AC outlets aren’t located everywhere in a building. If that is a problem then Logitech also offers SKUs that offer Power over Ethernet (PoE). These models allow you to simply run a CAT5 cable to each camera and install an inline power injector at the router. The announcement made by Logitech made no mention of Power over Ethernet for the new indoor camera, though it is a strong possibility that it will be included.

Logitech’s Alert line also delivers high-resolution 720p video which streams from multiple cameras and can be viewed simultaneously on a local networked PC that is running Logitech’s Alert Commander software. In addition to that, each camera is also equipped with a 16-zone motion detector which can trigger the camera to record a video clip when objects move in front of them.

If triggered, the camera can send an email or text alert to you with the video clip attached. Recordings are then stored on the actual cameras thanks to a 2GB MicroSD  card, which is doubly beneficial as it means that your local PC won’t have to be constantly running. Also, if you are a DropBox subscriber, then you can elect to copy the recordings to their storage in the cloud.

You can also review live camera feeds remotely from any computer or mobile device that has an internet connection with Logitech offering free remote-viewing apps for Android, BlackBerry and iOS devices. In addition, Logitech’s Alert Web and Mobile Commander service provides the same viewing and control capabilities available from the software running on a local PC, though it comes with an $80 per year subscription.

Logitech will be offering the new Alert 750n Indoor Master System, which comes with the camera and the Alert Commander software, for $300. If you already have the Alert Commander system and just want the new camera then you can get that for $230. The outdoor system is available now for $350 with standalone cameras available for $280.
