Brickcom Bullet Camera seriesBrickcom has recently announced availability of an outdoor bullet network camera series. The Brickcom Bullet Camera series adopts Wide Dynamic Range sensors that allow the bullet camera to handle extreme variations in brightness within the same sense. It also makes it possible to view whatever the human eye is able to view under rapidly changing lighting conditions.

The Brickcom Bullet Camera series offers a highly efficient H.264/MJPEG/MPEG-4 video compression which reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without ever compromising the quality of your image. It can also deliver dual configurable video streams simultaneously at 30fps at a D1 resolution.

The Brickcom Bullet Camera series also has support for power over Ethernet which enables the bullet camera to receive power through the same cable it receives data transmission through. This makes installation simple and eliminates your need for an external power source. There is also support for SD/SDHC memory cards which allows the camera to back up local storage if a data connection is lost.

Smart Focus is a special function added to the cameras that allows users and installers to configure settings remotely in order to get the best picture quality without any complicated procedures. Brickcom also provides multiple wireless options to make connectivity to your network easier by adopting IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n technology and a 3.5G HSUPA module. Installation will not be restricted by location or landforms and the Brickcom Bullet Camera series can be set with any wireless or 3G signals.

In addition to that, the Brickcom Bullet Camera series comes with an IP67 enclosure allowing the camera to resist rust, torrential rain, high winds, dust, snow, ice or any other kind of harsh condition. The industrial fan and heater located in the Brickom Bullet Camera series also allows the cameras to resist harsh weather.

OB-100A Outdoor Bullet Camera

Posted in Bullet Camera Review with tags , , , , , on December 1, 2010 by zackduncan

Bullet cameras are one of the most popular forms of security cameras on the market right now. Their small size and affordable pricing make them eye candy to anybody looking for a cheap, reliable security camera system. Bullet cameras are also popular due to their versatility. You can use a bullet camera in just about any situation including traffic surveillance, IP surveillance, home surveillance or even business surveillance. The interchangeable feature of the bullet camera is what makes it so unique and so valued.

If you are trying to run a traffic surveillance system, an IP-based setup can provide you with traffic and accident coverage in real time. However, the installation behind such a system is arduous. Installing the Ethernet cabling which is needed for transmitting your images is difficult and expensive, and that is only part of the job. But for every problem we may find, there is always somebody with a solution. In this case, our solution comes from the company Brickcom and their OB-100A bullet camera series.

The OB-100A Bullet network camera series from Brickcom provides users with customizable IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless as well as 3G HSUPA module wireless options. This basically allows the user’s cameras to transmit images and data via a WiFi or 3G network. What is great about the OB-100A series is that with these transmission options, as well as all the other advanced features that come with the camera, you can have full 24/7 surveillance anywhere you need it.

The OB-100A is able to transmit crystal clear images without the need of extensive bandwidth due to a progressive embedded megapixel sensor, triple-code compression and simultaneous dual-stream. What’s more is that users also have the ability to view a live feed of their cameras anytime they want to from anywhere they want using any web browser or 3G mobile phone, adding even more convenience to your surveillance system.

Another things that is good about Brickcom’s camera series is the sheer amount of user friendly features that comes with it. One feature is the Smart Focus capability which allows users to adjust the focal lens via the web GUI easily. Another feature is the WPS button. The WPS button on the OB-100A gives users an easy connection to the internet and even makes the WiFi connection to an AP/Router, which can sometimes be difficult, very easy to trouble shoot. One of the main things consumers look for in a security system is the system’s user friendliness.

You don’t have to worry about the OB-100A being affected by the elements either. The cameras in the series come with an IP67 outdoor enclosure which protects them from rain, snow, wind, dust, hail and just about anything else you can imagine. The cameras are also equipped with an industrial fan and heater built-in, allowing the device to perform up to par in temperatures as low as -40ºF to as high as 140ºF.

Extensive event monitoring options are also offered by the OB-100A’s web GUI. This includes motion detection as well as audio detection. Whenever the camera is triggered by unauthorized movement, it can be scheduled to notify the user immediately by sending snapshots and video to your email account, FTP, Samba or HTTP server. Additional protection can be added to the cameras, such as alarms or smoke detectors, with a DI/DO terminal.

Needless to say, if you are interested in a top of the line outdoor bullet camera, then the OB-100A series from Brickcom is definitely worth a look. The series has all the features of a top notch camera system as well as many user friendly options and accessories out the wazoo that make it perfect for any surveillance project, regardless of size or location. is news of, for and by SMBs!… The Small & Medium Business Magazine!
