Legrand has expanded its IP-based security camera solution with the On-Q IP Dome Camera (CM7020), enclosure-mounted Network Video Recorder (NVR; CM7120) and app to provide 24/7 surveillance for the home.
Designed for operation in any space, the On-Q IP Dome Camera is triggered by motion sensors to take pictures, capture 1080p HD video, and send e-mail alerts to homeowners. Once alerted, or at any other time, users can log into the camera via the On-Q IP Camera App to observe what’s occurring on their property via live video feeds.
“The Dome Camera, NVR and app add additional capabilities to Legrand’s security camera solution, which in the end helps homeowners feel safe regarding their home and family with automatic alerts and the ability to immediately view their property day or night,” said Fritz Werder, Legrand VP/general manager, On-Q and Nuvo product lines. “No matter where they are, users can quickly determine if there is a threat in or near their homes and whether any action is required.”
The camera features professional-grade night vision that enables users to see up to 50 feet in total darkness without loss of resolution. To give users additional peace of mind, its varifocal lens allows for motorized remote camera zooming for close-ups that provide a better look at any corner of their property.
On-Q AppAn ample 32GB of MicroSD storage is built into the camera for basic recording, and extended recording is possible when it is used with Legrand’s CM7120 Network Video Recorder. In addition to standalone use with the app, the camera can be integrated into the On-Q Intuity home automation system for an even more powerful home surveillance solution.
Durably built for vandal and weather resistance, the camera’s compact dimensions (less than 6 inches by 4 inches) make it well suited for indoor and outdoor use. It installs easily over a single-gang electrical box and is powered by a single PoE cable, so that it does not require a separate outlet.
Because of the importance of having a visual record of events for security purposes, Legrand is also shipping the On-Q NVR, which can power and record from up to four IP cameras. It also sends and receives triggers from a home’s security panel to manage monitoring and sound alerts as appropriate.
The On-Q NVR is designed specifically for residential use and it is easily configurable through a web-based interface and an HDMI connection to a four-camera HDTV display. It supports open standards, such as OnVif 2.1, for use with a growing list of third-party cameras, and natively mounts in structured wiring enclosures.
Corresponding with the launch of the Dome Camera and NVR, Legrand announced an update to its Legrand camera app (version 2.1) for iOS and Android devices. Homeowners can stream camera feeds live on an HDTV or view them remotely through the app. The app also enables users to set recording schedules, view activity remotely, and play back video with time and event search functions.
