Nortek Security & Control introduced a line of IP video solutions today. The 2GIG IP video solutions include an indoor/outdoor mini dome camera, an indoor WiFi camera, and a network video recorder (NVR). This suite of products offers a mobile app, at no extra cost, for remote viewing and playback of video on iOS and Android devices.
“The line of 2GIG video products was designed to provide dealers with attractive and sleek-looking interior and exterior-grade cameras for residential customers seeking high-definition recording and playback, both at home and on-the-go,” said Rob Halligan, group vice president of marketing, Nortek Security & Control. “The new video products provide dealers with a robust surveillance solution that’s easy to install, but even easier for the consumer to use to better keep an eye on things at home or their small business.”
The small form factor of the 2GIG Indoor/Outdoor Mini Dome cameras facilitate installation, while one-wire installation significantly cuts down on installation time and required resources. Only one CAT-5 Ethernet cable, connected to either a PoE (power over Ethernet) powerline adaptor or to the 2GIG NVR, is required to power the camera and receive its video signal. The 2GIG Mini Dome cameras capture video at 1080p resolution and IR night vision up to 30 feet.
The 2GIG Indoor WiFi camera captures footage at 720p HD resolution at 30 fps. With a built-in PIR sensor, dealers can program the camera to record footage continuously or only when motion is detected. The integrated IR illuminator provides the camera with night vision and an integrated microphone and speaker enables two-way audio. Both indoor and outdoor models feature edge storage capabilities which enables the dealer or consumer to install a SD Micro Card (up to 32 GB), and record continuous or motion only events directly to the camera.
The 2GIG NVR uses a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) system that does not require third-party monitoring, or cloud storage fees. The 2GIG NVR features four PoE ports and four channel real-time recording at full 1080p HD resolution. The NVR also supports alarm input and outputs that can be used to connect to alarm systems and other devices.
Dual display outputs for both HDMI and VGA enables homeowners to connect the 2GIG NVR directly to their TV or computer monitor for instant viewing of live, or stored footage. Users away from home can also download the free 2GIG Video Apps on to their iPhone, iPad, or Android device to play back video footage, view live 720p or 1080p real-time video, or configure video options.
