Reston, VA – August 25, 2011 – CheckVideo announced today the expansion of its product portfolio with the CheckVideo IP Camera. The CheckVideo IP Camera incorporates a camera, DVR and high-performance video analytics in a single device at a breakthrough price point. It works with the cloud-based CheckVideo Software Service to provide a complete, expandable video surveillance and recording system with video management functionality.
CheckVideo sends critical, real-time alerts users can act on to verify and prioritize alarms, shorten law enforcement response times, stop crimes in progress and reduce false alarm fines. It “watches” the CheckVideo IP Camera 24/7 for events of interest and extends the security perimeter to outdoor areas where PIR motion detection is not effective. Video alerts are based on the presence of people and vehicles, not just motion, and can be sent to a central monitoring service, email addresses, smartphones, and the secure CheckVideo Web portal.
"The CheckVideo IP camera gives dealers and end users another way to cost-effectively connect to a monitored service or engage in self-monitoring without additional capital investment in software or servers," said Phil Robertson, vice president, Security & Alarm Division. "Installation is a snap. With 802.11 wireless or Ethernet connectivity and optional Power over Ethernet, it’s a perfect solution for indoor or outdoor spot coverage in places where running cables is impractical."
Small and unobtrusive in indoor environments, the CheckVideo IP Camera is also designed for outdoor use. The CheckVideo IP camera doesn’t require additional hardware or software on site or specialized IT skills for installation. Configuration and management are completed remotely over the Web, keeping additional service calls to a minimum. For more information, visit www.checkvideo.com.
