Fairport, N.Y. – Bosch Security Systems, Inc. announced today an addition to its IP Camera 200 Series – the NBC-225-P. The new IP camera has an integrated 4.9 mm fixed lens and is ready-to-use straight from the box, making it ideal for monitoring retail shops, restaurants, daycare centers and small offices.

The NBC-225-P and the recently announced NBC-255-P, which features a 2.8 – 10 mm varifocal lens, make up Bosch’s IP Camera 200 Series. This family of surveillance products, introduced this year, is designed specifically for small businesses.

The 200 series cameras are easy to install and use. They can operate without a digital video recorder or PC – storing days of video on a Secure Digital (SD) flash memory card. Their efficient H.264 image compression reduces the requirements for storage by up to 30 percent compared to traditional surveillance technology, an important cost-saving feature.

With sharp, clear color images, these all-in-one solutions deliver professional CCTV performance. They come complete with surveillance software to allow video from multiple cameras to be viewed remotely on a single PC monitor. Users can see video from multiple cameras on one screen, search for motion, and archive important clips with the software provided. Only a single cable connection is needed to view video and to power and control the camera.

The 200 series cameras include motion, tamper and audio detection, which can be used to trigger actions, such as setting off an alarm or increasing recording quality to capture extra details. These features allow customers to focus their attention on the most important aspects of running a small business, assured the cameras are keeping watch over their property.
With two-way audio, customers can also communicate with visitors or employees via the camera.

Fully compliant with the latest Open Network Video Interface Forum (ONVIF) standard, the IP Camera 200 Series offer compatibility with other ONVIF surveillance products. This helps users save on future upgrade or migration costs.
