Bosch adds IP dome cameras to 200 Series surveillance systems

FAIRPORT, N.Y. – Bosch Security Systems, Inc. has added two IP dome cameras to its 200 Series of ready-to-use, complete network video surveillance systems. Inside the discreet, compact domes, the NDC-255-P features a 2.8 - 10 mm varifocal lens, and the NDC-225-P includes a 4.0 mm fixed lens. The cameras are ideal for small offices, retail shops, convenience stores, and classrooms, where both professional security features and affordability are essential.

The 200 Series IP cameras, now including four models, are easy to install and operate. Each camera comes with a Secure Digital (SD) flash memory card for storing days of recorded video without a connected PC. No technical expertise is required to set-up the cameras. Customers simply insert the SD card, plug in the camera with a single cable, and viewing and recording starts immediately.

This all-in-one surveillance series can also be easily extended by connecting a video recorder, such as the Bosch Divar 700 Series, or an iSCSI server. Efficient H.264 image compression reduces the requirements for storage by up to 50 percent compared to traditional surveillance technology, an important cost-saving feature.

The progressive scan cameras provide professional surveillance with sharp, clear color images – even when objects are in motion. The cameras’ bundled software enables remote viewing, allowing recorded video from multiple cameras to play back on a single PC monitor. The software also makes it easy to archive video and locate specific events quickly using its smart search facility.

In addition, the IP Camera 200 Series features built-in motion, tamper and audio detection that can trigger an action, such as setting off an alarm or increasing recording quality to capture more details in a scene. The two-way audio capability also allows operators to communicate with visitors, employees or intruders via the camera.

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