This tool helps installers easily set-up and focus PoE-enabled network cameras. Installers can make instant focus adjustment by viewing the network camera output via a laptop or PDA when they are next to the camera location. It eliminates the need for an additional tech to view the IP camera output remotely, relaying focusing and pointing instructions (typically via a mobile device) to the camera installer set-up. Unlike analogue cameras, which can be set up using the AZTEST, IP cameras require decoding and decompression of the digital video stream for display. The AZIPTOO L allows POE to be passed through to the camera, while allowing a local laptop or PDA to be networked directly to the camera. This saves time and cost as the technician takes total control of the set-up through viewing live images from the camera as it is being installed.
