Overview of Panasonic BL-C230

The Panasonic BL-C230 is a pan/tilt-capable IP camera designed for use by small businesses and in domestic residences. Its pan/tilt functionality allows it to cover a wider field of view than a conventional fixed camera. Alongside this, H.264 video compression reduces the network bandwidth requirements of the camera by up to 80%, a useful feature for small business and home owners where network resources can be limited.

The BL-C230 also features colour night view, which automatically adjusts the brightness of the image in poor lighting conditions. Built-in motion and audio alarms can trigger recording and notify you via e-mail of activity, and a passive infrared sensor can detect body heat from intruders even in complete darkness, offering a 24-hour detection solution.

An integrated microphone detects audio in the camera's environment and triggers an alarm, if required. External inputs allow you to further customize the camera for a wide variety of applications. As well as this, the BL-C230 has a privacy button, which can be pressed to close the camera lens - useful in domestic situations where surveillance is only required if the premises are empty.
