Y-cam Knight S indoor IP camera with 15m infrared night vision, NAS recording and a built-in microphone

Overview of Y-Cam Knight S

The Y-cam Knight S is an indoor IP camera that is ideally suited for surveillance of homes, shops and small businesses. Wi-fi connectivity allows the camera to connect to a PC without any wiring, helping to save on costs. With integrated infrared lighting to provide illumination up to 30ft from the camera, the Knight S can be used to monitor premises around the clock.

A built-in microphone allows you to listen in to the cameras' surroundings, and footage can be viewed in a live feed using a 3GPP-compatible mobile phone, allowing you to take your surveillance on the move. Compatible with Windows or Mac systems, the Knight S provides a flexible security solution that can be used with a wide range of operating systems and web browsers.

The camera comes with recording software, allowing footage to be recorded to a network video recorder (NVR) instead of a home PC, helping to save on storage.
