Overview of Panasonic BL-C210

The Panasonic BL-C210 is a pan/tilt network camera designed for use in domestic locations or small businesses. Pan/tilt functionality allows remote control of the camera's lens, allowing you to view a greater area with a single camera. The BL-C210 also features a built-in web server, enabling you to view a video feed from it over the internet using any standard web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. Included Panasonic software gives you an out-of-the-box monitoring and recording solution if you require more options for viewing and recording. H.264 video compression will reduce the bandwidth demands placed on your home or small business network while maintaining image quality.

The BL-C210 has a built-in passive infrared sensor, which can detect intruders and trigger alarms even in complete darkness. To complement this, it also has colour night view capability, which automatically adjusts the image in poor lighting conditions. Built-in motion and audio detection notifies you via e-mail of any activity in the camera's field of view and will trigger recording. The camera also features 3x digital zoom, allowing you to monitor specific areas in greater detail.

The BL-C210 has a privacy button that can be pressed to close the camera lens, preventing unwanted exposure. This can be useful in domestic situations when the camera might only be required while the house is empty. Two external inputs allow you to expand the camera's capabilities for a wide variety of applications.

The BL-C210 is a Power over Ethernet camera. Both power and network connectivity can be supplied to the camera using a single cable, simplifying installation and reducing cost of implementation.
