Overview of Panasonic BL-C160

The Panasonic BL-C160 outdoor network camera is an ideal solution for monitoring small businesses and domestic locations. The camera's splash-resistant outdoor design allows for unobtrusive viewing of external locations, and a 10x digital zoom provides further detail if you need to isolate a specific area of the camera's field of view.

In poor lighting conditions, the BL-C160's colour night view mode will automatically adjust the brightness of the image to compensate. When light conditions become too poor for the colour night view mode to compensate, the BL-C160's integrated white LEDs can illuminate the camera's surroundings, providing a round-the-clock surveillance solution.

Alongside this, built-in motion and passive infrared detection (heat detection) can alert you via e-mail and trigger recordings of activity. With its integrated web server, a live feed from the BL-C160 can be viewed on using a standard web browser on any internet-connected computer, such as Internet Explorer or Safari, and there is a built-in mobile viewer too.

The BL-C160 uses Panasonic's own Power over Ethernet capability. When powering the camera with the included power transfer unit a single cable can provide a network connection and power to the camera, simplifying your installation, reducing costs and time taken.
