Overview of Panasonic BL-C121

The Panasonic BL-C121 is a wireless IP camera designed for use in small business or domestic locations. The camera has full wireless connectivity, giving you greater flexibility when deciding where to install the camera, as it does not need a physical connection to your network. The BL-C121 also features a built-in web server, enabling you to view a feed from the camera via an internet connection on any standard web browser, such as Internet Explorer or Safari. To further expand your options for viewing and recording, the included Panasonic software gives you an out-of-the-box monitoring and recording solution.

The BL-C121 features 10x digital zoom, enabling you to isolate areas of the camera's field of view for detailed surveillance. The camera's colour night view functionality automatically optimises the image in poor lighting conditions. Built-in motion detection can trigger recording and inform you of any activity in the camera's field of view. A built-in microphone provides you with an audio feed from the camera's environment, if required.

The BL-C121 can also be configured with your computer to trigger an audible warning from the computer if an external sensor is activated or motion is detected. This is an useful feature if monitoring facilities are left unattended for long periods of time. The camera's capabilities can be further expanded using the external input.
