American Dynamics Adds Compact IP Mini-Bullet to Illustra Camera Line
American Dynamics, part of the Security Products business unit of Tyco, introduces the Illustra 610 Compact IP Mini-Bullet Camera, an ideal video solution for small to mid-size businesses in need of reliable, affordable outdoor surveillance.
The Illustra 610 Compact IP Mini-Bullet camera provides exceptional video quality within a small framework, making it appropriate for indoor or outdoor active surveillance situations where the camera needs to blend into the environment. With 1080p resolution for crisp, clear high-definition video, the camera provides various viewing angles, including a horizontal view and a corridor mode to capture video in narrow hallways or other areas where the traditional landscape format won’t do.
Using a built-in IR LED, the camera delivers useable video surveillance in a variety of lighting conditions. Its wide dynamic range further minimizes the impact on surveillance video caused by glare and high-contrast scenes.
“The combination of illuminator and true day/night functionality enables the Illustra 610 Compact IP Mini-Bullet camera to stay focused in changing light situations, delivering quality video surveillance even in total darkness," said Steve Carney, Director of Video Product Line Management for Tyco Security Products. “It’s a great addition to our rapidly growing Illustra HD IP Camera line that provides industry-leading versatility and ease of use in an economical package.”
Multiple streams of H.264 and MJPEG compression ensure excellent image clarity with controlled bandwidth usage. A built-in micro SD/SDHC card slot enables several days of recording to be stored on a memory card. Also, when triggered, the embedded motion detection sensor in the camera can send an alert to the operator or an email to any address or handheld device.
The ONVIF-compliant camera configures quickly using the free Illustra Connect software that ships with all Illustra cameras. The software is designed to simplify network discovery and configuration, thus saving hours of installation time. The camera is also factory focused, eliminating the need for additional time at installation.
