The outdoor P-CAM is a battery operated, wireless outdoor motion activated camera designed for use in Videofied security systems. Motion-activated cameras are intended for applications where video verification of intrusion alarms is necessary or desired. The DC V250/DC V650/DC V750 consists of a digital camera, a passive infrared motion detector, and S2 VIE W spread spectrum, Videofied interactive, encrypted wireless circuitry for secure two way communications with the control panel. The camera consists of a CMOS black-white sensor and an 85 degree, wide angle lens. Two infrared LED provide a night illumination distance of approximately 12 meters/40 feet. And a Fresnel lens inside the cover captures a 12m/40 ft wide, 90 degree angle passive infrared pattern. The base allows for gimble arm mounting and waterproof casing. A tamper function provides cover tamper detection. The camera is installed to cover outdoor applications in a temperature fluctuation and areas where broad viewing/ detection coverage is needed. When the alarm and motion detector senses motion or movement, the detector transmits a signal and activates the camera and captures a 10 second digital video segment. The alarm and video segment are reported via the control panel to the central monitoring station, and can also be sent to an Email address for viewing.
