The BL-C30 network camera can present real-time images over the Internet. Users can monitor their home or office from a distant location using a PC or mobile telephone. The network camera even features a built-in Web server function, so the camera does not have to be connected to a PC. The BLC30 is easy to setup, has an IP address setting, port forwarding and DDNS that can be setup automatically with a setup CD-ROM. The lens can be panned moving horizontally or tilted vertically from a remote location via a PC or mobile telephone. The built-in sensor detects infra-red rays emitted from a heat source, such as a person, and sends a signal to begin recording. The camera can also send an e-mail to the computer or mobile phone with the captured image attached. The camera can view images in light as low as 1 lux. It has the ability to switch to color night view mode automatically when the subject becomes dark.
