Keeping your home and business secure is a cinch with Xvision’s remote-access IP CCTV camera.
Protection and security in a tech-enabled world are becoming increasingly difficult. Most of us have social-networking accounts where we post personal details for public consumption. We also use geo-tagging on smartphones to reveal our exact location, and this information can be uploaded to online feeds for mass consumption. But it’s not just our online digital trace we should be protecting. Whether it’s data, loved ones or property, in the office, on the road or at home, we all have something we want to guard.
Britain is already one of the most watched nations on Earth, with CCTV security cameras almost everywhere you look. Sadly, most security solutions are marred by low-quality, pixellated images that are hard to define. Despite this lack of image quality, home and business users have come to rely on the technology for their security cameras. However, the biggest problem small businesses face is that their security cameras are becoming redundant: in a connected world, there are better solutions.
Now IP CCTV security camera manufacturer Xvision has cherrypicked the best existing technology, and updated it with HD quality playback and motion detection. Xvison IP CCTV security cameras marry this to the sort of next-generation technology you only get in a connected world. The company’s portfolio provides peace of mind by giving end users a range of solutions to suit their protection needs.
Cameras can be installed at home to watch over loved ones, or outside to monitor business properties. None of what we describe so far is ground-breaking – the neat trick Xvision adds is accessibility. Users can monitor content in any viable situation. The cameras can be used over a Wi-Fi connection or plugged into a network via a LAN cable.
Best of all, each camera has an IP address. This means your protected stuff can be remotely accessed from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. You can even hook up a smartphone and control the webcam over 3G. If you wish, you can record multiple streams.
Here, we provide a simple 12-step guide that will help you install and connect Xvision’s IP CCTV security camera. We’ll demonstrate how easy it is to run several types of installations, so you can be up, running and secure in no time at all.
Step 1: Prepare the camera. Screw the Wi-Fi antenna on to the side of the Xvision camera. Plug one end of the LAN cable into the camera and the other into the LAN port on your PC. A focus ring with LED lights lets you see what’s happening at night, up to 10m away from the camera.
Step 2: Install the setup software. Insert the Xvision installation CD and select IPWizard II Setup Software from the menu. Install the additional software provided on the disc if it’s likely to be of use to you – Xvision’s X64SW-Lite program lets you record and manage content from multiple cameras – then reboot the PC.
