This digital IP surveillance solution that can be used directly with existing analogue technology to create a web-based CCTV surveillance system with up to four separate cameras.

The NS4240 IP camera is managed via a standard Windows-based PC and browser and enables virtually instant retrieval of images and footage. Three video input ports allowing users to connect to closed circuit TV (CCTV) cameras, creating an affordable four-camera monitoring system accessible from one IP address.

According to NetComm managing director David Stewart, the fast migration to broadband, especially ADSL, is building the ideal platform for small business and home users to explore new technologies such as digital IP video.

"Many organisations across the security and manufacturing industries, construction, tourism, education and the medical profession are harnessing higher network speeds to bring IP monitoring technology into their day-to-day operations," he said.

The NS4240 and three CCTV cameras would provide four surveillance cameras in close proximity at an entry-level configuration for under AUD$3000.

Built for remote monitoring, NetComm's IP cameras are fully interoperable with key wireless communications protocols such as 802.11, GPRS and GSM. They also offer bandwidth configuration and 'motion detection' so that only meaningful data is captured.

The NS4240 has an RRP of AUD$2189.
