Hawking Technologies, Inc. has released the HNC290G Net-Vision wireless-G Network Camera. The new HNC290G expands on Hawking’s existing line of network cameras, which allow users to monitor homes, offices, and other locations from anywhere in the world using only a web browser.
The HNC290G features an automatic router configuration and web address (URL) setup for easy remote viewing over the web. It includes an advanced setup wizard that walks users through the process of setting up the camera for internet viewing by using an easy-to-remember web address such as “http://myhome.hawkingcam.com”.
Using UPnP technology, users will be able to configure their cameras for internet viewing without making any configurations changes directly on their routers.
The HNC290G supports both the Wireless 802.11b/g and 10/100Mbps Wired Fast Ethernet standards, and can stream high-quality live video at up to 30 frames per second. The camera also features built-in motion detection, allowing users to set up automatic recording and snapshot emailing when motion is detected.
Included with the camera is a management and control software application from which users can playback video, record directly to the hard drive, and trigger automatic recording via motion detection.
The HNC290G features a built-in web server and utilizes its own IP address, thereby eliminating the need to be attached to a PC. The camera connects directly to an existing network, allowing users to view live video both from within their local area network (LAN) or from outside the network via the Internet.
The HNC290G will be available from August through retailers, direct marketers, e-commerce sites and distribution channels at a suggested price of US$129.99.
