How i-Cam Works

m2d_ani.gif (37353 bytes)



Main Features

Built-in 33.6 kpbs modem for transmitting images through normal phone lines

Built-in 1/4" color CCD camera for image capture & transmission (VGA 640x480)

Built-in 2MB flash memory for capturing and saving images up to 120 high resolution JPEG images when triggered by an external sensor/alarm

The Alarm Input Jack (see above diagram) allows for easily attaching an external alarm sensor device (such as a motion sensor) to the i-Cam

When the alarm is triggered, i-Cam starts taking pictures and adding date and time stamps.
It can either store these digital color images in its internal memory for later retrieval or automatically dial out to an offsite PC and transmit images to it.  In the latter case, even if the i-Cam is completely destroyed by a criminal, the digital images would be safe in the off-site computer. 

Uses normal telephone lines for transmission.  Receiving PC can be located anywhere in world.

Built-in keypad on i-Cam allows for onsite program changes - or can be altered anytime by the offsite receiving PC.

Can easily be installed in multiple PC's (WIN95/98, NT) and password protected (if desired)

Low cost unit with no annual service costs.  No need of dedicated phone line.


N.B. Please check before you purchase to ensure that the compatibility of your computer modem is functional with the one built-into the i-Cam. If necessary a test can be run. Also, this i-Cam package has been put together for the North American market (USA, Canada and Mexico). This camera system will also work fine in many other countries but you should certainly check with us first for our confirmation that it will work in your location. Otherwise, you buy at your own risk. It is possible that you will need to use an adapter with the supplied telephone cable so you can plug-in to your telephone jack.
