D-Link Releases Mobile Security Camera Feed App

mydlink+ camera feedIt appears as if D-Link is taking a cue from the iViglio Smartcam Pro application, which allows you to use your iPhone or iPad camera signal as a security system, as the company is about to release a similar security camera app specifically for tablets. The main difference here, though, is that this app uses D-Link cameras that are connected to your network.

D-Link's new app, known as mydlink+, will be operational on both Apple's iOS devices and Android OS devices and will allow D-Link's customers to remotely monitor their camera feeds from anywhere in the world via an internet connection. The app will also allow you to use your tablet to monitor as many as four mydlink network cameras simultaneously. Some of the supported cameras from D-Link that work with the app include the Day/Night Network Camera with mydlink (DCS-932L) and the Wireless N Network camera.

If you are constantly on the go and you want a convenient way to monitor all of your camera feeds, this app could be just what you are looking for, provided you use D-Link cameras, that is. If you do have D-Link cameras and security is a high priority, you shouldn't even be considering not getting this app. The app itself will be available for $0.99 until January 1, at which point the price will increase to $4.99, so get it quickly!

American Dynamics Unveils Illustra 600 Series

American Dynamics has just unveiled its newest product, the Illustra 600 Series. This camera series is a good choice for security directors who need high HD video quality in all types of lighting conditions. These mini dome cameras are also the choice of security integrators thanks to the free auto-configuration software and the hands-free remote auto-focus and zoom capabilities.

Other places these cameras are being integrated include banking and retail with security professionals in these fields interested in the Illustra 600 IP cameras for their unique facial detection capabilities. In places like banks and retail, where theft is one of the main hazards, facial recognition is key to discovering who robbed you and how to find them.

According to Senior Product Manager for IP Cameras at American Dynamics Steve Carney, "Capturing quality facial images is important, particularly in businesses that are monitoring places like cash registers, entrances and teller lines. Unlike other cameras on the market, the Illustra 600 has the ability to detect a face and increase the bit rate around it, without cropping out important background images. This unique handling of 'regions of interest' allows the camera to save on bandwidth and storage costs."

In addition to that, the auto-focus feature allows you to control the image and automatically focus on the area required without ever having to go to the physical camera to do so. This saves you a lot of time and money on every installation and can be easily completed with a simple mouse click. Also, the outdoor cameras in the series have a Theia wide angle lens option that provides ultra-clear views and avoids "barrel-distortion", especially at long ranges.

The Illustra 600 Series cameras are compatible with American Dynamics' VideoEdge NVR v4.01, HDVR and are also compliant with ONVIF standards, providing you with a greater flexibility in your choice of recording platforms. These cameras are available now in black and white, indoor mini-dome and IP 67 rated outdoor vandal resistant mini-dome form factors and are all available via American Dynamics' worldwide distribution channels.

Point Grey Adds to Flea3 USB 3.0 Camera Series

Point Grey FL3-U3-13S2Point Grey has just announced the launch of its latest Flea3 USB 3.0 camera models. This announcement comes a mere weeks after the very successful launch of the company's first USB 3.0 cameras back in the earlier part of October. The new FL3-U3-13S2 models are based on monochrome and color versions of the Sony IMX035. The IMX035 is a high-quality CMOS sensor that is capable of generating 1.3 megapixel images at 120 FPS. In addition to that, the IMX035 uses Sony's Exmor technology, which combines the speed of CMOS with advanced-quality image sensor technologies accumulated via the development of CCDs.

The ultra-compact Flea3 only measures 29 x 29 x 30mm and provides a unique set of features that are specifically dedicated to maximizing the reliability of USB 3.0, including a 32 MByte frame buffer for image re-transmission. In addition to that, you get on-camera power, temperature, status monitoring and in-field updatable firmware. Unlike other manufacturers, Point Grey has developed its very own USB 3.0 link layer IP, which has been implemented in an FPGA.

The new Flea3 USB 3.0 camera models are also ideal for applications in machine vision and factory automation. Scientific applications like astronomy, microscopy and biophotonics, as well as prosumer applications like video conferencing and kiosk imaging, are also available with these cameras.

According to Product Marketing Manager for Point Grey Michael Gibbons, "Point Grey is delivering on its promise to develop a full line of USB 3.0 products designed to address the demands of our customers for speed, reliability and ease-of-use. With complete control over the camera's core technology, we have the flexibility to choose what features we develop and the timing of our releases without relying on third-party chip vendors. We are also manufacturing our own USB 3.0 PCI Express interface cards and providing our own low-level xHCI driver, providing users with a reliable end-to-end imaging pipeline."

The FL3-U3-13S2 is priced at $695 and is available now from Point Grey, its network of distributors or at for anybody looking to purchase one here in the states. Additional Flea3 USB 3.0 models are planned to be released throughout 2012.

Digital Direct Security Debuts New IR Laser Speed Dome Camera

Digital Direct SecurityDigital Direct Security, one of the leading providers for domestic, office-based, warehouse and multi-site operations, has just unveiled its newest product, the Night Vision Speed Dome. Known as "The Beast", the 36x optical zoom IR laser is the latest technology in terms of night vision, with an infrared range of 200 meters and 3D-DNR (Dynamic Noise Reduction). In addition to that, its Wide Dynamic Range operation enables it to cope remarkably with a range of light conditions, like bright lights and dark shadows.

In addition to that, this camera can be used in a plethora of climates with an internal heater that keeps the device working in temperatures as low as -22 degrees Fahrenheit. The robust outer casing also means that the camera is durable and long lasting, decreasing the amount of times you will need to replace it.

According to a Digital Direct Security spokesman, "We are delighted to be stocking such a fantastic camera in the Night Vision Speed Dome. This great piece of kit is the latest in CCTV technology and is perfect for anyone wanting crystal clear images in all light conditions. At Digital Direct Security, we pride ourselves on offering our customers the very best CCTV solutions, and we are continuing that with this camera. We are the only company stocking the camera at the present time, ensuring we are at the very cutting edge of the market."

So it looks like if you want "The Beast," you are going to have to go through Digital Direct Security directly, at least for the time being. I'm sure it won't be long before the camera makes its way to other retailers, giving it a broader customer pool.
