Special Features of this Model

Push & Point™ Installation
The Y-cam EyeBall has the world’s first Push & Point™ lens system, meaning that the camera lens can be quickly aimed and focused on what’s important to you. Unlike other dome cameras, you won’t need to deal with fiddly screws, wires or release clips, with the Y-cam EyeBall, you just push, point and watch.

Professional Connectors
The Y-cam EyeBall comes complete with Power over Ethernet allowing you to transmit data and power over a single cable, a Digital I/O for systems integration, and 2-way audio capability (provided by a built-in microphone and audio out connector)allowing you to remotely talk to anyone at your cameras site.

Record direct to microSD
Using the on-camera microSD card slot, the Y-cam EyeBall no longer needs to be connected to a network or the internet to store streaming video or motion alerts. Use the camera anywhere, even remote locations, & store video straight to microSD card, which is then viewable in your mobile phone, via connection to a TV or PC, or view footage directly from the camera over Wi-Fi.

Standard Y-cam Features

Motion Detection
If the Y-cam detects movement in its field of vision, it can automatically send an e-mail alert notifying the owner that motion has been detected, with an attached image of the scene. Unlike conventional activity detection, the Y-cam uses vector information to detect motion, therefore achieving better reliability against false alarms.

Email and FTP Alerts
The Y-cam comes with useful alarm tools that will keep you notified if any motion is detected. It has built-in functions that can automatically send an email to you, or upload the video or images straight to a FTP server, meaning that your data will be safely stored offsite.

Secure Wireless Connectivity
Freedom to place the camera where required with built-in Wi-Fi connecting directly to the Internet. Y-cam supports WEP, WPA, and WPA2 for total connection security, as well as utilising secure password authentication so only authorised users get access.

Full Colour Low-Light View
The camera’s brightness settings are automatically adjusted when the room light is dimmed, so you are still able to view video in low light conditions. Furthermore the Y-cam EyeBall will superimpose up to 4 images (frame integration) in 1 frame to increase the brightness of the picture.

View on your Mobile Phone
Y-cam offer free smartphone apps to easily view and store multiple cameras from your mobile phone, with free apps available for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, Symbian and more. Support for both MJPEG and 3GPP streams means the camera feed can be directly viewed on virtually any mobile device.

Fully PC and Mac Compatible
Y-cam is fully compatible with both PC and Apple Macintosh computers, as well as with multiple web browsers. Users can view live video with audio, control the motion detection settings, take snapshots from the live feed, and record footage locally, from any browser on any computer.

NAS and NVR Drive Compatible
The Y-cam range is not only compatible with market leading NVR drives from manufacturers such as QNAP, Synology and AVerMedia, but our unique NAS-Ready™ feature allows a Y-cam to record directly to virtually any NAS drive. NAS-Ready™ lets a Y-cam talk to any NAS drive using the CIFS/SMB protocol, allowing for vitually unlimited storage of footage and alerts.
