IPCAM-PT – Honeywell AlarmNet Total Connect Wireless Pan/Tilt Security Camera has been discontinued – GEOARM

IPCAM-PT - Honeywell AlarmNet Total Connect Wireless Pan/Tilt Security Camera has been discontinued - GEOARM

IPCAM-PT - HoneywellTotal Connect Wireless Pan/Tilt Camera has been discontinued

Here at GEOARM we have received word that the IPCAM-PT has been Discontinued and will not be available for purchase anymore. There has not been any exact reasoning as to why manufacturing of this product has seized. If you have a Honeywell system and are looking for a similar service provided by this product we recommend purchasing two separate indoor cameras such as the IPCAM-WI2 or the IPCAM-WL. Typically when Honeywell temporarily discontinues a product that means they are working on re-releasing a different product of a similar nature. When we find out more we will be sure to update our blog’s and social media sites.

ADC-V700X Outdoor Day/Night Wired Security Camera by! ADC-V700X Security Camera. ADC-V700X Wired Security Camera for Video Surveillance.

This outdoor day/night wired security camera can be used as a standalone video surveillance system, or it can be integrated with a GE Simon XT or XTi Wireless Security System when you choose GEOARM’s interactive alarm monitoring service. Interactive monitoring with video surveillance allows you to look in live to your property anytime and anywhere as long as you have a web enabled PDA, cell phone, or computer. You also would have the ability to record video whenever an alarm occurs or the outdoor security camera detects motion. Unlike an expensive traditional digital video recorder (DVR) surveillance system which stores its data on site, the ADC-V700X transmits its data to an offsite remote location ensuring the security of your recordings.

The ADC-V700X captures color video at up to 640 x 480 resolution while providing for (0) lux low-light sensitivity and adjustable video motion detection. The wired outdoor security camera is also weatherproof and can operate between -4° and 122° F and up to 90% relative humidity. Unlike the indoor wireless IP security cameras, this wired outdoor security camera does need a hardwired broadband internet connection. (An ethernet cable is not included with this camera.) Plug this outdoor security camera into a standard A/C wall outlet and, with an active hardwired internet connection, you are ready to view live video from anywhere. You also can add a 9′ power extension cable if there isn’t an outlet near where you want to mount the outdoor security camera. ADC-V7000X Product Specifications;
