ESP has added a new rapid deployment surveillance camera to its External Area Protection (EAP) portfolio. CanCam is a battery-operated, high resolution surveillance camera with integral PIR detector, SD card recording and black infra-red illumination. Suited for semi covert, instant deployment security operations and designed for external or internal use, CanCam will detect movement and instantly record images with time and date stamping, in all conditions day and night. Among the user settings the image capture type and resolution is selectable – either video with audio up to HD720P or stills up to 8MP recording directly to the 4GB SD card supplied. When the card is full, there is an overwrite option. Alternatively it is possible to use higher capacity cards up to 32GB. Recordings are taken from the removable SD card using windows media player for simple playback and transfer. Recorded footage can also be viewed directly via a PC or TV. The service life of the CanCam’s battery pack varies according to the resolution and image mode, however an optional plug-in power supply is included for more permanent use. The camera has a 6mm lens to match the detection angle of the PIR, is designed for pole or wall mounting and has an IP55 weatherproof rating.
