  • 12 Infrared LEDs ensures 10 meters (32.8 feet) effective night vision range
  • View the real time video anywhere from iPhone and other popular 3G phones


What This Product Does

TL-SC3171 IP surveillance camera is a versatile solution for your home & office monitoring. It watches your home, your kids, your workplace, whatever you care for most. After connecting directly to a local network using the camera's 54Mbps wireless or wired Ethernet connection, it can send live video to your home PC or through the internet to a Web browser or Smartphone, anywhere in the world!

True Day / Night Surveillance

TL-SC3171 uses 12 IR (Infrared) LEDs light as a means to produce clear images in the dark and an industrial mechanical ICR (IR Cut-filter Removable) completely filters that light during the day ensuring vivid video as clear as you would see with the naked eye, both functions unavailable on traditional day/night cameras that resulted in poor image quality during both the day and the night.

16-channel Management Software

The surveillance software coming with the IP camera assists you manage multiple cameras at the same time. With it, video from 16 cameras can be displayed on one screen. You can archive streaming video and audio straight to your hard drive, playback video, and monitor up to 16 cameras on a single screen.

Dual Streaming

Unlike traditional IP Cameras operating at only MPEG-4 or MJPEG compression mode, TL-SC3171 can deliver MPEG-4 and MJPEG streams simultaneously ---- MJPEG produces lossless while bandwidth-consuming video and MPEG-4 produces efficiently compressed "small size" video. Now with TL-SC3171, you can just monitor local rooms with MJPEG stream and remote office with MPEG-4 stream, backing them all up to a server in MPEG-4 format.
