Security concerns top the agenda of many organisations today leading to an increased presence of surveillance cameras in homes and businesses alike. As surveillance systems become an integral part of the network, the need to quickly integrate them along with existing networks becomes increasingly important. The EDS5255 integrates quickly and easily with existing EnGenius networks.

Supporting 802.11n wireless for high-speed surveillance video delivery, the EDS5255 IP Camera offers flexibility in placement options. Power the camera with the included power supply or over CAT5/6 cabling from its 802.3af-compliant port via an EnGenius PoE-compatible Switch, and extend power over long distances without needing to connect to an electrical outlet. This extends the camera’s flexibility for placement in older buildings, under the eaves of roofs or high atop poles.

Ideal for use in large homes, retail stores, warehouses, loading docs, residential facilities, parking lots or other locations that require 24/7 surveillance, the EDS5255 IP Camera will perform rain or shine, day or night. With powerful, built-in IR LED illuminators and a removable mechanical IR Cut filter, the IP Camera is able to provide clear image quality day or night in low light or total darkness up to 32-feet/10 meters. With an IP66-rated waterproof and dustproof housing, the IP Camera is able to withstand harsh climates as well as indoor industrial environments such as manufacturing plants and warehouses where temperature is a factor.

Managing lighting conditions and adjusting the digital exposure is made easy with Wide Dynamic Range Technology (WDR) which provides clear images even in highly backlit environments or where lighting intensity varies such as when the camera is directed toward windows, entry points or outdoors. Its wide angle 2-Megapixel lens captures high-resolution images over broader areas, reducing deployment costs by replacing multiple cameras and improving investigations by capturing better, more useful evidence.

To document insurance claims or provide law enforcement with video evidence, the IP Surveillance Camera can snap 1920 x 1080 HD JPEG images or record H.264/MPEG-4 and motion JPEG video clips at 30 frames per second and send them via the network to a hard drive or NAS. Utilizing its simultaneous dual stream capabilities can save bandwidth and reduce storage space while allowing for remote monitoring and recording via separate streams. Each codec can be set to different frame-rates and image resolutions to customize specific application requirements. Adhering to the ONVIF standard, allows for easy integration of the IP Camera with other ONVIF-compliant third-party hardware and software available on the market.

To address the threat of suspicious activity in places with multiple entry points, the IP Surveillance Camera supports a motion detected-trigger, which automatically activates a recording of the covered area ensuring all activity is monitored so employees, deliveries, and other assets arrive and depart safely and on time.

Paired with the EnGenius’ EnViewer™ mobile app, available as a free download on the Apple® Store and Google™ Play Store, IT managers, store owners and staff can remotely monitor their properties from anywhere, while on the go.

The included 16-Channel Video Management Software (VMS) provides live view monitoring, record, playback and quick search features. Up to 5 separate clients can simultaneously view live camera feeds from various locations, allowing security personnel or staff the flexibility to monitor cameras from multiple locations. Organizations that want to monitor enclosed areas where many blind spots are present can benefit from utilizing the VMS since it allows minimal personnel to monitor the property while still maintaining the highest level of security.

Constant Vigilance
The IP Camera’s wide-angle 2-MP CMOS lens provides 1920 x 1080 HD performance, clarity and versatility needed to monitor wider areas, requiring fewer camera placements. Removable IRC filter and built-in IR LED illuminators offer clear image quality day or night in low light or total darkness up to 32-ft./10 m.
Place Almost Anywhere
802.11n Wireless transfers video surveillance high speeds and ensures deployment flexibility. IP Camera can be powered and connected directly via an Ethernet cable to a Power-over-Ethernet 802.3af-capable Switch, extending power via CAT5/6 cabling over long distances without needing to connect to an electrical outlet. Managing varying lighting conditions and adjusting the digital exposure is made easy with Wide Dynamic Range Technology, providing clear images even in highly backlit areas indoors and out.
Customize Viewing & Recording Options
Supporting Triple Codecs H.264/MPEG-4 and MJPEG to 30 fps, each can be set to different frame-rates and image resolutions to customize specific application requirements. Utilizing its simultaneous dual stream capabilities saves bandwidth, reduces storage space and allows for remote monitoring and recording via separate streams.
Excellent Performance in Harsh Environments
IP66-rated waterproof and dustproof casing ensures the IP Camera is able to withstand harsh climates as well as indoor industrial environments such as manufacturing plants and warehouses where temperature is a factor. IP Camera features 2-axis pivot mechanism for precise alignment and a cable management bracket for a clean professional look while securing wiring from the elements.
Monitor, Record and Search with 16-Channel Video Management Software (VMS)
Provides maximum video coverage for even the most far-reaching venues. Monitor up to 16 camera streams in real-time with included Video Management Software. View and monitor live feeds, record, and playback and quickly search archived video.
Motion and Alarm Input Detection Triggers Provide Instant Proof
Motion Alarm Input Detection capabilities can be set to trigger recording or alert staff, giving them the irrefutable video evidence needed to initiate a recording of the event or, if necessary, call the authorities.
Alarm Alerts & Push Notifications
Integrate IP Camera with 3rd party digital alarms, sensors or other electronic devices that activate when motion detectors are triggered serving as an added deterrent to prolonged suspicious activity. Receive triggered event alerts directly to your smartphone or tablet for instant notification of events-in-progress with the EnViewer free downloadable App for Android and iOS.
Remotely View, Access Storage & Playback Videos
Remotely view live video feeds of connected cameras via the EnViewer App. Access and archive EnViewer videos via your smartphone when archived to an EnGenius EnShare-enabled USB hard drive that is connected to an EnGenius IoT Gateway or Intelligent Router. Each video is device (USB drive) date and time stamped for easy sorting and retrieval.
Easily Share with Colleagues, Law Enforcement and More
Simply register managers and trusted staff and download the EnViewer App for additional eyes to remotely monitor locations 24/7 or as needed. EnViewer can generate a QR Code that requires no username or password so personnel can quickly access linked cameras for a faster response to issues needing immediate attention.
