Proper security is something that only seemed achievable through technology when security cams first came out they made short work of bringing thugs to justice. Security cams have come a long way not only do they still support the old options that were fundamental to a proper security system they also include some incredible features like the ability to check in on your cams from anywhere in the world at the click of a mouse. This is a huge step forward in high end security and the people at Level One have one such cam the FCS-5030 IP Cam with Infrared LEDs which is a must have for all of your security needs let’s check it out and see all the extras:

Conclusion:

If you are in the market for a day/night IP Cam don’t thumb your nose at the purchase of the Level One FCS-5030, it has more features and options that you can shake a stick at an d the addition of the weatherproof design and the ability to view it from anywhere with 2 way audio there are countless uses for a cam like this.

Would I recommend this cam? Yes, I would. I do point to point wireless internet as one of my contracts and quite often you find yourself out of cell service on a mountain reconfiguring a point to multipoint shot. With the 2-way audio that this cam offers you can easily communicate with your “guy on the ground” in order to trouble shoot any issues you are having with configuration.

Another great thing is with the two-way audio you can inform the assailant that has broken in to your place of business that you are a deranged ex military type and that you are hiding somewhere in the building and that you are coming for him. I am sure this alone is worth the cost of this unit.

Pros:

  • Night vision
  • Check cam from anywhere
  • Weather proof
  •  2-way audio
  • 4X digital zoom
  • Normal file codec (MJPEG and MP4)
  • Able to check it with your 3g cell phone or pda at anytime
  • 32 channel monitoring software included
Cons:
  • Doesn't auto pan
