Home Monitoring & Control System Wired Camera
The Motorola HMWC1020 Home Monitoring and Control System Wired Camera is a simple, reliable, and highly economical camera for use with the Motorola HMEZ1000 Home Monitoring and Control System Easy Start Kit. Easy to install and manage, the Motorola HMWC1020 captures and transmits color still images or video with sound to the Base Station via a built-in IR (InfraRed) motion detector and microphone. This camera is suitable to both indoor and outdoor applications, and allows for real-time viewing in and around the home. Managed via simple-to-use software, the HMWC1020 lets you check on your baby without disturbing nap time, keep an eye on the kids during backyard play, or see who is at the front door while you are at home, at work, or around the world.
The Motorola HMWC1020 utilizes a 0.33-inch color CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) image sensor and a 4.3-millimeter fixed lens to achieve a resolution of 360 horizontal TVL (TV lines). This color camera with integrated IR motion detection has a S/N (signal to noise) ratio of 48 dB or better, and can receive a picture down to a minimum illumination of five Lux. This camera has an 80-degree field of view (for both motion detection and picture reception), and a focal range from two-feet to infinity. This unit features auto brightness, contrast and white-balance picture quality adjustment settings, as well as a high-speed electronic shutter ranging from 1/60 to 1/15,000 of a second. The Motorola HMWC1020 camera runs on power supplied via its included 60-foot extension cable, and has an operating temperature of -10 to 40 degrees Celsius.
- Sensitivity: minimum illumination of 5 Lux
- S/N ratio: minimum of 48 dB
- Resolution: 360 TVL
- Camera operating temperature: -10 to 40 degrees Celsius
- Dimensions: 2.5 x 3.25 x 2.75 inches (W x D x H)
The Motorola HMWC1020 deserves serious consideration as one of the easiest and most economical monitoring solutions available, especially for parents with play areas outside the home that are in need of surveillance. Real-time notification is accomplished via software included with the Motorola HMEZ1000 Easy Start Kit. Broadband Internet service is required for notification via cell phone or email, and this system can support up to three separate wired cameras. Users should note that the CMOS image sensor may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light, so the camera should not be mounted or pointed directly at the sun or other bright-light sources.
About Surveillance Camera Technical Features
Lux rating is the measurement used to indicate how sensitive a camera is to light, and stands for the level of light reflected off a piece of paper by a candle from one meter away. Thus a sensitivity of three Lux would mean a camera could generate an acceptable picture of a piece-of-paper-sized object that was illuminated by the equivalent of three candles from one meter away. The lower the Lux level, the better the camera’s ability to work in low-light conditions. The camera’s resolution should be greater than or equal to the resolution supported by the system’s recorder or monitor. The S/N, or signal to noise ratio, is an important measure of a camera’s quality. A poor camera, low-light conditions or poor wiring causes “noise” which consumes processing power and disk space. A camera with a wide dynamic range is ideal, especially for recording areas in which both indoor and outdoor light are present. CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors provide high-quality images that are less susceptible to noise. CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors offer less image quality, but are usually more cost-effective and energy efficient.
