Cisco Small Business WVC210
Wireless-G PTZ Internet Color Video Camera with 2-Way Audio

Average Rating:

Secure & Protect

Cisco Small Business Video Surveillance products provide customizable ways for small business owners to monitor and protect their companies. These high-quality solutions can be optimized for many different applications and sites.

Live Video

The Cisco WVC210 Wireless-G PTZ Internet Video Camera sends live video through the Internet to a web browser anywhere in the world. The camera supports dual codecs (MPEG-4 and MJPEG), which can be used simultaneously. MPEG-4 gives efficient bandwidth consumption with good-quality compression and is optimal for real-time viewing of video. MJPEG gives optimal video quality, making it ideal for large-volume storage to a network attached storage (NAS) device.

Two-Way Audio

The Cisco WVC210's audio capabilities include two-way audio, an embedded microphone, external speaker and microphone ports, and voice compression. With extensive support for features such as IP multicast, Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP), Real Time Protocol (RTP), and 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), it enables video to be viewed from multiple endpoints and client applications, such as 3G phones and QuickTime clients on PCs or Wi-Fi phones. Network protocols such as 802.1p priority, 802.1Q VLANs, and Dynamic DNS (DDNS) are also supported.

Remotely Control

The pan/tilt and digital zoom functions allow you to remotely control the camera movement and focus, giving you maximum remote flexibility. Up to 10 simultaneous unicast users can access the camera at any time. Video monitoring software is included for monitoring multiple cameras and recording to your hard drive, with advanced search by time and date. Recording can be set up to start by motion trigger or by manual or scheduled recording. Playback is available on Windows Media Player, with no need for a proprietary player.

Great camera for color and PTZ, November 17th, 2012
Bought this linksys wvc210 camera from linksys store from google ad and very happy with it. Use this camera to monitor front door. Found software online called ispy to use motion detection to only record video to computer when someone comes to the front door. Works great. To watch video from iphone I use software app from itunes store called ucampro by ubntek. This app is the best I have tested with this ip camera. It even allows control of PTZ. Just wish it had audio as well. My only issue with this camera is Wireless-G. Would have preferred to have Wireless-N. My linksys ea6500 router is about 50ft from camera, but works great.
