The SmartTel has been designed to provide fast transmission of high quality colour or monochrome images over communication networks allowing for general local surveillance, or for all remote monitoring applications. The SmartTel sets the standard in easy to use transmission. With EoL monitored alarm inputs and a 16,000 event log for BS8418:2010 compliance. It can transmit either full frame or conditional refresh JPEG & MJPEG images, maximising the bandwidth available. Upon alarm activation SmartTel automatically contacts a remote PC and transmits live video footage to provide visual evidence of an intrusion. Integrated memory provides a buffer of pre-alarm images for alarm verification and remote control is available for the operation of dome and PTZ cameras.
