02/01/2009: Encore Electronics Introduces New Affordable Wireless Internet Security Cameras for Soho’s

The ENVCWI-PTG1 Streams High-Quality Audio and Video of Your Home, Office, Warehouse or Store via Internet to Your Computer


LA PUENTE, CA (FEBRUARY, 2009)– Encore Electronics®, the affordable networking and multimedia solution provider for consumer and small business environments, announces the latest addition to their Internet Security Camera family of products, the Encore Wireless-G Internet Security Pan/Tilt Camera with 2-Way Audio (ENVCWI-PTG1). The latest device from Encore Electronics is one of the many new products unveiled at the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show and serves as the perfect security camera for parents, store owners, warehouse supervisors and office managers.

Unlike traditional “USB web cams” that need a direct connection to a computer, the Encore Wireless Internet Security Camera (ENVCWI-PTG1) connects to either a wireless-G (802.11g) network or over 10/100 Ethernet cable, giving users more flexibility to place the camera anywhere they want. The ENVCWI-PTG1 can be easily accessed from computers in the same house or from anywhere in the world, via internet, and by multiple users at the same time.

One of the unique features to the Encore Wireless Internet Security Camera is the pan and tilt capability which allows for greater surveillance coverage of any area. Users also can control the pan/tilt feature remotely over the internet. The 2-way audio feature allows users to hear what is actually happening and to make better judgment. The ENVCWI-PTG1 offers high-quality video with resolution up to 640x480, frame rate up to 30 frames per second and advanced Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) compression.

The Encore Wireless Internet Security Camera also has the ability to automatically send an email notification when the motion detection feature is triggered. The email contains various still images captured by the camera, providing evidence if necessary. Moreover, its General Purpose Input/Output (GPIO) ports allow users to link ENVCWI-PTG1 to their current home security system, such as external motion detection sensors and alarms.

“Encore strives to bring cost effective products to the market,” states Kai Huang, marketing manager for Encore Electronics. “When bundled with our other Wireless Internet Security Camera products, users can set-up a surveillance system that would traditionally cost thousands of dollars for a fraction of the cost,” commented Huang. “Our product is more powerful than traditional, closed-circuit camera systems because users can access the video from anywhere in the world at any time.”
