Keep An EyeBall on Indoor Security With The New Wi-Fi Dome Camera
The EyeBall Camera
The EyeBall camera itself requires only a single cable connection which connects to its break-out box control unit which, in turn, leads to two cables: one for power and one for a wired network. The unit is wireless enabled so, after initial configuration, you may only need the power cable (or a PoE connection).
Upon the device itself is:
- the camera with “push and point” – depress the dome in the middle and you can adjust the position of the camera
- built-in electret condenser microphone – supporting AMR and G.726
- status LED
- reset button
- micro SD card slot – supporting cards from 16MB to 8GB including SDHC cards (the device should be off when inserting a memory card)
For now, you just need to attach the camera to the break-out box using the 12 pin circle plug. There are a lot of pins in the plug and it may not be immediately clear how to align the plug and connector – there is an arrow and three line-up guides on the plug but there is no matching arrow on the socket – although if you look closely at the three line-up guides one is set further apart than the other two. The arrow seems to face down towards the base of the break-out box- do this carefully and make sure you get the orientation right.
Along the front of the break-out box are a number of connections. The connections include the power socket, an audio out socket, an I/O terminal for connecting an alarm relay, and the RJ45 network socket. Connect the network cable and the power lead and under typical circumstances the unit should be good to go.
