Because it’s becoming increasingly necessary to keep a watchful eye over all of your belongings, even if you’re a thousand miles away from your home or office, Zyxel Communications will roll out the V750W to let you do remote surveillance over the Internet.
The Zyxel V750W is an IP camera that uses Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) technology to let you take control from anywhere in the world as long as you have access to the Internet. Simply put, this is a surveillance camera which you will be able to control via the ‘net.
The process is fairly simple. You connect the Zyxel V750W to a network using Wi-Fi and then dial a pre-configured phone number to gain control over it. After you successfully establish a connection, you may then use the numeric keys on your handset to pan in/out, zoom in/out, and tilt the camera to your heart’s desire.
Another nifty trick that the Zyxel V750W can also do is call a pre-defined phone number (such as your personal, home, or office number) in case an intrusion is detected via the camera’s viewfinder. It’s not clear how “intrusions” are classified exactly, though.
Zyxel’s V750W is a very useful tool for home/office security, as I’m sure you’ll agree, but the makers have not offered to include pricing details in their official announcement. It’ll be made available through telcos, MSOs, and VoIP service providers, though, so your best bet for a quote would probably be from one of those in your area.
