Multi-camera recording has just become a whole lot more flexible and imaginative. Y-Cam Solutions Ltd, the UK based manufacturer of innovative IP network cameras, has joined forces with QNAP, a global provider of network video recording (NVR) surveillance solutions, to provide an affordable multi-camera recording and storage solution.

The partnership provides distributors, resellers and retailers with a complete and secure multi-camera surveillance system with greatly improved ease of use and versatility. “The full integration of Y-Cam with the VioStor NVR series gives the market a first-to-market solution that is both affordable and reliable,” says Y-Cam’s Managing Director, Devin Chawda.

“Very simply, and perhaps most importantly, it makes it possible for users to record live video remotely without the need to have a computer switched on at all times. The strength of our offering is its flexibility, which allows the user to choose different bundles – or combination packages – of products that best meet their requirements in the Small Office Home Office (SOHO) and Small Medium Business (SMB) markets.”

A perfect example of this new business partnership is the Y-Cam QNAP NVR-104 bundle, which offers high performance and stability at a very attractive price. Retailing at less than £1000, the total package contains four day/night cameras, NVR and external enclosure units.

Such feature-rich and easy-to-use solutions are steadily replacing the traditional and more costly analogue CCTV systems in the security and IT markets. Y-Cam products teamed with an affordable NVR device offer numerous advantages for customers, resellers and distributors alike.

Since the cameras record directly onto the NVR, there is no need for a computer to record the video. Thanks to the NVR’s built-in multi-camera software, the cameras can be managed and the recorded video can be played back easily. All cameras can be viewed locally and remotely on one screen via the NVR hardware device, and most NVRs offer instant back-up of the stored video on dual hard disk for redundant protection against disk failure.

Y-cam believes that this total solution concept can only be beneficial to all parties. “It presents some great selling angles that offer real differential for resellers and distributors, as well as healthy margins on the cameras and hardware.” said Devin Chawda

Background Information

Y-Cam Solutions designs, manufactures and markets a range of wireless internet video cameras. Each represents the best value for money in its class, is fast and easy to use and designed to work in everyday environments. Most recently Y-Cam has introduced Baby-Cam a version of its Y-Cam Knight camera that wirelessly links to a laptop or mobile as an effective and secure aide to baby monitoring for those who work from home.

QNAP Security has successfully developed a Linux-embedded NVR surveillance system that is both resistant to hacking and virus attacks and at the same time is the world’s first ‘green’ NVR. Some models use less that 18W – far less than a general PC based surveillance system (approx 350W). Audio and video monitoring, recording and playback can be carried out remotely on Internet Explorer without any complicated wiring or software.
