Ease of Use

Camera was easy to configure and set up. Works wired and wireless just as expected. Will most likely purchase another one for additional monitoring. Software allows 4 cams to be used and viewed at the same time. Would recommend product.

Product Overview

View Live Video from Anywhere in the World!

The HNC290G is the first network camera to feature automatic router configuration and web address (URL) setup for easy remote viewing over the web. It includes an advanced setup wizard that enables hassle-free installation. Using the latest technology, users will be able to configure their cameras for Internet viewing without having to make complicated configurations directly on their routers.

The HNC290G supports both the Wireless 802.11b/g and 10/100Mbps Wired Fast Ethernet standards, and can stream high-quality live video at up to 30 frames per second. The camera also features built-in motion detection, which adds an extra measure of security by allowing users to set up automatic recording and snapshot emailing when motion is detected. Included with the camera is a powerful management and control software application from which users can playback video, record directly to the hard drive, and trigger automatic recording via motion detection.

The HNC290G features a built-in web server and utilizes its own IP address, thereby eliminating the need to be attached to a PC. The camera connects directly to an existing network, allowing users to view live video both from within their local area network (LAN) or from outside the network via the Internet. Sleek and economical, the HNC290G offers a broad array of applications and can be used to monitor various critical locations such as homes, offices, schools, parking lots, and other industrial and public areas.
