Brickcom Makes Plug and Play a Reality with its EasyLink Feature
Brickcom Corporation, a Taiwan-based company specializing in Wireless and IP Surveillance solutions, is proud to announce its EasyLink Feature which makes plug and play a reality. EasyLink is a feature of the CB-100A megapixel Cube Camera which allows for users to simply plug in the camera to any home or SMB network and play the video. The video feed can be viewed from anywhere via a URL provided by Brickcom.
The CB-100A is designed for use in residence and small businesses. It is embedded with a high performance image sensor which can provide high resolution video at 640 x 400 or 1280 x 800. The CB-100A supports MPEG-4/MJPEG/H.264 codec compression which can stream compressed videos without ruining image quality.
The wireless model offers 802.11b/g/n wireless with WPS and Ethernet connectivity to make it easy to connect to any existing wireless network.
The EasyLink feature eliminates the need for any network configuration, so it is the perfect device for anyone without a technical background. For additional memory storage, the CB-100A also offers a SD slot which users can access via a web interface.
The EasyLink function is easy to use. To view the video feed, the user simply has to log onto mybrickcom.com, choose a domain name to be assigned to the camera, and then start viewing. The video feed will then be viewable from an internet browser by going to (the_assigned_domain_name).mybrickcom.com. For added security, the web address is protected by a username and password chosen by the user.
To access most IP cameras, the user needs to know its IP address to access it remotely. The IP address can change if the camera is restarted or loses connection with the internet. The Easylink uses NAT Traversal to circumvent a router's firewall and automatically obtain the camera's IP address. It eliminates the need for a user to remember a camera's IP address because the Cube camera is now accessible at an easy to remember URL which the user has chosen. EasyLink creates a camera which is now easily accessible, both locally and remotely.
With these user-friendly features, the CB-100A becomes a standalone camera with no need for an onsite-PC. EasyLink enables this network camera to come with everything the user needs to quickly add a surveillance camera to any home or small office network.
