ZyXEL Launches Suite of Security Cameras for SOHO and SMB Surveillance Solution Providers

Wide Range of Form-Factors and Features Make Cameras Ideal for an Array of Installation Needs

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 30, 2012) - ZyXEL Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet connectivity, home entertainment and routing products, today announced the debut of multiple security cameras targeting DIY, security-conscious consumers and security companies. The suite of cameras, available through several of ZyXEL's trusted channel partners, boasts a variety of features and installation options, including Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), vandal-proof housing, motorized zoom and focus and pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ).

Capitalizing on the success of its recently launched cloud-enabled home security cameras, ZyXEL now offers two new cameras geared specifically toward the home office and small business environment. The all-new IPC1905 is a PoE bullet camera with both day and night vision, and environment hardened housing that is perfect fixed surveillance indoors and out. ZyXEL is also launching a PoE version of its best- selling IPC4605N cloud camera, making it more suitable to business installations requiring PTZ monitoring. The IPC4605P includes a dome enclosure to provide protection from dust and vandalism.

ZyXEL also introduced a comprehensive line of professional grade cameras in a variety of form factors and configuration options to allow the greatest deployment flexibility for solution providers focused on surveillance. All ZyXEL professional cameras support ONVIF, which is the global industry standard for the interface of IP-based physical security products. This allows the new cameras to be added to existing surveillance installations without needing to change the management and monitoring platform, and gives installers flexibility in choice of software for new installations.

"ZyXEL has broadened its security camera product portfolio with the introduction of these professional-grade security cameras for professional installers and SOHO users," said Steven Joe, executive vice president of channel business for Americas at ZyXEL. "These cameras, along with our carrier-grade PoE Ethernet switches, wireless APs and firewall / VPN gateways, offer our solution partners all the components for a complete and consistently reliable surveillance solution."

ZyXEL professional cameras come in four different form factors including bullet cams (PIC1100 series), mini-dome cameras (PIC2100 series), normal dome cameras (the PIC3100 series) and the Pan-Tilt-Zoom dome cameras (the PIC4100 series). The 1100, 2100, and 3100 series are built on a common platform that offers a range of sophisticated benefits that include:

  • Intelligent configuration technology for easy set-up
  • 3D noise reduction technology that helps eliminate noise in low-light environments
  • Smart Picture Detection functionality that analyzes and modifies video output in real-time, ensuring unparalleled clarity, consistency, and fidelity
  • Infra Red and smart motion detection
  • PoE functionality for convenient deployment options
  • 2M CMOS or 5M CMOS image sensors
  • Indoor or outdoor IP-66 rated enclosures

The PIC4100 series cameras provide full PTZ functionality in both an indoor and outdoor rated enclosure. Featuring 20x zoom, 1080p video, and auto-tracking, the PIC4100 series is ideal for covering large areas or tracking individuals in a public area.

All models are available now. Please contact to discuss configurations and pricing.
