Express 6 / Specifications


Feature Benefit
Standalone Operation Does not require a dedicated PC in order to operate -- The Express 6 video server is a true standalone device that plugs directly into a network or modem.
Six Video Inputs One Express 6 can stream video and images from up to six video cameras. This is 50% more than most competitors.
Cost Effective The Express 6 "per video port" cost is under $135. Competing video servers come with only four ports and cost $160-$300 per port. The Express 6 has higher image quality than competing video servers at around half the cost.
IP-Addressable Video streams and configuration menus can be viewed from anywhere by simply entering the IP address in a web browser.
Password-Protected Configuration menus and video streams are username/password protected to prevent unauthorized access.
Browser-Based No special software or downloads are needed to access the Express 6. Any java-enabled web browser can be used, including browsers on Windows, MacOS and UNIX/Linux.
Triggered Smart Capture A sequence of images can be uploaded or e-mailed based on a triggered event (alarm system, motion detector, door sensor, etc.), including both pre- and post-alarm images.
Built-In FTP Client The Express 6 can be programmed to upload images to your web server based on the schedule you set. Each video input's upload schedule is independent.
Power Injected Cable Optional power/video cables are available. This is the key to easy installation -- one cable carries both power and video which means a wall outlet is not needed near the cameras and only one cable needs to run to each camera.
Date/Time Auto network time synchronization or manual time set. Time/Date and custom text is printed on live image, flexible font color and positioning.
Complete Solution Express 6 "Security Camera System in a Box" bundles are available, included are the video server, cameras, mounts, cables, power supplies and easy-to-follow instructions.
Warranty Limited 1-Year Warranty, Parts & Labor
