The Honeywell IPCAM-PT2 is a second generation AlarmNet pan/tilt security camera. The Honeywell AlarmNet are great for integrating video into a Total Connect 2.0 account. The Total Connect video service offers remote live streaming, snapshots and video clips. You can you also view local live streams to a compatible Honeywell alarm system such as the LYNX Touch L5200 and L7000 panels at revision 7.00657 +, the VISTA Automation Module (VAM), or the Tuxedo Touch (TUXWiFi) at revision 188.8.131.52 +.
If you enroll in Total Connect video service video recordings can be triggered motion and are stored on the cloud at the AlarmNet server. These clips can be downloaded using the app. This is a paid service so be sure to inquire with your Honeywell dealer for rates. Local streaming to your alarm system is free.
The newest member of the IPCAM line up offers higher resolution HD video up to 1280x720. Also the PT2 supports flash upgrades so as new software is developed you can update the product for free from TC. It will pan 320 degrees (160 degrees left and right) and tilt 120 degrees (90 degrees up and 30 degrees down). This can all be controlled remotely from Total Connect.
Like all other IPCAMs, there is an ethernet port and WIFI support via WPS. In order to enroll IPCAMs into a WIFI network your router must have a WPS button. If it does not have this button you can setup the WAP-PLUS as wireless access point for your video system. The WAP must be plugged directly into your router using an ethernet cable. Once the cameras are enrolled with your network you can provide the MAC address listed on the device to your AlarmNet dealer. They will add them to your account for remote viewing via TC.
Minimum Illumination is 0.5 lux. Unlike the IPCAM-WL night-vision camera, the PT2 does not have IR illuminators. However the cam does have white LEDs that can be turned on manually from TC or by an event trigger which can be configured by the end user on TC. The viewing distance with these white LEDs turned on is about 15 feet in a dark room. There is no audio on this device.
