The Foxtrot system standard accessories also include IP cameras, whose video signal can be displayed on the Foxtrot website, in applications for smart devices, etc., and they can also be saved to SD cards, a snapshot can be sent by mail, etc.
A wide range of IP cameras can be connected to the Foxtrot system. The Teco company now offers its own brand of IP cameras for excellent price/performance ratio, with a high quality image processing and several variants of mechanical design. The cameras are mostly available in two versions with different image sensor resolution.The cameras are mostly available in two versions with different image sensor resolution.
For basic technical information and parameters, see the following articles.
The cameras should be connected to the internal network in the building, like the Foxtrot control system itself; for basic information on the Ethernet, see Chapter 2.4 ETHERNET PLC Foxtrot (interfaces, cables).
If cameras are placed outside the building or in a place with a higher risk of surge, the Ethernet interface should be protected by SPD elements, like e.g. the weather stations with the Ethernet interface, WiFi AP, etc. For examples of SPD use, see Chapter 13.5.12 Ethernet Protection (weather stations, WiFi on the roof).
