The Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam IP Camera is the newest innovation in secure home monitoring. It combines all of the greatest features from previous generations of IP cameras and adds the latest technology. The Vstarcam delivers them all into a compact wireless IP camera that has a user-friendly installation and remote access to view and record everything that happens in your home or office - all from your smartphone, tablet or PC. To top it off - this product is available for under $100!
For outoor monitoring, consider using the Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam Wireless Outdoor HD IP Security Camera with Night Vision
. Both cameras can be used and accessed together from the Eye4
suite of products as a whole home solution for monitoring your property both indoors and outdoors.Please Note
: as with most IP / Network cameras, Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam IP cameras are designed to work with a specific suite of software and applications - and will work perfectly with the Eye4 suite of products as described below. Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam IP cameras will not work with, nor are they intended to work with INSTEON for Hub, MobiLinc, or any other 3rd party software or application.
Remote Access from Anywhere
Using the Eye4 Cloud IP Camera downloads
you can remotely monitor your property from:a local PC or laptop computer on your network using the Eye4 For Windows desktop program
any PC or laptop computer with Windows Explorer (Active X Download required) connected to the Internet using the Eye4 For Web web browser
a smartphone or tablet using the Eye4 for iPhone or Eye4 For Android app
720p High-Definition ResolutionMost IP cameras under $100 only offer a maximum resolution of 640x480 pixels - standard definition. The Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam comes in at a whopping 1280x720 pixels (720p) High-Definition (HD) for crystal clear video. Example of recorded video.
Remote Pan / Tilt ControlWith the Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam, you can remotely move the camera horizontally left and right (pan) and vertically up and down (tilt). It features a 350° pan and 120° tilt range of motion, and even offers up to 5 different presets so you can automatically go to specific areas that you have designated for viewing. From the iOS and Android apps you use fingure gestures to control the camera - simply swipe your figure to move the camera or pinch to zoom. The desktop software also allows similar control from the click of a mouse. It should be noted the Eye for Web browser application does not allow for control of the camera at this time.
Take Pictures and Capture Video in the DarkIf you're trying to keep an eye on things while you're away, you'll want to know what's going on day and night. The Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam features 12 infrared (IR) LEDs with IR Cut technology that will capture images in darkess down to 0.8 lux (equivalent to the amount of light from a full moon on a clear night) in full color - in other words, you'll have night vision! Images captured in lower than 0.8 lux will be in black and white.
No Professional Installation RequiredOne of the more daunting tasks of installing an IP camera is the installation - that's a thing of the past. No more port forwarding or digging around and adjusting your router settings. It's Plug-n-Play - simply connect the camera to your wireless router, power it up and install the app on your smartphone or tablet. Then just follow a few steps (no programming at all) and in minutes you'll be able to disconnect the camera from the router and take full advantage of the wireless connection.
Automated Alert Notifcation, Recording and ScreenshotWhile other IP cameras limit you to remote viewing, the Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam does much more. The IP camera has a built-in, motion sensor with adjustable sensitivity. There is also an external alarm relay input/output, so you can add a sensor (motion or other) to the alarm input, and when activated, it will trigger the alarm output - possibley to set off a siren or send a signal to your security or home automation system. Manage these settings from your smartphone or tablet via the Eye4 app or from your PC or laptop using the Eye4 For Windows desktop program. Deliver an email notification, capture a screenshot, or record video of activity when motion is detected or the alarm input is activated. Additional sensor, siren, security and home automation systems all available separately.
View 4 Cameras at One TimeOne of the coolest features of the Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam is the multi-camera view. From your smartphone or tablet, you can remotely view 4 cameras simultaneously. This eliminates the need to log in to different cameras from different apps or going back and forth between pages within an app to find a camera. You can see all the activity from a single screen. For advanced systems and users, the desktop software supports remote viewing of up to 81 cameras! When using a wireless system with multiple cameras, greater wireless bandwidth is required - remote access and streaming of four cameras simultaneaously will require a wireless router with a minuimum bandwidth of 450mbps.
Talk and ListenA built-in microphone and a built-in speaker allow you to remotely enjoy 2-way communication with someone at your home or office. While these are good for occasional use, the IP camera even has a 3.5mm microphone input and a 3.5mm audio output. So you can connect a professional microphone and hook the audio output up to an audio system for enhanced communication.
Additional Storage of Screenshots and VideoIf storing images and videos on your smartphone, tablet or computer isn't enough, the Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam also provides you with the option of local storage. A built-in Micro SD card slot allows you to add up to 32GB of data directly on the camera. With the addition of a Micro SD card (sold separately), you have added piece of mind that your images and video can be backed up, just like a DVR..
* Important Note: Smarthome recommends that you research your local and state laws related to audio and video surveillance before implementing this product. Also, if your network uses a wireless router provided by your cable or satellite provider this IP Camera (and most other IP camera's that allow remote access to your network) may not be compatible. This is because wireless routers provided by your cable or satellite company often restrict port forwarding and other wireless router configurations. Please contact your cable or satellite provider for information regarding this.

Wireless Networks and IP Cameras
The strength of any wireless connection between an IP camera and a wireless device such as a smartphone or tablet, especially when transmitting HD 720p resolution, is directly related to the quality of several things:
Your wireless networking devices (modem, router, access point, etc.)
The bandwidth you have selected from your Internet Service provider where the camera will be located
The cellular signal strength in your location or the bandwidth available from the Wi-Fi connection you are remotely connected to
To enjoy an HD 720p video stream, your wireless device must also be capable of displaying video in HD 720p resolution
