Honeywell's EQUIP Series is an array of IP-based products that have an open architecture platform and utilize a single Application Program Interface (API). The API allows for a common user experience and integration with hybrid Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) and Network Video Recorders (NVRs).
The Honeywell HCD554IP True Day/Night Network Camera offers the latest in digital video surveillance. The 1/3" CCD network camera combines world-class imaging and camera technology with the EQUIP Series IP networking technology providing streaming MPEG-4 images in 4CIF, 2CIF, or CIF resolutions with rates up to 30 frames per second (25 fps for PAL systems).
The HCD554IP true day/night camera adapts to varying lighting conditions to ensure the highest picture quality even in extreme low light conditions. When the light level drops too low for accurate video identification in color, the camera moves the IR cut filter out of the optical path and then switches to black and white video to capture more detail using the increased sensitivity of the CCD to IR light. For additional control, the on-board alarm input can be configured to switch the camera from day to night mode to allow synchronization with external lighting.
The HCS554IP has built-in Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af), which allows power to be supplied to the camera using the network, eliminating the need for a separate power supply and reducing the cost of installation. For additional installation flexibility the unit can also be powered with 12 VDC or 24 VAC.

The HCD554IP is a network surveillance solution designed for object recognition that is required in locations where variable and low light conditions exist. Setup is quick and easy and can be customized through a Web client or from an NVR. This provides optimum performance for both indoor and outdoor applications.
