The Panasonic Indoor Network Camera has a 1/3" CMOS sensor and provides MPEG-4, MJPEG, and H.264 videos at 30 fps with a resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels. With 2x EX Zoom and 3x Digital Zoom, you can closely monitor your home, office, workshop, and reception area over a network or even via a cell phone.

Panasonic BBHCM715A Description:

The PoE (Power over Ethernet) feature enables the camera to receive power from the network, without the need for extra wiring or a power outlet, saving on installation costs. While the pixel binning makes the camera more sensitive to light by combining pixel data, the color night view mode amplifies the recording to provide bright images under low light conditions. You can save the footage directly to an SD card without needing any recording software. UPnP compatibility makes it easy for the camera to be set up and used immediately over the Internet.

Panasonic BBHCM715A Features:

Image Sensor
1/3" CMOS image sensor simultaneously transmits real-time high frame-rate (up to 30fps) images with a maximum resolution of 1280 x 960 in MPEG-4, MJPEG and H.264 formats. H.264 format reduces data volume by more than 30% as compared to MPEG-4 when transmitting data of the same image quality.

1280 x 960, 320 x 240, 192 x 144 resolutions at 30 fps in H.264 or MPEG-4 formats; 640 x 480 resolution at 30 fps in MJPEG format. The improved resolution helps the camera render all the finer details.

2x EX Zoom and 3x digital zoom offer a close-up view of objects without loss of image quality, especially during VGA (Video Graphic Array) display with 1280 x 960 resolution.

2x2 Pixel Binning
Four adjacent pixels are treated as one virtual pixel and the pixel data is combined to increase the camera's sensitivity to light and deliver clear images in low light conditions. However, pixel binning cannot be used with 1280 x 960 resolution.

Lens and Light Intensity
Focal range from 0.5m to at f/2.4. The camera captures clear images (640 x 480) in color mode from 0.3 to 10,000 Lux and in B&W mode from 0.4 to 10,000 Lux; at 1280 x 960, the light requirement is 0.6 to 100, 000 Lux in color mode and 0.07 to 100, 000 Lux in B&W mode.

Audio Communication
2-way audio communication with a built-in microphone in the camera and external microphone at the input terminal allows you to communicate with visitors or would-be intruders in the vicinity of the camera.

Night View Mode
Amplifies the images in low lighting conditions to deliver a clear and bright imagery.

Pan/Tilt Capabilities
Remotely controllable 104 (-52 to 52 ) pan and 53 (-45 to 8 ) tilt.

Monitor via Cellphones with a Compatible Browser

Power over Ethernet
Power over Ethernet allows the camera to receive power from the network, without any extra wiring or power outlets and makes for cost-saving installations.

Multi-camera Support
Simultaneously monitor up to 16 Panasonic cameras.

What exactly is an Extended Service Plan?
An extended service plan is generally an extension of your original manufacturer's warranty. Most manufacturers warranty their products to be free from defects for up to one year from the date of purchase. This warranty virtually guarantees you that if your newly purchased product fails, the manufacturer will protect you from the high costs of replacement parts and labor necessary to repair your product. Extended service plans lengthen your product's coverage for up to an additional 60 months (5 years) to insure you get years of performance satisfaction from your newly purchased product.

How is this different than the manufacturer's warranty?
A manufacturer's warranty usually offers limited coverage for a limited time, with parts and labor carrying separate lengths of coverage. For example, a common manufacturer warranty of a product might cover a consumer for one full year on parts defects but only 90 days on the high cost of labor involved to change those parts. Extended service plans provide comprehensive, long term, even length coverage. This means that should your product fail within your plans coverage time frame, both parts and labor costs are covered.

How do I buy an Extended Service Plan?
Extended Service Plans can be purchased along with your product online, or via our toll free number.

Can I renew my Consumer Priority Service extended service plan?
Yes, service plans are renewable and must be submitted 30 days prior to the original plans expiration. Please contact a sales representative to discuss your renewal options.

What should I do if I need extended service?
Our extended service providers offer an easy to use interactive form online which you may use to request that they initiate a claim on your product. Your other alternative is to call the toll-free number on your extended warranty card or email and have a qualified representative make this request for you with the information you will provide. We believe that our claim initiation request process is the absolute best our industry has to offer. It is designed for simplicity and speed.

Who will perform the service on my product?
Our company works with over 11,000 authorized service professionals. Each technician is extensively trained by the respective manufacturers to provide service on your products. Authorized technicians must complete annual and bi-annual continued education exams in addition to being well versed in manufacturer supplied update bulletins to ensure their level of expertise is as current as the new products which come to market. We urge our customers to provide feedback regarding their experiences which we later use to insure that the level of service we are expected to provide is exactly the level of service you receive.

May I transfer my extended service plan to another person?
Our service plans are 100% transferable. If you would like transfer ownership of the covered product along with its coverage, we require that the request be supplied in writing. For assistance please contact a Representative. Please have all of the new owner's information at hand when requesting a transfer.

Will I have to pay a deductible or any other "hidden costs"?
Generally, the amount of a deductible is almost always proportional to the amount of the premium charged. In order to have a lower deductible, even as low as $0, the plan holder would generally have to agree to a higher premium. For those who want lower premiums, they must agree to a higher deductible. Our extended service plans carry a $0.00 deductible along with low premiums. This means that with an extended service plan there are no high upfront costs and they are committed to cover 100% parts and labor costs on any authorized claim.
