High-Quality Live Video, Motion Detection, and Triggered Recordings
The Pro Wireless Video Camera with Night Vision offers high-quality, live video at up to 30 frames per second over a browser, or at a seamless rate of up to 15 frames per second on your cellular phone (cell phone quality will depend on the quality of your cell phone Internet connection). No matter where you are, you can simply log into your account with your cell phone or available Internet connection and view any number of rooms in your house in real time.
From your HomeRemote Pro account site, you can adjust the resolution, image quality, frame rate, and image setting, letting you optimize its performance based on the quality of your Internet connection. With the included video recording software, the camera can also be set up to record video or images based on set schedules or motion triggers. (The software supports up to 16 cameras simultaneously.)
From your account site you can also schedule recordings, enable motion detection alerts, and set up a wide array of recording options. For instance, you can set your system to record when motion is detected in your front door and front windows, and the recorded video can be sent to FTP servers, email addresses, or network storage devices.
Infrared LED Night Vision Technology
With the Pro Wireless Video Camera with Night Vision, you don't have to worry about losing performance during evening hours. The camera features infrared LED night vision technology, which lets you view live video even in the darkest environments. And for even greater security, the camera's external LEDs can be turned off for stealth installations.
Cell Phone Video Interface
From your cellular phone the camera displays video at a seamless rate of up to 15 frames per second depending on your cellular Internet connection. You can preview the video in a small window or enlarge it for a more detailed view.
True Plug-and-Play Ease
Setting up the Pro Wireless Video Camera with Night Vision couldn't be easier. Simply connect the camera to your router during the setup process. Using a computer with Internet access, open a Web browser and log on to the HomeRemote Pro Web site. Find the "Camera Set Up" link and follow the simple instructions. Once you set up the computer and test the connection, you have the option to set the camera up via the Web site interface wirelessly. Then with the included mounting hardware, you can place the camera to monitor any room in the house.

working, at school, or even traveling abroad. You can also use it to monitor your children or pets, or keep tabs on an elderly family member. And business owners can use the system to keep an eye on their premises or employees.
By connecting the Pro Internet Gateway to your Internet router, you'll effectively create a wireless network that "connects" your home to the Internet. And by adding HomeRemote Pro accessories to your home, such as the Pro Door Sensor and Pro Lamp Module, or other HomeRemote Pro-enabled products, such as Electrical Appliance modules and Pro Motion Detectors (sold separately), you'll have the option of remotely controlling your heating and cooling system, lighting, blinds, garage door, and virtually any electrical appliance in your home.
Award-Winning Z-Wave Wireless Technology
At the heart of the HomeRemote Pro System is Z-Wave wireless "mesh" technology, an award-winning wireless standard for home automation. Unlike traditional remote technologies that rely on

infrared signals, Z-Wave is not affected by walls or other barriers, and it offers two-way communication, giving you confirmation that your commands were received and executed. With Z-Wave, the guesswork and finger-crossing is taken out of the equation.
Because each "module" or HomeRemote Pro accessory acts as a repeater that extends the distance of the Z-Wave signals, with a few easily installed and strategically placed HomeRemote Pro accessories, your entire home can be covered in a matter of minutes without any hard-wiring or special installation.
Easy Set Up: No Special Tools or Wiring Required
Setting up a HomeRemote Pro Monitoring System up couldn't be easier. Once you connect the Pro Internet Gateway to your router, you log into the HomeRemote Pro Web site, where you can customize your HomeRemote Pro System by naming the rooms in your home. (You can also personalize your HomeRemote Pro Web page with photos of yourself and other custom touches.) Then it's just a matter of plugging accessories into outlets throughout your home and adding them to your system.
The "installation" of HomeRemote Pro accessories is as easy as plugging in one of the several HomeRemote Pro modules into available electrical outlets. Once the modules, which are about the size of typical home appliance timers, are connected, you simply plug your lamp or appliance into it. The modules let you control appliances remotely (you can schedule them, or turn them on or off on demand), and they will also act as "repeaters" that effectively extend your home's Z-Wave wireless network.
