H.264 Compression & AAC Audio

The latest H.264 compression technology allows the Bullet HD to efficiently utilize your network, even with the highest-quality video. Compatibility with AAC audio also allows for direct connection from iPhones and iPads with full video and audio.

True Day/Night Picture

Using an Infrared Cut Filter, the Bullet HD produces true day and night quality images around the clock.

Professional Connectors

The Y-cam Bullet HD comes with Power over Ethernet allowing you to transmit data and power over a single cable, a Digital I/O for systems integration, and 2-way audio capability (provided by a built-in microphone and audio out connector) allowing you to remotely talk to anyone at your cameras site.


The Bullet HD is an IP66-rated outdoor camera - it is waterproof and has shielded cables to ensure smooth operation in all weathers.

Record direct to microSD

Using the on-camera microSD card slot, the Y-cam Bullet HD doesn’t need to be connected to a network or the internet to store streaming video or motion alerts. Use the camera anywhere, even remote locations, & store video straight to microSD card, which is then viewable in your mobile phone, via connection to a TV or PC, or view footage directly from the camera over Wi-Fi.

Standard Y-cam Features

Motion Detection & Alarms

If the Y-cam detects movement in its field of vision, it can automatically send an e-mail alert notifying the owner that motion has been detected, with an attached image of the scene, or it can upload footage to an FTP server so data is securely stored offsite. Unlike conventional activity detection, the Y-cam uses vector information to detect motion, therefore achieving better reliability against false alarms.

Secure Wireless Connectivity

Freedom to place the camera where required with built-in Wi-Fi connecting directly to the Internet. Y-cam supports WEP, WPA, and WPA2 for total connection security, as well as utilising secure password authentication so only authorised users get access.

PC & Mac Compatible

Y-cam is compatible with both PC and Apple Macintosh computers, as well as with multiple web browsers. Users can view live video with audio, control the motion detection settings, take snapshots from the live feed, and record footage locally, from any browser on any computer.

NAS & NVR Drive Compatible

The Y-cam range is not only compatible with market leading NVR drives from manufacturers such as QNAP, Synology and AVerMedia, but our unique NAS-ReadyTM feature allows a Y-cam to record directly to virtually any NAS drive. NAS-Ready lets a Y-cam talk to any NAS drive using the CIFS/SMB protocol, allowing for virtually unlimited storage of footage and alerts.

Each Y-cam camera enables you to login from anywhere in the world and view video live as well as recording straight to a microSD memory card.

Outstanding Quality
Fitted with the highest quality lens and image processing technology the Y-cam Bullet HD produces true day to night quality images at 1280x720 pixels.

Compared to the Foscam camera I bought earlier this camera initially seemed much better. Picture quality is very good. It came with a complete manual that explained most of what I needed to know. The Foscam manual was more like a single page of cryptic notes in mangled English that one had to decipher. The YCam has a lot of nice features: you can set zones for motion trigger, you can record on motion or at given intervals, you have an e-mail sent to you on motion trigger, there is a phone app that allows you to monitor the camera, you can supposedly use other software with it, you can hard wire other devices to it to respond on motion trigger (such as a light or bell), and more.

Unfortunately I can now only get only the a small subset of these features to work. Initially most things worked at a test location inside the house. After I mounted it outside in a rain-sheltered area most things stopped working. Even after I tried rebooting several times. Here are the list of features that stopped working:

Wireless: initially the wireless worked fine. Then when I moved it outside at first the option for setting up the wireless completely disappeared from the setup menu! Then for some other reason I disconnected the ethernet cable and when I plugged it back in the menu item re-appeared. However that was of little help because it could no longer establish a wireless connection. Even though the camera can find the network. Note that my lap top in the exact same location has full bars for wireless. And the distance from the router is only about 50 feet.

Setting zones for motion detection (i.e. trigger rectangle and sensitivity): the new settings I enter only seem to be retained sporadically.

Motion detection: used to be reliable, if over sensitive.

Hardware works well and seems to be a good value. The default settings and installation need to be improved. I'm still not receiving emails on alarm. Cannot download video clips on the net, snapshots fine. Tech support and customer service is unsurpassed, but email support still appears to be in Beta.

After weeks of tinkering and adjusting and dealing with tech support (lots of overseas Skype calls) I finally git it to work.

HD picture quality is much better than the regular camera. Software is still buggy. Sound is not very good and recorded clips play at a fast rate of speed.

With some better software this could be a very good camera.

Camera was ok, it was two bulky for me. I much prefer the Y-cam Bullet HD 1080 Network Camera (YCBLHD6) over this. It's smaller, has better image quality and seems better built.
