SpecoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s InPro is for network-shy dealers
NEW YORK--At ISC East here, Speco Technologies was showing off its new Ã¢â‚¬Å“auto networkingÃ¢â‚¬Â intelligent protocol Ã¢â‚¬Å“InProÃ¢â‚¬Â IP camera series, which is specifically designed for residential and small-business applications and for installers who are not networking experts.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“A lot of people in the industry run away from network DVRs or network cameras,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Gary Perlin, vice president of CCTV products for Speco. These installers will like InPro, he said, because itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s basically a plug-and-play network camera. Ã¢â‚¬Å“It automatically finds an open port, jumps the firewall, identifies itself on the local network ... within 30 seconds.Ã¢â‚¬Â
In addition, users can connect to the cameras from anywhere Ã¢â‚¬Å“using a unique camera ID and password.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Asked if the lagging economy will hurt sales of residential cameras, Lauren Vagnone, Speco marketing manager said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“When you talk about the economy, now is the time that homeowners want to protect what they have ... ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a product for this time.Ã¢â‚¬Â
