Netgear Releases Wire-Free, ONVIF-Compliant Surveillance Camera

The battery-powered FlexPower IP camera from Netgear is compatible with other ONVIF-compliant surveillance video management systems and features several power options.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Netgear (NASDAQ: NTGR) announces the release of the FlexPower wire-free IP camera (VNC4030) and the FlexPower base station (VNB4000).

The FlexPower IP camera provides HD-quality video using a 130-degree wide-angle lens and supporting flexible power options such as battery, AC or optional solar, and PIR motion detection, according to the company.

Netgear says this makes the camera well-suited for “pop-up” security monitoring for events, warehouse inventory, or law enforcement operations, while still recording to the existing VMS system. It can also be paired with Netgear 4G LTE modems to send video streams to remote VMS servers.

The FlexPower IP Camera is also compliant with ONVIF standards, ensuring its compatibility with other ONVIF-compliant surveillance video management systems (VMS).

The companion Netgear FlexPower base station acts as a wireless access point for FlexPower cameras with a wireless range up to 300 feet line of sight. Designed for FlexPower camera connectivity only, it does not provide WiFi to other devices but does support up to four FlexPower cameras, according to the company.

Netgear says the base station offers flexible mounting options for the ceiling, wall and table top. Additional base stations can also be added to extend the system to support more cameras and offer broader wireless coverage.

“Our new FlexPower cameras leverage the WiFi engineering expertise that NETGEAR brings as the industry’s top brand in smart home security cameras,” says Greg Falgiano, senior product line manager for Netgear Smart Home Security. “Whether you’re a security installer, residential alarm service provider, small business owner, franchisee or in law enforcement, FlexPower cameras will enable you to safeguard your clients and their property where other cameras can’t. And the fact that they’re ONVIF standards-compliant makes them both a wise investment and an easy addition to your existing video security system.”
