Security camera now within reach of many

Compro IP70

WHILE IT  can give one peace of mind to have several CCTV (closed circuit television) cameras installed within the house or workplace, setting up a security network does not come cheap. Security often commands a price tag not within the reach of many.

Technology, however, now allows for competitively-priced alternatives to expensive CCTVs, such as the Compro IP70.

Easy to use and install, the Compro IP70 camera features high quality megapixel image, night vision and mobile surveillance—making it ideal for securing homes and business establishments.


The Compro IP70 has a “Plug-n-Play functionality,” unlike other IP cameras that require specific technical expertise just to set them up.

Users only have to plug the cables and install the software (CD and start-up guide are included in the kit) in the computer and the Compro IP70 can already be used.

The Compro IP70 enables users to identify people and objects clearly, at least three times better than the conventional CCTV camera with a 10x digital zoom. It also allows one to have two video streams of different bandwidths—one for your phone and the other for your PC.

Unlike other cameras that produce grainy or even hazy pictures at night, the IP70’s infrared LEDs ensure clear images. A light sensor will turn on the infrared LEDs when it detects changes in lighting conditions.


The bigger plus is that among low-priced IP cameras, Compro IP70 proves to be the best buy with its iDDNS, which is a free Dynamic Domain Name Service. This allows one to create a hostname that points to his or her home or office IP address, and provides easy-to-remember URL (uniform resource locator) for quick access to one’s IP70 videos.

This means one can have real-time access to his Compro IP70 any time and wherever he is, via the Web browser, instant messenger (Seedonk), iPhone, iPad, Android phone and even Facebook.


The Seedonk instant messenger operates like that of Skype and Windows Messenger, that allows camera-viewing. As for the iPhone, iPad and Android phones, a cell phone surveillance app is available for free.

Compro IP cameras also allows one to save snapshots and store videos in a memory card, as the IP70 has a built-in MicroSD/SDHC card slot.

The key to using the Compro IP70 more effectively is to position it strategically since it cannot be tilted nor can it be rotated.
