BL-C160E Features

  • The splash-resistant body lets you install the camera outside
  • The built-in LED lights automatically by the sensor detection
  • Power supply via LAN cable (proprietary PoE)
  • MPEG-4 and JPEG images can be simultaneously sent
  • HTTPS data encrypted communication prevents electronic eavesdropping
  • Full screen display can be monitored the objects bigger


BL-C160E Description

Splash-resistant network camera with built-in LED light, MPEG-4/JPEG monitoring and proprietary PoE capability

The splash-resistant body (IPX4 equivalent) expands the scope of applications by letting you install the camera outsides, like on house or store eaves and walls.

Power is supplied through the Ethernet cable, so the network camera can be easily installed and added to the ceiling and the wall, since no additional work is required for a power outlet. The Power transfer unit is included. (not compatible with IEEE802.3af)

In dark surroundings, the built-in LED will light automatically when the sensor detects the movement of people or animals. (Auto illuminating darkness: approx.40 to 100 lx, depending on setting circumstance)

Camera simultaneously sends MPEG-4 images in three resolutions (VGA, QVGA, and SCIF), and JPEG images in the same three resolutions in favour motion, standard, and favour clarity image-quality types. MPEG-4 is recommended for viewing smooth motion images, and JPEG is recommended for recording higher quality images.

This system supports HTTPS data encrypted communications. By encrypting the network camera’s image and other data for network transmission, electronic eavesdropping is prevent which greatly improves security.


Keep an Eye on the House from Anywhere even over the Cell phone!

Do you sometimes worry about things at home while you’re at work or on vacation?

Panasonic network cameras let you monitor the entrance or garage of your house over the
Internet from wherever you are.

And you can choose the video format to match the Internet connection and your viewing needs (Motion JPEG or Mpeg-4).

Let Panasonic network cameras keep an eye on things - anytime, anywhere - so you can relax and enjoy yourself.


Outdoor Ready

The splash resistant body* expands the scope of applications by letting you install the camera outside, like on house or garage eaves.
* IPX4 equivalent splash-resistance


HTTPS support

Recorded data is sent in encrypted form, making it very difficult for someone else to "eavesdrop" on the network.


Simultaneous MPEG-4*1 and JPEG

Cameras simultaneously send MPEG-4*1 images in three resolutions (VGA*2, QVGA, and SCIF), and JPEG images in the same three resolutions in favour motion, standard, and favour clarity image-quality types. MPEG-4 is recommended for viewing smooth motion images, and JPEG is recommended for recording higher quality images.
*1 MPEG-4 is not applicable on a cell phone.
*2 When viewing in VGA, only MPEG-4 playback offers a maximum of 30 fps.


Colour Night View Mode*1

When the subject darkens, the camera automatically adjusts the brightness to show you the image. You can see clear, easy-to-view images even in the dark.
*1 The image tends to blur more than that in standard mode when viewing a moving subject in low light. When viewing a dark subject in colour night view mode, spots of white or coloured light may appear in the image. Some subjects may require additional time for focusing with the auto focus function.


Alerting Yourself when Changes Occur
The combination of a built-in human detection sensor*1 that responds to heat and a motion detection function that responds to a preset camera threshold or sensitivity detects even slight motions. Captured images can also be stored temporarily in the camera*2 or sent to you by e-mail*3 or FTP data transfer*4.
*1 BL-C160 only.
*2 A maximum of approximately 250 images (320 x 240 pixels) can be stored in the camera.
*3 POP before SMTP authentication and SMTP authentication (PLAIN LOGIN and CRAM-MD5) are supported.
*4 The sensor’s detection history can also be e-mailed to you once a day at a preset time.


Full Screen Display

The monitoring image is easier to see because it fills the entire screen.


Power supply via LAN cable

The included Power Transfer Unit supplies the camera the power through the LAN cable. It allows you to install the camera anywhere , like on the ceiling where no power outlet is.
