The PIC1003WP is not weather sealed so if you need it to operate outdoors it will need additional protection against the weather. Two ¼-20 mounting points, this is the same as that found on a camera so you can use a tripod mount, are included and the device can be mounted rightside up or upside down. The video stream can later be flipped via the software setup. If you decide not to use the ¼-20 sockets you can also mount using standard the slot-in screw head. Two screws and wall plugs are included in the package.

 REVIEW: PROLiNK Wireless Pan/Tilt IP Camera


The IP Camera can be wired to the LAN or not wired. A little giveaway that the IP Camera is wireless capable is the stubby little antennae sticking out of the top. The antenna probably helps with the signal strength. As with all wireless connectivity you mileage will vary depending on the location it is to be installed.

A feature security companies like to see on IP or CCTV cameras is a input and output trigger. The PIC1003WP has a Digital Output (D/O) alarm and a Digital Input (D/I) trigger. So, you could setup the camera to start recording based on a closed or open circuit. For example, the opening of a secure door would trigger the recording and sending of a alarm to an email address. It could also send the video file to an FTP site for safe keeping in the event the incident also took out the camera and recording device.
