GuardCam Wi-Fi Security Floodlight
The latest addition to ESP’s GuardCam range of external area protection systems is a new Wi-Fi version – the GuardCam Combined Wi-Fi Security Camera and LED Floodlight – which allows remote viewing, monitoring and notifications via the specially-developed ESP GuardCamDECO App. The new system is a complete all-in-one, PIR floodlight, camera and DVR system, which offers an ideal low-energy external area protection solution for domestic and commercial applications. It incorporates a high-definition 1080p digital camera for superior quality images. The 16 SMD LED security lamp offers 5000k colour light with 1500 lumens – to produce a high quality, cool white light output. Flexibility to adjust the LED lamp and PIR is also featured, while the PIR sensor provides 180° x 10m coverage.
With recent amendments to the 18th Edition regulations, together with the increased safety requirements discussed in the recent government Hackitt Report, there is more call for the use of RCDs to detect and isolate products at the point of use to help prevent electrical fires, as well as helping to protect the main circuit and the consumer unit (point of supply). PowerBreaker socket RCDs are available in both 30 and 10mA trip currents in a selection of Passive and Active designs. The super sensitive 10mA versions are suitable for use in areas where you would find children or vulnerable people – such as hospitals or care homes.
