User-friendly and affordable solutions are ideal for home and small business use – FosBaby range designed specifically for child monitoring

Basingstoke, 25 July 2016 – Tech Data has been appointed as a distributor for Foscam, the UK-based developer and supplier of surveillance solutions for use in the home and small businesses.

Foscam offers a wide range of options, from effective and affordable cameras for home use, to professional-standard devices and network video recorders that provide comprehensive coverage for buildings and external areas.  They are designed to be easy to set-up, manage and use.

Simon Hughes, Category Manager for Accessories at Tech Data, said that surveillance and security is a growing market and a good opportunity for retailers and resellers. “Foscam’s solutions are designed for ease of use. That’s important because it makes them simple to understand, sell and support. They will have strong appeal to both consumers and SMBs.”

For retailers the colourful FosBaby range of cameras will appeal to parents who want to monitor their children visually as well as audibly. Images can be viewed on a smartphone using the Foscam Viewer app. An invisible infra-red LED means the camera can also be used in the dark, without disturbing the sleeping child. Additionally, the second generation Fosbaby P1 provides pan and tilt capability of 300° horizontal and 100° vertical.

The Foscam C2 and Foscam R2 are suitable for both home and business use. The C2 is a full HD mini IP camera that features an 8X zoom lens, motion detection and real-time alerts. The Foscam R2 offers added pan and tilt, two-way audio and night surveillance capabilities.

Foscam’s EZLink software is provided with all Foscam cameras and can be used on smartphones, tablets or PCs to monitor and control cameras and access footage. All cameras come with a two- year warranty.

Founded in 2007 with the aim of delivering high-quality, competitively-priced network video surveillance devices that make security more accessible and affordable, Foscam has established itself as a leading player in the home security market.
