Garage Fire Captured on Video with Camcloud

Posted by on in Caught on Video

This is a time-lapsed video of a garage fire captured with a Foscam IP camera. The footage was saved in the cloud with Camcloud.



The fire was quickly caught in the garage and within minutes the entire building was in flames. The owner tried dousing the fire with a garden hose, but the heat was too much. The video ends once the property's power went out. According to the owner, the fire fighters arrived just in time, otherwise the main house would have caught fire as well.

D-Link vs. Axis - We’re Comparing this D-Link IP Camera with a 2,500$ Axis Camera

Posted by on in Industry
As we continue our series of IP Camera reviews, we’re taking one of D-Link’s most popular surveillance cameras and comparing it to the 2,500$ Axis P5635-E.

Let's get this out of the way: For 2,500$, it’s clear that this camera wasn't made with the average family nor the small business owner in mind. Still though, we want to know what you get for spending 20x more compared to the recently reviewed D-Link 5020L, which currently sits at an affordable $120 on amazon. What’s the difference between an affordable H.264 $120 surveillance camera and a high-end H.264 that costs 2,500$?

We’ll look at both cameras’ zoom, video quality, features & customization, and hardware.

#4. Zoom

The first significant difference that stands out between the two cameras is the zoom feature. The Axis camera is capable of 30x optical zoom, which makes the D-Link’s 4x digital zoom look pretty cheap. You can read about the difference between optical zoom and digital zoom here, but the gist of it is that optical zoom uses an actual lens adjustment, while digital zoom uses in-camera image processing which just enlarges the image itself.

During my review of the D-Link 5020L camera, at the 2:09 mark I briefly show the camera’s clarity when enhancing a video feed to its maximum zoom of 4x.


 
Its low 640x480 resolution makes the D-link look pixelated when zoomed in fully. 

Here’s the Axis camera fully zoomed out.

Here’s the Axis Camera zoomed in at the halfway point. As you can see, the image still looks clear thanks to the camera’s 1080p HD resolution.
