BL-C1A camera can be viewed and controlled from a standard Web browser, video display, or even a compatible cell phone or PDA. Place them in your home, office, vacation home or almost anywhere else that you'd like to keep an eye on things, with no PC required on location!. They are easy to install and operate and require no additional software for the PC that you're viewing them on. Each camera also comes with a free Web address, which can track the camera automatically. All you need is a regular Web browser to view them on your PC, as all of the other required software, including control software (TCP/UDP) and e-mail software (SMTP), is already inside the camera.

Comments about Panasonic Panasonic BL-C1A Network Camera:
I know this is sold as a pet cam but I used it to observe the demolition and construction of a new garage at my house. I gave out the free internet address to my friends and family so everyone could watch (if they wanted to).
It was fun. People enjoyed watching the demolition and especially the new construction.
For an inexpensive camera it is realy nice. I watched from work and took screen shots that I converted to JPGs. Then I made a slide show of the garage from beginning to end....and as the camera never moved it was pretty cool...almost like time lapse photography.
Now that the garage is done, the camera watches my heated birdbath and bird feeder for fun in the backyard. Camera is inside the house and looks through the window. Amazing clarity!
Highly recommend. Fun toy.
