Earlier this year, Linksys announced a new range of security cameras, complete with compatible recording unit, which it’s aiming at the small business sector.

“The introduction of our new IP surveillance camera offerings combined with Linksys Business switches and VPN routers build upon our commitment to deliver high quality and reliable connectivity and security solutions that provide scalable connectivity to meet the growing demands of small businesses,” said Mohammad Hoda, vice president of Linksys international. “The cameras and network video recorder give small businesses and resellers with tools they need to provide superior security, surveillance and supervision.”

The 4 different models of camera aim to meet various needs, but all have wide dynamic range, motion detection, and alarm/event notification (and all but the Mini Dome have night vision).
