  • Patent number: 9621778
    Abstract: An integrated Internet camera includes, an infrared sensor, an optical system for forming an image on the infrared sensor and lenses formed from infrared transmitting material, an image capturing circuit, for capturing digital images from the infrared sensor; a network interface device connectible to a computer network for transmission of the digital images, as digital image files, across the computer network. A file transfer device of the camera communicates, via the network interface device, with a destination computer at a selected network address on the computer network, and transfers the digital image files to the destination computer according to a predetermined file transfer protocol. A transport control device of the camera controls addressing of the digital image files to the selected network address. The camera self-initiates a connection with the computer network and a connection with the destination computer at the selected network address.

  • Patent number: 7428004
    Abstract: A standalone device, connectible to a CCTV network, includes an analog video input connector that collects input image signals corresponding to views from outside the standalone device, and digital image signal data corresponding to the collected signals are output. The device is connectible to an the internet-protocol network, and a transport control protocol packetizes the digital image signal data and controls addressing of the packetized digital image signal data. An address setting routine sets an internet-protocol address for the standalone device itself, permitting connection to the internet-protocol network. A self-initiating transmission initiating routine self-initiates a connection with the internet-protocol network in response to a triggering signal on an alarm trigger input. An E-mail message is assembled, including report information related to the triggering signal and digital image signal data, and is transmitted to an address via the internet-protocol network.

    Abstract: A method of transmitting digital image signal data from a standalone device includes input image signals corresponding to views from outside the standalone device. Digital image signal data, corresponding to the input image signals, are output. The standalone device is permitted to connect to an internet-protocol network by setting an internet-protocol address for the standalone device itself. On the network, the digital image signal data is packetized and addressing of the packetized digital image signal data for the internet-protocol network is controlled, with a transport control protocol. The method includes self-initiating a connection with the network in response to a triggering signal on at least one alarm trigger input of a plurality of input/output terminals.
