The NetBotz 500 base station is the next-generation NetBotz monitoring appliance. The NetBotz 500's pod-based architecture gives the user tremendous flexibility and expandability. Camera pods and sensor pods can be located as far as 340 feet (104 m) from the base station, allowing coverage of multiple rooms or cabinets. And, the base station itself can be wirelessly connected to an 802.11a/b/g wireless LAN. SSL encryption is standard on the NetBotz 500, providing secure transmission of alerts to prevent potential interception and misuse of camera and audio clips.
The base station for the NetBotz 500 houses the processor, memory, I/O, and network connections, and also acts as the centralized host for all connected pods and add-on software applications. The Linux-based BotzWare provides advanced “threshold types” such as rate-of-increase, rate-of-decrease, above-maximum-too-long, and below-minimum-too-long for numeric sensors, and error-value-too-long for door and dry contact sensors. Each sensor can have more than one threshold, and each threshold can be assigned different severities, allowing for custom crafted responses to different levels of problems.
The base station cannot be used as standalone; pods or other additional hardware are required.
