The E1 system consists of one camera and a Wi-Fi base station that is used to connect with the router. You can connect up to 4 cameras to one E1 HUB at the same time. You can also purchase these cameras individually, to completely cover the whole house. Foscam South Africa offers local support together with the international company for peace of mind.

Foscam E1 Camera
However keep in mind that battery cameras like the E1 are good for monitor areas that users seldom visit. For heavy traffic areas we recommend that you rather use a normal DC powered Foscam Wi-Fi camera. This is because high traffic areas will deplete the battery faster. If you require 24 viewing on a screen then battery powered cameras are not the way to.
The Foscam E1 supports full HD 1080p (1920*1080) video for live viewing or playback as well as two-way audio so you can talk with your family anywhere using the free Foscam App from your smartphone. Powered by Sony CMOS sensor and Ambrella chipset, the camera brings 110° diagonal angle of view with more sharper and brighter details.
This camera features night vision up to 25 feet in low light or even total dark. It has a wide-angle Passive Infrared (PIR) sensor and the advanced human detection algorithm for detecting moving heat objects, such as human or animals. This eliminates false positive movement like branches moved by the wind. The E1 will record the movement then and send a snapshot push notification right to your smartphone.
