There are several really great video surveillance cameras out on the market, and today we will be taking a look at Alarm.com’s PoE (short for Power over Ethernet) security cameras.
There are many times in our lives that we wished that we had kept a closer eye on our personal belongings. It seems that every year there are more and more cases of property theft taking pace across the United States. This can cause great emotional and financial stress to those who suffer this type of loss. One way to protect yourself against these types of losses is to invest in one or more PoE security cameras.
Before we start to take a look at some of Alarm.com’s PoE cameras we would first like to give our readers some background information about the company. Alarm.com was founded in 2002 as a way for end-users to use security systems remotely. They have since then expanded their market out to make security products of their own like their cameras.
Today many major security companies use Alarm.com services to power their remote control services for their security equipment. Link Interactive uses Alarm.com technology as well - when you sign up with any one of our monitoring plans, you will get access to Link Interactive’s Alarm.com powered mobile app, from where you would be able to control and monitor your security system and cameras.

The first Alarm.com camera we will be taking a look at is the ADC-VC836 Camera. The ADC-VC836 Camera can be used for indoors or outdoors. It is a wireless camera that works by connecting to your home’s internet. You can power and connect your camera using its PoE feature. PoE means power over Ethernet. This allows you to not only power your camera but also connect to your home’s internet at the same time which gives you a more reliable connection, and one less wire to run through or along your wall.
You also have the option to power this camera via an AC power source, and you can connect it wirelessly to your home’s Wi-Fi network. It has a sphere like design, and is made from IP67 weather-proof material that allows you to use it rain or shine.
The video resolution is a crisp 1080P with a 108-degree viewing angle. It has infrared night vision that allows you to capture images up to 30 meters at night. The ADC-VC836 Camera is fairly easy to install. You will need a switch, which is not provided with the camera. It includes everything you will need to get your camera up and running except for the switch. That you will need to purchase separately if you do not already have one. A switch looks like this and can be bought of Amazon (simply search for “PoE switch”):
Find out how you can get an ADC-VC836 from Link Interactive. Link Interactive is a cutting-edge home security company that specializes in Alarm.com cameras and compatible security equipment. We’ll help you with the perfect home security package.
We have always loved Alarm.com products. They have been making security cameras for a while, and they are highly rated by end-users, including ours at Link Interactive. The ADC-VC836 Camera is a great camera, and we really like the fact that you can use it for outdoors or indoors. We also really like the fact that are several ways to power and connect your camera to your internet.
Another really great Alam.com camera that can be used for both indoors and outdoors is the ADC-VC826 Camera. The ADC-VC826 Camera is very similar to the ADC-VC836 Camera - it can be powered and connected via an Ethernet connection (PoE). You have the option to also power this camera via an AC power source, and connect it wirelessly to your home’s internet.
The ADC-VC826 Camera has really cool modern design that looks like a sphere-shaped spaceship. It is made from high-quality IP67 material that can withstand the toughest of elements.
It has a video resolution of 1080P with a 108-degree viewing angel, and has a pan/tilt feature that allows you to pan your camera from 0 to 365 degrees, and you can tilt it from 0 to 75 degrees. It includes infrared night vision that allows you to capture images up to 98 feet at night.
Just like the ADC-V836 camera the ADC-VC826 Camera can be a DIY type of install, and it comes with everything you need for an easy installation except for the switch (which we covered in the previous section).
So all in all, the ADC-VC826 Camera is another really great camera made by Alarm.com. We really like its modern design, and we know it would fit well with any style of home. We also really love the pan/tilt feature of the ADC-VC826 Camera.
One thing that makes using Alarm.com cameras so great is the fact you get to use them with the Alarm.com app. You can download the Alarm.com app for Apple, Android, and PC devices. With the Alarm.com app you can stream and view live and recorded video right from your smart phone. You can also customize the features of your Alarm.com cameras right from the app. When your camera starts to record you will be sent a push notification from the app on your phone. If you have other compatible security equipment that works with Alarm.com you can control those along with your cameras right from the app.
The Alarm.com app is not free to use, and you will need to pay a monthly subscription service to be able to view recorded video clips. Get in touch with Link Interactive to sign up for an Alarm.com home security monitoring plan and to get prices on all cameras and home security equipment.
