Stunning 720p Color HD Video Played Back On PC or Mac
All the video being recorded is in crisp & clear HD quality color. This ensures you’ll be able to make out all the details of activity in the room you’re recording. In addition, the camera lens is a true CCD camera lens that shoots wide Field of View so you’ll be able to see most of your room, edge to edge without missing a thing. All the video is recorded in avi format using h.264 compression with time/date stamped files for easy saving, emailing or playback on your PC or Mac computer.
Record Weeks Of HD Video Onto A Removable SD Card
Using an optional 32GB SD card, you’ll never run out of video memory. The choice is yours. With adjustable frame rate controls, it’s easy to capture weeks to months of hidden videos. Since normal motion that your TV plays back at is at 30 FPS, recording at a lower FPS of 5, 15 or 30 (frames per second) will enable you to store much more footage on the SD card. This, along with motion activated recording will give you weeks to months of video before the SD card gets filled up. Additionally, you’ll be able to “hot-swap” SD cards by easily removing a filled up one, and replacing it with a fresh blank card. This way you’ll quickly be able to bring the footage back to your computer for review without ever missing important video.
Time/Date Stamp For Quick ID Provides Unquestionable Proof
All of the video and recorded video files have time and date stamped directly onto the video. This provides clear-cut proof of exactly when the event occurred.
Easy-To-Use Settings For TV Playback or Computer
Nothing complicated here. The hidden camera is ready-to-go out of the box with motion detection settings. Simply unpack, and plug into an outlet. You’re all set. If you need to change a setting, using a single included video cable, the AV-In & AV-out directly from the camera simply connects to any TV or monitor, and use the included remote. You can do the same for watching the recorded video. This is also a great way to place the hidden camera and ensure the shot is setup to capture everything you need. The video will automatically overwrite the oldest footage on the SD card, unless you wish it to stop once it gets filled up. The choice is yours.
When you’re ready to watch the video, remove the SD card, pop into your computer, and watch the video. Easily save the video files to your computer for unlimited archiving.
Motion Activated Or Continuous Mode Captures The Action
Capture & watch only the action. No more sitting through hours of video watching an empty room. Motion activated recording ensures you’ll never miss a thing. However, you can set the system to record all the time, and once the SD card gets filled up, it will automatically overwrite the oldest recordings.
A/C Outlet Powered to Setup & Record Hidden Video In Minutes
Take out of the box, and plug into any wall outlet to instantly start recording motion activated video. Quick. Simple. Easy. In case of a power outage, your system will automatically start up and record again with the same settings as before.
Optional 20 Hour Battery Provides Power Anywhere You Place It
When you need to either quickly drop-and-go your hidden camera or place it in an area where outlets are not an option, this system works with a removable and rechargeable battery that gives you up to 20 hours of continuous juice. This means your camera will capture everything for up to 20 hours, without missing a moment on continuous recording or motion activation. No wires to worry about plugging in or someone accidentally unplugging it.
