Yes. This is a fully functional digital DAB radio for standard home or office use
Where is the hidden camera and audio microphone situated?
Cleverly hidden from view behind the grill fascia. It is not possible to notice the camera or microphone.
How is the hidden 3G camera powered?
The 3G camera uses a separate ON / OFF switch from the normal working functions of the radio. Once switched ON the camera obtains its power through the wall socket that the radio is plugged into.
What happens if the radio is switched OFF? Will the 3G spy camera still remain powered?
Yes. The 3G camera uses an internal lithium 'back-up' battery which activates once the radio is unplugged. The back-up battery provides sufficient power to provide up to 200 hours standby - that's eight (8) days of further operation! Once the radio is plugged back into the wall socket, the back-up battery trickle charges to full power.
Do the 3G video recordings have a time / date?
No. This is the same technology as making a video-call from your mobile phone which also does not support time / date functionality.
Is the 3G camera motion activated?
Yes. Once movement is detected, the radio will send you a text message to notify you whilst also recording the activities over a short period of time. At this point, you can interrogate the target location by making a video-call from your mobile phone to the radio.
Can I turn ON / OFF the motion detection feature?
Yes. All features of the 3G camera can be changed through the password protected menu screen which is accessed remotely from your mobile phone during a video-call.
Do I need credit on the associated SIM card inside the radio in order to receive SMS movement alerts?
Yes. Without credit, alerts cannot be sent to you.
Where is the recorded footage stored?
Recordings are stored to a Micro SD card hidden inside the radio. We supply a two (2) GB SD card with each radio. The radio can hold a maximum four (4) GB SD card.
How long is the recording time?
Through the password protected menu screen, the recording time is up to 200 hours!
Do I need to stay connected to the video-call to continue recording?
No. You can start recording or continue an already in progress recording and end the video-call anytime - recording will continue until the specified time to end recording.
Can I play back the video recordings on my Apple Mac?
Yes. The contents of the SD card can be viewed on either Windows or Mac computers and any other SD card player.
Does the 3G camera record in colour or black and white?
3G recording and viewing is full colour with clear audio too!
Does the camera record in a smooth motion?
Yes. Please bear in mind that 3G capability is the same quality as you would see on your mobile phone.
Can I use the radio outside the UK?
It is designed for use by 3-pin wall sockets operating 220 - 240 Volts. If you require a 2-pin European version please contact us.
