Can the radio be seen that it has any hidden features?
No. The radio looks and operates just like a normal radio. This is ideal for long-term monitoring of your home / office for security and surveillance purposes.
Does the radio have night-vision?
Yes. This is an optional upgrade from the drop-down menu. Please remember that all night vision / invisible infa-red must have some form of LED's fitted to the radio in which to illuminate the immediate area during low-light conditions. We have fitted three (3) very small LED"s to the front fascia of the radio without making the appearance to obvious.
Do I need to configure my broadband settings for the radio to work?
No. The supplied software sent to your specified email address is installed to your computer / laptop and automatically configures the setup - eliminating any technical procedure. You are only required to type the network security key (password) to authorise the hidden Wi-Fi camera to use your broadband connection.
I have a Mac computer, can I use this product?
Yes. For Mac users, you either need to run your Mac in 'Emulator Mode' which allows you to switch to the Windows operating system, or alternatively, install the software called 'Parallel' followed by a Windows installation after. This effectively partitions the Mac computer to be 50% Mac and 50% Windows. Please note that we recommend you confirm this procedure with an Apple representative BEFORE purchasing if you intend using a Mac computer with this product.
What if I don't have an internet connection at the location I wish to monitor?
We can modify the digital radio with a standard GSM SIM card so the video footage can be viewed / recorded over the SIM card's GPRS data connection (instead of a Wi-Fi connection). For UK customers we recommend the network '3' with unlimited data for as little as £12.50 per month WITHOUT A CONTRACT. Please contact us for this additional modification.
Where is the spy camera and audio microphone situated?
Cleverly situated behind the frontal main fascia. An advantage of using this radio is that the front fascia which hides the camera can be pointed in any 360 degree viewing angle.
Does the radio have a motion activated camera?
Yes. You may switch ON / OFF this feature and all other security features from your Wi-Fi software based console (supplied). Once movement (or audio) is detected, the radio will send you an email notification whilst then recording the activities. The email notification will also contain a picture attachment allowing you to interrogate the target location in the event of an intruder.
Where is the recorded footage stored?
Recordings are stored to the computer in which you have the software console installed. Recording times are dependant upon the storage capacity of the computer's hard-drive. A decent sized hard-drive can store many weeks or months of recording capability.
Are there any ongoing costs involved with this Wi-FI system?
There are no costs except those incurred by your existing broadband internet provider and those associated by SMS notification and the optional GSM connectivity module.
Does the broadband connection need to remain active and powered for the radio's camera to work?
Yes. Disconnecting the power supply to the radio or broadband connection will disable the purpose of the hidden IP camera's viewing and recording capability.
Does the Wi-Fi spy camera record in colour or black and white?
Wi-Fi recording and viewing is full colour at 640 x 480 resolution with audio.
