How is the camo unit powered?
For the maximum standby time of six (6) months, the camo unit supports up to eight (8) AA batteries. For three (3) months standby time, use four (4) AA batteries.
How do I set the time / date?
The camo unit has a hidden colour LCD display in which you can navigate through the various settings.
Is the camo unit motion activated?
Yes. Once deployed, it is ready to record once movement is detected. The recording mechanism is so fast the unit can switch ON and begin recording in just 0.8 seconds! Each movement recording creates a separate video file.
Can I change the sensitivity of the PIR sensors?
Yes. You can eliminate false recordings by adjusting the sensitivity mode between Low / Medium / High within the settings menu.
Will it record only during certain times of the week?
Yes. The settings menu allows your to pre-set scheduled recording which is ideal if you only wish to record certain days of the week only.
Where is the recorded footage accessed?
Recordings are stored to an SD card which slots inside the unit. The maximum SD card the camo unit will support is 16 GB.
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.
Can I protect access to the recorded footage?
Yes. You can pre-set a password protection to block unauthorised person/s from accessing the recorded video.
Will the camera's PIR sensors capture the entire area I wish to monitor?
There are three (3) PIR movement sensors in total - the main frontal sensor and two (2) further side PIR sensors. Any movement within a 'half-moon' coverage will trigger the camera to begin recording in less than two (2) seconds!
How far away will the PIR sensors detect movement?
The maximum detection range (optimum visual conditions) during daylight conditions is around 60 feet. We recommend a detection range of around 39-40 feet. During night time the detection range is reduced to around 15 feet.
Does the camera record in colour or black and white?
Both! During the day recording is captured in full colour and during the night (or under low-light conditions) the camera uses invisible infa-red LED's which illuminate the immediate area and recording is captured in black / white.
Do the infa-red LED's shine or have a reflective lens which will be noticed?
No. Each LED reflects just 940 NM which makes it impossible for the human eye to detect during darkness.

Yes. Although this is an optional upgrade using the drop down menu above. Recorded video footage is increased with sharper pixel resolution.
Can I use the camo outside the UK?
Yes. It is self-contained and portable therefore, can be used as the perfect security travel companion.
