Yes. Although this is an optional upgrade from the drop down menu. Recorded video footage is increased from 640 x 480 to 1440 x 1080 resolution for superior image quality.
Is the outdoor unit motion activated?
Yes. The unit also supports scheduled recording too! The recording mechanism is so fast the unit can switch ON and begin recording in just 0.8 second! Each recording creates a separate video file.
Can I change the sensitivity of the PIR sensors?

Will the camera's PIR sensors capture the entire area I wish to monitor?
There are three (3) PIR sensors fitted on the device. A main front PIR sensor and two (2) side PIR sensors. Any movement within a 'half-moon' coverage will trigger the camera to switch ON in less than 0.8 second! This ensures the camera is ready to record immediately the moment anything comes into view.
How far away will the PIR sensors detect movement?
The maximum detection range during day time is 65 feet. During night time the detection range is reduced to around 25 feet.
Does the camera record in colour or black and white?
You can choose between colour 640 x 480 resolution, or colour 1440 x 1080 resolution. During the night, even in complete darkness the device records very clear black / white recordings.
