A brand new release, the Dark Box WiFi Night Vision Camera provides you with fantastic home | office surveillance from a little portable 'oblong box' smaller than an iPhone and measures just 120 (L) x 75 (W) x 35 (D). The Dark Box Camera must be connected to a WiFi network and then creatively placed between books or under a paperweight, or casually placed on a desk or shelf to capture video evidence on your smartphone from anywhere in the world.
With an outstanding 12-month standby time, the Dark Box WiFi Camera can be deployed to monitor activity day and night - and over very long periods. Remotely view and record live video footage in 1080P HD resolution and when in complete darkness; the camera uses invisible night vision to produce excellent quality footage.
Imagine you are travelling and need to monitor your location remotely? Launch the smartphone app to view events in real-time, record footage and/or take picture snapshots. Why not let the camera do the hard work? Enable push notifications and instantly receive alerts to your smartphone when movement is detected. Was it something to be concerned about? You can playback recorded video footage straight away via the FREE smartphone app available to download from the Apple | Google Play Store. All captured files are securely stored and accompanied with audio and a time and date stamp for evidence.
Enjoy great picture viewing with a wide-angle field-of-view, and using pinch and zoom, the camera can get you closer to the action.
As with all our WiFi cameras, the setup is child's play! You can be operational in 5 minutes. No technical ability is required other than to follow our easy to follow guide. No messy wiring, no IP configurations, and only a modern smartphone are required.
The smartphone app is the control hub for the Dark Box Camera. It is easy to use and provides you with no-nonsense viewing, recording and playback controls. You can view, record, take picture snapshots, enable motion-activated recording, instantly playback video clips, download and/or delete video files, plus much more!
The app has a built-in calendar for fast navigation to all stored video and snapshots content, and you can download selected files from the app to your camera roll for safekeeping. Want to playback a video from a few days or a few months ago? Tap the calendar and navigate a particular date to access archived videos and snapshots.
For peace of mind, the Dark Box WiFi Camera does not display its SSID when connected to a WiFi network, thus remaining from discovery by 3rd parties searching for connected WiFi devices.
The Dark Box WiFi Camera can operate with or without an SD card. The maximum capacity SD card is 64 GB. Video recordings and picture snapshots are automatically stored without an SD card for 14 days. It is advised to insert an SD card and have peace of mind that your recordings are safely stored if you accidentally delete the camera from the app or delete the app from your smartphone. All stored video footage and picture snapshots can be downloaded from the app to your smartphone at any point.
This super little WiFi camera is easy to set up and operate, with astonishingly good battery performance plus invisible night vision. And being portable, the unit isn't restricted to a mains connection. This camera is, without doubt, a smart investment for customers looking for a quality and reliable remote camera system with secure app functionality.
Note: A USB mains plug (not supplied) is required to recharge the Dark Box WiFi Camera from a mains power. We offer a genuine Apple USB mains plug from the menu above.
HOW IS THE DARK BOX WIFI CAMERA POWERED?
2x 2600 mAh batteries power the unit. To recharge the unit, ensure the device is switched OFF and connect to a mains power. Charging takes approx 8 - 10 hours. An LED indicator shows when the unit is fully charged.
HOW LONG DOES THE DARK BOX LAST PER CHARGE?
Fully charged batteries will power the Dark Box in standby for 12 months from a single charge. Standby = actively monitoring but not triggered to record or send push notifications. For example, if the Dark Box were deployed in an empty house in early January to monitor for movement - there will be enough remaining power in late December to send a motion push notification to your smartphone, take a snapshot and video clip and store them to your smartphone app.
MUST THE DARK BOX BE CONNECTED TO A WIFI NETWORK AND USE THE SMARTPHONE APP?
Yes. The Dark Box is a WiFi surveillance camera that requires a connection to your home | office network (or mobile tethering device) and the FREE smartphone app available to download from the Apple | Google Play Store. We have different WiFi cameras that can operate when connected to a WiFi network AND as a standalone self-recording camera (without WiFi) if that is the better option.
WHAT IF THERE ISNT WIFI AT THE LOCATION?
You can create a WiFi hotspot also referred to as tethering by using a second mobile device (iPhone | iPad etc) with an active SIM card.
WHAT ARE THE RECORDING MODES OF THE DARK BOX CAMERA?
The most popular recording option is motion-activated recording. You can disable the motion recording function from within the smartphone app and manually record if you prefer. You can also enable 'Alarm Schedule' so the camera will only become active for motion recording between a start | end time that you specify.
WHY WOULD I USE THE ALARM SCHEDULE INSTEAD OF MOTION DETECTION ALL THE TIME?
You have better control over specified recording times for example, if you wish to record motion between the hours of 13:00 - 14:30 pm and not outside these hours because you will be present in the room. Or if you know activity takes place between night time hours of 23:00 - 03:00 am and do not require the camera actively monitoring outside these hours.
IS THE LIVE STREAMING AND RECORDING VIDEO QUALITY ANY GOOD?
Yes. Video resolution is pin-sharp @ 1080P and 15 FPS (frames per second). Live movement can lag slightly behind real-time movement depending on the speed and stability of the WiFi network and because of the purposeful way the camera utilises power consumption, the frame rate is slightly reduced.
HOW DO I ACCESS RECORDED FOOTAGE?
Video recordings (with audio) and picture snapshots are stored within the smartphone app for 14 days without an SD card fitted. With an SD card fitted (max 64 GB), recordings are stored until manually deleted and accessible through the app.
