Small, Portable 'Dark Box' Recorder; with 29 Days Standby & 720P HD Resolution
This is a self contained and portable Dark Box HD Camera Recorder in a high gloss finish proudly sitting amongst the best surveillance standalone recording systems. This unobtrusive square box will easily blend into most room environments for example: on a table, desk, on the shelf, in a stock room, placed between books etc - where it will actively monitor for movement.
You will be surprised how placing a simple object such as a small cup, vase of flowers, or an ornament on top of the Dark Box melts into the environment. The Dark Box secret camera is powered from an internal fully rechargeable lithium battery which provides 699 hours (29 days) standby time on a single charge. This makes the Dark Box ideal for medium term video surveillance of your building premises.
HD 720P VIDEO RESOLUTION
The Dark Box HD Camera Recorder records video at 1280 x 720 resolution, plus invisible infa-red filters sit behind the fascia (not detectable to the human eye) to illuminate the immediate area when used in low light conditions. This means video footage is captured during the day in full colour, and during the night video footage is captured in black and white.
Please Note: Because there are no visible pin holes, the camera sits behind a solid dark fascia which means the video footage has less colour. This factor should not deter from how good the product is and its excellent functions.
The Dark Box has selectable recording modes so you can switch between motion detection recording and scheduled recording - and vice versa. An SD card storage capacity holds up to 128 hours of video footage, and the Dark Box Camera works straight out of the box without any technical skill to operate. Footage can be played, stored or emailed on any Windows or Mac computer.
MOTION ACTIVATED EXPLAINED
By default, the Dark Box Camera is configured to record when motion movement is detected. Simply place the unit within the target location and walk away. Whenever movement is detected within the cameras field of view, recordings will be activated without any indication to a perpetrator and footage stored to the SD card (not supplied).
Using motion detection means only the relevant video footage is being captured which conserves storage space and eliminating the need to trawl through unwanted footage.
Recording will continue for five (5) seconds after non movement - then the unit will go into a deep power saving mode ready to record again when motion is triggered. A new, separate video file is created and this cycle will continue until the SD is full.
Alternatively, you may select Loop Recording which means that once the total SD card storage is reached, the earliest footage will be overwritten (looped over).
The Dark Box Camera can be activated to record between preset times that you specifiy on a date. This setting is ideal if you know beforehand exactly when activities are likely to take place so the Dark Box isnt wasting valuable battery resources.
This is an ingenious device - portable, self contained, and a fantastic security camera to capture events day and night with exceptional standby time.
Please note you will need to use your own SD card or purchase a 16 GB or 32 GB from the menu above.
