The Ghost DVR is a magnetic 'black box' with the camera head professionally fitted to an 11 cm flexible ribbon. Ideal for camera 'peeks' for example; behind a bookcase, so only the camera 'peeks' over or through objects. Fit inside objects like a tissue box etc. Enable WiFi to remotely view and record live footage on a smartphone from anywhere in the world, or disable WiFi and use it as a standalone video recorder with SD card storage. Motion, scheduled and continuous recording modes. True HD 1080P resolution with audio and time/date stamp. British manufactured for the highest build quality and performance.
This magnetic spy camera is British manufactured with the camera head professionally fitted to the end of an 11cm flexible ribbon - ideal for creative concealment behind objects for example; place the Ghost DVR behind a bookshelf, so only the tiny camera 'peeks' over or through items, or fit inside a tissue box, flowerpot, packaging box, the base of a lamp or clothing. Once deployed, you can remotely view and record live video footage on a smartphone from anywhere in the world and receive push notifications when the camera detects movement, which is perfect for gathering evidence as required.
Imagine you are travelling and receive a Push Notification that movement has been triggered. Launch the smartphone app and live view the activity. Was it something to be concerned about? Tap the record button or take a picture snapshot.
The Ghost DVR is hand-rolled in sand and baked at temperature, then coated to a rough textured finish which minimises fingerprints and other grubby elements. A coiled internal antenna helps maintain a strong WiFi connection, and an ON / OFF power switch, external jack socket, charging port and SD card slot complete the beautiful finished appearance.
The Ghost device can be connected to a home or office WiFi network and used for remote CCTV camera surveillance to view live video footage, record live video footage and picture snapshots, and then playback recordings and download recordings to the smartphone camera roll for safekeeping. You can also receive Push Notifications to a smartphone when motion is detected - alerting you of movement when you are not there.
The Ghost camera can also be used as a standalone DVR (digital video recorder), with multiple recording modes, including; motion-activated, continuous, and scheduled recording. For example, set the unit to record between the hours of 08:00 am - 11:00 am. Recordings will be stored to a Micro SD card inside the Ghost DVR which you can remove and playback footage on a Windows and Mac computer.
The smartphone app is available to download from the Apple / Google Play Store and is the control hub for the Ghost camera when connected to a WiFi network. Launch the app to control the Ghost camera remotely, set the time and date, adjust picture resolution, view, record, download and delete video files, plus much more!
As with all our WiFi camera systems, the setup is super easy! No technical ability is required. The smartphone app has a friendly interface, so you can be up and running in two minutes. No messy wiring, no IP configurations, and no computer required.
The Ghost DVR has an actual megapixel 1080P camera for sharp colour imagery. Hence, whether you view live footage or playing back recorded video on a smartphone or computer, the picture quality remains consistent and vibrant.
Micro SD cards up to 128 GB can be inserted to store recorded video footage/picture snapshots. The SD card contents can be remotely accessed from a smartphone, played back, downloaded and deleted through the smartphone app. No SD card is supplied. However, a 16 GB or 32 GB card can be optionally purchased from the menu above.
For peace of mind, the Ghost DVR will not display its unique SSID name when connected to a WiFi network, thus remaining invisible from discovery by other people searching for connected WiFi devices.
The Ghost DVR has an internal fully rechargeable 1'000 mAh battery which provides approx 3 hours of operation time per charge. If you require longer battery performance, connect a Power Bank to the Ghost DVR or connect to a mains power. For example, a 6'700 mAh Power Bank will provide 12 hours of operation time. A 10'000 mAh Power Bank will provide 24 hours of operation time. Connecting the Ghost DVR to a mains power will provide unlimited operation time.
If a WiFi network is not available at the location you wish to deploy the Ghost DVR, and you still need the functionality of live viewing and push notifications, consider purchasing a Mi-Fi Dongle with a 3G/4G/5G SIM card from an online and retail store. See the 'More Information' tab for further details.
Please contact us should you require the Ghost DVR custom-built into products.
Please note the internal battery of the Ghost DVR requires recharging through a mains power, and a USB Plug is needed. Should you not own a USB Plug, the option to purchase a genuine Apple USB Plug is available from the menu above.
HOW IS THE GHOST DVR POWERED?
An integrated 1'000 mAh fully rechargeable battery powers the Ghost camera for approx 3 hours on a single charge and can be connected to any external Power Bank for longer battery times. For example, connecting a 10'000 mAh Power Bank will provide 24 hours of operational use. The Ghost can also be connected to a mains power for constant functional use.
HOW DO I DEPLOY THE GHOST CAMERA?
The base of the Ghost unit is magnetic and can be attached to metal surfaces if required. However, most users place the Ghost DVR behind an object and have the camera head 'peeking' over. The main benefit of having the camera head fitted to the end of an 11 cm flexible ribbon means you can hide the Ghost DVR inside objects like a tissue box and firmly hold the camera head to the inner surface using the hot glue lens mount, which cuddles the camera head in place. The lens mount allows the camera head to be easily removed and clicked back into place again.
CAN I LIVE VIEW AND RECORD VIDEO FOOTAGE AND PICTURE SNAPSHOTS?
Yes. You can launch the smartphone app at any time to remotely view live footage, manually record live footage and take picture snapshots. You can also enable motion-activated recording, scheduled recording or continuous recording. Recorded files can be downloaded from the Ghost DVR to your smartphone for safekeeping.
WHERE IS THE VIDEO FOOTAGE STORED?
The Ghost DVR can store video and picture snapshots to a Micro SD card (128 GB maximum). Recorded files stored on an SD card can be remotely accessed, played back, deleted or downloaded to a smartphone. You can also remove the SD card from the Ghost DVR and play the recorded files on a Windows or Mac computer without any special software.
MUST I CONNECT THE GHOST DVR TO A WIFI NETWORK?
While connecting the camera to a WiFi network provides an awesome array of remote functionality, the Ghost can also function as a motion-activated DVR (digital video recorder) camera without the need to connect it to a WiFi network. In this case, the backup recorded video footage stored on the SD card can be removed, and the contents played on a Windows or Mac computer or can be remotely accessible through the smartphone app and when you are within range. All stored recordings would then magically appear within the app for video playback, deletion or file download to a smartphone for safekeeping.
WHAT IF I NEED REMOTE VIEWING, BUT THERE IS NO WIFI NETWORK IN THE AREA?
Many homes and businesses do not have a fixed WiFi router on the premises and use a 'Mi-Fi Dongle' plugged into a mains power. A Mi-Fi Dongle is a convenient portable device, available to purchase from any retail and online store and comes with a 3G/4G/5G SIM card fitted inside (or you can insert your own SIM card). Your computer, smartphone or any other WiFi-enabled device like the Ghost DVR can connect to the Dongle's 3G/4G/5G network in the same way as connecting to a standard home/office WiFi router.
CAN I ACCESS THE CAMERA USING MY PC COMPUTER?
No. Only a smartphone is required.
IS IT POSSIBLE OTHERS CAN REMOTELY VIEW THE GHOST DVR WIFI CAMERA?
No. The SSID name and password are required. Also, when the Ghost DVR is connected to a WiFi network, the camera's SSID name is not visible to any person/s searching for WiFi devices.
HOW GOOD IS THE VIDEO / PICTURE RESOLUTION ON A SMARTPHONE?
The Ghost DVR is equipped with a megapixel camera lens which produces true 1080P resolution. The image quality is excellent and can also be fine-tuned through the app to adjust picture brightness and contrast for the best viewing pleasure. It should be noted the recording and playback resolution is 1280 x 720 HD.
WHY IS THE GHOST DVR MAGNETIC?
The magnetic base provides additional deployment capabilities, for example, behind a filing cabinet or metal shelving, or in our example, behind a TV set.
DOES THE GHOST DVR EMIT FLASHING LIGHTS OR SOUNDS THAT MAY DRAW ATTENTION?
No. Through the smartphone app, you can disable LED's.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO CUSTOM BUILD THE GHOST DVR CAMERA INTO A PRODUCT FOR ME?
Yes. Please contact us with your requirements.
