Mini DVR Tilt Camera Box
A mini DVR motion activated spy camera capable of recording pin-sharp HD 720P footage and a range of impressive functions including a moveable (rotating) camera lens. Self-contained and portable, this surveillance camera offers a wide angle lens, 10 hours of recording and is ideal for undercover filming or security monitoring in almost any indoor environment. Optional iSmart power bank adds maximum battery juice too.
Compact, Mini DVR Black Box; with Rotatable Wide Angle HD Camera Lens
This small, self contained, surveillance camera is the sister product to the Micro HD Black Box Recorder but supports a much wider 160 degree viewing angle with a physically moveable camera head to obtain the best recording position. This compact Mini DVR Tilt Camera Box is the ideal portable camera for deployment in most indoor and possibly some outdoor environments.
Simply place the Mini Camera Box amongst everyday objects, or even inside a tissue box (with a small cut out hole) or inside other inconspicuous items. The possibilities to gather video footage accompanied with clear audio and a time and date stamp with this little recording marvel are endless.
Video footage is captured in high definition 1280 x 720 resolution, and an intelligent Auto Switching Mode whcih can be switched ON / OFF actively monitors lighting conditions to enhance overall picture quality.
The Mini DVR Tilt Camera is supplied with an easy-to-use Widget software (Windows and Mac compatible) to change the settings of the device between five (5)x recording modes.
MOTION MOVEMENT RECORDING
Any movement within range of the Mini Tilt Camera will trigger recording to begin. Recording will continue for a minimum of 10 minutes once triggered. If no further movement is detected after 10 minutes, the video file is saved to a removable Micro SD card (not supplied), and the device resumes active movement monitoring once again.
Please note you will need to use your own SD card or purchase a 16 GB or 32 GB card from the menu above.
CONTINUOUS, SCHEDULED, VIBRATION & AUDIO RECORDING MODES
- Recording can be activated to continuously record until physically stopped
- You can preset a time and date in which the Mini Tilt Camera actively monitors the environment between those specified hours
- Should the Mini Tilt Camera receive a slight knock or physical movement, recording will commence
- The internal microphone of the Mini Camera can actively monitor room environments for sounds - and record video footage when audio is triggered above a preset threshold
160 DEGREE WIDE ANGLED CAMERA LENS
The Mini Tilt Camera is equipped with a 'fish eye' camera lens for a better rounded vision ensuring a wider scope of a room is captured.
TILTABLE CAMERA HEAD
For situations when you just need that little extra leverage to aim the camera for a better recording position. As an example: you can place the Mini Tilt Box high on a shelf and rotate the camera head downwards to capture everything below - and vice versa.
The Mini DVR Tilt Camera is supplied with a Widget software, compatible with Windows and Mac computers. By connecting the camera to your computer, the Widget software can be opened to select any number of different recordable options to suit your requirements.
UNLIMITED STANDBY TIME
For longer monitoring capability, by plugging the Camera Box into a mains power provides unlimited standby operation.
Please Note: As the Camera Box will then be receiving power from an external source (rather than via its own internal lithium battery), audio quality will slightly depreciate.
OPTIONAL iSMART POWER BANK
Wrapped inside a scratch resistant shell, this external power bank measures just 90 x 20 x 40 mm and provides a huge 6'700 mAh of additional battery juice. Not specifically for the Mini DVR Tilt Camera, but for any external electrical device connected to the iSmart Power Bank including iPhone, Android and tablet devices. Simply connect the iSmart to the Tilt Camera to maintain charge for approx five (5) times longer than its own in-built 1'200 mAh lithium battery.
Recordings are stored to a removeable SD card which can be played on any Windows and Mac computer.
The Mini Tilt Box can be used as a wireless and portable surveillance video recorder placed within / or amongst other items to capture high quality footage for evidential purposes.
How can the internal 1'200 mAh battery performance be maximised?
The tilt camera has a settings menu which can be adjusted depending on your preferences. As a general rule of thumb, the higher the quality of the settings a reduction in overall battery performance can be expected.
Generally, the better the recording quality and the more features activated together will reduce overall battery performance.
Can I connect an external power bank or plug the camera into a wall socket for more performance?
Yes. If the tilt camera is connected to a mains socket then constant power is applied and there is no need to be concerned about battery drain. Please note that audio quality can suffer due to the camera receiving mains feedback. Another option is to purchase the external iSmart power bank which simply plugs into the tilt camera to boost the devices own 1'200 mAh internal battery with a further 6'700 mAh of performance.
The iSmart power bank is available from the drop down menu for just £15.00 and is a superb investment not only for the tilt camera, but also to fully recharge your mobile phones and tablets when battery is low. Always a good accessory to keep handy.
Can I place the device inside other items?
The device is small enough to remain in plain sight amongst everyday objects, or customise your own hideout inside a tissue box or teddy bear or perhaps hollow out a book! The possibilities are endless.
Are there any beeps or sounds the mini box makes?
No. Due to the absence of moving parts, there are no sounds, beeps, or any indicators that would draw attention to the box.
Does the camera have a swivel / adjustable camera head?
Yes. A great function of this little device allows you to manually rotate the camera lens to get a better viewing / recording position for example: place the device high up and adjust the camera lens to point downwards overlooking the area, or perhaps place the device low to the floor and adjust the camera lens upwards.
What is the quality of recording like?
Excellent! You can select between 1280 x 720 HD resolution or 640 x 320 standard resolution. When in HD recording, the footage is pin sharp and smooth with fantastic vivid colours.
Does the box record with audio?
Will the viewing angle capture a full room?
Yes. The device is equipped with a wide scope 160 degree field-of-view camera lens, therefore, capturing a full view of a room or area is possible.
Can it record in the dark?
No. Although there is a customisable setting to activate low light recording but this should not be confused with complete darkness recording.
Will the mini tilt box record when motion activated?
Yes. The device has several recording modes including continuous recording, motion movement recording, scheduled recording, vibration recording and sound activated recording.
Where are the video recordings stored?
The mini tilt box has a slot to accommodate a removable Micro SD card (not supplied) which is where all the video footage is stored to. The SD card can be removed from the device and played on any Windows or Mac computer.
Can I change the time & date or other settings?
Yes. You are supplied with both Windows and Mac software. Simply connect the mini tilt box to your computer then open the software to display the settings menu. From here you can select different options to configure the device exactly how you want it to work for you.
