Smoke Alarm; with Live WiFi Viewing, Motion Detection Recording and Push Notifications

A Smoke Alarm is a creative way to incorporate a ceiling-mounted motion-activated surveillance camera into your home, office, stockroom, outbuilding or workshop.  Powered by an internal, fully rechargeable battery, the Smoke Alarm will monitor the activity below for approx. 30 days on a single charge!  No wiring or connection to the main power.  The Smoke Alarm is completely portable and can be mounted and dismounted anytime.  The camera provides remote CCTV live viewing and recording through a smartphone and from anywhere in the world.

Imagine while travelling you receive a Push Notification that movement has been triggered.  Launch the smartphone app and view the activity LIVE.  Was it something to be concerned about?  Tap the record button or take a picture snapshot as evidence.

iOS | ANDROID SMARTPHONE APP

Available to download from the Apple | Google Play Store, the smartphone app puts you in full control of the Smoke Alarm's security camera at the tap of a button.  You can enable push notifications so that your smartphone will receive an on-screen alert when the camera detects movement while recording 60 seconds of video evidence.  Recorded footage can be accessed through the app and is also backed up to an optional removable Micro SD card fitted inside the Smoke Alarm.  Launch the app to watch real-time activity, record the room environment, take picture snapshots, set up scheduled recording times, and playback captured video footage.

Note: The intelligent motion detection sensor will only trigger the full 60-seconds of recording if the movement continues for 5 seconds or longer.  Less than 5 seconds of movement and the recording will stop after 10-15 seconds to reduce false triggers and save storage space and battery performance.

LONG BATTERY PERFORMANCE

The Smoke Alarm is powered by a 4'200 mAh internal battery that provides up to 30 days of operational time.  A helpful battery indicator is shown on the smartphone app, so you know when the camera requires recharging.  Battery performance will vary depending on the number of recordings, the length of each recording, and how often you launch the app to live view; however, up to 30 days can be achieved, which is a fantastic performance from a single charge!

Charging the Smoke Alarm is easy by dismounting the unit from the ceiling and connecting the unit to mains power.  An LED indicator will advise when the Smoke Alarm has achieved full charge.  Then easily mount the Smoke Alarm back onto the ceiling to continue remote surveillance.

EASY SETUP

The smartphone app guides you through the setup steps with a breeze.  No technical skill is required, and you can have the camera online within minutes.  Remotely monitor your room environment, including; office, basement, workshop, stockroom, lobby, caravan, holiday home etc

WHY USE A SMOKE ALARM CAMERA?

The Smoke Alarm is mounted high on a ceiling, out of people's reach and less likely to be noticed due to its popularity as a safety product.  The Smoke Alarm is a great product if you need to:

  • Receive instant alert notifications when anybody enters a room in your house or office
  • Capture and record video evidence of a sneaky thief in the act
  • Have peace of mind that your elderly parents, children or pets are safe when you are not there
  • Remotely check business premises are secure

No SD card is supplied with this product; however, an option to purchase a 16 GB or 32 GB card is available from the menu above.

Note: The Smoke Alarm is not functional.

More Information

F.A.Q's

IS THE SMOKE ALARM EASY TO CEILING MOUNT?

Yes.  Attach the base of the Smoke Alarm (supplied rawl plugs and screws) to a ceiling directly above the area below that you wish to monitor.  For example, in our images, we have the base of the Smoke Alarm fitted directly above a door.  The Smoke Alarm can be mounted and dismounted by easily twisting onto the base.  The camera pointed directly downwards through the natural slot in the design of the Smoke Alarm and has a 65-degree field-of-view.

DOES THE SMOKE ALARM FUNCTION AS NORMAL?

No.  Due to the internal mechanism that includes the camera and power supply, the Smoke Alarm does not operate as a functional unit.

CAN THE SMOKE ALARM WORK AS A SELF-RECORDING CAMERA WITHOUT USING WIFI?

No.  The Smoke Alarm is designed to work only when connected to a WiFi network (home, office) and with the smartphone app, available to download to iOS and Android devices.  Setup and connection are very easy without wiring or fiddly configurations.  Ideal for remotely monitoring a hallway, corridor, or stockroom where the camera is fitted out of reach.

HOW DO I POWER THE SMOKE ALARM?

The Smoke Alarm houses an internal fully rechargeable 4'200 mAh battery, capable of powering the camera for approx. 30 days operation time.  When the Smoke Alarm battery requires recharging (indicated through the smartphone app), the Smoke Alarm can be removed from the ceiling base and connected to a mains power via the supplied charger.

WHAT IS A REALISTIC OPERATING TIME FOR THE SMOKE ALARM ONCE DEPLOYED?

In our tests, we comfortably achieved 30 days of operational time, including a few push notifications to our smartphone when the camera detected movement.  To maximise battery performance, you should use this product as a security CCTV whereby you do not need to keep checking the live camera all the time or tapping the record button so often.  Instead, let the camera do the hard work by monitoring and recording activity and sending you a push notification when movement is detected.  Keep an eye on the battery indicator within the smartphone app as a general idea of when to recharge the unit.

HOW DO I GET ACCESS TO VIDEO FOOTAGE?

All recorded video is accessible on your smartphone.  An internal Micro SD card (up to 32 GB capacity) can also be fitted into the Smoke Alarm to store backup video footage.  You can remotely view video footage stored on an SD card on your smartphone and also transfer video files from the SD card to your smartphone.  You can directly access the recorded footage by removing the SD card from the unit to play the video files on a Windows or Mac computer.

WHY IS EACH RECORDING DURATION ONLY 60-SECONDS?

To maximise battery performance to a realistic 30 operational days, the recording length of each motion-activation is limited to 60-second bursts.  If there is movement after 60-seconds, the camera will continue to record by creating a new video file for a further 60-seconds... and so on.

Note: The intelligent motion detection sensor will only trigger the full 60-seconds of recording if the movement continues for 5 seconds or longer.  Less than 5 seconds of movement and the recording will stop after 10-15 seconds to reduce false triggers and save storage space and battery performance.

DOES THE SMOKE ALARM CAMERA SUPPORT SCHEDULED RECORDING?

Yes.  The smartphone app allows you to select various times of the day of the week to enable motion-activated recording during specified times.  For example, set the camera to detect movement on Tuesday and Thursday between the hours of 10:00 - 15:00.

CAN OTHER PEOPLE SEE I HAVE A CAMERA CONNECTED TO MY WiFi NETWORK?

No.  Once the camera is connected to a WiFi network, the camera's SSID is not discoverable to persons (including yourself) searching for WiFi-connected devices.

IS LIVE VIEWING AND RECORDED VIDEO SHARP LOOKING?

Images are pin-sharp because the Smoke Alarm has HD 1080P camera resolution.  To maximise battery performance, the frame rate (FPS) is automatic and will stream a couple of seconds slower than the real-time movement.
