Plug this functional Socket Lead in any indoor room environment to surveillance your home | office | basement | hotel room around the clock 24/7. An integrated 8-megapixel camera provides stunning true HD video footage. Remotely record and view live footage on a smartphone from anywhere in the world through the secure FREE smartphone app. Activate motion recording or video recording when sound is detected, and should WiFi go down - the camera continues to monitor and record activity. Video footage is accompanied with super clear audio, plus a time and date stamp as evidence. British manufactured and designed for the highest workmanship and the only certified privacy-focused WiFi camera app available.
This British designed premium WiFi surveillance camera in the guise of a functional Socket Lead sets a new standard for monitoring your home | office. You can remotely view footage and record live video in true HD resolution accompanied by excellent sound quality to gather evidence on a smartphone from anywhere in the world.
Imagine you are travelling and need to monitor your location remotely? Launch the smartphone app to view events in real-time, manually record footage and/or take picture snapshots. Why not let the camera do the hard work? Enable the camera to record when motion is detected and store footage with a time and date to review on your smartphone at any time.
You can select various recording modes based on your preference with touch button controls including:
The new sound/video recording feature is not normally found on WiFi cameras. When this recording mode is enabled, the footage is captured when sound is triggered instead of by movement.
There is a skill to fitting pinhole cameras, and it takes a high level of professionalism to camouflage an 8-megapixel camera. We appreciate when gathering evidence to support sensitive situations can be stressful and that is why the workmanship is absolutely first class. There is no other WiFi camera product on the market with the same level of attention to detail.
The smartphone app can be downloaded from the Apple | Google Play Store and is the control hub for the Socket Lead's camera. The app is British designed and convenient for beginners and tech-savvy. At the touch of a button, you can watch, listen and record, plus take snapshots, change the recording mode, change the video resolution, zoom in/out, and delete or download video files to your camera roll, plus much more!
When motion recording is enabled, the intelligent stealth capture plays 5 seconds of footage before motion recording commenced, so when playing back recorded files, you will never miss any vital video evidence.
The app has a time and date calendar to navigate to all your stored video and snapshot recordings. Want to playback your content from a few days to months ago? Access the calendar to locate all your archived videos and snapshots from any particular date.
There is no other WiFi camera app with an investment focused on privacy that puts real protection back in your hands. The smartphone app is fully encrypted and certified so only YOU can access video files and snapshots. The server is hosted in the UK to encrypt a handshake between the camera and the smartphone app to authorise access through a series of algorithm signatures. The smartphone app is loaded with security features to please the most demanding privacy-minded user.
The Socket Lead is fitted with 32 GB of internal storage (upgradable to 256 GB upon request), and automatically stores recorded video | snapshot footage in an encrypted format. You can securely access files for playback, deletion and remote download to your smartphone's camera roll at any time.
Should the WiFi network drop out, the camera will continue to monitor the room environment and store video files as per the record settings. Although you will not be able to live view the camera in the event of a WiFi disconnection, all recorded files captured during the WiFi downtime will magically display on your smartphone app when the WiFi connection is re-established.
If there is no WiFi network available at the premises at all, then consider purchasing a small portable MiFi Dongle pre-fitted with a 3G | 4G | 5G SIM card to provide an instant WiFi network to which the camera can connect. The camera can also connect to a smartphone's Personal Hotspot (also referred to as tethering), and for much longer-term deployment, consider the Portable WiFi Pelibank Battery Case. See the 'More Information' tab for further details.
The camera has an intelligent onboard memory to store thousands of WiFi networks that it has previously been connected to. For example, if you connect the camera to your work's WiFi network -> then take the camera to a new location and connect it to your home network -> then take the camera to another new location and connect it to a hotel network, the onboard memory automatically stores each new network so you only need to power the Socket Lead within range and the camera will instantly connect to that network the next time. Designed for speed and convenience when moving the Socket Lead to different locations.
Intelligently, the camera measures the capable bandwidth when connected to a WiFi network, like an energy-efficient bulb, and distributes a weak internet connection across up to 5x different enclosure cameras on the same WiFi network.
For peace of mind, the camera will not display its SSID when connected to a WiFi network, thus remaining out of sight to 3rd parties searching for connected WiFi devices on the network.
Receive real-time push notifications to your smartphone whenever motion or sound is detected. Ideal for scenarios when you absolutely must know the moment an event occurs. Launch the app and live view activity as it happens.
As with all our WiFi cameras, the setup process requires minimal technical ability. You can be operational in 5 minutes from opening the box. There are no messy wires or IP configurations, and only a modern smartphone is required. You receive easy to follow instructions with video tutorials and access to customer support should it be needed.
Please contact us should you require a different style of Socket Lead or other customised product.
The Socket Lead is a fine example of exceptional workmanship where the entire design process is British manufactured as a seal of quality and safety. The investment to prioritise privacy built into the hardware is another unbeatable factor.
Note: The cable length of the Socket Lead is two meters. If you require longer, please contact us before placing an order.
DO ALL THE SOCKETS FUNCTION NORMALLY?
Yes. All the sockets operate as normal to power other electrical appliances. It is recommended to power smaller electrical appliances, for example, table lamps, laptops.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO TELL THAT A SURVEILLANCE CAMERA HAS BEEN FITTED?
The camera is professionally fitted on the edge and is neatly camouflaged. Live streaming and recording video footage is produced in true HD video with x10 selectable resolutions, and a powerful optical zoom to provide the best viewing regardless of room size. The audio microphone is completely invisible and has superior listening quality.
HOW IS THE WIFI CAMERA POWERED?
The Socket Lead must be plugged into a mains power. The WiFi camera does not require batteries or recharging.
HOW EASY IS THE WIFI SOCKET LEAD TO SET UP?
Only a modern smartphone with 3G | 4G | 5G and minimal technical ability are required. Being a UK company, our comprehensive setup instructions, including video tutorials, are easy to follow and takes less than 5 minutes, plus you will receive full support.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CONNECTING TO A WIFI NETWORK AND USING THE SMARTPHONE APP?
The secure smartphone app provides access and full control to the camera, including; setting the recording mode, changing the video resolution, contrast, brightness, hide the SSID (so people cannot detect the camera on a WiFi network), remotely viewing LIVE footage, taking picture snapshots, receiving push notifications (coming soon), and downloading recorded video files to your smartphone's camera roll. This is just a basic overview of the apps potential.
THERE IS NO WIFI WHERE I NEED TO DEPLOY THE SOCKET LEAD, HOW DO I LIVE VIEW ON A SMARTPHONE?
The camera must be connected to a WiFi network for live viewing on a smartphone. A small portable MiFi Dongle can be seperately purchased pre-fitted with a 3G | 4G | 5G SIM card to provide an instant WiFi connection at the premises.
You can also connect the camera to a smartphone's Personal Hotspot (also referred to as tethering), or for longer term deployment consider our Portable WiFi Pelibank Battery Case, which provides an instant MiFi connection and a power source too.
CAN THE SOCKET LEAD CAMERA OPERATE AS A STANDALONE, SELF-RECORDING CAMERA?
Yes. After the camera has been connected to a WiFi network or a portable tethering device to set the time and date and recording mode (must be done at the location), then the network or tethering device can be disabled and removed from the location. The camera remains in situ to continue monitoring and recording as a standalone DVR (digital video recorder).
WILL THE CAMERA SEND PUSH NOTIFICATIONS TO MY SMARTPHONE WHEN MOVEMENT IS DETECTED?
This feature is on our roadmap, as are many fantastic new features and will be available as a remote 'over the air' update when ready.
HOW MANY WIFI CAMERA'S CAN BE ADDED TO THE SAME APP?
Up to five cameras in various enclosure builds can be added. The Socket Lead's camera has an intelligent Eco-mode function that automatically monitors WiFi bandwidth in the background like an energy-efficient bulb. So even with a poor internet connection, the app can operate with up to 5x cameras on the same WiFi connection. You can also give each different camera a name, for example, hallway or living room or basement.
IS ACCESS TO THE CAMERA SECURE?
Yes. The app and camera have the highest privacy protocols so that only you can authorise access to the camera to another person/s by providing them with a random timed code. This procedure ensures any person/s that correctly input the login crudentials will not be able to access the camera without a code provided by you. You can revoke access to authorised person/s at any time.
HOW CAN I PLAYBACK RECORDED VIDEO FOOTAGE?
The camera stores video and picture snapshots in an encrypted format to its internal 32 GB capacity (upgradeable to 256 GB upon request). Recorded video files and snapshots can only be decrypted and accessed by you via the app to playback, delete or download files to your smartphone.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO VIEW THE CAMERA WHEN THE ROOM IS DARK?
While the camera is capable of handling low lighting conditions, it cannot view in complete darkness.
ARE THERE SOUNDS OR FLASHING LED'S THAT MAY ATTRACT UNWANTED ATTENTION?
No. This product is designed for the security | surveillance of your premises.
IF THE SOCKET LEAD IS UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS, WILL THE CAMERA STILL FUNCTION?
No. If the Socket Lead is disconnected from a mains power, the normal functionality and the WiFi camera will not be able to operate. When power is re-established the camera will automatically connect to the associated WiFi network.
CAN I MOVE THE SOCKET LEAD TO A NEW LOCATION?
Yes. The intelligent onboard memory automatically stores thousands of WiFi networks the camera connects to without the need to reset the camera each time. For example, if you connect the camera to your home WiFi network -> then take the camera to a new location and connect it to your work's network -> then take the camera to another new location and connect it to a friend's network, the onboard memory will store each different network without needing to set up each time. For convenience, the camera will automatically connect to the associated network when within range.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO CUSTOM | INTEGRATE THE WiFi CAMERA INTO A DIFFERENT PRODUCT?
Yes. Please contact us and let's talk.
