The FREE smartphone app available from the Google Play / Apple Store gives easy remote control at the touch of a button including; motion, scheduled and continuous recording modes and push notifications when movement is detected. True HD 1080P resolution with audio and time/date stamp. Simply plug the socket lead in any indoor room environment for 24/7 security monitoring of your home / office premises.
Socket Lead Internet Camera; with Live Viewing, Recording and Push Notification
Another top draw security product for remote surveillance within the home or office is this functional Socket Lead (all four working sockets) which power other electrical items in the usual manner. It conceals a professional HD 1080P internet camera for live streaming video footage (with audio) to a smartphone from anywhere in the world.
Powered from the mains, no batteries or recharging are required so you can monitor 24/7 'around the clock' security of your premises. Simply connect the Socket Lead's camera to any WiFi network for example; home, office, hotel etc... to view and record live video footage, take picture snapshots, and in the event of movement, you can be alerted by push notification to a smartphone.
Imagine while travelling you receive a Push Notification that movement has been triggered. Simply 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 Socket Lead is suitable for use in most indoor room environments whilst also providing true HD colour resolution during the day with excellent low light image quality during low light conditions (but not darkness).
FREE ANDROID / IOS SMARTPHONE APP
The smartphone app is available to download from the Apple / Google Play Store and is the control hub for the Socket Lead's camera. Launch the app to set the time and date, adjust brightness and picture resolution, change the recording mode (motion recording, continuous recording and scheduled recording), enable/disable push notifications, view, record, download and delete video files + much more!
RECORD AS A STANDALONE, SELF-CONTAINED CAMERA
The Socket Lead camera can also work as a standalone DVR (digital video recorder) without being connected to a WiFi network. Using the smartphone app, select the best recording mode whilst you are away for example; motion detection, continuous, or scheduled recording (record only between certain hours) and video footage will be captured and stored to the Socket Lead's internal storage which you can later access through the smartphone app and playback footage. See 'More Information' tab for further details.
When the Socket Lead's camera detects movement your smartphone will be notified and a short video clip or picture snapshot will be saved to the smartphone app so that you can identify who or what triggered the camera. This feature can be enabled/disabled through the app.
MOTION DETECTION RECORDING
When this feature is enabled your smartphone will receive a push notification when the camera detects movement and a picture snapshot or short video clip (duration length can be set by you) will be saved.
SCHEDULED AND MANUAL RECORDING
The camera can also be assigned to record only between certain times of the day for example; 08:00 am - 13:00 pm or can be set to record continuously all day.
For peace of mind, the Socket Lead's WiFi camera will remain invisible from discovery by other 3rd party people searching for WiFi devices.
BACK UP STORAGE
The Socket Lead is fitted with 16 GB of internal storage (upgradable to 128 GB upon request), which automatically backs up and stores recorded video footage. The backup storage feature means in the event of an intrusion of your premises and you do not have access to a smartphone to be notified, you can be assured film footage has been captured and saved. The video files can only be accessed/played, deleted and remotely downloaded by you through the smartphone app.
FAST SETUP IN MINUTES
The setup procedure literally takes minutes. You only require the WiFi network name and password of the home/office/hotel etc. No messy wiring or complicated IP configurations. The Socket Lead is ready to work straight out of the box with any iPhone / Android mobile device.
If you do not have WiFi in the premises, simply purchase a portable 'Mobile WiFi' from any network provider for example; Vodafone, EE etc which comes fitted with a 4G / 5G SIM card. This effectively provides a WiFi network the Socket Lead can connect to.
USE IN LOCATIONS WITHOUT A WIFI NETWORK
If a WiFi network is not available at the location you wish to deploy the Socket Lead, and you still wish to have the functionality of live viewing and push notifications etc, then consider separately purchasing a Mi-Fi Dongle with a 3G/4G SIM card from most online and retail stores. See the 'More Information' tab for further details.

IF THE SOCKET IS LEAD IS PLACED ON THE FLOOR, WILL IT GET A GOOD VIEWING ANGLE?
We supply little magnetic pads which can be placed on the long edge of the Socket Lead to slightly raise the camera off the floor. You will find your own preferred way of deploying the Socket Lead which may not require the magnetic pads or placing on the floor.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CONNECTING THE SOCKET LEAD TO A WIFI NETWORK?
The smartphone app is FREE to download to an iOS and Android device from the Google Play / Apple Store. The app gives you full remote control of the camera which is professionally fitted inside the Socket Lead.

WHAT IF THERE IS NO WIFI WHERE I NEED TO DEPLOY THE SOCKET LEAD, BUT WISH TO LIVE VIEW ON A SMARTPHONE?
Many homes and offices are internet-connected by using a 'Mi-Fi Dongle' plugged into a mains power. A Mi-Fi Dongle is a small portable device, and can be purchased from most electrical retail stores. It is fitted with a 3G/4G SIM card (or you can insert your own SIM card) and enables devices like computers, smartphones and the Socket Lead to connect to the Dongle's 3G/4G network in the same way as connecting to a standard home/office WiFi router.
I CAN USE THE SOCKET LEAD AS A STANDALONE, SELF-RECORDING CAMERA?
Yes. You do not need to connect the Socket Lead to a WiFi network - the camera can also be used as a standalone video recorder too! Using the FREE smartphone app, you can set the Socket Lead's camera to record to its internal 16 GB storage (upgradable upon request) whenever motion is detected, or schedule the camera to record between certain times or record continuously.
To access recorded footage stored to the Socket Lead you would need to be within a 40 feet range of the Socket Lead and then launch the smartphone app to connect directly with the Socket Lead. All stored recordings would then magically appear within the app for video playback, downloading to a smartphone for safekeeping and file deletion.

Up to three (3) cameras can be added. Each camera can be given a separate name so that you know which camera is sending a push notification to you.

Yes. It is not possible to access the camera without the Camera ID and Password. Furthermore, the camera's unique SSID will be invisible and restricts 3rd parties from discovering the camera when searching for WiFi connected devices.
