MOTION DETECTION WITH PUSH NOTIFICATIONS
The primary and most popular recording mode is motion detection. When you leave the premises that you wish to monitor, you can enable this function from within the smartphone app and review recorded video footage from within the app at a later time convenient to you.
Receive real-time push notifications to your smartphone whenever motion is detected. Ideal for scenarios when you absolutely must know the moment an event occurs. Launch the app and LIVE view the activity as it happens.

You receive easy-to-follow instructions plus access to our top-notch customer support should it be needed.
SIGNATURE INVISIBLE LENS
There is a skill to fitting pinhole cameras, and it takes a high level of professionalism to camouflage a camera well. We appreciate that 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.
SMARTPHONE APP FOR IPHONE | ANDROID DEVICES
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 super easy to use and convenient for beginners of all types.
PRIVACY AT THE FOREFRONT
Heavy financial investment was made by the workshop to ensure the server is hosted in the UK and with a UK license that puts real protection back in your hands. The server provides a secure handshake between the camera and the smartphone app to authorise access through a series of algorithm signatures designed to please the privacy-minded user.
UPGRADABLE STORAGE TO 256 GB
The Socket Lead is fitted with 32 GB of internal storage that is upgradable to a maximum of 256 GB upon request, prior to purchase. We can also accommodate up to 256 GB storage capacity.
WiFi DISABLED? NO PROBLEM.
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 view the camera live in the event of a WiFi disconnection, recorded files will continue to be captured and will magically list within the 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 portable MiFi Dongle to provide a wireless 4G 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.
INVISIBLE CAMERA ID (SSID)
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.
WE CAN CUSTOMISE FOR YOU
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. An investment to prioritise privacy to host the server in the UK with a UK license is another unbeatable factor.
The cable length of the Socket Lead is standard two meters.
Note: A high quality Piezo-electric microphone is fitted to the board that focuses specifically on speech within the surrounding vicinity. Noise from a televison, radio, background music or audio at long distances will be purposely disregarded by the microphone.
DO ALL 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 etc and not larger appliances like washing machines, fridges and Televisions.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO TELL THAT A SURVEILLANCE CAMERA HAS BEEN FITTED?
The camera is professionally fitted to the long edge and is neatly camouflaged. The audio compliments a high quality Peizo-electric microphone that is built onto the board and purposely focuses on speech within the immediate vicinity.
HOW IS THE WIFI CAMERA POWERED?
The Socket Lead must be plugged into a main's supply to power the WiFi camera. There are no batteries or recharging required.
HOW EASY IS THE WIFI CAMERA TO SET UP?
You will need a modern smartphone with an internet connection. The process of adding the camera to the smartphone app is done automatically thus making the setup extremely easy. Being a UK company, we provide clear setup instructions that will take less than a few minutes to be fully operational, plus you will receive full top-notch customer support.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CONNECTING THE CAMERA TO A WIFI NETWORK?
The camera is remotely controlled from a smartphone including; manual viewing and recording LIVE footage, taking picture snapshots, changing the recording mode, changing the video resolution, adjusting the contrast and brightness, plus receiving push notifications when motion is detected. You can also playback recorded video files, delete video files and download recorded video files to your smartphone's camera roll.
You may also grant other family members access to the camera by providing the camera ID and password. And you can revoke access at any time by changing the password.
THERE IS NO WIFI WHERE I NEED TO DEPLOY THE SOCKET LEAD, HOW DO I LIVE VIEW ON A SMARTPHONE?
The camera can be connected to a 4G / 5G MiFi Dongle or a tethering hotspot if a static router is not available. MiFi dongles are inserted with an active data SIM card to create an instant wireless WiFi connection at the premises.
Consider purchasing the Portable WiFi Pelibank Battery Case, which provides a combined MiFi connection and a 100'000 mAh power source too.
WILL THE CAMERA SEND PUSH NOTIFICATIONS TO MY SMARTPHONE WHEN MOVEMENT IS DETECTED?
Yes. This feature is ready to enable through the smartphone app. Once enabled, the camera will send a notification that will display on your smartphone whenever the camera detects movement.
IS THE SMARTPHONE APP SECURE?
Yes. Although the app is not developed by us, the engineers have purchased the license to hold the server in the U.K, ensuring peace of mind the camera does not route through to unknown overseas servers.
HOW MANY WIFI CAMERAS CAN BE ADDED TO THE SAME APP?
You may wish to monitor several areas within the same premises, therefore, up to three separate cameras can be added to the app.
HOW CAN I PLAYBACK RECORDED VIDEO FOOTAGE?
The camera stores video and snapshots to its internal 32 GB capacity (upgradeable to 256 GB upon request). Recorded video files and snapshots are stored in the memory and can be accessed via the app to playback, delete, or download recorded files to your smartphone's camera roll.
Note: Recorded files are displayed in order with the newest file footage starting at the bottom (rather than at the top).
IS IT POSSIBLE TO VIEW THE CAMERA WHEN THE ROOM IS DARK?
The camera is capable of handling low lighting conditions but it cannot view in the dark. The camera must have a decent amount of light in the room or a form of invisible IR (infra-red) lighting to enable the camera to see.
ARE THERE SOUNDS OR FLASHING LEDS THAT MAY ATTRACT UNWANTED ATTENTION?
No. This product is designed for the security and surveillance of your premises.
WHAT ARE THE CAMERA RESOLUTIONS?
When LIVE viewing on a smartphone the streaming resolution is nice and sharp @ 1080P. When downloading a video file to your smartphone the resolution reduces to 720P.
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 of the socket and the WiFi camera will not be able to operate. When power is re-established, the camera will automatically connect back to the associated WiFi network.
CAN I MOVE THE SOCKET LEAD TO A NEW LOCATION WITH A NEW WIFI NETWORK?
