This is ideal for use when there is no WiFi available and is a simple case of removing the SD card to review the captured footage on a Windows or Mac computer.
WiFi SOFTWARE APP FOR IPHONE AND ANDROID
If you wish to use the iDock to its maximum potential, using WiFi is extremely easy. Unlike other IP cameras the iDock has no messy wires, no ethernet cables, and no fumbling with network settings. Simply download the FREE software app available from the Apple / Google Play Store and enter the network password of the router where the iDock will be used - and your good to go! You can also receive movement notifications straight on your phone so you know exactly when somebody has entered your property and for extra security the SSID can be hidden through the software app so other people searching on the network cannot find the camera.
WATCH AND RECORD IN REAL TIME ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE OR TABLET
From anywhere, and at any time - whether you are sat on a bus, travelling on a train, waiting in a lounge - you can see what is happening through the iDock's camera on your mobile phone in real time. And dont forget, the iDock will automatically store all video footage to an SD card as backup, allowing you to remotely transfer saved video files from the SD card to your mobile phone through the app.
Stored video footage on the SD card is accompanied with audio and can be played back on a Windows or Mac computer. No special software or technical skill required.

Everything is controlled at the touch of a button!
HOW DO I KNOW WHERE TO POINT THE IDOCK TO GET THE BEST VIEW?
The camera is cleverly fitted on the front of the iDock's facia and has a decent 78 degree field-of-view so with minimal rehearsal its easy to turn the iDock and aim the camera towards the area you wish to monitor.
IS AUDIO SUPPORTED WHEN I WATCH LIVE?
Yes. Audio is supported when you are watching LIVE footage and audio is also recorded to the SD card.
WILL THE VIDEO FOOTAGE BE GOOD QUALITY?

Please note when viewing LIVE on your mobile phone the video is not live streamed in 1080P resolution - but it is exceptionally good quality footage because you are viewing on a small display. You will be impressed.
HOW DO I ACCESS THE RECORDED VIDEO FILES?
All video recordings are stored to a removable Micro SD card fitted inside the iDock. The maximum SD card capacity that can be used with this product is 32 GB which will store approx 16 hours of motion activated footage. A lower capacity SD card will store less recording.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO DOWNLOAD RECORDED VIDEO FILES FROM THE IDOCK TO MY MOBILE PHONE AS A BACKUP?
Yes. From within the software app simply go into the 'video files' menu and then select which files to download to your smartphone. Please note that your mobile phone must be on the same network as the iDock and have enough storage memory to support storing video files.
WILL THE IDOCK CAMERA RECORD AT NIGHT?
