This fully functional iDock Charger sits proudly on a desk or other flat surface to cradle and recharge | power an iPhone or Android smartphone. The Charging Dock has a clever architecture that professionally houses a miniature internet camera so you can remotely view LIVE and record activities on your smartphone - from anywhere in the world! The iDock Charger is the perfect hidden camera to monitor your living room, kitchen, office boardroom, meeting room, stock room, workshop, etc.
Imagine you are travelling and need to monitor your premises remotely. Launch the smartphone app to view events in real-time, manually record video and/or take image snapshots. Why not let the camera do the hard work? Enable the camera to record and store video clips when motion is detected.
If you do not wish to connect the camera to a WiFi network, the iDock Charger will operate as a standalone motion-activated camera - recording and storing events to an SD card while you are absent. This is an innovative and modern accessory to grace any home or office environment, providing 24/7 'around the clock' CCTV surveillance without drawing attention.
NO BATTERIES OR RECHARGING
The iDock is mains powered to operate indefinitely as both a charger for your smartphone and a remote camera system; therefore, no batteries or recharging is required.
SECURE SMARTPHONE APP FOR IPHONE | ANDROID
Unlike other IP cameras, the iDock has no messy wires, no ethernet cables, and no fumbling with network settings. Download the smartphone app (available from the Apple | Google Play Store) to control the camera on a tablet or smartphone. We also provide clear step-by-step instructions to help you get up and running immediately.
NO WIFI? NO PROBLEM.
The iDock Charger will also work straight out of the box as a self-recording motion-activated surveillance camera - without a WiFi network connection. When activity is detected, video recording will commence, automatically storing recorded footage to an SD card inside the iDock. No special software is required to playback the footage. A Windows or Mac computer or other SD card media player will work fine. A time and date and clear audio accompanies recorded files.
HIGH DEFINITION FOOTAGE
Whether you are watching live video or playing back recorded footage, the iDock Charger Camera produces stunning pin-sharp 1080P resolution quality with fluid and smooth real-time movement.
ULTRA LOW IR CAMERA LENS
The iDock has an embedded low-light IR (infra-red) that automatically activates to produce a brighter screen lighting display when the room ambience changes, for example, when natural light diminishes as the night draws in. The camera can monitor events and record motion detection in the most challenging room conditions. Please note this does not mean a completely lights-out darkened room environment.
SUPPORTS ALL MOBILE DEVICES
Whether you are on a bus, a train, or travelling around a different country, you can see what is happening in real time through the iDock camera on an iPhone, Android or tablet device. Remember, the iDock will automatically monitor activity so you don't need to - and automatically store video footage on an SD card as a backup. When you return and connect your mobile device to the same WiFi network as the camera, all the recordings will magically appear in the app recording list for your perusal, or you can remove the SD card and view the footage in your leisure time.
To help you get up and running conveniently, a high-quality 16 GB SD card is included at no extra cost.
The iDock Camera is an outstanding product for providing peace of mind with remote video surveillance on a smartphone without the associated costs of an expensive CCTV system.
CAN THE iDOCK CHARGE MY IPHONE AND ANDROID SMARTPHONE?
Yes. Whether you own an iPhone or Android smartphone, the iDock is a regular smartphone charger supplied with interchangeable USB type C, Micro USB and Apple Lightning connectors.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO KNOW THE iDOCK IS FITTED WITH A SPY CAMERA?
The iDock can withstand a casual visual inspection and adds authenticity to the product by powering and charging smartphones in the usual way. The recording mechanism and SD card slot are concealed behind a removable cover. The unit should not be handed out for close physical handling.
CAN THE iDOCK RECORD WITHOUT BEING CONNECTED TO WIFI?
Yes. The iDock Charger can record motion-activated events as a self-recording camera without being connected to any WiFi network. The smartphone app allows you to pre-set the recording mode (continuous or motion detection) and automatically stores recorded footage to a Micro SD card (inside the iDock) for later review. SD card recordings will playback on a Windows or Mac computer or other SD card media player as standard and without special software.
WHAT IS A SMARTPHONE APP?
The smartphone app for iOS and Android devices provides much more functionality, especially when the camera is connected to a WiFi network. The smartphone app is available to download from the Apple | Google Play Store and allows you to access the camera settings to update the time and date, change the recording mode, hide the SSID (so other people cannot see the camera on a WiFi network), remotely watch the footage in real-time, receive push notifications (when movement is detected) plus remotely download video files stored in the app to your smartphone's camera roll.
HOW WILL I GET THE BEST CAMERA VIEW?
The camera is cleverly fitted on the front of the iDock's facia and has a decent 78.2-degree field view. Aiming the camera towards the area you wish to monitor is easy with minimal rehearsal.
IS AUDIO SUPPORTED WHEN I WATCH LIVE?
Yes. Audio is supported whether you are watching LIVE footage or playing back recordings. You may disable audio inside the settings menu of the app.
IS VIDEO FOOTAGE GOOD QUALITY?
Yes. Video footage is streamed live and recorded in glorious 1080P HD resolution. Furthermore, the camera is embedded with an automatic infra-red to support viewing and recording room environments with minimal natural lighting.
HOW DO I ACCESS RECORDED VIDEO FILES?
Video files are stored on a removable Micro SD card inside the iDock. When your smartphone is connected to the same WiFi network as the camera, all recordings on the SD card will magically be copied to the app and listed in chronological order for playback. You can also remotely delete video files stored on the SD card without touching the iDock. Alternatively, you can manually remove the SD card from the iDock and replace it with a blank SD card ready to continue recording.
The maximum SD card capacity that can be used with this product is 32 GB, which will store approx. 16 hours of footage. Using a lower-capacity SD card will store fewer recorded files.
DO I NEED TO BE TECHNICALLY SAVVY TO USE THIS PRODUCT?
Minimal technical skill is required. We provide you with easy-to-follow instructions and first-class customer support.
WILL THE CAMERA RECORD AT NIGHT?
While the camera cannot see in complete darkness, it does have an embedded IR sensor to activate automatically whenever room lighting conditions change, allowing viewing and recording in a shallowly lit room.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE IDOCK IS UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAIN POWER?
The charging functionality or camera cannot operate without power. When the iDock is connected to a power supply, you will have remote control of the iDock again.
