HD 1080P WiFi Weather Station, Clock Radio Camera
We check this out! Hidden Camera Surveillance has the latest release Clock Radio & Weather Spy Camera with an internal 330-degree remotely rational camera lens. Can you believe it?? Here we have a fully functional clock radio, which not only looks stylish but it has a very discreet and almost fully rotatable (silent and discreet) camera pinhole lens that you control through our free App.
Unlike most other covert devices of this nature, let me say this, what more could you possibly want? Easy to use and packed full of features and functions, super high quality recording, quality selectable motion detection recording including fantastic audio in sync with video, built in WiFi to view the camera and listen to audio LIVE from your mobile phone or PC. Playback recordings stored internally to the concealed and very discreet Micro SD card. Are we ticking all the boxes so far??
So how does it all work? Everyone has a desktop clock radio nowadays so the introduction of new clock radio means out with the old (perhaps pretend the old clock is faulty) and in with the new. Our new HD Desk Clock Camera is small and fully functional. Unlike other similar WiFi Clock Cameras (supplied by HCS) this new model clock will display the Time, Date, Day, Temperature& Humidity. The button on top of the clock is functional as well but this houses the super high-resolution pinhole size camera that won’t be detected, it looks to be part of the clock.
The idea is to use the clock as normal clock to start with and leave the micro SD card out and WiFi inactive for the time being if you have any concerns.
When the time is right, insert a class 10 or better micro SD card into the back of the clock, which can be from16GB up to a massive 128GB capacity, download the free app and when ready activate WiFi
This HD clock radio camera is supplied with an internal rechargeable lithium Ion battery so it will function on its own battery power for 3-4 hours but we also supply a power adapter. So the best option (just like any other clock) is to plug it into power that not only recharges the battery but also will keep the clock and WiFi functional indefinitely.
Please note this is not a permanent security camera and should be used for limited surveillance purposes. When not being used for covert needs, the switch at the back of the clock should be OFF and then switched ON when needed.
Tell me how the WiFi Setup Works?
Setting up this Internet streaming WiFi camera is easy and takes just a few minutes and is done directly from your Iphone or Android smartphone. Simply download the free streaming App on your iPhone or Android and then scan the QR code on the camera. Otherwise wait a few minutes for your phone to locate the WiFi device sitting on the wireless network, select the device, select your home or business WiFi network and you will be live viewing the camera. Once you see the camera live through our free App, the options from that point are huge.
To remotely view your camera from another location, you will need to enter your WiFi user name and password in order to access your router and the camera sitting on the network. Our online Utube video tutorials will show you how. Please note in some cases when sharing WiFi and Internet and you have multi router passwords, you may need to have an IT consultant assist you unless you happen to know the administrator user name and password. In this regard we can only assist you so far with regard to tech support but normally support isn’t needed and pretty much straight forward.
Connect the WiFi HD Clock Radio Cam to a power point somewhere within wireless range your WiFi router. From your mobile phone, press settings and enable WiFi. Wait a few minutes for your router to see the new device online. After that time you should see a long series of numbers appear on your WiFi Network indicating that a new WiFi device has been found.
Download the free App from the App store. Once you see a series of numbers appear on your mobile phone, click the number to tick connect and view the camera live. When you see the camera live on your cell phone this is where it gets really interesting. Users have the option to change the password, enter into motion detection recording mode or continuous recording mode, record at 1080P quality or less (selectable) to an internal memory card, record to your mobile phone memory if preferred, listen into conversations surrounding the camera, receive email alerts if motion is detected, locally or remotely play SD card indexed recordings and so much more.
As the authorised user you may change the password, select your preferred recording speed and quality, upload to FTP, upload to your phone or PC, decide whether to enable motion detection SD card recording or not, playback recordings remotely, select various lighting options, receive an email alert if motion is detected even if it needs to be between certain times. In other words the number of features and functions this camera has is tantamount to having a security Network Video Recorder. The recording schedule can be set to auto arm and auto disarm at times that you choose.
Because the Clock Radio camera is also AC powered (5V Power supply provided) it will stream live 24/7 but you must have WiFi enabled at the clock camera location. Some customers are concerned that if others are sharing WiFi in the home or office, those people will see the camera as well. That’s not the case. Remember you need our App first of all and others won’t have that. The camera is user name and password protected so there is no unauthorised use and apart from all of that, on WiFi the only reference any other person would see is a long series of letters and numbers. There is absolutely no mention whatsoever to anything related to a clock, spy camera or anything of that nature. To others the numbers could be neighbour’s local WiFi so it’s quickly disregarded as nothing and it can’t be accessed anyway.
Once you have the App installed on your phone and you have access to the camera live, it’sat this point that you set the camera to follow your camera menu instructions. There is no setup on the clock radio itself it’s all done from the free mobile phone App.
The recording quality is a super high 1080P real time although the camera can be set a range of lower recording levels and that means more internal memory capacity. The same applies to recording speed, it may be that you don’t necessarily need real time recording (25fps) but would prefer say 12fps, which is about cartoon speed. It’s still very fast and life like but only using memory at half speed thus doubling recording capacity.
What happens when the SD card is full and how long will it last?
Remember your don’t have to use a memory card at all. The authorised user may still view the camera live and be remotely alerted to motion so you can if you like record to your mobile phone or PC but that is using data.
The highest recording level is 1920 x 1080 but that can be adjusted lower if preferred. At the highest recording quality and in real time, it will use about 6GB of memory per hour of recording. Consequently the larger the internal memory the more recording it can save before being filled. As mentioned previously, if you set the camera to slower recording and/or lower the recording quality, this effectively can double or quadruple the recording duration to internal memory.
Often we find a 32GB Class 10 SD card is sufficient (order from HCS online) but remember, you may also set the camera to either STOP recording when the SD card is full or LOOP record which basically means when the SD card is full, slowly start overwriting from the earliest recording date when full. This is also referred to as Recycle Recording.
If constantly recording to a 32GB micro SD card at 1080P quality, the SD card would be full in about 5-6 hours and for that reason we prefer to use the motion detection function. Again you select the MD recording duration once motion is detected and that could be anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes at a time so you won’t miss anything. If there is continual movement there will be continual recording anyway.
Can I be alerted if motion is detected?
Yes of course. The free app will have the option to add an email address to receive alerts and with that alert a picture is attached. Once received you may login to the camera from your mobile phone from anywhere in the world, view the clock camera live and playback recordings from the internal memory card.
Check in on your babysitter, your pets, or keep an eye on your office any time you want, from anywhere in the world
How does it work?
The HD Clock Radio WiFi Spy Camera will power itself on 110-240V household power point so no need to worry about the battery going flat. A covert camera such as this is ideal for short to longer-term surveillance but please understand it's not a substitute for CCTV security. First and foremost its a spy camera and should be treated as such.
The HD 1080P Clock Radio Camera supports a very discreet and hidden 16 to 128GBmicro SD card slot, whichis totally secure even from the most prying of eyes. Don't be concerned about someone finding it because for all intents and purposes its looks just like a clock and is quite real. Memory cards are optional and only needed for recording but if you just want to just live view via WiFi or P2P Internet, perhaps the memory card isn’t needed. We normally supply optional Class 10 or better SD card from 8-32GB and available online at the time of purchase although if you want a larger 64GB or 128GB SD card, just call our office prior to ordering online.
If you supply your own micro SD card then you also need to take responsibility. We don’t take any responsibility for non-compliant memory cards, as we have no way of knowing whether all SD cards are actually camera compatible. The idea is to stay with what you know. Memory cards must be above a certain class to function correctly at 1080P HD resolution.
