WiFi Smart Battery Security Camera
WiFi Smart Battery Security Camera is supplied with 2 x lithium Ion rechargeable batteries including a USB charging lead and a 5V power adapter. What does this mean? It means the camera can be mounted basically anywhere indoors or out provided it’s within range of you home WiFi router. No need for base Station!! The batteries are so powerful that you can expect 3-6 months of use before the batteries need a recharge. If you happen to have power near the camera then connect to power if you like but again, what’s the point
WiFi Smart Battery Security Camera
Home Security cameras are certainly making huge advances and this new and very powerful battery operated 1080P WiFi Security camera is no exception. It’s therefore so very important to understand the differences between this camera and the rest.
Owners of other similar WiFi security cameras will normally require a monthly or annual CLOUD STORAGE FEE and that cost will vary depending on usage. Other similar cameras may also require a base station of some sort to communicate with the cameras plus so called Ad-Ons. Seriously, don’t waste your money it’s unnecessary.
If you have WiFi at your home or office etc (most of us do anyway) our WiFi Security cameras don’t require a base station. All you need is our FREE App. Each camera is battery and/or 5V powered but the dual rechargeable lithium Ion batteries can keep the cameras fully functional day and night for up to 6 months. No Cloud fees as all motion activated recordings are stored to an internal micro SD memory card. Live view, be alerted to motion and remotely playback camera recordings using your mobile phone from anywhere. Use Cloud recording if preferred but do be aware of remote storage costs charged by others.
How does it work?
It’s not rocket science and it’s very simple indeed. Each camera is supplied with 2 x lithium Ion rechargeable batteries including a USB charging lead and a 5V power adapter. What does this mean? It means the camera can be mounted basically anywhere indoors or out provided it’s within range of you home WiFi router. No need for base Station!! The batteries are so powerful that you can expect 3-6 months of use before the batteries need a recharge. If you happen to have power near the camera then connect to power if you like but again, what’s the point.
Supplied with each camera are 2 mounting brackets. One can be screwed into any flat surface if that’s your preference and the camera angle adjusted to any direction. There is however a much easier method. See the camera and bracket images below noting the semi round bracket. This bracket can be fixed to any surface (even glass if you like) but the bracket has a strong internal magnet. The back of the camera also has a magnet and when joined…. it’s strong! As the bracket is semi round in shape it allows the magnetised camera to be rotated and tilted in any direction. To recharge the camera batteries (camera App will let you know when charge is needed) there’s no need to remove the batteries. Just pull the camera away from the magnetised bracket, connect the camera to PC USB or our supplied 5V power supply, leave it on charge for a few hours (its still functional and online) and there you go…ready to remount.
Is it difficult to Setup?
Let’s assume that yes you know you’re router password. Download our free App for Iphone or Android as the WiFi camera supports both. Furthermore you’re not limited to camera numbers either, have as many security WiFi cameras as you need.
Slot a Class 10 or better 32 or 64GB SD card into the camera (or don’t) then switch the camera on. Select WiFi on your phone and if you wait a minute or so, you will see a series of numbers appear called the UID. Your WiFi router can see the new camera UID in P2P mode. In other words, even if you don’t know your WiFi password, using the free App you will still see the camera/s LIVE. You now have local remote access (P2P) to all camera features and functions including the SD memory card recordings and menu settings.
Many customers ask how to view the camera/s if not at home or office? The camera menu will read WiFi setup. Enter your WiFi password. The camera will then reboot itself. Log into the camera from any other WiFi hot spot to see the camera live (same as P2P mode) however it’s not necessary to be in another WiFi Zone to view your camera/s. Use your phone 3/4G mobile to access the cameras from anywhere regardless of WiFi. View your cameras live but do be careful if using 3/4G data not to exceed data limits. WiFi is better from that point of view but if you have plenty of phone data available, nothing to be afraid of.
Look at your cameras live, remotely playback recordings; even be alerted with an email or mobile push notification if motion is detected. By using mobile phone push and/or email notifications, there’s no need to constantly check for movement because the camera App will notify you the moment motion is detected and recorded. Furthermore, there are no alert text costs as it’s WiFi data rather than cellular.
Can the Camera see and record at night?
Absolutely. By night or in low light, WiFi Battery Cam will change from colour to B/W Mode. The Infra Red (IR) is not permanently active however, if motion is detected, this will arm the IR and enable very clear night vision recording. All recordings are time and date stamped as well.
By day or in more bright light the camera will revert to brilliant and super high-resolution 1080P video colour mode. Save SD card recordings to you’re mobile phones if you like.
Can I mount the camera in a NON WiFi Zone and still record?
Absolutely. You need WiFi to setup the camera and to live view however, if the camera is already pre-set, simply move the camera to any other location regardless of whether WiFi is available or not. The camera will still record any motion it senses day or night to the internal SD memory card.
Obviously you won’t be able to live view the camera or remotely playback recordings as the camera is now no longer in a WiFi zone but that doesn’t matter. Take the camera home where it will auto find WiFi again and playback recordings direct from your phone or PC.
The other option is to remove the SD card at some point and playback recordings stored to the internal SD card memory. It might be a slight inconvenience to have no live view, no motion alerts and no remote access to recordings but the camera is still doing its job.
Its small, very easily hidden, huge battery capacity so it really makes for an ideal covert of hidden camera as well, no matter where its placed or hidden.
Tell me more
This special WiFi Security camera has a built in microphone and speaker. Authorized user/s may actually have a two way conversation so if someone were to turn up at your front door, perhaps a courier, not only would that courier be recorded, you will receive a phone push notification with a picture attached but by opening the audio icon in the App, listen in or talk both ways. It’s brilliant and all part of the package.
Watch your home or business no matter where you are. Once your system is up and running, use the free App to live-stream video, receive notifications whenever movement is detected, create a surveillance schedule or add more cameras to your setup as needed.

How long will the batteries last before needing recharge?
It could be anywhere from a few months up to 6 months or more depending on how many activations the camera receives, how often you login to the camera to live view or playback recording, how often the camera records by night as IR uses a little more power, motion recording duration and recording quality etc. In other words there are many factors that can affect battery capacity but don’t be concerned, you will see battery level when logging in.
Based on around 6-10 motion activations per day expect 3-5 months from one battery charge. No need for any wiring with our WiFi Cameras.
What happens when the SD memory card is full?
The App menu allows users to select whether to STOP recording when full or Recycle (Loop) record meaning when the SD card is full, it will auto revert to the earliest recording date and slowly commence overwriting from the earliest recorded date. It will do that over and over again until you stay stop. Recording resolution, recording speed and recording duration (15/30/45 seconds) can all be set but the longer the duration or the higher the quality, the faster it uses memory.
