Lest check some reviews, the first one is a very positive, the second one not so much but its good to read it aswell:
By DL It took some it Does the Job Me to find exactly what I needed and fortunately this little gadget fit the bill precisely.
It works exactly as described. It’s early days yet – but it seems to be robust and well made to last a long time.
The short videos it creates are time stamped – which is what I was looking for – and can view something in absolute darkness. The videos are a bit over exposed as they need to be to catch the tiniest of light sources. I don’t intend to do anything Except keep track of animal movements at night – so the videos are just fine for me.
The instructions are clear. But, they tend to assume that the reader is completely aware of what they are referring to. In order to set the time and date stamp (which works very well) you need to create a small .txt file and transfer it into the folder of the camera.
For those confused by this – on a Windows machine (sorry can’t speak to what is needed on Macs, . .) in the ‘Accessories’ folder in the programs of the Start Menu, you should find ‘Notepad’. This is what you would use to create the .txt file with the current date & time. (The text you type in and save is completely spelled out in the instructions, . . .) Once created and saved – you drag and drop it into the camera folder after you have connected the camera to ] your pc. That’s all there is to it.
One note – this may be tripping up some trying to set the time and date – The time that needs to be set is based on a 24 hour clock (which most of the world uses, . .) as opposed to a 12 hour clock that we use in the States. So 5PM is written as 17:00. This may be one of the reasons setting the time hasn’t worked for other.
Lets read the least favorable to make a good justment of this camera:
By Failed Spy Guy The camera works OK as a motion sensor camera, it’s small enough to be hidden in day time, ah but the glowing Infra Red led lights beat the whole purpose of the hidden camera (not hidden anymore) The manual it’s in well explained English, simple and detailed with some graphics to help you understand better the functionality of the device, also what the other guy said about the 5 seconds trigger video it’s TRUE, the manual states 2-3 seconds (Lie) it’s actually 5-6 seconds after the cam has been triggered to record something plus the glowing led lights, let me put it this way. You open the door, Motion sensor detects you right away(in half second IR led lights turn on) that doesn’t mean the cam is recording. you have now 4 seconds to close the door and the camera would record just an empty room for the time you set the camera to record
The camera works Video Quality is good FPS are smooth Audio/Mic is good and clear Trigger time is 5-6 seconds
Customizable settings are just a few: Time recording:30,60,180/s Video Resolution:640*480, 320*240 Video Quality FPS:10,15,30FPS Time/date stamp on video Indicator Green light On/Off while recording Description of the camera on video I guess (in case you have several around the house to see to which camera corresponds selected video)
What it misses in the settings or should’ve been added too: On/Off IR led lights Select # of IR led lights to be activated on triggered cam: 0,1,2,4,6 or the whole 8, (seriously, the 8 IR led lights give great illumination to the night vision camera(more than enough I would say), but they show to the intruder the camera location and what it is at first sight) and that beats the whole purpose of the SPY/HIDDEN camera, This is enough information for you to study and make a decision, one thing for sure, this item will be a great gift for anyone to keep busy for few weeks.
