This Air Freshener is fitted with a discreet pinhole high definition spy camera, high capacity digital recording system and has a long battery life as standard. Designed and made by us for room surveillance, it is a superb choice for covert room video monitoring.
The Air Freshener Camera DVR - HD system is an excellent choice as an easily deployable battery powered self-contained spy camera and recording system. This unit can be used in the home or office. Position on a shelf in the living room, the bedroom or maybe in the office on the desk to record superbly clear video footage (with audio) whilst you are away. It is often used as a Nanny Cam.
The front panel of the air freshener video camera incorporates a tiny pinhole spy camera positioned to view the environment in front of the unit. The camera is so well concealed that it really is difficult to make out the location of the lens within the front grille. The 32GB or optional 64GB (select from drop-down menu) digital video recording system is cleverly incorporated within the body of the air freshener unit, where the rechargeable 5200 mAh Lithium battery that powers the device is also concealed from view.
The battery, when fully charged, can power the unit for a straight recording time of up to 30 hours, however the motion activation system will assist much longer deployment times of 2 to 3 days when placed in an area with much lower activity in front of the camera. When activated the system with record for the period that there is movement within view of the camera. Recording of footage will autosave after 10 minutes and then another recorded file with commence with no gap. Recording in sections like this reduces the chance of a file being corrupted and therefore makes the system more reliable. This internal battery can be recharged using the supplied USB charging lead via computer or the mains power supply.
The incorporated digital memory recording system provides a video recording resolution of 1280 x 720 at 20 frames per second. The product is supplied with a 32GB of memory as standard capacity and with 2GB of memory being used per hour of covert recording, the total storage will be just over 16 hours of actual video recording (32 hours on 64GB optional model). This means that unless the Air Freshener is placed in an environment where there is movement all of the time, there should be ample memory capacity before the battery expires.
After a deployment, playback of recorded video (with audio) requires the Air Freshener DVR to be connected to a computer (with speakers) using the supplied USB cable. The recorded footage can be easily viewed and stored at a later time on any Windows computer or on a Mac that has VLC media player. No special software is required.
The system is supplied with a small magnet for switching the unit on and off, a USB cable and a USB to Mains charger. A very discreet LED confirming mode status can be viewed through an window in the black casing that houses the camera unit inside the air freshener. No LED stays illuminated when in record mode and there are no sounds or any other giveaway signs that the air freshener is anything other than a standard model. Manufactured in the UK.
