When deciding on a covert room surveillance camera system there is usually a decision to be made between the desire for remote ‘live’ viewing and the ability to record events for watching at a later time. This stylish fully-functional digital radio is installed with an amazing wireless Internet camera that can meet both requirements. Ideal to use in a variety of scenarios, many have deployed this product as a Nanny Cam.
Perfectly suited for use at home or in the office this WiFi motion-activated video surveillance camera (with sound), after set-up, does not require to be hard-wired to an Ethernet port or to the WiFi Router. This means that after the very quick and easy setup procedure this PURE DAB radio can be placed in a location of your choice as long as it is within the broadcast area of the WiFi network to which it has been configured. Getting started really is quite simple. NO specialist technical knowledge is required and easy-to-follow instructions should get your camera unit up and running in less than ten minutes. All you will need is a live mains power outlet at the location where you wish to position the camera system.
Do not confuse this class-leading IP camera unit with other devices giving lower quality imagery or with inferior capability. Many other systems on offer will provide pixelated video imagery and the majority will only allow you to remotely view what the camera is seeing within the bounds of the same WiFi signal, which usually means that you can remotely view from the next room or the next floor, but that really is about it. Our WiFi cameras produce excellent video quality (with audio) and can be remotely viewed from computer or Smartphone many thousands of miles away if desired (Internet connection needed for the receiving device). Through-the-lens motion detection video recordings can store onto the internal 32GB flash memory storage, remote computer hard drive or to dropbox account (request set up).
The camera is installed in a position facing out of the front grille of the radio in a natural position to overlook the room environment. The camera lens is skilfully positioned and installed so as not to be easily visible to the human eye even under close examination. The complete spy camera system is cleverly secreted within the body of the radio with no external signs that would giveaway the fact that a video surveillance system is within. There are no sounds or flashing lights that would alert attention, so nobody should ever become suspicious. The movement triggers can be programmed to send an email alert (requires set-up and a valid email address).
The remote viewing console is very easy to use and the software we supply is simple to install on a Windows or Mac computer. On the computer remote setup can be changed such as setting up motion activated recording (requires Windows PC or smartphone to change the settings). This WiFi camera can be remotely viewed from an iPhone or Android phone. Remotely view ‘live’ and record using these smartphones. treamed video footage from the WiFi camera can be automatically stored on a pre-determined PC within the same WiFi network as the camera or the 32GB internal flash memory storage inside the device. This means the amount of video storage is only restricted by the capacity of the hard-drive on that computer or the 32GB of built in memory.
We can now supply the DAB Radio with LED low light infrared illuminators discreetly built into the front facia of the radio. The 940nm LED's operate on a frequency whereby they are not visible to the human eye, so although the infrared lights will illuminate the area in front of the radio in low light or complete darkness, nobody will ever notice. The camera system will still function as normal in the datytime as well, although in bright sunlight there maybe a slight pink tinge on some objects because of the lens setup required to accomodate the LED lights. This does not mean a lower level of quality from the video footage, merely a slight discolouration under very bright natural light conditions. If you wish to purchase the infrared verion of this product, then please select this from the drop-down menu (cost extra).
Can more that one camera be received and recorded at any one time?
Yes, a number of WiFi cameras can be set up to feed to the same remote viewing console on your computer.

No, this is almost a ‘plug and play’ solution. It is easy to install and set up. No technical expertise is required.
Can I use the WiFi camera worldwide?
