A feature rich, robust camera

It is rare to get the sharpness and clarity with rich colour and clear night vision. The camera is fairly small and can be placed in the smallest of places.

How does it work

The camera kit is really easy to use. All you do is:

  1. Place the camera in the garden
  2. Run the cable to your router.
  3. Plug the other end of the cable into the power supply (Injector)
  4. Plug the short cable from the power supply to your router.
  5. Once connected to your router you will be able to access on your tablet or your phone (After downloading an app)

How IP cameras connect

If you want to make it wireless, you can either go for the wifi extender or use data over mains (Powerline/homeplug). Select from the options.

Wired, WIFI over mains or WIFI extender

The kit comes with a cable you simply plug into your router. If your router is in another room around the house you may opt for WIFI over mains or WIFI extender. Here is how they work.

Wired option (Default)

The camera is connected to a power supply (POE) and then to your router.

HD IP camera wired setup

WIFI over mains option (Upgrade option above)

The camera connects to a mains adapter in your shed/garage. You then put another adapter next to your router. It simply sends the data along the mains in your house to your router. This is 100% safe as all it is doing is pulsing a data signal along your mains cable. How cool is that?

Recording option with TV connection too (Upgrade option above)

Once the camera is connected you will be able to access it on your phone, tablet. The FREE app allows you to manually record standard resolution video. If you want to be able to record 24/7 at high resolution without needing to be around. ie film barn owls where all the activity is at night, what you need is a recorder or NVR (Network Video Recorder). The recorder has huge benefits:

  Records 24/7 so don’t miss any action
  Highlights when there is motion in front of the camera
  Records up 4 cameras 24/7
  Accessible on your app, to playback, review
  Export high quality footage to share with family and friends
  Connection to your TV
