Is it any good? Normal price is quite high. What about picture quality?

I would take no notice of rrp price or expect too much picture let alone quality. Unless u have no walls in between the camera and receiver it'll be poor at best. But considering everything made now currently interferes with the 2.5ghz bandwidth I'd be surprised if you got a picture from it at all. Maybe just a half decent spot light for the money

Ordered one too, also ordered an led replacement bulb for it F%$£ the planet, just trying to save money

I think camera is not on right place, look at the camera angle !

If only this was an IP camera...without the light.

Anyone know of a cheapish IP camera?

If it was up to date, wireless would connect to your home wireless network with an IP address. Really is old tech.

Does anyone know of a good forum for advice on setting up a home security system for a novice? I want a CCTV setup on each wall of my house (Semi detached).
Thanks in advance. :-)

I use an old HTC Desire, mounted on the inside of garage facia board so it stays dry, the lense looks out onto the drive and rear of my house through a hole I drilled about 1cm in diameter and all powered from a USB extension into the garage electrics. A SECuRET (£2.99) app runs the whole thing, colour or B&W, excellent motion detection, captures and emails me stills or multiple bursts or video with the phone linked to the house WiFi. I'm on the lookout for cheap Android phones new or used to expand coverage to the entire external area. The beauty of the system is that no recording device is needed, all footage is emailed to accounts set up for the purpose and even if it was stolen it'd photograph the thief and email me his picture. It's set up next to a PIR floodlight so even works at night when the light turns of after sensing movement. It is so simple, provides amazing quality and I can see what's happening at home even when at work, on holiday or anywhere I can access Gmail.

I have been looking at these:

Seem decent for the price...

Anyone know how long the power cable is? Also, I would plan to rig this up to an old TV with coaxial connection. Is this suitable?

Concern for me would be lack of actual usage photos or video, plenty of device but none of it in action

Should have a three year guarantee with it. That is there usual period of guarantee. Shame it won't tell you what the cameras like.

Just ordered so will wait n see if its any good

Anyone know if this can be set up to send emails on motion detection?

Tempted but without seeing it working its a gamble. Would prefer wired instead of 2.5ghz wireless

That's a nice idea.
Don't suppose you have a sample image?

I've got loads of images but they won't help in deciding if the setup is right for you. Image quality is simply as good or bad as the smartphone camera can snap, in the app settings you can choose full colour/b&w high res or reduce the image size which is what I've done. I'm running b&w images at only 800x400 which provides excellent facial identification at up to 25ft, the distance to a rear door. I ran full colour maximum resolution at first but the image size was large and it slowed down the emailing process, the app has the option of saving the images to internal storage or sending them to Dropbox so there is a lot of flexibility about how and where you want the data sending.
You can adjust sensitivity of the motion detection and actually watch it rendering movement before it decides to take a picture, I had to make fine adjustments to 'dial out' a tree which triggered the camera in the wind but it still picks up birds in flight ! and I know exactly what time the post/parcel man comes everyday.
If you have an old smartphone and want to tinker it's the best £2.99 you'll spend, just make sure you do a factory reset, set up new Gmail accounts for the phone to send/receive images and on older phones running 2.2 2.3 etc the App won't do two step Gmail passwords, finally some older phones don't have much internal memory so keep the phone free of apps and use a memory manager to keep if running sweet, when it starts to recognise and render movement on the screen it looks like something from Minority Report and I suspect it's using maximum ram and cpu.

That's a great setup - one to bookmark!

Great Deal, ordered, many thanks

nice one, ordered

Ok, so what's a cheap recorder for this? Can I use an old PC?

I brought the shop sorry guys

I brought the shop sorry guys


Where did you bring it to?

It's how I roll lump it or like it

Tip-- for those that have bought this make sure the bottom is tight (turn clockwise) or water will get past the seal and fill up the pir then it will fail as mine did. Had the one without camera and was very good till it failed.
Tip 2-- don't mount to high think about 8ft was best for these.
Ordered one thanks headco

That's a great idea, thanks for sharing. I recently bought some IP cameras for indoor use and considered making a weatherproof housing for one of them, maybe your solution would be a good alternative.

RRP Can it be rip off price ? I would take no notice of rrp price
