In this day and age, we have the ability to know everything that’s going on in our lives, even when you’re not there. With the advent of the surveillance camera, we have become privy to whats happening in our streets and shops, or even what our kids are up to while they’re at pre-school. Parking lots, airports, the grocery store, somebody is always watching us. It got me to wondering, whats going on in my house when I’m not home.
Not that I don’t trust my husband, but I know I’m not the only one who wonders whats going on when I’m not looking, so in order to “catch” my husband telling people on the phone how wonderful I am, or walking around the house muttering to himself how much he misses me while hugging my pillow (hey, it’s my story, I’ll tell it the way I want to!) I’m thinking about the Video Surveillance Clock.This small (2 3/4″ Diam. x 3/4″ D ) analog clock has a built-in, motion-activated video surveillance camera that records both audio and video and takes photographs too, it’s just perfect for checking out the action in a room or office.
The image sensor captures 720 x 480 resolution video in a 62º angle from nine feet away while its sensitive microphone picks up sound from 16′ away. It can also take photographs at 1,280 x 960 resolution.
Included is a 4 GB microSD card that will store up to six hours of AVI video or 52,000 JPG images, it also supports up to an 8 GB microSD card. You can download all the heartwarming content you want to your computer and its rechargeable lithium battery is recharged via USB port and included cable. Compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP, and Mac. At the very least I’ll find out how the cat keeps turning on the water in the kitchen.
