Essential Info

There are numerous wireless cameras on the market, but while they do transmit to receivers wirelessly, they still need to be plugged in to an electrical outlet for power. But the 2.4GHz Solar Color PIR Camera & Receiver is a truly wireless camera, receiving all of its required energy from the sun. With no wires to run, this camera installs easily, providing security and convenience in a simple, economical manner.


What's Included

  • Solar camera
  • A/V receiver
  • 3-foot RCA cable
  • 6-volt rechargeable battery
  • 9-volt battery
  • Power adapter
  • Mounting materials
  • Manual
  • More Info

    When the camera's PIR motion sensor detects motion, images and voices are transmitted. Upon receiving these signals, the receiver beeps twice, and the LED flashes for one minute, so you'll know when to record or to view on your TV or monitor. The actual transmission time is adjustable for 10, 20, 30 or 40 seconds, but the camera will continue to transmit as long as the PIR sensor is triggered.

    The 2.4GHz Solar Color PIR Camera's solar panel uses the sun's rays to run and maintain a charge to the camera battery during daylight hours. A negligible amount of energy is released by the long-life rechargeable battery to operate the camera at night. While the camera will work after sunset, it requires a minimum light of 3 Lux to capture images.

    Mount the camera in any convenient location that gets ample direct sunlight. You can adjust the camera's view angle in any direction, and the PIR motion sensor will sense movement up to 6 feet away. Connect a time-lapse VCR (sold separately) for constant image capturing, ideal for when you're away from home.

    Please note: This camera and receiver operate @ 2.4 Ghz - the same frequency band that Wi-Fi networks and cordless phones populate. You may experience some interference if you are using a 802.11 wi-fi network or 2.4 Ghz cordless phones in conjunction with this product. Audio range of the microphone is effective within 6 feet. Audio quality will deteriorate beyond that distance.

    wish the angle can be wider, but very good image. Thanks.
    ALAN -- thunder bay, ON   2/24/2008
    solar panel should be adjustable.your to limited the way it is.
    SHALOM -- phoenix, AZ   1/8/2008
    Would be a much better product if it worked in conjunction with a WiFi network instead of interfering with the WiFi network. Otherwise, it meets expectations.
    ALAN -- tobyhanna, PA   1/3/2008
    Product did not meet my expectation for my application. Unless power is supplied continuously by an AC adapter the Camera will time out at 40 sec max until triggered again by the PIR sensor. However...the PIR sensor sensitivity range is pretty poor somewhere between 3 to 6 feet.
    JUSTIN -- dripping springs, TX   10/23/2007
    GERALD -- sandy, OR   9/12/2007
    Works well but the range on the PIR sensor is only 24ft so the subject needs to be almost on top of the camera for it to turn on. Would be nice if there were a way to bypass the PIR sensor and have the camera on all the time...
    RON -- leesburg, FL   9/8/2007
    The installation was very easy but surprisingly the picture quality was terrible. The range it had to transmit was about 25 feet but the reception was completely unusable. I was surprised because most of your products are of such high quality usually.
    GEORGE -- fairfield, PA   7/26/2007
    Have not hooked it up as of yet
    WAYSON -- honolulu, HI   7/7/2007
    Product does not work as described. Difficult to setup and does not function except when very close to receiver even when fully charged.
    LONNIE -- phoenix, AZ   6/24/2007
    Haven't mounted it yet, but the manual shows an interface device to a vcr, only to find out that the device is not available. The camera is somewhat useless without the ability to record the motion detected movement.
    JAMES -- livingston, TX   6/20/2007
    Camera system is well constructed and provides an excellent wireless picture. My camera is mounted close to 100 feet from the receiver.
    Solar Camera -- CA   6/12/2007
    I'm a bit disappointed that this camera only stays on when the PIR sensor is activated. In the future hopefully someone will develop a camera just like this that you can remotely turn on and off so you don't waste the battery. Amazing product for what it is.
    MOHAMED -- boston, MA   4/15/2007
    RONALD -- fresh meadows, NY   4/22/2006
    For the most part I'm very satisfied with the product. I would however have liked for the solar panel to have been sufficiently detachabe so as to be able to aim it into different directions to accommmodate the direction of sunrise or fall.
