Essential Info

Set up a security camera in your home or business without having to run wires across the building! With the Wireless Floodlight Camera, installing a surveillance system is as easy as replacing a light bulb! Just screw this wireless black & white camera into any wall or ceiling light fixture, plug the included decoder into an AC outlet, and connect it to any TV or VCR, and you'll be able to watch a live surveillance video feed instantly! The video signals are transmitted over the building's existing electrical wires, so there's no complex wiring required! Installation takes less than a minute! And because the unit requires no additional wires, it's totally portable, allowing you to use it at multiple sites. Bring it from your residence to your vacation home with ease!

The black & white camera transmits through a single circuit breaker box. If you're an X10 home automation user, the camera transmission process won't interfere with X10 signals, allowing you to use your powerline automation system just as you normally would. The camera is equipped with infrared emitters, which illuminate the viewing area without being visible to the human eye. This feature allows you to monitor a 15' x 30' area at 0 lux — great for capturing images at night! Other features include a high 420-line resolution, an 80° field of view and a focal range of 6 inches to optical infinity in daylight. The system transmits video only, and can only support one camera per home. Please note that this camera does not function as a working light bulb.

    Extremely easy set up. Quality was good. Malfunctioned within first 24 hours. SH promply replaced. Hoping for a second one that is more dependable. Chuck
    SIRJERRY -- paso robles, CA   8/14/2009
    I ordered the item and recieved it within the seven day period.
    DIRK -- albany, OR   7/27/2008
    Bought item as a replacement...the new item did not work as well as the previous due to intereference of some kind. The quality of this item is too unstable for me to risk buying again.
    HARLON -- elizabeth city, NC   11/22/2007
    Had to send the first one back due to no IR lighting. It also had a bit of scrolling interference. The second one worked as advertized. The IR is a little too weak to be effective. Still like the clever idea of the bulb cam.
    REAL -- mascouche, QC   10/26/2007
    a higher resolution camera would be much better even if more expensive
    NEWMAN -- durham, NC   7/30/2007
    Product was not satisfactory. The resolution was poor and the image was awful. Also, the device would turn off and never turn on with the motion sensor.
    ROBERT -- azle, TX   10/9/2005
    Very cool site. Wonderful that you are adding things constantly. Keeps me coming back!
    THOMAS W -- bayside, NY   9/19/2005
    Excellent product as expected.
    ALVIN -- san francisco, CA   9/9/2005
    Came in good condition. Was happy with the product. thank you.
    LINDA M -- bel plaine, MN   4/27/2005
    It works great for us and on March 22nd it actually helped save the life of our mare, Debbie and her new son, Doc. With this camera we are able to view the mares without interupting them during foaling, which is very important. Your staff has always been pleasant and very easy to work with. Thank you!
    RUTH -- ft. worth, TX   4/7/2005
    Works well
    BRUCE -- floral park, NY   3/24/2005

    Great covert B/W surveilance camera. Works great in well lit area but built in IR emitters don't provide clear image in the dark. I also found that the image quality varies from outlet to outlet around the house. This might be due to camera and receiver being on a different leg of the 3-phase power.

    picture quality is very poor; otherwise, the technology (wireless plug-in) is very easy to use.
    KEN -- sunbury, OH   5/30/2004
    Product has delivered better performance than I would have thought being a B&W camera. Connection to my ouw power system did have some noticeable feedback I.E lines on the screen. but when connected at the final location the picture was incredibly clean. I would need some assitsance in finding where interference is coming from in my needs and would also need to be able to connect multiple signal devices through the power system. Two thumbs up from this customer!!
    LINDA -- east patchogue, NY   5/12/2004
    WE installed he floodlight camera in a highhat over our outside door. I cannot believe the clarity nor the angle of vision (80%) that this camera delivers. One thing though, tell people not to plug the decoder into a surge suppressor, it doesn't work well. Love the product!!
    KEN -- galena, OH   4/13/2004
    The product ordered did have some static when connected to my own electrical system. However the customer who I puchaced this item for has a wonderful picture. I was scared to purchase this item since I had tried a homeplug and similar product for home networking, they simply did not work. After seeing the static on the screen with the camera kit I figure I do have some sort of interference on my electrical system. However I will promote your products to my customers since seeing the results on a "clean" system. Thank you Ken K.
