- Covert Cameras
Hidden Cameras Monitor Multiple Locations
If you want the next evolution of covert camera recording, we have the perfect solution - the Zone Shield system. The Zone Shield Faux-Plant will blend seamlessly into the decor of any room without tipping occupants off to the fact that it has a built-in hidden camera. It will transmit wirelessly to an (included) QUAD receiver that can be connected to a computer via USB, or TV via RCA cable for viewing and recording; optionally recording can be done locally to an SD Card. The QUAD receiver handles up to four cameras, and we have included an additional camera in this kit, the Zone Shield Rectangle Mantel Clock, a fully functioning, free-standing analog clock will blend into any room for discreet surveillance.
What makes this system really great is that users can remotely view video from a smartphone or tablet by downloading an app for mobile devices in either the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. It also comes with remote viewing software that will allow for video to be watched remotely from a weblink through Chrome, or Internet Explorer.
- 4 Cameras + DVR
