From the Manufacturer

PHOENIX1 Overview

The PHOENIX1 is an easy to use, wire free, color handheld monitoring system which can be used indoors or outdoors to keep your family and belongings safe and secure. The camera sends audio and video wirelessly to the handheld monitor, which has a 2.5-inch color LCD screen for crystal clear viewing of your camera's video without need for any wiring. To protect your privacy and avoid interference, the PHOENIX1 wirelessly transmits both audio and video on a different frequency than the standardized 2.4gHz, allowing you to view your video without worry of interference or interception. The small but powerful camera features automatically activating night vision which helps you see clearly at night and in dark situations. Keep watch over your belongings and loved ones without a bulky system or wiring with the PHOENIX1!

PHOENIX1 Highlights

Avoid Interference & Interception with Clear Signal Technology

The PHOENIX1's Clear Signal Technology is an answer to many other monitoring systems that experience interference from other wireless signals. With the growing popularity of wireless devices brings interference issues and concerns over interception and privacy. This system transmits audio and video on a 900mHz frequency, creating a clear picture which will not interfere with any of the standardized 2.4gHz wireless networks, devices, and access points within your home or business. Both audio and video signals are able to pass through floors and walls within the 75 foot optimum range.

Completely Wire Free Surveillance

The PHOENIX1 is as portable and versatile as you need it to be. Because the system's camera transmits its audio and video signals over the 900mHz frequency, there is no need to hook any wires from the camera to the monitor. The monitor is powered by a built-in rechargeable lithium battery and the camera is capable of running on battery power, making this system able to operate completely wire free. This way you can carry the LCD monitor with you as you move from your office to warehouse, or move the camera from room to room as your children play. The versatile PHOENIX1 gives you the ability to monitor your valuables or loved ones, no matter how much they move!

Continuous Security -- Day or Night!

With the PHOENIX1 you don't have to worry about what you've been missing at night once you're inside for the evening or send your children to bed. This camera comes equipped with night vision, which allows you to see when the area you're monitoring is dark. Twelve infrared LEDs activate automatically on the camera when it becomes dark and deactivate during the day to save energy. With the PHOENIX1 you will always be able to see what is happening in your home or business.

Audio Support

This system includes audio support to help you effectively survey your children with more than just video. The camera has a built-in microphone that lets you hear everything that's happening in your monitoring location. This way you will be able to tell the difference between conversations and sounds of distress. Another safety characteristic of the PHOENIX1 is the audible alarm feature. You simply set the monitor to alert you with an audible beep when it detects sound above an adjustable preset level. This way you can decide whether you want to be alerted by a wail or a whisper. If two cameras are connected and sound is detected, the handheld monitor will automatically display live video feed from where the sound is active. The alarm can be disabled entirely, if desired.

Durable Camera for Indoor or Outdoor Use

If knowing what is going on outside of your home or business is important to you, the PHOENIX1 can help you achieve peace of mind. The discreet camera is built with durable aluminum and designed to function in both indoor and outdoor situations without deterioration or rusting. The camera meets IP54 standards for safe outdoor use. This makes the PHOENIX1 camera incredibly versatile and practical for convenience stores, parking lots, apartments, entrances, and many other places.

Fast and Easy to Use

This system is extremely user-friendly and you can have it up and running in a matter of minutes with no need to hire a professional installer. It's as easy as turning on the handheld monitor and placing the camera in the area you wish to monitor.

Easily Connects to Your TV for Larger Viewing

The PHOENIX1 easily connects to your TV or monitor with the included RCA wire. Allow the PHOENIX1 to be the eyes and ears of your property with the system's audio and video transmission. Simply connect the receiver to a VCR or DVR for recording and you will be able to see what the cameras see when you aren't at home. With the PHOENIX1 you no longer need to wonder what you've been missing.

I really wanted this system to work. I read all of the reviews and everything seemed great accept for the wireless range. After setting up the system (w/additions camera), all looked great. Setup was easy and directions were clear. The night viewing range was good and the reception range was better than I expected. Initially I was very happy, but after a few days of use I noticed issues with the picture. One camera showed a clear picture while the over was almost completely washed out and at night showed very blurry. And a day after rain or snow, both camera were fogged for a few days. No big deal I thought, I just have a defective camera(s). Unfortunately after replacing the one bad camera, the second camera was now washed out and barely visible. So I figure lets give it one last try and replace the second camera and LCD receiver. Again, same issues. Bad picture on one camera and perfect picture on the other. I finally gave up and returned everything to amazon. Now I'm back to square one.

So far everything works well. I opened up the box and plugged in the camera. I then walked all the way around my house and it worked well. Yes there was a little fuz and static but nothing major. My main concerns were that my existing wireless devices would interfear. (Wireless internet, Wireless phones 6.0 Panasonic, and a wireless video transmiter 5.8) So far nothing seems to be interfearing with this camera. The picture quality is good and it seems to be well built.

I read the reviws for the other SVAT camera system that says you have to plug in the monitor behind the batteries and that it uses AAA Batteries. I thought I would try this camera because it has a rechargable batery and a base that you can set the monitor in while it charges.

I am very happy with my purchase. My expectations were really high but this thing does work well. So that is why I am taking the time to type this review so others can rest assured that this camera is,in my opnion a great deal.

Update: March 2011 - This was a great product while it lasted. 16 months after purchase, the Camera went dead. It was great while we had it, but the camera seems to be sensitive to humidity and outside temperatures.

We bought this for one specific purpose. To see who is at the front door. Our porch is situated such that you can not see who is at the door from any window.

Our other Electronic Devices: Wireless Internet and Cordless Phones. No issues with the camera/monitor or our other devices. Both the wireless and phones are 5.8Mhz which may be the reason we had no issue.

Setup: I had the camera on a nail above the door in 5 minutes. Briefly skimmed the manual and we were off. We tested for a couple of weeks both in daylight and night to get the placement right. Note: If you are buying strictly for night vision...don't. It doesn't work more than a couple of feet. Our porch has a motion detection light in the ceiling so this works perfectly with the camera. We have tried the monitor sitting in the cradle, walking around the house and connected to the tv.

Results: On our first test, my wife loved it. She was able to clearly see who was knocking. The range is pretty small and it does degrade rapidly with walls and doors between. Our setup is basically 20 feet from the camera through the front door and outside wall. Moving to a back room with 2 inside walls produced quite a bit of interference...we could see but the image would flake out every few seconds. We also do not use the sound activation since the camera is outside it picks up any noise on the lowest settings...

For the price and ease of use...it fits our needs perfectly. It really depends on how you plan to use it, if it will work for you or not. If you need long range or strict night vision...this is definately not the system for you.

I selected this system as it operates at 900 mhz frequency to avoid interference with the WiFi internet at the house and the wireless alarm sensors. After charging the monitor for a few hours, I powered up the camera and it works fine. Good wall penetration with this system - I have walked around 90 feet from the camera with the monitor and the picture is still viewable. The audio is pretty sensitive as well. The night vision is adequate for a short distance, probably 10 - 15 feet in total darkness maximum - fine if you have the camera mounted near the door and want to see who is there. The night vision range could be further extended with the use of an additional infrared illuminator, however the resolution of the camera is not really adequate for a distance shot. The camera is housed in a metal enclosure and seems high quality. The handheld monitor unit is plastic and acceptable quality. The built in lithium battery does not seem to be user-replaceable. I have not opened the device to see if it is soldered into place, but I suspect that it could be changed with a little tech savvy. The unit will probably operate from the supplied ac adaptor even after the battery fails. Overall, the system is a bargain and I recommend it.

We use the product with 2 cameras. We needed something that would allow us to have some visibility of the front door and driveway when we were in a location of the house without front windows. This product allows us to quickly and easily view without going to the front of the house. If exterior lights are on the night view is pretty good, otherwise it is about 8 to 10 feet from the camera with the night vision. We have the monitor set up to the TV to enlarge the view. Based on weather and other external factors the picture may be fuzzy at times...but definately clear enough for what view is needed. We are very pleased with the purchase and would recomend.
