Product Description

Product Description

Using motion activated recording settings, the Defender STEALTH1 Covert DVR/Motion Detector allows you to watch over your home or business’ valuables by detecting movements and recording them. Its covert DVR with built-in color camera even enables you to place it strategically without anybody noticing it. This awesome security system includes a 2GB SD card where you can store recorded footage.

From the Manufacturer


STEALTH1 Overview

The STEALTH1 is an easy to use, covert DVR system that can be used wirelessly to secure your business or home. It is ideal for monitoring your office, home, employees, loved ones, and valuables. The unit is disguised as a motion sensor and includes both a DVR and pinhole camera. Record MPEG-4 video directly to the included 2GB SD card. Supervise your business or home completely undetected with the STEALTH1 and always be aware of what is happening, even after-hours.

STEALTH1 Highlights

Fast and Easy Setup with Auto-Resume Recording

This system is extremely user-friendly and you can have it up and running in a matter of minutes because everything is truly plug and play. Auto-start recording ensures that the STEALTH1 automatically begins recording video when it is powered on and resumes recording after any power loss.

Completely Wire Free Monitoring

You have the option of powering the camera with AA batteries for wireless use. Get up to 17 hours of use in standby mode or 12 hours when continuously recording (lithium batteries recommended and not included). An AC power adapter is also included for long-term use.

45 Days of Recording with Included 2GB SD Card

Capture high quality digital video and record directly onto the included 2GB SD card. The STEALTH1 is also SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) compatible up to 32GB (not included), offering up to almost 2 full years of continuous recording.

Easily Review and Transfer Your Video

The STEALTH1 offers a live-view mode. You can view video footage by connecting to your TV, or remove the SD card to view or archive all recorded video on your computer. This is also useful for submitting to law enforcement or security professionals if your video footage is needed.

Advanced Motion Activated Recording

The camera can sense movement so you will know when something suspicious occurs. You also have the option to record video only when motion is detected, which conserves SD card space.

High Quality MPEG-4 Video Compression

The STEALTH1 records to the included SD card in MPEG-4 compressed video. This allows for hours of recording without any sacrifice in quality, and in a format common to most computers. This makes reviewing, backing up, and archiving on your PC very easy.

24/7 Scheduled Recording to Meet Your Needs

Set up your preferred scheduled recording time throughout a 24 hour day. This gives you the ability to continuously record when your employees count cash and close your business, and then record only when motion is detected after the building is closed and locked for the evening.

Find Your Video Footage Easily with Time, Date, and Event Search

Simply choose the desired date and time range, and the requested video clips will appear. Clips are also labeled by event, which makes it easy to find footage that was captured by motion detection.

24/7 Lifetime Live Customer Support

Assistance is available for you whenever you need it. Simply visit www.defender-usa.com for simple tips on how to protect your property and instructional videos on topics such as camera placement.

It's really well made, really easy to install, and really easy to set up.

Oh, and the only way to watch recordings is to connect it to the TV, or put the Micro SD card into a computer.
Juniorverse1
Overall it is a good product and one I would recommend (with good lighting).

This spy cam is so simple to use and it takes great videos on an SD memory card. You can put the camera anywhere or mount it on the wall and it will record video for over a month. The videos are in 30 second segments by date and time on the SD card. It connects to the TV with one simple cable (supplied) for viewing and you can fast forward and rewind like a VCR with buttons on the back. It can be used plugged in or can run on batteries. This would be a good nanny cam or in an area you need to monitor for security purposes. The only bad part is that it doesn't record video well in low light. So, this is a day time cam.

After reading all the good reviews. I decided to go for it. Oh, man I was so disappointed. This thing is a waste of money. So I thought it is my duty to put things right. The video images is very grainny under low light condition. Unuseable pixelated movie that can't tell the face or any details(color is wash out). You can only get decent video clip under bright day light or min. 2 x 100 watts light bulb lumination.

Go for one with night vision or at least 2 Lux DVR if you want decent video clips otherwise if you can live with lousy image when condition get dark using this Stealth!

I also find this camera with such poor quality video recording grossly over priced. Many cheaper spy cameras produces far sharper images then this. This is my personal experience and opinion.

The Defender recorder does a decent job as long as you plan to plug it in for power. Just don't plan on using battery power, or you will be changing them every two days. The only real functional quirk I've run into is that to check the video, I need to unplug it from the power (obvious) to take it over to the TV. But if it is turned off (or unplugged) while recording, the manual says some video can be corrupted. Yet as you approach it, it will turn on from motion detection (sort of an awkward catch 22). Anyway, I can live with that I think, just something to be aware of. What really sucked is that I paid for upgraded premium shipping, but the vendor (JUSTBUYITHERE) took two weeks to ship. I selected the vendor, because they were near by my Southern California location. I thought paying extra for priority shipping meant I would have it in two or three days, but I didn't receive the item for over two weeks. They did ship priority mail, just not for over a week! Some vendors get it and some just don't. All I can say is "JUSTBUYITHERE" just BLOWS! I won't be doing any further business with them, and I recommend you don't.

Pros: Discreet, Sensitive, Easy To Set Up, Accurate
Cons: Adapter Wire not white, Adapter Wire too short
Best Uses: Spying, Use your imagination
Describe Yourself:Do-It-Yourself

Overall... it's a great Device for Discreet spying and monitoring where you like. You can just pop in the SD card in to your card reader and the footages taken starts playing with Windows Media Player. I just wish it had sound as well, But I guess it would use double the memory, so I can see why they did not incorporate sound into it. The video Quality is Great. And for $250 it's a no brainier. If you are into gadgets and detective work This is definitely a must have. As I mentioned before the adapter wire is too short, though you can just cut the wire and extend it with another wire and use Electric tape to seal it.

This camera had everything I needed in terms of features: battery operated, smallish, motion sensor. The first time I tried to use it, the motion sensor stopped working after several hours. The second time I tried to use it, the motion sensor stopped working after several minutes. It looks good in the product description, but if it doesn't work, it's just no good.

There is a lot to like about the Stealth DVR by Defender. It offers an affordable way to covertly capture and record the events of an area. While such a device may not discourage criminals it certainly may make it easier for them to get apprehended. The Stealth DVR looks like any other motion detector, except for the small pinhole camera located at the bottom. Once activated the camera will record (with pretty good image quality) for a set amount of time. This ideal for use in a nursery (nanny cam), an office building (are the cleaning people stealing the change out of your desk) or other areas where you have lingering suspicions.

Pros

- Good video quality (see the video portion of the review)
- Multi-position mounting bracket
- Lots of control on how and when you want the camera to record
- The main power source will likely be the AC adapter, but the camera can take 4 AA batteries as a back-up.
- Comes with a 2G memory card

Areas for improvement

- The reason for a 1/2 star reduction t is that it does take some time and patience to get the camera set-up correctly. The manual is helpful, but you may need to read through it a couple of times.
- As other mentioned - this is a camera for a well lit area - once you have a significant reduction in light you start to have issues.
A few others have mentioned that they are disappointed in the lack of sound. For me it is not that big of a deal. If you are going to use this camera the video capture is going to be far more useful than the sound emitted.
- The video format is not Mac compatible - I used the
