5.0 out of 5 stars Squirrel Cam, May 1, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 2.4 Ghz Wireless Surveillance System (Camera)
Length:: 1:58 Mins

This video was taken with a Kodak EasyShare DX4530 5MP Digital Camera w/ 3x Optical Zoom aimed at my Insignia HD LCD TV that is projecting the images from the Instapark 1.2GHZ Hidden Mini Pinhole Nanny / Spy Wireless Color Video Camera with Microphone.. The "Beeping" sound is from a Driveway Patrol Sensor and Receiver Kit that I have mounted inside a feeder........... Yes I live a boring life :)

BTW, The video did lose about 10% clarity from being taken with the Kodak from the TV.

Overall a nice wireless video spy camera, but a 500' range? More like 50'-75' range.

UPDATE: 04/25/12

I had to take down the camera and feeder (along with all the Peanuts) :( because the Squirrel's UGLY "Cousins" aka the Rats started visiting!

I wish I took videos of the "Mexican Standoffs" and seldom skirmishes between them.

BTW: The Squirrels always came out the "Victor"

Is it only for real time recording? I use it as a nanny camera, can I record it and watch it later either on TV or on my laptop? Do I need to buy extra equipment for the recording like a vcr? Thanks.

You need to buy extra equipment for the recording like a SABRENT USB-AVCPT USB 2.0 Audio Video Creator Capture DVD Maker Editor Adapter I haven't tried one, it also has "mixed" reviews.

I want to thank you for posting a sample video. I find buying a camera very difficult when I can't see any actual representation of quality. Because of your video, I see that this is a pretty good camera in general and I am buying it.

Thank you.

How do you send the images from the wireless camera to the tv? Could you send the image to a computer?

It comes with a Camera Signal Receiver, cables and power adapters, just like Mini Wireless Color Camera with Microphone. I think it's the same one but under a different brand, and less expensive too!
