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"

Save your money and just hack into the government satellites that have your boat under surveillance.

Or some IR light!! Try to buy some triple-LED red glow IR LEDs. They work GREAT for night time, and most cameras will capture it and 'see' it as white light.

Thank you kindly Jersey! Jersey for President. Great review. Amazon should think about hiring you as Expert Product Reviewer.

Can this camera be installed with an add-on accessory that would allow me to view and record what I am viewing remotely visa the internet?

Is there a complete wireless mini spy camera system with multiple cameras out there you'd recommend that can view and record remotely via the internet product? My budget is less than $150.

I saw only two types of nuts here...one of them did not fall from a tree. 8I LMAO
Funny.
But thanks for the review. I am kind of excited to test this out as well. Nice to see the clarity even from a camera-tv view.
