We are pretty sure that by now you have already heard of the amazing ESP AlertCam, a stand alone weatherproof light switching PIR detector with integral CCTV camera (coming with built in video recording device).
When it is properly sited and installed, this PIR can switch on up to 500W of lighting (flood lights, outdoor lights, etc) directly, and it can store clear still color images (rate: 2 shots per seconds, for 20 seconds). The question is, Where Do People Use ESP AlertCam?
Where Can We Use ESP AlertCam?
The ESP AlerCam Outdoor PIR with images taking and storing capability is ideal for many outdoor applications. You can use it in the driveway (especially if you are not expecting a lot of cars), in the back garden (to make sure people are not intruding or if they try, they will be recorded), in forecourts, etc.
Among the more peculiar uses can be in yards and farms, where you don’t usually go during the night, so that it would monitor the intrusion at night.
Most popular uses of this external PIR camera with RF controlled light and alarm activation is at the front door, around the garage, in the car park, around the manor house, etc.
What Does the ALERCAM PIR Do?
When the passive infrared sensor detects intrusion in its perimeter, it will internally switch on up to 500W lighting, it will commence still image recording with time and date stamp, and it will send a wireless trigger signal to any number of remote chime / alarm units (if you set it up this way).
The PIR detection is of 10m at an angle of 160deg (adjustable), and the camera has a resolution of 640 x 480. The pictures are stored on a SD card of up to 2GB (thousands of images in JPEG format).
Whenever the alarm is triggered, you can then use the micro B type USB2 interface to download the images and detect who is intruding.
Also: Part of the ESP GuardCam System
The AlertCam PIR can also be used in the complete ESP GuardCam LED system (a simple, cost-effective all-in-one security system). Or, if you so desire, you can use it only by itself and install other LED flood lights / outdoor lights to work with it.
