Product Highlights
  • For Covert Surveillance
  • PIR Sensor for Motion Detection
  • 1.3 MP Camera / Triggered Recording
  • 1280 x 1024 Resolution

The Swann ADS-45 Indoor PrivateEye Hidden Video Camera is ideal for discreet video monitoring, especially in sensitive areas where people are not comfortable being watched. Though intended for daytime use, the camera can function even during night, provided the surveillance area is well-lit.

Despite having the looks of an ordinary PIR alarm sensor, the covert 1.3 MP camera can deliver clear pictures at 1280 x 1024 resolution and videos up to 30 frames per second. A built-in microphone can capture sound up to a maximum distance of 9’ (3 m).

Trigger interval delays can be defined for recording or the camera can also be set to record only when motion is detected. A built-in slot in the camera can accommodate SD cards up to 32 GB for storing still images and video footage (card not included). For every 1 GB of space, you can store over 2,000 pictures or 1 hour of video or a combination thereof in proportion.

The indoor camera runs on 4 AA batteries and you can place it anywhere on a wall or ceiling, without running wires or needing a power output close by. With minimum installation and zero setup, the camera is a true plug and play unit.

Looks like any standard PIR detector used in alarm systems

        Comments about Swann ADS-45 Indoor PrivateEye Hidden Video Camera:

        I purchased this item for use at my winter home when I'm away. It's easy to setup and use and the video and .jpeg pics are of reasonable resolution. The only problem I note -- and I couldn't get SWANN to answer an email -- is how long the batteries will last IF not frequently triggered (IF it's triggered, a bad boy is inside my home!). It DOES have an external power plug but the instructions do not say if this supply is diode protected from external input power. Also, there's only one very distant reference TO the external power with no info about it. VERY poor instructions on this matter.

        I plan to wire the thing up such that it does have external power feeding it from a 6volt lantern battery which should last the 6 months I need it to be "watching."

        Anyhow ... for the price and its small size, a great device. I did not want a complex system ... just something to tell me who may have been inside IF a problem arises.

            Comments about Swann ADS-45 Indoor PrivateEye Hidden Video Camera:

            Works as advertised. Clear instructions and video quality better than anticipated. Biggest drawback is the lack of options in the video mode. You can't use the date stamp function in video and it only takes 10 second videos when motion activated. You can set the delay to 10 seconds to effectively get continuous video, but the other options are to delay for "X" number of minutes before starting another video if motion is still detected.

              Just what I was looking for, a small descrete camera that blends in with the existing alarm system to the point that if you don't know it's a camera you pay no attention to it.
