The Defender Covert Alarm Clock DVR with Built-in Color Pinhole Spy Camera is a discreet security system hidden in a LCD alarm clock. When placed on any desk or cabinet, the Covert Alarm Clock DVR allows you to record high-quality 640 x 480 resolution videos at 12 fps and 320 x 240 resolution videos at 30 fps. Besides discreetly monitoring activities, this clock will even wake you up when you set an alarm.

The DVR can be programmed to record footage at specified times when you’re not at your desk or only when motion is detected. A combination of both these recording modes can be used, so you're aware what's going on at your home/business.

This device saves footage directly on to an SD card, and you can either set it to stop recording when the SD card is full or to overwrite older footage. The recorded videos can be transferred from the SD card on to a computer for back up and later viewing. With MPEG-4 compression, your video files’ size is smaller, so hours of footage can be stored on the SD card, without any compromise on the quality.

You can watch live feed or review previously recorded footage on a larger screen by directly connecting this covert device to a television or monitor via the RCA connection.

        Comments about Defender Covert Alarm Clock DVR with Built-in Color Pinhole Spy Camera:

        There had been several break-ins in my neighborhood, so I purchased this device. Two weeks after installing this, I had a break-in, and it caught the thiefs in action. The camera was set up in my office. They ignored it completely, the police took the video files, and I'm circulating the evidence. Now the whole neighborhood knows who to look for. Likes:The controls are somewhat intuitive, and I could get it to work without too much trouble. Documentation is good. Lots of options let you use it how you want for your needs. Setting the recording on overwrite and having a wall plug lets you set it up and forget about it until you need it (how I like using it).Dislikes:The picture quality is not particularly good. I would like a little higher resolution, which is not an option. Overall:Good product for the price, but don't expect great quality video.
