BrickHouse Security's Camscura Tilt Hidden Camera lets you turn virtually any household object into a self-contained surveillance system. You can leave the camera in plain sight or conceal it within a tissue box or stuffed animal. This camera captures 1280 x 720 video and stores files to a microSD card, which is not included. It captures video in JPEG format and allows users to easily view time-stamped, AVI files on their tablets and computers with the supplied miniUSB. The miniUSB also doubles as a charger. Its 180° adjustable pivot lens and 160° viewing angle, give users flexibility when it comes to positioning this camera. Its compact and unobtrusive design and lack of wiring, makes this camera easy to hide in virtually any room.

The Camscura camera offers Motion, Vibration, Sound, and Continuous recording modes with adjustable sensitivity settings. In Continuous mode it has up to a 10-hour battery life, and can run for up to 90-days on Standby battery power. A miniUSB cable and AC power adapter are included with this camera.

    BrickHouse Security 255HCBB001 reviews

    Camscura Tilt Hidden Camera is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time or you money. I purchased 3 of these units and put all of them through the paces. The video quality, in anything other than bright daylight, is horrible. The night mode is useless. Subjects are blurred even at a slow walking pace. Night mode is also very, very grainy. The various sensors work inconsistantly. Cameras also failed (randomly and on different cards) to write to the MicroSD card after a power cycle (card was not removed). I would have to sometimes reformat the cards. All the cards were test with H2testw 1.4 and all passed (they are all authentic cards from various manfs. including SanDisk, Samsung, Lexar, etc.) In all cases, using a card reader on my PC was successful so I was always able to copy the videos off the cards. Unfortunate because I love the size & weight of the unit and the tilting head but the low quality internals makes this not worth buying...maybe for $ I would consider it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality First, this product is not worth the price tag. It's quality suggest it might be worth $. It does not perform as stated and the software upgrade file will not open in Windows 7.
    Date published: 2014-12-23
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am buying 2 more As advertised. The wide angle lens permitted setting up 1 camera in a corner and capturing the entire room. As expected picture quality goes down in poor light but still adequate for surveilance. Instructions could be beter but 1 call to company and had all questions answered quickly. Will be buying more to get coverage in additional rooms. Setup software loaded and worked well in Windows 8.1.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as described This unit was exactly as described. The unit is rechargeable and you can put any size micro Sd card for recording. The unit does take a while to charge and there is no display to Indicate operation on the actual unit. There is a series of blinking leds that indicate what operations are. Reccomend downloading their software and setting all the features through the computer. Overall it worked as described.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok basic but works Difficult to tell when it's on or off. The switch is unclear.
    Date published: 2016-07-24
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice video quality The Camscura Tilt Camera seems to work really good. The video quality is good and works for what I need. I haven't tested in low light. My only run is the fact this camera only records video and no audio. From the description of having a microphone I was under the impression it would record audio too. The microphone is only a audio trigger to start recording.
