Optex WATCHMAN overview

  • 1Description

Battery-powered and weatherproof, and highly compact, the Optex WATCHMAN can be quickly set up anywhere indoors or outdoors. And featuring 32 ft of LED-illuminated night vision, it can be used at any time of day, even in complete darkness. It captures video, photos, or time lapse photography upon motion detection, which can be set up using the 1.5" LCD on the bottom.

Capture video in up to 720p HD resolution at 20 fps, which plays back slightly faster than real time, as is common in surveillance footage. Capture 8MP photos in bursts of 1-9, or time lapse photography in 5 second intervals for up to 5 minutes (300 seconds). There's also a built-in mic that can be set up to capture sound when recording video, and an SD memory card slot supporting up to 32GB SD cards for storing everything. The WATCHMAN is powered by four size C batteries, not included, and can alternatively be powered by an optional 6 VDC power adapter.

    Optex WATCHMAN reviews

    WATCHMAN Battery Powered Surveillance Camera is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good little device OK it's not real little, but if you're clever you can put it someplace the burglar won't notice it. Image quality is great, infrared looks just as good as daylight, motion sensor works. battery life is good on burst shots, I haven't tested it on video. I wanted something that was self contained, not depending on wifi. It seemed so light, but then chips don't weight much, hefty when the batteries are in. Mostly pictures of myself since i haven't had a burglar yet, lol.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not exactly as described Not exactly as described, But does take good picture and film,just was expecting something else.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from IR filter loose While adjusting the settings for the camera I noticed the IR filter in front of the sensor is floating around. Holding it upside down the sensor falls into place but right side up the frame of the filter blocks the sensor. The bottom access panel does not close firmly.
