This Clock Does Anything & Everything You Can Imagine
This clock is exactly what I need in my living room. It Not only does everything an alarm clock does, but it's also a hidden security camera, and more.
First off it is an alarm
clock, and it looks like any other alarm clock you see in the store. However if
you get up close you can tell that something is a little different. I will
explain that in a moment. This clock and alarm are set just like any other, with
buttons on the back. You Have a time, mode, set, up and down button. The clock
comes with a nice easy to follow manual, this will explain step by step setting
it up and everything else. This clock doesn't just tell you the time, it also
has the temperature (available in
both Fahrenheit & Celsius) on it which is a really nice
bonus. It tells you the month, day and year as well, it really does do
everything. The clock has a nice sleek design and the white color means it fits
in with any decor. This Spy clock is smaller then the other I have in my
bedroom, and I think it seems more like an average clock. It is far from
If you get up close to
the face of this clock you will notice it says lens. This is the
camera lens, and the part you will use to aim this in the direction you
want to record. This does include it's own micro SD 8gb memory card and
adapter, which is great because it means you can use this as soon as it
arrives. When the clock comes it also includes the charger (micro usb), the
remote, and a reflective cover for the face of the clock. This cover will
eliminate the chance of someone seeing the word lens on it, I have included a
picture before the cover is on and one after to show what I mean. To use the
camera part is really quite simple.
First of all make sure
your clock is fully charged and ready for recording. This means you have
inserted the SD card as well, the slot for it is right above the battery area.
There is also an on, off switch located here for the camera, make sure that is
in the on position. After you have the card in simply place the
clock so it is aimed at the area of the room you want to record. Then with the
remote you can control the camera without touching the clock, this
will help you be discrete about it. There are
4 different modes for you to record in, all controlled with the tiny remote.
motion activated recording, which means when motion is sensed in
front of the camera it will start recording video. This one is great for trying
to catch someone in your home when your not there, or things like that. The
second mode is just regular recording. This is good if you want to record
something going on in it's entirety, like a conversation of something. The
third one is for taking still images. Not quite sure what I will use this one
for yet, maybe at Christmas for random candid pictures of everyone.
The 4th and final mode is just sound recording. This Would be great for
conversations, and the recordings take up very little room without images. I
love all the modes, and was very surprised/impressed with the quality.
The pictures and videos
are really clear (I use the adapter to view them on my laptop), you would never
guess they were taken with a clock. Everything in the images is clear you can
even see some smaller details. The range is also great
you definitely don't have to have it right next to the person or
object you want to record. The sound is nice and clear, and it doesn't fade in
and out like some voice recorders I own do.
Overall This is just a
Really Great alarm clock and hidden camera. It really preforms like a
high end model for both aspects. If you are looking to record in secret you
need this clock.
