The versatile and inconspicuous black-box design of the Camscura Lux Hidden Camera allows this secret camera to blend into any setting, poised to record at a moment's notice. One battery charge will let this discreet recorder sit silently, ready to record for up to 6 months. Onboard invisible infrared (IR) sensors can be set to trigger recording at the first sign of motion, sound, body heat, or vibration, even in low light situations. Standby on one charge for up to 6 months, record up to 24 hours when triggered the hidden IR sensor.
Extend its usefulness and reach by connecting it to external sensors, sold separately, which expand the uses of the Camscura Lux Hidden Camera. For example, connect it to a door sensor to trigger recording when a specific event occurs, such as when a door is opened or if a window is broken. Expand your storage by adding an SD card of up to 64GB, sold separately.
