Internal and external recording?

Depicted below is a full page of motion detection events all saved to internal SD card memory.  Each thumbnail depicts a recording time and date and by simply clicking on that image,  the entire motion detection event can be remotely played in its true HD recording quality, similar to a video clip. Any recording that needs to be retained can be saved to PC without the need to remove the memory card.  When the 64GB memory capacity is full it will auto over write (recycle recording) from the earliest date.

One of the main advantages of using an internal memory is recording speed (up to 10 images per second) and recording duration.  Each motion detection event can retain recording a few seconds BEFORE motion was detected, including the actual motion and then keep recording as long as you like after motion has stopped.  Authorised users simply login to the camera to view and playback any recording retained on the SD card.  

Lets say 3G Solar Cam is setup on a building site. We know the site is very busy between 6.00am and 4.00pm Monday to Friday.  The site is closed every evening including weekends and public holidays.  This is where the internal memory is sensational.  We set up a SCHEDULE for you.  That schedule auto instructs the camera to record all motion to internal memory during working hours.  Its using virtually no 3G or server data its simply recording motion.  However, after 4.00pm (including weekends and state by state public holidays) any motion detected during those times is saved to our servers instead where its safe.  On;y then is it using minimal 3G and server data (shouldn’t be much activity anyway) which is why our server can then email alert users to motion.  The entire system can me professionally monitored if required.   In CCTV mode there are no alarm alerts just recording but after hours it will auto enter into motion alarm mode which conserves both 3G and Cloud server data.

Please note that users can simply arm or disarm CCTV and Alarm functions at any time.  Same applies to the warning speaker it doesn’t need to be armed constantly but only when required.

A 1-2GB Data SIM card is more than enough for most customers but easily adjusted, perhaps even a Telstra Pre-Paid SIM.

With a memory SD card interfaced with the camera, depicted below is an event playback using a MAC although it’s exactly the same using a Windows PC or mobile phone or any smart device.  In the top left hand corner of the screen, note that EVENTS tab is highlighted orange.  Motion detection alarm events are depicted vertically on the left hand side so by simply clicking the event, the recording will be displayed full screen.  The main full screen view will be displayed in a lower resolution (conserving data) however, by simply touching the “zoom” tab in the bottom right hand corner, the image depicts its full 2MP recording quality.  The difference in quality is quite noticeable even in this lowered resolution web demonstration.

In this playback, motion was detected and the camera was programmed to take 7 images over 10 seconds.  The 7 thumb nails at the base of the image depict the motion event.  To playback, press the play tab in the centre of the main screen and all 7 images will display rapidly in a “video like” display although any of the thumbnails can be highlighted to freeze frame in full screen mode.  In full screen mode users have the option to enhance or zoom into the picture up to 14 x digital or save the 2MP picture to PC Hard drive for future reference.

This image is the same as above however, note the 1.7x digital zoom image enhancement which is conducted remotely.  The digital zoom can be enhanced to 14x.  Note the CCTV tab highlighted orange.  That means we are actually playing back a recording from the internal memory rather than a saved Cloud recording.  Even if internal memory is preferred, our Cloud servers can still remotely record and save “alarm events” so nothing is ever missed. Internal memory can record as fast as 10 images per second which is about cartoon speed.  Also note that each thumbnail at the base of the main image is actually a 2 megapixel picture all time and date stamped.  The “sequence” tab on the right hand side depicts a date or calendar so by touching the calendar users may select any time and date within hours, days, weeks or months previously depending on the memory capacity selected which could be hundreds of gigabytes. 

zoom-1.7x

Same as above except here the zoom is normal 1x digital or a wider angle view.
