How long is piece of string more to the point but a good question just the same? What about Construction Companies, Builders, new Home Construction, Logging Companies, Farms, identifying Ferral animals, Unattended Machinery vulnerable to vandalism, keeping a watch on your car at night, Trespassers, Property Owners, Driveway access, National Parks & Wildlife, Fuel Depots, Sheds, Storage areas, Vandalism and not forgetting of course discreetly identifying the common THIEF.
The list of applications is virtually endless and we haven’t yet touched upon the problems faced by Federal, State and local Govt Councils. Identifying illegal “bush dumping” in remote or non patrolled areas is just one of many concerns for rate and taxpayers alike. We all know theft, graffiti and vandalism is out of control and in many instances, the same culprit is doing it over and over again. So how can one identify vandals and thieves at minimal cost without the need to attend upon the camera daily?
Our Graffiti Security Camera could be hidden in a garbage bin, pot plant, perhaps strapped to a tree trunk (belt provided) or mounted anywhere inconspicuous. It will silently and discreetly record pictures and/or high resolution video whenever any person or vehicle moves within the camera motion activation zone and that can be up 15- 20m away. The 80 degree wide angle lens will see any movement within that zone and save the recorded time and date stamped pictures to the internal SD memory card. A wide angle view is important and for that reason, motion detected beyond 20m would make identity quite difficult The camera needs to be discreetly placed in an area where you know there is likely to be activity. This is quite important when mounting or hiding the camera. Remember, Graffiti Cam can record at very high resolution up to 12 megapixel so the ability to enhance or zoom in on any recorded image is sensational.
Many of our customers need a security camera such as this to record high resolution colour images by day but also record at night. This is where our Graffiti Security Camera is an a field of its own. Not only can it record day and night but it can record in complete darkness using the built in NO GLOW IR (Infra red) Illumination. Graffiti Cam functions have been enhanced.
In some circumstances, customers have been concerned that IR illumination from the camera could be a dead give-away. In other words a potential thief may see the dull red IR glow and either destroy and take the camera. The IR in this security camera is invisible or No Glow allowing the camera to record at night without revealing its location with an IR glow. The IR is not on constantly but during motion detection only thus conserving battery power. That’s why Hidden Camera Surveillance offers two camera options visible and non visible IR. There is no camera cost difference just a personal preference. The main difference between the two cameras is visible IR “dull red glow” can see twice as far as non visible NO GLOW IR.
To put this into perspective, our NO GLOW IR camera would need to be no further that 10-12m from a person or object in order to ID someone in complete darkness. It’s not an issue by day, only at night. Graffiti Cam auto switches to B/W mode at night as colour cannot see IR. The built in auto filter function mode switches the camera from colour by day to B/W mode at night or in low light. 940nm is invisible IR whereas 850nm is visible but only if looking directly at the camera. IR is not like a camera flash. Peripheral vision will not see IR anyway. With our optional invisible No Glow IR feature, its less likely the camera will be detected or seen at night no matter where it is mounted or hidden.
