Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of space This “spy” clock is totally useless and a waste of space: it only records up to 10’ or less, then it just stops. I contacted IT support at Thumbs! and they asked me to send the clock back to them to “repair”. After a couple of week testing it, they send it back to me saying that this is how it supposed to work: it can only record up to 10’ maximum, so that’s is about 300MB only. The clock came with a 8GB card and I bought a 32GB card hoping it will record at least one hour or so to detect incident, but it is a piece of junk, very erratically sometimes it only records 3 minutes, other times 5 minutes, never seen more than 10 minutes recording, it is really frustrating. Avoid the huge hassle and don’t buy

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It depends what you want it for I awarded two stars because it really looks the business and will record video. BUT I wanted the motion sensor to trigger a video. When I tried to set it all the correct lights flashed but it failed to film when there was motion. Maplin took it back and refunded, no quibble, and offered me another. But I couldn't face getting it home and it not working again. So don't count on it for motion sensor filming!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay clear Not so cheap, but not working at all. I had one, tried everything to get it working, exchanged it for another one which did not work either.

Can I swap the battery after its flat and keep recording without loosing what I first recorded ... can it run on windows 7

Asked by: Bobby
The unit would not erase the contents of the Micro SD card between charges, you would need to format this through a computer to delete files. This has been tested up to Windows Vista, so we cannot guarantee compatibility with Windows 7.

With the motion facility the clock starts recording only when it detects a motion i.e. it uses energy only during small periods so why this clock cannot record for longer than the two hours that lasts the battery when it is not used with a web cam?

Asked by: book1
Whilst it doesn't record until motion occurs, it still has to actively process the incoming image to check for changes that would indicate movement. Irrespective of what mode the unit is in the battery will last for 2 hours

Can I  use it all the day to protect my room if I go out by using the motion facility which will start it only if someone enters in my room? What is its angle vision and will it cover all my room or only a part of it? What is the remote switch?

Asked by: book1
It has a battery life of 2 hours when in use. It can be used all day when connected to a computer using as a web cam with dedicated software running.

Does the clock camera come with any internal memory or does it need a card of some sort? I see that adding a 32Gb card is an option but is there any internal memory if there is no card added?

Asked by: Rob209
This information is presented in the user guide/datasheet for the device, which can be found on the downloads tab of the product listing. However if you are using a mobile phone or tablet to view our website it may not be visible. To this end I have copied in a link to the electronic version of the instructions as well as a brief summary of the requested information below for your convenience. • 4 GB micro SD card fitted - clock will support micro SD cards up to 32GB .

1. How many degrees does the video film? 2. What happens when memory card is full? Does video stop recording or record over previous images? 3. Which is your most recent manual on downloads tab? 4. Does the 4GB give 120 mins continuous rec or is that 32GB

Asked by: Lisa
The clock tilts through 190+ degree so recording can be achieved through many angles. When the card is full it will record over itself. Both manuals are the same. This would be on the 4GB micro SD card that is included.
