How do I setup this camera and view footage?

Easy to use, the WatchBot HD can be setup in minutes. Featuring simple plug and play technology and a built-in webserver all you will need is a computer with an internet connection. Viewing the footage could not be easier, whether you’re using a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone you can control and view the camera from anywhere with an internet connection. As the WatchBot HD has an advanced motion sensor, you will be immediately aware 24/7, of any unauthorised activity or intrusion captured by the camera. Events captured will be sent to your device when the sensors are triggered, offering you both an alert and image of the event.

The WatchBot is ideal for large or multiple locations, whether you need a camera to protect an office, or several if you’re a landlord with multiple properties. Up to 64 cameras can be connected, allowing the WatchBot to adjust and suit your requirements.

How can I control the camera?

When the WatchBot camera’s 70 degree viewing angle does not meet your needs, there are other solutions to help. The free app allows you to pan, tilt and flip the image, which is great if the camera is wall-mounted. It allows you to monitor an entire area with the remote access from your smart device. The WatchBot also allows you to enable pre-set movement patterns using the patrol mode. This mode can be activated at set times, making it ideal for safeguarding empty properties.

How long can the camera record for?

Whether it is a precious or important moment, the WatchBot HD has been designed to record under a number of circumstances. The cloud storage facility is available with options to record between seven and 30 days of continuous footage. Where you might have an unstable internet connection or no connection, the camera is able to record onto a Micro SD card, allowing you to install up to 32 GB of storage.

Is this easy to set up to monitor via internet? Can the PTZ be controlled remotely via the apps (i.e. away from the house)? The overview seems to say yes but reviews/specs do not.

Unfortunately we no longer stock this item as it has been discontinued from our range. Therefore we are unable to obtain any further in-depth Technical specification.

Hi can this camera be stood inside on a window sill to monitor movements out in the garden? Thanks Maggie

Asked by: Maggie
Yes that would be fine however when the night vision is active the playback may show glare due to there being a window in the way.
