Product overview

• 380 TVL resolution for great up close recording
• Analogue CCTV camera providing you a picture with little interference
• Broad viewing angle of 80 degrees ensures that the object of interest is also in view
• Sensitive in-built microphone for recording audio whilst monitoring discreetly

In operations or occupations where total covert operation is a must, this camera will allow the user to integrate the camera into their own clothing by using the supplied buttons. With 380 TVL picture, a wide viewing angle of 80 degrees and a built in microphone, providing you with good recorded footage that includes audio, making this camera ideal for discreet monitoring.

What do I need to start recording?
The covert button camera needs to be powered by a 5 to 12V power supply (e.g. Order Code: N93JU), which connects to the supplied AV and power adapter. The plug ‘n’ play composite phono (RCA) video and single phono audio connectors of the AV adapter allows the camera to be easily integrated with a camcorder or portable DVR. On the other hand if you wanted to connect the camera to a traditional DVR you can with a phono to BNC cable (such as Order Code: A65NZ) and with the audio you will need a single phono to twin phono RCA cable (such as order code: A40NX).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks cheep and do not if it will work Do know how good the product is because I have not used it i do think it looks like toy

If this camera needs to be connected to a 5 to 12V power supply, I fail to see how it can be used as mobile covert surveillance. It seems that for it to be usable, I would have to sit next to a power socket, every time I wanted to use it. Useless.

Asked by: Michael
You could utilize the product in the link below with 8 AA batteries to provide the 12V you would require to operate this unit therefore not having to be connected to a power outlet;

The system appears to offer a mobile (disguised as buttons) camera, but the power supply you linked to it is a mains plug. Seems to defeat the object. Is there a portable power supply option?

there are no instructions/ manual showing how to use the 380 TVL covert button CCTV camera code N90CX

Asked by: michael
The camera needs to be connected to a suitable recording device via the RCA/phono audio video plugs. Also you need to provide the camera with power (5-12v)
