• Audio detector allowing sounds to be recorded when within range

How do I view the recorded video/images?

Simply plug the Spy Clock into a computer via the USB cable provided, which will prompt a pop up allowing you to view the folder. This will then allow you to view the recorded photos and videos through the relevant media viewing software.

Can I expand the memory capacity?

The Spy Clock comes with an 8GB microSD card; however, you can expand this up to 32GB maximum capacity.

How does motion detection work?

The motion detection function will automatically record if motion is triggered within three metres of the lens.

From standby mode, press and hold the motion detection button. The red light will flash six times and then turn off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and view video. This camera gives a decent picture, is simple to use and will pick up movement from a good distance - certainly adequate for even a large room.

The clock doesn't seem to trigger for motion recording.   The instructions say press the on/off button for a few seconds then the mode button for a few seconds.  Is this correct or am I doing something wrong?

Asked by: Glasgow Mo
From the manual I can see, you should put the unit into standby mode (the easiest way to do this is to power the unit off and then turn on, the default mode from startup is standby and should be indicated by an orange light). Then press and hold the motion detection button, looking at the back of the unit this is the one in the top right, until you see a red light flash 6 times. The unit will then be in motion detection mode. The full manual can be downloaded at the following link:

When at home the clock I presume would be activated when walking around. Does the clock switch off and on Off to save battery life ? 

Asked by: Richard C
No, I am sorry but the item has no support for this.

Does the motion detector save battery life? In the description it says 2 hours battery life…but with the motion detector i'm assuming it saves battery since it only records when motion is detected?

Asked by: BerBer
It would last longer but motion run time is not been given a time.

Does this just plug in to a electric socket

Asked by: Jayne
This has a built in rechargeable battery, which should give around two hours continuous recording on a full charge. You can power this through a mains to USB power adapter for longer recording.

Can I use this with my iMac to view files with Mac OS 10. If not can anyone tell me of a spycam clock that works. It is to view someone in care to prevent abuse and neglect

Asked by: Waem
On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.
