The New X10 FloodCam Wireless CCTV…Combines Camera And PIR Sensing Lights in a Compact Solution.

The X10 ‘FloodCam’ Motion Sensing Floodlight and Wireless CCTV.

The New X10 FloodCam Wireless Camera combines the best of X10 surveillance and motion-activated technology in one compact powerful solution.

Take any intruders by surprise when caught in the glare of the twin floodlights (bulbs not included) and instantly capture all the action on your TV or video recorder.

The FloodCam wireless video camera is fully weather-resistant with an integrated 2.4 GHz transmitter and X10 motion sensor on a dual floodlight casing.

How Does It Work  When someone approaches your home, the FloodCam Colour Wireless CCTV Camera is activated by the integrated wireless motion sensor(within a range of up to 50 feet), which switches on the floodlights.

The camera then instantly begins capturing the event on video and sends the pictures wirelessly via a built-in 2.4 GHz transmitter, to a Video Receiver (accessory), which is connected to a TV anywhere in your home, so that you can watch and record all the action.

The floodlights are sensitive to day and night, automatically switching on, when motion is detected during the day, or during the hours of darkness.

In a multi-camera wireless CCTV set-up, the motion sensor sends wireless radio frequency (RF) signals to your X10 Transceiver(and/or your VCR), which passes them to your house wiring system, via the X10 Mains receiver with pre set codes to control other cameras, sound a warning chime, or switch on interior or exterior lights, etc.

An X10 Transceiver (TM13U) is required for multi-camera applications, or if you wish to programme the Floodcam’s PIR to control further X10 modules.
