The amazing FloodCam is a weather-resistant wireless video camera with built-in 2.4GHz transmitter and motion sensor and attached dual floodlight casing. The FloodCam is activated by the integrated motion sensor so that when someone approaches your home, the floodlights (bulbs not included) come on, turning night into day and the camera catches the startled intruder on video! The camera transmits its picture via a built-in 2.4 GHz transmitter, to a Video Receiver (not included) which you connect to a TV anywhere in your home. The FloodCam sends the wireless signals even through walls, up to 100 feet so you can watch and record all the action!
"SMART" BUILT-IN WIRELESS MOTION SENSOR (see photo above)
The video camera always turns on when motion is detected and the floodlights always turn on when it is dark and motion is detected. (An X10 Transceiver is NOT necessary for this but required for multi-camera applications.)
The motion sensor sends wireless Radio Frequency (RF) signals to an X10 Transceiver (or VCR Commander II.) The Transceiver receives the signals from the Motion Sensor and passes them onto your house wiring. These signals send the information back out to turn off the other cameras or to sound a chime, illuminate hallway lights, etc.
EASY TO USE & INTEGRATE INTO YOUR EXISTING CAMERA SYSTEM
This is a very simple system to install - just a few connections and you're up and running (assuming you will use the FloodCam to replace an existing outdoor light fixture). If there's not an existing fixture, you will need to install a wall box and run conduit to it. If you need help installing a wall box and running conduit please contact a local X10 professional installer.
YOU CONTROL EVERYTHING
Underneath the FloodCam unit (shown at left) is a hidden control panel that allows you to easily configure all the settings. Set the Channel to the same channel as your Video Receiver (not included).
The FLOODLIGHT CONTROL function allows you to detect motion at all times (LIGHT) or only when it gets dark (DARK). Using the TIME DELAY dial, you can adjust how long the camera waits to turn off after motion has stopped. The CAMERA MODE switch lets you set how the camera responds to motion and X10 controllers. Using the two dials at the bottom, set the camera's unit code and house code (example A-4). Keep your cameras in groups of four for better scanning control.
