Our Zetta Max infrared covert video recording cam is a tiny and versatile recorder smaller than a deck of playing cards. The ZMax surveillance camera with IR is the premier recorder of the Zetta Max line. Not only does it have all the same great features as our Zetta Max Micro, but it also has IR, so it can still see even in complete darkness. The ZMax IR records in 720P HD and has a 160-degree field of view to capture everything in a 10x20 foot area while placed 5 feet back. The Zetta Max can also record not just upon motion detection but also by using its built-in Passive Infrared (PIR) to trigger recordings based on body heat, giving you fewer false motion alerts.

HOW DOES THE Zetta Max Video Recorder Cam Work?

With only one button for powering on and off with a slider switch to change the recording mode from continuous, motion detection, or custom settings, this camera is straightforward to work with. Plug in an SD Card, put it into whatever record mode you need, hit the power button, and set it down. It will have a little green light flashing to indicate it is recording, and an orange light will flash when you turn it on or off. There is a special, free program available for download onto your computer that will allow you to set up lots of other features such as voice activation, low light mode, turn off that tiny power on/record light, and even set the date and time.

WHY CHOOSE THIS Security Camera?

In the market for a small camera that can see in the dark? Here is your answer. The built-in Infrared lets the camera see about 10-15ft in complete darkness, making this camera a good solution for monitoring a business after hours or catching your child sneaking around after curfew.

The Zetta Max with IR has a nice, wide field of view to cover the largest area possible, which would be perfect when placed in the corner of a room. When creatively placed in the car, the camera will cover the driver and passenger seat and possibly the back seat of an average compact or midsize car.

The Zetta Max has the longest-lasting battery in our ZMax line with up to 12 hours of life when set to motion or continuous recording and up to 180 days in standby when set in PIR or vibration mode. The Zmax intelligent security hidden camera also has input/output contacts. You'll be able to set up this surveillance camera to have its recording triggered by many types of other devices, such as motion sensors and smoke detectors, which can also greatly extended battery life.

When the battery is fully depleted, it'll take up to 8 hours for a full recharge. By inserting a 128GB SD card, you can acquire more than 96 hours of continuous 720P video. Windows and Mac compatible, use Windows Media player or VLC Media player to play your recordings. Also, there is a wonderful tool available for download from the manufacturer for use with a Windows or a Mac computer so that you can configure the custom settings.

    Q: How much average battery life can I expect?
    A: You can get up to 12 hours of battery with motion detection or continuous recording modes. You can also set the device to record based on Body Heat triggering, which will put it on standby for up to 180 days.

    Q: I bought a 64GB/128GB card, but it's not working.
    A: You'll need to download the free Zetta Widget to format the card to enable use in the unit.

    Q: What field of view will I get?
    A: You will get a 160-degree field of view.

    Q: What is the video quality?
    A: This unit records Hi-Definition video at 720P (1280x720)

    Q: How does the device detect movement?
    A: Through the Zetta Widget, you can set the unit to use a passive infrared sensor to detect heat like a driveway alert kit does or a motion sensor for an alarm system. This helps cut down on false alerts and allows for maximum battery life. If you use just the motion detection preset, it'll work off visual changes in the environment.

    Q: I did the custom settings for different triggers, but it didn't record the event. What happened?
    A: The device utilizes a PIR trigger, a vibration trigger, or an audio trigger customized through the widget. Since the triggers can sometimes kick on when nothing is there and miss crucial events, it's recommended to only use this mode once you've done a few tests in the area you will be using this hidden camera.

    Q: How good is the audio on the device?
    A: In a quiet environment, you can expect a 10-15ft radius to capture audio clearly. All environments are different, though, and it's recommended to perform a few tests to ensure that the audio will capture what you need.

    Q: How good is the video? Can I see License Plates?
    A: This unit is not built to capture license plates specifically. In the right situation, at the right height, and in optimal settings (daytime), you may be able to get a license plate. The camera records at 1280 x 720 resolution (HD Quality). We recommend performing a test run and adjusting the camera's location to make sure you can get the data needed.

    Q: I want to use it to protect my car. Will it still work on a hot summer day?
    A: The device can still work at 113°F; beware that it will be much hotter inside a car. If you absolutely need to use this device on a hot summer day, we recommend parking your car in the shade.

    Q: Why is the night vision not working?
    A: The night vision mode is not a default setting; to turn this mode on, make sure the device is set in custom setting mode and turn on the IR in the application software.

    Q: How well does the night vision work?
    A: Roughly 10-15Ft.

    Q: Is the video date and time-stamped?
    A: Yes

    Q: What's the largest SD card I can use?
    A: 128GB

    Q: Which media player do you recommend for playback?
    A: We highly recommend that you download VLC Media Player it's a free download and works with Windows and Mac computers.

    Q: Can I download my videos on a PC and a Mac?
    A: Yes. If you own a Mac, we recommend downloading VLC media player for Macs to view your recorded videos.

    Hi, I am going to be very honest here about the Zetta Zir32. The item is one of a kind, with lots of customizable option, a lot of sensors and great battery life, which I have not see anywhere. The only culprit I found is the video quality 720p with 20fps is not working out well for what I need. (Trying to catch a car thief, by attaching the Zetta to my car visor) in underground parking garage with decent light. It may work much better for indoor purposes.

    Hi, I got the camera but didn't have the chance to use it yet but as soon as I did I will definitely write a review thanks.

    Had to buy another one.

    My old Zetta IR (infer-red) did so well I had to buy another one. It not only recorded flawlessly, but the audio was beyond anything I would have expected it would be. It ended up being a bonus since I didn't know I needed the audio during a break in. Only finding out that people discuss the gloat about the current situation and others. So, it can be a great relief to somebody else once hearing about the criminals tactics and any plots on your own home that could involve other people in the future. Even where they plan on taking your stuff if burglary is the issue. Another one is needed and I rely on this visual aspect of the camera to catch the detail the old one gave me to catch a family member vandalize my property and the home to try and force whatever wont be forced to me. Needed always.

    Quality Product

    Easy to use, good night vision, good battery life. Only complaint is manual says it works with 64GB SD card but it did not work with the one I purchased. Called and asked they recommended using a 32GB SD card.


    Thank you for your review! The device can use a 64GB and can even use up to a 128GB, but there's something special you'll need to do with the SD card and a computer program acquired from the support section of the product page, so give us a call at 1-800-292-7748 and we'll help you out with that. We are here Monday through Saturday, 10am to 6pm CST.
