WIFI 1080P Mini Clock Camera
Hidden Nanny Cameras Just Got Better with our Miniature Clock Camera with IR
The WiFi miniature clock spy cam is a discreet, small desk clock with the ability to view 1080p live stream footage from anywhere in the world, even at night with the built-in infrared night vision! Simply set it up over the WiFi connection and view it from any internet connected device. This system is easily operated through a iPhone, Android, tablet or web browser.
This stealthy video recorder is an uncomplicated solution for any situation where needing to know "right now" is required. Checking in on a nanny, making sure the repairman is working, or just needing to know who's coming and going from your home or business are just some of the possible uses for this covert recorder. Designed to blend in with the majority of environments, this small non-intrusive device tells time like a regular clock. The device stores everything captured in 720p resolution onto a micro memory card, up to a 128GB.
How Does The WiFi Hidden Cam Work?
Setting up this device is simple, using P2P (peer to peer) technology. First, download an app called TinyCam via the Google play store or Apple App store. Enter your device's WiFi settings and connect with the unit's WiFi signal. Point your phone or tablet's camera at the QR code located on the bottom of the of the spy cam to scan the code, which will enable a point to point connection and you'll be able to initiate the live stream. Within the device settings you will then choose your home or office WiFi and enter the password to get onto your network and enable remote access to that high definition video stream. You'll need to adjust your router's WiFi password if there are any special characters ( ie., $, &, *, #, etc. ) as TinyCam cannot connect to a WiFi that has them.
Add as many same-brand devices as you need in an area and they'll be viewable with the same app. This nanny cam functions as a real digital clock, enabling it to seamlessly blend into almost any environment, and it works with both Android and iOS smart-devices.
There are two options for downloading files: you can dismount the memory card from the spy cam and use a USB card reader or SD card slot on your Windows or Mac PC to view the files, or you can download the recordings from the memory card directly to your phone! This can be super important in an environment where you can't be seen going back to this device for the memory card. When using a computer to play your files, don't worry about using some old clunky software, that won't be necessary since this device records in .MP4 format; simply copy your video files onto your desktop and watch them through your normal video software or VLC media player.
Why Choose this Nanny Cam?
This item looks and functions like a real clock, but concealed within is a nanny cam and digital video recorder. The unit even allows for remote storage of footage by simply pressing a button on your smart phone or internet capable device. This is perfect for situations where having a hard copy doesn't interfere with exposing the device.
The clock cam can record hi-def 720p video continuously or only when triggered by motion detection, even in the dark, and it can hold up to a 128GB card! The recorder will do a time and date stamp on every recorded file so you know exactly when something occurred. The videos can be reviewed on a Windows or Mac computer and does not require any fancy software; use your standard player or VLC media player to easily view all of your recordings. This spy cam can be battery operated for up to 8 hours of daylight recording or 3 hours when using night vision, so you can move it almost anywhere without needing an electrical outlet or leave it plugged into a powered outlet for continuous battery life and recording.

Q: I'm trying to set up the camera, and I've waited 4 minutes but nothing is showing up on my phones WiFi. What's going on?
A: There could be a few reasons for this, but there are some basic things to check, first. Make sure the camera is plugged in for power and that a formatted SD Card (containing no files) has been inserted for memory storage. Beyond that, there is also a reset button which would take care of most issues after holding it down for about ten seconds.
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: I can't see the camera over the internet what's going on?
A: A few reasons could be that your internet is down, your phone is not really connected to the WiFi of the camera, or a password was input incorrectly. TinyCam devices cannot operate on a WiFi with special characters in the password.
Q: I can see the camera remotely sometimes, and other times it looks choppy and not smooth what's going on?
A: This could be due to peak hours of internet use in your area, or just poor reception. Lower the stream quality of the video and this should make live streaming less choppy while not affecting the recording quality.
Q: I'm trying to set up this camera at a hotel, and there is WiFi but I can't see the camera on my phone, what can I do?
A: The most common reason would be the way WiFi access is available. Most hotels set up guest WIFI accounts. This doesn't necessarily mean that the camera won't work, but in most cases if Admin access is not available this is likely the reason that you can not access your camera on your cell phone. TinyCam devices cannot connect with a WiFi with a password that contains special characters.
Q: I set up the camera, but I don't want to use WiFi. Will it still work as a motion activated camera?
Q: Are files created in 1080p video?
A: No, they are recorded in 720p to the SD card. Only the live stream will come in at 1920 x 1080.
Q: Will recordings play on my Mac?
Q: Does this record audio?
A: No. It does not record audio.
Q: Does this record at night?
A: Yes, the device does have infrared IR's to help it see at night, about 6 meters from the camera.
Overall it works ok, but there are times it doesn't react to motion, no matter the sensitivity and it won't remotely connect if I leave the house.
Hi David, Give us a call Monday through Saturday 10am to 6pm CST @ 1-800-292-7748 and we would be happy to assist you and get you up and running.
I had a small issue with my first camera in the first week but customer service made sure I had a new clock on my desk a week later. Thank you!
I just setup the clock and am able to view it on my phone. I set the brightness and contrast to maximum and every now and then it goes back to the middle setting. Also the controls show an audio and microphone you can turn on but no audio is recorded.
Easy to use product that produces excellent video.
This was very easy to set up, and it has excellent imagery with normal viewing and the infrared for low light. I'm very happy with my purchase.
