WIFI 1080P Pro Black Box Nanny Camera
Our Black Box Stealth Cam Just Got Better
Our new Black Box covert camera now has WIFI with infrared that allows the camera to see roughly up to 15 feet in low light environments and offers a powerful 8-10 hour battery coupled with a passive infrared (PIR) body heat motion sensor. This device has a superb 1080P video recording resolution at 25 frames per second, and all footage gets stored to a micro SD card that will need to be mounted inside, up to 128GB. This device is WIFI-enabled, giving you the ability to live stream video from your smartphone remotely. When you view the live stream, you can record footage right to the application or pull recordings right from the SD memory card directly to the application and from there either share it with others or save it to your phone's memory. Built into a black, small box that can blend in easily next to any electronic device or TV stand, people will think it's just an IR receiver for your home entertainment system.
How Does The WIFI 1080P Black Box Camera Work?
The spy cam is straightforward to use. Download the HDSmartIPC app from the Google or Apple store. Go to the WIFI settings on your smartphone and connect to the WIFI on the device (it will begin with AIxxxxxx). Next, you will open the app and wait a moment for the camera to appear within the device list ( you may want to swipe down to refresh the page if it doesn't show right away ). Using the app, you'll be able to sync the device with your home or business WIFI so you could see the high definition 1080p live stream from anywhere using your smartphone or tablet!
You can have multiple cameras at the same location or different locations, all viewable from the touch of a button. All the settings will take place on the application, with options to adjust the video recording resolution, stamp all videos with the date and time, turn on or off the PIR body heat motion sensor, and more! The smartphone app works with Android and iPhone, and you can watch the video recordings on a Windows or Mac computer. No special software is needed; use VLC media player or your standard video software.
Why Choose This Surveillance Camera?
Looking for a discreet camera that you can set and forget for a while? This is the ideal camera for you. It is small and discreet, so it blends into most environments. It is also great for when you want to be able to see what's going on in an area that's not supposed to see a lot of movement, as the body heat sensor will allow the device to conserve some battery and only trigger recordings when a warm body moves in front of it. Built-in IR allows this camera to see roughly up to 15ft in low light environments giving you the flexibility to record through the night.
This recorder holds up to a 128GB memory card and has about 8 to 10 hours of continuous battery life, or it can also be plugged in for continuous power with the included cable and USB wall charger. It'll take 10-15 hours to regain a full battery once it's been fully depleted. The app works on both iPhone and Androids to view a live stream or watch the recorded history off of the memory card at the same time, it's still mounted inside the device, or you can pull the SD card and use a Mac or Windows PC to review files using standard media players or VLC Media Player.

Low Quality vs High-Quality Hidden Camera Equipment Review
I am still having some challenges getting WIFI to work. The camera works well stand alone.
Thank you for your review! We would be happy to assist you in this matter. Please give us a call at 1-800-292-7748 between the hours of 10am to 6pm, CST, Monday through Saturday to get some tech support and get this unit established on the WiFi for you.
This was my first encounter with Spycentre. I was unsure which product would best fill my needs so I placed a call to the company. A tech representative named Alex Bauman took my call. He is not only professional and well versed in the product line but also extremely personable and patient in explaining the application and operation of the security devices. The shipment arrived as scheduled the next morning and was well protectively packed with a discreet return address. The high quality of Spycentre products is immediately recognizable as they are presented in sturdy well engineered boxes. The two devices I purchased are a pen recorder and a 180 degree nanny cam. Both came with straightforward simple instructions and I had each of them up and running within a matter of less than fifteen minutes. If you are thinking of purchasing any security or surveillance equipment do yourself a huge favor and contact Spycentre for expert advice and awesome follow-through.
Thanks for the review John! We appreciate the kind words!
The nanny cam has a ton of cool features and gives you lots of options in viewing and recording. However, I was really disappointed in the video quality, especially in low light conditions.
Thank you for the review! Please do keep in mind that the device is viewing through a dark plastic film to conceal the camera in the box. To improve the picture quality, you may need to turn on another light or even open any blinds to let in natural light, or you can actually switch the Live View stream to black and white video, which will help the device see a bit better.
The over the phone viewing factor is amazing as well as the picture quality. I would give it a 5 star if the battery was longer.
The versatility factor with this camera is awesome, can be placed anywhere since you can self conceal it. Took me a little bit to figure out the WiFi portion but once I got it set up it works perfectly.
