Wireless USB Camera Receiver
PC recording surveillance cameras offer an excellent alternative to security cameras that have traditionally hooked up to a TV set. The PC enabled cameras allow greater flexibilty in terms of managing and monitoring what it is being recorded. This USB wireless camera receiver allows a person to see what is being recorded from anywhere in the house with its wireless facilty.
Set-up of the Wireless USB Camera Receiver is surprisingly easy. All you need to do is install the software driver (included) on your desktop computer or laptop and then plug the wireless receiver into a USB port. The receiver automatically syncs up with most cameras in range. From there, all you need to do is open the program on your computer and you can then watch the camera’s recordings in real time.
One of the better features with this Wireless USB Camera Receiver is its ability to switch between up to four channels. So if you have four different surveillance cameras in the house or office, you can easily switch between them and know exactly what is going on in your house or office at anytime.
Another good feature is the ability to record the surveillance video to the computer’s harddrive. This is particularly useful when you want to keep several weeks or months worth of surveillance video in storage, just in case you need it.
For those who are afraid the Wireless USB Camera Receiver might require a very high-spec computer will be relieved to know that the device will run on any computer running Windows XP or Vista. Other requirements include an 80GB harddrive and at least 512MB of memory.
This camera receiver is nothing spectacular as there are others with greater performance available, but at a price of $57.20 (just under £30), it is an affordable way to keep tabs on their surveillance from anywhere in the home.
