- Text the mobile number to turn the system on.
- The camera will then stream 24/7 until you text again and switch it off.
- The transmitter will send the stream upto 5KM to the receiver.
- The receiver plugs into your router or network and you will be able to see the stream on any device. Also you will have the option to share the LIVE footage with the world….it is that easy.
We use the best technology to give you the best results. Here is a diagram to explain how it works in a bit more detail:
- The camera streams all the time, but it is controlled by texting (1) the SMS switch (2).

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need power at the camera end?
No, the system is designed to be powered by a battery and the battery which is topped up by solar power. This gives you ultimate flexibility.
How long will the battery last?
It all depends on the camera and the hours you want to run the camera. Normally, if you leave the system on all the time, it will last a week. However, it is good to turn the camera on and off to conserve power. The solar will gently top up the power on the battery.
How high up the tree do I need the solar?
The solar panel can go as high as you like upto 10m. It is better to place it pointing in a clear space in a tree.
Does the system only work when there is movement?
The camera is designed to stream all the time when it is on. If you choose an NVR, you can set this to record only when there is movement
What cameras can you use with the system?
We have designed it for the cameras we use. The standard is the outdoor 2MP IP camera. However, you can select the camera from the drop down menu. For example, you could choose a small mini dome camera that can be placed in an owl box.
Can I use an existing camera with the system?
The cameras we supply are 100% compatible. Please contact us and we can confirm what type of camera would be compatible.
Do I need the internet to work?
No, you can run the system straight into a router, but you don’t need the internet to view it locally. If you wanted to see the footage remotely then you will need a good broadband connection ie 100mbps. (BT infinity)
Can I stream directly from the router?
Yes, you can allow your router to push the video onto the web. You may need someone to look at your router to allow it to share the video stream. Streaming directly is perfect for one or two private visitors. If you want the signal to be viewed by many then you should consider a LIVE streaming service. This will allow you to push the HD video and embed into a website etc.
