Why should I buy a FarmCam 360?
If you need an outdoor camera at a location where you want a 360-degree view around the camera. It also comes with a rechargeable battery that allows using the camera where you don’t have mains power. How does it work?
FarmCam 360 needs Wifi / Internet access to setup and to be able to view live video from the camera in your smartphone through the FarmCam 2.0 app, which you download from the Appstore or Google Play. (The same app that is used for FarmCam HD and FarmCam Mobility). Can the camera work without Wifi / Internet access?
To setup and control the camera, access to Wifi / Internet is required. Once the camera is set up, it can both record and trigger an alarm / pre-recorded message when it detects motion – without Internet access. That is, it is possible to use the camera in a place where you do not have Internet access to deter intruders through the camera’s built-in speakers and, and by taking out the memory card from the camera to view recorded clips on your computer. However, you will not be able to control / access the camera through your smartphone without the camera having an Internet connection. How long will the battery last? What charging options are available?
FarmCam 360 has a battery that depending on usage can last between 1-4 weeks without needing recharge. The camera sends you a notification about low battery level when it reaches 10 %. For continuous power, the camera can be powered with the supplied 230V power adapter, (made for outdoor use – IP44). The camera can also be charged with the FCM SolarCharger solar panel, (available as an accessory). Does the camera record? If yes – does it record all the time or only during motion?
The camera has a smart thermal sensor (PIR) that detects movement at 10 m. Upon motion detection, the camera starts recording on the memory card (included) and sends your phone a notification. Is it possible to talk through the camera?
Yes, the camera has a built-in speaker that allows you to talk to the person in front of the camera. You can also let the camera’s built-in speaker play a pre-recorded message or a deterrent alarm when it detects motion. How do I install the camera?
