How Does It Work?
Does Cell Cam Pro use 3G Cellular?
Yes. If the camera is too far away from a Wifi network source, the Cell Cam Pro Cellular Converter will convert the Wifi network to a Cellular Wireless Internet connection. Cell Cam Pro Cellular can be added to existing cell phone plans as a data-only device. Cell Cam Pro only uses and recommends Verizon Wireless because of their coverage and support. If the existing plan uses another carrier, available lines are available through Insight Commander Systems, Inc.
How is Cell Cam Pro powered?
Cell Cam Pro plugs into any common household outlet. It has 25 ft (7.5m) of total cable length, and the cable is weatherproof so you can use it outside your home.
Many modern homes have an exterior outlet, but you can also use Cell Cam Pro if you don’t have an outlet outside your home. For example, you can plug Cell Cam Pro into a light socket adapter, which converts a porch or landscaping light into a power outlet. Whichever installation method you choose, make sure to install your camera in accordance with building and installation codes where you live.
Cell Cam Pro can also utilize existing 12-volt landscape light wiring. Just add Cell Cam Pro to the wiring just like another light in your yard.
The Cell Cam Pro Solar Module is available for those areas where conventional or low-voltage electricity is not available or practical. The Cell Cam Pro Solar Module is completely self-contained, including the solar panel, battery, controllers, and all wiring necessary so that you only need to plug Cell Cam Pro into the solar module instead of an outlet or connect to landscape wiring.
Whether using household power, landscape power, or solar power, you don’t need to worry about changing batteries or losing your video feed if they die while you’re on vacation. It stands guard 24/7 and sends alerts about the activity outside your home.
Is Cell Cam Pro weatherproof?
Yes. Cell Cam Pro is designed for permanent outdoor use, and it has been tested against typical environmental factors such as dust particles and precipitation. Operational temperature range is -4° to 104°F (-20° to 40°C).
Installing Cell Cam Pro
How easy is Cell Cam Pro to install?
Unlike other outdoor cameras that may require complicated hubs and professional installation, Cell Cam Pro is simple to install yourself. All you need to do is choose a good spot, and mount the camera on a wall, fence, post, or even directly on the house or building. The Cell Cam Pro Mounting post is also available to mount Cell Cam Pro.
Cell Cam Pro plugs into a regular household outlet; no electrician needed. Merely mount Cell Cam Pro on anything suitable and plug it into a household outlet, landscape wire, or the Cell Cam Pro Solar Module.
Any tips on where I should install my Cell Cam Pro?
If you’re looking to protect your home against intrusion, point your camera where thieves are most likely to gain entry: front door, back door, windows, and garage. The most effective area to install Cell Cam Pro is 30-40 feet away from the house or building facing the doors, driveways, gates, and other point of entry.
Cell Cam Pro’s 130° wide-angle view lets you keep an eye on a large area of your home.
If the sun shines directly into the lens of the camera, it can affect video quality. To reduce glare, you can install your Cell Cam Pro 7 to 10 feet (2 to 3 meters) above the ground, and point it below the horizon.
Security and Privacy
Does Cell Cam Pro have night vision?
Better still, Cell Cam Pro has its own high-intensity floodlight to not only light up the dark, but also to frighten intruders away. Most intruders hate light and immediately give up.
Cell Cam Pro uses an IR cut filter during the day to help keep colors accurate. This filter is switched off at night to enable light sensitivity and deliver detailed video. Cell Cam Pro also knows the difference between a burst of light and sunlight, so Cell Cam Pro won’t be fooled if someone tries to blind it with a flashlight. It'll stay in Night Vision mode so you can see who’s in front of the camera.
Is Cell Cam Pro tamper- and theft-resistant?
Cell Cam Pro’s stainless steel enclosure makes vandalism and theft difficult if not impossible. The intruder’s pictures have already been sent to the Cloud so further tampering will be useless.
There are some optional steps you can take to secure Cell Cam Pro. To prevent the camera from being unplugged. If you’re concerned about the cord being cut, you can keep both the camera and cord out of reach or better yet, buried in the ground. It does not need to be too deeply buried, just enough to keep it out of sight.
Can Cell Cam Pro’s video footage be destroyed, or viewed by an intruder?
No. Unlike security cameras that rely on local storage like a hard drive or SD card that can be tampered with, Cell Cam Pro’s video footage is streamed securely to the Cloud. Image history is stored in the Cloud, and there’s nothing an intruder can do about it. If the camera is stolen or damaged, you can go back and see what happened.
