Today's tech review talks about things that might happen on the down-low, as we take a look at the Logitech Spy Camera Clock, which is a camera hidden in a desk clock. How awesome is that?
Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.
What You Need to Know
- The clock/camera only needs power; it's wireless and transmits to a receiver that you also have to plug in
- You then plug in this receiver via USB to a computer
- Whenever the camera detects motion, it records to your computer
- This means you have to have your computer on whenever you want to monitor your area; there is no external storage
- The playback works like an editing program where you just drag around to move to different times and it also automatically skips areas with no footage
- Videos are 640x480 in the highest resolution and they are all separate Windows Media clips, which are about one and a half megabytes per ten seconds
- You can also watch your camera live online
- You just click on the camera you want to view and it's only a delay of about 13 seconds
- WiLife Platinum is necessary if you want more advanced online features
- You have to pay a minimum of $80 a year, but that includes remote playback, so you can search all your videos on the internet
- Text message or email alerts
- You can also store videos online
