VCR TIME LAPSE QUESTIONS
- Can the DVR detect motion when the camera is placed behind a window or glass barrier?
- Yes, DVR senses pixel movement of the video signal from the camera. So a DVR (built-in or separate) will detect motion when the camera is placed behind a window or glass barrier
Since you can have the DVR record only upon motion, you can extend the recording time period which it is intended to cover. Each 1GB of memory will record up to 2.5 total hours of video.. However Since the camera and the DVR has to be on all the time, it will not extend the battery life. Typically, 1GB of memory will record up to 2.5 total hours of video (depending on the model).
Also, you can configure to eliminate certain areas of the picture from motion detection. Example would be deactivating lower 1/5 of the screen that would not capture creatures that enter only that part of the image.
Motion detection sensitivity is adjustable as well.

GENERAL QUESTIONS ON RECORDERS VCR-TIME-LAPSE
- Do your cameras work with different voltage for other countries?
- Most of our cameras come with a power adapter that can handle form 110V ~240V AC. In case you get a camera with direct AC plug-in such as clock radio camera we will include the 220V to 110V (60Hz) step-down converter.
