This HD infrared MMS DVR wildlife camera will take photos or videos and then send an email or MMS picture message to your PC or mobile whenever it's motion sensor is triggered. It has built-in GSM mobile messaging that uses a standard SIM card and is ideal for capturing shots of wildlife, fly-tipping, vandalism or any sort of covert surveillance in remote areas where mains power or an internet connection is not practical.
It's infrared LEDs (940nm) are invisible to the human eye so it is ideal for covert surveiilance.
The remote wildlife camera takes 4 AA batteries (8 with external power pack) and has a super low standby current (0.3mA) giving an incredible 3 months standby battery life (dependant upon activity) and an Ultrafast trigger of only 1 second.
The wildlife DVR has a motion detection & infrared with no flash to disturb the animals or alert the trespassers / fly-tippers etc. It can take date & time & temperature stamped 12MP digital stills WITH full colour VGA video simultaneously and store the data on an SD card (not included). You can then view the images via your TV (using a AV lead) or PC (using a USB cable). It also has a time lapse function that can take a still from a time period between 1 second and 24 hours.

I have tried it a couple of times and now works well (just what it says on the tin) - excellent (and quick) customer service from Richard at Fly On The Wall to get me round some setup issues - thank you Richard Review by Kathryn Dodington

I don't intend to use it for wildlife - my plan is to put it on a narrowboat - moored on the River Wey - and for it to send me MMS Messages (with picture of course) if someone breaks in. I have had someone steal the fenders from the boat recently but I am more concerned about someone breaking in which seems to be far too prevalent these days. I suppose I hope it doesn't send me any messages at all but I will test it and update this review.
4 Star so far but maybe 5 if I catch a burglar.
