    Works well, pictures and video are very clear. Battery life is short if there is a lot of video taken. Pluggin it in with included ac adapter solves this problem. However this then makes it more conspicious. Make sure to put this is a location that is hard to reach. If someone figures out what it is it can just be stolen and all the incriminating video with it.

    For a while, we’ve been looking for a way to monitor people working in our boat. We’ve never been able to pinpoint when some of our tools and miscellaneous items went missing.

    This device truly offers us the discretion we want to keep an eye on the different people who come and go by giving us the oportunity to weed the good from the bad contractors.

    Great quality video output. Very user friendly.

    my default software is able to play the videos that are captured with this unit, so I didn’t need to install any additional software of drivers. I just put the card in my card reader and everything is there. You do HAVE to connect the unit to your TV to set it up. There is a built in menu that must be setup before you can use it. You can set it to record all the time or motion sensor. You can even set the times it should record if you know who or what you want to check on. The setup is a little confusing, but not too difficult. Once it’s setup, it works really well. I set it up for motion sensing recording. The videos are just OK quality, about like most inexpensive surveillance cameras. If you know who you’re looking at, it’s easy to make out, sort of like a cell phone video recording.

    The unit is a little bigger than I expected, so it’s not really “hidden”. If you have an alarm system in your home, with motion sensors mounted inside, you can mount this and people might think it’s just another, larger, sensor.

    If you’re concerned about personal property, or need a nanny cam”, this will do the trick. I just think it’s expensive for what you get.

    This little thing does crystal clear surveillance. The owner’s manual barely covers the basics but it is well worth your time to experiment with it. One major omission from the manual – the unit must be connected to a monitor in order to set it up and aim it. I have a pocket TV with a video input that works perfectly for this – since these TV’s will be obsolete in February, you can probably pick one up CHEAP and use with the camera. I love the motion detect feature – you can adjust the sensitivity and monitor only the “action” that you are looking for. Also love the playback from the unit or from computer.

    This spy cam is so simple to use and it takes great videos on an SD memory card. You can put the camera anywhere or mount it on the wall and it will record video for over a month. The videos are in 30 second segments by date and time on the SD card. It connects to the TV with one simple cable (supplied) for viewing and you can fast forward and rewind like a VCR with buttons on the back. It can be used plugged in or can run on batteries. This would be a good nanny cam or in an area you need to monitor for security purposes. The only bad part is that it doesn’t record video well in low light. So, this is a day time cam.

    I have been playing with this video camera for two weeks and I have some thoughts:

    PROS- Good look from the front as far as being covert. Looks like a traditional motion detector to most people. Really good picture from about 3 feet away to 6 feet, then gets a little blury but still okay, not bad, still on the pro side of this story. Removeable card is handy if you do a permanent install. Has a mount on the back that I want to try soon.

    CONS – Battery drain is quick! You will need to use the AC for recording. Batteries are just for when you are moving it around. Lights on the back cannont be disabled, I put white electrical tape over them. Need a large data card to get decent video storage, I guess this really depends on your application but the included card was too small for me.

    Overall, I was satisfied for the $200 price.

    The Defender recorder does a decent job as long as you plan to plug it in for power. Just don’t plan on using battery power, or you will be changing them every two days. The only real functional quirk I’ve run into is that to check the video, I need to unplug it from the power (obvious) to take it over to the TV. But if it is turned off (or unplugged) while recording, the manual says some video can be corrupted. Yet as you approach it, it will turn on from motion detection (sort of an awkward catch 22). Anyway, I can live with that I think, just something to be aware of. What really sucked is that I paid for upgraded premium shipping, but the vendor (JUSTBUYITHERE) took two weeks to ship. I selected the vendor, because they were near by my Southern California location. I thought paying extra for priority shipping meant I would have it in two or three days, but I didn’t receive the item for over two weeks. They did ship priority mail, just not for over a week! Some vendors get it and some just don’t. All I can say is “JUSTBUYITHERE” just BLOWS! I won’t be doing any further business with them, and I recommend you don’t.

    Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R30WWVA7T4S40I There is a lot to like about the Stealth DVR by Defender. It offers an affordable way to covertly capture and record the events of an area. While such a device may not discourage criminals it certainly may make it easier for them to get apprehended. The Stealth DVR looks like any other motion detector, except for the small pinhole camera located at the bottom. Once activated the camera will record (with pretty good image quality) for a set amount of time. This ideal for use in a nursery (nanny cam), an office building (are the cleaning people stealing the change out of your desk) or other areas where you have lingering suspicions.

    Pros

    - Good video quality (see the video portion of the review)

    - Multi-position mounting bracket

    - Lots of control on how and when you want the camera to record

    - The main power source will likely be the AC adapter, but the camera can take 4 AA batteries as a back-up.

    - Comes with a 2G memory card

    Areas for improvement

    - The reason for a 1/2 star reduction t is that it does take some time and patience to get the camera set-up correctly. The manual is helpful, but you may need to read through it a couple of times.

    - As other mentioned – this is a camera for a well lit area – once you have a significant reduction in light you start to have issues.

    A few others have mentioned that they are disappointed in the lack of sound. For me it is not that big of a deal. If you are going to use this camera the video capture is going to be far more useful than the sound emitted.

    - The video format is not Mac compatible – I used the Elgato 10020840 Video Capture Device (White) to capture and transfer the video to my Mac.

    Final Verdict – While the set-up can be a bit tricky the Stealth DVR provides impressive video quality. The Stealth DVR is a effective motion activated security camera.

    4 1/2 stars

    that the programming is a little clunky.

    Why four stars — The unit delivers good quality images and if you set the motion detection level correctly you can get a lot of time coverage on the included memory card. Bought the unit specifically to monitor a location based on movement in that area. Unit has performed flawlessly.

    How it could earn a fifth star — the programming is a little complicated but manageable with some patience. As remarked by others the manual could be written a little more helpfully. The biggest issue (for me) is that you have to rely on an external monitor to program the settings. This means that either you have a portable tv to connect at the location you are placing it or that you have to program it where your monitor is. If you do the latter you place it at the location and do some testing to determine whether the settings are working as desired. This is done by removing the memory card, downloading the images to a computer and viewing how it is recording.

    A small thing that would get it an additional half star would be if the mounting bracket had two ball joints instead of one which would give it a little more flexibility in adjustment the way in which the unit can be angled from its bracket.

    Pros: Discreet, Sensitive, Easy To Set Up, Accurate

    Cons: Adapter Wire not white, Adapter Wire too short

    Best Uses: Spying, Use your imagination

    Describe Yourself:Do-It-Yourself

    Overall… it’s a great Device for Discreet spying and monitoring where you like. You can just pop in the SD card in to your card reader and the footages taken starts playing with Windows Media Player. I just wish it had sound as well, But I guess it would use double the memory, so I can see why they did not incorporate sound into it. The video Quality is Great. And for $250 it’s a no brainier. If you are into gadgets and detective work This is definitely a must have. As I mentioned before the adapter wire is too short, though you can just cut the wire and extend it with another wire and use Electric tape to seal it.
