ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT ARE PEOPLE USING THE SYSTEM FOR

The FlashCAM-880 was designed to deter anti-social behavior of all kinds such as graffiti, vandalism, illegal trash dumping and copper theft. In some situations, the system is used to deter prostitution and drug dealing.

WHAT KIND OF POWER DOES IT TAKE

The FlashCAM-880’s battery pack is powered by a Solar Panel. Under normal conditions, FlashCAM will operate indefinitely with about two hours of sun per day. An AC wall adapter battery charger is included with the system as a backup.

HOW DOES IT WORK

The FlashCAM-880 senses motion up to 100 feet away. When motion is detected the system starts taking high resolution digital photographs. A bright flash goes off (if it is dark), and a loud voice message warns the intruder to “leave the area now” and that his photograph is being taken. Photos are clear enough to identify vandals and capture a license plate number more than 250ft away in TOTAL DARKNESS.

WHAT DOES THE MESSAGE SAY?

Whatever you want. Your message can be up to 14 seconds long.

HOW DO YOU FIND OUT IF PICTURES HAVE BEEN TAKEN

Each system comes with a keyfob controller. Point the keyfob at the system and press a button. The FlashCAM will report the number of pictures and battery status.

HOW DOES THE WIRELESS DOWNLOAD WORK TO RETRIEVE THE PICTURES

The FlashCAM contains a wireless device server. Software included with the FlashCAM can then access the camera images onto the laptop from a range of about 75 feet.

COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENT

A laptop computer with 802.11b wireless capability and either Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 operating system.

HOW DO USERS MOUNT THE SYSTEM

The system comes with a Wall Mount. This is a heavy-duty bracket that can be mounted to utility poles or wooden studs using lag bolts, or cement walls using anchor bolts. A padlock is supplied to secure the FlashCAM and to prevent access to the bolts.

HOW DO YOU KEEP IT FROM BEING STOLEN OR BROKEN

The system has a ruggedized steel case, with a bullet resistant covering over the camera lens and flash. We recommend installing the system 18 to 20 feet high using a padlock for extra security (padlock included with the system).
