- Wide 90-Degree Angle View – This charger camera lens captures video footage at a high, 90° angle.
- Motion Activated Recording – It uses motion sensors that when triggered, start recording footage into SD card.
- Time Saving Loop Recording – Records videos into SD card continuously, meaning oldest videos get overwritten by the new ones.
- AC Adapter – Allows to record non-stop as it doesn’t use batteries. The whole unit is designed to be plugged into a wall, so it uses AC power.
Previously, we’ve reviewed an iPhone charging dock spy camera unit that is a perfect fit for those who own an Apple product. This time, we’re looking at the USB charger spy camera that works not only with phones, but essentially any USB device that needs charging.
These USB spy cameras are using AC power instead of a battery. As the nature of the design suggests, you use it in electrical outlets anyway, so there’s no point in having batteries on such unit.
Plug it in, and leave it recording at 90-degree angle. It will capture video as well as audio of what’s happening in the room. For audio, you’ll need to enable this feature inside the app as it’s not setup for audio surveillance by default.
It can be used to recharge your phone as well as video surveillance.
2 Modes of Recording
- Loop Mode – In this mode, the USB charger camera records continuously. Using loop recording, it overwrites the files so you never need to replace the SD card, and can let it record non-stop.
- Motion activated – As the name suggests, it starts recording once movement is detected. This way, you save on storage space, as camera doesn’t need to record everything.
On top of that, motion sensors can trigger a push notification to your phone once the movement is detected. This way, you can log in to your Wifi router remotely and observe video surveillance footage in real time.
This USB secret camera doesn’t look out of place in an ordinary environment. As long as USB is a very common connection, people always have one or more USB chargers at all times. It makes perfect sense to have it plugged into wall. But the benefit you get, is that this charger is also a camera that records HD video discreetly, without anyone knowing.
