The Global Watchman is a remote area, autonomous surveillance unit that will keep watch on your holiday house and tell tales if anyone comes-a-knocking. It’s pitched as a long-distance, set-and-forget surveillance solution that will email you surveillance pictures via the GSM or CDMA phone networks. The rechargeable battery is good for 4-6 weeks and there’s an optional 42Ah battery as well.
It’s equipped with an infrared camera that can record still photos or video via a 1.3Mpixel camera. Above the camera is a bank of 50 IR LEDs to help throw some invisible light on the perps. The Watchman has 3 passive infrared sensors to detect people and to trigger the camera and there’s also a laser pointer to help you aim the camera exactly so you don’t get millions of pictures of the sky or next door’s bins.
Everything is recorded via a Compact Flash card so you can retrieve your images as well as have them emailed to you and it’s weather-proof so feel free to nail it to a tree. It’s available from Brickhouse Security for US$599.95 plus the pricing for the picture data sent over the cellular network.
The Global Watchman with Nightvision takes motion-activated surveillance pictures and lets you review them remotely. Utilizing global GSM and CDMA cellular networks, the Global Watchman transfers your surveillance photos to the Internet wirelessly.
