All the ACTi cube cameras come with built-in passive infrared sensor (PIR) and with the terminal block for digital input and digital output (DI/DO). The built-in passive infrared sensor detects human movement by sensing temperature changes over the scene, and works even in the total darkness.
"PIR" stands for passive infrared and PIR Angle refers to the degree that the camera can sense movement. Cameras that have a large PIR Angle can detect movement faster and have a better chance of capturing the subject in the center of the frame as opposed to the edges like some lower quality cameras do.
PIR Event. When the PIR (passive infrared) detects heat and motion, the camera identifies this and goes into action.
An Ultrasonic sensor is a device that can measure the distance to an object by using sound waves. It measures distance by sending out a sound wave at a specific frequency and listening for that sound wave to bounce back. It is important to understand that some objects might not be detected by ultrasonic sensors.
All trail cameras support night shots nowadays. If you want your actions behind camera and camera itself to be covert, then go for Infrared invisible flash. However, IR flash will only support black & White pictures in the night.
Timelapse mode is a mode of operation in which the trail camera will take a picture based on an interval of time. The Browning trail camera packaging should have this included on a mini CD. If operating a PC that runs Windows install the software and then view anything captured through this.
No Glow Infrared Trail Cameras. No Glow IR cameras are also commonly referred to as blackout trail cameras or invisible flash trail cameras. The name originates from this camera's ability to illuminate an animal without the animal (or any other species in the area) detecting the flash.
These security game cameras will also transmit an image via text or email and can be found under Cellular Security Cameras. If you have a trespasser problem, the easiest fix is to use No Flash Infrared Trail Cameras. With a no glow security camera, the LED's in the infrared flash are completely invisible.
