X10 recently announced its new FloodCam Kit that is designed to automatically shine lights on intruders and record their actions on a TV, VCR, or PC. The wireless device promises to combine the best of surveillance and automation technology in a system that helps users protect their businesses.
According to the company, its FloodCam, which looks much like an ordinary floodlamp, can be connected to existing outdoor wiring in minutes. A hidden control panel lets users adjust the light's settings to detect motion at all times or only after dark. It may be also set to activate the cameras by light, motion or both.
The complete FloodCam kit includes a built-in motion sensor and wireless camera, wireless video only receiver, a VCR commander kit and EagleEye motion sensor. The kit is available for $129.99 at www.x10.com or by calling 1-800-675-3044. The XRay Vision software is available for free at www.x10.com/xrv (requires USB Video Capture Adapter).
