  • Q: How long does a fully charged battery last recording?  (9 Answers)

    By Dickg56 

    • Best answerReally depends how often the unit is triggered. External temperature (cold mainly) has some effect as well. My porch cam lasts about 30 days. It’s triggered about 30 to 40 times per day. Another one of my cams lasts 60 days... another one 3 months ( much much less traffic). If your camera is in a less than convenient location, consider the solar panel charger. Changing batteries is a pain after awhile. Especially if you have 4 or 5 running out at different times. You tend wait until all of them expire and change them all at once (that is if you have extra hot swappable batteries charged and ready to swap).. it’s not an inconvenience the first couple of months, but trust me, you’ll either half way keep up with it, get a second pair of batteries, purchase an extra long 30’ cord from Amazon and run it to an indoor outlet, or best bet - get the solar panel chargers. Hope this helps.

    • Best answerThe camera is wireless, no cords used. It comes with a battery but you have to purchase a battery charger or buy new batteries each time. I would highly recommend buying one extra battery to have on hand so if a camera battery goes down you can immediately replace it and keep your security in place. It depends on how long you want to keep your videos as to whether you pay a subscription fee or not.

  • Q: So it is only on when it detects motion?  (7 Answers)

    By Eeejay 

    • AYes. Battery is effectively off when camera is off. You will notice that the battery of your most active camera drains faster than the others. But that said, the battery of my most active camera (triggers several times a day) lasts about 3 months.
