  • Displays a horizontal resolution of 300 lines (color) or 350 lines (black & white) Tired of constantly replacing video cassettes in your surveillance system VCR? You'll only have to replace tapes every 40 days with this affordable Real-Time/Time-Lapse VCR. Unlike standard VCRs, which record only a maximum of 6 or 8 hours, depending on the size tape you use, the Real-Time/Time-Lapse VCR offers 15 selectable recording speeds ranging from 2 to 960 hours. Record up to 24 hours of real-time video with audio or up to 960 hours of time-lapse video images on a single tape!

    This affordable, high-quality unit displays a horizontal resolution of 300 lines for color surveillance monitoring, or 350 lines for black & white surveillance monitoring. It can record either manually, with a press of the record button on the front panel, or it can be programmed to record at specific days and times. You can even connect it to your security system to begin instant recording when your alarm is triggered!

    Because the unit can go into its previous recording mode when AC power is cut off and restored, you'll even be able to control it with an X10 appliance module (there may be a delay of several seconds). For example, you could use the 4086V2 motion sensor and the 4005 X10 RF receiver to begin recording when someone enters a protected room.

    Other selectable features include a repositionable time/date stamp (or no time/date stamp at all), and an auto-repeat recording mode which rewinds the tape to the beginning and resumes recording when the end of the tape is reached. The unit can play back tapes at the same speeds in which they were recorded, or can be set for slow-motion or accelerated playback just by using a different playback speed.

    The Real-Time/Time-Lapse VCR comes with a full-featured remote control which requires 2 AA batteries (sold separately).

    Note: Time-lapse VCRs accept only baseband video signals that come from cameras, other VCRs, or the audio and video outs of a DVD player, cable box, TV or monitor. They can't accept modulated signals.
