The all-in-one unit consists of a wireless camera and built-in motion sensor that can be wired directly to the existing electrical circuit. When motion is detected, the camera captures an image that can be permanently recorded on a VCR or PC for review and if needed to provide to law enforcement. The FloodCam sells for $79.99.
