Battery-powered and weatherproof, and highly compact, the Optex WATCHMAN can be quickly set up anywhere indoors or outdoors. And featuring 32 ft of LED-illuminated night vision, it can be used at any time of day, even in complete darkness. It captures video, photos, or time lapse photography upon motion detection, which can be set up using the 1.5″ LCD on the bottom.

Capture video in up to 720p HD resolution at 20 fps, which plays back slightly faster than real time, as is common in surveillance footage. Capture 8MP photos in bursts of 1-9, or time lapse photography in 5 second intervals for up to 5 minutes (300 seconds). There’s also a built-in mic that can be set up to capture sound when recording video, and an SD memory card slot supporting up to 32GB SD cards for storing everything. (SD card is not included)  The WATCHMAN is powered by four size C batteries, not included, and can alternatively be powered by an optional 6 VDC power adapter.
