7. Micro SD mem card slot (4gb to 32gb for IP camera video capturing, not included) & SIM card slot for cell backup (SIM card is Included)
When a Micro SD mem card is installed, the IP camera will detect movement and record a video clip onto the SD mem card. The IP camera detects movement when a pixelization change in its image occurs which can be anything from a lighting change & shadows, a person walking, or an overhead fan running are just a few examples of what can trigger this type of camera sensor. This pixelization detection will not trigger any type of alarm or notification, the captured video clip is only stored on the SD mem card. Currently the only way to view these motion captured video clips, is to remove the SD mem card and place it into a computer to review the clips that are date time stamped. When the SD mem card is full, the new video clips will overwrite the oldest ones. This pixelization detection built into the iota IOP camera is not to be confused with the iotas PIR Motion sensor located below the camera lens. (See # 3 on parts identification image)
8. Ethernet port
9. AC Power
An AC power adapter is required to connect to a AC wall outlet. Be sure only to use an adapter with the appropriate AC voltage rating to prevent component damage. DC 12V 2A switching power output adapter is used to power the iota.
In addition to the adapter, there is a rechargeable battery inside the iota, which serves as a backup in case of a power failure. During normal operation, the AC power adapter is used to supply power to the iota and keep its battery charged.
Slide the Battery Switch to the ON position to activate and charge the battery. It takes approximately 72 hours to fully charge the battery.
