Designed for a customer who requires high quality recording but at an affordable price and is an ideal VCR replacement.

Motion Detection extends the life of the cameras and SD Cards by only recording when their is something to record. Their is no need to record empty buses, and yet it is always in viewing mode, ready to record instantly if something happens.

The Plug & Play NightOwl can be installed by a customer into a vehicle without incurring additional installation costs in minutes, either windsheild or bulkhead mounted. Addition NightOwls can also be installed in the same bus with a 2 or 3 way power socket adaptor to the cigarette lighter I.e. pointing down the aisle of the Bus, forward facing or at the stop arm.

“Buddy” NightOwl has features such as High Definition, SD card up to 64GB (no moving parts) motion detection, night vision, built in screen to help position the camera view to the desired location. Video is recorded onto a SD card which has the added benefit of no moving parts and also makes transferring the data to a computer very easy via a SD card reader which comes with every order. The video can be viewed via windows media player so no addition software installation is required.

With 6 LED light built in the NighOwl takes HD quality video in the dark as well as in daylight. The new motion detector sensor option means that the unit will not start recording until the passengers get on the bus which eliminates continuous recording and prolongs the life of the unit.

The "Buddy" NightOwl now allows bus operators who until now have not fitted a mobile video surveillance unit to their vehicles due to budget limitations the opportunity to experience the benefits that a mobile video camera brings to their operation.
