PV-MU10 is equipped with PIR sensor. Unlike visual motion detection function that is also used in surveillance products, PIR detection operates with much lower power consumption that in turns significantly increases battery time in standby mode.
Wired / Wireless mouse modes
Lawmate PV-MU10 can be used as a wireless mouse which makes it easier to set up for covert recording. While in wireless mouse mode it can be placed in standby mode for 9 days, continuous recording will drain up the battery in just a couple of hours.
Alternatively, PV-MU10 can be connected to a PC USB port to make it look like a regular wired mouse. In this case, PV-MU10 is powered directly from the port is able to continuously record without battery power limitation.
Power source directly connected to a covert recording device in models like Lawmate PV-FM10, PV-AC30 or PV-AC35 offer clear advantage in prolonged in-house covert surveillance situations compared to products that due to their design cannot be easily connected to a power source during the covert recording session. (An example are wearable DVRs like a key fob PV-RC200HD2 or sunglasses DVR, button camera with a DVR etc.)
How to use?
- Place PV-MU10 in the environment where surveillance activity will take place
- Connect PV-MU10 with USB cable to PC if you wish to continuously record for a prolonged period of time
- Switch on the record button at the bottom of the mouse
- Modify the PV-MU10 angle as needed during recording
Take note PV-MU10 is not a functional computer mouse. It only looks like one.
