Building on the success of the original CanCam external surveillance system launched in 2014, ESP introduces its latest model - a vandal-resistant version, which is ideal for use in vulnerable applications.

The new CanCam VR houses the standard CanCam within a steel, vandal-resistant casing to provide added protection and security and ultimately to prevent theft of the system or the removal of the SD storage card.  The metal casing which retains the CanCam is locked in place using security screws which are operated using the special tool that is supplied with the product.

CanCam is a battery operated, high resolution surveillance camera with integral PIR detector, SD card recording and black infra red illumination.  It is ideally suited for semi covert, instant deployment security operations and is designed for external or internal use.  It will detect movement and instantly record high quality images with time and date stamping, in all conditions day and night. 

Among the many user settings the image capture type and resolution is selectable - either video with audio up to HD720P or stills up to 8MP recording directly to the 4GB SD card supplied.  When the card is full, there is an over write option.  Alternatively it is possible to use higher capacity cards up to 32GB.  Recordings are taken from the removable SD card using windows media player for simple playback and transfer.  Recorded footage can also be viewed directly via a PC or TV.

The service life of the CanCam’s battery pack varies according to the resolution and image mode.  However, a plug-in power supply is included for more permanent use.  The camera has a high quality 6mm lens to match the detection angle of the PIR, is designed for pole or wall mounting and has an IP55 weatherproof rating.

Applications for the new CanCam VR are many and varied, including mounting in the rear of work vans to protect against the theft of valuable and expensive tools, use on construction site cabins, portable buildings and roadside containers used for highway maintenance.
