How to view the recorded video files?
This camera records to a micro sd card. After your pet has returned with their video footage, you can connect the camera directly to your Windows based PC to view the recorded video files. Or you can remove the micro SD card and insert it into a micro SD card reader (if available).
What format does Mr Petcam record in and how do I view my pets videos?
Our camera records in AVI format which plays back on most Windows computers that have Windows Media Viewer (WMV) installed. If you do not have this program, it is a free download you can obtain from Microsoft's website.
How long does the battery last?
With a full battery charge, Mr Petcam can record continously for over one hour. If you enable motion activation mode, it will only record video when it senses motion. This can greatly extend the battery life of Mr Petcam as it is not recording continously but only when there is movement. In motion activation mode, battery life can exceed eight hours or sometimes longer depending on how active or unactive your pet is.
Can the camera be used for other purposes?
Yes. Mr Petcam is a very versatile little DVR (Digital Video Recorder) with many uses beyond that of just POV (point-of-view) pet recordings.
Is it waterproof?
New for 2021, we are now including with each order our new waterproof housing and 360 degree mounting bracket. Mr Petcam can be used with or without the waterproof housing. There are now two methods of attaching Mr Petcam to most dog and cat collars and harnesses.
Does it work on dogs too?
Yes it does and many of our customers attach Mr Petcam to their dogs with hilarious results. One thing to mention however is that cats in general move more slowly and gracefully than dogs. Less running etc. Cats also usually turn their heads less frequently or abruptly. This creates more stable and clear video results. However, many of our customers use Mr Petcam on their dogs with great results!
