Sil­van Aus­tralia has re­leased a 3G Selecta High-Tech widean­gle, mo­tion-ac­ti­vated se­cu­rity cam­era, which uses mo­bile net­works to send im­ages of wrong­do­ers to your phone or email.

De­signed to counter the ris­ing lev­els of theft and van­dal­ism of ru­ral, re­mote and ur­ban prop­er­ties, the Selecta 3G High-Tech se­cu­rity cam­era is also suit­able for deal­er­ships, stor­age bays and busi­nesses.

Selecta gen­eral man­ager Michael Frost says the abil­ity to iden­tify in­trud­ers or num­ber plates makes for eas­ier po­lice pros­e­cu­tion and the re­cov­ery of stolen items.

The Selecta High-Tech se­cu­rity cam­era also acts as a de­ter­rent, he says: “Even the lo­cal knowl­edge that a se­cu­rity cam­era is in po­si­tion of­ten acts as a de­ter­rent to un­wel­come vis­i­tors.”

The unit fea­tures a broad-an­gle lens, giv­ing it a 100-de­gree field of view, and comes with a mount­ing strap and the op­tion of a per­ma­nent fix­ing bracket.

All the ac­tiv­ity is recorded to a 3G mi­cro mem­ory card and the im­ages are stored and emailed di­rect to two mo­bile phones or in­ter­net de­vices.

There is a ca­pac­ity for 5600 im­ages to be stored for ref­er­ence via an op­tional SD mem­ory card and the cam­era will also up­date daily with the num­ber of pho­tos or pic­tures taken, the tem­per­a­ture, the mem­ory avail­able and the per­cent­age of bat­tery charge avail­able.

The Selecta cam­era records in­for­ma­tion both day and night, with a 30m range of view in low light.

It op­er­ates off four or eight AA bat­ter­ies, while a small so­lar­pow­ered op­tion is avail­able. The cas­ing is IP54 rated and dust­proofed for out­door use.

“At our rec­om­mended re­tail price of $499, the new Selecta wide-an­gle mo­tion-ac­ti­vated se­cu­rity cam­era with 3G avail­abil­ity is a very in­ex­pen­sive de­fence against losses through theft or as­so­ci­ated busi­ness or per­sonal losses that in­vari­ably run to thou­sands of dol­lars in value,” Frost says.

“Busi­ness and prop­erty own­ers need to arm them­selves with a de­vice that records in­tru­sions, cap­tures the on­site ac­tiv­ity by thieves, and al­most in­vari­ably de­liv­ers in­for­ma­tion that will be cen­tral to solv­ing a theft or dam­age in­ci­dent.

“In short, an ac­tiv­ity ac­ti­vated and record­ing de­vice of this na­ture is now a rec­om­mended at­tach­ment for many types of farm, life­style or busi­ness premises.”
