Position this mini clock covert surveillance camera in your chosen location and then view live video on your mobile phone or tablet from wherever you may be! You might be at the office wanting to check on your pet at home, or perhaps you’re just downstairs and want to make sure the kids are playing OK upstairs, maybe you have an elderly relative in the next town and you want to check in on them every few hours. The uses for our WiFi cameras are pretty much endless!
Everything with regards to this covert camera system is controlled via the free app. You can set up the WiFi very easily in a couple of minutes (see our easy guide above) and you can choose if/how you want the mini clock camera to record – continuously, motion activated etc. Switch on the night vision from the app too, so that your camera will return decent video footage in dark and low light conditions or use the schedule to set the infrared to come on and off at the same time every day.
The clock is small, light and portable – dimensions are 9 x 6.5 x 5 (cm).
It can run from it’s own built in rechargeable battery for around 3-4 hours or you can simply connect to a mains socket using the cable and UK style 3 pin plug supplied. Using mains power means that you do not have to worry about the battery running low, you can just leave the camera in place to do it’s thing!
Micro SD Card
The WiFi Mini Clock Camera can utilise a micro SD card up to 128G in capacity and so you’ll have plenty of recording space. Please note, a micro SD card is not supplied unless purchased with the camera. Ensure that you use an SDHC card, class 10.
Don’t need WiFi?
If you do not require the WiFi functionality then we have the same version clock but without the WiFi, click here to jump straight to the non-WiFi version camera.
Don’t forget to remove the hatch on the back of the camera and take out the battery terminal connection cover before you first use the camera, otherwise the device will not be receiving any power and so will not work! Ensure you have charged the battery too and inserted a micro SD card if you wish to record. Lastly, make sure you have flicked the ON/OFF switch to the ON position.

Install the free app – Pro iCam – from either the app store (for apple devices) or the play store (for android devices).
Now tap the + sign in the top right corner to add a camera.
Enter the UID (Unique ID) manually or tap QR Code and scan the code if your phone has the facility to scan (this is the easiest option), the QR code to scan will be detailed on a label on the camera itself.
If you’re entering the UID manually then it must be entered exactly as it is on the label otherwise a connection will not be made. Any O you see in the UID is a zero, not the letter O.
The default password is shown in the manufacturers manual (it’s usually 8888 and you will be asked to change the password after connecting).
Now go to the WiFi Settings on your phone/tablet and find the camera UID in the router list (may take a couple of minutes to show in the list) and connect.
You can now go back to the Pro iCam app and after 3-4 minutes the message beneath the camera name should show as “Online”. Tap to view.
Then tap the Cog icon to the right of the camera name to enter the menu.
Tap “Device Settings” and then “WiFi Config”. Find your router in the list and you will then be prompted to enter your router password.
The camera will then reboot (again, this may take 3-4 minutes) and then show as “Online” again. Done!
You can now connect and watch live video when you’re out at the coffee shop, supermarket, office or even when you’re on holiday.
Remember, the quality/speed/smoothness of the video will be dependent upon the internet connection your mobile device is able to pick up and also the speed of the connection at the camera location. It also depends upon the resolution you have set, the higher the quality the more bandwidth required etc.
