This magnetic-switch based remote control switches a camera controller between two states:
- Standby, where the camera controller will last for several months before the battery becomes exhausted
- On, where the camera is switched on and is transmitting video and audio
The battery has a long life and is user changeable. The camera may be controlled from up to 10 metres away using an open public frequency band. Software prevents electrical noise for switching on the camera when not required.
The remote, which is 60x40x15mm may be attached, in seconds to a door way, cupboard, safe, drawer, window etc using double sided sticky pads.
