PV-DY20i - DIY Covert Camera Specification
That’s right, a do-it-yourself covert camera system that has been specifically designed to allow you to build a camera system of your own using the DY20i DVR. The 10cm ribbon cable allows you to install this compact system into any hide of your choice.
The recorder element is built into the control block; this is also the location of the high-quality AGC microphone. The 3mp camera is placed at the end of the ribbon cable and measures just 9mm x 9mm x 9mm!
The new PV-DY20i also features Wi-Fi & IP connectivity to either an Android or an iOS smart device application allowing full user control and live preview (video & audio) from the camera from anywhere. The camera is also fitted with a one-touch operation on the device so you can choose to operate it manually or via the Wi-Fi connection.
For even more convenience, the DY-20i hidden camera is also supplied with the PI-RF50 REMOTE CONTROLLER.
To playback the recorded video you can connect the camera to your computer with the supplied USB cable or place the SD card into a standard card reader to playback via your computer. Alternatively, use the Wi-Fi connectivity & LawMate app to view or even download the video remotely (P2P only).
HD Resolution Capability
HD refers to high definition or 720p/1080p resolution, 1080p is known as Full HD. This resolution is a significant step up from 480p which can be seen in the image (on the right).
The first figure (1920) refers to horizontal pixels and the second figure (1080) denotes vertical resolution. The simple difference between HD and SD images is the number of pixels contained in the image

H.264 Video Compression
H.264 is a video compression for digital video recorders to use when reducing video file sizes without losing resolution in the captured footage. H.264 standard compresses the footage so that only half the storage space is used however the same video quality is maintained. Advanced Video Coding (AVC) uses Macroblocks to process information in 16x16px blocks.
Motion Detection Benefits
Motion detection improves your home security as a device can lay dormant to avoid filling memory cards with wasted still footage and will activate when motion is detected.
Alongside avoiding wasted memory it will also save on energy usage and is more convenient when reviewing footage.
