Specifications & Dimensions
Overview: The Night Guard Home
Surveillance System (NG-100) helps to protect you, your family, and your home.
The Night Guard NG-100 is a state-of-the-art, outdoor
motion-sensitive system for use in residential or commercial applications. The
system features a unique motorized lamp and detection circuit that automatically
rotates to cover an area of up to 30' in a 200° radius. It also
enables the user to monitor, record and play back video or still image footage
on any Windows PC. The Night Guard Home
Surveillance System lets you install one to four of the combination motion
sensor light & video cameras (767NGSL1,
sold separately) on your home and the built-in infrared sensors allow the light
and camera to rotate 200°, covering the same area as three fixed lights/cameras.
You can record images from up to four Night Guard Home Surveillance Systems to
any Windows based PC without any service plans or fees. The Night Guard Home
Surveillance System includes one sensor light & camera assembly (NG-SL-1), one
wireless USB receiver (NG-USB-R1) and Software Installation Disc, along with mounting and
Note: The Night Guard Home Surveillance System is a
personal home-monitoring system that requires no service plan.
Sensor Light & Camera Unit: The Sensor Light & Camera Unit
features a motion-activated 150-watt halogen light and built-in camera which
operate both day and night. 3 infrared sensors allow the camera & light to track
movement at up to 30' in a 200° radius. The
built-in camera will display still-images and video onto your PC via a wireless 2.4GHz connection,
using the supplied USB receiver. The Sensor Light & Camera Unit provides
adjustable brightness, saturation, and color.
Note: The sensor light has a passive
infra-red system with three sensors. One sensor points straight out, one to
the right, and one to the left. These sensors detect movement from a heat
signature given off from all forms of life and moving objects. Be careful
not to mount the sensor lamp near items that move normally as they may
unintentionally trigger the system. This would include a close tree that may
move in front of the sensor during a heavy wind. Any moving object has the
potential of triggering the system. This is not necessarily a problem but if
the system is set to auto record you may have additional files that have
been recorded of a tree blowing in the wind.
Wireless USB Receiver: The wireless USB receiver plugs into your
Windows-based PC. The USB receiver provides a digital 2.4GHz wireless connection
between your PC and the security system's Sensor Light & Camera Unit. This
allows video and still-images detected by the Sensor Light & Camera Unit to be
sent wirelessly to your computer. The wireless USB receiver has a transmission
range of 250' from the Sensor Light & Camera Unit.
Note: The wireless USB receiver must remain in the same USB port
on your computer. If it is removed or changed to a different USB port, the
software installation process will have to be done over. And additional
wireless USB receiver (767NGUSBR1,
sold separately) can be purchased to connect to a secondary computer.
Software Installation Disc: The included software disc must be
installed before connecting the wireless USB receiver to your PC. Once
installed, the included software allows you to save still-image and video
detected from the Sensor Light & Camera Unit to your PC, via the wireless USB
receiver. You can set the Night Guard Home Surveillance System to automatically
or manually record still and video images. Recorded files will be saved to
C:/Video. The software also provides alarm and view-mode functions.
Note: The included software supports Windows 98, 2000, XP, Vista (32-bit & 64-bit), and
Windows 7. Not compatible with Mac.
Auto Recording: The Auto Recording function automatically records an
image for approximately 12 seconds once motion is detected from the passive
infrared sensors in the sensor light & camera unit.
Alarm: When the alarm feature is enabled, a tone will be played
through your computer's speakers when the sensor light & camera unit are
activated. The volume of this warning depends on the computer's volume.
View-Modes: You can view a single image on your PC from the sensor
light & camera unit or a quad-view (4-images) from multiple connected sensor
light & camera units. The background of any triggered sensor will illuminated
Red when the sensor is triggered.
Installation: The Sensor Light & Camera Unit can simply replace a
current exterior light and be installed in a standard electrical box. The
wireless USB receiver plugs directly into a USB port of your Windows-based
computer, while the installation disc must be inserted into your PC's
CD/DVD-drive to install the included software.
