Wise Eye Standalone GPRS Camera

By Andrew Liszewski

Here’s yet another video camera that will appeal to the amateur and even professional spies of the world. The Wise Eye EVO570 is a standalone camera unit that actually broadcasts its video signal on the GPRS cellular network allowing anyone to monitor the video feed with a cellphone or PDA. It even has 2-way audio communication allowing you to hear what’s going on in the video or talk to the people you’re seeing.

What’s particularly interesting is that the camera also includes 2 16-bit PCMCIA slots on the back. One can be used with a PCMCIA flash card reader for capturing hours of footage while the other actually contains the PCMCIA wireless modem. This allows the default GPRS modem to be easily upgraded to an EDGE or even 3G modem later on.

Making it even more useful as a standalone unit though is the camera’s low power consumption which allows it to be powered and recharged with solar panels instead of needing an AC power source. Unfortunately I have no idea what the availability or pricing for the EVO570 is but you can safely assume it doesn’t come cheap.
