QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk BCM a Question
It says you can record live video in AVI format and store it on your device, is it also possible to stream the live footage from the camera to a device during use to see what the camera sees in real time?
It only streams to your (one) smartphone/iPad, not to another external monitor. However you could mirror the iPad to a second display in one of several ways if you need to. But yes, you watch the footage directly on a an Android/iOS smartphone; that’s what you use to see what’s going on. Then hit the record button on the smartphone app when you see something you want to save.
Do you have recommended disinfection practices for this device? Given that it's waterproof, can it withstand being soaked in disinfectant for a few minutes? Or do you sell protective coverings (e.g., plastic sheeting) to allow for easy disinfection?
This device can be wiped with an appropriate disinfectant wipe like any other survey hardware, as it is non-porus. I would not soak it in chemicals. I think a plastic cover would not only shred during use, the image quality will suffer, and the plastic may produce ultrasound when sticking into a crevice, which will frighten any bats more than usual.
Can you use this device on bluetooth only? I.e. in areas without signal?
The device does not use bluetooth. It generates its own WIFI network which you connect to using a smart device which can be 50' away, maybe more. It does not require internet or cell phone service, it makes it's own little private network just for the camera with a password.
