Calling all would-be Bonds, Bournes, Saints, Salts and IMF operatives – we’ve just uncovered the smallest Wi-Fi camera in the world!
No bigger than a walnut, the Smart-i Wireless Spy Camera still manages to capture footage at 640 x 480 resolution, and stream it directly to a PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad or Android mobile. Just download the Smart-i app and you’re away. The footage can be saved directly on your device, so there’s no need for chunky SD cards or extra batteries.
Speaking of batteries, the Smart-i Wireless Spy Camera will take footage for up to 2hrs – ideal for any undercover ops, or just having fun. With a range of up to 100m (outdoors) you could even attach it to your bike, pet’s collar or R/C aeroplane. Well... even secret agents are allowed to have fun sometimes!
The accessories pack is the only way you can allow constant power to your Smart-i Wireless Camera. Otherwise without the accessories pack, it will run off a CR2 battery, provided. Battery will last approx two hours

How can I get recordings off my iPhone onto a PC? Dave, Sunderland - 3rd November 2012
Firebox says: Hey Dave, if you connect the phone with itunes it will come up on there in a separate folder, it can then be transferred to PC.
Basically not even a fun toy for playing with around the office. WiFi range is complete pants, as is trying to set it up to run on existing WiFi infrastructure. The on/off/setup switch easily slips into setup by mistake, which is not ideal. You will find you are consuming CR2 lithium battetries like they are going out of fashion and it runs hot. The wireless security is also very inflexible, and trying to get it workinhg with an existing WiFi network where you cannot change encryption type etc. May not get you a working camera. You can't even go hide it somewhere for some candid photo fun as the lens is about 5mm wide and shiny so it can be reasonably easily seen. Better to go spend a bit more money on a proper pinhole hi-res surveliance camera with an external WiFi sender. IT Pro, London - 30th August 2012
Is it possible to get clip attachments so you can wear the camera on your shirt or cap? Do you have any youtube clips showing the camera in action? Finally what quality resolution does it record at (ie 720p etc)? Regards Russell. Russell, Australia - 23rd August 2012
Firebox says: Hey Russell we do sell an accessories pack for this, check out the product page for details!
Can I ask if this camera will show me video through my iPhone without me having any wi-fi in my house? What I mean is, can I simply connect my phone to the camera and be able to view my dog at home whilst I am out at work? Nathan Hughes, Liverpool - 9th July 2012
Firebox says: Hey Nathan. While you can view this anywhere, you will need some form of Wi-Fi to us the camera
Can this device be powered by a USB power pack like the pebble for extended portable usage? Koonwah, Manchester - 5th June 2012
Firebox says: Hey Koonwah, as long as you had the right charging connector then it sure could be powered by a battery pack.
Can you send me the instructions on how I can connect my cam to wi Fi and view from another location? Gary, - 9th May 2012
Firebox says: I think we can, can you email your order details to email@example.com and we will try!
