Monitor any location with this versatile GSM security camera

The Activ B2 remote security camera lets you monitor any location – on your mobile phone! The B2 camera uses a standard GSM SIM card which enables it to send colour MMS pictures and SMS messages to any MMS supported mobile phone with a colour display or to an e-mail address. In addition, the B2 unit also incorporates an infra-red motion detector that will immediately send details of any movement in the surveillance area.

Ideal for home and buisness..

How does the Activ B2 GSM Camera work?

The Activ B2 GSM Camera operates by sending and receiving SMS’s and MMS pictures. Consequently each B2 camera unit is supplied complete with an active MTN SIM card which facilitates full functionality of the GSM Camera. This SIM card does not require a monthly contract, but you will be billed on a monthly basis for the usage of the SIM card. This amount will obviously vary depending on the amount of SMS’s and MMS’s generated by the unit. You will be billed on a monthly basis and the outstanding amount will be collected via our debit order system.  Alternatively, you can supply and install your own MMS-enabled SIM card.
