Do I need Internet access to use the Camit 1 + GSM?
No. Camit 1 + GSM uses a standard telephone line. As it has also been designed to be GSM compatible, this Camit can even go "wireless" by using an optional external GSM modem and transmitting pictures across the GSM network.

How do you see the image if it’s not sent across the Internet?
Camit 1 + GSM transmits data from its built-in modem to the modem of the receiving PC. You dial into it as you would to a regular telephone. It answers the call in a way similar to how a fax machine does. Once connected, you will see live, high quality images taken directly through the "eyes" of the Camit 1 + GSM.

eye_bullet_big.gif (914 bytes) Are the Camit 1 + GSM images in black & white or colour?
The images are transmitted in color. Camit 1 + GSM has a built in color camera.

Not only can you choose the number of pictures to be transmitted, but you can also choose the size of pictures: 640 x 480, 320 x 240 or 160 x 120.

Yes. Camit 1 + GSM has unlimited uses and can be used discreetly to watch your home, business, stock, employees, kids, pets, livestock,...etc.
eye_bullet_big.gif (914 bytes) Do I need a separate phone line for the Camit 1 + GSM or can I use the main phone line?
Good News! You can use the main phone line or you can use a separate/dedicated phone line. You can set the number of rings at which Camit 1 + GSM will answer so as to avoid conflicts with answer phones and fax machines. Depending on how "busy" your main phone line is, or how important the surveillance task is, it may be sensible to use Camit 1 + GSM on a dedicated line.

Another option would be to go with an external GSM modem and let the camera use the GSM network for wireless telephone transmission to your receiving PC.
