Product User Manual


The E-BBOX-01 is a compact 'black-box' recorder with integrated 1080P HD covert pinhole camera and microSD card storage. It runs off 4 x AAA batteries or 5VDC external power and has a hi-sensitive audio microphone. Users can play recorded AVI files via the USB connection or can connect the unit directly to an HDMI or video monitor for playback.

It is the ideal product for quick covert deployment at home, in the corporate office environment or in industrial & mining settings. 


  • 1080P HD Pinhole Camera
  • Hi-Sensitive Audio Microphone
  • External PIR Sensor or Internal Motion Recording
  • Optional External Analog Camera Connection
  • Time/Date Overlay
  • MicroSD Card Storage
  • AAA Battery Operation or External 5VDC Operation


The unit operates stand-alone and recording is activated either by an external PIR sensor or via internal software video motion detection. When the external PIR sensor is used, the unit is placed in a 'sleep-mode' until movement is detected by the PIR sensor. The unit then awakes and starts recording. If recording is not detected for 5 seconds, then it returns to a sleep mode. This method helps to conserve battery power. For applications where battery operation is not as important, the unit can be configured to record on software motion activation. 


With the PIR sensor activation and limited movement, the E-BBOX-01 can operate for 2~3 days or if used in an area with continous motion it will last for upto 4 hours. Power is provided by 4 x removable AAA batteries or 5VDC external power.


For customers requiring a recorder with external camera, the E-BBOX-01 can accomodate an external analog video camera. It is fully compatible with our E-HEAD-CAM2 which is a covert camera with interchangable heads and a seperate audio microphone.
