Uniden has released the 2nd generation of its wire-free home security range with a cloud based, rechargeable, solar powered, full HD 1080P, home security camera called the Guardian App Cam Solo+.
The weatherproof* App Cam Solo+ is the second generation of the popular App Cam Solo wire-free camera, and includes improved functionality, such as Thermo Sense Technology, rechargeable batteries and an optional solar power connection for an uninterrupted power supply.
With a new contemporary design, the App Cam Solo+ can be placed anywhere inside and outside of the home to keep watch at any angle.
Thermo Sense Technology is a smart heat sensor that detects motion from heat sources, such as people, to avoid common false alarm triggers like curtains or branches moving with the breeze. It provides users with more reliable motion detection notifications when using the free-to-download Uniden app.
A completely wire-free solution, the App Cam Solo+ includes a rechargeable battery with long lasting power and can be charged either directly via a power outlet or with the optional Uniden Solar Panel accessory. The battery can be easily disconnected from the camera with its Quick Swap design, without removing the whole unit from its location, providing a quick and hassle-free recharging solution.
The optional Uniden Solar Panel can be used alongside the camera and effortlessly positioned for optimal sunlight exposure. The solar panel will recharge the App Cam Solo+, while providing non-stop power during daylight hours, allowing footage to be recorded and viewed without the risk of draining the battery.
Footage is able to be recorded and viewed in Full HD 1080p and accessed from anywhere in the world via the dedicated Uniden app. Footage can be stored directly to SD card or the Uniden Cloud ensuring important moments are captured and available for replay when required.
Users have the ability to two-way talk in real time through the built-in microphone and speaker for easy communication with visitors including couriers, while also acting as a deterrent to unwanted guests. A siren can also be activated remotely to alert intruders that someone may be on the premises.
A range of Uniden accessories are available for the App Cam Solo+, including an App Cam Solo+ strap to assist with mounting the camera without drilling a hole and providing an optimal position. A black silicon sleeve fits neatly over the camera to blend into surrounding areas, while reducing any glare from the sun.
The App Cam Solo+ also includes popular Uniden features to help protect the home such as 130-degree wide angle viewing, night vision up to 10 metres and up to 180 days standby time.
The Uniden App Cam Solo+ is suitable for all sized properties and allows users to connect as many cameras as required to one device. The App Cam Solo+ is available in single, twin, triple and quad packs with cameras able to be integrated into Uniden’s WiFi Guardian range, providing flexibility for changes in lifestyle.
Solar Panel (SPS-01) shown in photos is not included & sold separately.

Do you have Solar Panel that works with App Cam Solo+?
We have optional Solar Panel (SPS-01) that works with App Cam Solo+.
How long does it take the Solar Panel to charge the battery full?
The solar panel only has 2.5W output power, it takes about 20 hours to fully charged with good sunlight source, so it is recommended to charge the camera with a wall charger first and only use Solar Panel for long term power.
Why is the Solar Panel not charging the camera?
Heavy usage of your camera can drain the camera battery faster than the Solar panel can recharge it, especially with poor sun exposure. If you find that your Solar Panel is not charging the camera, please make sure that the Solar panel is pointed toward the sun and is not obstructed by trees, buildings, or other obstacles. the camera is not in temperatures below freezing and reduce your camera usage for a day or two and note your camera’s battery level.
Can the Solar Panel charge in low temperature?
The camera batteries may indicate low battery level in cold weather because their internal chemical reactions slow significantly at low temperatures.
Because of the kinds of batteries they use, the optimum charging temperature for the battery is between 0°C and 45°C.
