Designed to prevent vandalism, the FlashCam-530 camera system is battery operated and mounts to buildings, poles and trees. It operates in total darkness with a range of 100 feet. Triggered by motion, the system flashes a bright light, takes a series of 35mm photographs, and plays a 15-second voice message to run off the intruder.
