Hello,

Fun getting back into hobby, and trying to re-learn what
I (possibly) knew years ago.
Have a HomePatrol-1

Regarding the batteries:

If always plugged into AC, what are the batteries used for ?

e.g., what happens if the batteries are depleted or removed, but the unit is still plugged into AC ?
Still functional ? Fully ?

Isn't the memory they use of a non-volatile type ?

Would just like to understand.

Thanks,
Bob

When running on AC power, batteries are employed to prevent the interuption of data being written to the SD card in the event of a power failure. If the scanner is running on AC power and batteries are depleted or not installed, functions that write to the card (such as record or replay) will be disabled to avoid the possibility of SD card corruption should AC power fail.
