This room allows a user to take a supplied flash drive and insert it into a USB hub to activate the lights and camera, then simply push one button to begin recording after a five second countdown. When your recording is finished, push the button again to stop the recording and pull out the flash drive. The lights will turn off and you will have a .mp4 video file ready for use as needed.
