TIERRA VERDE, Fla. - Customers who shop at BJ’s Wholesale Club will now be able to pick up a do-it-yourself home video surveillance system along with their bulk cereal, peanut butter, and other household items.

SeaView Video Technology, based here, has begun to ship its SecureView camera system to BJ’s Warehouse Club, which operates about 150 locations in 16 states.

The SecureView camera is designed to look like a normal light bulb, but instead of providing light, the unit contains a miniature video camera. The camera transmits a secure, real-time signal through a residence’s power lines, and users are able to view the video on a regular television with the use of a provided decoder.

BJ’s, the country’s third-largest warehouse club with over seven million members, will be offering the SecureView as part of their do-it-yourself security offerings.

Michael Ambler, chief executive officer of SeaView, said he feels the new opportunity with BJ’s could be beneficial for both companies.

"We are extremely excited about the sales potential from BJ's Wholesale Club, and the opportunity to expose so many consumers to the advantages of SecureView and power-line technology products," said Ambler.
