This is a lovely, compact, and smart looking security camera. It’s a good blend of neutral colours, and won’t look out of place in most households.

Setting up the camera is pretty easy. Once you’ve downloaded the app to your smartphone or web apps through your internet browser, then you’re pretty much ready to go. The features that I found really handy were the email alerts which were easy to set up. If the camera detected anything, then I got an alert on my phone via email, clicked the app, and then I could check out what the camera was able to see.

Quality of the video and audio is surprisingly good and the wide angle lens is a great feature as it means you won’t have to move the camera too much in order to see what’s going on at your premises. Granted, you can control the camera wirelessly, but the field of view is good enough to not really need this feature. Throw in the night vision then you’ve got the perfect combination of viewing features. Viewing in low light and dark situations is surprisingly good and the quality of the picture is more than viewable.

You have the option to talk through the camera using the built in mic and speaker. This is great for warning anyone who has broken in that you have alerted the authorities, but its handy for listening for intruders. Also, if like myself you have animals that you want to check in on you can give them a call and watch them come running!

This is a good quality camera and comes in at a reasonable price. It looks great, but it has all the functionality that you could possibly need.
