Another security camera to grace the market is the Remocam. It is one of the latest Wi-Fi surveillance cameras which will allow you to keep tabs on your home from practically anywhere with the use of your smartphone. Like many within similar device classes, it is able to provide quality daytime videos. Installation is also a breeze, which gives it some plus points. However, its night vision mode could be better as images come out soft. Furthermore, the unit does not offer email alerts, and it cannot be triggered by other smart home automated products such as door sensors, smart switches, or smart lights.
The Remocam is Your Basic Modern Security Camera
Measuring in at 5.4 x 4.2 x 4.1-inches, the Remocam will not bother your shelf space too much. It can easily be placed on a bookshelf or countertop. There is also an optional bracket that you can purchase should you want the security camera to be mounted on a wall or ceiling.
Within its round, black, matte head contains a 720p camera with 8 infrared LED lights. These lights can take and record up to 30-feet of night vision. There is also an IR transmitter which lets you control set-top boxes, HDTVs, and other compatible entertainment devices with the use of the Remocam app. It should be noted, however, that it does not work with Z-Wave devices such as thermostats or smoke alarms.
This security camera is attached to a short silver arm connected to a mechanical hinge. It can then let the camera tilt to 95-degrees. The arm is then connected to a round base with a mechanical swivel. This can then let the device swivel up to 335-degrees in panning range.
The unit has a 3-times digital zoom and uses a Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n circuitry to let it connect to your home network. It does sport a motion sensor, but lacks humidity and temperature sensors in which other security cameras have already taken the liberty in adding such functionalities into their own schemas.
Daytime video delivers sharp 720p footage with lots of good contrast. Operating the camera is also whisper-quiet, but is quite slow on the uptake. Night vision quality, on the other hand, has a different story to tell as images come out soft.
The Remocam are for home or office people who are in the market for a Wi-Fi enabled surveillance camera that can deliver excellent daytime video. It can store recorded video and still images with the use of an SD card, and it can also store data in the cloud (subscription needed). However, video resolution is limited to 720p, and night vision performance could do better.
