What Do We like
The night vision mode of this camera is one of the attractive features. This device switches itself automatically to night vision mode. This comes with 11 infrared LED lights built-in the camera that helps the lens to capture crystal clear images and videos even in darker areas. This can capture an image from a distance of up to 20 meters or 60 feet.
This device comes with a 1 Megapixel high performing CMOS sensor. The 3.6mm lens of this camera enables us to capture from a wide-angle view. This also has the ability to equip a 2.8mm lens or a 6mm lens.
This IP66 weatherproof camera at this price range is amazing. It is water and dust resistant. It makes sure that even in stormy rainy season or in winter, it will keep doing its job with full efficiency. This is a good choice for the outdoor surveillance purposes of your home/office. This all-weather security camera won’t let the water or dust damage any internal hardware.
The normal angle of view of this security camera is 70.9 degrees for the 3.6mm lens that comes with it. For the 2.8mm lens, the angle of view is 92 degrees, and for the 6mm lens, it is 56.7 degrees. Also, the face of this camera can be rotated to get proper coverage of your whole house as well.
True day and night
This true day night feature in a low priced security camera is pretty good. What it does is the IR cut filters that come with the camera are very sensitive to any light. So this feature allows the camera to capture crystal clear image and video both in light and dark situations.
What We Don’t Like
Monochrome video only
This low budget security camera captures only two colored videos, i.e. black and white. It is capable of capturing only monochrome videos.
This is a very low budget security camera but almost every other brand is providing the remote access feature on their products. This camera does not need any internet connectivity because this will not allow you to monitor the live feed to watch on your smartphone being anywhere in the world. Also, you cannot access the footage or images that are stored in the sd card or hard drive directly from your phone. This is a major con for the device.
This is one of the low-budget products manufactured by Hikvksion that comes with this many features. The build quality is pretty decent, and all the necessary features one may need comes pre-installed. There are a few cons, but looking at the price of this product, you have to put them aside. The search for your cheapest product with lots of features ends here. This product is good value for money and worth buying.
