What Do We like
The motion sensor will detect any kind of activity and will quickly notify you via sending an email. This way even if you were not checking the video feed, you will know that something’s wrong and will be alerted.
Night vision feature
Every CCTV camera should have this feature called “Night vision”. The built-in infrared illumination or IR LED’s range is about 10-15 meters. That means this night vision enabled camera can take crystal clear pictures in absolute darkness up to 50 feet. The sensors that help to capture images or record videos are of advanced quality.

What We Don’t Like
High speed internet
This CCTV camera is made to work with high-speed internet connections. If you do not have any high-speed internet connection this will not work properly. You can use it via a Wifi router or Wifi dongle as well. Make sure to remember that any wifi hotspot from your mobile phone is not going to work, no matter how fast connection you have recharged in your phone. This seems to be a con for the areas where high-speed internet is not available yet or where the network is not stable
This can be considered as the major drawback of this product. This only records high definition video, not the audio with it. They have upgraded the model to a 1080p version but removed the audio recording feature which makes it even. At this price range, video recording with audio would have been perfect.
This is a 2MP CCTV security camera from Sricam which is made for your house and office surveillance purpose with lots of features in it. This records high definition 1080p quality videos and captures amazingly clear pictures. Now it supports every platform you have available, starting from a mobile phone to a computer.
