EyeClub WiFi Smoke Alarm Hidden Camera - Our Review
This hidden camera from Eyeclub is about as difficult to detect as any hidden camera we’ve seen so far. It looks exactly like a normal smoke detector, but in reality it’s actually a HD surveillance device capable of recording high quality audio and video. Let’s take a look at some of the main features.
Adjustable resolution — If your WiFi network isn’t very fast, you can turn the resolution down to avoid lags and gaps in the recording. The maximum resolution (1080p) looks great.
Remote control — You can use your mobile phone to control the camera and mic.
Battery capability — This device is designed to be used while plugged in. But if you unplug it, you can get 2 hours of continuous footage before the batteries run out.
100 minutes of battery life — Most cameras like this can record about an hour of footage before the batteries die. With the Toughsty, you get an extra 40 minutes of footage
WiFi support — The camera connects to your WiFi network, allowing you to backup video files and control it from your mobile phone.
Easy to mount — You can either use a double-sided adhesive or screws to mount this camera to your ceiling.
Our Rating: 4.5/5
This wall-mounted spy camera really looks like an ordinary smoke alarm. The high-resolution camera on this device is impressive and the pictures and movies it records look amazing.
The short battery life is this camera’s main weakness. For best results, you should use the included A/C adapter cord.
Best Suited For
Parents who want to find out what their kids are up to when they are not around. This device could also be used as a nanny cam or for security purposes.
Not So Good For
Nighttime surveillance. The lack of night vision capability means that you have to use this camera in a well-lit area for it to be effective.
The previous version of this product had many flaws, but most of the issues seem to have been resolved. This new and improved hidden camera disguised as a smoke detector has a great camera, blends in well and comes with a useful app that will let you control it from your phone. The battery is not so long lasting, though, so for best results you should find a way to hook it up to the included A/C adapter.
