FalconWatch Pro Security Camera - Our Review
The FalconWatch Pro security camera has no monthly fee, plus it is jam packed with extras that other security cameras lack. Let’s take a closer look.
Quick and easy setup — A YouTube video shows you how to set everything up once you are ready to power the device on and start recording.
Built-in large capacity storage slot — The on-board SD card holds 32 GB of video footage
Motion detection — The motion detection setting allows you to set up your camera so that it will send you a snapshot photo and an email alert if any unexpected movements are detected.
Night vision — This camera can record intrusions during the day or during the night because it can see in the dark.
Watch from your smartphone — If you need to check up on a loved one, just open up the app on your iPhone or Android device to access the live stream.
Built in loudspeaker and microphone — If your elderly loved one or nanny needs help during an emergency, they can communicate with you directly via the loudspeaker/microphone interface.
Our Rating: 4.5/5
The 1.3 megapixel HD lens is the best thing about this camera. It records extremely high quality video, allowing you to get detailed information about what is happening.
Even with the YouTube installation walk-through, setup can be a bit confusing. Also, some people who bought this camera didn’t like its blue status indicator light. The indicator light draws attention to the camera, letting potential intruders know that the are being monitored. However, there is no way to turn off the indicator light if you want to record discreetly.
Best Suited For
The FalconWatch HD makes a great security camera. The HD lense allows you to get a good look at any intruder who enters your house, and the blue status light discourages them from breaking in in the first place. Also, the built-in mic and loudspeaker allow for easy communication between you and your nanny.
Not So Good For
People looking for a discreet security camera device.
This is a good all-around security camera that would also make a great nanny cam. However, if you want something more discreet you may want to go with a different product.
