Security Mini IP Camera by UOKOO - Our Review
This indoor security camera from UOKOO recently made it to the number one spot on Amazon’s bestsellers list for Surveillance Camera Lenses. Why is it so popular? One big reason could be how easy it is to use and install. A one minute YouTube video tells you everything you need to know to setup and use this surveillance camera. The feature list is impressive as well. Let’s take a look.
Easy installation — The “one click” installation steps are clear and intuitive. You don’t need to be a security expert to figure out how to use this device.
Remote control capability — You can control this device from anywhere using a free app called iSmartViewPro.
High definition video and audio — The high def camera can record video and take photographs in 720p.
Email alerts — If you turn motion sensing on, the camera will send you an email every time it senses something happening in your house.
Night vision mode — Just click the bulb icon on the smartphone app to turn nighttime mode on.
Motion activated — You can optionally set the camera to recording after it senses motion.
Our Rating: 3.5/5
Ease of use is definitely the standout feature. Even people who aren’t good with computers can set this camera up and figure it out in a matter of minutes.
The biggest disadvantage this camera has is the fact that it doesn’t save video automatically. The only way to save footage is to press the record button via the iSmartViewPro app.
Best Suited For
If ease of use is your priority, this is the camera for you. It’s not jam packed with extra features, but it does let you see what’s going on in your house when you log in via the app.
Not So Good For
If you are looking for a comprehensive home surveillance solution, you’d be much better off with a more professional home security camera.
The Security Mini IP Camera by UOKOO is quite basic and lacks many of the features found on other home security cameras. On the other hand, it’s easy to use and it’s quite inexpensive. If you’re looking for a basic surveillance device that will give you the ability to pop in and take a look at what’s going on from time to time via your smartphone, you’ll be very happy with this camera.
