What we liked about the EZVIZ Battery Cam smart security camera

This is a small wireless camera seriously rich in features. The amazing ability to be able to keep a check on your home remotely via your phone perhaps isn’t quite so unusual these days – but the EZVIZ does so much more:

High definition image: You can view the footage in HD 1080p, which means more information and a better experience – ideal, of course, from a security perspective.

Two-way talk: Unlike most security cameras, the EZVIZ allows you to communicate directly with the house via the microphone on your phone. So you’ll always have a presence in the house even when you’re not there – even if it is largely used for telling the dog to get down off the sofa.

Can be used inside and out: While most cameras offer either an interior or exterior option, the weatherproof camera can be used around the home and garden – as long as it’s within Wi-Fi range. This gives a lot of flexibility and will likely save money in the long run.

Battery operated: It runs off a rechargeable lithium battery, so again saves money compared to models running on AA batteries.

Installing the EZVIZ Battery Cam smart security camera

The wireless camera, roughly the size of a coffee mug, takes less than a few minutes to set up and connect. It’s intuitive and the download of the app onto your phone is the most time-consuming element along with connecting it to the home’s Wi-Fi network. A quick and easy registration is all it needs – and you’re away.
