Installing the Ezviz C6CN Internet PT Camera

To test the Ezviz C6CN I had it initially on the window sill in our dining room but then, once it dawned on me that not much activity happens in here, I moved it to the window sill in our front room. The camera can either be installed like this –  on the window sill –  , or mounted upside down on the ceiling.

Both these designated rooms have good Wi-Fi so it was nice and easy to get them added onto the Ezviz app, which I had already installed on my iPhone since reviewing the other cameras in the range. If, however, you are starting from scratch, all you need to do is connect the camera to your Wi-Fi by turning it on and then following the prompts. During the registration process you can opt to have notifications sent to you as an alert and subscribe to CloudPlay storage (free for the first 23-day days, then a fee from £2.99 will be incurred depending on your choice of plan).

How easy is the Ezviz C6CN Internet PT Camera to use

During testing it soon became clear that the Ezviz C6CN is really very similar to the Ezviz C6N which I reviewed earlier on in the year.

The only difference I could find is that the Ezviz C6CN has a privacy shut off rather than Sleep Mode which is a feature on the comparable Ezviz C6N. By selecting Privacy Mode on the app, the camera will rotate its lens so it is no longer streaming or recording. In fact, the only means of any form of surveillance with this mode enabled is to speak.

This could be a good option if you have the camera in the room where you're sat and you don't want to be recorded, or you want to give some one else in the room some privacy (or a scare!).

How does the Ezviz C6CN Internet PT Camera rate online?

Over on AO, the Ezviz C6CN has scored high with 4.8 out of 5 stars awarded. Reviewers LOVE how easy it is to set up and use with the app, and how clear the picture quality is. One reviewer, who is closer to the age of seventy, was so impressed she ordered two more!

This follows suit with a customer who left a five star review at Robert Dyas who said that they have been so impressed they've just purchased the Ezviz Outdoor Floodlight Camera, and have high hopes for it.

Is the Ezviz C6CN Internet PT Camera worth buying?

Yep! Absolutely. The set-up is easy. And usability is easy. The only reason why we didn't give it five stars is because of the connectivity (Wi-Fi and mains). But, all-in-all, it's a great little indoor camera which will work well with up to three other Ezviz security cameras in the range for total piece of mind.
