To choose a smart security camera, you need to evaluate from the following aspects:
1. Resolution: There are currently three resolutions of 480P, 720P, and 1080P. It is recommended to use a camera above 720P. The 720P resolution is more common in smart cameras on the market, and the picture quality can reach the quasi-HD level, which is actually enough for home users.
In order to make the video look clearer, it is also possible to choose the 1080P version of the smart camera. Generally, smart cameras have three modes when adjusting the image quality, generally smooth, high-definition, and ultra-clear. In fact, these three modes do not directly represent the image quality of the camera but are a rather vague term. For Xiaobai users, don’t be fooled by the so-called ultra-clear, it does not mean that the picture quality of this camera has reached 1080P.
2. Security: There are too many cases in which camera privacy is stolen. Choose a camera with a brand and a high level of security. Before the news exposed many unqualified cameras, the video content was stolen by criminals, and then the images were resold. You are using the camera to watch your house, and others are watching you through the camera. This is terrible. Be sure to buy branded products, don’t try to be cheap, buy the kind of unbranded, low-cost, and explosive models, privacy and security are the most important.
3. Video storage method: The general storage method is divided into SD card storage and cloud storage. SD storage space is limited, and the price of an SD card is not cheap. To buy a smart camera that can be stored in the cloud, the recorded video is stored directly in the cloud, so that you can review the video content at any time through the mobile app, which is convenient and quick.
4. Other functions: In addition to the three key points above, don’t forget to check the functions of night vision, security, and a video review. Night vision should also be clear enough, and whether the security alarm is sensitive enough, how long can you review it? Pay attention to the video content of the time.
