Choosing a home security camera is a bit like going to one of those restaurants where there are far too many things on the menu. It makes it very difficult to pick something, and even when you do, you’re not sure if you went for the right option.
With security cameras, not only are there so many brands and models to choose between, there’s also a vast array of features to decipher.
The EZVIZ C6 makes your choice easy. It’s an indoor camera that’s designed for parents and pet owners to keep an eye on what matters most to them. It’s affordable to buy and unlike many rivals, you don’t have to pay a subscription to use some of the features that attracted you in the first place.
More than simply a security camera, the C6 allows you to comfort your pet and protect your child wherever you are: in another room or even the other side of the world. It’s protection made simple.
Here are five reasons that make it the ultimate indoor camera
1 – It can detect pets and crying babies
As well as being able to alert you when a person is detected – a core feature for any security camera – the C6 can also identify pets, record their movements and send an alert to your phone… if you want one.
In the same way, it listens out and notifies you if it hears a baby crying, or the sound of a smoke alarm. You’ll know instantly that you’re needed.
You can choose precisely what you want to be notified about, and when, so you’re never disturbed when you don’t want to be.
2 – It can track pets (and people) around an entire room
Many security cameras rely on a wide-angle lens to provide the broadest coverage of your room. The C6 is cleverer. Its body can rotate 360°, and the lens can move up and down, allowing you to see the whole room from a more natural viewpoint.
You can remotely control where the camera points, but when you’re not watching, it can intelligently pan and zoom in on a person or pet as it moves around the room. Where some security cameras record at a low frame rate, the C6’s video is smooth.
3 – It offers safe local storage with subscription-free smart notifications
The EZVIZ C6 can record video to a microSD card which slots into the rear of the camera. This means you don’t have to pay for cloud storage. And, unlike other home security cameras, you can use all of the C6’s features without paying a subscription: nothing is locked behind a paywall.
And besides the features already mentioned, there’s two-way calling, so you can your speak to your pet or child. Plus, if someone waves at the camera, it can start a video call with your phone.
It also supports dual-band Wi-Fi 5 for a fast, reliable connection. Or you can connect the camera to your home router using an Ethernet cable.
4 – It gives you privacy when you want it
Putting a camera in your home can be a slightly uncomfortable thought for some people. The compact, friendly design means you can place it unobtrusively on a shelf or table, but what really helps is that the C6 has a built-in privacy mode where the lens rotates out of sight, so it can’t see or record anything.
If you choose to record video to a microSD card, it won’t be uploaded to the cloud. But to add extra security, that video is encrypted with a password you choose, meaning the only person who can view the video is you.
On top of that, there’s multi-step authentication which prevents unauthorised access to the app.
5 – It has great video quality
Despite the affordable price, the EZVIZ C6 records video in 2K+, and can zoom in up to 8x as it automatically tracks a subject around the room.
The detailed, colourful footage allows you to see exactly what’s going on.
Night vision, which allows the camera to see up to 10m, ensures things that happen after dark are captured as well.
