I received an EZVIZ camera in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
As a parent of a very active 22 month old little boy, I feel as if I need to have eyes everywhere because a safe place like the Living room can become unsafe in a split second and it is really important to be able to see what your little guy is up to at any given moment.
My place has a pretty open space layout, so my kitchen and living room are together and I can usually see the little rascal when I am working in the kitchen, but there are a few blind spots that would necessitate for me to actually go into the living room to see what he is doing.
I knew very quickly I needed a solution and quick and while looking for baby camera’s I came across a company that was new to me : EZVIZ.
EZVIZ is the consumer and residential-focused subsidiary of Hikvision, the world’s largest manufacturer of video surveillance solutions.
EZVIZ utilizes Hikvision’s knowledge and field experience to deliver commercial-quality video products to consumers and the smart-home market providing you with solutions for families and individuals.
Among the home focused products, you will find a selection of baby cameras including the Mini 360 Plus.
Small and packed with great features
The Mini 360 Plus is a compact unit with full room coverage at an affordable price that is very user friendly.
The first step to get your camera set up, is to download the EZVIZ free app on your smart phone, tablet or web browser. The app is available for both iPhone and IOS .
Once the app is installed on your device, just follow the prompts: plug in the camera and connect to your WiFi network which can be done via Ethernet cable or Bluetooth.
The app will prompt you to scan the EQ Code on your unit or enter the serial number to add your camera…This camera is really very easy to set up and you do not need to be tech savvy to install or use it.
Once the camera is installed, you can access it through the app to view your camera from any room or anywhere, the camera has a great viewing angle, but if needed, you can pan and tilt…As a matter of fact the camera responds to the different commands really quickly which is always a plus.
I have tried many different cameras, but none has had the image quality, ease of use and functionalities of the EZVIZ mini.
Great image quality
The image quality is superb and to my surprise that has not changed at night time, as a matter of fact, this little camera has the best night time vision I have been able to find so far! You have two video quality options:
Standard and Hi- Def and honestly, I was already blown away with the standard resolution!
The EZVIZ Mini has many great features and among my favorites: The two way talk, but most of all the big seller for me is the motion tracking mode that will automatically follow any movement when enabled! I can’t tell you just how wonderful I think this feature is. When my little man is walking around the living room, it follows him – allowing me to just glance at the video to make sure he’s not getting into trouble.
Other functions include: a sleep on mode and privacy mask that can be activated by tapping that option. Multiple camera system set up is also available. You can add and view up to 4 cameras for a complete camera network; you can view all 4 cameras in a split window and blow up any particular camera by tapping the screen on your device.
Take snapshots and videos, you can sign up to store all of your videos and images including recaps.
Tiny but mighty the EZVIZ Mini has anything a parent needs in a baby cam for peace of mind. The Mini 360 Plus has an inexpensive retail price of $79.99 which is an amazing price for a product of this quality and functionality!
