Sricam SP009 review
We already talked about a security cam, the Xiaomi Yi Night Vision. Today we’ll analyze the Sricam SP009, another nice Wifi CCTV Security Cam with motion detection, that is even cheaper, you can buy it for just 23$ from Gearbest.com.
This camera can be used as a security cam or as a baby monitor, or to control anything you like wherever you position it. It has wifi, and can connect to your Wifi lan, so after an easy setup you can connect to the cam using the dedicated APcam app on a cell phone or a tablet, or even a computer, and you can see live what’s happening in front of the camera via wifi.
If you have more than one Sricam in your home, using the app you can connect simultaneously to all of them, so you can put one in the living room, one in the kitchen, one in the bedroom and control all just with one app in the same time.
As I mentioned before, it has a Motion Detection function, so when you activate it, if something or someone moves in front of the camera, it starts recording and sends an email to a preset address. You can hide your camera and go out safely, because if someone enters in your home you’ll get an alert, then you can connect to your camera, observe the situation and in case call the police.
Even when you’re outside, you can see what’s happening inside your home connecting to the Sricam Camera with just a phone or a tablet, and the APcam App. Put the camera into your children’s bedroom and control them playing or sleeping, put it into the living room to control if your grandma is ok, or to see if someone enters into your home when you are out.
