SMONET 8CH 960P Video Security System
Safety should be one of the main concerns when it comes to your home. After all, you can’t call your house a home if you don’t feel safe in it. Luckily, technology these days are so advanced that securing your home is not all that hard. I’m here to introduce to you the SMONET 8CH 960P Video Security System which I have been using for a few weeks now. A very solid Wireless Security Camera System that is easy to use and won’t break your bank this coming holiday.
Wireless Security Camera
The SMONET Camera System is a wireless security camera that transmits video by a 2.4ghz wireless signal. Bear in mind, although the name suggests wireless, the SMONET camera will still need a power supply from an outlet. Other than that, the cameras will communicate with each other and with the NVR (Network Video Recorder) wirelessly. They will build a private subnet between them to transmit data. Hence, they DO NOT need WiFi to communicate with one another inside their system.
Like any other wireless device, the SMONET 8CH 960P Video Security System will have high latency. Distance and walls between the devices will also be a big factor in how high the latency will be. Thus, if you are planning to watch LIVE video feeds, it will have noticeable delays.
I have installed this system on my 200 sq.mtr. 2 story home and I haven’t had any problems with it. I have put one on my front gate, garage, 1st floor, and my baby’s room. It works seamlessly considering I installed them myself. Also, this is an expandable security system. If you need more, the NVR allows you to install up to 8 cameras in your system.
The SMONET 8CH 960P Video Security System sports 1.3 Megapixels Bullet Cameras. They have an image resolution of 1280*960P using a 4mm lens. They make very clear videos in the daytime.
When it comes to night time, all cameras are equipped with Infrared Night Vision. The cameras can capture footage up to 20 meters in Pitch-Black Darkness. It might not be enough to capture clear facial recognition but you will definitely see if someone’s breaking into your home.
Another important feature that these cameras possess is its IP66 rating. The cameras are designed to withstand severe weather conditions from -50 Fahrenheit to 122 Fahrenheit. They are all completely waterproof and dustproof.
Remote Access Feature
One of the best features of this system is its remote access feature. You can access your surveillance camera system and watch anytime anywhere using your phone or a tablet. Simply download the app IP PRO or Eseecloud from Android Google Play or Apple App Store. This is the only time you are going to need an internet connection with the SMONET 8CH 960P Video Security System.
Furthermore, the camera also has motion detection capabilities. If this is engaged, any abrupt movements within the camera’s vision will trigger its alarm. The system will automatically message you via the app for any movements outside or inside your home.
The installation of the SMONET 8CH 960P Video Security System is very easy. First, just pick your desired spots for the camera placements and make sure you can plug them into a power supply. Second, connect the provided mouse into the NVR and also plug it in a power supply.
Lastly, connect your chosen monitor to the NVR with a VGA or HDMI cable. The router LAN port should also be connected to the NVR WAN port with a network cable provided. The video should now be available for viewing on your chosen monitor.
The SMONET 8CH 960P Video Security System is now available on a very good package which will save you money. The package includes an 8 channel capable NVR pre-installed with a 1TB hard drive for saving videos.
Also included in the package, are 4 bullet waterproof cameras, 1 mouse, a screw bag and all the necessary power supply cables for the cameras and NVR.
If you are a power user, I suggest you buy additional hard drive space as 1TB will only be good for a a few months worth of video recordings. It is also imperative that you buy additional storage if you plan on using more than 4 cameras in your system.
SMONET 8CH 960P Video Security System Review
Rating 8.0 out of 10
With a stable power supply for each device, this surveillance system can run for years non-stop. This is a good video security system and is very easy to install. The MONET 8CH 960P Video Security System comes at a very affordable price. Some offer the same kind of protection but double the price.
I would highly recommend that every home have their very own security system. If you are looking for your very first home security system, the SMONET 8CH 960P Video Security System is definitely worth every penny. You can purchase it at Amazon.com.
