Hey y’all, it’s Rose and today we’re going to take a quick look at the Alarm.com Indoor Wireless Fixed IP Camera. Installation is fairly easy but does require an ethernet connection. You just plug the included Ethernet adapter into the back, plug the camera into a power source, and wait for it to turn on.
Once it does, visit alarm.com/addcamera to connect it to your home security system. The camera records in 720p HD. However, you can also set it to automatically adjust to a lower resolution if needed to improve performance.
The camera has a 110-degree viewing angle and can automatically swap to night vision when needed Alright super sleuths, do you notice something funny about this video? I’ll clue you in; the camera lacks audio.
While you can view recorded video and live stream, IF you pay for an Alarm.com compatible security plan, you won’t ever be able to listen in. So what else is missing? Obviously audio, which means it also lacks two-way audio.
It lacks the ability to zoom digitally, it can’t pan or tilt, and it has no battery. What it lacks in hardware, it makes up for in software accessed through an app or web portal. You can request a recording at any time on-demand.
You can view multiple video streams at once. You have access to recorded clips and can save up to 1,000 clips every month. You can even download clips locally. You can rename the clips and sort them to make it easier to find what you’re looking for.
You can also create recording schedules. You can record when there is an alarm event, when motion is detected, when there is an entry delay, when a sensor is triggered, or when the system is armed or disarmed.
The level of customization allowed is more than a normal security camera. Including control over motion settings like sensitivity and target size. You can also create multiple detection zones. In short, I think the hardware is unimpressive, but the software is effective.
For Alarm.com, I still suggest the compatible Skybell Video Doorbell or even a third-party camera over this one. With a third-party camera, it will be separate from your security system, even using a separate app.
However, you will have access to features like audio and Full HD recording plus other benefits. If y’all have any questions about the Alarm.com camera, feel free to comment below. If this videos been helpful at all, I would be thankful for a thumbs up.
Otherwise, I appreciate y’all spending time with me today. Next time we are going to be taking a look at the SimpliSafe’s Indoor Camera, and I’m really excited about this. And I think every SimpliSafe owner in the country probably is as well; it’s been long anticipated.
So, if y’all are interested in checking that out, stay tuned.
