Amazon have recently released the Amazon Cloud Cam Security Camera, and we thought we’d take a look at this camera in a little more detail, to see if it is the best security camera to protect your home whilst your away.
Features of the Amazon Cloud Cam Security Camera
- There are motion alerts that form part of the technology. When you are out, you will receive notifications when Cloud Cam detects unusual activities and movement in your home. It is possible to check motion in real time on the Cloud Cam mobile app via your smart phone or online at cloudcam.amazon.com.
- It is connected 24/7. It is possible to watch, download, and share the last 24 hours of the recordings in impressive 1080p Full HD.
- The camera is fitted with night vision technology. This is ideal to help keep your home safe, even during hours of darkness. It is possible to switch/off night vision at anytime using the Cloud Cam App.
- The camera comes with 2-way audio, so you can speak through the camera if required. Great for scaring away people who may be in your property without your permission. It is also great for checking-in with your kids, speaking to your dog, or just saying hello to whoever is there!
- There is a free 30-day trial of Cloud Cam Plans, which allows you to unlock some more advanced features and store up-to 30 days of video clips. With this trial, you can change plans or cancel at anytime.
- The camera as expected works well with Alexa. When you instruct Alexa to show a live feed, it will display it on your Amazon Fire TV, Fire Tablet, Echo Show, or Echo Spot.
- It is great for pulling up any of the latest incidents that the camera detects. As an example, you can say “Alexa, show me the last alert from the front door”, and it will show the incident.
- It also makes use of the latest Amazon Key technology.
So, if you are looking to monitor your home in 1080p Full HD, and catch activity as it happens, then this is a great security camera to buy. With the ability to view live video streams, replay motion alert clips, and know when Cloud Cam detects activity, you will certainly appreciate and enjoy this camera.
