Another Chinese company to enter the Indian market is EZVIZ with its new security cameras and devices. We played around with their flagship EZVIZ C6N smart security camera for homes over the last few weeks. This is the EZVIZ C6N smart security camera review you must go through if you are in the market to buy a PTZ camera for your home or office.
Out of the box, the EZVIZ C6N smart security camera looks like most others in the market including the one you get from Xiaomi. The contents of the chest include the security camera, a charger, a rather large USB cable to power the device (which is a very good thing) and a roof mounting bracket. The bracket is a good addition to the box, in our opinion, as it will keep the camera out of reach of perpetrators.
Setting up the EZVIZ C6N smart security camera is not hard at all. Just download the EZVIZ app from the Android or iOS store and scan the QR code with it that is placed on the Quick Start Guide. You would require to create a user ID in the app to use all the functionalities of the device. Once done, you are ready to record or see in real-time what the camera sees. Remember you must connect the CCTV camera to the same WiFi the app is on for the first time.
A microSD card of up to 256GB can also be put in the camera, which is nicely hidden beneath the lens. Talking about which, it has a 2MP sensor that can capture video in FHD (1080p). The clarity during the day is very good and at nighttime, it is decent thanks to the infrared light. Objects up to 5-8 meters are very clear during nighttime.

During EZVIZ C6N smart security camera review we tested its PTZ capabilities. Yes, it is a PTZ camera, which means you can remotely pan and tilt it. So, you always get a better view. The app does a good job, and you can record a moment through it as well on the cloud (optional). Features like motion detection and two-way talk are also there. This means you can interact with someone in front of the camera from anywhere around the world using the app. It makes up for a good baby monitoring camera as well.
The EZVIZ C6N smart security camera is available at Rs 2,299 on Amazon. This is a very good price for a CCTV camera that has Full HD recording with PAN and Tilt features. If you run a kitchen/small business, want to monitor your children or dog in the house while you are away, it makes perfect sense to pick this device up.

Completely annoying and useless NEW software. It was good for a year. Now I have lost connection to my own cameras because of the confusing terms and exceedingly poor design of the new software.
Get another brand with battery so you do not have to find a wall plug. Also, the detection sensitivity is only about 50%, missing many of the important images.
I love this camera for its clarity and quality. It’s a great product that you can use to keep an eye on your house at all times, especially if you have kids or pets who need constant supervision. You can view the live feed of what is happening in front of your home anytime from anywhere using your smartphone or tablet computer with a browser app installed. The built-in night vision makes it possible to see everything clearly even at night without the aid of any external light source.
