This year, the home security market pretty much exploded, all thanks to wireless home security cameras. The affordable options we saw this year have made it incredibly easy: for homeowners to: sneak a peek at specific rooms and surrounding property from almost anywhere in the world.
A lot of: wireless home security cameras: look different: and have different: features, but most are listed above the $100 price point, making it difficult for some people to outfit an entire home. However, YI just announced an affordable alternative, known as the YI Home Camera.
This newly launched camera can deliver 720p video with a 111-degree wide-angle lens and a 4x digital zoom. Each of these wireless home security cameras also have infrared LED night vision and motion detection technology, which can be customized for sending out smartphone alerts.
Users can access live and recorded video through the camera’s iOS and Android apps, all without a monthly fee. Just know that the camera doesn’t have any cloud support; everything is stored locally to a microSD card. Other features include pan and zoom, two-way audio, and more.
“As the world’s top-selling home security HD camera, we are happy to expand our offering to the U.S. market,” said Ye Song, co-founder of YI. “The Internet of Things is growing exponentially and the connected home market is exploding, but many home cameras on the market today require an expensive monthly subscription and manufacturers store users’ personal video footage.
