Review and Buying Guide Oco HD Smart Wi-Fi Video Monitoring Camera

A tiny expensive, and cloud storage charges further. . A minimal overpriced for what it is. The camera is incredibly great, and produces a decent picture. It truly is housed within a plastic body which can both be stood on a area, allowing for the camera to be angled all around, or can be mounted on a wall. The camera is powered by using usb, and arrives with a rather lengthy usb cable which threads through this plastic frame (and which can be a very little fiddly to get in spot). I was a minor upset as i imagined when it claimed ‘no batteries required’ that the camera may be rechargeable, but it does needed a frequent link. I suppose a single could power it off a rechargeable usb battery, but as equipped it demands to be regularly connected to a plug socket. The application is straightforward to install – i acquired mine from the android engage in retail outlet – and as soon as loaded you enter your wi-fi community login particulars and the software generates a qr code which you maintain in front of the camera. The camera then scans this and employs it to link to the wireless community – a actually neat trick. The camera then relays photos to your cellular phone, and also sends a notification to your cellphone every time it looks motion or hears a noise.

It labored very perfectly the initially 24hours but the video grew to become extremely slow thereafter.

Appeared like an suitable prospect to see if somebody could come back. Even though no 1 has arrive again (luckily) we now have the facility to monitor the yard.

This is a effectively designed, robust and chunky minor camera that offers a incredibly good quality photograph, even with evening vision. The set up is really quick and straightforward to do and the application attributes and notifications to my apple iphone and ipad are great as effectively.

Extremely great high-quality, ongoing payments for entire functionality. . Established up took much less than five minutes and could not have been more simple. In point, all you genuinely have to have to know is to down load the app and then allow it tutorial you in completing the set up.

Oco HD Smart Wi-Fi Video Monitoring Camera – CO-14EU : I think i’ve probably arrived at this product in the opposite way to everybody else. I started using the ivideon software with my old ip camera (a zmodo), along with a local pc it’s a great piece of kit with as much historical recording as you have disk space – best of all, for usage with up to 2 cameras is free. However the fact i had to have my pc running constantly (costing around £4 a month) – i wanted the functionally of the ivideon app without the need to have my pc running. Enter the oco hd smart wi-fi camera. It’s a smart unit and seems to be well made. The flat usb cable that it comes with is handy and keep mess to a minimum. I use this as a baby monitor however, i rely more on the notifications for sound and motion where as my wife prefers to have the stream running constantly – it works well for both of these scenarios. There are 2 downsides that have disappointed me so far. – the auto night vision mode doesn’t work very well or at all.

    Bought this camera to keep watch over my disabled wife when i’m not in the room. Or i’m in the pub 😉 however she didn’t enjoy the experience of being watched over all the time so i’ve redeployed it outside (under a porch out of the weather) this will probably invalidate it’s guarantee though. I’ts now watching over our path and garden. The ribbon cable that came with mine is great for threading through the side of a door or dg window, so no need for drilling holes in walls.

    The oco is far superior to the plastic-y foscam aesthetically. After ordering the underwhelming foscam c2 (which was subsequently returned due to a problem with the firmware/software interface) i ordered the oco co-14eu as an alternative choice to the nest cam (which i felt was too expensive). The oco is far superior to the plastic-y foscam aesthetically, but it also functions much more robustly. Settings, live streams and stored ‘events’ are easily accessed via the ios app. Turning on/off the camera or notifications remotely is intuitive and a joy compared to the glitchy foscam equivalent. Equally, despite the oco being lower quality on paper than the c2 (720p vs 1080p) the difference is not perceivable and in reality the smoothness of the oco footage (no motion blur) seems a huge improvement after experiencing that of the foscam. The only slight issue with the camera (as others have mentioned) is that it seems to go into night vision too readily. However, the quality of night vision is such that i do not feel that the omission of a sensitivity setting warrants the removal of a whole star rating.

        This has been a great item to review. It does exactly what we wanted it to do. We have a yard that we thought someone was coming through the gate into as it seemed our garage door had been tampered with; then we were offered this camera to review. Seemed like an ideal opportunity to see if someone might come back. Whilst no one has come back (thankfully) we now have the facility to monitor the yard. Every time there’s movement in front of the camera my husband receives a still image on his phone so even if it is me going to the rubbish bin, the cats walking in front of the camera etc he gets a still image.

    Webcam / video cam tech has been around for a while now so the ability to stream live media from practically anywhere is nothing new. D-link have been doing it for a while too so how does oco fit in?first impression are of a tidy if plastic little camera and stand that can also be wall mounted. With motion sensor and cloud storage you can never miss the errant house invader or pet watch wherever you are via the straightforward app. How many casual users looking for some piece of mind will invest in a cloud subscription is a question but it what it is if you need that level of monitoring and playback. The big bonus is how easy it is to set up; plug in and load and you’re away. Having had previous experience of a d-link that refused to recognise over wifi or cabled for set up is at least a frustration removed here. Pictures are clear and reliable with a relatively wide angle view. Does need power via usb however. Question over value at the current price pushing £100.

    Good quality but extra costs may be required. . This is a well made, robust and chunky little camera that gives a very good quality picture, even with night vision. The set up is very easy and straightforward to do and the app features and notifications to my iphone and ipad are good as well. The quality of the live feed is excellent but you have to pay a subscription if you want to record anything. I didn’t go for this option but was still impressed by the camera.

      A little pricey, and cloud storage costs extra. . A little overpriced for what it is. The camera is very nice, and produces a decent picture. It’s housed within a plastic frame which can either be stood on a surface, allowing the camera to be angled around, or can be mounted on a wall. The camera is powered via usb, and comes with a fairly long usb cable which threads through this plastic frame (and which can be a little fiddly to get in place). I was a little disappointed as i thought when it said “no batteries required” that the camera might be rechargeable, but it does required a constant connection. I suppose one could power it off a rechargeable usb battery, but as supplied it needs to be constantly connected to a plug socket. The software is easy to install – i got mine from the android play store – and once loaded you enter your wireless network login details and the software generates a qr code which you hold in front of the camera. The camera then scans this and uses it to connect to the wireless network – a really neat trick. The camera then relays pictures to your phone, and also sends a notification to your phone every time it seems movement or hears a noise.

    Very good quality, ongoing payments for full functionality. . Set up took less than five minutes and couldn’t have been simpler. In fact, all you really need to know is to download the app and then let it guide you in completing the set up. Once the camera was set up i was very impressed with the functionality. As long as you have a decent internet connection at either end, it’s possible to monitor what’s going on where you placed the camera, from pretty much anywhere. You can’t record from the camera however and if you want to save footage you will need to take out a cloud subscription; the price is pretty reasonable for a security system at £3. You can set the option to receive notifications if the camera detects sound or movement, which is more useful than just a camera even if you don’t have a cloud subscription you can view still images taken during these events; so it still has some security uses without one. Image and sound quality is good, even has an automatic infra-red night mode and is miles above standard security camera quality. If you so wish, it is also possible to transmit 15 seconds of audio to the camera, though it’s not possible to hold a fluid two-way conversation.

    Easy setup and good quality picture, but budget for a cloud storage plan. . So far, i’m quite impressed with the build and quality of this camera. Setting up is very easy, install the app then create an account and a wizard walks you through adding the camera. The live feed is available on internet explorer as well as iphones and ipads (all i have tested it on. As nothing is stored locally, you have to budget for a cloud storage plan to make this useful for anything other than live feed, and that will cost about 40 euros per year. I have deducted a star for that as it is quite expensive.
