Smart devices in our lives bring a lot of convenience, such as smart cameras, which are available to us only by using a cell phone to complete remote monitoring watch, bringing us peace of mind experience. Today we will share with you an outdoor smart camera, from the product xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera, this camera in the outdoor monitoring what experience, have a look.
Unboxing video appearance
This xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera packaging is consistent with the product’s packaging style; the front can see the appearance of the camera, and the two antennas indicate that this is a signal distance to receive a more distant camera.
The back of the camera some parameter information, including some of the xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera photography angle and product features, the year a quick understanding of the camera’s function
On the product’s side, it can be seen that this camera supports infrared night vision; in fact, this xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera’s infrared night vision function is more powerful than indoor cameras, as will be demonstrated later by comparison.
All accessories are included, including the camera host power cable, wall expansion nails, instructions, and a quick guide guide card.
Not like indoor cameras, this xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera is mounted on the wall in a unique way, with the product camera head equivalent to a hanging mode, plus the top of the antenna, which looks like it’s wearing a hat, making it a little cute.
The top antenna on this xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera differs from the characteristics of indoor cameras. Because outdoor cameras are typically located far from indoor WiFi, the dual antenna design ensures that even when the WiFi is too far away, the camera can maintain a stable connection.
The waterproof performance of an outdoor camera is also an important indicator; the memory card part also uses a silicone wrapped design, and after inserting the memory card, it can play a waterproof role.
In fact, the waterproof design in this xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera can be clearly seen; the power supply interface part, which is not the same as the indoor camera, also uses a waterproof design, and the interface sealing performance is better.
0 This xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera camera is 2.0 megapixel CMOS image sensor, recording and monitoring screen support 1080P, wide angle range of 150 °, with adjustable angle PTZ, can monitor a wide range, and as an outdoor camera, this xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera is 8 infrared night vision lights, the night visual distance of up to 10-15 meters, and as an outdoor camera, this xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera is 8 infrared night vision lights, only 15 meters away And indoor cameras, like indoor cameras, only have a night visibility distance of 7-10 meters. So, if you require outdoor monitoring, outdoor camera performance will be superior.
1 The installation of the base, which must be fixed to the wall, cannot be used for indoor cameras. After all, the outdoor camera is positioned outdoors, so the use of outdoor scenes will still be adapted to the main camera.
2 The installation method also determines the monitoring angle of this camera; installation against the wall means that this xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera does not need to monitor the wall part, and in order to prevent disassembly, the general will be installed in a high camera, so this camera’s horizontal adjustable distance is 270 degrees, and vertical adjustable angle is 90 degrees. Can cover all areas except the wall; if installed against a corner, it can also cover a distance of 270 degrees. However, I believe that if you support 360 ° panoramic monitoring, it may be preferable.
3 Experience with remote monitoring
4 This xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera, as a smart product with a product line, supports interaction via the Mi Home APP. The first step in using any smart device is to network it and bind it, which is simple to do with the Mi Home APP.
5 After binding the device, go to the device home page and perform the corresponding remote operation; if you’ve used a PTZ camera before, you’ll be more familiar with this operating interface. This xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera has all of the features that a PTZ camera should have, such as real-time monitoring, angle adjustment, voice calls, and other features.
6 PTZ camera settings options are also extensive; you can configure the operation settings, as well as some of the PTZ’s interaction. For example, in the alarm function settings, you can make some custom settings for the alarm frequency, alarm time period, and so on, based on the specific use of the environment, to set the desired function, which is very convenient.
7 Real-time monitoring process, you can choose to actively save screenshots or screen recordings, save records will be stored directly in the phone’s memory, easy to view offline
8 Real-time voice interaction is also supported by this xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera, but the intercom mode is only walkie-talkie mode; it would be preferable if you could add real-time voice calls. You can achieve real-time voice function of the phone and the camera is located in the environment through the remote voice function, which will be very useful in some cases.
9 This camera will be inserted into the TF card, and the monitoring records will be saved on the card. Playback can be controlled via the APP, and the playback mode supports the timeline mode and event set mode. Among them, the intelligent event set mode will automatically record key information based on the camera in the picture of the person or sound movement, allowing you to easily view the history of events.
0 On the monitoring screen, in daytime mode, this xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera and indoor PTZ camera are not much different; in fact, most of the same price camera is 2 million effective pixels, and the difference is not significant in the case of sufficient light effect. The real advantage of outdoor PTZ is the night vision effect; in this case, compare the effect of this xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera and an ordinary camera in the same environment. The hardware parameters of the difference will not be discussed; however, as can be seen from the screen comparison, the xiaovv infrared irradiation light is more concentrated, and the night vision imaging effect is also clearer.
1 In the old home fish pond, I am currently using an indoor camera, and you can see that the outdoor night vision effect is actually very weak, the ground plants are virtually invisible, and you can only see some reflective objects in the near distance. There is no way to return home for this comparison test due to distance constraints, but based on the indoor comparison effect, I believe that the outdoor night vision effect will be far superior to the indoor PTZ camera.

3 Overall, if you choose outdoor monitoring and security equipment, or position the outdoor camera, the functional experience will be more suitable for outdoor environment use. This xiaovv outdoor PTZ camera has some features, and it is very suitable for outdoor use. In the current situation, many outdoor cameras cannot adjust the monitoring angle, but this xiaovv can support multi-angle adjustment, making it a very good choice.
