INTRODUCTION:

Security these days is more important than ever. Thankfully, technology has caught up and made surveillance much easier. The Qihoo 360 Smart Camera is a great start when it comes to using security cameras.


HANDS-ON REVIEW:

The Qihoo 360 Smart Camera is a fairly small camera that can do more than what it size give out. Out of the box, it comes with a micro USB cord, a charger, a manual and a stick-on pad for wall mounting.

The smart camera itself looks cool and futuristic. It is made out of tough plastic with a mount that has magnets so that it can latch on to metal surfaces. There is no indication of waterproof protection, so you have to take note of that during installation.

The camera has a 12MP lens that allows for 720p recordings. It also has a night vision mode that can definitely help you watch your home or business 24/7. I can definitely say that the camera footage that I got is very good. It is clear and sharp as well. Footage can be saved in a micro SD card since it has a dedicated slot for it.

The night vision mode can be better, but it is acceptable. You can still see details like the facial features of a person. This can definitely help in terms of watching over an in-house patient, an infant or even watching over your home's entry ways.

Another cool feature is the motion detection. The camera did not turn on the night vision mode immediately so I thought there is something wrong. However, once the camera sensed my movements, it turned on the night vision mode automatically. Moreover, you can also get alerts about sudden movements in your camera's vicinity directly on your phone, which is great.

There is also a two way audio included. You can hear audio from your camera to your phone so you can hear what people are talking about near the camera. You can also speak through the Qihoo 360 camera app to blare out audio out of the camera's speakers as well.

The Qihoo 360 camera app is available on Android and iOS. I used it with my Android device and it worked well. The setup is pretty easy since there is a step by step guide with pictures and audio. Once connected, you can easily watch real time footage through the app.

You can also share your camera via QR code so that other members of the family can watch over the footage if you want.


FINAL WORDS:

Overall, the Qihoo 360 Smart Camera is really easy to use. It is highly recommended for parents who want to watch over their kids when they are at work, for people who need to constantly monitor someone like a sick person in the house or an elderly, and for businessmen to check their business operation every now and then even they are somewhere else. In short, this is a great and very affordable security camera for all types of consumers,  and I can say that this is definitely worth the money. 

The base model is selling for just Php2,500 over at the Lazada and Shopee, while the more sophisticated one costs Php3,500. For more info, visit https://www.facebook.com/360smartcameraph/
