Two smart features that work great together are human detection and instant motion and audio alerts. What this means is that the camera can be set to only send alert notifications to your smartphone if an actual human is detected. This greatly reduces the number of false alarms you receive. Also, having the notifications come straight to your smartphone means that wherever you are in the world you can be on top of your home security (as long as you’re connected to the internet).
The camera can also be used to communicate with whoever is at your home, using the two-way talk function. This can be accessed using the Clan at Home app from wherever you are in the world. This means that if you spot someone at your property who is not supposed to be there you can let them know they’re being monitored. The great thing about the two-way talk feature is that you won’t have to put yourself in any danger to confront an intruder. Just letting them know they’re being watched and the police have been called can be enough to scare them away.
You won’t have to worry about losing your protection when night falls either. This battery-powered security camera with night vision is perfect for the UK when the long, dark nights hit. The infrared night vision on the camera allows you to see into the darkness and feel safe, even at night.
