Home Security Camera – Amcrest ProHD

Be there, even if you’re not. This camera allows you to view and keep an eye on what you care about most, no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

Not only does it take 60 seconds to set up the camera (via a smart phone app) but during the day you can stream, record and playback in High Definition (1080p) and at night, it switches over to night vision.

Control the pan, tilt and zoom of the camera from the app as well as connecting the camera to your existing alarm system so it can activate the record feature if your alarm sounds. You can also broadcast crystal clear audio using the powerful embedded speaker, and listen in on what’s important with an integrated noise-canceling microphone.

Save all your recordings to the cloud, an internal micro SD card or an eternal hard drive.
