- What's Included
Peace of mind is a great feeling in all facets of life but none more-so than when it comes to the safety of your family and home. With the SmartCam HD Pro 1080p Wi-Fi IP Camera from Samsung you can receive peace of mind that your family and home are safe even while you’re away. The SmartCam can be setup just about anywhere within a home, needing simply to be within reach of a power outlet. Once connected to a power outlet, simply connect the camera to a wireless network (can be connected via Ethernet as well) and voila, the camera feed can now be viewed remotely from a smart device or computer. Whether you’re on vacation, out and about, or staying late at the office you’ll now be able to remotely check in on your home whenever you feel the need.
SmartCam HD Features
The diminutive SmartCam HD Pro comes packed with features at the disposal of the user. While remotely viewing this camera from the convenience of a smartphone, tablet, or computer users will have the ability to pan, tilt and zoom (PTZ) the camera to fully view a room. The PTZ function is a great feature but pointless if the resolution of the camera is low and you can’t make out what you’re looking at. Luckily with the SmartCam this problem is moot as it has a full 1080p high-definition resolution to help ensure crystal clear video. It takes more than just 1080p resolution to create a good viewing experience which is why the Samsung SmartCam also uses a 128° wide angle lens which helps monitor larger areas at a time leaving less blind spots. Additionally, the camera has Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) which allows for higher quality video when dealing with tricky lighting situations. For true 24/7 effectiveness a camera needs to be able to function at nighttime in pitch black conditions which is why a built-in IR (infrared) LED sits below the lens. The IR LED automatically activates when lighting conditions warrant it and allow the camera to continue to see in black and white (B&W when Lux is less than 5) from up to 16 feet away.
Motion Zone Select is another great feature of the SmartCam. With this feature, specific areas in the camera’s field-of-view can be designated to monitor for motion (up to 3), such as a door or window. If the camera detects movement from one of these designated areas it will alert the user(s) via a notification message. In the event the camera is being used to monitor a baby it can also be set for audio detection in which case it will alert via notification in the event the child starts making noise. The cameras built-in mic and speaker also allow for 2-way audio communication. Bored at work and want to say “hi” to your pet? Does your stirring baby need to hear the soothing sound of your voice to fall back to sleep? No problem. With the 2-way audio feature your voice will be heard from the camera’s speaker.
In order to save video footage, good or bad, from the camera a memory card will be needed. The Samsung SmartCam has a built-in microSDXC memory card that is compatible with microSDXC cards up to 64GB. Once a memory card has been added you can choose between Continuous Recording and Event Recording. Continuous Recording will record all video taken from the camera 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and simply overwrite the data on the card when needed. Event Recording conserves memory space and is ideal if using a smaller storage memory card as it will automatically record video only when an event (motion/audio) is detected.
Remote Viewing and the App
This camera can be viewed remotely from anywhere as long as internet access is available. From a PC or Mac computer the camera can be viewed through an online web viewer compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8 (only desktop UI) or higher, and Mac OSX 10.7 or higher. The camera is also compatible for remote viewing via an app (see links below) for Android OS Jellybean or higher, and iOS 5 or higher.

- Great little Camera Review by Bill Jones
Great little Camera
I was looking for a camera that I could put in my garage just as a extra security blanket. This little camera is GREAT for what I want it to do. Cameras in this category and around the same price but they cant do everything this one can. This is a must buy.
