Panasonic KX-HNC800B Smart Home Monitoring Camera Review

By   November 12, 2016

Indoor Smart cameras are a great addition to an existing surveillance system. Many people turn to these devices for baby and pet monitoring, because they offer so many benefits. Panasonic released the KX-HNC800B Indoor Home Monitoring Smart Camera on the market November 10, 2016. What sets this Smart camera apart from similar models is the embedded manual Sliding Privacy Shutter. This feature allows users to disable the microphone and camera, when monitoring is no longer needed, by simply sliding the shutter up or down.

Two-Way Communication

One feature that is often missing in indoor cameras is a two-way communication system, but not with this model. The system, consisting of a speaker and microphone, allows users to communicate with family members in the same room as the device. This is not to even mention the built-in full HD camera (1920 X 1080), with 142-degree diagonal wide-angle lens and night vision. When you combine all of these features together, you will have clear view of your family, while communicating with them.

Motion And Audio Sensors

With the embedded sound and motion sensors, video imaging is automatically activated and begins recording in two seconds. When one or both sensors are activated, an alert will be transmitted to the user’s app-enabled device. Recorded video clips are recorded to the microSD card for playback on laptop or PC.

By accessing the app user interface, you can access a live real-time video feed, so you can see what your children or pets are up to. If the child or pet is agitated, you can utilize the two-way talk feature to calm them down.

Another great onboard feature that is worth mentioning is the temperature sensor. The sensor monitors the temperature in any interior space and if the temperature drops below or increases higher than the preset range. It will also recommend making thermostat adjustments for optimal comfort.

Overall Assessment

The Panasonic KX-HNC800B Panasonic Smart Home Camera has a very stylish and trendy cylinder design. It is black in color, so it can be incorporated into any décor. The base can be utilized as a desk stand or wall mount installation. A separate hub is not required for operation, only a wireless connection and electricity.
