Below, you will discover the most notable specifications of the Samsung SmartCam and much more.

Camera Specifications

The SmartCam is fixed with a 1080p HD camera. You can monitor your home and premises through the real-time live stream video. It is important to note that if you are viewing the stream, using your mobile device, the video will be reduced to 720p, but the picture quality is exceptional. Otherwise, you will be viewing a full HD streaming video.

The 128 degree extra-wide lens will allow you to see a much wider viewing angle, which is a necessity, since poachers try to hide in areas away from camera views. The IR Cut Filter is very advanced and capable of providing a vibrant streaming video footage up to 50′ away. If a poacher approaches your home after dark, the camera will surely capture a clear picture of his/her face.

SLE (Samsung Light Enhancer)

Have you ever tried to catch a glimpse of something or someone hiding in the dark shadows? This can be frustrating, leaving one to guess whether or not their home is being targeted by a burglar. This will not be an issue with the SmartCam, because it is integrated with a light enhancer, which will refine those dark areas, by using the available light from the nearby area.

Motion Zone Select

If you have a vulnerable area around your home, you can enhance the security with the motion zone select feature. You simply open up the live stream video of the premises and draw a box around the vulnerable area. You can create three motion zones of interest in the camera’s FOV (field of view).

Storage Options

When you purchase the Samsung SmartCam, you will not be forced to subscribe to Cloud. Instead, you can store your event data on the 32GB microSD card and play it back at anytime via your app enabled device. This storage option also prevents downtime, because the camera will continue to record, even during an Internet outage. If you are concerned about storage space, you should set the camera to record only when an event is detected. The 32GB SD card is capable of storing 3 days of continuous recorded footage.

Event Notifications

When the motion sensor is triggered, an immediate alert will be initiated, sending out an email and push notification to your source device. The event will also be recorded to the microSD card, so you can view it at a later date. One minor setback that may concern you is the camera’s lack of ability to send an attached image or video along with the event notification. This means that you will need to long onto the video playback to view the event video.

Overall Assessment
