The Ezviz Mini is the budget security cam you've been waiting for
The Easy Go Mini is a bit of a security camera anomaly.
For starters it has night vision, 720p live stream [INAUDIBLE] Motion alert.
And it costs just 70 bucks.
But it has a couple of problems.
The main issue is that its motion alerts are unreliable.
Often times I would get a push notification and watch the recorded clip only to find out that no discernible activity had happened.
Maybe it was a shadow passing, or a bug flying by.
But whatever it was the center is way too sensitive and there's no way to customize it.
So that's kind of a negative.
If you want to use this as a reliable Dependable motion detector, it's really not the device for you, but then again, like I said, it cost just $70 so for a live streaming HD camera it's actually incredible.
It also has free cloud recording for the first year that you use it.
After that you have to pay a monthly fee, but I think that's really Reasonable.
And also has local storage.
So it actually comes with a 16 gigabyte micro sd card.
So if you wanna look at your videos locally instead of through the cloud, you can do that too.
One other thing that could be a deal breaker to some, is that this camera does not integrate with third party devices and it doesn't Have an F channel, so if you wanna do some more advanced automations between this device and some other devices in your home, you won't be able to do that.
But again, for $70 bucks I think it won't matter to a lot of people.
