Zmodo's 360-degree Pivot camera banishes blind spots
A lot of the security cameras we test do just one simple thing.
they have live streaming.
They might have motion but that's about it.
This $199.50 Zmodo Pivot security camera actually does a whole lot more.
For it's basic specs, it has a 1080 P live streaming camera, it has a 135 degree field of view, and it comes with two door window sensors that you can put anywhere, but it's best to put them within range of the camera because you can actually program the app to pan the camera to capture any activity that these are detecting.
This camera actually has built in motion sensors that cover 360 degrees.
So even If motion happens outside of the traditional field of view it will actually capture that, and the camera can also pan 360 degrees to capture that activity.
Now, it didn't always get that right
Panning to capture, but for the most part, it did pretty good.
It also occasionally had phantom alerts, so I would check the live stream, and I would check the motion clips that it saved to the app.
And actually not find anything which can be pretty annoying.
So it's not super reliable in terms of motion, and that's a [INAUDIBLE] A significant thing.
I do like that this camera has a lot of features and is trying to do a lot of things but, the app, itself, is a little tough to navigate, and, I wish that were more streamlined but, overall this is a nice camera that I definitely recommend if you're trying to capture the whole room.
