Installation

Due to the body consctruction and a featured functions set, the best spot to mount this camera is on a ceiling, and this is exactly that type of mounting that we would advise you to use with this camera. Yet, you still can just put it on the table, but if we talk about the use effeciency, well… you’ve seen what we said.

Specifications

The recording resolution of an IMOU Ranger Pro camera is 1080p, being recorded via 2 mp. 3.6 mm. fixed lens within 89° view angle, in 30 fps. maximum. What really makes this one stand out from other home PT cams is H.265 codec compression rate support, that saves a singificant amount of storage space on the microSD that can inputed in here. Also what’s awesome, is up to a 128GB. microSD card support, and it is highlighted here because we all hate the manufacturer’s cloud drive subscription fee (And we got a lifehacks video how to get rid of that fee here). Common for this Pan Tilt type home cams, there is 355° body pan due to a circling body, and a 90° up and down tilt. A built-in infrared sensor allows us to see legibly within a distance of 10 meters or a 33 feet at night, and we are always awared about things happening thanks to motion detection. Thanks to a microphone and a speaker built-in, we are always able to speak to our visitors or the kids through the cam. The wi-fi module is built in here, and we also have LAN-input on body for the fans of wired connection. The privacy mask function – lets you hide the camera lens inside of body. Else, we have here a smart tracking technology, allowing the camera to automatically track moving objects in sight. Along with that, we have 25 Pan Tilt moving pre-sets, and the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa support. Here we have an IMOU Ranger Pro video-review and also an image shot on the camera in 1080p so you can estimate image quality with your eyes.


Conclusion

IMOU Ranger Pro is good regarding it’s feature set, it’s type, market segment and a price. Comparing to many other cameras, we can highlight a microSD support up to a 128GB, along with the H.265 codec compression rate, that saves us some memory on that microSD. And there also is a smart tracking technology, and we like the app, we like the service, so it’s a yes to us. Anyways, we got a lot of videos adn articles featuring home security cameras, so you can select any.
