Ezviz C1C: Home Security Camera
Fully indoor and the freshest on this list – Ezviz C1C that comes in 2 versions: 720p / 110° view angle and 1080p / 130°. We got here a two-way talk option owing to built-in speaker and a microphone. Built-in infrared sensor covers the distance of 12 m./40 ft., which is quite better compared to the average indicator for this type of cams.
Our favorite feature here is a strong magnetic basement, perfectly fitted in the home camera concept
What’s awesome here – the 256 GB microSD cards support. Compared to other manufacturers, Ezviz lets you save a lot of your records onto the card with no need to pay for the cloud storage.
To conclude, Ezviz has perfectly realized the concept of a cheap home entry-level wi-fi camera with some formula improvements. You can observe and make sure your children are fine when you’re away and even speak to them. And also, Ezviz C1C saves your money.
Ezviz C3A: Wireless Security Camera
1080p Video, two-way audio, built-in passive infrared sensor enabling the motion detect feature, the night vision up to 25 feet or 7 and a half meters distance – good. Now the interesting ones – the first Ezviz 100% wireless camera featuring 5 500 mAh rechargeable and removable battery. A 126° view angle to cover your whole entrance area.

It’s a perfect fit for your front yard or the entrance area, you can even install this one in house ant it will be okay. And you are finally got rid of wires!
Ezviz C3WN: In Case You Need A Distance
Unlike the C3A, Ezviz C3WN is a wire-requiring camera, although the video signal transmitted over the internet. As well as the C3A model, it was designed to be installed outdoors, due to IP66 rating. The IP66 means the dust tightness and a water resistance against powerful jets. The IP65 rating, that the C3A model has only a water resistance against a weak raindrop. What really makes the C3WN stand out is the 30 meters / 100 feet night vision view distance. And this is how you can guess the camera’s intention – a perfect fit for a large backyard owners. Of the rest, the cam offers 1080p FullHD recording quality, software motion detection, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi support and the microSD card up to 256 GB support. Also, these 2 wi-fi antennas are here to make the connection stronger and your experience continuous within no breaks in the communication.
