It’s a common thing when companies produce a “revision” model with a quite slight differences every year, EZviz is not an exclusion. We got on our office an explicit represantative of that fact – Ezviz C3WN 2019 revision model of a 2018 Ezviz С3W EzGuard. And we will reveal a box contents, compare it to the last year’s model and also connect it and show you a video, shot on this cam so you can estimate the quality. Ezviz C3WN is available on a Pipl Systems Website 🙂
Contents / The Looks
Inside of the box we have: a
- Drill template;
- Quick start guide;
- Exact С3WN camera;
- Screws & Anchors;
- Twelve volts power brick;
- Waterproof kit. Basically a plastic wire holders to isolate the spots where a wires compound from water and dust in accordance with IP sixty six protection rate.
The first thing you can notice about the camera – it has 2 antennas for a Wi-fi signal transmission. EZviz declares it is designed this this way to enlarge the wi-fi signal transmission area and it makes quite a strong signal. The cam is metal, and we got a tail with the power and RJ-45 LAN-cable ports for the fans of wired connection, though the cam supports Wifi. On the downside you’ll find a reset button, and the microSD input is located behind a nailed cover that you got to unscrew to reveal an input, well that was made to add an extra protection due to cam’s outdoor status.

EZviz finally decided to abandon the 720p version ang thus behold – 1080p FullHD only on 30 frames per second maximum. I think this should have been done much earlier. Commonly, we have main specifications on the box side. EZviz С3WN offers night vision up to a 100 feet or 30 meters, that makes this cam to stand out, though this is quite an average number, but I guess it is permissible for a consumer segment. Not that bad as it could’ve been. It also contains microphone inside, able to record audio as far as 16 feet or 5 meters away from cam, but we don’t have a two-way audio here, as the cam has no speaker. What else makes this one stand out is IP66 protection rate and it means the dust tightness and a water resistance against powerful jets. What I don’t like is that the cam has no infrared sensor and the motion detection is happening on a software level only. The supported microSD rate here is up to 256GB, which is good, Ezviz lets us quit paying a cloud subscription fee, that’s nice. For the connection you’ll need a twelve volts power brick.
Activation & Connection
The same it was with Ezviz C6CN and EZ360 – Ezviz C3WN 2019 and C3W are identical. Despite a few extremely minor and hard to notice distinctions, this is the same Ezviz C3W 2018. So it is definitely does not worth updating if you have one, but you if are just going to – pick the newest one due to a manufacturer support and a new parts used in assembling. Though we got both of them available on the Pipl Systems Store 🙂
