Netvue Smart LED Floodlight Camera ROCKS IoT Home Security with easy to use installation and smartphone management, Amazon cloud integration, and night vision!
In minutes a home or building can operate an IoT security camera system.
As with the Netvue Wireless Video Doorbell, we were able to conduct a Hands On Review of the Netvue Smart Floodlight Cam and the results were intriguing.
The guinea pig was my house.
I happened to have an ancient faulty floodlight on the side of the house with a motion sensor that only went on if you hit it with a strategically thrown baseball (or bat).
If you just want to upgrade your energy inefficient and dully-lit glaring eyesore of a floodlight, the Netvue Smart LED Floodlight Camera is a sexy answer for $170.
But the stark, clear bright light that emits upon someone entering within 50 feet and the 116-degree radius of the sensor is only one of the many features encased within the surprisingly light unit.
From an aesthetic point of view, the Netvue Smart Floodlight Cam looks damn good.
The two sleek LED lamps are 1500 lumens of oh so bright light.
And instead of two fragile glass bulbs, like bulbous eyeballs, the flat plastic LED’s of the Netvue stand out less since they match the rest of the uniform casing.
This crafty smart home device hooks up to the Alexa Echo Show IoT hub.
The Netvue App syncs in seconds with the floodlight; this took me a minute because I was too far from the unit and did not realize there was a short window for syncing but once I retried and was closer to the base it fired right up.
The wiring could not be easier.
This is a standard two-wire 110 volt setup, which replaces most old floodlight connections hardwired to the house.
Aside from the many bells and whistles, can you say super accurate PIR Sensor (Passive Infrared Sensor) and 720p video over 2.4GHz WiFi, the practicality of the cloud backup is extraordinary.
Netvue offers a free trial of their 24/7 seven day Netvue Cloud backup video storage.
And on top of that the Netvue Smart LED Floodlight Camera comes with instant integration to Amazon’s cloud platform, Amazon Web Services, where Motion alert clips are saved in the cloud for a week for life for free.
I will say that again . . . free for life backups, on Amazon, of your video clips, including the world’s biggest squirrel chewing through our garbage can before it met its demise at the hands of the puppy, Indiana.
