EZVIZ launches its brand new Wi-Fi Indoor Smart Security Cam series into the UK market
The EZVIZ Indoor Security Cam is the perfect entry-level device for those looking to protect their home and keep an eye on their property when away or on holiday.
Compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and IFTTT devices, the Indoor Security Cam allows users to view live streams via the Echo Show/Spot and Google hub devices, all whilst offering a 110/130-degree viewing angle on each model respectively.
The cam also includes a magnetic base making it easy to position in multiple locations in the home. With easy set-up via Wi-Fi and installation support available on the EZVIZ app, this device is a great first purchase for anyone interested in upping their security and protecting their loved ones and valuables. Perfect too for monitoring a baby or even keeping an eye on mischievous pets.
The EZVIZ app allows users to view, listen and speak to visitors, pets or family members via their smartphone or PC/Mac which means they can check-in at any time. Thanks to the two-way talk system, users can see, hear and speak via the EZVIZ app to communicate with their loved ones which is possible thanks to the internal microphone that supports audio pickup within five meters.
The intelligent device can also decipher whether some movement doesn't require an alert, such as pets wandering around at home, thanks to the PIR Sensor. However, when something out of the ordinary does occur, push notifications are sent to the user's phone to flag that motion has been detected thanks to the heat sensors and settings on the device.

Users can view live footage or playback at any time on the app where they can also set schedules, create detection areas and share previous filming. There is an IR LED to ensure video footage remains clear even at night.
The Indoor Cam comes with a MicroSD slot allowing for up to 256GB of local storage with a MicroSD card (Not included), allowing users to choose the option of continuous recording within the app, giving them constant monitoring as well as just motion detection recording. Additionally, users can also subscribe to the EZVIZ Cloud Storage system for larger and remote storage options.
The device has two years' warranty and the EZVIZ Tech Support team is on hand 24/7 to respond to any questions.
