For example, if you want to observe a playroom, where most of the activity happens close to the ground, you probably don’t want something that’s positioned too high without a good view of the floor (though an overhead fisheye lens like the UOKOO could work well for a setup like this).In all 50 states you’re allowed to install video surveillance equipment in your own home, whether those being recorded are aware of it or not.Finally, I only considered products that have been endorsed by real people who had purchased the device and used it to keep their home and family safe.The specific camera you choose will depend somewhat on the room you want to monitor, as some designs will work well from certain vantage points but not from others.I can see this working well in a playroom, where the activity is usually close to the floor anyway, or in a kitchen, where outlets are often placed above counters, offering a higher viewpoint.There are plenty of great security cameras that are both reliable and equipped with modern features like app monitoring and smart motion detection, but it’s strangely difficult to find hidden cameras of the same quality.Despite this, its third-place position is due to its lack of night vision, limiting its use to well-lit situations.To be clear, most charger cameras do not have night vision capabilities, so while disappointing, this lack of an important feature is not out of the ordinary for similar products.
The modern addiction to the sweet nectar of a fully charged phone battery means that chargers are everywhere, and the presence of one of these devices won’t raise any suspicion.
While it probably won’t catch the eye of someone coming in and out quickly, like a burglar, someone like a caregiver who spends more time in the house may notice it eventually.
Because it’s a little more conspicuous, I can see this working better against theft or in a situation where the caregiver knows there’s a camera around.
UOKOO’s app receives motion detection alerts as the action unfolds, allows you to check in whenever you want via livestream, and gives you the option to remotely speak to whoever’s in the monitored room using the two-way microphone.
In case your Wi-Fi fails (which we all know happens sometimes), the Micro SD card provides local storage for your footage, ensuring you won’t miss a thing.
