Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Price, included SD card. Easy to use. Excellent camera for the price. Magnet base is a nice feature for mounting. Single USB cord for power and set up was a snap. Just downloaded the app, scanned the QR label on the back of the camera and enter in your WiFi settings and that"s it. Took less then 3 min. Picture quality is great. Love the two way audio. Only downside is it only supports 2.4Ghz not 5Ghz wifi. Which in my case did not matter because my router does both. But for the price point you can't have everything. Still works flawless on 2.4ghz. Remote access on Android is a snap with the app. All in all its a great camera. I would definitely recommend this camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy setup. Great picture. I have worked with security cameras for 8 years as a commercial installer and as a software analyst. I was amazed how easily this came up in the app. The only hang up I had was moving off the 5 ghz wifi and onto the 2 ghz but it came right up then. The picture is very clear and night mode works very well. I was a doubter on the mounting hard that comes with it but I have mine by the front door and it has never come down. The only complaint I have is that I cant view the image on my EZVIZ dvr, other than that I have been very happy with it. ** I was given this product by EZVIZ in exchange for a review. This in no way pressured me to make it a good one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice wifi camera This is a nice little wifi camera. It's similar to the EZVIZ Mini, but has 2-way talk, where you can talk to someone in the room where the camera is setup and they can talk back to you, and it comes with a 16GB microSD memory card. It also has a pretty long USB cable. My guess is it's approximately 10 feet in length. The base is magnetic, so it will stick to most flat metal surfaces. If you don't have a metal surface to mount to, don't worry. It comes with a metal plate that can be mounted to any surface using double-sided foam tape (2 round ones included), or screws if you prefer (not included). Setup did have a couple of hiccups while trying to setup the camera on my network. I followed the directions in the manual to push the settings to the camera, but something wasn't communicating correctly going the normal way, even after rebooting my router, and the camera a few times. However, within the app, there is an option to have the app generate a QR code based on your router's info (SSID and passphrase). You then hold your phone up in front of the camera so that it can read it, and pull the configuration. This method worked for me, and I was able to connect the camera to my network. The video quality could be better, but is still . It does get a bit washed out when used in bright conditions. For example, my dad replaced the fluorescent lights in the kitchen (4 tubes), but bought some pretty bright white bulbs instead of the soft white like what was in there, so it was much brighter. In normal lighting, the quality is nice. The microphone is pretty sensitive. I tested it from my phone within the same room, and had to get around 10 feet away before the feedback would stop. Sound quality was pretty good once I was out of feedback range. Overall, this is a nice wifi camera. Even at 720p, the clarity is nice unless the brightness is overwhelmingly bright (as mentioned above). I would recommend this camera to anyone who's looking for a good camera to monitor a room at a decent price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but, better available I was sent this for an unbiased and truthful review. This is not a bad network camera. It works and has all of the features you would need. There are a few issues with it, though. First, the low light level picture is not good. Yes, it has infrared to correct this, but, the mini and mini plus are much better cameras in low light without the IR turned on. Second, when the IR is turned on, sometimes, the camera gets stuck in the "black and white IR mode", which, the camera needs to be reset to fix. Overall, this is not a bad camera. You just have to remember that there are much better cameras available from ezviz.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient good quality camera This camera is very easy to use, very portable, and very good quality video. I can stick this camera anywhere in house. It has an extra long cord and a magnetic base you can install to make it very easy to move around. The setup is also quick and simple. I can then check in on video and audio feed right from my phone, anytime and anywhere. I can even playback video from earlier in the day. The only thing I don't like about it is AC adapter is big/wide, so it takes up a lot of room when you plug it in. Also, the lens has a bit of a fisheye affect, which can be good as it allows you to see a wider angle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Camera! This is a great little indoor camera. The hardware seems well made, and the picture quality is excellent. That said, I had some issues with the initial setup. It appears that the device doesn't handle dual wifi frequencies well. I have both 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz networks, and I couldn't initially get the device to connect via either of the 2 methods in the instruction booklet. After a few attempts, changing various network settings and then connecting the camera directly to the phone, I was able to get it working, and once set up, the camera performs very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and effective! The Mini O works! Simply, easily. That's what i'm looking for with these kinds of devices. Setup takes about 5 minutes tops and the app basically takes care of it all, except you'll need your wifi network password. Once that's done its just plug and play. Login to your app and monitor live or set the motion detection to alert you when your camera sees something nearby. The image is clear and there's settings to use hi, medium and lo resolution if you need. Audio works just great too - not something i really use but its a neat option. Only drawback is the app looks a little dated on both phone and laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this camera! Received the Mini O 720 HD about a month ago. I am not very tech savvy but I followed the instructions on connecting to the wifi and my Iphone and it was easy. I already had the app as we also purchased the EZVIZ outdoor security system with 4 cameras. I am currently using the mini camera in the room that my 95 yr old mother sleeps in. She is bedridden and she has nurses and aides that comes in and take care of her. The picture is excellent day or night. I can see and hear everything that is happening on my Iphone even if I am not in the room or not at home. We are very happy with these cameras.
