Mini Trooper

EZVIZ Mini Trooper HD 720p Smart Home Wire-Free Battery Operated Indoor/Outdoor Security Camera, Weatherproof I{65 Surveillance, 8 GB MicroSD, Night Vision is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from First wireless camera added to wired setup The camera works great when it is wirelessly connected , however it disconnected a lot . I had to be at home and re sync it to make it work with the transmitter base several times daily. When I would leave home and check in on all my other cameras , the wireless device would be off line. Transmitter base was plugged into router, wireless device would go off line if no movement. Will play with settings , adjust position and other factors of location distance may help. I do wish it had a rechargeable port , or power port option to save battery life and continue connectivity better. I do like the magnetic base and alarm feature , when connected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly plug and play! I received my camera right before leaving to go on a 2 week vacation and really didn't have any time to fiddle with installation instructions or mess with it much but it really was a godsend. I connected the base station with the app through the Wi-Fi and then synced the camera, placed it somewhere aimed at the front door and we left the next morning. For the next couple of weeks, every time our friend came over to check on our bunny and water the plants I got a notification on the phone and through the app was able to review the footage and make sure that it was just her coming in and not an intruder. Gave us peace of mind while we were gone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good wire free security camera I received this product for free for my honest review. This camera can do up to HD 720p resolution which is very good quality image compare to other security camera. A nice feature of this camera is using battery so i do not need to find power outlet. I can mount it anywhere i like. I wish it can do rechargeable battery instead of disposal one. This camera had a real PIR motion sensor on it, so it detected very accurate motion. The night mode is very good. I attached a sample of image that i took in my garage with total blackout. I also included sample image of my day time in my backyard. it is very clear. Overall, i am very happy with this camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera system! This is a fantastic wireless camera system! I love that the camera has a magnetic mount which has opened up many possibilities for surveillance in and around my home. The HD picture is super clear and night vision is superb. So far the battery life is holding strong and hasn't depleted much from my toying around with it. I only have one issue currently which keeps me from giving it 5 stars and that is it doesn't seem to record motion unless alerts are enabled. I believe this is merely a software issue since my Mini 360 records all motion but only alerts me if I elect to. Seems like an easy issue to fix via firmware update which EZVIZ does a good job of.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, solid wireless camera. Great field of view I received this camera to give a review. Camera comes in very nice package, attractive to view. Main reason I choose the camera is because it has a magnetic base and works with CR2 batteries. I put some rechargeable batteries, and they last about 10 days. This is good because I have to climb on a ladder in order to get the camera and exchange them. This is a PIR activated camera. Once the PIR sensor detects movement the camera shoots a picture. This is actually a good idea, since other cameras detecting movement work on the image, and that gives a lot, I mean a lot, of false positives. Now, the images are sometimes dark with this Mini Trooper camera. I think the firmware has to be adjusted in order to let the camera adapt for contrast. It also needs to stamp the date and time. The moving image of the subject in front of the camera is blurred even moving naturally, not running or something. This camera uses a link device to extend the range of your WIFI network. It is actually good, since the SD card goes there, and you can link other cameras.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfectly versatile I received this camera a month ago. I use it to monitor my front door and and yard. It covers a very wide angle allowing me to cover more for less. The picture quality is great. It was very easy to mount. My only issue was with the magnet. I kept having to readjust it because it slipped. Setting it up was very easy. I called customer service to walk me through it. The gentleman that helped me was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. The whole process took less than two minutes. It works seamlessly with the app and I have had no issues to date. I highly recommend this product and the entire EZVIZ family.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Constantly goes offline and difficult setup I thought wireless would be simple setup like the Mini O I had bought before. There's a separate base that is required to be plugged in and near your router if you want to use Ethernet cable (not wireless). There was Wi-Fi option but the instructions and process were cumbersome. So I get it set up and the video quality and field of view is great. But it keeps going offline and I can't view anything without going to the room and resetting the camera. So it's not usable. Emailed support over a week ago and no response.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Position Anywhere - Great Views! This camera is awesome. I was able to locate it in a tree in front of the house. It sees everything going on on our street and alerts me every time something or someone passes by. The 10 seconds video clips are easy to review in the app. I wish I would be able to make out license plates of cars going by, but that's still not always possible. Also, alerts going off in the middle of the night can be annoying, but luckily, that's adjustable. Batteries have lasted longer than I expected so far. With hundreds of notification in less than a month, they are still half full. All and all very happy with this camera.
