I have played with the surveillance product for over three years. It is improved from the 10000 pixels to megapixel until now. Moreover, the evolution of functions and app also has great development.
Regardless of the technology and the design of software, the easier using way for consumers is the main direction for all Monitoring company. Monitoring can be very professional, and also be easy and close to our life
The professional application is not my forte, but I have experienced for the applications in daily life. Because of the requirement of my family and some visitors will come to my office. These years, monitoring products helped me a lot.
I have used nearly 10 different brands of surveillance products, their special features are different, but until now, I haven’t seen the most perfect products.
High quality is good, but the price will be more expensive or bad installation.
Conversely, for the good installed product, the quality of the picture is not good or the function is not close to the users’ needs.
When I was a child, I have imaged that everyone can watch TV in the bathroom and
We also can make a video call in the future. Now, we did it all and using a different way to achieve it.
I didn’t know what it will be in the future. However, we only have radio waves at that time. Therefore, I guess that the video transmission just like watching three televisions but it is totally different now! “Network” is completely changed our lives!
2CU network surveillance video, for me, is much more eye-catching than other products in the past three years. It is equipped with network monitoring, video telephone, security guard and easy operation.
When the vendor told me that this product will be launched soon in the world, I wanted to take the first look at it without thinking.In a pile of monitoring commodities, 2CU network surveillance video has a different shape. The monitoring has a numeric keypad and it is just like a video telephone.
I made a thoroughly study of how it works and the conditions in market from the vendors. This product is good, but it should also have a good introduction, so I brought two for testing. (One to put in the office and one at my home)
Why it has a SIM card? Is that for on-line 3G?
Ha ~When I first saw it, I was a little confused. However, I instantly feel it is an amazing product.
No wonder, I think this card is the essence of this Know-How, and I believe that is patented.
Card above NO.1XXXXX 6 digits, it can be considered a network video number
But we don’t need to pay for the telecommunications. All authentication data and settings are in the SIM card.
The SIM card puts into another table; it will become your number on the other sets of 2CU video. (Like cell phones)This product was entirely made from the professional phone hardware manufacturers.
In fact, its accessories are very simple.
Body, transformers, wireless antenna!
The other two samples are for the testing, the reed sensors, alert the remote.
Camera with infrared night vision and motion detection function
( 7 infrared LED lights, night vision distance up to 10 meters )
And we can use the control buttons below to control the vertical and horizontal angle
( Horizontal : 355 °, Vertical: 90 )
Light can be turned around and also has night vision, it is much better than the
half of the IP-Cam.
On the back, left to right
Wired network hole, USB slot, wireless antenna interface , 3C SIM card hole , Micro USB hole, External devices with learning key , the total power switch , 3.5mm audio output hole and power jack.
Well, how to do a good installation?
1 . Install an antenna if you want to connect to the wireless
If you connect to a wired network, you should install the wire line.
2 . Insert the 3C SIM card, please remember put the opposite side of
the wafer surface and the beveled edge should put it first.
3 . Plug in the power and then turn on the main switch
After the standby screen, the time is factory default setting
It may not be accurate before the network is connected. There are exclamation points; it indicates that the network is not yet connected.
But 3C SIM card is ready, USB also insert.
Now you can play with some functions.
But like some of the details monitor settings, it also should be set up
If there is an event, here you can make a setting of sending mail.
Binding number refers to the alert numbers (it usually reset the number of 2CU phone side)
You can choose to open or close the motion detection, I open it in general.
There detects movement may also decide to make the buzzer call.
Both iOS and Android has ” 2CU ” app
It is fast for setting this machine.
Let’s make a call to my phone mi2.
Because I have not set up address book, it will directly show numbers.
If you have set the name, it will show the name.
In the future, the optional accessories (non-essential accessories)
Remote sensing and magnetic reed
Press A remote control will open warning, press B to shut alert
As for the magnetic reed switch, I have no suitable place to want to install.
This switch can be installed in the place, where people do not want to open windows and doors or drawers.
When you open an alert, reed disconnected, it will trigger the alert and making a recording.
Using a mobile phone app and making a call to the video phone.
I ordered Outlet Office will appear six grids.
It shows the functions of making a video call, monitoring, event logging, control alert, video playback, and basic information on this number.
If you can press #, it can open the guard or (the alert switch in app control / optional remote control A button )
Then if someone moved, the settings of your phone app will notice (the current version should open app, in the future is likely to be revised)
Because it is stored in a USB thumb drive (or Micro SD Lane), the flash drive plugged into the computer can be read.
There will be will two subdirectories below the Npc directory
Capture is for screenshots; record is for video
Children are smart, they will make a video call when they came back home.
Now, tw0 of them will go home to play the video phone. Making a call requires just only dial and press the call key. If we did not live with elderly, we could use this to chat to them at any time. Sometimes, we didn’t have enough time to go back. Making a visible image can hear the sound through greetings
Finally to sum up the advantages and disadvantages:
1 . Installation is simple – this is a big problem of most IP-Cam. A lot of people didn’t know how to open Port, set up DDNS, etc.
2 . Support Two-way video intercom duplex – Currently, most of the IP-Cam are not offering this function.
3 . Wired and wireless networks – you can select best way for installation
4. Have a physical action buttons – although app can control, with a controlled entity key operation will be much faster.
5 . Support control Pan Tilt around and multi-angle night vision function – only some IP-Cam have this two functions simultaneously
6 . Dedicated app can keep control – app can have two-ways communication.
7 . Interface as a telephone – It is easy for the elderly to operate it.
8 . No additional charges – in addition to the original cost of the network, no extra charges
1 . Image pixel is slightly lower – this one is cost considerations, and under
the 3.5 -inch VGA screen could see it clearly.
2. Mobile tablet app must reside in the current development of PUSH notification.
In the future should be revised.
3 . Larger than normal IP-Camera- this is choose by the person.
Based on the above, I personally feel that the application surface can be very useful in our life and we also can adopt it as commercial application or at home.
It can be a communication tool for family and friends and also can be the business dealings.
If you are frequent traveler to customers or vendors, or even “nice present” to send one to them.
This is equal to install a line of communication at any time
Some might say that Line, Skype, Whatsapp, Wechat, QQ …etc, these apps could make a video call, but it expects the functions of calls, monitoring, security, video recording and warning.
Now, many mobile tablets didn’t have physical buttons, this for the elderly is still inconvenient to use.
Dialing the number and press the call, it’s that simple!
