EZVIZ Mini HD 720p WiFi Home Security Camera with Motion Detection, 130 degree View, Night Vision, Works with Alexa using IFTTT (Special Offer 12 Month Cloud Storage w/ 7 day Playback)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: - Small design.
- Magnet is strong.
- Wide 130-degree lens.
- Very nice looking.
- Night Vision.
- Highly Secure.
- Motion Detection.

Cons: - Set up instructions are over simplified.
- Set up was problematic at best.
- Blue LED is very bright at night.
- High security protocols can be tough.


Other Thoughts: I really do not recommend this item. This was an Item that I was really excited about reviewing until I started trying to set it up. The Security on this system is amazingly good but can also be really problematic for the first time due to connection difficulties and circus like ways of syncing the device to my mobile phone.

Setup again caused most of my problems. I generally use my 5Ghz connection speed but after trying to set it up twice I realized it needed to use the Wireless 2.4Ghz on my router and it took me 5 times to get it right. Also holding the phone two inches from the device as it set up was not comfortable as I had already mounted the camera before set up. That was my mistake but I figured that since the instruction manual was so short and easy that it would be simple to set up.

If you buy this product, make sure to place the camera next to the router and have your smart phone ready for setup. The QR on the label uses the app from the EZVIZ app so don't use your regular QR scanner. This is a security feature as well but you don’t know that until you try to figure out what you are doing wrong.

Setting up to the Phone was the toughest part. According to the instructions you have to keep the smart phone 2 inches away from the camera to sync the device. This process took me several times and honestly I had to stop after the second time and go read some reviews before I got the right idea on what was causing the problem.

This is not a bad camera. The 720 HD is not bad and the night vision with motion detection is good. I really didn't expect to get an SD card with the camera since the price is so low.

This is definitely not a Plug and Play device. It's a difficult process to set up with the Highly Secure connection process, but I really cannot in good conscience recommend this device even with its almost Bank Security protocol.

The look of the device is very Apple looking and can fit in any room as long as its close enough to the router to get the signal. The blue light in the front that shows that the camera is connected and on startled me as I walked into my kitchen to check the door-lock before bed. "Wow, that light is brighter than I thought it was." The blue LED can really get you at first but I guess that could be enough to scare off any intruder trying to access the home at night as they would probably think the Police was already on scene with that flashing light.

Pros: -Board has been upgraded to latest technology
-Amazing power from 3.1 for super charging
-Good looking
-Layout is good with M.2 above the Graphics PCIeX Slot
-Fan header for water pump
-Blue LED lit in places to enhance builds' looks
-Newest U.2 slot for Intel 750 Raid controls

Cons: -The Color is blue and white only
-LEDs are only one color where the Designier has RGB lighting
-Accessories can be limiting due to Processors limited lanes available.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely Recommend this board if you think it's for you. It has so many accessories that you are only limited by the amount of parts you want to plug into it. This is from the processors lack of lanes and not the boards fault.

This board has gone through some changes and upgrades and they have been trying very hard to make this the best Z170X that you can buy for this price. The changes have been additions of the U.2 and a few other upgrades from the older version.

This latest edition has lighting that is very nice but not too much. There are too many things to cover in one small review but I think that anyone that likes the looks of this new board will find that they have gotten a really nice piece of Technology.
