EZVIZ Husky HD 1080p Outdoor Wi-Fi or PoE Video Security Bullet Camera, 16GB MicroSD, Works with Alexa using IFTTT
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: Build quality of the unit seems outstanding, durable, and it looks great.

HD quality video is clear and smooth, night vision is very clear and has a decent range as well.

You can record video or save still images.

Comes with a 16GB microSD card.

Cons: The wireless adapter was not working in the camera I received. Looking at other reviews on other sites, this seems to be a pretty common problem. It works fine with a wired connection via Ethernet cable, but it would not connect to my WiFi at all. That's a shame because that would have been one of the best things about this camera.

No motion detection that will send you a warning via email or phone notification. Maybe I'm just spoiled by other camera products out on the market...

There doesn't seem to be any desktop application that I can find, at least not easily by looking at the downloads on their webpage. The only thing there seems to be for viewing the camera is the smartphone app, which is fine for what it does, but it would be so much more versatile if there was a desktop application.

Other Thoughts: I really don't have that much to say about this camera other than the picture is great, but it lacks functionality that I've come to expect that is offered by other cameras on the market, such as a desktop application and not just smartphone access, the ability to detect motion and send you a warning, and record video or still images automatically when the motion detection is set off,

There seems to be an issue with the quality of the internal wireless adapter. Reviews on other websites point this out as well, often enough to make me believe there is a reasonable chance the WiFi in any unit may not work, and this wasn't just an occasional, rare defect. It works fine connected via Ethernet cable, but without functional WiFi, it's much less versatile.

Honestly, I would look elsewhere for an easy to use WiFi camera.

TP-Link RE590T AC1900 Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender

5 out of 5 eggs EggXpert Review - TPLink RE590T WiFi Range Extender 06/26/2016

This review is from: TP-Link RE590T AC1900 Touch Screen Wi-Fi Range Extender

Pros: Extremely easy to set up. It probably didn't even take 5 minutes after opening the box to have it put together, plugged in, logged in, and ready to go.

After logging into your existing WiFi network, it can repeat the exact same name and password, which means that any of your existing devices can connect effortlessly to the extended network area, without you needing to do anything.

Expands your network range quite a bit. It would be excellent for those with larger, multi-story houses or large properties where you would want access to the network outside of your house.

Compatible with both 2.4GHz and 5GHz network connections, and shows all the network information you'd ever need at the tip of your finger.

Keeps up to pace with online gaming and streaming video, I see no difference in the speed and capabilities of the extended WiFi or my original network.

Cons: Just one complaint... and it may be a little strange. The ventilation holes on top of the unit are definitely unique and out-of-the-ordinary. Some people may like it, but I don't think it's very aesthetically pleasing. There's no real pattern... just chaos and rectangular holes everywhere. It of course doesn't affect how the unit works, but it's just a personal issue with the appearance.

Other Thoughts: My current WiFi router has an approximate range of maybe 40-50 yards, and taking this extender to the edge of that range, it extends the signal about another 20-30 yards as far as I can tell, and strengthens the signal in-between making coverage overall more reliable and consistent.

The touchscreen is a little smaller than the average smart phone. It's not too small, but just big enough to get the job done.

This WiFi range extender is powerful and easy to set up and use, and I would recommend it to anyone who can work a smartphone and needs a little more range with a lot of speed out of their wireless network.
