Software You can access the Wyze Cam Pan through an iOS or Android device.  This camera cannot be accessed from a web browser.

Zmodo 1080p Pan and Tilt Camera is a Good Value with an Unusual Option

The Zmodo 1080p Pan and Tilt Camera is a solid WiFi entry from a familiar company.  Our prior experience with Zmodo has been positive.  They market cameras that are very competitively priced and couple it with a reliable, easy to use smartphone app.  Too often, we see competitively priced cameras, but fails on the app.  Not the case with Zmodo as the app and hardware are both solid. Our prior Zmodo reviews include the Zmodo EZCam Pro and Zmodo HD Wireless Bullet Camera.  The Zmodo 1080p Pan and Tilt Camera shares the same app so there’s no need to install … Read more

Yi 1080p Dome Camera Exceeds Expectations

We have been fans of the Yi line of cameras for at least a year.  We had a chance to test out the Yi 1080p Dome Camera.  Like the other models we have looked at, this one didn’t disappoint. We previously looked at the YI Dome Pan and Tilt Camera and this one is similar except it has 1080p instead of 720p plus a few unique app features.  We were impressed with the 720p version and the 1080p enhanced version is even better.  If you’re looking for a pan and tilt with good video quality and a stable app, this is a … Read more

YI Dome Pan and Tilt Camera Hands On Review

Reolink Keen Combines Pan and Tilt with Completely Wireless Connectivity

Once in a while we get to see some very unique solutions in home security cameras.  The Reolink Keen is one of those products.  It’s the first truly wireless pan and tilt camera we have seen.  We’re talking wireless on the power as well as connectivity.

We’re always interested in looking at new products and were intrigued when Reolink asked us to look at their wireless entry.   … Read more

Foscam FI8910W Indoor Pan and Tilt Wi-Fi Camera Review

The Foscam FI8910W Indoor Pan/Tilt Wi-Fi Camera was introduced several years ago and is still useful today.  This is one of those home security cameras that require some IT knowledge to setup.  Not for the technically challenged.  Somewhat similar to the Amcrest ProHD Home Security Camera which we recently reviewed, the software interface provides a wide variety of customization options which, in my opinion, aren’t presented in the most user friendly way. However, once I got past the user interface challenges, I found the Foscam camera to be a quality piece of hardware with a lot of usability. Let’s get to the … Read more
