Lorex Smart Indoor Cam Review

A smart cam is a combination between a video camera and a speaker. When you activate the camera, it will stream live audio-visual content from wherever you place it. Most users will want to place the camera where they can easily monitor activity in the living room or another prominent area in the home. You can also use the device to monitor your children or pets if you think they might be doing something dangerous or embarrassing.

Lorex is one of the leaders in smart camera technology and their products are popular among several demographics. The Indoor Cam provides a reliable and easy-to-use experience in placing a live video feed in your home. If you’re interested in a tool that can help you monitor your children or pets without having to worry about technical challenges, the Lorex Smart Indoor Cam could be the ideal companion for your home.

Features

This particular smart camera provides several features that make it stand out from other similar products. The first is the inclusion of a speaker, and the second is the fact that it connects to WiFi so you can access the camera’s content from anywhere within the home. In addition, there’s also a front camera for video conferencing and a night vision camera with a built-in strobe light. The camera’s form factor is quite slim so it can easily fit on the back of a shelf or mounted on the wall using an included mounting bracket. The video camera can record at up to 1080p HD resolution and has dual microphones for clear audio recording. Since the camera is WiFi enabled, you can also use it to monitor and control other smart devices in your home via the free Lorex Cloud.

While all of these features might seem amazing, it would be a mistake to purchase this product solely on the basis of its attractive package. The truth is that even the most sophisticated technology can fail if the hardware itself is faulty. Fortunately, the Lorex Smart Indoor Cam is built with quality components and comes with well-thought-out installation instructions, so there’s very little chance it will cause you any headaches. Still, it’s always a good idea to purchase hardware of this nature from a well-known brand such as Lorex since you might experience a bit of a learning curve getting used to using all of these new features. But once you do, you’ll wonder why you didn’t buy this product sooner.

Design

The form factor of the product is quite sleek and modern looking, so it blends in well with most home interiors. The front LED light automatically illuminates when the camera’s sensor detects motion, making it great for keeping an eye open during the day or when you’re using other devices in the room (e.g. a TV). The product is actually a series of three separate cameras that snap together when you press the button on the back of the unit to form a continuous video stream. This feature allows you to monitor several areas in your home at once and the cameras also have a built-in speaker so you can listen in on live conversations or stream music without having to set up a speaker system.

As for the rear camera, it has a 120-degree viewing angle and an additional 60-degree facing angle with a motion detection sound trigger. This allows you to place the camera where you want and still be able to see what’s happening whether you’re looking at the screen from the front or an adjacent side. There’s also a built-in microphone that allows you to video conference with other family members or friends via the WiFi for free during any time of day. The only downside is that these features come with a price: the camera is fairly large and heavy at 6.4 ounces and has a whopping $699.99 price tag. If you want a dependable camera that can provide HD video quality and have all of the above features, you might have to shell out some extra cash.

Quality Of The Video

While there’s certainly nothing wrong with the camera’s design or price, the video quality of this particular product might not be as good as you’d expect for the price. When we tested the camera, we were rather underwhelmed by the screen’s sharpness and color accuracy, especially when viewing videos from the front. We think this is because of the screen’s small size – it’s only about the size of a small paperback book and has a pixel count of only 2304 x 512. This means the video will appear a bit blurred and the colors are generally dull when compared to what you’d see on a larger screen.

Still, if you’re looking for a slim, inexpensive video camera that can fit in the palm of your hand and provide HD quality, the Lorex Smart Indoor Cam could be a good option. Just make sure you get one with an SD card slot so you can store your clips on there instead of relying on the device’s internal memory which will soon fill up.

Storage

This product provides users with 256GB of internal storage so you won’t have to worry about running out of room even if you shoot lots of video content. In addition, the device also supports micro SD cards so you can expand the internal storage as much as you want. Just make sure you don’t remove the SD card while the camera is plugged in or powered on, as this could cause data loss since the card has a limited lifespan.

While the camera provides a lot of storage, it’s still not the best choice if you plan on using it to store lots of family photos and albums since there’s currently no room on the micro SD card for extra data.

Overall, if you’re looking for a slim, robust, and easy-to-use video camera that can store lots of content, the Lorex Smart Indoor Cam might be a good choice. Just remember to purchase one that has an SD card slot so you can upload your footage to your PC or Mac for further editing if you need to.

Conclusion

In our opinion, the Lorex Smart Indoor Cam is a decent choice for users who are just getting started with video editing or want a reliable, easy-to-use tool for livestreaming videos from within their homes. The camera captures HD video at up to 30 frames per second and has a microphone for making video calls, so it can do as it says on the tin. Since it has a micro SD card slot and supports up to 256GB of storage, you don’t have to worry about running out of room even if you shoot lots of video content.

As for the price, we think it’s a bit on the expensive side since you’re paying for all of those high-end features. If you want a continuous HD video stream without any glitches, there are cheaper options that provide a similar experience.
