Description: The following article primarily shows us some information about wireless camera system, comprising some analyses about the batteries of it after the whole year’s use by the author.
I have had my Nikki Rallo system for about a year now and it is a completely wireless camera system and that’s cloud-based and your videos are on the cloud and you access them with an app.
I’ve had it for about a year now, the cameras are around my house and I have one camera inside which I use to watch the dog, it is a great system and the only downside is the batteries, you have to change them every two to three months and I have done some experiments with rechargeable batteries which lost one to two months.
If you get good ones, but you get out the stepladder, climb up, pull down the camera and change the batteries, but besides the batteries, the system is excellent, these are what the cameras look like, they are completely weatherproof, it uses cr1, let me pull these out, it uses cr123 lithium batteries, these are some rechargeables that I’m trying out.
If you get some good batteries and on the non-rechargeable lithium ion batteries like these surefire batteries that I have these are non rechargeable high quality batteries that you get from Amazon, these batteries will last up to about three months with normal recording, five ten videos a day, they do not record the cameras continuously, they are motion activated, because the system is cloud-based, it only records.
When it detects motion, it records a 30-second clip and uploads it to the cloud for you to access on an app or through a web browser, but it does not record continuously, the cameras mount you this section here is magnetic and they come with these magnetic balls that you screw onto the wall here and the camera mounts tight, because there are super-strong magnets, so you can point it.
Once this is mounted on wall, you can point the camera anywhere you want and it’ll stay and that’s how the camera is mounted to the wall and then when it’s time to change the batteries, you pull the camera off, pop the batteries in and click the camera on the mount and you are good to go, takes 10 seconds to change batteries, you will be changing batteries every two or three months depending on whether using rechargeables or non rechargeables.
Let me show you what the app looks like, when you fire it up, let me try and get the glare out of there, these are four cameras of mine and I can click any one and pull up a live image at any time, it takes a second, because of the air, it’s live and I can go full screen if I need to, that’s my front door area, it takes a second or two for the cameras to come up, because they’re not recording.
They have to fire up to the Wi-Fi and start sending the signal, but these are all your cameras and this is the library where your clips are recorded anytime, detected motion, the clips are saved to the library here, it stores one week of Clips, unlimited clips for one week for up to five cameras.
If you want more than five cameras, or if you want to store for more than one week, you will have to pay to increase your storage, but if you are OK with one week of storage and up to five cameras, there is no charge for life to use the nadir or low cloud system.
These are different clips from different cameras that detected motion, he has a black and white camera and this is actually me, leaving for work in the morning and it’s nighttime, so the camera is in black and white mode, because it detected motion, it recorded a clip and saved it to the cloud and I can come back and watch it and you can set a schedule and an alarm, you can get emailed if it detects motion and you can set it to only detect motion between certain time periods.
You can do all of that on the app, so it can act like a security camera system, if you want to alert, it detects motion, I don’t do any of that, when it detects motion and I randomly checked my cameras, it’s great to check if I have a package or something like that.
If I get a notification, a package was delivered, I can see if the packages are for my friend or if you left them by my garage, because they’re completely wireless, I can click play on this camera and it’ll take a second and then it should fire up and show us what the camera is looking at.
It is looking at the counter, you can see there’s about a one-second delay, but these cameras are all live and they’re completely wireless and you place them wherever you need around your house and set the motion detection and they will record 30-second clips and save them to the cloud.
You access them through either the app or a web browser, I’ll show you the web browser in a second, I am logged into the aula into the hollow, a web page and all the cameras. I can click any camera. I want to see a live image click, I can click play and pull up the live image from that camera.
This is live and I can go full screen and it’s nighttime, so it’s in black and white mode, but the camera is high-definition 720, I can see whatever I need, let me exit out of that and go back and press pause.
Here are the cameras live and I can click here on the library to see all the recorded motion that I’ve had today and we can see how its 6:11 at 6:21, it recorded something, you would have recorded what you know, something triggered the motion, so I don’t see any motion, but something triggered the motion, so it recorded and that happens every now and then.
You get a false triggering and it records motion, but it doesn’t matter, so here is the video, it recorded the other thing to remember that you want to be careful not to place these directly facing onto a street, because your motion detection will constantly go off as cars drive by.
The problem is the battery life which is dependent on how many times it records and uploads a clip to the cloud, so if your camera is pointing at the street and it’s doing 40 or 50 motion detection Zaid, those batteries will last two or three weeks and their batteries will be done, so you want to position the camera carefully so that it focuses on your piece of land where it won’t get too many false positives, so that the batteries last a reasonable amount of time here.
We can see my girlfriend coming home from work and it’s set off, the motion detection are recorded, so I can pause that and close out of that here are the settings for the cameras and you can click on any camera and check the battery life status and turn on night vision and invert the image and set the image for best image or optimized or best battery life.
You can add more cameras and buy a subscription if you need to add more storage. I’ve had no problems with the supplied storage. For me, a week’s worth of online storage is perfect for up to five cameras, that’s the perfect amount of storage.
As far as I’m concerned, I have no intention of buying any more storage, it keeps exactly one week worth of clip, so I can go back a week and hear all the clips a week ago, I would quickly show you how the camera is mounted outside my back door, it sits on the magnetic mount and you pointed wherever you need, you can take it down whenever you need to change the batteries, this is quite a great camera system and the quality of the image is good and the cut storage is good.
Besides, paying thirty dollars in batteries for each camera each year is probably the best flattest camera system you can get for the money.
