I am thrilled to share with you all that we have finally received our brand new Samsung-Wisenet Smart Indoor Security Camera, the SNA-R1100W. In addition, for those who want to utilize this camera for outdoor use, we also have the SNA-R1120W which is included with 2 outdoor cameras, the SNW-R0130BW, on top of the standard camera that comes along with the SNA-R1100W. I’ll be going over a few things in this month’s article such as design, features, and my overall opinion on the cameras.
So, first things first, let’s get to the design.
Finally, a model that looks nothing like any of our other products. The design of the SNA-R1100W is incredible in terms of innovation. With its ability to be portable, due to the accessibility of the camera being detached from the station hub, it allows the user to have the various options of placing the camera anywhere for up to three hours. When the battery runs out, you can simply just attach the camera back on to the station hub so it can start charging again. The size of the actual camera is comparable to a soda can, but maybe an inch shorter in height. In terms of weight, it only weighs 0.8 pound so it’s easy to peg at an intruder, just in case you don’t have anything else to throw. But, in all seriousness, two words to describe the design of this model would be—Silky Smooth.
In regards to the SNA-R1120W, the design of the two outdoor cameras are just as good as the standard camera that comes with both the SNA-R1120W and the SNA-R1100W. It is small and light, which can be perfect to mount outside of your home or store, and one thing that really stood out to me was that the color of the cameras were grey and black. This allows the cameras to be inconspicuous, which everybody wants in their security cameras, and also, it stood out to me due to most of our outdoor security cameras being white.
The SNA-R1100W has many impressive features that can be boasted. With its 1080p Full HD monitoring, it delivers a crystal clear picture to your smartphone, PC, Mac, or tablet. In addition, with its 1/3.o- inch SMOS sensor included, it allows a maximum lighting through the camera to create a vibrant, colorful video recording experience. The SNA-R1100W is included with a built-in two-way talk, a 130-degree ultra-wide angle lens, and a 24 ft. night vision in total darkness. However, the most impressive feature, in my opinion, would be the Auto Tracking that the SNA-R1100W can provide. With a 350 degree panning, the user has a much broader view of everything, which can be very beneficial to keep an eye on your kids or pets. Lastly, the SNA-R011W gives you the option of recording video using local storage. With a 128GB MicroSD Card included, there are two ways you can record with this Smart Camera. The SNA-R1100W gives you the option of continuous recording, or event recording. Continuous recording lets you record, well, continuously. It will record without any interruptions so that the user can check back to see what has been recorded while absent. Subsequently, the event recording allows the user to record with less storage building up in the MicroSD Card. To explain, the SNA-R1100W will only record when the camera detects motion or sound.
The features that the SNW-R0130BW provides are very similar to the SNA-R1100W. Both indoor and outdoor cameras offer a 24ft. night vision, as well as an event notification that goes directly to your phone if the cameras detect any motion. However, one of the differences between the outdoor and indoor camera is that the outdoor cameras run on 3v lithium battery. Although, it may not sound too convenient to buy 3v lithium batteries, the batteries can last up to 6 months with the outdoor cameras. This is due to the outdoor cameras going into sleep mode by default until it detect motions. In addition, with all outdoor cameras, people need to have the assurance that the cameras will withstand all weather. To no surprise, these cameras will. With an IP65 weather-resistant rating, these outdoor cameras are capable of withstanding all weather conditions such as rain, wind, snow, or outstanding heat.
Overall, I can say that both SNA-R1120W and SNA-R1100W delivers as great Smart Security Cameras. However, the only problem that I encountered with these cameras were when trying to connect the cameras to my phone. Although, the step were easy to follow, the actual connection took a while to get going. Other than that, I very much appreciated what the cameras had to offer. With a new design and new features, it is safe to say that it was an entertaining camera test. I hope you guys have enjoyed the review, and as always, please feel free to ask any questions regarding the camera.
