AN ALL ROUNDER CAMERA
When it comes to questioning the level of security provided by the Mi security camera, it passes the test with flying colours due to its multi-purpose features. The camera can detect human shape and in the absence of the owner can identify if any human has entered the premises of the home, store, factory, office and anywhere else it is installed. Xiaomi has built a corresponding application “Xiaomi Ants Smart Camera” which can be installed in the phone for direct communication with the camera. It can record voice messages as well as broadcast them if the user needs to send an alert to the intruder. The Mi security camera can also function as a baby monitor as it detects baby crying sounds. Live footage can be seen on the paired phone and saved in the micro Sd card which can be inserted in the camera.
The Yi Home Application needs to be installed in order to activate the camera.
