Aukey 360-degree Wireless Indoor HD Camera

Thursday, March 30, 2017

For round-the-clock indoor surveillance, an IP camera makes a lot of sense for monitoring almost anything while you're not around.
You can really get a lot of use out of an Internet protocol (IP) camera so it's handy to have one laying around.
This IP camera by Aukey ticks most things you could ever want from an indoor security camera and that includes 2-way audio, 360 degree rotating head, motion detection, Full HD resolution, pan, tilt and zoom to focus, as well as mobile app control.
With Aukey's 360-degree Wireless Indoor HD Camera, you can connect via your home's wireless network or via Ethernet cable.
Inside the box you get the following:

Wall mount & charging USB cable
Wall USB charger
Ethernet cable & wall mount hardware (including reset tool)
The bottom of Aukey's wireless camera has a quarter-inch thread to attach it to the included mount. Model shown is the Aukey VT-CM1, which is powered by 5V 2A.
When powering on the IP camera, remember to use the included USB charger as it delivers 2 Amps which the IP camera needs to properly function.
