Thursday, May 05, 2016

Having reviewed a stand-alone Wi-Fi security camera before, it is great being able to review a complete home alarm security camera system that connects together using WiFi!
With the MyFox home alarm security camera system you get a WiFi hub (can connect up to 50 sensors), UK/EU plug sockets, batteries (1xLR03, 4xLR20, 1xCR2032), 2 years warranty, 3 meter USB cable, USB power adaptor, user manuals, a 110 decibel siren, a key fob and a sensor to stick on doors or windows.

The sensor works slightly different to a contact sensor and can sense the different vibrations between someone knocking on a door, a door opening and someone trying to break in.

The security system comes with great perks such as battery backup, which means if you power or WiFi goes out, the camera will still be able to broadcast.

The 4K high definition camera comes with a 130 degree wide angle lens as well as motion and light sensors that allows the camera to see in the dark.

The home alarm system is connected and set up through the app, which is easy to set up. Simply plug the WiFi Hub directly into the power socket to connect wirelessly to your home's network.

Then, download the MyFox security app (compatible with Android or Apple devices) which will walk you through the set up process with your camera. Once installed, you will be able to remotely view the camera from the app at any time. as well as watch, speak, zoom (4x) and listen through the app (via the built-in speaker and microphone), which makes communication through the camera very convenient.

When the camera detects movement it will trigger the siren alarm and also alert you via email and via the app. MyFox IFTTT recipes are also a great way to further automate the system.
The Verdict
MyFox is a stylish and well-built home alarm and security camera system that blends inside your home thanks to its unique design. MyFox security camera comes with a night-vision HD camera with 130 degree Field of View (FOV), as well as cool extra perks such as a smart key fob that automatically disarms the alarm when you enter your house, and a motorized privacy shutter on the camera that you can open and close remotely from your smartphone.

The battery backup is another nifty feature that will keep constant watch even if the power at home or WiFi goes out. The timeline feature of the MyFox app is great as it allows you to see through up to 7 days of video recording and you can view live recording on 720p at 30 frames per second (FPS). There are no Ethernet cables required and the camera can be used as a stand alone WiFi camera. Check out Myfox Home Alarm Security System
