If you ever have a couple of meters of power cable from an outdoor thread-safety camera to an indoor outlet, you will understand that the phrase “wire free” can vomiting dizziness. This is largely why the Eyecloud the 100-percent battery-sticker-eye was such a Kickstarter success. It is also the mount is free (It is on the surfaces of the magnetic. Sticker-Eye—get it?) the and subscription free of charge, in essence, the elimination of the greatest vulnerabilities in connection with the possession of a home security camera.

none of this would matter much if it had a watchdog monitoring capabilities of a half-blind, as soon as you have set it up. Happy, AI technology Eyecloud specialty, and sticker-Eye has some of the most accurate smart detection, which we have seen.

This review is part of TechHive reporting on the best home security cameras. There you can read reviews of the competing products.

Design

thanks to its magnetic base, the cylindrical camera plug anywhere you have a metal surface. If it is not provided on a magnetic holder, the stick can easily be fitted to wood or masonry, with a couple of screws, and the camera. (Theft-proof mounting bracket is sold separately for $10.) Indoors, the camera stand freely on a flat surface, or it can be installed on a wall or ceiling with the help of the magnetic mount, or a sticker, if you don’t want to drill all the holes.

The label-eye is with built-in 6000mAh battery to run for up to two months on a charge. If it needs to be charged, just pull the camera down and plug it into a power outlet. Curious, Eyecloud supplied a USB-A to USB-C charging cord for this, but not an AC adapter. I had a scare of a different device.

The sticker-eye camear has a 130-degree viewing angle with a tilting head.

The camera has a 130-degree field of view and takes 1080p video. The camera head can be manually tilted to the optimum viewing angle. Label-eye is always working in standby mode and Wake up only when it detects movement. At this point, its built-in AI analyzes the moving object and, if it identifies you as a person, the camera starts recording video and will continue until the movement stops. A single video clip lasts from 5 to 30 seconds; if the motion event is longer than 30 seconds, the camera starts a new recording.

This type of AI analysis is usually performed in the cloud, to enable the camera owners to pony up for a subscription. Sticker eye can analyze objects self, which, thanks to an integrated Intel chip, so that all the video-clips, the on Board storage. The camera comes in 8GB and 32GB models, the save in location to thousands of surveillance footage.

Setup and performance

With Eyecloud the complex steps of the installation, the majority of the stickers have been eliminated-Eye setup and connect the app and the Wi-Fi. The app will prompt you through the process of logging in to your network, and the pairing of the camera, so that the majority of your efforts for finding a place for the sticker-Eye.

The sticker-Eye-the app keeps things smart and simple.

as soon As you want to be the camera, according to your wishes, you have to configure your settings for alerts. You can do this by tapping on the gear icon under the sticker-Eye miniature on the devices screen. The Smart Alert options are motion detection, person detection and face detection.

Person-detection ignores the movement of the trees, vehicles, and animals, so it promises to be the less false alarms when monitoring for the General movement. You can also select a detection sensitivity of a sticker-eye has a slightly hotter setting for indoor monitoring, outdoor, and decide to have the camera’s built-in siren goes off when an event is detected.

When the camera detects a human in a green box for easy identification in the Alarm and video clip. You can see these warnings even more useful, by enabling face detection, and upload photos of up to 20 familiar faces in the app I have my whole family, and they were identified with 100% accuracy. You can choose to get called notifications, when these faces are detected, for example, if you want to be notified when your children come home from school. Otherwise, you can block to reduce the notifications of these people, the number of alerts that you receive.

The video-Sticker-eye captured in my Tests was sharp and bright, with accurate colors. There was no fisheye distortion or washed-out areas of lamps and sunlight. The camera automatically switches to night vision mode when it gets dark and provides a lot of lighting and contrast to see clearly into an otherwise unlit area.

label the eye a rating of IP54 for outdoor use, this is significantly less than the IP65 classification for the majority of the outdoor cameras. It means its protected from limited dust and water spray from any direction. I would hesitate to let this camera outside in a severe thunderstorm. This is worth considering if you are in the area that experiences very wet seasons of the year.

label-Eye-app

sticker-Eye’s companion app is as no-nonsense as the camera itself. The live-stream-area bar is set against a white background with aa` icon in the camera controls at the bottom. View the feed in full-screen mode, hide the toolbar, until you touch the screen.

A library of video clips accessed from the device’s screen can be. Each video is time stamped and labeled with its detection method (person, face, movement). All the videos are stored on the camera, but you can load them all to your phone during playback. By default, the library displays all of your videos, but you have a filter to only those that are recorded automatically by events, the recorded manually or downloaded to your device.

judgment

It is rare that all of the security camera provides a friction-free experience, let alone a company the first product. With sticker eyes, Eyecloud is managed, the consumer, give you what you want—a cheap camera, which is easy to install and operate, with the AI functions, you actually do what they are supposed to. I could quibble about the lack of configurable motion zones or Alexa, and Google-assistant-support, but this can and probably will be fixed in future iterations. How is it, sticker-Eye is worthy of an unusually good camera consideration by anyone desiring a simple, reliable home security solution.
