EZViz cameras shine in these circumstances:
- You want local video storage vs. cloud storage.
- You have an unreliable Wi-Fi connection and prefer to use an Ethernet cable.
- You don’t want to pay a monthly fee just to use the camera’s app.
EZViz cameras also have good picture quality in all light conditions thanks to infrared night vision and digital noise reduction (DNR). Most retail for under $100 and can be used without a monthly subscription plan.
You’ll need to subscribe to the CloudPlay standard plan ($3.99 a month) or premium plan ($5.99 a month) to get cloud storage, but that’s totally optional thanks to microSD card slot on each camera. You can also store data on an NVR or DVR.
All EZViz cameras work with 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi. A 2 Mbps uploading speed is recommended. You can choose to use an Ethernet cable with some models, like the C6CN or C8C, if your Wi-Fi signal is weak or spotty.
Other than that, you’ll need a wall outlet to plug in the power adapter, which is included with each camera. You may also need a screwdriver to mount the cameras to a wall. The mounting hardware is included in the box.
You’ll also need an Android or iOS device so you can download the EZViz app to your mobile device for remote control or to check the live view. We were happy to see that the app was highly rated in both the Apple App Store and Google Play store.
