Solar outdoor camera is it worth?
« on: March 11, 2019, 02:34:09 AM »

I was looking for a battery-powered camera for back door that was impossible to use with a wired device. I found this solar outdoor camera from[https://soliom.net/] soliom[/https://soliom.net/]Setup is easy and I love the complete wire free feature. It can recharge itself through its solar panel. Powered this camera entirely on solar is such a huge benefit. Running entirely on solar, this camera will keep on recording even if your power is cut off. The cameras have a pretty good image quality. You can view the live camera feed via your phone while you are away from home. The cloud storage ONLY can save 20 files for free, So you need a extra sd card.

Soliom Solar Outdoor Camera

Package Includes:
1 x Soliom Bird camera
1 x Bracket
3 x Expansion Screws for bracket
2 x Additional Machine Screws
1 x Screwdriver
1 x Reset Pin
1 x Additional Silica gel cover
1 x USB Cable
1 x Day and Night Warning Sticker
1 x User Manual





Here are some of Pros and Cons.


Pros:
- True wirefree.
- Easy setup.
- Solar powered.
- No monthly subscription fee.
- Nice looking design.

Cons:
- No motion sensing zone setup. Anything moves anywhere in the field of view will set off recording and alert.
- There is a delay in the initial motion sensing until the camera starts recording.
- It only support 2.4GHz wifi.
- Not support Alexa.
- No web interface to access from a computer, monitor only from Android or Apple app.


All in all, I'm really happy with this truly wireless system. I expect a rainy day to test out the weatherproof function. It is said that Soliom S60 camera is IP66 Weatherproof. and I will update some photos or videos later.

Thanks for the info. I may be interested in a couple of these since we have to bug out of here on occasions for hurricanes. These things, being solar, will allow us to keep an eye on the place. One of the first things they cut off as the storms start, is the electricity. Didn't know these things existed. will give them a shot
