Product overview

What features does this camera have?
The Smanos IP6 Wi-Fi camera offers a great, 720p recording that lets you see everything clearly. The IP6 uses a high calibre SONY IMX238 image sensor and 5MP lens to get detailed pictures. With brilliant colour during the day, the camera can also switch to 15 metre low-lux performance (as long as there is 0.01Lux) at night. With a microphone and speaker built into the camera, you can talk into your phone and have it come out of the camera.

How easy is it to record with the IP6 camera?
The IP6 camera has a microSD slot for recording your footage, and is compatible with a card (not included) up to 32GB. The camera automatically starts recording in 20 minute segments when it is turned on, but you can use the app to record additional footage or capture static images. Once the card is full the camera records over the oldest stored information first. With multi-user features, you just need the QR code to share your camera’s image on your app, and multiple people can view it at the same time.

What are the advantages to adding a camera to my alarm system?
When you pair a camera with your Smanos alarm, you’ll get a notification or phone call if the alarms are triggered. If you’re at work or on the move, you can quickly check your IP6 camera and see if it’s an intruder, a fire or a false alarm. This camera is for indoor use only and requires a Wi-Fi connection and mains socket for power.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay away This is a camera with poor functionality. No movement detection. Nightvision is pitch black. It can only manual record. No automatic recording available. I had to return it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor. Bought this a year or so ago and stopped using it. When I came back to try use it I had forgotten the camera password and there is no factory reset documented. The device also has pretty poor features. It can and should be able to write to a network drive (the chip it uses is more than capable of writing to a network drive as it appears to be running linux on arm, has ethernet protocol and wifi support on board) Image resolution is okay, the night vision is actually pretty good as well but the factory reset issue is just plain stupid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cam for my needs The cam records constan when a card is inserted. Factory reset=Hold the reset button on the cam until it does 2 quick beeps.Picture is great (Day or night) with very low lighting (no need for IR). Can look through double glazing, provided room light is out, without any problem at all. Only down side is the app needs a lot of work as it is very basic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, love it Installation was super easy and camera working great. The SD card records when I’m not at home and the app is very easy to use and works with my smanos alarm. Would definitively recommend!

It would depend on the alarm system you are using, most Smanos units allow for 30 sensors maximum. Additional contact sensors can be seen here;

Can you use this camera to check remotely on iPhone 6 if someone in your house or do you need the rest of the Samos system. What is the colour of the power lead ?

There is a standalone app for the camera, although it is also compatible with with the Smanos alarm apps if you do have an existing alarm. The power cable is white.
