Reviewed in Canada on September 28, 2020
I already owned two of the previous model Zumimall security cameras, but purchased this one as an upgrade. The camera itself is larger, but looks a lot more like a professional security cam, which is great to deter anyone from coming onto our property.
Really pleased with the motion detection, similar to our previous cameras (same brand). It picks up anything within range (5-10m depending on setting) and gives a nice clip of that activity you can easily review from your phone. You can also choose to switch to live view, which allows you to monitor current activity. If someone is at your door, you can even use the speaker to communicate with them... have scared a few delivery people with that before!!!
The nice part about it not running 24/7 (filming) is that it conserves battery and lasts 3-4 months typically on a charge (from previous camera experience). This battery is larger, but it's also a larger camera, so I'm not sure if we'll get more or the same length as the others.
We do not subscribe to the cloud service, so I cannot comment on that part, but I use an SD card and it saves everything perfectly. Can go back and review each day's recordings or wipe them out down the road if you wan to clear up space. All done from their app -- works like a charm.
Our winters are not bad, but the previous cameras survived West coast winters, wind storms, heavy rain, sun, etc. easily. Never once an issue.
Mounting the camera was easy too. Screw the anchor into the wall, then you can screw/unscrew the camera itself from that for charging. I guess the ONLY downfall here is that a really ambitious criminal could take the camera off the wall and you'd lose your recordings. However, my cameras are set pretty high, so they'd need ladders to do so! If you subscribe to the cloud service, you'd have recordings of that stored in the cloud, though.
All in all very pleased so far with this new version. It looks far superior and will keep this review updated with any changes throughout lifespan. Highly recommend any of these Zumimall cameras, they seem to be one of the best bets for a rechargeable camera that records to an SD card... so you don't HAVE to buy cloud service, etc.
