Hey! is a new smart technology company created to bring a simple, all in one solution to the smart home industry. Their aim is to bring you the perfect smart home solution for your home. I take a look at one of their initial products, so take a look at our Hey! Smart Floodlight Camera review.
Hey! Smart Floodlight Camera Review
At just £120, Hey! Smart Floodlight Camera offers customers a full HD camera and an astonishing two-way audio communication and motion detection. A huge benefit of this camera is the presence of two different storage options. You can either store your audio files and footage on an SD card or use the optional cloud storage facility. (Cloud storage starts from only £3.49 per month)
The camera is also, fully adjustable and compatible. The range of the motion detection feature can be adjusted to your preferences and a useful ”dimming” feature is also present. That being said, users can customize the amount of brightness they wish to come along the floodlight of the camera, and light power can reach up to 12.5W on each floodlight. This model comes with two separate built-in floodlights.
Another great feature of the Hey! smart camera is the fact that it requires no batteries at all in order to perform. Unlike similar models on the market, this model is hardwired and thus, you can connect it with ease to your home’s electrics. You will never have to worry about flat batteries, even when you are away for long.
The additional two-way communication system is also, great since it allows homeowners to come in immediate touch with anyone trespassing their property. That’s quite a deterrent for any wanna-be burglar and thankfully that’s not all this camera has to offer! It features a 120 dB siren alarm, as well! And with the Hey! App you can easily install on your smartphone, you gain access to all records, both audio material, and video recordings. The Hey! smart home app is available for iPhone and Android users and is free to download, and is designed to allow you to manage all Hey! devices from a single interface. The devices are also compatible with the TUYA smart home IoT system.
The Hey! Smart Floodlight Camera is easy to install and user-friendly. It feels very sturdy and it is made of quality materials. For its price, it is definitely a great choice and all of its features seem to be working fine. The pictures taken are bright, the recorded sound is clear and the motion detection features works from a satisfactory distance and catches not only large figures, like possible intruders but smaller animals, as well. The company claims that for optimal operation, it is best to provide the camera with at least 80% signal strength to the WiFi.
Are there any drawbacks?
This model comes with a metal backplate for mounting and therefore if exposed to bad weather conditions, some type of damage may occur. To avoid such things, owners could get an all-weather cover plate to protect the camera from rain, snow, or extreme heat.
We started hey! because we wanted to bring a simple way for everyone to get a smart home.
Overall, Hey! Smart Floodlight Camera is a great choice if you are looking for an affordable, yet trustworthy and sturdy exterior camera. It is user-friendly, it comes with a variety of advantages and it is both compatible and customizable. The quality of its video and sound recordings is really good and the camera works well at night, as well. It is a great tool if you wish to keep your home safe all day and night long.
