You’ll be able to relax a little more while away from home with this quick and easy option to keep an eye on your house and belongings. It’s also great for those times when you want to keep an eye on your kids when they’re home alone, or watch your pets while at work.

This camera is super easy to setup and use, from unboxing to live feed it took me a total of about 15 minutes. I was really impressed with how after installing the Samsung SmartCam app on my phone I was led through very simple screen-by-screen setup instructions that told me exactly what to do with the camera to enable setup. I had worried a bit about setting it up on the network, but no worrying needed, as long as I was on WiFi on my phone, the app led me through each step. There are also quick setup instructions for a pc or mac if you’re not planning to use a smartphone or tablet.


Once I was all setup we picked a spot in our front living room that would help give us a view of the front part of the house and the front door. Now whenever we’re away we can open the app and check in on our home. The peace of mind this offers is really helpful for traveling families! We also have a wide angle of camera coverage because of the 128° wide angle lens.

Videos are sharp and clear thanks to the 1080p full HD video high quality option, you could also choose the low or medium quality options if you have slow internet. Plus it features great night vision to help adjust for when the lights are out. You can also have more than one camera and give them each different names like living room, bedroom.


The SmartCam also has some great options including two-way communication so we can even say hi to our kids while we’re out of the house. And you can also choose to save the video or capture photos from the camera onto your phone.

I was really impressed with how easy this was to setup, and think it’s a great option for families who want a simple camera to keep an eye on their home while they’re away. It’s not too late to grab you own Samsung SmartCam HD Pro for any upcoming trips!
