I had a good first impression of this product, mainly because it is very easy to set up and use. The video quality is great, and now you will have the chance to check the pros and cons.
What is on the box
The A-zone camera comes with everything necessary for the installation.
The box brings the camera, the wireless antenna, a power supply, connectors, screws, templates and tools for installation, stickers, and documents such as the camera's user guide and product warranty.
The A-zone camera details
The camera has a beautiful design, and it's pretty elegant.
In the front part, there's a lens, an ambient light sensor, and a LED that indicates when the camera is ON. The camera design is minimalistic.
The back part
There's an antenna connector, a microphone, and an articulated bracket for installation in the camera's back.
You can use the tool that comes with the camera to tighten or untighten the screws.
The camera features
This camera some interesting features.
Let's take a look at them...
The A-zone camera captures images with 3MP resolution, which means you can zoom in to see the video's details without too much pixelation.
It has good quality, as you can see in the picture below.
The camera resolution is good enough to capture important details.
This A-zone camera works well at nighttime.

The camera detects motion and triggers the notification.
SD Card Recording

I recommend you buy a class 10 micro SD card to avoid problems.
You can have the camera recording on the micro SD card and also in the cloud.
The footage stays safe into the cloud just in case something happens to your camera, and that's very good for security purposes.
You can use the App in your mobile phone to retrieve the videos.
There's a table with the prices for cloud recording starting at $5.83 per month.
I could install and set up the camera in less than 10 minutes.
