You can insert a micro SD card to record the footage locally and also send the video stream to a cloud server to keep the data safe (paid service).

My first impression of the Loocam camera

Yes, my first impression was good because I could set up the camera in a matter of minutes by just using a smartphone and following the instructions.

The video quality is great, and the night vision and audio work pretty well.

What is on the box

The Loocam camera comes in a beautiful box that brings the installation accessories and the quick guide. The picture below shows the content of the box.

Inside the box, there's the camera, a USB cable to power the camera (no power adapter available), anchors, screws, template, and mount for installation. There's also a camera's user guide and a needle to reset the camera.

The Loopcam camera details

The camera has an elegant design.

In the front part, there's a lens, an ambient light sensor, and a LED that indicates when the camera is ON, a microphone, and the infrared LEDs.

The back part

There's a thread in the back part of the camera to connect the device, so it's possible to install the camera on a wall. There's also a connection for the USB cable, a slot for the Micro SD card, power, and a reset button.

The camera features

Let's talk about the camera features.

Camera resolution

The Loocal camera captures images with 2MP (1080p) resolution, which is enough for most applications and allows you can zoom in to see the video's details.

The picture below shows an example of the camera quality.

The camera resolution is good; however, the dynamic range is not good enough to capture important details when there's light contrast.

As you can see in the picture, the light from the balcony blinds the camera; however, this issue is very common for cameras with this price tag.

Night Vision

This camera works well at nighttime.

It uses infrared LEDs to capture images with great detail.

The picture below shows what the camera captured outdoors during the night.

As you can see, the image is super clear at night time when the camera Infrared lights turn on. I can even see the balcony.

Weatherproof

The Loocam camera is weatherproof, so you can install it outdoor without a problem with rain. It's IP65 rated (it complies with the international standard).

Bi-directional (two-way) audio

The camera has a microphone and a speaker to allow bi-directional audio communication, so it's possible to hear the sounds around the camera and speak to someone close to it. The sound is loud and clear.

Push notification

The camera can send push notifications to the smartphone App.

The camera detects motion and triggers the notification.

SD Card Recording

It's possible to record the videos into micro SD cards.

I recommend you buy a class 10 micro SD card to avoid problems.

Cloud Recording

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 on your mobile phone to retrieve the videos.

Installation and setup

I set up the camera in less than 5minutes.

The setup process is super simple.

Once the camera is charged, I just downloaded the smartphone App and followed the instructions to read the QR code.

The picture below shows the process of pointing the smartphone to the camera.

Camera set up

After few steps, I got the camera up and running.

Alexa Integration

After the camera installation, Alexa automatically finds the device in the network; however, the camera didn't show up on my Echo Show and Fire TV.

When I ask Alexa to show the camera on my devices, it tries to display the camera, but instead, it only displays a message on the screen "Waiting for Meari," and then it gives up and says, "The camera is not responding."

The picture below shows the camera stuck in the Fire TV.

The manufacturer informed me that the camera is not compatible with Alexa at the time. Perhaps a new firmware in the future could bring this feature to life.
