Samsung SmartCam HD Plus

 

The Samsung SmartCam HD Plus is a compact Wi-Fi surveillance camera that delivers sharp HD video regardless of lighting conditions, but it doesn't integrate with other home automation devices and can be tricky to set up.

Sharp 1080p video. Good night vision quality. Motion and sound detection with alerts.

Doesn't interact with other devices. Only sends email alerts to Google accounts. Convoluted setup process.

Conclusions The Samsung SmartCam HD Plus lets you monitor activity in your home using your smartphone and delivers sharp 1080p video both day and night. It records video when the motion and sound sensors are triggered and stores it on a local SD card,...

Samsung SmartCam HD Plus review: This Nest Cam clone is more than a knock-off

 

This security camera packs a wealth of customizable features in a familiar package.

Customizable alerts ; Definable detection areas ; Easy setup

Some app functions are not intuitive ; Lack of cloud storage option leaves security clips vulnerable ; No battery backup

A solid security camera with a wealth of customizable functions, if you can tolerate a sometimes clunky app experience.

Samsung Smartcam HD Plus review

 

Samsung is taking on Nest yet again with another Wi-Fi security camera. The Korean giant unveiled the new SmartCam HD Plus in November, available now in the US at Costco stores and online at Costco.com (the MSRP is $190, but it's currently available at...

Samsung's new SmartCam HD Plus has a more discreet design than the larger last-gen SmartCam HD Pro. A 16GB microSD card is included with your $190 purchase.

The HD Plus uses the same clunky app as its predecessor. Although Samsung promised improvements in motion detection and night vision, this next-gen cam isn't noticeably better than the HD Pro. It isn't compatible with SmartThings yet.

The SmartCam HD Plus is a fine live streaming HD camera, particularly if you want to go the local storage route, but it isn't markedly better than Samsung's previous 1080p security camera.

Although this new model is supposed to offer "improved night vision" as well as "advanced motion and audio detection" designed to keep false alarms at bay, I noticed no discernible difference between the HD Plus and the $190 Samsung SmartCam HD Pro I...

Samsung’s Smartcam HD Plus is like a Nest Cam that’s not shackled to the cloud

 

Review: $190 camera stores video locally and lets you communicate with your home.

Sharp 1080p video recording, with the option to lower resolution to conserve storage ; Two-way talk, recorded messages, and stock sounds are great audio features that let you easily communicate to your home when you're out ; Comes with 16GB microSD...

Wider base than the Nest Cam, with frustrating power source port under the camera head ; Out-of-date app experience; makes vital settings, like turning alerts on, difficult to find ; Smartcam plugin has issues installing on a Mac and via the Chrome...

Despite their uncanny resemblance, the Samsung SmartcamHD Plus and the Nest Cam have a lot of important differences between them. Yes, they share a similar design, and both shoot video at 1080p; however, the Smartcam HD Plus takes a lot of the Nest...
