Samsung SmartCam HD Pro

 

Samsung continues to improve its SmartCam line in just about every way—but not quite enough to overtake the design and features of the competition.

Excellent full motion video. Local storage on microSD card. Simple Wi-Fi Direct setup with free Android or iOS app. Ethernet setup option for desktops. 2.4 and 5GHz Wi-Fi supported. Excellent night vision.

Lacks the home automation options of the competition. As big as a hockey puck. No online "DVR" recording. Desktop Web viewing requires extra browser plug-in.

Conclusions The SmartCam HD Pro is an improvement all around from the previous iteration. Adding storage and better optics is a huge step forward, and the setup was about as instantaneous as it gets, all at a great price. But ultimately, it's just a...

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro review

 

Samsung's $189 SmartCam HD Pro was designed to compete directly with the $199 Dropcam Pro . As far as IP cameras go, both offer straightforward setup, an impressive array of app-related features, and 1080p resolution, but the Dropcam Pro still feels...

Tons of app-accessible features make Samsung's $189 SmartCam HD Pro an extremely hands-on, customizable IP camera. It has less lag time than the $199 Dropcam Pro and offers SD card storage.

The camera's components feel cheap. The video quality isn't as crisp as its Dropcam Pro competition even though both are 1080p.

The Samsung SmartCam HD Pro is a very good IP camera, but Dropcam Pro still has it beat in terms of durability, app design, and overall video quality.

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro review: Not so pro

 

Frustrations with the mobile and web apps overshadow everything we like about this Dropcam competitor.

SD slot for storing footage, which means no cloud storage fees ; Excellent viewing angle

Connection problems were a constant concern

Samsung’s SmartCam HD Pro is another in the company’s long line of me-too products, but this one doesn’t improve on much of anything.

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro Review

 

A decent camera but lack of scheduling and non-subscription cloud services robs it of some functionality

Great video quality, good real time viewing performance, free ‘motion zones’

No cloud services without a subscription, poorly designed app, no scheduling available

The Samsung SmartCam HD Pro is good all around camera. However, its poorly designed app and lack of any cloud services without a subscription would make it a poor choice for many users.

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro Review

 

Ultimately the camera does what it promises and the initial setup is simple, but you will need some patience to complete advanced setup options on a Mac.

Review: Samsung SmartCam HD Pro

 

Internet camera looks good on paper, runs into problems in everyday use

Day/Night footage ; Easy setup ; Smartphone app

Network issues ; No off-camera storage ; Video quality out of network

Keeping an eye on the home while out and about these days is common practice. Internet cameras have become popular due to the ease of scanning for intruders or checking on the welfare of a child. Selecting the right model can be challenging, based on

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro Review: A Dropcam Competitor That Works Well, But Lacks Charm

 

It was inevitable that major OEMs would try to beat startup Dropcam at their own game, by providing inexpensive, HD IP camera for home security enthusiasts, people with babies and folks who just in general like to watch. Samsung has a few entrants in...

SD card storage with no recurring fees ; Relatively inexpensive

No cloud-based recording option (if the camera is stolen, so is your video)

Samsung has delivered a capable piece of kit with the SmartCam HD which works well once you get past the slightly onerous setup process. The problem is, it’s not really that much cheaper than its competition from dedicated IP camera maker Dropcam ($10...

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro SNH-P6410BN Review

 

Because of the disc shape, the SmartCam HD Pro has a large CMOS sensor that maximizes light running through the lens, helping capture vivid colors and sharp detail. Overall, the camera covers 128 degrees of vision. The motion- and audio-detection...

The SmartCam HD Pro has many great features and is backed by the Samsung name. Although it was one of the more expensive security cameras we looked at, it takes you one step closer to a full home surveillance system by utilizing Wi-Fi technology and...

Samsung Smartcam HD Pro review

 

An HD security camera with something of an identity crisis

The quality of the images provided by the Smartcam HD Pro make it a cut above a standard security camera. This is more of a hybrid device, somewhere between a security camera and webcam. Colours are well-defined and images are crisp, even at a...
