Samsung SmartCam HD Pro


Samsung continues to improve its SmartCam line in just about every way (except maybe size)—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

Samsung's newest SmartCam not only has a simpler name than the last version (HD Pro vs. "WiFi Home Security Camera"), it's vastly improved. It's easier to install, you get on-board storage (you supply the microSDXC card), there's better Wi-Fi support,...

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro review: This Dropcam Pro competitor feels a bit unfinished

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.

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


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...
