Imou – Essential Features At Affordable Costs

Imou comes with essential IP Camera features at an affordable price point, while the feature may vary due to product model, but it is good to keep in mind that you can get these features at a lower price point.

  • Advanced H.265 Codec Compression
  • Multiple Storage Option (NVR, SD Card & Cloud)
  • Imou Cloud
  • Two-way Talk
  • Alarm Notifications
  • Dual Antenna for MIMO
  • Weather Proof
  • Night Vision
  • Active Deterrence
  • HD Resolution (720P & 1080P)

What we like best about these features are not only they are nice-to-haves, but they are practical.

H.265 codec helps to save up to 50% storage compression while maintaining the same video quality.

Another feature that is worth mentioning is PIR Smart Motion Sensing – some IP Camera would send you notifications as long as they detect movement which is bad (almost like spamming). This feature helps to reduce false alarms and only notify you when it detects human intrusion.

The best part? Imou Cloud.

For the time being it offers a 30-days free trial of free cloud recording which would save you a lot of hassle of changing SD Card or setting up NVR.

Use The Right SD Card For IP Camera

SanDisk High Endurance SD Card

When you are choosing SD Card, make sure to pick the right SD Card, one good example is this SanDisk High Endurance SD Card. Most people face SD card issue as they went ahead with the standard SD card which was designed for a lesser read / write environment.

Your IP camera is constantly recording 24/7 under extreme conditions such as heat, cold, shock (vibration) and weather conditions, you will need a high endurance SD card to work in this condition.

To make it less technical, high endurance SD card will last much longer than your regular SD card.

For the time being, all Imou IP Cameras come with free 64GB SanDisk High Endurance SD Card, this promotion is valid until 31/12/2019, while stock last.
