When buying a security camera, it’s not always easy to find one that’s actually ideal for handling most real-life situations. But that’s where the Amcrest ProHD camera comes in. Weatherproof and vandal resistant, this camera is a proven performer and the ideal addition for any home or business security system.
Its durable design can resist rain, heavy winds, hail, and even sudden impacts. This is the camera you won’t be afraid to install outside of your business. Too many cameras offer things like incredible resolution and amazing night vision capabilities only to fall short after being beaned with a rock. This isn’t the case with the Amcrest ProHD. But the Amcrest ProHD doesn’t just look sturdy- it’s a heck of a good camera too. Capable of recording at 20fps, we found that license plate numbers, faces, and other details were easy to identify and spot, which is really everything you need out of a security camera. Image quality is excellent. Every snapshot and video was crystal clear. The 98ft night vision, while just slightly above average in the industry, is appreciated and we found that the 81-degree viewing angle held up well.
Set-up, which we’ll talk more about in a moment, is surprisingly simple. For the quality, the Amcrest ProHD is extraordinarily easy to use. You can remotely view video feed from almost any mobile device and computer you can think of and the Amcrest apps and software seem as though they were designed for the techphobic, making this one of the most user-friendly cameras we’ve come across. All in all, it’s really hard to find anything at fault with this camera. Our only complaint? No power pan or tilting capabilities. Still, it’s a small complaint, especially when you take its excellent motion detection capabilities into account.
Set-Up and Installation
Set-up is pretty simple for the most part. You will need to purchase the needed Power over Ethernet switch and injector separately, however. But setting up the camera itself, once you have these, is very easy to do. You can actually set up the camera and enable settings using a smartphone. The camera is durable and can be installed outside or indoors. For best results, attach to a ceiling.
The Amcrest ProHD comes highly recommended, due to both its high video quality and extraordinarily durable design. Ideal for outdoor installation, its strong frame rate and crystal clear picture quality ensure that you’ll be able to spot and identify threats before it’s too late. And a user-friendly installation process makes this a great camera for both experienced security camera users and complete beginners. No matter whether you’re a business owner or a homeowner, you’ll be able to rest easy at night with the Amcrest ProHD.
