EZVIZ Mini Plus Wireless Surveillance Camera Review

Final Thoughts and Pricing
At the time of this review, you can get the EZVIZ Mini Plus for £79.99 on Amazon. I couldn’t find it listed in the US at this time. A low price for a quality camera. However, keep in mind that extra charges may apply if you chose to continue the CloudPlay feature after the initial trial.
This was my first EZVIZ camera, and it was a joy to test it this past couple of weeks. The camera is tiny and easy to hide, which is great for a surveillance camera.
It is mountable almost anywhere thanks to its magnetic base. It also comes with a metal plate included, allowing you to mount it where a magnet won’t do it. The design also allows the Mini Plus to be angled and tilted. You can mount it up-side-down thanks to the feed-flip function. That leaves little to be desired.
The Mini Plus can record locally to an EZVIZ NVR or a microSD card (up to 128GB). But there’s also remote video storage called CloudPlay. CloudPlay is a paid-for feature, but there’s a 30-day trial included.
We saw perfect video recordings without dropped frames or other unwanted fragmenting. The wide 135-degree viewing angle allows for full room coverage when it’s placed in or near a corner.
The connection is made through Dual-band Wi-Fi which is compatible with the latest 80MHz routers too. There’s even two-way audio built-in, allowing you to use it for more than protection. Get a notification and catch your cat on the table? Shout at it to get down. Or just talk to your baby while out on the road. There are many situations where two-way audio can be useful.
The mobile app is pretty good. It comes with a lot of features, and it shows that it’s an evolved piece of software. The Mini Plus is also compatible with Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant with IFTTT. A big bonus for the smart home of tomorrow.
