Sengled SNAP LED + IP Security Camera Review
Peter Donnell / 6 months ago
We’ve been playing around with a lot of IoT and smart home devices, but one of the ones we’ve been most eager to test is the Sengled Snap, as it combines so many features in one single product, and can really add a huge amount of flexibility to your smart home setup. More than just a humble lightbulb, the Snap combines security hardware that makes it perfect for monitoring your home in ways you’ve likely never considered and we’re eager to see how it performs.
“Sengled Snap combines an IP camera with an energy-efficient LED lamp and instantly gives you the full overview, day and night. Can be used as both an outdoor security camera and as a baby videophone. You can either watch the wide angled HD camera’s video in the app or retrieve the recorded scenes from the cloud. Receive alerts whenever motion is detected around your house. How does it work? Simply screw the device into a standard E27 lamp base and connect via WIFI. No drilling, no cable installation.”
Equipped with hardware and software to allow you to stream live video, trigger motion alerts, listen and speak via the built-in microphone and speaker system, and so much more, the Snap is absolutely packed with features. Even better, if comes in a simple E27 screw fitting, meaning you simply have to install it like any other light bulb, making it very consumer friendly.
