This is an interesting Zmodo camera, which includes some great features that you rarely see available in home security cameras. It features the ability for the users to adjust the angle of the camera. This means that it one of the very few standalone home Wi-Fi cameras we have seen that can potentially view the entire room.

Intuitive App with account sharing option – it is easy to control the system via the free Android and Apple Apps. There is also the option to give access to the system to other family members.
No battery backup – some users felt uncomfortable because there was not battery backup available. This means that if there is a power outage the camera stops functioning completely.
Does not take video – this is not a video camera as such. It takes snapshots at the rate of 2 to 3 frames per second providing a very good idea of what is going on, but some users were disappointed with this.

Can be wall mounted – most users put this camera on a shelf or desk, but it comes with a bracket and screws to allow you to mount it on a wall.
Not compatible with 5 GHz network – These cameras will only work on a 2.4 GHz network. This is fine for most but if you want your camera on a different frequency than the rest of your wireless devices this will not be possible.
No motion triggered recording – unlike many other systems this camera does not have the option to only record when there is motion in the room. It records images all of the time. However, if there is motion in the room it will send you a message with those images, so the camera doe have a motion sensor included.
