Table Of Contents
A prominent player in the smart home camera industry, Aqara has come up with its latest product. The Camera E1 is a sleek and modern camera that brings together a collection of features that include 2K resolution, support for HomeKit Secure Video pan and tilt capabilities, and much more.
At a price of $59.99, the camera is coming up as a competitive option for all those who want a balance between affordability and functionality in a home security solution.
The Camera E1 is bound to impress with its stylish and compact design making it very adaptable to different placements all around the house. It is very flexible whether it is mounted on a wall or placed on a shelf. This helps capture any view with ease ensuring comprehensive coverage.
The most standout feature of the Camera E1 is its privacy mode. It can physically reorient the camera lens away from the viewing area. This practicality of design offers peace of mind by visually hiding the camera’s recording maneuvers while the privacy mode is on.
The installation process of the Camera E1 is very easy. If you scan the HomeKit setup code on the camera using the iOS device’s camera the smart home system will quickly integrate it.
However, it is important to keep in mind that the camera set-up with the HomeKit could limit access to some of the features in comparison to using it with the Aqara Home App. However, important features like live streaming, two-way audio, and motion-triggered notifications can still be accessed through the Home app. With the 2K video resolution and f/2.0 wide angle lens, this camera delivers distinctly clear and detailed images leaving behind other HomeKit-compatible cameras that only offer 1080p resolution. The camera too is equipped with infrared night vision that ensures clear footage even in low-light conditions.
