Lights, Camera, Action!

Need peace of mind? Well, check out this new smart home security device.

The EZVIZ LC1C Floodlight includes a human detection system, intelligently recognising people who may be trespassing and revealing them with a powerful beam. The 270° sensor also ensures intruders from all angles can’t avoid detection; even if attempting to do so through sneaking alongside a wall or below the floodlight itself. Thanks to a starlight standard sensor, night time images are clear, allowing you to see everything up to 25 meters (82 ft.) away.


The LC1C can be rotated to face any direction, and has been designed to connect to an existing outdoor light or be installed as a new unit. The lights will activate upon motion detection and you can adjust the areas. The LC1C also has a built in 100DB alarm which will be activated if there’s any unexpected movement.


Compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, the product is designed to link with your home’s existing smart home devices; including EZVIZ smart alarms. The onboard Wi-Fi module leverages a power amplifier to improve its signal strength and anti-interference capability, too.


You can also monitor your home whenever and wherever using the accompanying app that lets you view, listen and speak to visitors from a smartphone, PC or MAC thanks to its two-way talk function. Integrated with infrared technology, the device also filters out background noise for enhanced voice quality. What’s more, you can manually turn the lights on and off, as well as change the brightness of the lights via the app.


The internal waterproof microphone supports audio pickup within five meters and video recording with sound via the app. In addition, the push notification option alerts you to any disturbances or suspicious behaviour so you’re fully informed at all times.


You can also set schedules, create detection areas as well as review and share live footage or play back previous filming. The floodlight holds a MicroSD card of up to 256GB for local storage of footage, or you can sign up to a cloud storage system.


The outdoor camera has a two-year warranty and an IP65 enclosure rating, meaning that it’s resistant to rain, snow and other harsh weather conditions.

The EZVIZ LC1C floodlight camera is available now from Argos in Black and White for £179.99.
