PROS

  • The Sengled Snap is an outdoor security camera built into a floodlight.
  • You can create "zones" in the camera's field of vision for special attention.

  • There's no way to store footage locally.
  • You can't control the sensitivity of the motion detection.
Sengled, the maker of the speaker bulb, introduces Snap, the outdoor camera floodlight. Snap combines a wireless 1080 HD camera with a large LED light to keep track of what’s happening outside your home. The bulb is best placed above a garage or doorway. It monitors both day and night thanks to its night vision capability. You connect to the device via Wi-Fi and view footage on your smartphone. Footage is stored on the cloud, which requires a subscription service. Snap notifies you when motion is detected, and it includes a speaker and microphone for two-way communication.

Snap only offers cloud video storage (no local). It has both 7-day and 30-day storage plans. But here’s the catch, you can’t really use Snap’s motion sensor unless you subscribe to one of these plans. Sengled’s reasoning is that the algorithm used to make the motion sensor work is so complex that it had to stay in their servers.
