BOSMA X1 home security camera review, key features, and purchase links. The BOSMA X1 comes with a few purchase options, the basics with just the camera, and the other options with door and window triggers or smart door bell. This is the first home security camera with color night vision and I must say I am rather impressed.
BOSMA X1 Key Features
- [1080p video with 145° Super Wide Angle]: the X1 camera gives you amazing 145° Wide-Angle Views & 360 Degree Panning. Having one of the widest view angle among security cameras, X1 makes sure there is no blind spot in your home. Works with 2.4GHz Wi-Fi networks (does not work with 5GHz Wi-Fi) (Not battery operated, power cord provided)
- [Color Night Vision]: The X1 camera is equipped with advanced image sensor that captures video in vivid color even in low-light environment, so you always know what you are seeing. Regular black-and-white Infrared Nigh Vision also available.
- [Built-In 110dB siren]: With just one tap on the app, the X1 camera can blast a 110 decibel siren to scare any intruder away from your home, even if you’re not at home.
- [PIR, Motion, and Sound detection]: Advanced PIR motion detection captures only movements of pets and people, reducing false alarms caused by lights, shadows, etc. Regular motion and sound detection also available. Alert notifications are sent directly to your mobile device in real-time.
- [Full duplex two-way audio]: No more walkie-talkie-style 2-way talk, the X1 camera has a built-in speaker and microphone that allow you to talk and listen to your loved ones at home through your phone, just like a regular phone call.
I’ve had a few home security cameras at this point to try out and long story short, this one stands out from the many other cameras I have tried. The features that stand out to me is the color night vision, rotating head, and PIR detection. The quality of the images also looks nice.
From start to finish, the process began a little slow. There were some connection issues going on, but I am not able to determine if who’s fault it was between the device, app, wifi, or a mix of the bunch. There was also a firmware update right from the getgo. SO once the update happened and reopened the app to get started, things started looking better.
First impressions of the app, the UI is nice, functions are easy to find, and navigation of the app isn’t too hard to figure out. I’d say you’d not need to consult the manual for much, especially if you’re tech-savvy.
Overall, this is a simple camera to operate with Away, Home, and Private modes to quickly toggle on the type of surveillance you’d like to use. I also like how you can send a share link to an email address for more eyes to see the footage. This is great for families and businesses.
