Our Verdict

Y-cam Evo is a powerful security tool packed in a tiny box, that integrates seamlessly into their range to bring even more security functionality to your home or business. The small box contains the camera, stand / wall mount, power supply and cables required. It takes as little as 5 minutes to set up and packs the same punch as some much larger bulkier systems. Video is recorded as and when to the cloud when the camera is triggered, this means no large recorder boxes and lengthy cables are required when compared to traditional systems.

It is App controlled meaning your access to your security camera can be with you wherever you go, shared with multiple devices and gives you access through clever control screens. A buffer in the camera means that moments before the trigger point are not missed too, how clever is that. With upto 8m night vision the Y-cam Evo should be able to see in the dark even in your largest rooms. A 3m cable means that you can mount the camera in most places around the house and if required you can purchase a longer one from Y-cam. You can add multiple cameras, add to existing Y-cam alarm systems and it all works through the same App. The range of products Y-cam produce means that you can expand as required to keep all areas of your house as secure as possible.

Some possible uses for this device could be as an accessories to a baby monitor, pet monitor, watching for a postman while having a bath or watch TV while being able to see the stew is not boiling over etc. It doesn't have to be in a fixed location which makes it flexible in it uses.

One thing I would check for people living in more rural areas would be their internet speed as a 1mb per camera connection is required. The cameras only upload when triggered so hopefully it should not take all the bandwidth from your router allowing your other devices to function as normal. It may seem to have a medium price tag, but the quality and functionality along with 7 days cloud storage thrown in make it a very attractive deal.
