    If you are thinking about getting a brand-new home security camera system, or even upgrading from your old one, keep in mind that not all home security systems offer you the exact same deal. Some pack more features than others, some just have better camera quality and camera features but lack on security functionalities, and some might be so bad that they can be easily exploited.

It records in H.264 video encoding and its 1080P resolution is equivalent to Blu-ray quality.

    But it doesn’t stop there. The IMILAB EC2 also features high-quality night vision, meaning it’s equipped with high-performance self-driven infrared light which will turn on automatically in low light. This will offer you effective night vision up to 100 m (330 feet), allowing you to see clearly in the darkest of nights.

    The IMILAB EC2 comes equipped with a built-in 5100 mAh lithium rechargeable battery and does not need to be plugged in to power, or even constantly recharged. The battery stores enough power to support the security camera to operate continuously (24/7) for 120 days (4 months) on a single charge, so you only need to recharge it 3 times per year.

    The IMILAB EC2 comes with built-in Cloud DVR and remote viewing, allowing you to see what’s happening in your home & business via your smartphone or tablet while you are away.

    PIR Sensor & AI technology

    The IMILAB EC2 also comes equipped with a PIR motion sensor that’ll automatically receive the infrared wave emitted by the human body. The sensor will then start the security scanning with AI technology. This helps the system to distinguish between people and animals.

    Combining AI technology with the PIR sensor reduces false triggers, making the system fully capable of differentiating among humans, large pets or other large warm moving objects. If any animals are detected, the PIR sensor will not send alarm notifications to your smartphone, nor it will record anything in the cloud storage system, which consequently helps the devices to consume less energy.

    Affordable, Accessible, Always Yours

    The IMILAB EC2 Wireless Camera Set is a cost saving home security system. Not only it is wireless, which saves you both time and money during its installation, but the best part is that there aren’t any associated monthly fees. That’s right, you buy it, you own it, and it even comes with a free Cloud Storage that is yours forever.

    Keep in mind that while the IMILAB EC2 Wireless Camera Set only comes with one wireless security camera, the IMILAB GateWay supports up to 4 security cameras, meaning the system is expandable.

    This gives you the ability to make an investment decision at any time in the future and further expand your security system, instead of having the need to buy an entirely new one.
