Amazon obviously knows how popular each product category is on its site, and it has a tendency to get in on the action these days when something is very popular. Home security cameras are obviously quite popular right now, so it was only a matter of time before Amazon made a streaming camera of its own. Lo and behold, the Amazon Cloud Cam Indoor Security Camera has now been released. Like comparable home cameras, the Cloud Cam supports 1080p streaming, night vision, motion detection and more. But it’s also tightly integrated into the Amazon ecosystem, including support for Amazon Alexa. The Cloud Cam starts shipping immediately, so definitely check it out.
Here’s what you need to know from Amazon’s product page:
* 24/7 monitoring – Stay connected to your home, family, and pets. Catch activities as they happen in 1080p Full HD and watch the last 24 hours of clips for free.
* Notifications – Get notified when Cloud Cam sees activity and use the Cloud Cam App to check in anytime with live view.
* See clearly in the dark – Night vision lets you detect what’s happening around the clock.
* Two-way audio – Check in with the family or tell your dog to stop barking.
* 30-day free trial – Get advanced features like person detection, Zones, and more storage, plus download & share clips with a Cloud Cam subscription.
* Works with Alexa – Just ask Alexa to show your live feed on your Amazon Fire TV, Fire Tablet, Echo Show, or Echo Spot.
* Cloud Cam’s intelligence lives in the cloud so it is always getting smarter with more advanced alerts, detection, and features.
* Amazon Key compatible version – With the Cloud Cam (Key Edition) and a compatible smart lock, eligible Prime members can watch their in-home package delivery live or later.
The Cloud Cam certainly sounds like a good product, but if you ask us the WyzeCam is a much better value if you can wait for stock to be replenished.
