As a set-it-and-forget-it indoor/outdoor security device, the small, wireless Mini Trooper security camera from Ezviz is a serious contender.
Ezviz is the brand responsible for the highly effective and affordable Mini 360 Plus full-room camera, and the new Mini Trooper only picks up where the company left off.
The Mini Trooper comes fully weather sealed and with range-topping battery performance. The best-in-its-class battery offers a nine-month battery life before it needs to be recharged. Otherwise, it is like many other smart home security cameras. One additional positive to the Mini Trooper is that it can be integrated with other cameras in the Ezviz line.
The Mini Trooper comes with a 116-degree wide angle lens, night vision with a 25-foot range, and end-to-end encryption. Ezviz promises a future update will enable Amazon Alexa support, giving users the ability to control the camera using voice commands through a product like the Amazon Echo.
Due to its small size, the Mini Trooper can go virtually anywhere. Up to six of the devices can be paired together to the beetle-shaped base station, allowing homeowners to cover multiple angles around their home, covering all possibilities. Users can also easily monitor the video feed using the Ezviz app.
The Mini Trooper comes in a starter kit that costs $150 and includes the device, the base station, and an 8GB memory card. Additional Mini Trooper cameras are available for $110.
