Banggood staff - "it is 15fps in 1080P and it is nonsupport Onvif".

Should get video like an old episode of Crimewatch from the 1980's

Also, according to manual, only supports 2.4GHz wifi (no 5GHz).

And seems to be tied to amazon cloud subscription, probably why it's cheap.

+ 538 units sold and 0 reviews.

Anyway, I'm sure the banggood shills will have made this hot before 11pm...
No reviews sadly

Cheap and nasty

this one is almost the same i think & this one has good reviews. i ordered mine a couple of days ago..just waiting for it to arrive. also you can use a memory card for the footage so that you won't have to pay for online storage.

It has just been released, hence there are no reviews. Give it a couple of weeks...

How many will you be buying?
Can anyone recommend a good cam that records continuously to an sd card. I've got a clever dog but find the picture quality a bit average.
Bought some siricams from banggood and cant for the life of me work out how to set them up so they are useless and there's barely a thing on the web with any advice. I will end up buying some Arlo or Nest ones for 10 times the price but I know they will just work.

I have been using a pair of Sricam SP007 for nearly a year, cracking cameras delivering everything the box says (viewable live or recorded videos on my android phone by wifi anywhere in the world, continuously cycling in micro sd card onboard, etc.). I think they cost me around £27 a piece from ebay uk sellers.

Anyhow for the princely sum of £15.22 (20% of £19.02 currently) I have taken a punt on this. The spiel says it will come from the Netherlands so should have no tax/PO problem. Pan and tilt and tf card compatible and 1080p for £15? Worth a punt I would have thought, but just in case I bought it with paypal, with the paypal buyer protection and free return in mind if not happy.

Cheers!
DDoS Ahoy!

l just got SRICAM and they are very basic to setup. The manual is helpful but no overly so, it's clear enough to help you set up the cam.

do you find them a bit sensitive on the movement detection?
at least the SRICAM is 25 fps

at least the SRICAM is 25 fps


Even some of the Xiaomi 1080p pan/tilt cameras are listed as 15fps. Good enough for in the house, it's not a GoPro.

I did some looking around on and found this:

Scene under surveillance
A scene involving fast-moving objects will benefit significantly from a higher frame-rate; with, furthermore, an inverse relationship between the fps parameter and the size of the moving object. A scene involving a slow-moving object (say, a pedestrian) will look fine even at 5 fps, while a scene involving a car travelling at a reasonable speed will look jerky at 5 fps. There are certain industry guidelines for deciding on frame-rates for specific settings:

Casino tables – 30 fpsCash counting settings (bank tellers) – 12 to 15 fpsVehicular traffic (not at traffic stops and parking lots) – 15 fpsPedestrian traffic – 5 fpsParking lots, traffic cameras, overview scenes – 1 to 3 fpsLow-activity settings – 1 fps
I have received my Guudgo SC03 1080p. Compared to my prior experience with sricam, it has a few (to me) serious problems.

For pros, the 1080p image is good, pan and tilt work, and videos (in 10 minute segments) do store ok in the sd card you provide yourself. 32GB will give you roughly 6 days.

BUT
1) the android app works as if it is broken. If you try to go back and view prior recordings, it always hang, and often lose wifi connection. I have a rock solid, fast, bt fibre wifi in direct line of sight 10m to the router btw. I also tried ethernet.
2) there is no facility to switch off upload to the Cloud I can see. You are limited to using their Cloud service, at $6 a month, which is behind a web address neither Chrome nor Firefox thinks is legit/secure. Some app functionalities (clipping stored videos e.g.) only work with their Cloud storage. In fact I am unsure if the web access will be of any use if and when your Cloud trial expires.
3) Because the app is practically useless for viewing recordings, one has little choice but to resort to pulling and reading the sd card. Unfortunately, videos recorded on the sd card is in ".v264" format. Yes, I searched high and low for a viewer, found only one (ancient) but no compatible dll can be found to make it work on my Windows 10 pc. It appears to be the ONLY viewer in circulation that can view such an obsolete format that nobody use anymore. The only way for me to view the 10 minute recorded segments, is by converting each first to avi, which of course is a complete pain.
4) More minor issues (to me) include: a) audio does not work on mine, b) no uk adaptor supplied with eu usb power plug.
5) My conclusion is one would be better off paying a bit more for something better, life is not long enough to tolerate/suffer the primarily software issues associated with the camera.

Cheers!

I haven't set mine up yet - how did you try ethernet and it has no ethernet port?

It has, unless you are talking about a different camera. See instructions at the bottom of page 4 of the manual.

Thanks - I think mine must be different version - it is not "snowman"
For info.
I've been able to get mine to work with other apps. (using the ONVIF firmware)
See here
I had to set the camera up with the Android GUUDGO app.
The iOS version wouldn't connect. Once I'd set things up with Android the iOS app worked.
I've been able to connect to it with VLC and get VLC to save the stream in a usable format.

I found a player for the files on the MicroSD card here
It works on my Windows 10 machine.

Now waiting to see if it still works when the amazon trial expires.
Picture quality seems okay but so much of a faff I couldn't recommend it.
@pjlhot Do let us know how you get on after the trial period.
Received an email from no-reply@closeli.com saying
"Your eyeplus Recording Service plan of Camera has stopped"
I could still use the apps and ONVIF Device Manager (on my PC) to control the camera.

I then did a hard-reset (keep the button pressed until it says "reset success")
Re-configured using the Android Goodgo app. (iphone app doesn't work for me)
Once configured the Android and iPhone apps work.
The Windows app ONVIF Device Manager was now a problem.
Its PTZ control worked but no video.

Tried VLC using rtsp://192.168.1.xx:554
That only worked with
user=admin
pwd=blank
Not sure why or how the but the password had now gone!
In ONVIF Device Mgr I deleted and re-added the app but without password.
That seemed to get it working - but it's a bit temperamental.

In summary to use this camera you need a cloud account login - to allow
the app to run. But it doesn't need to be in credit.
Once it's configured it seems to remember the wifi network when powered off.
Not sure what would happen if something else grabbed its IP address.
