Digital ZoomDigital zoom allows you to select part of the video and enlarge it. While this helps you get a closer look at something, the quality of a digitally enlarged video won't match that of the original. The Samsung SmartCam HD Pro has the highest digital zoom in the review at 10x. Smart Home PlatformBefore you buy, check if any home automation or DIY home security systems work with the camera. These systems can use Wi Fi security cameras to control smart locks, thermostats and other devices in your smart home. Likewise, these devices can tell the camera to record or not, based on your personal preferences.

We looked at providers offering pure DIY as well as those offering professional monitoring, either de facto or as an upgrade. We required all systems to have Z Wave Support — the most universal mesh network for communicating appliance to appliance. One of the biggest draws of a DIY system is the opportunity to add in third party equipment like Philips Hue lights or a Nest Thermostat at any point. Z Wave is available in over 2,400 home security and automation devices from more than 700 companies. Plus, you have flexibility in where you place various devices because Z Wave can communicate farther distances than other protocols — like Wi Fi, for example — since it functions by sharing an Internet connection between devices as opposed to a localized router. Ultimately, we wanted systems that could integrate seamlessly into our homes and improve our quality of life.

An apparent capacitive button with a glowing bell icon is included in the metal frame just below that and the frame extends around the entire doorbell. Viewed from the top, the back half of the doorbell is flat to sit flush with a wall or door frame. The front side is flat along the top and bottom edge but has curves similar to the company's Galaxy S series flagships at the left and right hand edge. No indication is given with regard to scale but, based on the size of the camera sensors in relation to the overall size of the doorbell, it wouldn't likely be much larger than a few inches wide. Background: Samsung has had at least some experience in the category of camera enabled doorbells and similar technologies thanks in part to former subsidiary Hanwha Techwin and its SmartCam lineup. However, it has been quite some time since any new products were launched under the Samsung branding. Finalization of the sale of Samsung Techwin to Hanwha Group was completed in 2015, with the newly merged company rebranding as Hanwha Techwin. The Korean tech giant's efforts in the space since that split have been almost entirely non existent. Hanwha Techwin has gone on to continue making cameras and still utilizes Samsung's SmartCam and WiseNet branding as well as online services for the storage and subscription services side of the business. That means that signing up for or checking in on a subscription still relies on Samsung SmartCam site. That includes intelligent face recognition and subsequent alert features which aren't at all unlikely to find their way into Samsung's own cameras if it does decide to release some based on the patented design.
