There are times in life when it pays to be picky, and choosing a security camera for your home is one of those times. After all, you’re tasking it with a serious undertaking—keeping an eye on your home and family around the clock.
For that reason, you’ll want to choose a camera that’s more than just “good enough” at what it does; you want something that goes above and beyond the call of duty.
The Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro is a standout in its class, with smart features that no other security camera has. Take a look at five reasons why even the pickiest homeowners will love the Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro.
1. Stream live and recorded HD video
A camera is only as good as its picture, which is why 4k HD resolution tops the list of reasons you’ll love the Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro. The 4k HDR sensor provides crisp images for both live streaming and recorded viewing.
What if you need a closer look? The camera also maintains an HD image as you start to zoom in, providing a clear view of all the critical info you need, such as license plate numbers or faces. Plus, you can do this all no matter where you are from the Vivint Smart Home app on your phone.
2. Discourage lurkers with alerts
One of the great things about surveillance cameras is the ability to discourage crime—even burglars themselves will admit that the presence of a camera is an effective deterrent. But there’s always the chance that the camera might be a dummy camera, which is a risk some are willing to take.
The Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro goes a step further from discouraging crime by identifying and then alerting lurkers who step foot on your property. It’s the only camera with Smart Sentry™, a powerful AI tool that recognizes the difference between lurkers and passersby, and then alerts them that they’ve been spotted. Here’s how it works:
- Smart Sentry™ keeps an eye on the “surveillance zones” you define, such as a driveway or backyard, then pays special attention to anyone who approaches those areas.
- If someone lingers for too long, the camera illuminates the LED light ring around the lens and plays a tone through the 85db speaker, letting the lurker know they’ve been spotted. The light and sound draw attention to the camera, giving you a clear view of their face.
- You’ll then receive a notification on your phone (if you choose) that alerts you to loiterers.
- Using the Outdoor Camera Pro’s two-way talk feature, you can tell the lurker that it’s time to move on.
Smart Sentry is a smart feature that makes the Outdoor Camera Pro stand out from the competition.
3. Integrate with your entire Vivint Smart Home system
As part of a complete Vivint security system, the Outdoor Camera Pro integrates seamlessly with the other smart devices in your smart home. For example, you can use the camera to automatically start recording whenever a window or door is opened.
The two-way talk feature allows you to speak to people outside from your app or your Vivint Smart Hub, so you can tell the kids it’s time to come inside for dinner.
4. Catch all the action, day or night
Imagine this: your child’s scooter goes missing and they swear they left it in the driveway. No problem—you have a security camera, so you’ll be able to figure out what happened to it. But when you go to view your camera’s footage, you see that your camera’s field of vision doesn’t quite catch the edge of your driveway, or whoever may have walked by and grabbed the scooter.
Your camera needs to be able to see all, and that requires a wide field of vision. The Outdoor Camera Pro boasts a wide 140° viewing angle, so you can see as much of your front or back yard as possible. It also features infrared LED night vision sensors, so you can see just as clearly at night as you can during the daytime.
Not only will you be able to see everything in real time, but the Outdoor Camera Pro doesn’t miss a thing when it comes to people on your property, either. The built-in motion detector starts recording when it senses someone on your property and keeps going as long as they’re detected, so you see the entire event.
5. Get a reliable connection with less buffering
There are a lot of benefits to a WiFi enabled camera—they don’t require extensive wiring and can be moved anywhere you need them. But one of the biggest downsides of many wireless cameras is the ability to maintain a connection, as many cameras lose a substantial amount of their signal just trying to get inside the home. And when your camera can’t stay connected, it can’t help you.
The Outdoor Camera Pro uses a Hybrid Wired Wi-Fi connection to make sure you have a smoother, faster video experience with less delay and buffering, making it more reliable and less likely to lose a signal.
Another perk of the Outdoor Camera Pro? Our Smart Home Pros will take care of the installation from start to finish, so there's no need to worry about digging out your toolbox or getting up on a ladder. And this way, you'll know that it's set up correctly, ready to protect you and your family.
How the Outdoor Camera Pro Fits Into Your Security System
As part of a complete Vivint Smart Home security system, the Vivint Outdoor Camera Pro joins a suite of other smart devices that provide improved protection and visibility, including:
Burglary detection. Door and window sensors sound the alarm if your home is broken into, while indoor motion sensors detect movement when you’re away. The alarm works to scare potential burglars away while alerting our 24/7 monitoring center that a breach has occurred.
Smart locks. It’s easy to forget to lock up, especially when you’re rushing around to leave on time or your kids are coming and going throughout the day. With Vivint smart locks, you’ll never have to worry about locking up—or getting locked out. Unlock your door remotely via the Vivint Smart Home app, or set custom rules to lock automatically.
Indoor cameras. The Vivint Ping Camera is an indoor camera that provides an extra layer of protection and peace of mind while keeping you connected to your family. You can check in on pets, kids, and other family members at any time, no matter where you are. The two-way talk feature also allows you to have a conversation, and the one-touch callout feature makes it easy for your kids or family to get in touch with you.
Doorbell camera. You can also keep an eye on your front porch and answer the door from anywhere with the Vivint Doorbell Camera. You’ll get notified that someone’s at the door whether they ring the bell or not, and the two-way talk feature lets you tell visitors to come in or come back another time.
