The Eye4 C1 is a great and affordable wireless IP camera that has a lot to offer. I decided to review it today and see if it’s really worth buying. I will also mention and talk about similar IP cameras and compare them to Eye4 C1.
The video quality of the camera is pretty good – it records in 720P and the videos look sharp and nice, even when it’s dark (it has 9 IR LEDS). You do have to understand that it’s a fairly simple IP camera, and while it’s video quality is good – it’s can not be compared to IP cameras like Amcrest IP2M-841 (Amazon link). If you are looking for a basic IP camera – the Eye4 C1 is perfect for you. If you need better video quality, and need more features – then IP cameras like Amcrest IP2M-841 will fit your needs better.
Eye4 C1 supports motion detection, a very important feature. All you have to do is install the mobile app, and when the camera detects any motion – you will receive a notification. Works really well. In my opinion, this is a must-have feature, and unfortunately not all “cheap” IP cameras have it (and even when they does – it’s not always work really well).
Another thing I liked about this camera is it’s 64GB TF memory card support. Most cheap wireless cameras out there only support MicroSD memory cards of up 32GB. Boards that support 64GB memory cards are more expensive, so many companies don’t bother to use them. The 64GB memory card support is a big advantage in my opinion. Memory cards nowadays are really cheap by the way, so finding a good 64GB TF memory card for a reasonable price won’t be a problem,
I like the design of the Eye4 C1 camera. It’s not really big so you can pretty much place/hide it anywhere.
There are many free smartphone IP camera apps that support the Eye4 C1 wireless camera. One of them is Eye4. You can install it on your Android/iOS smartphone, as well as on your PC directly. It’s really easy to use and I really like the user interface. You can use other apps of course (like WardenCam which also supports motion detection notifications), but I really recommend starting with this one. It has so many options and features.
The setup process of the VStartCam Eye4 C1 is fairly simple and should not take more than few minutes. All you have to do is connect the IP camera to the power and your Internet network. If you still can’t figure it out, check out this video, it’s really helpful :
