The Funlux mini is a fairly new IP camera. It’s very popular because of its low price and features. Today I will review this camera and see if it’s really worth buying. I wil lalso mention some similar IP cameras and compare them to Funlux Mini.
The Funlux Mini IP camera records in 720P (not Full HD -1080P), and the video quality is excellent – crisp and sharp. The lens are wide angle (115 degree) – which is very nice and useful. You can easily connect this camera to your Internet and activate functions like motion detection. When a movement is detected – you will recieve a notifiaction. Very useful of course. I must say that I’m really suprised by the video quality of this camera. It’s not expensive, and still works amazingly well. In the past, you really could not buy a good IP camera for the price Funlux Mini sells now for. In the last few years the industry really changed thanks to small Chinese companies and brands that started offering their products on global e-commerce websites.
I highly recommend checking out the Amcrest IP2M-841 (Amazon link) IP camera as well. It records in Full HD. The video quality is much better than what you get with the Funlux mini IP camera. But of course- the price is different. If you need a really basic (yet great) IP camera – go with Funlux. But if you need a more advanced IP camera with better video quality and features – consider buying Amcrest’s IP camera. It’s very popular now actually.
The Funlux camera is very small, you can easily mount or place it anywhere. The design is pretty simple – the camera does not draw too much attention – so that’s a great thing.
There are many apps that you can install on your smartphone and will allow you to control your Funlux IP camera from anywhere. Funlux recommends using MeShare (Android and iOS versions are available. Links in the end of this review). I think the MeShare app is really nice. It’s super easy to use and offers so many features and options. If you don’t need all these options, maybe you should try using a more simple app. There are many of them, most are offered for free. You can also view the live stream on your computer of course. There are many free programs that do that.
Years ago, you would spend hours installing an IP camera because they were really complex. Nowadays, IP cameras are so much easier to setup. You can setup the Funlux camera in few minutes, it’s really easy. All you have to do is connect it to your Internet, and pair it with your smartphone device. Really easy. You can find many tutorials on YouTube that show exactly how to do this.
