Having launched the Mi Men’s Sports Shoes 2 last week for a price of Rs 2,499, Xiaomi has now taken the wrappers off yet another product which is not a smartphone. This time, it’s the Mi Home Security Camera Basic which is an A-powered motion detection camera with infrared night vision and talkback. The Mi Home Security Camera Basic will be available on Mi.com for an asking price of Rs 1,999 starting from February 14 at 12 PM.
To start things with, the Mi Home Security Camera Basic comes with support for 1080p Full HD video recording at 20 fps. It packs a 130-degree ultra wide angle lens which it says will be able to cover all corners of the house with minimum blind spots.
The Mi security camera comes with a 10-metre range of Infrared night vision and is also equipped with advanced AI motion detection. With the help of that and Xiaomi’s computational algorithms, the camera will be able to detect and avoid false alarms. There’s an intelligent detection function which enables push notifications when the camera senses a movement.
Additionally, the Mi Home Security Camera Basic features a talkback functionality which Xiaomi says has improved in offering voice calling. This also benefits from the omnidirectional noise-cancelling microphone and hi-fi speakers which make way for smooth communications. The security camera can be tweaked to hibernate when it senses that Mi Bands and iPhones are closer to the camera, thus allowing more privacy to users who don’t want to be recorded.
The Mi Home Security Camera Basic offers support for dual-band WiFi and also relays added connectivity through the built-in Bluetooth chip and support for microSD card for storage. The camera features a BSI sensor and WDR dynamic wide range and users can also use the picture-in-picture mode to check up on another room, possibly an infant’s room.
Xiaomi has priced the Mi Home Security Camera Basic at Rs 2,299 but is offering a 13 percent discount on the device. The security camera is thus available for an asking price of Rs 1,999 on Mi.com starting from February 14 at 12 PM.
