If you’ve been following our Comparison Shopping for Wifi Cameras series, you’ve read about the three outdoor Airsight camera models and two classic indoor Airsight models. So far, there are several things these fabulous WiFi cameras from X10 have had in common with one another, many of which are included in the newest X10 WiFi camera models.
Comparison with Classic Airsight Cameras
Like previous generations of X10 cameras, the newer models all feature simple setup via apps, requiring no technical expertise or professional setup. Because they get plugged into standard outlets and operate through your home’s existing router, you can easily set them up yourself.
Like both classic indoor cameras (the XX69A and the XX51A), these up-and-coming models allow for 2-way audio communications. Like the XX69A Airsight Indoor Wireless Camera, all three of the new models include SD card backup capabilities. They also include a free 8GB microSD card!
Future-Friendly Indoor Camera Models
The remaining three indoor Airsight WiFi camera models have a few aspects that set them apart from their well-loved counterparts.
The first new model is the LI2 Wireless HD IP Stick Camera. Unlike all three outdoor cameras or the previously mentioned two indoor cameras, this one is white. (All others mentioned so far have been black.) The sleek exterior of the LI2 includes a swivel joint and magnetic base, as well as a screw-in mountable base for permanent placement, making it the only indoor-only Airsight camera that can be easily wall-mounted. The LI2 also includes 14 IR night vision nodes and sensitive motion sensors for daytime and nighttime use. The 1280*720p high definition lens captures impressively high-quality video that can be recorded on either your phone or via the 8GB microSD card that’s included with the LI2.
The LQ2 Wireless HD IP Ball Camera comes in both White or Black and includes many features similar to the LI2. Distinctions include only magnetic mounting included and only 10 IR nodes. An added feature is a tilt-and-swivel base. The small, spherical design and color options make this camera ideal for hiding in any nook or cranny.
Both the LI2 and the LQ2 utilize voice-directed setup and linking via a unique audible tone instead of a QR code, making setup even simpler than previous camera models. Both also include excellent night vision capabilities: up to 25 feet in complete darkness. The improved motion-sensor technology also provides additional security potential.
While previous Airsight cameras have allowed home security to come within the reach of many home owners, these new additions to the X10 Airsight family also allow your home security system to include child-monitoring and intercommunication features previously beyond reach. Because unlike individual baby monitors, these cameras actually utilize your WiFi signal instead of competing with it; they provide an even better avenue for keeping your eye on your children even when you can’t be in the same room.
