Here’s more about this great deal.

Motion detection and plenty of memory

This HeimVision Smart Home HD Security Camera detects motion and can record whenever it senses activity. You can operate it by app—and watch activity right on your phone. The camera records video and audio on a microSD card but the footage is also saved to the cloud (with storage of up to 72 hours), so you never have to worry about losing it. The HeimVision HD Cam even has night vision.

“This Wi-Fi camera is great,” says one of thousands of five-star reviewers. “The picture quality is excellent... the night vision is good too! I like the way... I can operate it in my phone. I can click it, and it moves around I can see the whole room. It’s easy to set up—just follow the user’s manual.”

“We bought this camera to spy on our cat,” says another delighted five-star reviewer. “....I like the movement tracking (follows the subject).” With three days’ worth of cloud storage, you can go through your footage and save what you want. “You can ‘like’ [certain] events in the cloud and they are saved to your cloud album, then you can download videos from the cloud album and make an iMovie.”

Wide angle, clear image, great zoom feature

This HeimVision camera has eyes in the back of its proverbial head too. It uses a 110-degree wide-angle lens. It can rotate 355 degrees horizontally and 65 degrees vertically. And it can zoom in on an image, magnifying it four times while still maintaining impressive clarity. You’ll easily be able to keep tabs on an entire room, and then some.

“This camera has far exceeded any expectations,” says another satisfied Amazon shopper. “The picture quality during daytime is excellent. We use it in my daughter’s room to check on her at night, and also to check on her [pet] bearded dragon when we are not home. Pan and tilt are such helpful features, while the wide angle lens also lets me view the majority of the room without moving the camera.”

One more reviewer chimes in: “To say we were blown away would be an understatement. The quality of the image is fantastic.”

Take advantage of this unexpected sale—and invest in peace of mind for 2021. At 40 percent off, this HeimVision Smart Home HD Security Camera is likely to fly off shelves. So grab one—or several—today.
