In this article, we will talk about a very interesting IP camera called Heimvision HMD2.
This camera has several important advantages over its competitors. First, this is a wireless camera with a built-in battery. The battery life is about 4 months on a single charge. Moreover, you can use a solar panel with this camera.
Also, Heimvision HMD2 has Full HD video, two-way audio, night vision, and motion sensor.
The price of the camera is $80.
Of course, before buying, let’s do an unboxing, look at the design, application, and video quality.
So, here is the box of the Heimvision HMD2 IP camera. As usual, there is the image of the camera on the front, specifications on the back, and main features on the side face.
We will talk about specifications and features a little later.
Inside the box, there is the camera itself, USB power cable, two adhesive pads, a waterproof rubber stopper, reset pin, user manual, magnetic mount, metal stand, and screws.
The package contents is very good. I especially like this magnetic mount. The magnet is strong, so the camera shouldn’t fall off the wall.back to menu ↑
You know, I respect when manufacturers pay attention not only to specifications of their devices but also to design. Heimvision HMD2 is a very beautiful IP camera.
It has a compact size and rounded shape. The dimensions are only 95 x 55 x 55 mm. The weight is 220 grams.
On the front, we can see the camera lens and PIR motion sensor. On the back, there is a speaker, company logo, and magnet mount.
Under this silicone cover, you will find the power button, power connector, reset hole, and microSD card slot.
The camera also has a thread for metal stand on the bottom.
Heimvision HMD2 is an outdoor camera, so it is waterproof by the IP65 standard. It is not afraid of rain, snow, and sunshine.
OK, now, let’s go to the official website and look at the main features of this IP camera.back to menu ↑
As you can see, the main feature of the Heimvision HMD2 camera is long standby time. The camera is equipped with a 6000mAh battery, and this is enough for 4 months of battery life.
Also, the camera supports solar panels. However, you need to buy it additionally for $35.
The next feature of the Heimvision security camera is the 1080P Full HD video. Later, we will check the video quality.
As I already said, the camera is IP65 waterproof.
Also, it has two-way audio, 130 degrees viewing angle, PIR motion detection, and night vision.
Using the HeimLife app, you can get instant alerts on your phone, watch live video, and video playback.
Now, I want to show you how to connect the camera to the smartphone.back to menu ↑
1. As I already said, the app is called HeimLife. It is available on Android and iOS devices.
2. After installing and opening the application, you need to click on the Plus icon in the right top corner.
3. Then, choose a battery camera.
4. Press the power button on the back of the camera, and tap next in the app.
5. Now, you need to connect to your Wi-Fi network.
6. The next step is to show the QR code to the camera.
6. Wait for a little until the camera will be connected.
By the way, I have already tested the video doorbell from the Heimvision Company, and it has the same application.
In the app, you can see live video from the camera, take a screenshot, intercom, record a video, and turn on/off motion detection.
There are also History and Cloud tabs.
In the settings, you can use the basic functions, such as turn on/off status light, rotate the view, turn on/off night vision, change speaker volume, and see the remaining battery level.
I have to say that alert notifications come very quickly and accurately.back to menu ↑
So, the main feature o the Heimvision HMD2 camera is the built-in battery. This is a full wireless camera. The battery life is about 4 months. Also, you can use a solar panel with this camera.
The other functions of Heimvision HMD2 are about the same other IP cameras, such as Full HD video, motion detection, night vision, etc.
So, if you need a wireless outdoor security camera, then this one can be a good option.
