In today’s article, I want to tell you about the new pet-friendly home security alarm kit from Winees Company. The kit consists of an IP camera, motion sensor, siren hub, and two-door window sensors.
As you understand, one of the main features of this system is pet-friendly. It means that the system does not react to animals in the house.
The price of Winees home security system is $77 on the official website with free shipping.
OK, I propose you to look at the package, design of each device, installation, and usage of this security system. Let’s get started!
Winees security system comes in this box. On the front, we can see where to install door window sensors, motion sensor, siren hub, and camera.
On the back, there is a quick tutorial on how to use the system. First, you need to install a security kit, then download the app on the smartphone, create an account, and add a new device. Later I will show you how to connect a security kit to a mobile app.
Inside the box, you will see the following: camera, two-door window sensors, motion sensor, and siren hub.
There is also a user manual and two other boxes. The first box has screws and other stuff to install the devices on the wall, a power adapter, and a cable for the camera. In the second box, there is another power adapter and cable.
By the way, there is one more package under the siren hub with screws and adhesive tape.back to menu ↑
Talking about the design, all devices are made in a minimalistic style of white color. To be honest, they remind me of the devices from Xiaomi smart home.
The window door sensors are very simple. They have a battery compartment on the back and LED indicator on the side face. There is also information with model number and battery on the right side.
The siren hub has three LED indicators on the top, such as power and Ethernet connection.
The power button is on the right side.
By turning the siren hub counterclockwise, you can find a micro USB port. It doesn’t have a built-in battery, so you need to plug the power cable.
The motion sensor is wireless. It has a battery on the back. The power and LED indicator are on the left side.
Finally, the camera. As you can see, it has an external antenna for a better wireless connection. On the back, there is a large speaker.
On the top, you will find the memory card slot and reset button.
On the front, there is a camera lens, microphone, light sensor, and infra-red LED.
So, I think that’s all about design. I like that all devices are made of glossy plastic, and they look very stylish.
Now, let’s open the official website and look at the main features of Winees security system.back to menu ↑
So, the first feature of Winees home security kit is protection from all aspects. Door check, window check, motion sensor, and camera standby.
The next feature of this system is the Pet immune motion sensor. If you often leave your pet at home alone, the motion sensor will not react to it.
When a human is detected, you will get a notification on the smartphone, and the siren hub will be activated.
The siren hub is very loud – 110dB.
The security system supports voice control, such as Alexa and Google Assistant.
You can also read the specifications of the motion sensor, camera, and siren hub on the official website. For example, the motion sensor has 80 degrees viewing angle and 10 meters maximum range.
The camera has Full HD 1080p resolution, 100 degrees viewing angle, night vision, and auto-tracking function. The camera also has 340 degrees pan range and 90 degrees tilt range.back to menu ↑
To get notifications from Winees home security system and watch live video from the camera, you need to install an application on the smartphone.
The app is called Linkind. It is available on Google Play Store and AppStore.
First, you need to create an account.
After that, click on the Plus icon in the top right corner, and choose Security Easy-access Kit.
Now, you have to turn on all devices from the security systems, such as a hub, door window sensors, motion sensor, and camera.
Then, just scan the QR code on the siren hub, and connect to your Wi-Fi network. That’s all!
Actually, you need to add all devices from the security kit the same way.back to menu ↑
Now, let’s install all the devices, and we will see how they work.
First, let’s test a door window sensor. When the door or window is opened, you get a message on the smartphone.
The motion sensor works the same way. When it detects human, you receive a notification on the mobile device. After that, you can open the camera, and watch the video what is happening at your home.
In the app, you can also create the scenes.
Insecurity menu, you can choose the mode of security system: disarm, stay, and away. In the settings, you can see and change the exit delay, entry delay, alarm volume, LED mode, alarm duration, etc.
By the way, the motion sensor, door window sensor, and siren hub don’t have any interesting functions or settings in the app. However, the camera does.
In the app, you can see live video from the camera, take a photo, record a video, or rotate the camera, as well as say something.
The basic settings menu has motion settings, switch to standby, link device, speaker volume, no SD card detected, screen rotation, firmware update, and more settings.
In the more settings, you can change the camera name, turn on/off status LED, choose a room, time zone, and restore factory settings.
By the way, one of the most interesting functions of the camera is auto-tracking. When the camera detects a human, it automatically tracks a person’s movement.
Now let’s have a look at some videos from the camera.back to menu ↑
You know, I really like Winnes home security kit. Unfortunately, I don’t have a pet right now, so I cannot say do motion sensors really not react to animals.
Anyway, the motion sensor detects human very well. Also, the door windows sensors work properly.
The camera has good video quality, two-way communication, night vision, and even auto-tracking function. That’s very good.
I think that Winees is a really good home security alarm kit. In addition, it has a very good price – only $77.
