Design and Features
This camera has a solid build. A rubberized base prevents it from falling off when you place on a platform. But it also includes wall mounting features at the base. Like its predecessor, it is quite easy to set up through the Wi-Fi interface.
With a good Wi-Fi router and a stable internet connection, you can sign up on the Aposonic website or download the SpotCam app and start using your camera without having to learn a lot of technical details. Tech support is also available via phone, email and online chat if you experience any hitches.
Overall, the image quality of the A-SpotCam Pro is quite impressive. It has a very wide angle lens that covers 110 degrees. This is sufficient to capture all the details in a particular room without the need to use digital zoom or remote panning and tilting.
Videos can be captured in both HD and SD mode. If you have issues with your internet connection or bandwidth, you may opt for SD instead of HD. For effective capture of images at night or in a dark room, the camera is equipped with infrared (IR) LEDs.
Built-in Microphone and Speaker
This camera offers two-way audio communication through its microphone and speakers. First, it can capture high quality audio along with the motion pictures. Then you can speak from the SpotCam app on your mobile device or from your laptop and it will be heard almost in real-time where the camera is installed.
With this feature, you can control your pet dog while you monitor it from a remote location. You may also use it to monitor the activity of your kids and send an instruction to them.
Motion Detection and Alerts
One of the unique features of this camera is its ability to provide selective motion detection and alerts. As a surveillance camera, it alerts you (through the Spotcam app or email) when there is a strange movement within its view. But sometimes this movement alarms can become overwhelming.
So, with this camera, Aposonic allows you to choose to ignore the movements of your dog (in the lower section of the picture) but you will be alerted when a human makes a move. In addition, you can receive audio alerts when there is a strange noise in your room.
Cloud Recording Service

You may also upgrade to higher service option that will allow you to record keep up to 3 days of video recording in your account.
