The Reolink C1 Pro is a small indoor Pan/Tilt wireless IP camera using 2T2R MIMO antennas supporting 2.4GHz and 5GHz. This camera uses a 4MP (2560×1440) image resolution instead of the standard 1080p which results in much clearer and sharper image quality.
It comes with Two-Way Audio with a Built-in microphone and speaker so you can have a conversation via your phone to anyone who’s close enough to the camera. Great way to tell your pet to get down from the table or just warning any intruders to get the hell out! You can also use it as a baby monitor.
The C1 Pro has 8 Infrared LEDs and we were quite impressed with the night vision performance of this camera. 355° Pan and 105° Tilt is a great feature if you have bigger areas to monitor and it makes it much easier to find a good spot for placement of the camera.
