The Ultimate CCTV Camera


Nowadays home CCTV cameras have become very accessible and cheap. With the launch of the Mi CCTV cameras, the Home Security CCTV Camera market has seen a huge boost. Today let's see which are the best CCTV Cameras available in the market.

Mi Cameras required WiFi Connection to record no matter if its a Wifi Router or a Mobile Hotspot. It will stop recording when you turn off the Wifi. So make sure if you are getting any of the Mi CCTV Cameras then you have a Wifi connection or a phone that can be 24x7 on Hotspot otherwise these cameras are useless.

2) Mi 360° 1080p Full HD WiFi Smart Security Camera

3) Srihome SH025 Pan/Tilt Wireless WiFi 2MP Full HD 1080p

- Resolution : 1080p (Full HD) and 720p (HD)

- Can be rotated in 360 degrees using the Shri Home App

Although this camera is cheaper than the Mi 360° Camera and it advertises more features than the Mi's offering, the only reason to get this instead of the Mi 360° is that it can work even without Wifi. If you have a Wifi router then it can connect to it but if you don't have a Wifi router then this CCTV Camera can create its own Hotspot to which you can connect your phone or your Laptop to view the stream although without internet you won't be able to watch it from anywhere other than your home.


It is strongly recommended that if you do have a Wifi connection then go for the Mi's offerings because the overall experience is just better. The Mi Home App works perfectly everytime, while the Shri Home App is decent but it does not work 100% of the time and in Home Security Devices you want to have the best reliability that the Mi Cameras offer. Both the offerings from Mi and Shri have motion detection but in the Shri Home System, the rate at which false alarm happens is very high. At night even if there are mosquito flying still it will push out notifications continuously which makes it useless under such conditions. Also in Mi's offerings the motion detection sections is completely separate so that you can only see those moments when there was motion, the Shri Home system does not offer this important feature.


All in if you want a reliable CCTV Camera and the best experience go with Mi CCTV Cameras and avoid getting the Shri Home one.
