With the camera's design, you can mount it on a wall with just a single screw. You will be able to use it only for indoors.

Ecobee Camera Review - Pros

The Ecobee smartcamera setup is quick and easy. We think that the entire setting process, i.e., from unboxing to pairing will be completed within 10 minutes.

You don't need any separate tools to attach the metal stand. And, it is required to plug in the camera to an outlet.

Pair the SmartCamera through your Ecobee app. However, the best feature of this device is Ecobee integrated HomeKit setup.

The navigation process of ecobee application is also very simple with a newly added camera.

The camera's loading up the live streaming takes just a few minutes through the app. The footage streamed and captured by the device is clear, detailed and staying smooth with high motion activity in front of it.

Moreover, image quality remains quality through black and white night vision. This black and white color combination provide enough details to identify people.

The microphone quality of the camera is impressive. Moreover, you will get excellent speaker quality which you expect for this type of device.

Alexa also working in good condition.

Ecobee Smart Camera Review - Cons

The Ecobee camera is expensive when compared to other marketers.

This camera does not offer features such as an internal battery or local storage option.

As recorded video stored in the cloud, you need a subscription to ecobee's Haven home monitoring service.  Although, without a subscription to the Haven home monitoring service, the device won't much of a security camera at all.

Final Words

The Ecobee smart camera is a good one if you are looking to buy a versatile indoor security camera that does more than detecting motion. This camera not only enables you to use your phone to know what's going on at home but also acts as an Alexa device that can provide the news, weather updates, play music and more. But there are many devices other than Ecobee smartcamera which are integrated with Alexa-powered smart speakers. A security camera with a built-in siren is a great idea but it won't be more effective. If you have any queries on Ecobee smart camera review, leave your comment below.
