Co­coon Se­cu­rity Cam­era

Computer Active (UK) - - Reviews -

Re­sem­bling a ten­nis ball, the Co­coon is easy to set up from its app, which lets you see a live view and check alerts. Mo­tion de­tec­tion is ba­sic, but an in­fra­sound mi­cro­phone also learns what’s nor­mal in your house­hold, so it can re­spond to any­thing that isn’t. Af­ter a few days, we found drop­ping a heavy ob­ject trig­gered an alert. Clever. Alerts give you the op­tion to set off a built-in alarm, but if you don’t no­tice the alert, bur­glars will re­main undis­turbed (though recorded). 1080p video, saved at 720p, looks clear night or day. Multi-user ge­ofenc­ing is the only op­tion for turn­ing the sys­tem on and off, al­though you can also dis­arm it or trig­ger the alarm us­ing an Ama­zon Echo. VER­DICT: It doesn’t have the widest range of fea­tures, but the Co­coon fo­cuses on be­ing sim­ple to set up and use, and sev­en­day on­line stor­age is free ★★★★☆
