we are going to show you the upgraded Y scam version – I reviewed the original one a while back and now they released their second version with software and hardware enhancements the price of this Wi-Fi security camera is around $26 for 1080p camera which I think is one of the cheapest Wi-Fi cameras around so we’ll check out the features first then show you the updates.
that we did to this second version of their camera first this is a 1080p camera recording at 15 frames per second it has a 110-degree field of view and has 8 x digital zoom it has two-way audio motion detection with push notifications to your smartphone or tablet when it senses motion it has night vision with 4 infrared LEDs at 850 nanometers and with an IR cut filter.
it has both local storage for your videos using a micro SD card and supports up to 32 gigabytes or you can choose the free 14-day rolling cloud storage for your alert videos it has an operating temperature of 32 degrees to 104 degrees Fahrenheit the differences as per wise is the motion tagging which detects and highlights motion capture
there is also improved image quality due to a new CMOS sensor the version 2 also has better sound as compared to the version 1 and it has a matte finish as compared to the glossy finish on the older one what wise didn’t mention is that the version 1 only records at 10 frames per second and the version 2 is now 15 fps
then we have the infrared LEDs which the version 1 only has 2 and the new version has 4 I’ll (show you later on what can two extra LEDs) can do to your video footage now let’s open up the box we have the cube camera itself which looks exactly the same as the original except for the subtle change on the overall finish we have the speaker USB and micro USB slot at the back we have the camera lens light sensor Mike and I are LEDs in the front it has.

there is the new motion tagging feature then the apps album where you will see the alerts footage and I think this is the one that is saved in the cloud servers then there’s the time-lapse feature which I also demoed in my review of the first version there is the view playback where it will show the timeline of the motion events or you will also see the footage if you set the camera to record 24/7 you scrub left or right or pinched out to enlarge the timeline two minutes or seconds.
now let’s check out some footage this is in daytime the lights on yes sir hey bud can you hear me I’m just testing the two-way audio of the Y scam version – so can you hear me pretty clear already but thank you as to alert notification we have about 10 to 15 seconds of delay as tonight vision this is what the Y scam to snipe vision looks like with four LEDs pretty good.
compare this to version one which only has two infrared LEDs big difference and big improvement as tonight visions overall the Y scam version tooth is a definite buy for 26 bucks you will have a 1080p camera with a pretty good video quality in both daytime and at night there are no subscription fees and it can record in a micro SD card motion events or even 24/7 well that’s it guys thanks for watching and hope you like our site ,
