UNBOXED: Reviewing the Conbrov T33 Mini Spy Camera
In the world of home security camera systems, there are tons of options out there for consumers, many of which can be ultra-high powered and incredibly feature-rich. That may be just what some users are looking for, but the price tag and required level of technical expertise may just be a bit much for others. That’s where a product like the Conbrov T33 Mini Spy Camera can fill a certain need.
What’s notable, first and foremost, about the device is its size. The T33 is a very tiny camera that’s cube shaped, and stands just under an inch-and-a-quarter tall and weighing maybe a pound. The lens on the front of the device is a 110-degree wide angle lens that can record up to a full 1080p HD resolution—including at night with its night vision recording mode, which will initiate automatically. The camera can record in those low-light situations with clarity up to 33 feet away.
Listed for a discounted $59.99 (normally $99) on the company’s website seemingly forever, the mini camera is about as simple as they come, technically speaking. There are two buttons on the top of the camera that give the user the ability to place the device in one of two modes: manual recording or motion detection recording. In motion detection mode, the camera will be triggered by anything that moves within the frame up to 16 feet away. Amazingly, the company claims that when the camera is in motion detection mode and on standby, the 1,000mAh battery can last upwards of a year. When in manual recording mode, the battery will last roughly 6 hours during the day and for 3 hours when in night vision mode.
