UNBOXED: Reviewing the Robbi Wi-Fi Camera
Contrary to popular belief, most home invasions occur between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. and most burglars will use the front door. Although burglary has actually been on the decline according to FBI data (likely because of the rise in security cameras), it can happen to anyone, and it’s important to be prepared. With an indoor security camera like Robbi, you’re not only preparing to catch an individual in the act, but with the siren feature, you can also successfully deter criminals before they ever even make it inside.
The Robbi Smart Camera connects with the Momentum app to give users a real-time look at their home from anywhere, day or night. Creating an account, connecting to Wi-Fi and setting up the camera only takes a few minutes, but you may also want to make some rules and adjust the settings. Personally, I keep my camera on low for both sound and motion detection. Out of the box, my camera was set to high motion detection, and it was picking up headlights that would leak in from the nearby window. Admittedly though, I live on a very busy 4-lane highway so this hyper-sensitivity may actually be a good thing for those who live on quiet streets.
In addition to low motion and audio detection, I also established the door as a motion zone by highlighting the area within the app. This helped the camera avoid family members that were walking about since the camera captures a wide viewing angle. Even with these settings, there remained a few times that the camera would pick up motion or sound that I didn’t want. So to take things even further, I created rules within the Momentum app.
