The new Reolink Lumus Wi-Fi security camera also has a motion-activated spotlight
An increasing number of consumer-grade security cameras are equipped with the night vision - even of the color variety, in some cases - and motion-detection specs sufficient to prove there were interlopers on one's property. Reolink has decided that these capabilities can be built on with the ability to actively discourage the same, however. The newest product from its Wi-Fi-enabled line integrates a spotlight that can go off in response to movement.
The Lumus does this using a 1.6-watt (W)/6500 kelvin (K)/180 lumen (lmn) LED lamp built into the top of its chassis. This component will activate in response to a PIR sensor with a distance of 7 meters (m, or 21 feet(ft)) and a pan of 100 degrees.
In addition, the camera's color night vision (which has a 10m (33ft) distance) will continue to function while the spotlight is on, allowing the Lumus to record details such as those of clothing or vehicles. Its wireless connectivity allows it flexibility in placement, although it does require a 5.0V/2A/6W power input to keep going.
Furthermore, the Lumus also has an alarm that can go off along with the spotlight, as well as 2-way audio for the user. It also has Google Assistant integration for those of a particularly smart-home inclination.
The Reolink Lumus is priced at US$59.99, although it may be available for 10% off this for a limited time. It can be ordered from this OEM's own website.
