Xiaomi Smart Camera C200 with 360° view arrives at lower price with Amazon Alexa support
The Xiaomi Smart Camera C200 is now available in Germany. The gadget is fitted with a 1080p Full HD 2MP camera with WDR support, which can rotate 360° horizontally and 106° vertically for additional security. The device can capture images at night using a 940 nm infrared light, which does not visibly glow. Plus, an AI human detection tool enables you to track and record people automatically.
You can view a live feed or historic videos captured by the camera in the Xiaomi Home app or on a connected device such as the Mi Smart Clock. The company claims that H.265 video encoding technology helps to reduce the space required to save videos by 50%. Plus, you can use the camera for two-way calling thanks to a built-in microphone. The Xiaomi Smart Camera C200 is compatible with the Google Home and Amazon Alexa smart home systems.
You can place the camera on a table or mount it to a wall or ceiling. The white gadget can operate in temperatures from -10 to 40 °C (~14 to 104 °F); Xiaomi notes that the camera should not be placed in a position where it could be exposed to water, as this could damage the device. You can buy the Xiaomi Smart Camera C200 in Germany for €39,99 (~US$43). It is unclear whether or when the gadget will arrive in other markets, such as the UK.
