360 1C visual doorbell review

By  Matthieu Andre 2019-06-10 153 0

Nowadays, family safety is getting more and more attention, and it is followed by the birth of intelligent monitoring products. On May 14, 2019 in China, 360 introduced a smart visual doorbell 1C, this product combines traditional doorbell and cat eye together, it’s supports 24-hour monitoring, visitor identification, doorbell remote call and so on. Here is a specific review about 360 1C.

Appearance

The 360 video doorbell 1C is equipped with a rectangular box that includes a doorbell, mounting base, positioning sticker, room bell, USB power cord screw pack, and removal pin.

360 visual doorbell 1C's shape is very small, the main part of the doorbell is pure white, the square body is rounded contours, the appearance is very simple and generous. Below the white area on the right side of the fuselage is the doorbell button. When turned on, the button will light up the blue breathing light, while the black area on the front side is the camera + human body infrared sensor.

Installation

There are two installation methods for the 360 video doorbell.

The first installation method is relatively simple. Simply remove the red sticker on the mounting base, then attach the mounting base to the smooth wall surface, and finally buckle the doorbell from the top to the bottom. Because of the light weight of the doorbell itself, this method of installation is relatively strong. It should be noted that the adhesive can only exert 100% tack after 24 hours of sticking.

If you feel that the first one is not too strong, you can use the screws in the package to fix the base to the wall. However, this method is not recommended. It is troublesome to install and may damage the wall.

In fact, the 360 1C mounting backplane comes with a 3M backing tape, that is very secure. After the installation, we tested the firmness. Whether it is pushing, dialing, or smashing or pressing, it is difficult to remove it by brute force. In addition, the doorbell has its own WiFi receiver, so there is no need to worry about the distance between the internal and external units.

On the back of the doorbell, there are a switch button, a SET button, and a charging port. When you first use it, we can pair with the mobile app by pressing and holding the SET button for about 5 seconds after booting. Finally, after the indoor bell is energized, it will automatically pair with the doorbell, press the doorbell, and the indoor bell will sound synchronously. And we can also adjust the volume by the physical buttons on the side of the room bell, and also choose different doorbells according to personal preferences. This completes the entire installation.

Usage

After installing, let's see how it works. The biggest difference between a video doorbell and a traditional doorbell is that it can be used to implement many interesting functions with the help of the Internet and mobile apps. The visual doorbell should be used in conjunction with the App, so you must first download an app called “360 Camera”on your mobile phone, and then register the account and log in.

We can use the App to check the situation of outside at any time, you can check the details even if you are not at home.

For example, when someone rings the doorbell, the doorbell will remotely call the owner's mobile app in time, and your app will push a message that someone is ringing the doorbell. We can use our mobile phone to make video calls with our visitors. Of course, visitors can't see any of our information.

In addition, based on the AI face recognition technology developed by the 360 Artificial Intelligence Institute, the 360 1C can also intelligently identify the person who came to ring the doorbell. App can record the face for identification, add facial information of family or friends in the app, so that when the family or friend rings the doorbell, we can also receive relevant information.

If it is a stranger, as long as she or he pass, squat, and stay in front of the door, the doorbell will automatically detect the video and promptly push the message to the mobile app. In addition to pushing information, 360 1C also supports real-time transmission of recorded video to the cloud for storage. The cloud save time is 2 days.

Security

Some people may worry, what if they are maliciously stolen outside or destroyed by violence? 360 has already thought of the solution, built a set of forced demolition alarm system for the product, once the outdoor doorbell is demolished, it will send a sharp alarm sound and accompany the reminder tone of "put the doorbell back to the original place", and will also be the first Time pushes the information of the demolitions outside the door to the user's mobile client. Only when operating from the App, the doorbell can be removed normally.

The 1C is equipped with a large wide-angle lens of 720P, which is quite enough for a doorbell. After testing, the camera has a better color reproduction, a large viewing angle, and clear characters, even if there is no ghosting in fast motion. The official propaganda has a viewing angle of 160°, a horizontal viewing angle of 110°, and a vertical viewing angle of 58°. In the actual use of these days, the 360 visual doorbell can basically cover the door. There are no obvious blind spots and dead ends.

It is necessary to specify that the doorbell must be placed strictly according to the standard of 1.4 meters during installation. Otherwise, if the height of the visitor is less than 1.6 meters, the face may not be fully displayed. In addition, under the support of infrared night vision, the situation in front of the door can be clearly seen when the night light is weak. This is also thanks to the six 940nm infrared lamps equipped with the 360 1C.

Battery life

In the battery life section, the 360 1C has a built-in 2600mAh lithium-ion battery that can be used repeatedly for charging.

According to the official reference data, it can be used for about 3 months. If there is no power, the app on the phone will also send a notification to remind you to use the disassembly pin to remove the host for charging.

Sum up

After a few days of use, the practicality of the 360 visual doorbell 1C is actually beyond expectations. It is not only a simple doorbell function, but also any changes that occurs outside the door are recorded. At the same time, the installation is very convenient, the shooting is clear and the operation is simple. You deserve it!
