Panasonic KX-HNC800B Full HD Home Monitoring 2020 Detailed Review.
Panasonic KX-HNC800B Full HD Home Monitoring: If you’re looking to keep your home safe and secure, there’s no better investment than a home security camera. But the truth is, the security camera industry is at a bit of a turning point.
Recent developments in technology mean that newer models provide an unprecedented level of quality, while the older models are comparatively disappointing.
When we came across the Panasonic KX-HNC800B Home Monitoring Camera, we knew that we’d found something special. What sets it apart from the crowd is the inclusion of features that extend its functionality.
This is not just a camera that can keep your home safe, but something that can be used for many different purposes. Let’s take a look and see how it performs.
Panasonic is a well-known manufacturer of consumer electronics for all types of purposes. From the first time you set eyes on the Panasonic KX-HNC800B, you’ll catch a glimpse of their classic, sleek design. The camera itself is a compact pillar-shaped unit that’s conveniently mounted to a circular stand.
This stand can be adjusted, so you can place it anywhere you like. For us, the appearance of this camera is the perfect combination of modern and classic. It’s not so ultra-stylish that it draws unnecessary attention to itself, but still has an ‘up-to-date’ appeal about it. It will blend into the décor of any home, making it a great choice for any consumer.
This Panasonic KX-HNC800B is designed to sync up with your mobile life. Thanks to the included Wi-Fi connectivity, you’ll be able to access the locally stored information from anywhere in the world.
For most users, this will take place through the 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi. Over the top of the network, the camera is maintaining the connection with Panasonic’s proprietary Home Network Systems app.
With most of the cameras we review, they’re set up to do just one thing – provide a video feed of a certain area. But it’s clear that Panasonic had much more planned for this handy little camera. One of the first ways they improved the design was with a high-quality microphone.
This is an omnidirectional unit, similar to what you’d use for an office teleconference. This means that it can pick out sound from anywhere in the office, turning even the most minute peeps into crystal clear recordings.
For the most part, you’re going to want to use the Panasonic KX-HNC800B in full HD mode. This means that the 2.0-megapixel sensor will produce stunning video at a smooth 30 frames per second. It’s got a 0.2m focal length, which gives you perfect focus anywhere from 8 inches until infinity. This type of lens is perfect for a security application, as you’ll never have anything out of range or blurry.
From your phone, you can select several different options that can improve this camera’s functionality in a security application. The first one we recommend turning on is pre-recording. The camera is triggered by a motion sensor, but there can often be a delay of half a second.
Pre-recording can mitigate this risk by automatically saving a video before the sensor is triggered. At all times, two seconds of video is saved on the card. If the sensor isn’t triggered, it will be deleted. But if the sensor is triggered, you’ll have the two seconds prior saved. This seems like a minor feature, but it makes a huge difference in the event of an incident.
Although the Panasonic KX-HNC800B is part of a larger kit, there’s a good reason why we selected it. The camera works perfectly fine on its own. It has some of the best videos we’ve seen, and the privacy filter is a nice additive to have when you’re using it indoors. As long as you have a smartphone, you can take advantage of everything this camera has to offer.
