    A lot different than other security cameras

    The camera came nicely packaged in a cylindrical tube, the top half being clear displaying the camera. After cutting a couple seals the top “clear” half comes off and inside you will find the camera, base, magnetic wall/ceiling mount, power adapter, USB Cable “nice and long”, mounting hardware for the mount and a quick start guide. The camera itself has a nice heavy duty feeling to it, it’s not a light piece of plastic by any means. The first thing you’ll want to do is charge the camera, I used the enclosed charger and USB cable then let it charge till the front light turned green. You’ll also want to download and install the Guardzilla app for your Android or IOS device. Next, follow the instructions for turning on the camera and setting up an account through the Guardzilla app. It’s very simple to do and only took me a few minutes to get everything connected and running. What’s very unique about this camera is it really does give you a full 360 degree view, when sitting upright and using their app you can move your phone around to look all around the area, straight up, all around and most of the way down to the floor. The app has a selector to pick how you have the camera mounted. We currently have it mounted on the wall above our front door and it gives an excellent 180 degree view side/side. My neighbor was pretty amazed how you could look around the image with this, “he’ll probably be picking one up very soon”. When setting up the camera you will want to go into the settings and play around with the motion detection sensitivity, brightness, alert types and other settings you may want for your individual preferences. There’s also a built in microphone and speaker that allows you to hear and talk back through the camera, it works pretty well and if the camera isn’t mounted too far away you can be heard fairly easily. Setting the image quality on “high” in the app produces excellent video quality. I don’t know what the hit is on battery life but changing it down a little will probably help extend it. I’ve been heavily testing this unit and recording / viewing a lot more than I normally would so I’ll have to test out the battery life once I get into more real world use. At the moment it’s been a lot of fun being able to pan the phone around and look about the area so I’m pretty much eating up the battery really fast but still get 3 or so days out of it. If you plan on using this where there’s a lot of activity, “or just like messing around with it”, I would recommend using the adapter and cable to keep it powered up, the USB cable is around 10’ long so it’s plenty long to reach. The battery would act as a backup in case of a power outage “as long as your network has backup power”. All the videos are stored in the cloud, and there’s no SD card slot or external onsite storage with this, it’s strictly cloud based. The cloud storage is plenty fast and playback wasn’t hindered on my end either using my home based Wi-Fi, cellular data, or the free public Wi-Fi at my car dealership while I was waiting for an oil change. The free 2 days of storage would probably be plenty for anyone wanting to use this as a monitoring device or short term security. I’d opt for one of the plans they offer for longer videos “30 seconds instead” and longer storage lengths “7 or 30 days” the cheapest plan if you purchase annually is $50 which isn’t bad at all, or $4.99 a month if you want to go that route. The company is also offering professional monitoring but I haven’t looked into this part of it as of yet. This is a new device and somewhat newer technology in the security camera world so I’m going to give the company and developers the benefit of the doubt that they will be enhancing this even more with future updates. Their customer support has been quick to answer back and very helpful getting things figured out. This is a great addition to our security system and I’d recommend it to anyone.

    Super Versatile 360º HD Security Camera

    Wow, it's not often I get a new gadget that really exceeds my expectations, the Guardzilla 360º Outside All-In-One HD Camera did exactly that! When it arrived, it seemed a little larger than some of the other cameras I've owned or tried, it's definitely a substantial device. It ships with the camera unit, 2 mounting options and power/charging cord...very straight forward. Once unpacked I took a quick read through the setup instructions and quickly had the unit up and running and the Guardzilla app installed on my iPhone X. The app walks you through the setup, so it's pretty difficult to not get it right. Overall it took about 5-10 from unboxing to setting all the camera features. And speaking of features, with this camera you can monitor the live feed, adjust the "monitor" or camera setup such as Volume, Brightness, Contrast, etc. There are also options for turning on the listen feature, 2-way communication and taking snapshots. There are numerous options to setup the siren and for arming the unit, such as an auto-arm feature when you leave your local WiFi area...pretty cool! Notifications can be configured to email, text or push alerts if there is motion detected. This is literally the most feature-rich security device I have ever owned. Guardzilla also offers a few service options, such as an online service to store recordings and professional security monitoring. The app is solid with no issues so far, and the follow up from Guardzilla was unexpected. When I registered the camera, they sent a follow up email welcoming me to the company and provided contact info for any support issues. A nice touch! Pros: - Easy setup and usage for camera and app - Crisp and clear video feed with almost no lag..including audio - A multitude of setup options for the camera and alarm - Easy mounting, with the ability to be mounted on a ceiling, wall or counter - Integration with Nest, ITTT, Alexa and Google Assistant - Great company support and follow up Cons: - Alarm isn't super loud, but should be enough to startle an intruder or warn your neighbors - Magnetic mounting system for outside is easy to use, but could allow for unit to be stolen Overall this is one of the best high-tech devices I've purchased in many years. It really lives up to all expectations and would recommend it to anyone looking for a super-versitle HD camera for indoors or outdoors.

    Compact and Full-Featured 360 Camera

    Pros: * Excellent video quality. * Useful (and fun) 360 video panning. * Lots of useful features. * Completely wireless if needed. Cons: * App works (mostly) but is cumbersome and visually outdated. * Value is good but price is a bit high if you need more than one for coverage. Most gadgets like this can be reviewed in two parts; the hardware and the software. The best products have great hardware and very well integrated and functional software. If you can’t get both right; best to get the hardware rock-solid and update the software later. That is the case for this Guardzilla 360 security camera. The hardware is very well designed and I cannot find a fault in it. It feels solid and well-built and is very compact - almost like a floodlight lightbulb that doesn’t need to be screwed in. The video quality is quite good even in low light and it is surprisingly satisfying to pan video in 360 while it’s playing. This camera has a built-in battery that should last a while (depending on usage, of course) or you can keep it plugged in with the supplied long USB cable. The two provided mounting options allow for ceiling, wall and tabletop mounting; all of which are stable and easy to adjust. The software, other the other hand, is passable but not very easy to use. There are numerous menus and settings groups that could be better organized. Some settings didn’t “stick” in that you would change them and come back later to find them reset back to what they were. The main app design (at least for iOS) is a bit dated and doesn’t follow modern design and UI conventions. But, it does mostly get the job done. You can view live video or play back recorded events that were trigged by motion when the unit was “armed” and the rest is gravy. As mentioned above, provided the hardware is good, software can be easily updated later on. Overall, most things worked and I was impressed by the features and video quality, but an app overhaul would go a long way to making this a truly awesome product.

    Substantial camera in a small package

    My first thought when taking the camera out of the packaging was how substantial it is. That was definitely a surprise asset! After unboxing the whole package, I took a quick read of the instructions, downloaded the app to my Android, and got started. Once I configured my Guardzilla account, the app quickly found my new camera and connected it to my network. Once it connected, it took a few minutes to download the latest firmware. That was a nice feature... I've spent many hours setting up networking equipment where I struggle with getting it configured out of the box, only to find out that the issues were all fixed in firmware updates! Once the camera was configured on the network, and had its software updated, it was ready to go. I spent a few minutes getting some settings configured in the app, and I was good to go. I also liked the voice feedback. Rather than wait for a confirmation of what is happening with the camera through flashing lights, or feedback on the application, the setup was assisted by voice guided status updates. Really straightforward to setup. Mounting was a piece of cake, thanks to the included hardware and the magnetic attachment between the wall/ceiling mount and the camera. It is a super strong connection, while still making it easy to make minor adjustments. This most surprising part to me was how well the 360 degree viewing works. Just lift your phone to look up, and spin around to look side-to-side. Makes it possible to see what's going on in the whole yard. There are robust notification options (Push alerts, email and SMS), 2 way communication, and a loud siren included. It will even self arm (to start the push notifications) when you leave the area (off the wifi network). All in all, a lot of features packed into a small package!

    Great hardware, app needs improvement

    I have quite a few cameras, both wired and wireless, but I'm really impressed with the 360 degree view this camera provides. The app has a lot of shortcomings that I hope will be addressed over time. However, even with those shortcomings I like this camera enough that I bought a second one. I have multiple doors on both the front and back of the house and they aren't in a straight line of view. But by placing this camera in the right spot I can pretty much cover everything on the front and everything on the back with two cameras. Now to the shortcomings. These aren't show stoppers for me, but they might be to others so here's the list: 1) You can't download the saved videos from the cloud...yet. Guardzilla support says this will be available in the future. 2) You can't easily switch between camera views if you have multiple cameras. It defaults to the last one you connected to and if you want to switch, you hit "camera list," tap on the camera, then pick "connect." 3) The auto arm feature doesn't work for me. I can choose the camera for the feature, but it doesn't stick. When I go back into the settings, it's always unchecked. 4) There is no other arming option like, say, on a daily schedule. The only option is to manually arm/disarm. 5) There is no desktop/web browser access--only using a phone app 6) It's not clear from the battery indicator when you're on ac or battery--the icon just shows a full battery. 7) There is no screw thread option for mounting the camera--only the magnetic one. Being able to thread it onto a camera mount would at least slow down someone from trying to steal the camera. All except the last item could be addressed with software updates, so I'm hopeful there'll be improvements there. I do like that the cameras just connect via your WiFi and don't need their own hub like some other camera systems. Overall, I recommend this camera based on it's fantastic 360 degree capability and think it'll only get better with app improvements. Like I said, I liked it enough I bought a second one.

    Easy to Install and Sharp Looking

    With so many cameras on the market I was a bit hesitant on this cone shaped camera. Well, it turns out the cone aesthetic works for the mounting and creating a range of dynamic for the 360 degree views. So putting it up at my new place was easy to put up I was just conflicted with which angle I wanted to see it from. It’s not an eye sore either. Normally outdoor cameras are clunky and the Guardzilla is actually pretty and it glistens. It features a two way radio so I can talk to my pets when their outside or scare away a person. Which brings me to the siren to deter intruders and motion alerts in case someone is creeping outside. It’s wore free except when it needs to be charged which is convenient. Even though my place is wired for cameras I still opted for this wireless camera. A few downsides are the app which feels a bit dated and the fact that the cameras features are a bit limited unless you aubscribe to their built in added features. Came with a few months of storage which is great but I wish more features were less restricted like the amount of time videos are retained. Good pick for summer monitoring overall!

    Guardzilla is a good idea that misses on the execution. The camera is relatively easy to setup and get rolling. It offers both battery and plugged in operation. I opted for battery and placed in on the mount that I typically have my Arlo Pro mounted to. The first problem I encountered was the camera continuously dropping off of my Wi-Fi network. What I don't know is if this is really what is going on or the app on my phone telling me it has. The app is beyond terrible. The number one complaint I have with it is that it continuously crashes on my iPhone 8 Plus. When I can get it running I can't seem to get the camera to hold the POV I set for it despite 'saving' it. This is a very big problem for a 360 degree field of view camera. The video quality is passable, but certainly nothing to write home about. The camera does have night vision and also offers two way communication. For the price I suppose this camera is OK, but I am pretty hesitant to recommend it until some of the bugs are worked out.

    Solid Camera, True 360

    I wasn’t sure how literally to take it when a camera is advertised as “360”. But ok, now I get it. I tested it sitting on the floor of my living room pointed straight up, and it’s a full 360 degrees all around, with no seams. Plus I can pan up to the ceiling directly above it. I could also see the floor of the room, so the span of view also extended down. I’m an Android user, and didn’t have any issues with install & setup. It did do a couple updates after original install. The update indicated it would take a few minutes. It took longer than a few minutes, but finished up and worked fine. The slowness could have just been my own network issues. The app itself is about a straight-forward as you can get. Once you open the app, it’s one tap to get to the camera and view the live shot. Panning can either be done by touch or by rotating your phone around (like a VR headset). You can also pinch to zoom. And other key functions (like 2-way audio and snapshot) are directly under the view. Overall, highly satisfied.
