I’m a big fan of devices that have minimal set-up and assembly required. That is exactly what you get with the SmartCam N1. Out of the box, you simply have to plug the cable into it and into a power source and then connect through the app. That’s it. There aren’t any complicated steps to put the camera together or over the top wiring that needs to be routed through the camera base — just a single power cable.


Despite some initial problems in getting the camera connected, it’s been a joy to work with. It was easy to set up (after the first try) and the app interface is intuitive for users. The camera is compact and can be placed nearly anywhere. I love that the camera stand has a notch in it for the cable management and that the stand itself is weighted for balance. With a $130 price tag, it’s an affordable high-quality camera that has a lot of uses.
