Oco WiFi Cloud Camera vs eRobot D1000

Comparison between Oco WiFi Cloud Camera and eRobot D1000

Today, home/office monitoring and protection become much easier than ever before. Users no longer need to spend thousand dollars on installation of a complete video surveillance and recording system. With WiFi enabled installed in your house, you can keep an eye on everything when you are away from home. There are so many WiFi enabled security cameras are available in the market, today we are going to introduce you two very similar WiFi enabled HD cameras, they are oCO WiFi Cloud Camera and eRobot D1000 WiFi Smart Camera.

Put these two cameras together, although they are a little bit different, overall they look quite similar. Oco, a security company in Latvia, has branches across European countries. Oco WiFi cloud camera is the latest entrant in the growing WiFi cloud camera market, and like the Dropcam and iON offerings it has motion and noise detection abilities (from PCMAG). eRobot D1000 from Unifore, it's a smart IP camera which offers P2P connection, plus has built-in humidity/temperature sensor + passive infrared motion sensor to offer temperature alert and burglary detection abilities.

Oco Camera vs eRobot D1000 on Design

eRobot D1000 shares the same puck-like form factor as OCo Cloud Camera, but eRobot D1000 has round black-and-white lens housing is attached to a round stand by a post that lets you swivel the camera 360 degrees and 90 degrees tilt. Additionally, both camera can also fold the camera down into the stand for convenient wall mount installation.

Cloud Monitoring vs Local Video Storage

Similar to Dropcam, the oCO clound camera doesn't have built-in MicroSD card slot to support on-board video storage. User has to subscribe the cloud storage plan to record and save the video footage. Oco offers three different cloud plans, keep footage clips from your cameras in Cloud for 1 day goes for 3.99 Euro per month, Cloud for 7 days 9.99 Euro per month, for 19.99 Euro per month, you can store 30 days video clips on cloud server, and you can share video footage up to 16 users. oCo camera equipment sells at 149 Euro per unit, added with the subscription fee, the annual cost is Expensive.

Cloud Storage vs On-board Storage

On the contrary, the D1000 has built-in MicroSD card to support local video storage. Currently, it can support up to 128G on-board storage. Whether you set your camera for continuous, scheduled, or alarm only recording, you can view the video footage on your smartphone from anywhere. Additionally, eRobot D1000 comes with CMS Client Software, which allows users to manage multiple cameras on single computer. The CMS client software support real time monitoring, two-way intercom, video recording, as well as receiving alarm event.

Apparently, the eRobot D1000 can provide much more flexibility than oCO cloud camera. Furthermore, eRobot D1000 complies with Onvif protocol, it works with third-party's NVR or Onvif Viewer/Client Software. When consider the data retrieving and security, recording locally is better than uploading video footage to cloud server.

720p HD Day & Night Video Monitoring

oCO camera is equipped with a 1/4" progressive scan CMOS image sensor, while eRobot D1000 adopts 1/3" progressive scan CMOS image sensor. Obviously, eRobot D1000 has better low illumination performance. Both cameras can deliver crisp images with 1280x720 resolution. When considering the viewing angle, the eRobot D1000 furnished with 3.6mm lens to provide approximate 75 degree field of view, and oCO camera can provide 120 degree field of view. oCO camera uses regular 11 Infrared LEDs to provide night vision, while eRobot D1000 utilizes the two infrared LED Arrays to provide wide angle night vision with power efficiency.

Motion Detection Comparison

Similar to other HD IP cameras, oCO supports video motion and noise detection. When oCO detects motion or sound, the camera will send push notification to mobile devices. As we know video motion detection is based on pixel changing by objects' moving, it's inaccurate to detect burglary. To provide accurate motion detection, the eRobot D1000 has extra PIR motion sensor which is designated to provide accurate human motion detection. The dual motion detection technologies ensure the camera only sends you push notification once the Human motion is detected.
