Zmodo Sight 180

Zmodo Sight 180 is an advanced indoor security camera with a sleek design that lets you monitor your home from anywhere in the world using the Zmodo app. This Zmodo indoor camera is named “Sight 180” in recognition of the fact that it provides 1080p HD video recording with a 180° lens angle. This, together with the two-way intercom facility, gives you an in-depth view of your home.

Zmodo Sight 180 Design

Zmodo Sight 180 comes with a sleek stainless steel stand on which the camera is mounted. The stand features the name ‘Zmodo’ on the centre and the camera can be rotated 360 degrees. The camera head has a magnetic connection to the stand so the two won’t come apart. You can make the camera point in any direction you want. Zmodo Sight 180 even won the 2017 iF Design Award.

  • Smart Alerts: You can also set up alert schedules and motion detection zones – you can set up zones within the 180° field of vision from which you do or don’t want alerts. This helps minimise false alarms.

Zmodo Sight 180 FAQs

Does Zmodo Sight 180 accept SD cards?

No, Zmodo Sight 180 doesn’t accept SD cards. The recorded video is stored in the Zmodo cloud from which you can download it to your computer or smartphone.

If I don’t pay for cloud storage or use an NVR, will I be unable to store motion-triggered alerts?

Motion-triggered alerts are stored in the Zmodo cloud for 12 hours regardless of whether you have a subscription. As such, you have plenty of time to view the recorded footage and save it on your computer or smartphone.

Can the Zmodo Sight 180 be mounted on the wall or ceiling?

Zmodo Sight 180 doesn’t come with wall mounting brackets. However, you can purchase mounting brackets separately and mount it on the wall or ceiling.

Can I set up the Zmodo camera to call me if the motion alert is triggered?

Zmodo Sight 180 sends you a push notification on your phone, but it doesn’t call you.

Zmodo Sight 180 C

Zmodo Sight 180 C is a 1080p HD Zmodo security camera with a wide-angle lens, advanced motion detection abilities, two-way audio, and (limited) free cloud storage. This Zmodo security camera is quite similar to the aforementioned Zmodo Sight 180 – the prime difference between them is the style and how they’re mounted. While Sight 180 doesn’t come with any mounting brackets or screws, Sight 180 C comes with a mounting gear so you can put it up on your walls without any additional purchases.

Zmodo Sight 180 C Design

Zmodo Sight 180 C has a unique design – it basically looks like a rectangular phone with a large camera. The camera has a rectangular body – the upper half is black and holds the camera and the lower half is white and bears the ‘Zmodo’ insignia. The dual-tone aesthetic is sleek and convenient, but it’s not as attractive as Zmodo Sight 180 with its circular head and magnetic base.

Zmodo Sight 180 C also comes with a platform on which you can mount the device, so it can stand on a tabletop. It also comes with a mounting bracket and screws with which you can mount it on a wall or ceiling. You need to connect the camera to a power source for it to work, so it’s not an entirely wireless camera. Zmodo Sight 180 C hasn’t won any design awards like the aforementioned Sight 180 – but that’s expected considering its fairly standard styling.

If you’re looking for a Zmodo indoor camera that’s extremely stylish, you should stick to the Sight 180. But if you’re looking for a Zmodo indoor camera that’s more functional and comes with a mounting bracket, then Zmodo Sight 180 C is the better option.

Zmodo Sight 180 C Features

Zmodo Sight 180 C has pretty much the same set of features as the Sight 180. The following is an overview of all of its impressive features and capabilities.

  • Remote Monitoring: With Zmodo Sight 180 C, you can use the Zmodo app to check in on your home at any time of the day or night and from any part of the globe.
  • Full HD Wide-Angle View: Zmodo Sight 180 C has a Full HD 1080p camera with a wide-angle lens that can capture a 180° field of vision. As such, Zmodo Sight 180 C gives you an extremely clear sweeping view of the surroundings and you can even zoom in on parts of the room without distorting the vision.
  • Adjustable Night Vision: This Zmodo indoor camera also has an incredibly impressive night vision feature. It can capture a video of up to 16 feet in complete darkness and you can also adjust the sensitivity of the IR lenses according to the level of darkness.
  • Duplex Two-Way Audio: Zmodo Sight 180 C comes with an in-built anti-noise microphone and a loudspeaker. As such, you can use your Zmodo app to communicate with those on the other end of the camera. Whether it’s your child, your pet, or thieves at night, you can communicate with them through the speakers using your smartphone.
  • Smart Motion Detection: Zmodo Sight 180 C has one of the smartest motion detection cameras on the market. You can schedule motion detection for specific times of the day or you can set up motion zones within the camera’s field of vision. This means that whenever the camera detects motion in a specific zone and during a specified time, it sends a push notification to your phone and starts recording a short clip. You can then take relevant actions. The recorded video is stored in the cloud for 12 hours, which is enough time for you to review it and possibly download it to an external server or hard-drive.
  • Cloud Storage: All users get access to a basic cloud plan in which the recorded videos are stored in Cloud memory for 12 hours. However, you also get access to a 30-day free trial of the 7-day cloud recording plan.
  • Voice Navigation: Zmodo Sight 180 C, like most Zmodo devices, is compatible with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant devices. This means that you can use any of these devices to give commands to the camera. If you use an Amazon Alexa tablet, you can also view footage on it.

Zmodo Sight 180 C FAQs

What is the difference between the Zmodo Sight 180 and the Zmodo Sight 180 C?

The primary, indeed, the only differences between Zmodo Sight 180 and Sight 180 C are in their design and where they can be mounted. Zmodo Sight 180 is definitely the classier indoor security camera in terms of aesthetics – however, it can only be kept on a table or flat surface because it doesn’t come with mounting brackets or screws (though some people do use external mounting brackets). Zmodo Sight 180 C, in comparison, comes with three screws and a mounting bracket so it can easily be mounted on a wall or ceiling.

How long is the camera’s power cord?

Zmodo Sight 180 C comes with a 6-foot long power cord but you can also get a USB extension cable to increase the length.

Can the camera be turned sideways to look at different parts of the room?

Zmodo Sight 180 C has a 180° lens angle, which means it already gives you complete sight of the entire room. So, there’s no need to turn it sideways!

Can the recorded footage be saved on a memory card?

Zmodo Sight 180 C doesn’t have any SD card slots, so you can’t save the footage on a memory card. This wireless camera must be connected to the internet so it can save the footage directly to the cloud, where you have 12 hours to view and download it.

Can I disable the blue light?

If the Zmodo is blinking blue, it means that it’s connected to the Wi-Fi and you can’t disable the light. If it starts blinking green, it means there’s no Wi-Fi connection.

Zmodo Snap PT

Zmodo Snap PT is a 360° wireless camera with pan and tilt features that can record in 1080p quality. It’s completely portable so you can even carry it while travelling and install it anywhere you want. If you’re concerned about the limited field of vision, you can install this security camera in the middle of the room, so it can pan all around and let you monitor every corner of the room.

Furthermore, the Zmodo Snap PT security camera can also be paired with Zmodo Window and Door Sensors so it can send push alerts if someone tries to break in through any of your openings. As such, this is a completely comprehensive Zmodo security system.

Zmodo Snap PT Design

Zmodo Snap PT looks like a tiny cylindrical robot. It has a black metallic aesthetic with a bulbous camera perched on top. The sides of the security camera are silver and metallic. The word ‘Zmodo’ features on the bottom of the device and there’s a blinking blue light just under the camera’s head, indicating that the camera is active and connected to the Wi-Fi network.

This is a wireless camera that runs on battery, so you don’t need to connect it to a power source. However, in addition to the camera, you also get a separate charging pad and power adapter with which you can charge it. This Zmodo Snap PT camera comes with its own base, so you can set it on a flat surface.

Zmodo Snap PT Features

Zmodo Snap PT is one of the most advanced Zmodo indoor cameras and comes with a wide range of advanced features. The following is a detailed overview of its features.

  • Wireless: Zmodo Snap PT is a completely wireless camera that runs on the included 3900mAh battery. This gives you ultimate portability because you can carry this wireless camera wherever you go and monitor any location at all, without the need to find a power source.
  • Complete Rotation: The aforementioned Zmodo Sight cameras have a pretty impressive field of vision with a 180° lens angle. This camera, in comparison, has a lens angle of only 151°. Despite that, it still offers much better coverage because the lens angle is paired with complete 360° rotation – you can remotely turn the camera around so it monitors every single corner of your room. This eliminates blind spots completely. In addition to sideways rotation, this wireless camera also tilts 15° both up and down, which means it captures greater vertical footage.
  • Two-Way Speakers: This camera also features an anti-noise microphone and a loudspeaker. As such, you can use the Zmodo app to remotely communicate with those on the other end of the camera.
  • Face Recognition: With Snap PT’s advanced face recognition algorithms, this camera can recognise distinctive facial features like race, gender, and other features to notify you when a friend is coming over. You can also set it up to send push notifications when a stranger approaches.
  • PIR Motion Detection: This camera comes with an extremely advanced motion sensor that can detect movements up to 26 feet away. Furthermore, the PIR motion sensor is smart enough to avoid false alarms induced by shaking trees and moving cars. Once it identifies motion, it sends a push notification to your Zmodo app and records a clip that’s stored in the cloud for 12 hours. You can then download the footage to your hard-drive if you choose.
  • Voice Activation: Zmodo Snap PT is compatible with all Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant devices, so you can activate it or control it using your voice. You can also use devices like the Amazon Echo to view live footage.
  • Zmodo Window and Door Sensors: Zmodo Snap PT comes with two Zmodo Window and Door Sensors. You can attach them to the windows and doors in different parts of your house. When someone tries to break into your home using these points of entry, you’ll receive a notification and the camera will start recording footage. The Snap PT even rotates towards the triggered sensor, so it captures accurate footage from the right location. The sensors are also smart enough to avoid false alarms like shaking windows due to the wind.

How long does Zmodo Snap PT last when it’s fully charged?

As mentioned previously, you don’t need to subscribe to a cloud service to use Zmodo cameras.

The following are some of the advanced features you can access with a Zmodo cloud subscription.

  • 24/7 Cloud Recording: Depending on the Zmodo cloud package you purchase, you get access to 24/7 motion alert recordings that are stored in the cloud for 7 days or 30 days.

  • Time-Lapse Videos: Reviewing hours of footage can be tedious and time-consuming. However, with Zmodo’s time-lapse feature, you can go through hours of footage quickly.

Troubleshooting issues answered

How do I reset a Zmodo camera?

What does it mean if a Zmodo camera is blinking green?

If your Zmodo camera is blinking green, it means your device is ready to connect to the Wi-Fi. You should proceed to connect the device to your phone.

Why does my Zmodo camera go offline?

Your Zmodo camera may go offline (disconnect from the internet) if your Wi-Fi connection is weak or if the camera has connected to the wrong wireless signal name. You should first check your network to make sure it’s stable.

If the network is stable, it means your Zmodo camera is probably connected to the wrong SSID (wireless signal name). This may happen because some Zmodo cameras operate at a frequency of 2.4Ghz and some operate at 5Ghz. If your router has dual frequencies of 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz – and both of them have the same SSID – then your camera may connect to the wrong frequency.

The following steps will help you troubleshoot this problem:

  • Go to your wireless router settings.
  • Locate the wireless signal name (SSID).
  • Use different names for the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz SSIDs.
  • Connect your Zmodo camera again and to the correct corresponding frequency.

There are a lot of smart indoor cameras and security cameras besides Zmodo. In this section, we give you a brief overview of some of the best alternatives to Zmodo indoor cameras and see how they stack up against the three aforementioned Zmodo cameras.

Arlo Pro 3

Arlo Pro 3 is a completely wireless 2K HDR indoor camera with intelligent motion detection, night vision, and integrated spotlight. It’s an extremely smart indoor camera with an ultra-wide lens angle but it’s expensive and you need a smart hub for it to work.

Wyze Cam Pan

Wyze Cam Pan is a fairly inexpensive indoor camera with motion detection and time-lapse features. However, its best aspects are the free cloud storage and the 360° mechanical pan and tilt with which you can examine the entire room. However, while you get HD video recording, you may experience some barrel distortion.

D-Link DCS-8300LH

D-Link DCS-8300LH provides sharp 1080p video recording along with motion and sound detection. The best aspect of this camera is the free cloud storage and local storage options. However, this camera also has some barrel distortion problems.

Nest Cam Indoor

Nest Cam Indoor is an excellent indoor security camera with crystal-clear 1080p recording, facial detection, motion detection, and sound detection. It’s especially useful in communicating with other smart home devices. However, it’s expensive and most of its features are only available with a subscription.

Ring Indoor Cam

Ring Indoor Cam is an affordable indoor security camera with motion detection and great video quality. However, a subscription is necessary to access the recorded videos, which means this camera necessitates subscription in general, making it one of the most expensive options in the long run.
