New C2 Honeywell Cam Review

It Tilts - Wall Mount - Table Mount - Audio - Night Vision - HD Color - Indoor

At High Level Alarms we don't sell anything that we don't test.  This camera is the one we've been waiting for, begging for, and it far exceeded our expectations.

In order to understand why I'm so excited about this new camera, I need to tell you about earlier versions by Honeywell, where I felt they really fell short, but what can you do when there seems to be nothing better out there?

The color quality of what was my previous favorite ( the IP Cam WO ) wasn't bad but the new C2 is HD and superb, bright and crystal clear as they get.  A normal field of view never seemed to cut it and what I really wanted to see was a bit of a wide angle.  With a 138 degree wide angle lens, the C2 really does the job.  ( see pic below )

A camera that integrates with your alarm system, all on one app, is great but a recording time of 10 seconds was hardly enough time to turn the camera on and off and it left you wondering what may or may not have occurred after those quick ten seconds and what you may have missed.  Alas, maybe Honeywell got the message because the C2 records for thirty seconds and maintains a seven day data log.  Plus, there is no lag time between clips, so if the action continues, so does the recording.

Honeywell is also now going to offer an outdoor cam but the field of view is only 117 degrees and there will be no audio.  The night led lighting will be superior and reach 65' or so and though this may be great for some locations, I'd still like to see an outdoor version of the C2.  Below is a still pic that shows the clarity and wide angle view of this cam.

A few other features include, selectable motion recording, sound recording, or both.   Even though it's an indoor unit, I live in Florida, so I've placed one outdoors under a roof area.  So far, so good and time will tell how that goes.  All in all I'd rate this as the best cam ever to come from Honeywell. 

One final huge addition is the Privacy Feature that you can set on your phone app.  One touch and your camera is Off, another and it's On.  Most of us do not want to record ourselves.  You can also set up your cam with zwave automation so that it turns on and off according to your alarm beinng armed or disarmed.
