The videos are recorded in AV format and you can view them from Digooeye app, there is option to convert part or all the video to other format that can be viewed on any video player.

By attaching a power bank you can even carry this camera and use it like a portable, body camera. However that is not what it was made for and the output is really not great,  not worth it, but camera is good for security purpose.

WiFi is needed for first time installation but after that you can use the camera to record even without WiFi. If WiFi is available you can view live stream from anywhere in the world using your smartphone and the Digooeye app.

This Digoo DG-M1Q 960P camera works great in complete dark environment and up to a good distance of 10m.

Just insert the SD card and the camera will start recording, check video review on how you can do that.

Verdict

A very good cost effective option to add security cover to a smaller area like a room or your small office. Use camera guard mode (motion detection), alerts etc and get notified when there is breach. This is not a good option if you want to use it like a camera.

Digoo DG-M1Q 960P IP security camera is available on Banggood.com for $17.99 (approx Rs.1,300).

  6. Thanks for providing info about this nice product. Earlier I was using D link DSS-930L. I paid Rs400+. It worked for some time, I think this product quality is good. Good idea to use battery bank. Also 64GB SD card is quite good. I have ordered and waiting for the product.

  7. Sir what happened after memory card is full with recording. Is it able to delete previous data automatically to record new. Is it safe for outdoor like in rain?

  8. Good for those who have to leave their kids at the mercy of housemaids at home to monitor their activities.

    I mean other operators are not compatible for this. Because they gives IP under NET. Which is not accessible from outside.
