Security is on the top of everyone’s minds. The EZVIZ EzGuard 1080 is a one camera security solution.  It delivers great security camera features, equipped with Motion detection and a 100dB siren.  As a full featured surveillance camera,  It also can provide peace of mind. Is the dog in the yard, who is at the front door, how did my front planter break, or has my latest package arrived safely. 

EZVIZ is a pretty new name in the surveillance and security world. They offer a really impressive product line. They have a large range of camera products for your home.  Offering Wire-Free cameras that are battery powered, full wired security kits with a DVR, and a great offering of WI-FI security cameras.

Also they are also hip to home automation, making products compatible with Google Home and Amazon Echo.  EZVIZ will also provide cloud hosting for your video feeds. While the name may be new, turns out they are the consumer and residential focused subsidiary of Hikvision. Hikvision is the largest manufacturer of surveillance type products.

That is great to know. While a new brand, they have a lot of know how behind them.  EZVIZ is located in the city of industry, in sunny California. I expect we will see a lot of great products from them.

One press of the button to set off the 100db alarm will send anyone high stepping away from your porch.  Every time I tested it, every dog in the neighborhood cringed, including my own.

screws with anchors, an ac wall adapter for power (10 ft cord,the cord I received measured under 6’ maybe there was a production change?) and protective caps to weather proof the cat5 connection if you decide to use the wired option.  For the purpose of the review, I am going to use the EzGuard 1080 to replace my current camera on the front porch.
