BT Smart Home Cam 100 Review

The Smart Home Cam 100 is a small home security device that you can install in your home to give you peace of mind when you are out and about. The device features a high-definition camera, motion detection and night vision and can send alerts to a dedicated app on your phone meaning you will know if something is going on in your home that shouldn’t be immediately.

Apart from spotting potential burglars there are more fun uses such as checking what your teens or pets are up to while you are out.

We were sent the Smart Home Cam 100 to review and it did give me peace of mind whilst we were away at Camp Bestival, as I was able to check on the house and ensure the teens were feeding the cats and not having wild parties!

The BT Smart Home Cam 100 just plugs into a wall socket and is configured via a free app which is compatible with iOS and android systems on the phone or tablet, which sets up wifi and streaming. It’s simple to use and the app can either watch live video, capture images or record video.

The image has a little bit of fisheye on it which lets the camera get a wide-angle of vision – a massive 93° field of vision, plus the BT Smart Home Cam 100 has night vision to ensure you can keep an eye on your home night and day.

It also has motion and detection feature; you decide on which disturbances trigger the monitor, and the BT Smart Home Cam 100 will send you a notification. You can then access the video stream to uncover what triggered the sensor, wherever you are.

The downside to it is hubby can check up on me and if I sit down with a cuppa and a biscuit and he happens to check in then I am busted lol!

With an RRP of £99 it is ideal for those who work away from home a lot or even families of teens who work as you can check your teen has arrived home safely from school.

  1. We’ve got a different one of these and it has two way speaking on it so the husband could hear everything going on at home and join in the conversation from work! I felt like I was being watched all the time though so we don’t use it now! We’ll put it back if we go away for any length of time.

  2. This is a great little device. Is there only one camera or would you have to buy one for each room? It would’ve been great when we were away to check that the neighbours were feeding the cat!

  3. This morning viewing the Home Cam on my iphone through my BT hub was fine. When outside on mobile 0G 3G 4G, could simply not connect. When using friends wi-fi “loading” just kept rolling on forever. Got back home and inspite of resetting Home Hub and Home Cam I still get “loading forever.

    The Cam is a good piece of kit. Regretfully like BT wi-fi (unmpteen million hotspots – slowert than dial up in my expeirience.) the app is crap.
