Peephole cameras or digital peephole viewers are simple but helpful digital equipment which could easily solve the difficulty of viewing through a narrow hole in the door to see outside. Here we review 4 top items in this category.
When shopping for a peephole camera there are several factors which should be considered in order to get a great product.
The first factor is if the digital peephole replaces standard sized peepholes in doors or need additional work to install. (All of the models reviewed here could replace regular peepholes)
Second factor which might not be important for some users is the ability to record videos/pictures. Some peephole camera models offer this functionality and some don’t.
After that, LCD screen size and image quality should be taken into account.
And some of the specifications might not be note in the official descriptions of these products – especially the negative ones. For instance, when reading some reviews from actual buyers, we noticed that in some peephole cameras, it takes some time for the screen to show up a camera image after the button is pressed.
