Behag
WiFi heavily uses battery
Mounting on its side can reduce resolution
The short recorded clip that accompanies the alerts isn't helpful, and you'll be left wondering what's going on in a potential moment of crisis
No battery backup
Can't be integrated into other smarthome systems
Produced a couple of false alarms during testing, iPhone only (Android app in development)
Middels batterilevetid
Klemmer litt i hardeste laget p rene
Bassen litt for lett for enkelte
Litt kjedelig design
Ikke sammenleggbare
Mangler litt fylde, spesielt i mellomtonen
Litt for forsiktig bas

Key Features

Megapixels

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Maximum ISO Sensitivity

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Weight

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
