Soliom solar camera has just hit the market, and I could not wait to own it. As expected, I was blown away by its unmatched features. This solar power and wire-free camera for smart door is the first of its kind. I barely have to worry about the cam’s maintenance because it has been graded as IP66 weatherproof. Also I could easily install it on my house’s roof top.
Moreover, I had to put no input from my side to alter between day and night modes. Soliom cam can do that for itself. Although we have not faced yet faced security threat, the cam’s HD visual and alarm mechanism will surely help me to track down any menace if occurs. I will provide the readers with honest solar camera review here. These pros and cons will help you make a sensible decision.

Cons to consider
- I have observed some loopholes in this cam, but I am ready to overlook those since the pros are certainly outweighing the cons. Still, let me share some trivial issues.
- Micro SD card is not included in this solar cam and it does not support Alexa. Inclusion of these two features could improve the functionality of this product.
- If your camera is placed far from the wi-fi router, then you might have to use an extender for uninterrupted connection thereby ensuring effective surveillance security of your house.
- On sunny days, the smart camera gets charged to the fullest potential, but on cloudy day it takes time. Thus, you may have to deal with low battery warning and frequent recharging on some rare occasions.
- Since this product is totally new, it is expected that the next models will tackle the said issues and there will be better versions.
