What Sets Them Apart?

EZVIZ offers customers a number of features that set it apart from the competition. These include a free App, EZVIZ Cloud services, Starlight Technology for night vision, advanced quality of video resolution, full integration amongst aspects of the system, and Smarthome partnerships.

The EZVIZ App allows customers to communicate with their EZVIZ systems through the EZVIZ Cloud. It provides a plethora of powerful features while remaining easy to use. With a simple layout, it is simple for users to locate all of their devices and change their settings no matter where they are at the time.

In addition, customers can watch live feeds of the video from their cameras as well as store 30 days of recordings for no charge. Also, during those times that customers cannot be home, EZVIZ offers a two-way talk feature through their App so that customers can speak to those who are in the home.

The EZVIZ Cloud is another service offered. It provides a worldwide video service platform. It allows users to link all the devices in their system and take full advantage of all the features and service EZVIZ offers. Moreover, the EZVIZ Cloud has encryption that is on par with that used by banking institutions to ensure that their customers’ information stays securely on the EZVIZ Cloud.

For clarity of video images, EZVIZ uses Starlight Technology that allows for clear video in any lighting and 4K Smart H.265 technology that delivers crystal clear seamless videos. That way customers can rest assured that if something happens, they will have unmistakable evidence.
