Cocoon – The Best Security Camera to Start With Right Now? [REVIEW]

The Cocoon security camera is small and uses the new Subsound technology (AI) to protect your house.

PROS

  • The Subsound artificial intelligence is new on the market, but works great (works via sounds it picks up and recognizes after time)
  • Does also protect your other rooms (a little bit)
  • It learns when to give you alerts after a couple of days duo to it’s AI
  • Built in (loud) alarm
  • HD video quality (if the Wi-Fi reach is okay)
  • Wi-Fi gets better when it’s connected for a couple of hours
  • App works well
  • You can save previous videos to your camera roll
  • You can view all activity from the past 7 days in the app

CONS

  • A lot of notifications at the start, but it gets better over time
  • No talk-back feature
  • You can only save about three videos each month on your phone
  • You’ll need decent Wi-Fi reach
  • You’ll need to plug it in

 

VERDICT

For the price (compared to other brands), the Cocoon is a good start when you’re looking for a first security camera for your house. The new AI system has a lot of potential and works as promised. The only thing missing is a talkback feature and a built in battery if that could be possible. You can find the Cocoon here.
