Wisenet SNH-P6416BN SmartCam N2
Wireless indoor HD security camera with face recognition
Our take on the Wisenet SNH-P6416BN SmartCam N2 by Crutchfield's Emily S.
Never miss a thing
Wisenet's SmartCam N2 is an easy way to keep an eye on your home from wherever you are. The free Wisenet SmartCam+ mobile app lets you view previously recorded events or check in on the HD live stream in real time. It also does quite a bit more.
Smarter motion detection
Use the app to customize the areas that will trigger a motion alert. I primarily have security cameras to keep an eye on my dogs, but if you have well-behaved pets, you can turn on “Human Detection” to avoid getting notified about the every movement of your dog or cat.
Recognize familiar faces
The SmartCam also goes a step further than just detecting people. It can actually tell you who they are. Drag and drop the captured images of your frequent visitors into the “Interested Group” list in the app, and you'll receive a push notification with their photo when they arrive. Use the two-way talk feature to let them know you'll be home soon.
Abnormal sound detection
Wisenet's SmartCam is even smart enough to distinguish between every day noise and the really scary stuff. You'll get an immediate alert if it detects sirens, breaking glass, or screaming.
Great footage — day or night
The SmartCam's Wide Dynamic Range means you can feel free to aim it at windows and doors — it will automatically adjust if the subject is backlit. It also transitions between day and night viewing modes so you get the clearest picture no matter what time it is.
Footage is recorded in full HD to its microSD card slot (memory card not included), or you can subscribe to an optional SmartCloud storage plan.

Overview: The Wisenet SmartCam N2 (SNH-P6416BN) is an indoor Wi-Fi camera for home surveillance and monitoring. It can stream Full HD video wirelessly to your computer, smartphone, or tablet (through the free SmartCam App), or record to an inserted microSD memory card. The camera's wide-angle lens covers a large area, even at night.
Camera: The camera comes mounted on a tilting base, which can be placed on a flat surface, or wall mounted with the included screws and wall anchors. For best results, the camera should be placed between 3' and 7' from the floor, and in range of your Wi-Fi network. The SmartCam N2 is 1.811" wide, 4.214" high, and 1.409" deep, and stands 5.25" tall on its 2.873" diameter base. The camera weighs 8.6 ounces, including the base.
Wide Angle Lens: The Wisenet SmartCam is equipped with a fixed focus, wide-angle lens with a viewing angle of 130° diagonally, 112° horizontally, and 62° vertically. It has a viewable length of 32 feet.
High Dynamic Range: Equipped with High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology, the camera lets you see subjects clearly in front of a bright background. The camera brightens the subject and foreground, and darken the background for a balanced scene. In addition, the Wisenet 5 chipset reduces noise in low-light conditions so you can see clearly, even when the lights are off.
Resolution: The camera shoots video in H.264 compression, and streams video at 1920 x 1080, 1280 x 720, or 640 x 360 resolution.
Two-way Audio Communication: The SmartCam N2 has a built-in microphone for picking up sounds near the camera and a speaker so you can communicate via smartphone. In the app, you can set the camera to alert you if audio is detected.
Wi-Fi: The SNH-P6416BN camera can connect to your wired or wireless LAN. It is compatible with 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac in both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands.
Face Recognition: The SmartCam N2 features innovative analytic software to distinguish human faces and human activity. This helps to eliminate any false alerts or notifications caused by your pets. You can put captured images of your "favorite" visitors into a group list in the SmartCam app, so that when those persons are detected, you'll receive a personalized notification whenever they arrive.
Motion/Sound Detection and Zone Alerts: The Setup Menu in the Wisenet SmartCam App allows you turn on motion detection and sound detection, either of which will trigger an alert. The sensitivity level of motion and sound detection can be varied, depending upon your preference for triggering alerts. In addition, you can increase the accuracy of the motion detection by selecting a Motion Zone. For example, you can set a Motion Zone on a window, door, gate, or any other area of interest in the camera's field of view. Up to 3 Motion Zones can be selected at a time. Abnormal Sound Detection zeroes in on particular sounds, such as sirens, glass breaking, and screaming, triggering an alert when unusual events take place while you're away.
MicroSD Card Slot: The camera features a slot for a microSD memory card that provides reliable video storage if you choose not to subscribe to a cloud recording plan. The camera can be set to record continuously, or record only when motion events are detected. The unit will accept microSD/SDHC/SDXC cards up to 128 GB (FAT32 file system).
Wisenet SmartCam App: The ability to view live video and use two-way audio communication from your camera comes through the Wisenet SmartCam app, available from Google Play and Apple iTunes. Setup is easy through the intuitive step-by-step process. In-app features include: Push Notifications, Human Detection, Abnormal Sound Detection, Face Recognition, Live Feed On-demand, and Two-way Talk. The app is compatible with Android devices running OS version 5.0 and up, as well as iPhone/iPad/iPod touch running iOS 9.0 or later.
Wisenet SmartCloud Features: With a paid subscription to the Wisenet SmartCloud service, you get all of the in-app features (listed above), plus additional features. When Human Detection or Face Recognition triggers an alert from the app, the SmartCloud plan begins recording events. Advanced Event Search lets you sort events by the detected faces. Available Wisenet SmartCloud subscriptions include:
|Starter Plan||Essential Plan||Elite Plan|
|View Last Days of Activity||Doorbell||30||60||180|
|Continuous Recording||No||Camera only||Camera only|
