Unlike with the system itself, Wi Fi is required for the camera
s to work. The camera is a plain looking black plastic rectangle—which contains a round lens, privacy shutter, microphone, and LED indicator—that slides onto a black metal stand. At 4. 56 by 2. 55 by 2. 08 inches HWD and 5. 3 ounces, it's pretty standard in size as far as home surveillance cameras go. Video is captured in 720p, but looks surprisingly good. It's also quite smooth, and never suffered choppiness in my testing—despite the fact that the camera only operates on the 2. 4GHz
band. When analyzing footage captured with an adjacent 1080p Logi Circle, which supports the 5GHz band, the SimpliCam's video quality was comparable.
