Reolink Argus PT
At a price below $ 150 Reolink Argus PT outdoor wire-free PTZ camera is one of affordable ptz cameras which is ideal for any surveillance system needs for front yard or back yard of your home, or in front of your office or retail shop business.
With remote panning and tilting and digital zooming capabilities, Reolink Argus pt can reach the whole 360 degree horizontal monitoring areas with color night vision (when ambient light is available). Compare it with ordinary bullet model security camera like Zumimal which only provides a monitoring area only limited to as wide as the specified field of view angle that the camera is manually pointed at.
With a bullet camera with a technical specification of 100 degrees of view angle, to cover the entire 360 degree monitoring area, at least three bullet security cameras are needed, such as the Zumimal wire-free camera. Compare with one Reolink Argus pt camera which can cover all 360 degrees of your monitoring area.

Color night vision
One of the advantages of the Reolink Argus pt camera is the use of Starlight CMOS image sensor which can provide sharp and vivid image quality in low light conditions. Moreover it can provide color night vision when there is still ambient light, and if it is totally darkness then as usual the camera will provide b/w night vision using 6pcs IR LEDs. Zumimal cannot provide color night vision, with auto light detection when it’s getting dark the camera will switch to record in b/w.
