Aquarium remote video monitoring has seen a resurgence with the release of the newest underwater camera, but the high cost has many people looking elsewhere. This included me, and this is what I decided to give a try - The New FishKAM available on Amazon.com retailing for $19.99 for a limited launch promotion - https://www.amazon.com/FISHKAM-Aquarium-Wireless-Remote-Monitoring/dp/B06XPKMX13/
The packaging is very clean and professional and well packaged.
The camera is extremely easy to set up. You download the 360eyeS app on the iTunes or Android stores, and follow the prompts to add your camera.
The camera has an attached suction cup that allows attachment to the tank or any other smooth surface, and has a mobile neck for positioning the camera. One limitation is that the neck has one spot that does not allow you to completely lay the camera flat against the aquarium glass if mounting in certain positions.
The camera power cable is also a bit short, and may limit the location of installation. This could possibly be remedied with a USB extension cable, but I have not tried this yet. The fisheye lens allows a great wide angle view of the tank, and the quality is more than enough to view your fish and corals. The camera allows you to capture photos, and even video. One additional nice feature is the ability to speak over the camera with the touch of a button! This comes in handy when helping a fish sitter with your tanks while away!
Overall, with the introductory price of $19.99, this is a nice monitoring tool with many features of much more expensive options.
Have you tried this or any other economical video tank monitoring camera? Post your experiences below!
