“Feature-packed and well-priced, the PT’s our new favorite ★★★★★“
“Samsung’s SmartCam PT is the best IP Camera we’ve played with since the Netatmo Welcome. The pan-and-tilt functionality and high resolution mean you can get away with one PT where you’d usually need multiple cams. While it lacks the Welcome’s face recognition tech, the PT’s maneuverability more than makes up for it. And the lower price tag helps, too.”

The remote Pan/Tilt feature increases the visibility of your home from any angle. It is crafted so you can easily monitor your home from your smartphone without any blind spots. The camera remotely pans 350° and tilts 175°. With a wider and better coverage, you’ll be able to see more than ever.
1080p Full HD resolution
The 1080p Full HD delivers a crystal-clear view of your home through your device. The camera captures clear and sharp videos, so you won’t miss out on the slightest detail in view. The 1/3.0-inch CMOS sensor provides maximum lighting through the lens, producing videos with strikingly vivid colors and details.
You can remotely track any object or subject within the SmartCam’s view with the auto tracking feature. Just activate the auto tracker on your smartphone or tablet and it will automatically track the closet moving object or subject. And you can keep an eye on your pet or children to make sure they aren’t causing trouble when you’re away.
Monitoring your home every second isn’t always necessary to some people. Your home may not need 24 hour monitoring, especially if you are home, therefore, the Privacy Mode was integrated into the camera to give you the space you want. Simply put your camera onto privacy mode, and the camera head will tilt 80° down to hide the lens. Remote viewing and recording abilities will be disabled for the time being.
The SmartCam has a built-in mic and speaker to let you hear what is happening in the surroundings of your home through the camera. The Two-Way Talk feature allows you to interact with your family and pets with just a push of a button on your device. So you’ll always be connected to your home, even when you’re away.
Motion Zone Select
The Motion Zone Select feature detects events in the selected areas chosen by you. You can select up to three motion zones within the camera’s field of view. So if your kids are home from school or your pet is running into the kitchen, the SmartCam will detect it and notify you immediately. You’ll always have instant access to your home when away and be aware without the constant false alarms.
The SmartCam delivers strikingly sharp and vivid videos with True Day and Night. It adjusts accordingly to the lighting conditions of the camera’s location, so everything in view will be clearly visible during the day and night. The IR LED for night vision brings clarity to your home so you can see up to 5 meter in complete darkness. You can easily check up on your house and children at night without turning the lights on.
Event notification keeps you connected to your home through real-time alerts, anytime, anywhere. If the SmartCam detects any unusual activities, it will send you a push and e-mail notification immediately. The event notification will provide real-time feedback of your home at all times.
Wide Dynamic Range
The Wide Dynamic Range feature allows the SmartCam to handle an extensive range of lighting conditions in your home. It will easily distinguish a subject in an area of high brightness and low brightness by adjusting accordingly to the conditions to deliver beautifully vivid and detailed videos. Now you can see your child뭩 bright smile in the shadows of your home.
SD Card and Recording Options
Unlike other home cameras, the SmartCam offers users the option of recording with local storage. The microSD memory card holds up to 128 GB, so you can go back to watch the moments you cherish most. There are three ways to record onto the SD Card: continuous recording, event recording, and Scheduler. Continuous recording allows you to record without any interruption. But if you want to minimize storage use, you can easily switch from continuous recording to event recording or Scheduler. Event recording lets you record when an event is detected within the cameras view, whereas Scheduler records based on the time set by you. So when you뭨e at work or away, your SmartCam will keep an eye on your home.
