I have tried and test countless home security cameras now and Yale is the newest one to drop in and Yale is a company people who would be more familiar with locks but now have entered the smart arena with their smart living range which is welcome..

The camera itself is easy to instal which is vital today especially with regulations we have here and requires no professional at all all you need is a drill and the screws required then you mount the plate and you are good to go.

Let’s check out the contents first should you have missed it.

The features on the camera are great which I will list below as we are now doing a more hands on approach with our tech reviews. One thing I think is an excellent bonus here is the built in spotlight which is a great deterrent today for invaders on your property this is one of the first things that will make them think twice about going any further and should be a standard in the smart security industry..


In App Control – Set up and control your All-in-One camera via the Yale View app. We go through the app in detail in the video review..

Built-in Spotlight – Turn the security light on, off or activate on motion detect only, and adjust the brightness to suit your individual needs. This is an excellent feature and adjustable to your requirements as you will see explained.

Two-way Talk – With two way talk you can communicate with callers, advising the postman to leave your package with a neighbour, or let friends know to ‘come round the back’ when you are in the garden. A must have in any security system today. Again tested minus the feedback issues you get when testing this out,but this works perfectly fine.

No Monthly Fees – Access live feed, intercom, siren and light features straight from the box with no monthly fees. A win win for consumers NO FEE.

Siren Alarm – The in-built siren is ideal for getting rid of unwanted visitors and suspicious characters and can be activated within the Yale View app putting you in full control. it is loud enough to deter an intruder to your property it front or rear..

Motion Detect Alerts – With motion detect alerts you will always be in the know when someone has called at your door. Add an SD card to your camera to capture motion detect events or link to a Yale Smart CCTV DVR for constant back up recording of all activity at your door.

Image Masking – Ensure you only get alerted when a visitor enters a specific area in front of your camera.

Weatherproof – Mount the IP65 rated camera outdoors using the integrated wall bracket, or use indoors as a freestanding IP camera. Features 10m night vision for clear images both day and night.

Works with Amazon Alexa..
