Digoo has released a new camera that makes home security unbelievably affordable. With WiFi and an app you can set up in a few mins and can even share access to others. We took the Digoo for a test to show you how easy it is to setup and what you really get from this bargain camera.

It Allows You to save recordings to your phone

If you install a memory card, all videos are automatically saved on it’s micro SD card. But there is always a chance someone could take the camera with the card and all your records are gone. With the DG-M1Q, you can download the camera’s recording to your smartphone and ensure any valuable footage is saved to your pocket.

Auto/Manually Operated Infrared Light

The camera automatically activates its night vision when it gets dark, in some lighting conditions you might prefer to manually adjust this to suit the conditions, most cameras we have tried before do not offer a manual selection of night/day vision.

The DigooEye App

using the M1Q Digoo and app

The DigooEye app is the official app for controlling the MQ1 and is available directly on the Google Play Store.

Setup is straightforward, and the fully English app guides you through connecting to your WiFi.

Digoo has stepped away from their previous app and has loaded more features and a nicer looking UI.

The manual mentions PC control but we could not find any Digoo PC software, based on its ports and protocols it is compatible with a variety of other security systems including Onvif and can be easily integrated with other cameras in a network. Our test was more simple and

Access levels

The Digoo app gives you multiple logins, and you can have an admin and guest accounts, guests can view but can not modify or edit any footage or settings.

Intercom

With a speaker and microphone built in, you can communicate with your phone to the camera and also listen in to anything happening in the area.

Overall Impression

It’s strikingly small, we were expecting something larger, you can comfortably fit this on any wall. The round hat shape means you can also cut a circle and mount it through a door, wall or ceiling. Just hung on the wall for an easy fix. It is not vandal proof. Instead, it is ideal for indoors and keeping an eye on your home.

The 960p video of the Digoo is crisp for a video stream and more than enough detail for standard security requirements.

The DG-M1Q brings video streaming to your home. Although it is not the highest spec out there, it is by far the cheapest. By offering a robust app and extra connection options, it is a complete package for securing your home.

If you can’t already live stream your home to your phone, welcome to 2017 where you can get a Digoo for just a few dollars.

Right so roughly would use 1000mAh of a powerbank every hour, so you can estimate how much battery you would need for a certain runtime.

So far this camera only works with one Android device in my possession as the Digooeye app software only appears to be available for some models of Android phones. It loads and works with my Galaxy S5 NEO but my Galaxy Tab A and older Galaxy phones aren’t even offered the digooeye app from the google play store . It was a bugger to get working even with the Neo and, although the quality is pretty damn good, I wouldn’t recommend it . The instructions are pitiful and in horrendous Chinglish. Why some far eastern companies can sort this sort… Read more »

How to make the video recording start when motion is detected? None of the settings have made this happen.

Same here, I have not been able to get it to record when motion is detected.

I have given up on the phone app and now use MotionEye installed on my Raspberry Pi. Very configurable with features including the ability to mask areas where motion is not detected.

How to get connected via mobile internet 4G? It works for me only on Wi-Fi.

SunnyBG
SunnyBG

What happens when you try to access it over 4G? Does it try to connect or just says offline?

philmik
philmik

It says loading – than Network connection timed out. But arming the alarm does make a sound over 4G. I also found out today that any Wi-Fi connects well, not only the same network Wi-Fi. Please tell me if anyone knows how to fix that. Thanks!

SunnyBG

That does sound strange and more something in your phone or connection stoping it. Possible, but I have not heard before, your phone provider is blocking this service/port. Do you have another device on another network you could try? More likely is check the internal settings on your phone, the firewall, antivirus or data save function could be blocking the App when you are on 3G to save data.
