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
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 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.
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.
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.
