XiaoMo relies on a very compact and slim case. The camera is held in a kind of inverted square shape with rounded corners. This integrated stand allows for a wall mounting, on the other hand, you can adjust the camera on this right freely at an angle and align optimally.

Of course, the case is made of white/black plastic. Qualitatively, to be honest, I would not say that the XiaoMo AI looks particularly high quality. You get with the AI a solid standard quality in terms of feel and appearance.

Due to the small dimensions, it should not be a big problem to mount the camera somewhere hidden.

In addition to the camera lens and various IR LEDs, there is a micro USB port as well as a microSD card reader on the action camera for 2018.

As you can see, this camera XiaoMo AI in our analisis is not designed for an active lifestyle, as it is not very convenient and there are no special fasteners. So, I want to say that this is still a camera for security and tracking your house with smart protection. But as an option, you can use it in rare cases as an action camera.

Yes, the XiaoMo AI is powered by a USB charger, which I find very convenient! For example, if you need a longer cable, it would be easy to replace it.

Unfortunately, XiaoMo does not come with a memory card, but memory cards are not that expensive, so no end of the world.

XiaoMo AI Review: Hot Camera with Recognizing Faces - Low Price 2018

The XiaoMo AI can according to the manufacturer accept up to 32GB memory cards.

XiaoMo AI: Setup and Installation

Unfortunately, I have to say that the setup of the XiaoMo AI with me was anything but smooth and easy.

XiaoMo AI Review: Hot Camera with Recognizing Faces - Low Price 2018

But let’s start at the beginning. You have to download the “MoCamera” app and create an account there, which was so easy.

In the app, you must now add the camera. For this there are various options, recommended is “AirLink”. Connects the camera to the power, whereupon it starts to beep softly. Put the smartphone next to it and the camera should be connected to your network.

Well tried with the iPhone X an alternative setup method. With this, a QR code is generated, which one must hold in front of the camera. In this QR code are the WLAN data, which the camera should read.

XiaoMo AI: Application

The MoCamera app is, to be honest, not beauty. However functional, you can not say anything negative.

XiaoMo AI Review: Hot Camera with Recognizing Faces - Low Price 2018

The app is clear and understandable. Even technically less experienced users should get along well with the MoCamera app.

On the start page, we have an overview of all connected security cameras. These are listed here with a small preview, as well as quick access options for the alarm history, the alarm and the settings.

I liked very much the new function of recognizing faces, it really works well. In no matter the time of day and the lighting, it works well.

Also, you can use special gestures to take pictures for yourself, except that the camera has Smart Beauty Shot, so your photos and photos will be excellent.

In the settings you can change your WLAN data, passwords, recording settings and so on.

Shots do not leave the camera in general but always load on the microSD memory card.

You can also use the two-way communication via the live view. This works fine, but the speaker in the XiaoMo AI is rather sad. Nothing out of the ordinary for compact surveillance cameras.

XiaoMo AI: Security Part

Of course, you do not want to watch the live view of a surveillance camera all day long. What about alarms and recording videos?

XiaoMo AI Review: Hot Camera with Recognizing Faces - Low Price 2018

Basically, you can record videos constantly or according to a schedule.

An alarm can be triggered by a movement. Here you have various options. On the one hand, you can determine how strong a movement must be, so that it triggers the alarm, on the other hand, you can also turn on a person recognition.

If this is active, the camera only triggers when it recognizes a human being. So jump your cat in front of the camera, nothing happens, as far as the theory goes.

How well does this person recognition work? Generally good, but this depends a bit on the positioning of the camera. The camera seems to pay attention to the classic silhouette of a human, with two legs and two arms.

This, of course, works most reliably when the surveillance camera is positioned at chest or head height and looks into the room.

XiaoMo AI Review: Hot Camera with Recognizing Faces - Low Price 2018

If the positioning was too slanted, recognition would be slightly worse. Here you just have to play around with something that works better for you, or if you have no pets.

The latter is not overly loud, so I would not do that. A burglar gets hereby that he was recorded. So he could destroy the camera including microSD memory card.

XiaoMo AI Review: Hot Camera with Recognizing Faces - Low Price 2018

Recordings are only saved on the memory card! There is no cloud record! Super from a privacy point of view, but will, of course, destroy the memory card has been unlucky.

Everything always has its advantages and disadvantages.

XiaoMo AI: Picture Quality

The XiaoMo AI in the review has a 13 megapixel camera sensor that can record videos in 720P.

XiaoMo AI Review: Hot Camera with Recognizing Faces - Low Price 2018

Also, the camera XiaoMo can rotate 360 degrees, so that any object can be enabled at any angle.

I would describe the image quality of the camera as adequate. Videos are not overly sharp and detailed, but for a normal indoor surveillance camera, the picture quality is quite adequate.

On the usual distance of 6-8 meters, people and faces are easy to recognize.

XiaoMo AI Review: Hot Camera with Recognizing Faces - Low Price 2018

The IR LEDs are powerful enough to illuminate a normal room well. Of course, if you want to monitor a warehouse, it will be tight, but that’s not what the XiaoMo AI is for.

For classic home use, the image quality offered is absolutely fine!

XiaoMo AI: Conclusions and Reviews

Apart from the minor issues I had with the setup, the XiaoMo AI in this review is a solid home security camera or just action camera in 2018.

XiaoMo AI Review: Hot Camera with Recognizing Faces - Low Price 2018

This applies to both the hardware and the software.

The security camera is pleasantly small and compact so that it does not look out of place in a living room. The MoCamera app is not the most visually beautiful, but is functionally impeccable and easy to use, even for users who are not so familiar with such things.

We also liked the new technology recognizing faces, and it really is the main camera chip, as for the current trend in the device market in 2018.

This is also an advantage over many “more elaborate” surveillance cameras, which can only send shots to the cloud and then even demand money from you.

Aside from the cost of a memory card and power, there are no follow-up costs to the XiaoMo AI.

In short, if you are looking for a solid standard home security camera, then you can safely hit the XiaoMo AI but also as a camera for active sports.

XiaoMo AI: Price and Where to buy cheaper?

At this time, you can already buy a new camera XiaoMo AI at a good and attractive price for only $87.83 with coupon: GBCE. So, the price and quality of the camera are good and it really has an advantage over other cameras in 2018.
