Imou Ranger iq – AI Powered 1080p pan Tilt home safety cam

Here’s a look at the new Imou Ranger IQ, plus a discount code for 30% off for Automated home Readers.

Čo je to?

Imou is the consumer wing of Dahua, a huge Chinese maker of CCTV and surveillance equipment. They describe their new Ranger iq as “the world’s first man-made Internet of things (AIoT) home safety camera”.

The 3.6mm lens has an 87° horizontal field of view and its eye-catching dark orb design (approx 9cms x 9cms x 10cms), allows this indoor cam to rotate 355 degrees and tilt 90 degrees for total coverage, getting rid of any blind spots that even the widest angle cameras can’t overcome.


The unit is powered by micro USB and comes with a mains adaptor with a usefully long cable. As normal these days, once plugged in setup is completed through a mobile app. The Imou Life app is available for iOS and Android.

When trying to find a location for the camera, it’s worth noting that it cannot tilt below the horizontal if mounted in standard table top configuration. So if you want to be able to view much immediately below the unit then you are going to need to use the included wall / ceiling mount instead.


The Sony Starlight sensor supplies a 1080p image and allows the cam to cling to colour pictures in low-light conditions, before automatically switching to black and white when things get really dark. There’s support for H.264 and the newer H.265 codec that indicates less space is required for recordings.

Theres a privacy mask setting, rolling the lens into the bottom of the enclosure, blocking its view completely.

The built in speaker and microphone allow the unit to be used for 2-way chat between someone in the room and the user on the app.

A built in abnormal sound detector is used to notify you of events like smoke alarms for example (check out the video below).

As well as the onboard 802.11b/g/n flavoured Wi-Fi there’s the option to use the 100Mbps Ethernet port for hardwired reliability. Power consumption is rated at <9.5W Umela inteligencia The real smarts for this cam comes with its onboard AI human detection software which automatically recognises human targets and tracks them by moving the lens automatically to follow them around the room. And that ability to distinguish between humans and family pets or spiders for example, is created to save you from needless false alarms and notifications. We found it works well, supplied you don’t get too close to the lens or step past it too quickly. The sound of the motors moving the lens is audible but not loud by any means, and it’s pretty cool to see it pickup people and follow them. Storing Recordings The Ranger iq requires a Cloud connection to work and there’s a subscription service for storing your recordings online. You can however choose to store your recordings locally on an SD card (256GB maximum). It’s great to see that the last 2 cameras we’ve examined now both have local storage options, it seems makers are finally listening. While there’s no way to view the cam in a browser you can send recordings to an Onvif compatible NAS etc (also compatible with ONVIF PTZ service controls). Integrácia This cam is compatible with home assistants like Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Imou also tell us they are launching a range of compatible ‘Airfly’ motion detectors, sirens and door sensors later this year too. Airfly is Imou’s proprietary 433/868/915MHz protocol and the Ranger iq has a built-in Airfly gateway to connect to these additional sensors. Rozsudok Rating: 4 out of 5. The Imou Ranger iq is an interesting indoor camera. With its AI capabilities, subscription complimentary local recording, WiFi / Ethernet options and Pan-Tilt coverage, it seems good value at the price, especially with our time limited offer below..
