ZOSI Home Security Cameras Review
We researched dozens of ZOSI cameras to bring you our top picks from this company.
Whether you want a single wire-free camera to watch the nursery or a suite of high-tech PoE cameras to survey your whole property, ZOSI has a zoo of home security cameras.
While browsing the selection, we counted over 50 unique cameras and security kits with features like smart night vision, AI human detection, and automatic pan, tilt, and zoom (more on those later).
Cameras and kits range from $40 to over $, matching the price range of big brands like Ring, Google Nest, and Arlo. While your ZOSI camera is a standalone device, it comes with traditional security system features like sirens and motion detection.

ZOSI has quite the collection of cameras, so it was hard to narrow down just a handful to compare. So we lined up the wire-free and Wi-Fi cameras to keep things simple.
Overall, we recommend the C Wi-Fi camera or the C wire-free. Both cost under $50 and work inside or outside. But the C is a PTZ camera, giving you a wider range of motion because it can swivel and move to follow action. The C is a battery-powered camera, allowing you to place it anywhere in or out of the house.
Each of these ZOSI cameras have a weatherproof rating ranging between IP65 and IP67 (with IP65 being the standard for most cameras). These numbers refer to how well the camera is built to resist dust and water. Generally, the higher the number, the tougher the camera. Conveniently enough, the cheapest camera on the list is also the toughest against the elements.
We’ve also featured the C security camera kit. The price may seem astronomical compared to these other star cameras, but that’s because the kit comes with four cameras and an NVR to record footage. The C isn’t the only camera kit from ZOSI, either. You can find dozens of other kits with four or more cameras to cover all your property.
ZOSI has a range of cameras to choose from. We found several selections within each of the categories of wire-free cameras, Wi-Fi cameras, PoE cameras, and DVR cameras. Each type of camera has its own set of pros and cons. But we like seeing such a buffet of options available.
Wi-Fi cameras work much like their battery-powered brothers but need a cable to stay charged. This generally keeps the price lower than other cameras and allows you to record continuously.
ZOSI has six Wi-Fi cameras available, three of which are compatible with an NVR set for continuous recording on multiple cameras to get each corner of your house.
ZOSI’s Power over ethernet (PoE) cameras require less wiring and come in kits with multiple cameras. These devices only need one cable that doubles as a power source and connection to the internet to get up and running.
While DVRs are pretty old school, ZOSI has a handful of security camera kits with new school features like 4K resolution.
ZOSI DVR systems require a little more know-how to operate and use, making them better for businesses and commercial surveillance. But if you need four or more cameras running continuously, ZOSI provides an affordable option.
Wire-free means you can place this camera anywhere—inside or out. If you have limited outlets outside your house or worried about drilling holes in your rental, this could be a good option. ZOSI sells single cameras for under $60 or sets of multiple cameras for around $
ZOSI C1 Wire-free: Best pet or nanny cam
The ZOSI C1 Wire-Free security camera comes with p HD streaming, motion detection, and two-way audio. The 2MP lens produces a clear picture, but its 90° field of vision is narrower than many IP cameras we’ve encountered. But that’s just a small drawback.
Like the other wire-free devices, this ZOSI camera is battery powered and weatherproof, so you can place it anywhere inside or outdoors. The battery is said to last up to three months. But, the battery itself isn’t removable, so you’d need to take down the IP camera when the time comes to charge it.
It comes with two mounting methods: a sticky magnetic base (great for renters) or a three-screw security bracket (requires drilling). Both methods work indoors and outdoors, but we love an option that doesn’t require any drilling.
C1 also comes with human-specific motion detection, thanks to the passive infrared sensor (PIR) built in. The camera’s software has built-in AI to distinguish between humans and other objects to cut down on false alarms.
ZOSI C Wire-free: Best porch cam
The ZOSI C wire-free camera’s antenna and screw-in mount make it a better choice for outdoor surveillance far away from your router. It has a removable battery for recharging. The company claims charges last up to six months. It’s also compatible with a solar panel to keep it at %.
It has a lot in common with the C1, like its p video quality, two-way talk, built-in light and siren, motion detection, and weatherproofing. The C ZOSI camera also has the same AI human detection as the C1.
The C has a small SD card slot inside the body of the camera. Local storage like this allows you quick access to any footage the camera captures. You can use SD cards up to GB. Once the memory reaches its limit, you can either upload your videos to your computer or have the camera overwrite old clips.
ZOSI C Wire-free security kit: Best for big properties
If you have a lot of space and not a lot of outlets, the C wire-free security kit can keep eyes on all the corners of your property. This security kit comes with four ZOSI C cameras and a four-channel NVR to record footage.
With a lower streaming quality, limited night vision, and narrow field of vision, this ZOSI camera system offers more quantity than quality. But there are a few redeeming qualities to the C
Like the C, they have a battery life that lasts up to six months and can connect to solar panels, making them a good fit for outdoor structures like sheds, posts, and barns.
All four cameras have antennas to catch your internet signal as well. ZOSI claims they can catch a signal between to 1, feet away. They also have a built-in light and siren to scare off intruders or trespassers.
ZOSI has two Wi-Fi cameras that connect to the internet like the wire-free cameras. Both the C and C have features in common with their cordless companions. All of these ZOSI cameras feature p (except the C) video streaming, two-way talk, AI human detection, motion detection zones, and weatherproofing.
The big difference between the following cameras and those above is a power cable. Setup through the CloudEdge app is the same for all of ZOSI’s cameras, but the Wi-Fi series requires a power cable to keep running. This limits where you can place your camera, but it will stay charged at all times (as long as it’s plugged in).
ZOSI C Wi-Fi camera: Best field of vision
The C Wi-Fi camera is the only pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) camera in ZOSI’s Wi-Fi camera collection. The camera has a ° horizontal and 90° vertical field of view that can adjust to catch any blindspots at your front door or backyard.
In addition to its wide field of view, the C has a couple talents that caught our attention. We’ve seen PTZ cameras before, but not many with an auto-cruise feature like this one.
Through the app, you can plan a path for your camera to “patrol.” Send its gaze to the front door then back to the sidewalk, from one side of the yard to the other, or wherever you want to keep a constant lookout.
The C ZOSI camera also has different night-vision modes. In a single camera, you can access basic black and white and infrared night vision. Most cameras default to one type of night vision, leaving low light video to simple black and white or the occasional color night vision.
The feature that stood out was its smart night vision that switches to color when the IP camera detects people in low light. If a person walks by the camera, you can identify their face and the color of their clothes easily.
ZOSI C Wi-Fi camera: Best outdoor camera
The C Wi-Fi camera is featured among our best outdoor cameras. For just under $30, this IP camera delivers a lot of great features for half the price of its counterparts.
It has the same night vision modes as the C but is stationary, so you’ll miss out on the auto-cruise feature. The night vision sees up to 80 feet in the dark and feet in ambient light.
The C also has a higher weatherproofing rating than the other ZOSI cameras we came across. With an IP67 rating, it can withstand more dust and water than most cameras. If you have an unsheltered area you want to watch, this is a great choice.
Wi-Fi security camera kits
While the cameras above don’t come in multiples, you can purchase Wi-Fi camera kits from ZOSI. We found the C, W4, and ZSWNVK-J in kits with four to eight cameras and a compatible NVR.
All four cameras have similar features like antennas that extend the Wi-Fi signal up to feet indoors and up to 3, feet in open spaces. They also come equipped with AI human detection, lights and sirens, and H+ compression to improve streaming.
ZOSI Smart App
Like most IP cameras, ZOSI’s Wi-Fi and wire-free cameras use an app for basic controls, setting adjustments, and live feed viewing. The ZOSI Smart App also works with Android and iOS devices.
The app is free and allows up to five users on one account, so your family, house sitters, or trusted neighbors can check in whenever you need them to.
Both the Power over Ethernet (PoE) and digital video recorder (DVR) cameras come in kits with multiple cameras. These cameras work inside and outside, so whether you want to watch the nursery or the backyard, you can stream multiple points of view at once.
ZOSI has four PoE camera kits available, each with four cameras and an NVR to store video footage. Cameras like these tend to be more expensive, but they use high-speed compression to cut down on buffering and lag times when you watch footage.
Between the four camera systems, there are two with stationary bullet cameras and two with PTZ cameras.
What is PoE?
Power over Ethernet (PoE) cameras use a single cable as their power source and connection to the internet.
This means you have fewer cables to connect, but it also tends to raise the price.
ZOSI has 12 unique DVR kits to choose from. DVRs are a more old-school method for CCTV surveillance, but the cameras included are pretty new school. Two of the ZOSI DVR kits come with 4K video and foot infrared vision.
ZOSI DVR camera systems are a good fit for small businesses or commercial properties but not as practical for homeowners (unless it’s a large home). A DVR system uses a physical hard drive inside to store footage from multiple cameras. Each camera creates a channel, allowing you to switch between views and see different parts of your property at once.
DVR and NVR systems allow for easy playback on any of the cameras you set up. For example, if you see something suspicious, you can watch the recording from the backyard and compare it to the front yard to see the whole story with a timestamp.
DVR vs. NVR
Both devices are ways to save recordings from multiple cameras, but DVRs use analog cameras and coaxial cables while NVRs use wireless signals or Ethernet cables.
ZOSI customer service and support
ZOSI has a few on-site options for customers with questions. On the website, you can find downloadable manuals and docs, video tutorials for installation and troubleshooting, and an FAQ page and blog.
As far as contacting customer service directly, the company’s phone lines are open from am to UTC+8. This can be confusing for US customers, but this just means you can call the company between a.m. and a.m. CST.
Luckily, setup for the wire-free and Wi-Fi cameras are straightforward. The app walks you through everything you need to know. But, if you’re opting for a security kit with an NVR, DVR, or PoE cameras, it’s good to know there’s help available for your questions.
If you’re on the hunt for multiple home security cameras, ZOSI has a variety to choose from with prices ranging from $50 to over $ If you have structures on your property like sheds or barns, ZOSI’s kits are a great deal. Those with smaller homes or apartments may be better off with some of ZOSI’s single-camera deals.
We like that you can opt for an NVR or DVR kit if you want to store your video footage or switch between cameras. But features like these are best for larger homes, small businesses, or the tech-savvy folks out there.
ZOSI may have 30+ cameras to offer, but that didn’t scare us from comparing them all. We read through specs, details, and reviews of each camera and kit to report on the cream of the crop.
We also learned more about DVRs and NVRs to bring you details about some of the features that set ZOSI apart from more popular brands.
Learn more about our methodology and how we conduct reviews like this one if you want more details about our process.
Yes. All of ZOSI’s cameras have two-way audio. This means you can hear and speak to anyone on the other side of the lens. Most of the cameras come with sirens as well, which can tip you off to intruders and scare them away at the same time.
Yes. The ZOSI cameras we came across had at least an IP rating of IP So, while we don’t recommend dunking them in the swimming pool, they can handle wet weather like rain, snow, and fog.
According to ZOSI, there are a few ways to watch your camera footage from your computer. You can connect the camera directly to the computer, through your router, an Ethernet cable, or a CCTV system.
While it’s not a requirement, adding sensors or alarms included with a security system can give you more information over what’s happening at your home. If your security camera is your home’s eyes, think of the security system as your home’s ears.

out of 5
Good system for the money!
I have the 8 camera system, 7 work perfectly,1 has a very slight flutter. In fairness, the camera cable may have been slightly damaged during installation. My 3 issues with the system is the app is very slow to update to real time, the camera cables are not up protected, so you must run them though conduit where they are exposed to direct sunlight. Lastly, I want to add an 2 way intercom. I e-mailed the company regarding this but never received a response. Conversely, when I was setting the system up, I had a difficult time understanding the instructions provided with the system, so I emailed the company and received clear instructions very expeditiously! Very fast and answered all my installation questions! I don’t know why I never heard from them concerning the intercom! All in all, I’m happy with the purchase! I’ve had it up and running for 3 months, and have had no issues!
scooter,,,,Very good. We are willing to accept your suggestion. If you have better Suggestions in the future, open 'Zosi Smart' -- 'Me' -- 'Support' -- 'Feedback'. We will regularly take stock of your questions or Suggestions. Thank you very much for your comments.
Web site or app
My only problem is connecting with ZosiSmart . Sometimes it goes straight through when on the road and other times you have to attempt 5,6,7 times before it links up. I would blame it on my phone but I’m running an up to date apple 8; so phones not the issue. If they tweaked the system a touch or two I would recommend it to anyone for home or business use.I bought my system to keep an eye on my mother whom has Alzheimer’s and or dementia and a history of falling. As she is 86 it kinda racks my nerves worrying about her as I’m trying to link up but once linked up the picture quality is great and I can see what I need to see to stop me from worrying and have a few minutes to myself to clear my mind. Other than the sign on or linking up problem I think it’s a totally awesome system.
More options from the app
Love the quality of the pictures! I wish the app had as many options as the Zosi program itself. We had to go buy a tv so we had a monitor to set it up. Would have been nice to have been able to do everything remotely from a phone or computer. Also wish there was a way to remotely re-start the system. We were away and it went down. Which means no cameras were recording when we needed them the most. We also keep losing signal to a camera. It doesn’t make sense. Is there a way to use a camera to make another cameras signal stronger?
Keep the network in good shape and you can control your camera remotely from anywhere. Thank you very much for your comments. Be safe and jave a great day!

Buy On Amazon
Two of my neighbours homes have just recently been broken into (2 months ago), and so I felt it was time to go out and get myself a security camera just in case.
Little did I know what I was getting myself into when shopping for a security camera!
In this Zosi wireless CCTV camera review, I will do my best to bring you up to speed about how it took me a long time to find the right camera, with everything that goes along with it, and not spend a ton of money.
Basically, what I found was that with the Zosi CCTV camera, is that you are getting a great deal overall due to the fact that most security cameras that offer quality like this come at a much higher price.
Its a 2 mp system vs a Zosi 5 mp system. The difference between the two should be slight, though.
This Zosi camera is reasonably priced. In my humble opinion, I would say that you cant really go wrong by purchasing this security camera.
Of course, having a camera that records a grainy image, or gets damaged by weather, makes spending any amount of money a waste, but Im just saying that with this camera I was actually surprised at how well it records, considering what I spent on the camera itself.
Wider Field Of View
When comparing this Zosi surveillance camera to my neighbours camera, it was clear that the field of view on my Zosi, in addition to being surprisingly clear, was also quite wide.
This wide view security camera is exactly what I needed.
With its mm lens, this Zosi Security Camera captures everything very well and maybe is even a little bit too wide for some people, but personally I had no problem with the view it took.
This was my first security camera, so take that into consideration in this Zosi camera review. Ive since bought several others and this is still the one I use most frequently, as I like the way it captures things.
One thing that should be touched upon is the ability to view the outside of your home with an app.
Having a DVR is a great way to capture video for times you need to have video for the police. Its not the only way to view the action.
As far as a Zosi app review, most people understand that they can view their system from their smartphones. What you might not know is that the system will also email you when it detects motion.
Itll snap a picture and send that picture to your email. Youll then decide whether you want to power up the app and view the situation in real time.
So, when people ask, “Are Zosi cameras good?” Id have to say a big YES to that. “Is Zosi a good brand?” Thats another question with the same answer.
I was truly impressed.
Maybe “accurate” isnt the right word to use, but I just mean to say that the color looks fairly real.
I know that a lot of camera-snobs out there, will tell me that saying this Zosi camera has great color isnt true, and I suppose when compared to some devices in p vs p (other than security cameras) the color could be better.
I think, if something did happen and this camera caught someone on a recording, I could easily hand this footage over to the police and theyd know exactly who they were looking for.
Thats pretty great, considering one of my neighbors managed to catch the guy on his camera, and the police couldnt do anything with his poor quality footage.
Outdoor Night Vision Security Camera
If youre on the market for a good surveillance system, make sure that you buy one that has decent night vision footage.
The way this Zosi security camera is designed, with its 42 infrared LEDs, it is capable of capturing a clear picture for up to feet at night.
It also comes with AGC (Auto-Gain Control) and BLC (Back Light Compensation), to make its image quality that much better.
I dont really understand how this Zosi DVR video surveillance system came so cheap with all the functionality it has, but it is a great deal and Im not complaining.
Weatherproof, Vandal Proof, Kid Proof
This camera has been up at my house for about one and a half months, and during that time, you know what they say, “no news is good news”.
There was another break-in down the street – this time a car parked on my neighbours driveway, but they seem to have avoided my house, so I dont know whether to credit the camera or luck.
Also, I live in Portland, and it rained for a week straight since Ive installed the camera, and that didnt affect it at all.
One time a neighbourhood kid saw my camera, and decided to throw a baseball *at* it. Thanks Joey!
Anyway, it made a bit of a ding in the camera, but on the other hand, the camera still worked fine afterward. It even caught the image of the little beggar walking onto my driveway, and doing the deed with a smirk on his face.
I would show you the picture, but I think his parents might take me to court just for that!
Sturdy camera in any case!
Everything You Need All In One Box?
I wasnt sure at first, but my suspicions were confirmed as soon as I bought the camera.
I would need more than just what came in the box, plus a DVR, which I knew was going to cost me a fair amount of money.
I went with the VideoSecu 8 Channel DVR. Its a solid machine, but Ill have to save that for another Zosi DVR review. I even bought it online and it saved me some time.
What I wasnt sure about was the power source, which didnt come with it. I picked up a power supply as well (again, I went with Videosecu and you canbuy it here on Amazon for a good price).
In the end, getting the whole system set up took longer than I thought, but I really should have expected as much, since I was going from having no home security system, to actually having one! (Thats no small accomplishment!)
However, if you want to get everything you need with just one package, and have your entire home surveilled with Zosi technology, you should go with the Zosi Security System which includes 8 Zosi cameras and everything else you need to completely secure your home.
Buying a home security camera is definitely anticlimactic when they work well, because I really have nothing much to say about it, other than it seems to be doing its job.
On the nights when Im extra paranoid, thinking I heard something, I have actually gone and watched the footage just to see, and the only thing Ive seen is a dog, and a raccoon one time.
So nothing exciting, but I guess, thats the only proof I need that the Zosi security camera is doing its job.
It makes me want to get a job as a mall security guard. I can imagine how boring that job might be on a good night, when theres no action.
I knew that the entire Zosi Outdoor Security Camera system was going to set me back financially, (and it did cost a fair bit to take care of everything), but now I must say, I feel a lot more secure than I did before. You cant put a price on peace of mind!

Connect Security Cameras to TV: Easiest Way to Go
Want to connect security cameras to TV and see live view directly from there?
There are several ways you may try to connect IP camera to smart TV as listed in our previous blog:
How to View & Stream IP Cameras on TV
But if you are not prepared for a deep research on how to connect security cameras to TV and want to get it done with minimum effort, here is a shortcut for you.
Note: This guide applies to IP cameras, which is the mainstream in video surveillance these days with much better clarity and much more smart features.
Easiest Way to Connect Security Camera to TV
Set up a security camera system and then you can connect security cameras to TV in a breeze!
Specifically, only 4 steps are needed to connect cameras to TV:
Step 1. Connect CCTV cameras to the NVR with Ethernet Cat 5/6 cables.
Step 2. Connect the security camera NVR to TV with the HDMI cable.
Step 3. Power the NVR with the power adapter.
Step 4. Turn on the TV, and the live view will be shown on the screen.
There is NO need to download an app, NO need to connect to a router, NO configuration or other things. And all accessories needed to connect security cameras to TV are included in the NVR system package.
If you could hook up a security camera to TV with simple wiring, NO connection failure risks and NO extra cost, why bother to look for extra troubles?
So get an NVR system directly is definitely the easiest way to connect security camera to TV!
Connect Security Camera to TV with NVR: Top 5 Benefits
There are top 5 reasons you should choose an NVR system for security camera to TV connection.
#1. Easy Wiring with NO Connection Failure
To connect security cameras to TV, youll need the help of either physical HDML cable connection or certain software which streams the camera feeds from elsewhere (PC or phone) to TV.
After trying and testing all the possible methods suggested online by either users or professionals in the field, weve found 4 feasible ways to connect security camera to TV directly, and concluded that the NVR system is definitely the easiest and most reliable way to go!
During our test, many other theoretically workable solutions may still fail to connect security cameras to TV due to the various settings of TV (LG, Samsung, or Apple TV) and camera models. SO its very likely that you may just get lost during the security camera to TV connection process.
By contrast, youll never run into such trouble with NVR system to connect security cameras to TV.
#2. Large Storage Space & 24/7 Continuous Recording
The large storage space is the biggest bonus of connecting a security camera system to TV. You dont need to worry about the footages got overwritten soon.
After connecting security camera to TV with NVR, you can not only watch the live but also save the moments that matter. For example, the R# can record non-stop for weeks at 4MP super HD resolution. And you are free to choose lower resolution to record longer.
#3. Work Without Network (Without Connecting to Router)
After you connect the security cameras to TV and NVR, the camera is ready to stream live, record and save to the network video recorder (NVR) – without router network!
So you can avoid the IP camera configuration, a big headache for some, and get real protection with HD security camera recordings on hand.
#4. More Stable Signal
Have tried to connect security cameras to TV but got a No Signal warning in the end?
This mostly happens when you connect security cameras to TV via the 3rd party software.
Connecting CCTV camera to TV with NVR is nothing like that. Once you power all the counterparts up with right and easy wire connection, the live stream will appear on the screen with no signal loss.
#5. Easy Management
Its easier to manipulate security cameras within a complete system. For example, after connecting security cameras to TV (and PC or other monitor), you could upgrade all IP cameras at a time easily via the NVR operation system.
Alternative Ways to Connect Security Camera to TV
If you want to hook up your security camera without NVR anyway, you have the following options:
#1. Use IP-camera-to-HDMI converter/decoder
#2. Set up DLNA server on PC and stream IP videos on TV
#3. Use Google Chromecast or Apple TV
#4. Use streaming apps on smart TVs
Find more specific steps on how to connect a security camera to TV and VCR here: How to View & Stream IP Cameras on TV.
Also mind risks of connecting CCTV cameras to TV without NVR you may have:
#1. Time Wasted
You will have to spend a lot of time working out a feasible way to go in your specific situation, and that might brings more trouble in the practice if you are not tech-savvy.
Not exhaustive, but weve tried almost all the solutions advised on the Internet, and the result shows only several of them could successfully connect security cameras to TV without major issues. (Weve tested various security camera brands and different TV models.)
#2. Unstable Signal
One user in the forum complained that he only got a no signal message after hooking up his wireless security camera to TV, even though he bought the TV that is claimed to be compatible with his camera.
#3. No Technical Support
With a security camera system, you can connect their support team whenever there is a problem and get detailed guidance to connect security cameras to TV. So it may come as a potential loss if you decide to run some 3rd party software for it.

Connecting security camera to TV is super easy with R#: Connect the NVR to your TV with the provided HDMI cable and the live view will appear on your TV. (Make sure all the system counterparts are powered up and connected correctly.)

Option 2: Wireless Security Camera System – Connect Cameras to TV Wirelessly
Want to connect cameras to TV wirelessly?
Just set up a wireless system with easy-to-use WiFi cameras and an NVR. Or grab a wireless NVR security camera system directly, like the best-selling R#.
Side note: Connecting cameras to TV wirelessly mean no wire at all. You still need an HDMI cable to connect the storage box (the NVR) to your TV monitor.
The good news is that the ZOSI NVR works with both ZOSI wireless and PoE cameras, so you may mix and match the different security camera types.
Want to go wireless but there is no Internet connection?
The wireless security camera system will also work!
The wireless cameras within the security system do not need WiFi to connect to and communicate with each other. They will build a private subnet between them to transmit data. Just power the NVR and cameras, and they will start to work.
