The Mi Home Security Camera Basic also comes with a talkback feature which improves the overall voice calling experience.

The security camera market in India is a growing industry, exponentially we may add. One of the reasons behind this is a rise in hostile elements and crime in the country which are affecting families and businesses alike. While there are a number of options when one goes on a lookout for a security camera, a new entrant in this space is Xiaomi, which aims to provide ease of use with its Mi Home Security Camera 360-degree.
Xiaomi’s security camera is a part of their smart home product lineup. It’s no secret that apart from creating some great smartphones, Xiaomi has a wide range of ecosystem and smart home products that are really affordable and gets the job done.
The camera also does not sport wall mounting options, which means you can either leave it on a table top or on a higher shelf and angle it according to your suited view. The Mi Home Security Camera Basic 1080p camera is all white in colour and does not come in any other colour, though one would prefer a black variant to make it more hidden or discreet. Xiaomi prefers this colour to match its entire range of lifestyle products that also wins an award for design.
