    Zetta ZN62


    If you want to monitor your home, visitors, or family members, you'll need a spy camera gadget. There are lots of clever ways you can spy on someone, and the best spy cameras are the devices that don't look like a spy camera at all. Hidden in plain sight, these amazing cameras can take still photos or video to help you keep an eye on your favorite people or important valuables. Some people use these spy devices as "nanny cams", while others simply use them for the fun of it.The Z62 Intelligent Security Camcorder from Zetta Systems may not jump out initially as a typical spy camera. It doesn't use a disguise, nor does it have any functions other than being a video camera. However, its incredibly small size lets you hide this nanny spy camera anywhere, whether it's under an open book or in your entertainment center.I wanted to know if it would work well enough to protect my car and home.


    Packaging & Contents

    The Z62 arrived inside a very small blue/white box with a product picture at the front, the company logo and the name of the unit.

    You can see the main product features and its system requirements at the rear.

    Contact and warranty information is placed on the right side right above the product barcode.

    4 possible usages for the Z62 are placed on the left side.

    Once you open the box you will see the bundle contents.

    The bundle is not really impressive so aside the Z62 you will get a mini-USB cable, AC power charger and the user's manual in two languages.

    The other side of the camcorder has the data transfer/charging mini USB port to connect to your PC, MAC, or the power adapter.Near it is the charge indicator.

    At the bottom we see a large sticker with the IOS/Android icons.

    The bottom has reset button.It requires a small straight tool to be inserted into it to activate the feature.

    ZN62 acts as a hot spot, smartphone needs to enable Wi-Fi to directly connected to ZN62.

    The ZN62 acts as an access point (also referred to as a hot spot) in which a smartphone wirelessly connects directly to the camera when you choose Attez from the phone?s list of available Wi-Fi networks. Live View and camera control is enabled from the mobile device. In this mode, Internet access is disabled.

    There are two multi-colored light emitting diodes on the camera. The one next to the USB port is called the Charging LED. The one next to the power button is referred to as the Status LED. Here?s what their colors mean:
    Power On: Press and hold the power button until the green LED lights up. Power Off: Press and hold the power button until the LED shuts off.
    Connecting to a computer: Make sure that the ZN62 is powered off before connecting it to your PC?s USB port. An orange LED will light up next to the camera?s USB port and the green LED will light up next to the camera?s power button. A directory will appear on your computer screen listing the video and picture files on the camera?s removable disk.
    Operating in AP mode: If the Orange LED is lit, the camera is waiting for the smartphone connection. If the green LED is flashing, the camera has successfully connected to the smartphone.
    Operating in router mode: If the camera is successfully connected to the router, a green LED will be flashing. If the camera?s Live View is being accessed from a mobile device, an orange LED will be flashing.

    Go to Android Play Store / Apple App Store, search for ?Attez?, download and install the app ?Attez?.

    The Attez app on your phone or tablet affords great flexibility as you choose the Live View on one of up to four ZN62 cameras you?ve named.

    On the gear icon,the setting menu will be shown.

    You can set the camera to record upon detection of motion,or sound, as well as continuously or at a specific time. All videos are time-stamped for better record keeping.

    One really nice thing about this camera and its app is that it?s very responsive. We tested the video feed while our phones were on Wi-Fi and LTE and the feed loaded very quickly.


    With its battery, this camera can record for 8 hours continuously, and it can go much longer when you use motion recording mode.Once I had everything connected, I pulled up the video feed. I was incredibly impressed with the video feed. Even though it's only 720P HD video, the signal is crisp and clear.Thanks to the HD quality streaming and recording, it is easier to identify what's happening within the scene. Faces can also be easily identified assuming you have a good angle and they are not too far from the camera.

    The sound quality is okay and the long lasting battery is brilliant.You can get more than eight hours recording (at the highest settings) before the 32gb card (not overwriting) is full and there's still life in the battery.
