Inside or Outside?

AlfredCam is designed for indoor surveillance and excels in the home. But it can just as easily monitor small businesses and offices thanks to reliable infrared night vision and super responsive motion detection.

AlfredCam Plus introduces the possibility for outdoor security with an IP65 ingress protection rating. This makes it well suited for hanging out under the eaves of your home, or on the porch as an alternate doorbell camera, where you can chat to delivery drivers using Two-Way Talk.

Desktop viewing is also a breeze when using the camera inside, and with the all new Pet Detection mode, Premium users will love using Plus as a Pet Cam inside the house. 

Small changes, big results

While advanced motion detection and weather resistance creates more usage possibilities than ever—from farms and construction sites to porch and driveway surveillance—AlfredCam Plus introduces a number of smaller changes that make the user experience even better.

AlfredCam Plus is powered by USB C, the new industry standard. The power cable itself is double the length of the original AlfredCam’s, making it much easier to place the camera far from the power source, including outside.

The security camera base is magnetized for even greater flexibility. If your landlord practically faints at the sight of a drill or screws in the wall, you can easily mount the device by simply ‘sticking’ it to a metallic surface without leaving holes in its wake. Plastic ties are included to attach the device to trickier surfaces, like a pole or chair legs.

Basic or Pro?

Three years of hard work went into conceptualizing and producing AlfredCam because the team had a specific goal in mind: to create the perfect all-rounder indoor security camera. 

AlfredCam does everything you need an indoor security camera to do, and it does it well. The sharp image quality and 130° field of view mean you’ll never miss a beat and can eliminate blindspots with ease. 

AlfredCam Plus is the most advanced offering from AlfredCamera so far. It introduces all new motion detection features for Premium users, including pet detection and vehicle detection

This gives you better car security than ever, while pet owners will appreciate more intelligent notifications about their furry friends (or the thief in the night that’s messing with your backyard). 

Budget Friendly, or Budget Friendlier?

At just $39.99, AlfredCam raised the bar for what’s possible in home security on a budget. Designed for existing Alfred users and newcomers alike, AlfredCam evolves your DIY home security system without breaking the bank.

All AlfredCam Plus security cameras ship with a 64 GB microSD card inside, so you can start recording continuously right out of the box.
