Xiaomi announces its first 8MP indoor security camera: Features 4K HDR footage, local AI & HyperOS


Xiaomi has unveiled its latest home security offering, the Xiaomi Smart Camera C700 in the Chinese market. This flagship camera boasts a number of impressive features, including 4K resolution, local AI processing, and a wide range of connectivity options. Let’s check out its key specs.

Xiaomi Smart Camera C700 Specifications:

Xiaomi Smart Camera C700 is the first indoor smart camera from Xiaomi to boast an 8MP sensor. The camera captures 4K HDR ultra-clear footage at 3840×2160 resolution, delivering sharper and more detailed visuals for enhanced security and monitoring. The camera features a professional-grade lens with 5 large-aperture optical lenses for exceptional image clarity, even in low-light environments.

The camera includes a dual-motor pan/tilt functionality that allows it to cover wide angles—360° horizontally and 110° vertically. This enables the camera to monitor a larger area and eliminates blind spots in surveillance coverage. Users can also physically shield the lens for privacy, a feature that supports both automated and manual control.

The C700 shines in low-light conditions thanks to its impressive night vision. Ten invisible 940nm infrared LEDs provide clear images up to 10 meters away without disturbing the environment. This is achieved through innovative non-red exposure technology.

The local AI capabilities of the Xiaomi Smart Camera C700 add a layer of advanced functionality. The AI supports multiple detection features such as baby crying detection, pet dynamic tracking, human form detection, and significant anomaly alerts like glass breaking. These features are processed locally, ensuring quick and accurate notifications without the need to store data on the cloud, enhancing privacy and security.

The security camera can also recognize gestures, such as an “OK” sign, to initiate actions like making voice calls. This is combined with two-way audio communication facilitated by an intelligent noise-reduction microphone and a large-diameter BOX speaker.

The C700 boasts strong connectivity with dual-band Wi-Fi 6 for reliable and speedy data transfer. It seamlessly integrates with other Xiaomi smart home devices through Xiaomi HyperOS Connect, enabling smart automations like lights turning on upon motion detection or the camera adjusting its view when the door unlocks.

For robust security, the C700 encrypts data transmission and utilizes a Mi Home Security Chip for top-notch data protection. It offers flexible storage options with microSD card (up to 256GB) and NAS compatibility, ensuring you can archive extensive video footage.

Pricing and Availability

The Xiaomi Smart Camera C700 is priced at 349 yuan ($49) and is available for purchase on e-commerce platforms like JD.com. It will go on sale starting at 10 a.m. on May 10th.
