Havit have released their Wi-Fi Wireless Video Monitoring Camera-namely the HV-N601, although currently the N601 is only available in America. However Havit still wanted to ship a sample over to our reviewing team here in the UK to show that Havit will go the extra mile ( 4242 miles so maybe a lot more than 1 mile ) to make sure their product’s are seen, reviewed and tested.

The HV-N601 is not just any monitoring camera as the Havit HV-N601 has some pretty nifty features like; the built-in mic, speaker, magnetic with a metal mounting disk and simple to use software ( My SmartCam ) which can be used anywhere-along with the option of up to five people able to access and view the live camera.

When we opened the box/parcel to reveal a well presented product, which gives us our first look at the Havit HV-N601 Wi Fi Motion Camera, The packaging is simple yet stylish whilst the logos are not smothering the package and the product is on full show.

We did notice an error on the WiFi Wireless Transmission information with it being  upside down.



Looks And Software

This monitoring camera / IP cam is a joy to look at, with it’s smooth tear drop design the Havit HV-N601 has no problem blending in to any room. In addition the flexibility to adjust the camera in to the position you need with it’s ball joint has come in very handy when wishing to monitor different areas.

The software utilised is an application from Google Play entitled “My SmartCam” which was very easy to install on to the mobile phone and also the tablet we used. You may watch live stream for free however should one wish to record what the camera is seeing then you can pay a subscription to save all the data direct to ( this is optional ) cloud storage. Lastly there is a microSD card slot which will take up to a 32 gigabyte card.

Qiwo Smartlink Technology Ltd who are the developer’s of the My SmartCam application also have another programme called Rcam which also works with the Havit HV-N601 ( the two seem to be the same )

Now as we have got another wireless monitoring camera here which costs three times as much to buy we though lets see the quality, albeit the ugly gentlemen in the photos.

The screenshot on the left is using the Havit HV-N601 which retails at $54.99 in the US (around £35.25 in the UK) [Havit did let our team know that the HV-N601 will be on sale in the UK soon] whilst the screenshot on the right is from another company, and their wireless WiFi camera retails at £145 in the UK or $226 in the US.

This actually amused us a great deal seeing how the quality differs, what we found funny was you think ‘ah that is triple the price and it is HD so it must be good’ as you can see some companies do make top quality products while keeping the costs down, while other’s just use their name to bump prices up.



We can not find a bad word to say about the HV-N601 it really is amazing and,the packaging simple and stylish, the picture quality is nice and clear, microphone picks up the sound very well and the speaker is clear enough to actually talk to people in the same room as the HV-N601 camera (although we find ourself shouting down the phone for no reason ), Havit products may not be as well known as competitors but they sure know how to manufacture a great wireless WiFi Camera, amongst their many other products.


  • Price
  • Stunning Design.
  • Easy installation.
  • Video Quality
  • Stylish Packaging

Cons: Not in the UK yet (As ‘The Sisters of Mercy’ once sang’ We want More  ) 

Scoring for the HAVIT® HV-N601 HD 1280 x 720p Pro Wi-Fi Wireless Video Monitoring Camera would give it a 9.8 and without a doubt deserves our Gold award,




On a side note with the more expensive WiFi Cam-  ( we wanted to write a compare list against the other camera we have, due to problems with the other brand’s wireless camera that could not connect via WiFi we could only test video quality before having to send it back.
