Insert the MicroSD card into the card slot with the contact side facing down. Note: To install or remove the MicroSD card, you need to cut off the power of the camera before operation. Use a MicroSD card produced by a reliable manufacturer (the maximum supported capacity is 32GB). It is recommended that the reading and writing speed of the MicroSD card should not be lower than UI / Class 10.

My Verdict
Mi Smart Camera PTZ Pro is an amazing surveillance camera out there in the market. I have tried most of the available surveillance cameras. Mi Smart Camera PTZ Pro is just perfect, with the upgraded 3MP camera with 2K high definition resolution to present a more natural vibrant image. Not less the 360 degree full angle vision, dual motor design, F1.4 large aperture greatly increases the light input volume, which can capture most of the image details especially when we need to zoom into details. Furthermore the enhanced infrared night vision, built-in 940nm infrared fill light and dual microphone for two-way audio offers HD call experience, either to chase the prowler or simply communicate with the person on the other end. The infrared night vision camera can automatically switch to night vision mode at night according to the degree of surrounding light changes with the built-in 6 infrared night vision lights and can reach a distance of 9 meters, and you can shoot clearly in the dark.
