What is the HeimLife PC app?
These days, you can’t be too careful about home security. Whether you’re concerned about burglars or porch pirates, a good security camera can help protect you. Now, we’ve all seen internet stories where a thief was caught because of a home security camera. It gives you that warm sense of justice being served. But you know what’s even better than catching a thief? Scaring them off to begin with. At the sign of a camera, most thieves are likely to seek out an easier target. Protecting your home doesn’t get much simpler than that.
The HeimLife for PC APP can be easily installed on your mobile device by scanning the QR code from the included user manual. In order to pair the camera with the APP, you need to go to the “add device” section and select “Battery camera”, then follow the step-by-step instruction. In the end, if the camera reaches the internet, the status LED will change from flashing red to solid blue. The whole setup takes no more than a few minutes. In case you entered a wrong WiFi password or you just want to connect to another wireless router, you need to reset the camera.
Adopting easy to use interface can be the perfect choice for those who are unfamiliar with surveillance systems. Besides basic configurations and live-view, the APP allows you to access captured videos (by date/time) and to export them to your phone if needed. Another cool function of the APP is the push-to-talk intercom feature. The APP also shows popups when alarms (motions) encounter.
What does it Offer?
On the main screen, there are displayed the following useful information: WiFi strength, battery level, and video transmission bit rate.
The HeimLife for Windows app also comes with access to HeimVision’s cloud service. The HMD2 comes with a free subscription for the first month, after which you’ll be charged a small monthly fee. Given the lack of other storage options, this is more or less mandatory. However, you get unlimited storage, which means you won’t need to worry about running out of space.
The HeimLife for PC app also offers optional push alerts. These will allow you to instantly review footage, so you’ll never get caught by surprise. You can turn alerts on and off, which is a useful feature if you’re in a meeting or watching a movie. Through the app, you can also view your camera’s feed at any time. As we mentioned, 24/7 recording isn’t an option. But it’s nice to be able to pull up your camera feed as desired.
Live view and recording quality
Without a web-interface, the only way to access the live-video is through the above-mentioned APP. You have two quality options: “HD” and “SD”. As you can guess, HD will offer better image quality, but it is also more bandwidth-consuming.
The live-view quality is very good, you can do even digital zoom in a specific zone. The camera’s microphone is always on, so you can hear what’s happening in the monitored area. Exported videos from the camera to phone have a resolution of 1920×1080 with 9~15/fps.

- You will need to install the BlueStacks emulator on your PC.

- Open the PlayStore app from the home screen of the emulator.
- You will need to log in using your Google ID to access the PlayStore app features.
- Search for the HeimLife app and click on the install button.
You can also use the HeimLife app on your smartphone as well.
How long does the battery last?
It depends on how many times the camera is activated. The camera can hold a charge for up to 4 months if it detects movements of the human body 10 times per day.
You also get a free trial of the 7-day cloud subscription plan.
After this, it costs from $2.99 a month for 3-day history, rising to $150 a year for 30-day storage. There’s also a Season subscription plan, which I assume is quarterly to match with the weather seasons.
Where is the Footage Recorded?
The footage is recorded to both the cloud and microSD card (if inserted). SD footage is found in the History section of the app; cloud in the Cloud section.
How to record the Video in HeimLife for PC app?
Want to download video? Well, you have to play the clip, hit the Record button and then record the section you want. As the Record button isn’t available from the Alert view, you first have to tap Cloud or History and then hit Record. The result is that it’s practically impossible to hit Record at the beginning of the clip that you want to save, compounded by the fact that the camera can be slow to wake, missing the start of any action.
