Amcrest ASH21 Camera Review


Back when the pandemic started, I upgraded one of my webcams to one made by Amcrest. I was very satisifed with it. Since then, I’ve been given the opportunity to test products from Amcrest, the most recent being the ASH21 WiFi Camera. This little monitor is a great device to have around. Let’s take a brief look at the specs, pros, and cons of the ASH21.


  • Resolution - 1080p (1920x1080)
  • Viewing Angle 93° Wide-View
  • Night Vision
  • Special Modes
    • Privacy
    • Baby Monitor
  • Storage Options
    • Cloud ($$)
    • MicroSD (up to 256GB, sold separately)


  • Easy to set up. Using the Android app, I had the camera up and running in a matter of minutes with no issues
  • Small and unobtrusive. This can be placed almost anywhere and not be in the way
  • Good quality video and image capture


  • App sometimes didn’t connect immediately when on the same WiFi network
  • Pan/Tilt controls can react a little slowly
  • Audio is decent, but not great. Then again, this isn’t a high-level video camera used for production


I’d definitely add more of these to my home. It’s a great way of monitoring at a low cost. For me, I sometimes use it in my laundry room, where the slop sink tends to overflow during a wash (that’s a whole other issue).
