This camera is really nothing more than a “cool” baby monitor. It scares me that people actually think that this should be used in place of an actual security system of sorts. Being an IT business owner, and seeing the number of people who want to install cheap substitutes in place of a real security system, is a huge concern. The clients I have come across who are looking for security cameras, I have them spend the money on the real deal and offers far more. You get what you pay for.
With all of that said, I did buy this camera to test out and see if it’s something I would offer my clients as a “monitor” of sorts and NOT used as a security camera. This camera was good for a while, but not long after getting it, the app gets buggy (sometimes it connects, sometimes it doesn’t time will freeze for a couple seconds, sometimes more), the recording feature sucks…at best, and the cameras infrared switches on and off no matter if it’s day time or night time. One of the big limitations is being able to watch from a computer using other software. The only way I have been able to run it from the computer is running the app in BlueStacks. I don’t care to have my phone or tablet on constantly to watch the kids.
When I first received the camera, it was kind of like having a pretty new toy that showed up in a pretty little box, but that feeling slowly but surely faded as I kept using the camera. I really wanted to like it, I did, but I cannot see using this camera for much more than a baby monitor. Matter of fact, that’s kind of what I was using it for, for a couple months, and it no longer can do that so I took it down and it now sits in our “junk drawer”. Maybe I can use it for some kind of different application, but time will tell. I’am also curious why it seems there is no real means of leaving reviews on this product. Is that intentional?
