Wouldn't recommend for baby monitor (probably)
Reviewed in the United States on April 25, 2019
I bought this as a secondary baby monitor to limit carrying around our clunky old one.
•The camera quality is fantastic
•Better night vision than our current baby monitor
•You can easily change the position of the camera
•MOST of the time, the camera feed opens promptly
• The two-way audio
•The price is reasonable, but I'm not very knowledgeable about these devices.
•The setup was a little annoying and I had to do it 3 or 4 times the first use
•The connection will occasionally cut out and you have to manually refresh it. This can be scary if you were busy doing something with it in the background.
•The zoom is awful, it might as well not be a feature.
•The app is kind of creepy. If you don't allow it certain permissions like storage and location, it won't let you open the settings at all.
•There is no background mode. It would be great if you could have the audio open in the background, since it has insane battery usage anyway.
Update: After a few more months, I don't think I would recommend this camera unless you're using it as a backup camera, or if you have a seperate device to keep it running all the time. The camera cuts out randomly, even with a stable internet connection, and sometimes takes literally an hour to start working again. After the most recent update, it refused to connect for an entire day. This device has a lot of potential but the bugs are a major disappointment. If you have an extra phone you can use specifically for this camera, it might be perfect for you.
