Top critical review

I've installed it for approximately a week now. For the low price, I was initially impressed overall. Super easy to set up. Just download the Yi Home phone app. I'm using the cameras to monitor my home. The 720P, angle of view, motion, nightvision, etc exceeded my expectations and I haven't yet subscribed to the cloud or use the micro sd. I was even going to get more cameras and wished I went with the 4 pack. But after a week, the alerts for the motion detection have been erratic. The alerts will notify from a minute to an hour, alert without any video or the video will show before the alert. I'm starting to think the alert reliability is crucial if someone is breaking into your home. Possibly a software upgrade might fix the issue. I have one camera facing out the bay window at the front door. The IR reflects off the glass and caused false positives. Easy fix by turning off the IR. It's still pretty good in low light. I do like the "Live" view. This should work great as a baby monitor and a lot cheaper and more secure. And you can download the app for your laptop also. The tilting stand/base can be designed better, like to pivot/swivel. There are some aftermarket accessories available.
