Prone To Spontaneously disconnect From Your WiFi Network
Reviewed in the United States on September 2, 2019
I made the mistake of buying nine of these. The "Quick Start" instructions were poorly written; nonetheless, with much aggravation I was able to get the first of nine cameras connected to my WiFi network. Each additional camera connection become a little bit easier as I progressed through the learning curve.
The biggest negative about this camera is that they will, on occasion, spontaneously disconnect from your network. You might suspect that, in my case, this was because of a weak signal, but my house, thanks to 5 installed network range extenders, has a maximum network signal in every possible location. With a spontaneous disconnect, you then have to go through a pain-in-the-keester procedure to get the camera reconnected, and this becomes a mega-pain-in-the-keester when you have a camera installed in a location that requires a ladder to access the camera, as every re-connection I've had to do, entailed pushing in the camera reset button, located on the back side of the camera, as well as having the camera read a QR code off of your phone.
Then there is the issue of they don't have any desktop software with which you can monitor your cameras. In order to do that you have to install a sluggish smart phone emulator on your desktop computer and run their habitually crashing app through that.
Another downside is not being able to install the 64 GB mini SD memory cards in my cameras, since they never sent them to me as promised if I wrote a review on their product.
In the final analysis, you do well not to duplicate my mistake of purchasing this product and look for a competitor product with no complaints about the poorly written instructions, no problem with spontaneous disconnections, desktop software that can be used along with your smart phone to monitor your cameras and customer support that keeps their word.
