Top critical review
December 20, 2018
I purchased this inconspicuous camera to keep an eye on my house's back door during the day. My intent was to see my back door while I was at work if my door sensor indicated it was open. When I tested this camera device, I found it produced very clear videos and has a sensitive mic for audio recording. It seemed well constructed, however, the software for the camera was horrible. I downloaded the manufacturer's app onto my Android smartphone to configure the wifi connection to my home network. The app was very basic and showed very laggy live videos even while connected to my fast home network. As I was using the app, I would get pop up messages written in Asian characters (Chinese?). I'd also get very annoying notifications popping up every time it detected motion (which I couldn't dismiss). So, the camera might have been ok, but the software app to use it was abysmal. I ended up returning it for a full refund. After more research, I decided to go with the Wyze camera instead.
