Well-designed and manufactured. Easy installation with great instructions. Ease of use gets high praise, as does the video and audio quality.
Cord is too long and ends in a plug, requiring an outlet. The upper temperature limit of the camera is 104 degrees, making it an iffy buy for some areas. Must purchase a subscription service to get full use of the camera.
Person alerts allow you to ignore pets and only get alerted when people move into frame. Works great as a nursery monitor, with the added benefit that you can talk through the camera. Quality at an affordable price.
Subscription service will add to the price on an ongoing basis. Doesn't work well for DSL subscribers due to the slow upload rate. Some buyers note problems with WiFi connectivity.
