Horrible camera system, horrible app, list just goes on… guys the app freezes all the time, the camera glitches half the time it’s on (no matter how great your Wi-Fi is) the app sometimes doesn’t even open lol the camera also has a horrible view on it.
It’s unreliable and frequently misses security events , the app crashes a lot and you can’t live stream video without using the internet, they’ve disabled local streaming It only catches 1 out of 10 motion events , it’s not good for security
Lately after firmware automatically was updated to 6.1.6 the recording option was taken away so the camera only captures single picture. If someone stands on the side and rings the bell the camera won’t show who’s there!
It seems good
Great so far
Updated 6/8/2021 In my last review which is below wish Zmodo camera have options in the app to turn the camera ON and OFF but I don’t know when it added now I can do it in the settings to turn the camera ON and OFF that is wonderful and thanks a lot especially when I stay home I don’t like camera watching me so this problem solved. The other problem I have not sometimes but most of the time happen to me when I set up the camera to see the entrance door the camera doesn’t stay that position and always camera turning by itself and stops opposite or different directions its so crazy…! So Zmodo developer please add an option in the app to lock the camera position so that way the camera stays that particular position. I hope Zmodo developers you can fix this problem with my idea by adding lock the camera position or by adding your ideas something else. I just want to fix thats all…!!! Keep it up…! <><><><><><><><> Hi, using Zmodo camera almost two years someday works some days crazy! So today I like to give a suggestion if Zmodo developer listens me. My big problem in the app because of my fingers are a little big when I try to press the live play button always pressing the play back button, so why not move the live play button to the middle because needs enough space between the two play buttons. Also why not make them bigger buttons??? The other problem I have I set it up the camera a fixed area but a lot of times the camera moves 360 degrees by itself and stops out of sight, so my suggestion in the settings please add an option to lock the camera position that can help ppl. The other suggestion I know from my research other camera brands have this option “on and off” button in the app so Zmodo should have the same options “on and off” button in the app. When I stay home I always cover the camera by piece of paper or a small towel because I don’t like camera sees me when I’m staying home, so please add “on and off” button. Hope these suggestion helpful and If Zmodo developer accepts my suggestion and update the app I’ll come back and write a review again, if not I’ll be buying / changing another camera brands. I have two Zmodo camera and if not solved these problems this may be my last with Zmodo camera. Take care...!!!
My cameras go offline more then they are online. It is so frustrating. I have had the cameras for over 2 years, 10 of them! I already cancelled the subscription to the cloud for them and I am about to go with different cameras all together. I am sick of support telling you to take them down and reconnect them. I should not have to do this. I should be able to trust the cameras while I’m away! I’m over it
If you just got a camera, I’d just return it now if you can. Unable to share access, it’s unsettling to have sent a link to share and the recipient never receives the link. Like then who got the invite?…. It’s near impossible to setup. Despite crisp live video, the way it records and saves footage is practically unusable. Interface isn’t user friendly.
1. Motion alerts absolutely captures nothing! Two years I have these installed outside sounding my house it gives me pictures of something happen to my residence but whenever I have a visitor mailman’s here every day, snow season people remove my driver way snow, summer these people treat my grass and cut my grass however all these events these camera didn’t capture at all, what am I supposed to expect for the purpose of security what am I paying for??!!It gives me around 15-20 pics a day showing events with absolutely nothing but my yard view on the pics, once in a while it captures a blurry someone’s one leg or a corner of someone’s shoulder but mostly I captures nothing but just my yard views. 2. Four of these eight cameras stopped working after two years for no reason. 3. These devices are horrible connection with internet. I spent 200$ on those cameras and a 800$ to install them, I’m planning to look other companies to reinstall different brand cameras, someone have better experience or recommendations?
Lately I’ve had videos land in Events dated for October 2021, it’s May 2021. Also when I’ve added another camera, a couple of times, my account gets hit for all the cameras and then refunded all but for the addition. Really not happy about that.
