Cameras work ok overall for the price. I contacted support due to the scheduling function was not working properly. I was told this option was still in the testing stage. That was disappointing.
Would give negative five stars if I could
Please fix the issue.
I would give this app 5 stars except for the inability to set a time of day where the camera automatically switches to night mode, then another time where it automatically switches to day mode. The only way to do it now is by light sensitivity which can be affected due to cars driving by at night or bright street lights. I’d like it to force the camera into night mode at a certain time of the evening and then force it back into day mode at a certain time in the morning.
1st year all good... since then, every other week my cameras are offline using the app... i can still view my cameras with my monitor, but not on my mobile app... I found nothing fixes it... just gotta wait a few days then they come back. 🤷🏾♂️
The app disconnects and works when it wants too. Which I had become dependent on when leaving my home. Since the app is unreliable i wouldn’t advised anyone to purchase this or meShare because they are the same company or something. Neither are operating properly.
I can’t set up these stupid worthless paper weights. And my wifi is pretty good. WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!!!!!
These cameras seem great at first. They’re cheap and ok quality. Easy set up and installation. The picture quality is decent and motion detection is extremely sensitive. (Sometimes other times it won’t record anything) Night vision is ok. But for what you pay for them it’s to be expected. I never went into this thinking I was getting the highest quality. What I did not expect is the absolute robbery of their “cloud” subscription. I should’ve researched more and kept looking for a different camera. First you’re roped in with the free trail. Take in mind my cameras are strictly WiFi with no internal storage or ability to connect to anything but through the app and cloud. They lag & the app crashes ALOT. The motion detection will pick up a bug butt flying by but other times won’t get an entire car pulling up or person at my door. W/o cloud it’s supposed to record 15 second increments of motion. It’s on average 4-12 seconds. The cloud subscription is expensive when you think this is just for my camera to be a camera and record. The lowest one is around $50 a year for EACH device. That is $350 for me roughly $30 a month just to have the cameras almost work at full capacity. Like I said that’s Zmodo’s cheapest cloud package. I could get an actual home security system that continually monitors my home and notifies the police if there ever is a problem for a few dollars more than that a month. If you want something for show or just something to be able to LOOK at your home, this is it. I will say the live view on the app is handy. But definitely don’t count on these cameras to matter when you really need them. I’ve had them for almost a year and odds are they won’t catch anything. Unless you pay a ridiculous amount just to be able to see after it already happens. If you also maybe want a baby monitor this would be great! But do not get these as a cheaper home monitoring option. It’s not. You could spend a little more money and get something far better. I was never expecting great but having to pay $350 a year just to be able to record is ridiculous. I didn’t research enough and didn’t want to spend the extra $$ & time installing wired cameras. Or spend the extra $$ on something like adt. Lol I would’ve been better off doing so because their monthly subscription is maybe $5-10 more (with way more options and security) than what Zmodo charges just to do what cameras do... record.
The app used to be great. After the last apple update the app crashes frequently and when you go to talk through the camera you have to mute and then unmute to hear someone talk back. Really annoying and frustrating. I was hoping that the developers were going to update the app, however it’s been a month and still nothing.
Fantastic apps love it because I can like with my amazon Alexa!!! Awesome !!! 😎😎😎
