The cameras and the monthly subscription plans are less expensive than Nest cam, and otherwise features seem similar. So in general I'm happy with the cam and the app. But there needs to be a way to filter the list of video clips, for instance so that I can see only clips where a person was detected. I also would like the app to show a snapshot from the video when I'm notified on my Apple watch; I know this is doable since the Amazon shopping app shows product photos on delivery notifications on the watch.
-With how crazy the world is and is going to continue to be, 2 step authentication should be a given to login to this app given the sensitive nature of what it can see/hear. -Would like to be able to see a time log within the video or show the recorded time when you download the video onto your device.
***I would give it 4-5 stars if price is under $60 and multi-user support is added*** Biggest flaw - does not support multi-user setup. If you want another user to have access to the camera, they must use your ID/Password...not ideal for most users. Com’on Amazon... Picture quality is pretty good. Video recording is okay but lags/skips time to time (even with strong wifi connection). Like the features included even without the subscription, especially the ability to manually turn off the night vision (must have if camera is set to look out a window). Wish Amazon would allow longer clips of videos similar to their Blink products (but Blink does not have auto on/off or “home/away” feature...)
Bought two cameras months ago. Ever since then, the taping on one camera has always worked but not on the second camera. Hit or miss. Support is a bad joke. I have more expensive Nests. They work all the time.
At first this camera was excellent. Lately it seems to consistently have trouble connecting. We use it for our kids room, but I can never see a live view because it just buffers while trying to connect, then eventually closes down. It’s very frustrating. So at this point I can only watch in playback mode but rarely in live mode. I have an iPhone XR so not sure if it’s an issue with iPhone or not. My husband doesn’t seem to have this issue on his galaxy phone.
Worked great till this past update. Now live video will not load while on cellular. Works fine if the phones are on WiFi.
New update doesn’t jive with ios fix it!!
Be very careful if your password is hacked or you forget to log out of a device ... Your account info stays locked into that app and will continue to work even if you change your password!! Very very unsafe !!
Even with home/away off, cloud cam is now consistently the number one consumer of energy on my phone.
We can no longer hear through the app. I tried clicking to unmute... nothing happened. Restarted phone and app, nothing happened. Defeats the purpose of using it as a baby monitor...
