Review : Convenient, but short battery life and limited placement options impact usefulness.
There’s not really an easier, better solution out there but there are some limitations.
First, you cannot shoot through glass. So if you want to place it indoors, looking into your yard, you are out of luck. I’m not just talking about reflections in the glass but the motion sensor doesn’t work through glass.
Second, the motion sensor is based on infrared changes not on actual motion. So a change in temperature can set it off. That’s fine, but it means if you use it in your garage or sunroom, places without HVAC, you will get false alarms, even on the lowest setting.
Third, and most important, while being battery operated is pretty cool, the batteries in my setup last only a few months, not a year or more. I bought three cameras and one ran out at about the six week mark, and another at about the 8 week mark. At that rate, I’m just going to use rechargable batteries (which is what they should come with) and replace them monthly until I can wire up…
