Review : Not ready for real-world use.
Bought this because it was highly recommend on The Sweet Home. I was looking for a battery-powered camera fora my front door that was impossible to use with a wired device. And while I had none of the issues others had with setting it up, I found that it was not useful for my needs, and the marketing descriptions hides (or at least don’t make clear) many of the limitations.
The biggest issues I found are these:
* It’s overly sensitive to movement and shadows. Even at its lowest sensitivity, a passing shadow at the edge of its view, or a waving plant tendril triggered a recording (and a notification if that’s set up, which gets old fast). Today alone, with it armed from 7am to 9pm, I have 116 notifications (and it’s only 7pm as I write this!).
* All those notifications would seem like they’d be helpful, but they are sent only after recording done rather than at initial movement. That’s not useful. I want to be notified as soon as the camera detects…
