    Doesn't do what says on the tin

    • Written by Dan O from Bristol

    Not happy with purchase at all.
    1. Connectivity - mounted outside, double glazed windows separates camera from Airport clearly visible from camera location, 8 m away. 2.4 and 5GHz tested, still having poor connection alerts from time to time.
    2. Image quality - even on 1080p picture lacks details and crispness, it's hard to recognise face of a person moving 5m away from camera
    3. HomeKit - I gave up in week 1 after care lost connectivity to HomeKit 3 times and the only solution was to remove it, reset and set up from scratch.
    4. Storage - unable to choose storage for video footage, all stored in Cloud using lots of bandwidth around the clock.
    5. Alerts - tested free and paid subscription (free for a week with fresh install) - zoning doesn't work, people recognition misses people or alerts and records when nothing happens or out of zones activity only. Camera records even when out of zone activity detected, waste of time and bandwidth. Absolutely unreliable as a security camera. Monthly service expensive, more than for Netflix subscription, not worth it.
    6. Indoor usage - not going to use it indoor as it records whenever it wants, not happy to send all the footage from my living room to some company's server.
    7. Overall build quality - camera mount is rather a toy quality, intruder wanting to disable it just needs to pull it harder.
    8. Camera has a mic and speaker build in. Voice level too low to be used when a car passes on the road or chatting people walking by. On top of that you receive alert a few second after camera notifies person, takes a moment to start app and load video. When you ready to chat a courier with your delivery has just left. On top of that there is a 1-2s delay seriously damaging chances to communicate with anybody.
