Great Video Quality! Easy to use iPhone app. Worth the money.
Great quality video, even when using wireless setup. iPhone app works well. The built in speaker is not that loud at all. It does have an external audio jack, so I connected a pair of old computer speakers to it, and the sound is great. I use this to monitor my dog, listen in, and talk to her remotely with the app. Hasn’t failed yet. Haven’t had to restart it.
This is the best camera I have tried for monitoring my 97-year-old mother during the night
For my purposes, this camera is wonderful. I have this camera in my 97 year-old mother’s bedroom so that I can monitor her after she goes to bed. I was using a 720P single band camera for this purpose, but decided to upgrade to this one for the dual band and a better picture. I had no problem at all getting it set up using WIFI. This took all of about 5 minutes. The only problem that I had was positioning it so that I could get a good view of my mother’s bed without other furniture blocking the view. I decided to put it on top of a high bookcase, but the camera would not point down enough. It can pan up and even go all the way to the back, but it would point only straight forward and not down.
Excellent baby monitor!!!
After soooo much research for a proper baby camera, I was guided to look into the security sector for something really suitable. Thanks to watching many blogs and reading tech articles, this camera stood out to my husband’s and my needs. We wanted to be able to access this camera through wifi, from anywhere in the world, have great night-vision, and be able to hear and talk to our baby if needed. This camera has it all! First of all, the image is great and the connection for us/the smooth live feed is just perfect. It is basically in “real-time.” Please don’t blame the camera is the wifi or connection is not so good where you are. We have a relatively strong wifi signal and have had no complaints. At times, it did stagger, like during a thunderstorm here, but otherwise, it has been very smooth in STANDARD mode. HD mode does lag for us. But we found the quality in standard to already be very sufficient!
I have thirteen Amcrest Cameras
I now have thirteen Amcrest Cameras around and in my house. I don’t recall the exact number, but there is a burglary every few minutes in the United States. This doesn’t include the people who roam around at night breaking into cars and looking for open doors. Then there are the guys who will follow your wife home from the grocery store and grab their purse as they exit their vehicle in your garage. If your wife is elderly, and gets pushed down, a fractured hip is possible. I found that if you “sign up” on Amcrest’s web page, for notifications, they have a sale almost every week. This can lead you to having thirteen cameras ! You’ll need an SD card, wifi, and either a smart phone or a computer, for the Camera. They record motion on the SD card. Being new at this, I had set up problems. Amercrest has a help line that can fix anything you mess up. Attached is a “screen shot” off my phone of four cameras. You can watch them “live” anytime you want. I’m not sure how that photo will turn out.
An all-around good camera for security with a few notable exceptions
So, as the title suggest, these are good cameras but there are a few things which can be a detractor for some…but I will go ahead and give these cameras a 5-Star rating. Think of it as grading on a curve though as I have tested a large number of cameras and NVR systems.
It is easy to set up and it has some advanced features …
This camera is just what I was looking for. It is easy to set up and it has some advanced features which are really not advertised well. I bought the camera hoping it had ONVIF which was not listed as a feature anywhere expect on the box. I was able to connect the camera to my DVR and record, but only video. In order to listen to the audio from the camera or use the mic, I have to use the app for the camera, which is fine by me. The picture comes in very clear even when connecting over the internet. The audio usually lags or does not come through. I have attempted to get my kids attention by talking through it and the audio has only come through about half of the time.
like a wide angle
This cam works ok. The 90 degree field of view lens distorts the perspective, seems less than normal focal, like a wide angle. The operation literature is lacking. Sets up quickly for android cell phone app, but setting up the free cloud storage, and setting up an online account is time consuming and doesn’t work well, haven’t had success yet after a week of emails and chats. The warranty is not specified in the written literature, have to log on to an online account that I have yet to successfully be allowed to do. Requires 3 separate user names and 3 passwords for cam, online account, cloud storage. Could be a great product with a little more support.
