Worth a Try if you have a NetGear Router


This is a good starter camera to see if it works for your needs. I purchased the just one camera to start out, and I plan to get more once all my tests are complete. I have not tried outside yet, but I believe it would perform just as well. Although I...

Does the trick for the majority


For the technically inclined like myself, there are better options out there that allow you to configure all the settings and details to your liking with higher quality cameras for a similar price. For the majority of users though -- the people who...

Setting up this product is very easy and only takes minutes ; Plug base station into your home network and power it on ; Put batteries into camera (this is tricky) and power it on ; Press the Sync button on top of the base station to sync cameras ; Set...

Battery installation is tricky. It's a combination of pushing hard on a button on the underside and yanking on a plastic cover. Speaking of batteries, the device uses some odd CR123 lithium ones so you'll want to buy extras specifically for this ;...

Acceptable solution if easy & quick setup is your primary motivation..


When I first discovered this system, I was at first very excited at all the possibilities, but then rather disappointed once reality hit home. My initial thought was "hey, great baby monitor! As soon as baby (or grandbaby, in this case) stirs, I get an...

Very quick and easy to setup, took less than 30 minutes to place the camera, connect the base unit and access & configure the website account ; Quick Install instructions are clear, concise, accurate and very well-illustrated ; Attractively designed;...

No audio! In fairness, this is only marketed as a video system, but how much more functional would this device be with a simple audio feed along with the live video? Video only monitors a specific area, but with audio you can practically listen to an...

Marketing change needed


I'm really left with mixed feelings with this setup. On the one hand, getting up and running was very effortless and you quite literally spend more time deciding on where to place the camera(s). On the other, these cameras are just about completely...

Very easy to get setup and running - it took me literally 3 minutes and that was with a software/firmware upgrade ; Camera(s) are wireless and small and can be placed virtually anywhere with included mounts ; Camera settings can be adjusted via web or...

Can't be accessed locally so internet is required. Bad image quality, especially in low light. Shouldn't/can't be used for any night time monitoring ; Webpage uses flash to connect to camera, I don't own any apple products but I hear they don't play...

Simple Camera Monitoring System


Cat 5 Ethernet cable instead Cat 5e Also features a USB port but includes no information as to its purpose.

Very easy to setup and sync cameras ; Resolution up to 640 x 480 ; Camera requires no wires for power or for data ; Comes with mounting screws ; Includes two magnetic mounting units for the camera ; The mounting units can be hung via screws or stuck on...

Nonstandard CR123A batteries would’ve preferred a 9V or AA’s or C battery ; Very poor in low light areas due to it lacking IR technology ; Frame rates are very low. At 640 x 480 it’s very jittery and lagging and freezes occasionally and if something...

Fantastic solution for casual security


What an exceptional piece of hardware. I have recently moved and have not installed a full alarm system yet. I have been looking for a video surveillance solution but was not really happy with the complex setup and expense, enter the Netgear Vuezone....

Simple to setup ; Wire Free ; Compact Cameras and Base Station ; Scaleable solution allows for up to 15 cameras ; Customizable email alerts with still image or short video clips ; Iphone and Android Apps ; Choice of 640x480 (4fps) and 320x240 (6fps)...

Not 24/7 monitoring but on demand only ; Too soon for me to comment on battery life ; Only really useful indoors ; Noticed some interference with my existing wifi network

Good Starter Kit


Setup was very simple and took me about five minutes to setup. I've tried a couple of other systems and this was much better. Cameras are completely wireless which is a major plus.App is easy to use and very convenient. No cost until you have 3+...

Not bad


I needed this device to watch my extremely active pets (2 cats and a dog) who cannot be left at home for a long time without a surveillance. I actually wanted to buy Petcube camera (specially designed for pets, good option BTW), but it doesnt ship yet...
