Eh.

 

I will probably spend more on something a little more tried and true.

Functional camera, more or less. The idea that you could view and control the camera from anywhere is a nice thought, that this camera sometimes delivers.

I found the interfaces (mobile and desktop) to be clunky and buggy. So much so- that after over a year of progressively more issues, I finally gave up on it.

Useless Cloud server

 

This security camera is useless. I only can monitor remotely using my iPhone but I can't record video at all. Software Trendview pro or cloud view pro comes with it wont work with cloud. It has to use local IP address and through own router in which...

Wouldnt connect after a day

 

I hoped installing the updated firmware would help, but it made no difference, The longest it lasted was about 24 hours.

Seems solid and well constructed. Image quality was good. Install was easier than I expected.

It wouldn't stay connected longer than a day. Every time I got it working again (after re-installing) it would work for a few hours then it wouldn't connect to the "cloud" anymore. Kind of pointless if you can't see the image. I tried installing using...

Disappointed

 

Newegg wants me to pay $11 to ship defective unit back

Looks mechanically robust, if only it worked

Wouldn't install or connect to WiFi. Product support was no help. Invested 5 hours banging head against the wall!. Installation software asked to download new firmware but the link never connected to Trendiest. Router indicates unit was permanently...
