Good camera, but bad software


do not recommend, but couldn't find anything better for the price

motion/sound notifications

2-3 seconds lag is not acceptable for baby monitor. Setup is very confusing with dual band WIFI-router - by default my phone connects to 5-Ghz, but camera supports only 2.4-Ghz. To complete setup you need to manually switch to 2.4-Ghz. Not so obvious....

Not full-featured


Price is on the high end given the above-mentioned cons. There are also many other alternative products available from other companies. This one is priced higher than average but certainly is not the most expensive.

Easy to notice features of temperature, sound pass-through and motion sensing. These are turned on by default and can be very useful. Useful pan and tilt angle range. Firmware update was automatic. Setup was easy for the most part since there is...

No auto focus, someone has to manually focus the lens using the tool provided. Auto light exposure is implemented by default but otherwise can be changed to either daytime or nighttime. There is really no other way to set this thing up. You have to...

Peace of mind for my wife!


We have two young children and a newborn, and before receiving this camera we relied on simple sound monitors for babies. Going from sound monitors with terrible range to a full on video camera with night vision and remote monitoring definitely felt...

The features are well thought out on this camera; night vision, temperature/noise/motion alerts, ability to control the camera remotely, 2-way audio, ability to record video or take pictures - this camera really has everything my wife and I could hope...

Four relatively minor things that really irk me and result in one docked egg: 1) No 5 GHz wifi support. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. It's 2015 guys... 5 GHz wireless is standard, and it absolutely should be supported on this device. You're willing to...

Should not be released yet.


The ability of the camera is great for its size and aesthetic. The speaker sounds nice and mellow. The built-in lullabies are nice. The mic has just the right sensitivity. The video quality is good enough, and night mode is very clear.

This is the deal breaker. The application is flat out unreliable. I have tried it on a range of ios and android devices. I need a product to notify me when my baby requires attention, and this product can not do that reliably yet. I want it to work,...

Mobile App (required) fails


1. Local home intranet set up easy 2. Can setup camera as hotspot and use when traveling. 3. Remote viewing, when it works.

1. Mobile app required to use, no app for PC. 2. Although local connection is easy to set up, connection to mydlink for remote viewing fails. Must set up new account using the mobile app (I am using Andriod). yet unable to create new account even...
