WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
I use the Wansview Cloud app. I own an indoor camera. I find an outdoor camera to be a nice addition to my setup. Mounted outside a window overlooking my driveway, it maintains a nice view of my driveway and the road. The motion detection recording feature captures any vehicle as it passes my house. Night vision detection is pretty good. It has passed the waterproof test and has survived two rainstorms without issue. The image quality is acceptable. The only real concern I have with this camera is that it does not have an SD card slot similar to the Wansview Indoor Cameras. This is important because without an SD card, the camera only records a few clips to the cloud when motion is detected. The camera is extremely useful for capturing and recording short motion capture clips, however certain people would need long video recording periods for it to work well. However, for me, it is a 5 star product because I only plan to use it to view in real time. I am not subscribed, and am reviewing the camera without the optional paid cloud service.
This camera was received and installed today. The setup and activation was relatively simple. In the beginning, the account administrators kept us logged out because only one person can be logged in. Once we have done it together, we can share viewing so we can both see the camera in real time and receive notifications. The power cord is long and it runs from an indoor outlet to the outside of the house. For most of the process, including setting up the camera, the application was installed in twentyfive minutes. I will purchase more of these for other areas around my house. I love the price for each camera and I like that they come in black and white. You can set the sensitivity of the camera. I have had issues with my existing system, which made me constantly receive notifications.
This is my first security camera. I purchased it to catch a thief who keeps stealing my packages. This camera is very useful and you can view it from anywhere you desire. It is clear in the morning and evening. It was easy to get together. I did mine over wifi. The cloud is reasonable but you do not require it to use the camera. The Customer service atwansview is excellent. Additionally, I purchase an excellent camera at a good price. I had some questions, and they respond to you quickly to make sure you are satisfied with your purchase.
I own the Q5, Q6, and Q6 Indoor Wideview cameras, and I am happy with them. Recently, one of my outdoor cameras stopped working. I have my choice between the Q5 and Q6 indoor cameras. The setup was the same as the indoor models. You can scan the QR code from your phone or directly from the back of the camera using the code on the sticker. It connects to your WiFi 2.4GHz network, and you are up and running. The setup process is extremely easy and anyone should be able to complete the process. Follow the instructions. The camera is very small, so it is easy to place, even in tight spaces. The Ethernet cable will give you the option to connect to your router. The reset button has a cover. It will not reset the camera accidentally. In the evening you get a great night view with a nice field of view that gives you a high quality picture. It was completely dark outside, and this camera provided a clear view even at a distance of well over 100 feet. Motion detection is easy to setup and provides you with the ability to limit the motion detection area. I left mine on full area coverage which works for me. I find it a good idea to offer this option if necessary. You can set up push alerts to be notified when motion is detected, review what was detected on your phone or use optional cloud storage. The small price makes this camera a good choice.

I have had no issues with my LG phone. It was the size indicated and I have not had problems with them working since they were installed.
In order to run some Raspberry Pi projects I needed eight gigabyte cards, and no store in the country sells anything smaller than sixteen gigabyte cards. They are very inexpensive, which is perfect for the project I am working on.
I live in the Jersey area of the United States, and we are able to experience extreme weather quickly. I utilize these eight gigabyte micro SD cards in my home outside security cameras and they have been through outdoor testing so far and they have been working just fine, no issues, and they have been reliable. I am satisfied with my purchase. Thank you for making such an excellent product'
These are working great. I am using smaller memory cards for operating system DVD images for the installation of Linux.

Due to some of the neighborhood kids not liking my particular political affiliation and expression of my 1st amendment in my own home we had to find a low cost surveillance solution. I researched the Geeni & Merkur line after the Arlos failed miserably and he died in less than a day. I have bought a floodlight that is located on the bottom right of the room. He did a great job and was very bright. I inserted a 32gigabyte card and was able to start. I then purchased a doorbell option to replace the current one. After installing a repeater it worked great. After that I bought a mini one for the garage. I cannot recall if I closed the garage or not. I then purchased another floodlight and installed it. I just received the Hawk one and replaced the old camera that I had placed there. The picture quality is great night or day. Both these things are excellent ways to talk. My son and I had a conversation from the floodlight. It usually responds within a second or two. There were no problems with freezing. I am very satisfied with my purchase. It was inexpensive.
I did a lot of research. The product is an excellent value for money. The app works flawlessly. However, you require a good, strong internet connection to function properly. I cannot stress that enough. You will need a repeater for WiFi if your router is far away. I have six living around my house. It's great because these come with a microSD card. They will connect to the wall outlet. You will have to tie some wire. You can check your camera from work or play. This is a great system, it has everything. I have a few flood lights. I think they are a bit better. However, I also love these.
The camera now features five operating cameras and is simple to use. Their cameras may be placed on several different areas such as the front porch or back porch, and also in the office building. Their cloud provides an easy way to get to and pay for it, unlike other cameras. You should have motion detectors for each. Viewing video from any location that has an Internet connection is preferrable. There are a few issues that I find not worth the extra cash. The mounting screws need to be replaced. A few cents will buy screws that will not strip. The instructions are simple and precise. It may take several times to connect, depending on how far you are from the modem. Mine took a few times, after the app stated Try again. I believe that the data load is accumulative, maybe not. It eventually loaded everything and worked.
The receiver in the signal box may be better. The distance is only 15 feet from my router and it is less than 50%. I enjoy the quality of the picture. This camera will not integrate with Gosund. As with other smart devices, it has to be installed on the Geeni app it is intended for. Playing back can be tricky, but it works as it should.
Geeni Scope WiFi Indoor Smart Motion Tracking Security Camera & Mounting Kit, 2 Way Audio & Night Vison, Compatible with Alexa and Google, No Hub Required
WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
It functions with Alexa and is a much less expensive solution for home security. I have been using door sensors for approximately one month. I am not sure if I am becoming paranoid due to the recent events in our neighborhood, but I may upgrade to a different brand soon. My camera in our home captured someone in the house, but didn't alert me of a door being opened. Our windows are always locked. It seems that these door sensors are extremely sensitive and I am sad that I cannot use them anymore. I will get a notification that the door has opened, if I notice that the door across the room is still closed. That is not the best feeling when you are home alone while your husband is deployed.
These really are very nice and simple. I have had no problems using them outside on a pool gate for over a year. It is inside a water tight, plastic fence. Additionally, use the other for the garage door. I have purchased a couple and they have not been difficult for me. They lag time is about five to fifteen seconds, but it is not an issue for my applications.
I installed a mailbox in my driveway, and it was able to notify me when mail had been delivered. I searched for something for my mailbox all day, and then realized that I already had something I could use. It works well that far out, and the other one is alerting me to when someone opens the door.
It was a bit difficult to position on my door frames because they are not flat but rather have curved edges. I finally had to use Hot glue gun because the door frame sensor piece had to be tilted to mount on the curved door frame part in order to get it close enough to the doormounted sensor. Hot glue finally positioned the frame sensor in a location that required no movement during production. I enjoy Geeni sensors, they are typically cheaper than other brands and they are just as useful as Vivint systems.

I truly enjoy this little camera. I have had it running for over three weeks now, and the camera battery is only down to half. I will remove it and charge it once it is about 20% full. It is amazing that I was able to turn my camera live and capture views while it was hanging upside down. I truly enjoy it when I am away. I receive a notification that something is delivered and I can see that on my iPhone. I can access the app and view any activity that is occurring in a large area. I have excellent night vision. The sound is very good. I can even communicate with anyone outside my location. I can also record events if I choose to. That is the best investment I have ever made.
There is no need for a power source since there is a built in battery. Battery life can vary dramatically depending on the location and setting. Advertises for up to three months per charge. The street on my girlfriend's front porch is called Busy Street, and it's sensitive. It should be charged every four weeks. It probably lasts approximately two months with the one on her mother's house. The third at my mother's, Country/High Sensitive, will go the full three or longer. I enjoy having night vision. It is easy to setup using the Geeni app. You will be able to share your camera feed with other people. All of the camera are in the Google Home app and work well. The item comes with both a magnetic and screw on mount, although I've used both. I prefer the magnetic mount, because the screw on mount seemed a little cheaper to purchase.
I love the picture quality and motion detection. I have had the camera for about a month and still have 90% battery life. Installation is easy.
The disadvantages of such an image or video are clear and loud. It takes a couple hours to fully charge, but battery lasts for a long time. Sensors catch everything, including squirrels and cats. It is a free app that you can download. Cons In my opinion, if you want to view live feeds it does take a couple seconds to load feed.

WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
This is a great product if you are already using the Greene product at home. If you plan on using an SD card for recording, make sure you use a good quality one. I had previously invested an older SD card, which was causing the video to lag. I would highly recommend this product.
It is quite simple to setup. Once the application is installed and you open it, click on the add device link. The app generates a QR code that you simply hold on the camera and voila, done. You should input your 2.4GHz network name and password prior, even if it is hidden because you're giving it the information to connect. Motion detection is very fast and has almost no latency. The only issue I had was that my mechanical chime was weak because the transformer that is now powering this doorbell is also doing the chime inside. I was able to correct this by increasing the voltage rating of the transformer. It can be set to record continuously or only when motion detects. A MicroSD card of up to 32 gigabytes is a must. I enjoy the 'talkback' feature. If you program the doorbell, you will hear a mechanical or electronic sound when someone presses the button.
The Geeni doorPeek is a wired doorbell that uses your existing transformer and mechanical chime. The doorbell install was fairly straightforward, but I did have to run the install routine three times before it worked. The screw is a pain to install and took a little work to get it in place and tight. This motion sensor uses an adjustable sensitivity and a chime controller. The chime controller was not necessary in my situation, although I did not see that noted in the instructions. The tech support team responded within 24 hours and I got the chime going. The product arrived on time and the packaging was nice. I will update this once I have the doorbell on for a couple of months. I am inclined to like the idea of seeing and speaking with anyone who is present, even if I am absent.
An additional few caveats, is that the installation to existing wiring can require connectors smaller than those supplied, depending on the size of the cut out for the existing doorbell and the space behind the doorbell which must be large enough to accommodate wires and connectors. The biggest challenge has been figuring out the screw necessary to secure the Geeni doorpeek. A Torx tool is required to drive the screw head. The Allen wrench provided is inadequate because the space between the screw and the wall is only about 0.25 inches and is on the bottom of the Geeni Doorpeek. I had a small Torx screwdriver, which held the screw secure while I screwed it in place. Connecting to a home network was easy. I highly recommend the Geeni Doorpeek, but it is not an easy DIY project with the connector and tool supplied.

I waited patiently for the smart doorbell to be released by Netatmo. I am certain that the video call functionality on a given phone works equally well in Netatmo's Security app as well as Apple's Home app. You can choose which apps to answer the video call in, and which app the call will ring in. The calls between my doorbell and my iPhone work flawlessly. The doorbell camera can be configured to save the video in memory. This doorbell will not detect or save video for motion caused by cars or animals, but for people. You can make the videos to be backed up to a Dropbox account for online storage. With the home application HomeKit on the iOS, automations can be setup such as turning on the lights when the doorbell detects motion by a person. Installation and setup were extremely straightforward. I was expecting that it would be very complicated. The manual was helpful and concise. There aren't any annoying technical paragraphs to digest. The doorbell was chimed and wired, no batteries to swap out. The video recordings are saved to a memory on the doorbell. I do not think that the video recordings will save to HomeKit Secure Video. You can back them up to a free Dropbox account. I do not know if Netatmo plans to add support for that in the future. In addition, the doorbell wiring and the chime that I use are relatively new and are of the standard variety. Our current chime and doorbell hardware were the inexpensive generic model found at Home Depot.
It is said that there are not many alternatives for HomeKit doorbells. It is a good choice. The only thing that annoyed me was that the doorbell did not chime on press. However, this feature was recently added via a firmware update.
This product is great. It was easy to install and works well. The only thing that I would change is to have more angle options to angle it more or less.

WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
We have this system so we can monitor both the exterior of our house and the front door, without having to pay a monthly fee. I expected setup to be much more difficult than it was. I set up the account on my smartphone and also the cameras and it was all that was needed to install the NVR. After several minutes of the cameras announcing their status, the system was fully set up and we were able to start planning out where to mount the cameras. That is a problem you do not want to deal with. The system was made of a lot of cardboard. I believe it is acceptable that the NVR and camera products were not damaged. I'm working on getting power through the attic before mounting, but I definitely feel good about the system.
This is an easy to install product which performed very well.

The mini camera is wireless and works very well with crystal clear photos and recordings. Also an A+++ seller on Amazon. Excellent communication, helpful, prompt delivery. I will buy again from this seller.
The reason for the one star was that I cannot get this thing to work. I have followed the instruction exactly, but I have not been successful so far.
Great little camera arrived quickly and worked better than I had expected. Love it'
