Works as expected,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: NightWatcher Motion - tracking Motorized LED Flood Light with Color Camera (Misc.)
I installed 4 of these over 4 months ago, and they have been working very well. I also installed two other cameras, from a different manufacturer that provide a live feed to the house, so these NightWatcher cameras are for backup/alternate angles (and also for their motion tracking lights). Since the NightWatchers record directly to their on-board SD cards, they are not useful for live-monitoring. However, they work well in their designed capacity. The tracking function is really cool, and seems to make for an intimidating deterrent.
One tip: One of my NightWatcher lights was coming on every time a car drove by on the street, because the motion detection has a pretty long range. I made it "near-sighted" by placing electrical tape over the upper portion of the motion detection window on the NightWatcher. Now, it only "sees" when there is motion on the driveway and near the garage. Perfect. Raise or lower the tape on the window to adjust the range.
I am satisfied with these camera/lights.

I am finding my new unit to have a very limited detection distance of about 12 feet. Also, i don't have any kind of code device for setting code for wireless alarm. The wireless alarm device does not have a code area in its battery compartment like the manual shows that it should have. So there is nothing anywhere to punch any code in to synch the light with the alarm. Anyone else have this problem?
