Now to the camera. If you have the alarm system it only makes sense to go with this in order to keep everything operating within one app. So this is what I did. The unboxing and mounting of the actual camera was simple enough. Getting the app to find the camera was also easy enough (following the directions in the app). Problem I ran into was that the app kept telling me that it kept failing to add the camera, even though it did on my initial attempt. This was verified by my wife saying that she kept getting an alert on her phone saying motion was detected. Once I figured that out, went ahead and mounted it outside.
This is where I removed a star (maybe I should have removed 2). The 1080p doesn't seem as clear as (lets say) my 1080p TV. The speaker on my camera is barely audible and the delay in speech from user to receiver takes some getting used. I kept looking for a volume adjustment through the app but couldn't find one. Maybe its something I'm doing wrong, so if anyone knows please feel free to let me know!
Another issue is the delay from when it detects motion to when the notification appears on you phone. It seems to take forever (maybe 5-10 seconds). Maybe its because we are getting used to things being so instantaneous, but this seems to be too long a wait for the signal (notification) to come to the phone.
Another ding against this camera is the live view. It takes over 10-15 seconds for the camera and the app to sync. The app has to "wake" the camera and then wait for the feed to get to your phone. Just seems to be too long of a wait.
And just to be clear we are using this via the WiFi (router is about 25-28 feet away) and camera battery (not plugged in to direct power). Maybe that makes a difference. So, for the price, this camera seems to be too expensive for what it is capable of doing (for me that is).
All of my exterior cameras are connected to electrical outlets so battery life is not a concern for me. However, I still have the same issue as the camera runs off the battery regardless if there is an electrical connection or not.
As others have mentioned, the battery life in these are pretty week. Mine lasted maybe 1-2 weeks. Really depends on how much motion the camera is picking up, so if you are in a heavily trafficked area your battery performance will be weak. I am looking into hardwire options because having to re-charge (~5 hours) every 2 weeks is not ideal.
