This Amcrest is different though. I had to set up on PC first and then connect a tablet. The software is more versatile than anything I've seen. It was somewhat intuitive and extremely flexible. You can even select certain zones for the lens to NOT monitor during motion detection. The store owner is somewhat computer savvy, but not overly so and had no problems with the operation and adjustment of this camera's parameters. It records to a micro-SD and monitors movement at night after she closes. She has already seen her landlord enter after hours and roam around her store, unannounced. He is on film now...
From my experience, I recommend to just spend the money for this camera if you want something decent. The cheaper ones just won't do it and you'll barely even be able to decipher the ill-written instructions, much less speak with someone you'll be able to understand IF you can contact anyone in the first place. This camera was miles above anything else I've attempted to set up!
-Easy set up. I'd say that it probably takes about 5 mins to actually set this up. The hardest part for me was actually following directions and not just skipping things. For example, when it says that the default username and password is admin, that means you should actually type in admin for both and not just try to set up your own username and password... LOL
-Picture quality is excellent. The night vision is a little grainy when viewed from a desktop, but it's clear enough for me to see if my daughter has her eyes opened or closed and looks really clear on my phone.
-2 way talk. This was one of the main things we wanted to have in the camera so that we could tell our daughter to go back to bed without having to go upstairs every 5 seconds.
-Able to view on the desktop as well as on our phones. Even though I almost always have my phone close by, I work on my laptop late into the night, so it's nice to be able to check in on her without draining my battery on my phone.
-Customer service. Not nearly the painful experience I thought it was going to be and they fixed my problem. What a novel concept!!
-Failed to connect. After the first couple of hours, the app on my phone would constantly give me the error message "Failed to Connect" each time I tried to view the live feed. I finally gave in and called customer service. Surprisingly, the wait wasn't horrible and the fix was super easy. All I had to do was log in on the desktop and do a manual reboot of the system. I did that on the first day and it hasn't given me the error message since.
-Desktop program doesn't work on chrome. Ugh...
NOT SO MUCH CONS, BUT I WISH IT HAD:
-Completely wireless. I know I could get a camera that doesn't have the power cord, but I would have to give up quality, but I just wish I could have the same camera without an ugly power cord.
-White. Apparently this camera comes in white even though the options given were only black and silver. When searching to forward the info for a friend, I found the white option and it was Prime....
The baby monitor breaking on us was probably one of the best things that could have happened. For half the price of a new baby monitor, we got almost everything we wanted! We took care of that issue by getting one of these :https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FT6YWDA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1. In fact, my husband loves it so much, we'll be purchasing more for the rest of the house and front door.
A little background...My reason for purchasing this camera was so I could watch one of my dogs who is going through severe heartworm treatment. She is unable to walk upstairs and has to stay isolated and calm on my 1st floor bedroom. I wanted to be sure i could watch her throughout the day in case there was an emergency. This camera has been a godsend. Not only can I watch her on video (and record it too if I want), I can put the speaker on and talk to her!! I love that I can literally talk to my dog while I'm at work and watch her walk over to the camera and tilt her head. It makes me feel happy that she can hear my voice and not feel so lonely in that room by herself all day. On top of that, it is hilarious to spy on your pets and If you've never done that before, it's a pretty good laugh when you do. I've caught mine about to chew my shoe the other day and was able to turn the speaker on and say "NO, put it down"...she dropped my shoe quick and started looking around the room to see where my voice was coming from. Problem diverted! lol
As illustrated in my photos uploaded, the quality of the video from my iPhone 6s and my boyfriends Android is great in both light and dark room situations. All you do is hit the little circle icon in the middle which allows you to scroll up, down and around to view the room. It's pretty simple. You can keep the microphone on or off and can mute the sound coming from either direction if you choose. Sound quality is just as good as the picture quality.
As for any flaws with this camera....the only things I've experienced so far that have been a little annoying is the following: the camera does make a little popping noise when first turning on the microphone from the phone app. Basically, if you are trying to be inconspicuous and turn on the microphone without the person in the room knowing, that won't happen. It's only when you first turn the mic on though and not a consistent popping noise. Also, the app will time out sometimes once I close app and try to re-open it. I just have to restart the program and all is good, it's not a huge deal. Those 2 nuisances haven't been so severe that I wished I wouldn't have picked this camera though.
Overall, I am really pleased with the performance of this camera and have already recommended it to all my neighbor's. It's a great price and works excellent!
