No, no. We did NOT get this as a serious indoor surveillance camera for the house. That had been taken care of long time ago.
This was the latest hi-tech measure to mitigate the intense, war-footing sibling rivalry. Yep. This is to hopefully stop accusations of theft (of little things like batteries (rather than going down 2 flights of stairs to my huge cache of batteries (from the Dollar store)).
And this camera for $40 an absolute beauty.
It took us, Teischan and I, less than 3 minutes, TOPS, to set it up — including downloading the Android APP (to Teischan’s pad) and setting it upon Wi-Fi (using the ‘WOW That Was Easy’ one-touch Wi-Fi configuration). Worked first time. No hassle. Absolute joy. This thing has Infrared for night vision, motion detection and can be controlled remotely. Yes, it is slightly big BUT we are talking $40.
Things are bad on the sibling rivalry issue at our house. In November, fed up with the constant bickering, I got them FOOD LOCKERS! Now they can lock up their favorite snacks so that the other doesn’t ‘borrow’ them. But it appears that wasn’t enough. So hopefully this camera will provide some type of true — the CAMERA DETERRENT!
This was the second camera we tried out. I first ordered an UOKOO camera but we couldn’t set it up! So that went back.
Two thumbs PLUS, PLUS for this camera. Amazing. Oh, it has two-way voice communications too and as such would be GREAT as a baby monitor or a pet monitor. 5-star. We love it. Not sure I would use it as a security camera — and I am not sure whether you can access it over the Internet as opposed to just Wi-Fi. I haven’t looked. But for now it does all of what I/Teischan want it to do. For me its is the peace. $40 for that. You can’t beat it. SMILE.
