I really like that you turn this system on and it simply works (plug and play). The quality is very good. I am impressed with the picture and video resolution. Using the touchscreen monitor is simple and intuitive with very practical options. I am very happy that the app to link the smart phone to is straightforward, no fuss trying to write computer codes getting one to talk to the other, just loaded the app and connected the device in seconds. The app has good options and is easy and practical. Overall I think this is a fantastic security monitoring system and exactly what I was looking for.
