This is connected to wifi. Since it’s wifi connected therefore if my phone is away from home, this does not work, It’s useless. If my phone is not st home I can’t monitor through my phone. Also the steps in connection guideline are not easy to understand. I suggest that you label your user step manual such as: 1) Open package, turn on device 2) go to settings of phone and find wifi connection of the device then click it Etc etc I wanted a spy camera which I can use to monitor my room, home, car even if I’m not within close proximity, meaning when I’m away. That’s what spy camera is for.
