Good cameras and decent system
Reviewed in Australia on 27 August 2020
The recordings are decent quality and the cameras are very rugged and waterproof. You're going to want a decent internet connection. Mine was pretty poor (750 Kb/s up) and the file uploading was shockingly slow, but it was still workable and didn't seem to saturate the connection. Have since gotten access to better internet and now have no issues. I went on holiday and the peace of mind was wonderful.
The front door camera is mounted very high up and really struggles with night vision. I had to turn it off as the camera is mounted on an I-beam and the night vision light reflects and totally blinds the camera. Night vision with just the normal video is ok, I mean you can see shapes but don't expect to recognize faces.
I live on a shared driveway so I tried to set up an activity zone around my front door so I don't get bombarded by notifications of my neighbours movements. It just seemed to be too insensitive as people would come, be in the recording zone for a brief time to place a package and walk away and it would never go off. I played with it a bunch and eventually settled with having no activity zones and recording everything and even then you can tell that it triggers quite late, the recordings are sometimes of people almost leaving the frame before it started. It works well 85-90% of the time but keep this in mind.
My biggest issue is mounting. In a rental, I can't drill these into walls. So I tried using 3M strips. After 1 month, one of my cameras, while on holiday fell down. It was a carpeted area so no big deal. Then another 3 months later another fell down, this one quite high over a hardwood floor but it was totally undamaged. Both of these that fell are using the magnetic mount and it seems there just isn't enough plastic to get good adhesion to with the strips. The other indoor camera is using the screw on mount and this doesn't show any signs of falling down. The last one was placed above the front door with some outdoor 3M tape and after 8 months I noticed it was sagging down and pulling away from the metal so I scraped the tape off and reapplied. It seems with all the beating the weather takes and the torque applied from the camera on the screw mount is enough to slowly remove the tape from the surface. I can't say I am altogether surprised but make sure there is enough tape to make sure it does not fall. It held onto the plastic totally fine so it was more the connection to the surface.
