Good cam, app needs a little work still.


As far as the camera goes it works great ( I only wish I would have bought the 1080p), one huge thing that needs to be added though is the option to force the camera to stay in either day or night mode through the app. In dim lights it will constantly switch back and forth and it is very annoying when it does, especially the clicking as the IR lights switch on and off. We use as a baby cam and it’s woke our son up from naps when it gets in one of its moods. That’s my only real major complaint though.

The phone app is also getting much better and they are definitely making strides in improving its reliability. As I said though one big feature needs to be added.

When you set the camera up you need to make sure it’s either wired or linking to a 2.4ghz signal, it does not support 5ghz which would be a good feature in the future. Also make sure you put the app on your computer and do the firmware updates once a month or so if they are available it will keep things running smoothly.

So Far...Overall, really Good


We have high-speed cable Internet provider with any higher than average accounts peas. I confirmed with the company before purchasing the required download and upload speed‘s. How are speed‘s testing from the same speed test site has posted p.m. crest website produced extremely high speeds 10 times what was required. So I don’t anticipate any problems with speed.

The camera works with the app as was described on the website and explained by the technical representative. I will test the system while I’m at work this week.

We purchased the network video recorder with the system as well thinking we could utilize the recorder for our video library as opposed to a monthly online streaming fee. Have not set that up or tested it yet I will update my review when we do.

What A Waste of Time and Money! 😤


I purchased three cameras and spent quite a bit of time setting them up to work with this app. Our Wifi router died so we had to replace it, which meant getting a new network name and password. This also meant updating the cameras/app with the new info. I've spent hours trying to get them to work, but I can't get them to connect to the new network. On top of that, after deleting the cameras and trying to reinstall them on the app, even with the old camera user name and password, the app doesn't recognize the cameras. I can't reset any of it from the app and the website is even more complicated to figure out. This system isn't worth your time and money. They need to make it more user friendly. (Keep it simple! We want to be able to plug it in and let the app do all the complicated work for us).

Buyers, Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere. We just ordered the Nest camera system and expect a much easier time!
