Nifty device and great app


I’ve been considering getting one of many home security cameras for awhile now and Dropcam was my leading choice until Google bought them and Homeboy came out. At first I was a little wary of a device that has rechargeable batteries but it really does only need to be recharged every couple of months which is a great tradeoff for being able to put it almost anywhere without unsightly wires and having to worry about powering it.

The quality of the image is great and it can sense motion in the dark and then illuminate the area with built in LED lights. I use the geofence feature so the camera arms itself when I leave my home and disarms when I return automatically. Push notifications alert me to any action.

There is some room for improvement though:
1. Allow the captured footage to be saved externally or somehow sent somewhere. Currently, you can play what the camera captures via the app but there’s no way to transfer the video anywhere (e.g. to your computer or send a link to someone).

2. While you can trigger a recording manually, I’d like to be able to occasionally view the camera live (live stream without having to make a recording).

The two items above aren’t deal breakers for me though and the software works great as does the device!

Very nice app


Update: got the camera and it's very nice. But this isn't a camera review, it's an app review. The app has been out and working for a while, the camera shipped this week.

After using the camera, the only thing I would change is I don't see s way to delete or clear out old videos. Maybe I'm missing something. The video list could get heavy after a while. Also the layout of the video list page is not very nice looking. But functionally it all works great so I'm still giving the app 5 stars.

old review:
I was evaluating whether to buy one of the homeboy cameras, and the web site wasn't helping me determine if the company was legit or not. I figured, why not check out the iOS app: if it's lame, that will be a red flag, if it's good, they're probably legit.

Well the app is very nicely designed, with a great onboarding process that you can get started with even before having the camera. It also has built in live support! Pretty cool. I ordered a camera and am looking forward to using this app more once it arrives. Love the Posse approach and the different access levels, it means I can even enlist neighbors to respond when appropriate. Auto disarm is brilliant (have to enable location in background). Very cool stuff.

Great camera! Awesome alarm system


This camera is the real deal. I purchased one a month ago and it performs exactly as advertised. The app is very clean and works great with the camera. I would love to be able to add my other ip cameras to this app.
