Works great for care of disabled family member

I bought Carl the minion at Kmart online to keep an eye on my disabled sister & I couldn’t be happier with it. It synced up with the app on my iPad through my wifi effortlessly. I also was able to check in with her when I was out on my iPhone. I can see her and talk to her and hear her. It also has a really clear picture during the day and at night in black&white. This would also be great to keep an eye on an elderly parent with dementia, you can set it up to alert you if there are any movements. For the price this thing is fantastic! Also the new ones are bendable and can be hung on the wall with two screws.

Bought a second one to view doors in rec room, I wish they would add a feature to the Notifications so you can choose a time frame to automatically turn notifications on and off as a security feature. Now I have to turn notifications on at bedtime and off in the morning. Also being able to choose different notification sounds would be good also.


Latest update = less functionality

The latest update got rid of auto-play, which is such a basic function for any camera system. Shouldn’t have to press play to see a live shot.

They also need a grid view, where all cameras (or perhaps up to four) are all visible at once.

Another need is the ability to set up motion zones to reduce false alerts. Could eliminate a lot of alerts if areas of the screen could be excluded from motion.

Cameras themselves are nice (I have Stuart Minion cams) and reliable, easy to set up. The app is where you will get let down, but on a positive note, they are updating it, even if the update was a step backwards for the end user.

Will raise the review when future updates are done and the app goes back in the right direction for the customer. Hopefully Tend’s focus is on getting the live shots to actually be live.

Edit: Thank you for responding, that kind of support is hard to come by nowadays. Don’t get me wrong, I really like the cameras, just would be nice to have a few basic things working as an end user (just see a live view, no play button and a motion field grid to eliminate motion where you don’t want it). Thank you though, appreciate the response!!! Keep making things better, it is appreciated!!

Used as baby monitors

We use these cameras as monitors for our special needs boys. It’s wonderful to be able to view them while they’re with their nurses when we have to be away from home. It’s nice to be able to review the day in the recorded footage, and even check in on the boys’ care when we’re away. We don’t have night nursing help, so we use the cameras at night like a baby monitor in case of emergencies. It does freeze occasionally and sometimes we have issues getting the volume to work or being able to talk to the boys through the cameras. Overall we’re happy with the app, but we would LOVE if the app had an option to automatically swap between cameras every 15-30-or 60 seconds or so that way we wouldn’t need two devices in order to monitor our two boys.
