Not security class device
July 5, 2018
One item puzzled me during the install. Why do you have to hard connect it by network cable during the wifi configuration? Ideally you should just scan the barcode enter the wifi password and it should connect but it doesnt without the network cable the ist time. After connecting and unplugging the network cable then wireless works fine. Ive had it installed for about a week now. I had to turn down motion sensitivity to 45 because it was recording ever bug that flew by. Im using the android phone software for everything. The 4 pc applications that come on disc are completely useless to me. I tried many times to connect to the camera and could not. The software complexity level was too high for me. And ive actaully done software testing in my job. I cant imagine a scenario that i would need to use the pc software. Despite these minor issues everthing has been running great using my wifi and cell phone. For the region grid setting i cant find any information if making one of the squares black causes the camera to ignore the spot or to focus on the spot? I am wondering how the camera will perform at minus 40 celcius in the winter.? I would recommend thia camera and im thinking of getting another one. I think id like it more if they packaged the memory card with camera instead of having to buy it separately. You should also plan to spend 150 dollars per camera once you add the memory card.
Update. I am now resetting the camera at least once per week. It just stops recording. The only thing that fixes it ia a power cycle. Not acceptable for a security device. This changes my mind and im now removing all the stars. This is not a security class device. I could have been robbed and would have never known
