i have this device hanging upside down from a GoPro suction mount, facing out my window. I put electrical tape over the infrared emitter, and bought a stand alone IR emitter from Amazon. When night falls, the Zmodo switches to infrared about the same time that my IR emitter turns on (it also has a night sensor). The IR emitter lights up my whole front yard, while my Zmodo which is in night mode, captures in sharp detail the scene at night. My only complaint is that out of the three different WiFi cameras that I have, and the three different apps that are required to view the cameras, I think it is the Zmodo that is causing some strange behavior on my Google Pixel phone. Like causing the volume button to not respond, requiring that I restart my Pixel. Also, the Pixel is much slower now, but that might be because of all three of the camera apps together, bogging things down. Other than that, the Zmodo, which is backed by an established presence in the United States, is a seriously good, bang for the dinero.
I've had my Arlo pro System with 3 cameras for less than a month, I love them so much I'm back for 2 more cameras. Two days after installing them I had packages stolen off my porch. My four 30 second videos were given to the detective. The videos and sound were so good they were able to catch the group that had been going around following the delivery trucks. A group of middle school kids currently awaiting their court dates. Having these cameras has helped regain the sense of security lost from the theft on my property. Free 7 day storage for up to 5 cameras, movement alerts, clear sound, great night vision. You can even make out snowflakes as they're falling. I recommend Arlo Pro security cameras to everyone.
Amazing camera, awesome night Vision but will not connect to wifi no matter what. I ended up having to use the telephone lone against my will because I didn't want to return it just for that reason. But it's great quality though.
