After searching and searching for a rather inexpensive wifi security camera, I came across the LaView camera. Picture and video in HD is absolutely superb! Easy to setup and for all that it does, the price is outstanding. I have one setup in my garage to watch my 2 dogs. The audio is a little choppy but it gets my dogs attention! Planning on buying more LaView cameras once Ovetstock starts having more selection of the Wifi models! Update: Purchased a second one! Both are working flawlessly. Both work as advertised!
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.
Effective for what it does, especially when you don't truly need a real surveillance camera. Everyone who comes to the door waves to it as if we have a camera inside viewing them.....quite funny!
