I opted for the seven-day storage option, and so far that’s been plenty. We’ve already caught one of the kids sneaking a boyfriend into the house while we were at work. Actually saw a little more than I wanted to when reviewing the clips.

“The best product I have ever invested in,” says a reviewer. “Ironically, I set up the camera and the next day, I was burglarized. Camera was on night mode, lights were off and it had PERFECT footage. I was able to get clear image of the people and I am hoping detectives capture them. The camera sits like a speaker and does not look like a camera at all. I was afraid to order something that may not work well but it has excellent image.”

“So far so good. Just set these up in my parents’ house as we have a lot of people coming through to care for my father,” says a reviewer. “The set up was crazy-easy! The images are awesome. They record 24/7 and you don’t have to get the cloud storage if you don’t want it. The cams record to MicroSD card (sold separate) and when you go back to review footage it shows the entire timeline along with markings where activity was present; making it super simple to find times where there was people in frame.”

“I replaced 4 Foscams with 4 of these and I couldn’t be happier with the video I’m seeing…the color is great and the image is sharp and clear,” a reviewer says. “I bought just one to try them out and shortly bought the other 3. With the app you can talk to the other end and they can talk back to you if you choose. I also use Blue Iris for recording any movement which I have set up. It also emails and could send a notification in a text if you choose. For the price, at least try one like I did.”
