Doesn't Reconnect to WiFi Automatically

Jillyn, Amazon

An embarrassment for Swann

RYAN H., Newegg
29 April 2013
  • Summary: STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT.
  • Pros: "Cloud recording" can be an advantage, IF the service is better designed.
  • Cons: This camera has been a huge disappointment. The recording was OK at best showing mostly unclear images at night. The setup is certainly idiotic.

Excellent Security Camera with WiFi

Willis1952, Walmart
7 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I already have a back to base security system that segments the house into a number of zones. If an intrusion occurs the motion sensor would kick in and dial the security firm. I thought I'd supplement the current system with this camera.
