Excerpt: I found this camera very easy to set-up with my iPhone. The App was a little harder to find, and near impossible to find in the app store for iPad. But once found and installed, it was easy to use and provides a great picture of live video for free. I did purchase the monthly fee so that it will record snap shots when it detects movement. I may increase the monthly fee if I want full recorded video that stores in the cloud for up to 30 days.
Excerpt: Pro: Easy setup with I-phone, received email alerts promptly. Infared worked very well Con: Could not download swannsmart to the I-pad for setting up the camera. Wish the camera was offered in a darker color. I will buy more of these cameras for other properties.
Summary: I bought this camera to audit barbers in my barber shop. The camera records "events" of up to 575 pictures whenever motion is detected, approximately every second. When I go to review the events, they take forever to load, and they take forever to review (even with 10 megabit cable and i7 processor). The interface and probably the cloud servers are not well designed. icloud is total $#!t.
Excerpt: Bought 4 of these cameras for my small retail business and was very happy with the ease of installation and set up. Picture quality and sound are excellent. I have another Swann security "wired" system at a different retail store and this one puts the other to shame. I would highly recommend this security system to anyone.
Pros: Compact, Easy to install, Easy To Set Up, Great Puicture, Great sound
