Ordered and received camera from a US seller. It is of Chinese origin and setup instructions are very poor. After several attempts to connect to my wireless network, I "Googled" the software, which must be downloaded from the Android Play Store or Apple depending on your phone, and found a You Tube 7 minute video how to properly install and connect to your wireless network. Once installed, it works great. You can pan and pitch the camera from your phone. Video quality is quite good considering the price. You can also record still photos of video directly to the phone. The camera does have a speaker but sound quality is poor. I'm pleased enough to have ordered a second camera to cover both my front and back door.
It is an indoor camera. I would not trust it outside in the rain. It was built for the China market, and then did a little (very little) work for the USA market. I did get it to work as a simple alarm camera, but could not get it to automatically take a picture or fideo whe it is alarmed. It does send an allert to your phone. I would rate it much higher if I could use it directly from a PC. You must use a phone. There is no way to turn off the speaker. When power is cycled, it starts yapping to say it is working. The while color is a little too bright. If you want to hide it, you will need to paint it a darker color. The instructions are very weak. The printed instructions are way to small to read. I would like to get the engineering specifications describing how it operates. The Open Source community would have a great time creating a PC application for the camera. Get this item as a starter camera. You can practice setting up various camera placements and not worry about losing an expensive item.
Setup easy enough and cameras found quickly. App does not allow for simultaneous viewing of multiple cameras - you have to stop viewing one and start the next. View is acceptable. Camera does not have preset positions, and the control of movement is not consistent using finger - sometimes it works, sometimes it actually goes the opposite direction. The arrow buttons work a little better. Sound is very loud while it's performing set up (talks through what's happening) and very loud volume (and clear) when speaking through the app - but ONLY when you're on the same network. Unintelligible on the camera side (but clear on the app) when trying to talk over the internet. Night vision works well. Camera seems well made enough, but it's performance is lacking.
Great quality video both day and night. Records audio too. Many neat features. Great peace of mind when away from home. Just view live video on your phone using the Zmodo App.
I use this camera with Blue Iris security software (also works great with Onvifer in Android) to monitor mice in my crawl spaces. It set up quickly with 'Eye 360' in Android, which I used to set the WiFi connection. Once set, I can monitor the camera from either my Android tablet or my Windows PC through my WiFi or LAN. My only minor complaint is the pan/tilt is a little creaky, but to have P/T at all on such an inexpensive camera is a minor miracle in itself. I will definitely buy more of these if I find more mice that need monitoring...
