    decent camera for $40

    So here is a few things broken down that you may want to know about: Subscription?: YES, but not necessary and you can watch live and snap pics with the phone instead. We added an SD card, so you CAN use it without a sub. I'd recommend the 30 day if you are having issues like people bothering you or theft. its $10 bucks PER camera. Seven days back up is not enough if you have an active situation. Firmware: update this before you do anything. If you can't, connect camera via wi-fi and then update before you move away from the wi-fi source. You may or may not have to use an extender depending on how far you are. This may be my house, but I have a dead spot that the camera can't work through once we move it. We couldn't get the back camera to update for some reason, but weren't overly worried about it and use it more for live. it still detects things and alerts us. Will see what it does with extender close to it. Night Vision: These cameras do catch reflections pretty strongly. blinds and lights make it hard to see at night. Also the night vision seems to really glare against the window. There are lights on it that also seem to glare against windows. We have outside lights so we leave the porch ones off while night vision is on. Rain makes it near impossible to see out at night on these. Make sure you've cleaned the windows when you install as it really helps the picture. Otherwise, its pretty good. Can't upload more than two pictures or I'd show you. App: **APP** there are two listed in the app store. In the picture i posted, choose the second one with the blue background and white upside down V's. Make sure you are getting the right one. I didn't and felt silly after I tried the other one and it worked after trying the other for 30 minutes. dunce. second picture shows event picture, and activities/ an add button. camera can be put on a dashboard (the add button). When in "live view", there is a circle on the top right which is your settings. You can change the name, plan subscription type, firmware, set detector levels, format the card (sd card). Dashboard: (second picture) We have two cameras on one Dashboard. You can rename it to "front" or "back" ect. if you have issues with this, as we did, put one on separate dashboards. Swipe the screen left or right depending on the cameras you have if they are one dashboard, or use the drop down to go to the other dashboard if using two separate dashes. there is a pen icon in the left top when viewing the base front image like the one I posted. If you need to delete a dashboard for some reason, that is where you'd do it. You will double tap that screen to go into live view also. Live view: It wont record or snap pictures if you are actively watching it. If you watch it, use your phone camera to capture the screen if you don't have the subscription. There were a few times the camera or app were slow, so I just started using my phone for screen shots. hopefully the app catches them on camera video and you get a snap from your phone. Videos and pics can be downloaded to the phone also. I found some of them fail, so make sure to use the phone capture. There is an option to capture video, camera pics, and to use the voice in live. Connection: the QCR (that square thing that you need to scan), that was a little of a pain, but we got it to work. It will ask you to make an account to use it so pick your email for that. it may take a few attempts here as ours did for both cameras. I didn't get but the one email from them and its been a month. No spam thus far. We have a dead pot around a wall. Connect the camera near your wi-fi-super close then move it where you will put it. Make sure you do that firmware update and put in the sd card if using before you mount it. it has a magnetic circular mount to use. We opted for an extender for that deadspot works on 5ghz or 5g routers. As another reviewer said, sometimes it seems to freeze or miss some snaps. Restart the app if it just doesn't seem to load and it will work like before. * I like it. overall, I think some some people may have issues with some parts and some won't. Some of that is the app, or having the right app. Sometimes the camera is a tad slow when capturing, but i'd say maybe 1 out of 12 snaps is failed. this works as a good house cam if you want to keep an eye on your place. These are indoor cameras. they are plugged into a wall. Not sure if they are battery capable. Nothing is perfect, but for the price point I am more than happy. plus I could just set to live and watch it and screen capture if I really needed to. It can be moved! I liek that also. cam itself stays on all the time. plug in the phone cause it does drain the battery on phone if you want to just live watch it all day. If you want to talk, it could work but would give itself away. Get a doorbell one for that if you want your cameras to be or appear hidden. they have toy and pen ones at Walmart online. One is despicable me 3 stuart, and a few pen ones. Those could be good nanny cams. Good luck and I hope this helps people rather than just saying it sucks, or I like it. :D for heavy duty security, get one with a dvr. I also tried a Pilot Digital Wireless Indoor Security Camera with Night Vision and it wouldn't connect to the 5g.

    This cheap security camera is excellent

    To be honest, I bought this camera because at $40 it was the cheapest one on the shelf, so I didn't expect very much. I've only used it one day, so I don't know how long it will last, but so far it's great. The picture is clear and the lens covers a wide angle. It has built in IR lights so you get a good picture in a dimly lit or totally dark room. It has all the features of a high end camera (motion detection, two-way audio, etc), but the best thing is it's super easy to install and set up. It only took me a few minutes. The instructions are very clear and easy to understand. I've had older Internet security cameras that required me to modify settings in my router, forward ports, and either pay a monthly fee or use a third party DNS service, but this camera doesn't require any of that. The free phone app does everything, and it's easy to use. I can monitor a live stream of any activity in my house from anywhere there is Wi-Fi Internet service. And, you can use multiple cameras with the app. If you want a stored record of the video, you don't have to pay for the cloud storage service, you can use an ordinary micro SD card. This camera appears to be very well made and in my opinion it's a real bargain at $40.


    I purchased two cameras at one store and two at a second store. Of the first two I set one up and successfully was able to motion and sound detect and record. Next day I attempted to setup the second. Had a really difficult time getting it to pair. Over an hour of setting up and resetting. After I got it paired I could view including sound but it would never record. I disconnected the first camera so I didn't have any interference and then lost connection to both and was unable to pair or access either. Returned for refund. Went to second store and purchased two more. I opened the first box and it was missing the usb cord. I opened the second box and used the cord from it. Was unable to pair the camera. I connected the second camera and was able to pair, except, it stated it was already paired to a different account. No was to assign it to me. Once again I returned both for refund. 4 cameras and none worked.
    Worthless waste of resources. Camera is okay but with this joke of an app it's pointless Support and app are unhelpful. When I finally got the set up working, the app kept disconnecting the camera. It worked with phone and camera on wifi, but trying to access it via cellphone connection did not work. had to reboot camera and it worked. but who wants to reboot the camera each time and only use it when you're at home? defeats the purpose of monitoring from work or vacation. Website offers NO help. Very inadequate.

    Momentum Dual Band WiFi Camera Review

    I bought one at WM to test the technology. I had high expectations on a $39.99 cam. The user guide is generic such is their online support - if you run into problems do not expect too much of support. The user guide states that it has two modes: motion alert and video mode. The motion alert has 4 sensitivity levels (high, medium, medium high, low, off). Depending on the room or area the cam is installed at you will spend considerable effort on finding the right balance between the motion sensor sensitivity and the expected movement. The cam requires a persistent and strong WIFI connection (5-4 bars). it is prompt to disconnections or randomly fails to record events. Events can be stored in online for a fee or locally on a SD card. If you are looking for a cheap device to monitor a non critical area or room this cam can definitely is a plus. To monitor critical areas get yourself a complete wired security system with a DVR.
