    If the caps in the title weren't clear enough, i'll go further and say this product does not belong in an apple store. at first, the camera was barely adequate (for the 120 bucks) and wifi connectivity was fair. then, a few app updates ago, the refresh rate slowed to a crawl. it displays about one frame every four seconds in real time. useless, utterly useless.

    Izon review

    • Written by from loughrea

    Have the product for at least 5 months, but never got it to work despite a lot of attempts. Support were to send me a new one, but that never happened either. A disappointing experience from start to end. I want my money back!

    Not a serious webcam for the money

    • Written by from San Mateo

    Optics are poor unless you have strong sunlight. Network reliability is spotty; you are at the mercy of Stem's remote server and whatever code they decide to test day to day. There is a limit of twenty five events per day, and so all you need is a bumblebee to get interested in your cam and boom, nothing but twenty five bumblebee clips for the entire day (real life story). You cannot opt to store clips on your home machine. You must store them at Stem, and they have not realized the potential in selling you extra clips per day, or even In just keeping only the most recent 25 clips per 24 hour period. About once a week, I find my cam is unreachable for no known reason. Force-quitting their application often cures it, not always. The installation either works flawlessly or fails completely in ways that are not well explained - if by chance you do not broadcast your WiFi station name, for one common example. Eventually Stem will stop their server and this will become useless, as there is no way to use it without their service. If you want to use it for security, it will be useless if your internet is unavailable - again because you cannot store events directly to your local, home machine. Some things about it are actually quite clever, but it falls short in the end. It is, at best, something with much more potential than it actually realizes. Nothing a firmware update could not fix, but that is not promised.

    I have two of these and they are fantastic. I did have a slight problem when they changed from using you tube to their own cloud to download the videos to but their customer service is great. I emailed them my problem and they called me back within 24 hours and helped me solve the problem.

    I use my camera as a security device so I know the builders a d lodgers keep out of my bedroom. When their is noise or movement I get a notification and the izon records it automatically.

    I love it.

    My opinion is that there are some software glitches and customer service has been no help. One camera worked reasonably well, the second didn't.

    Works fine in Neath, South Wales

    • Written by from NEATH

    IZon is a great little device which does exactly what it says on the tin. I don't have great Internet either. My upload speed is about 0.75mb and download about 5.75mb, so pretty average.

    I have had no problems gaining access to the camera from my iPad and iPhone.

    Nice product, recommended.

    Needs Improvement

    • Written by from Gearhart

    I have two iZon cameras, one Lorex, and one Dropcam. All on the same network. Of all the Dropcam is performing the best. iZon is slooooooow, lags, slow connect, an even can happen and not even be captured. They also drop off my network far more than the other cams. Optics are very poor. The good thing about the iZon is the design. That is probably why they got a spot in the Apple store. If they keep the design and improve software and optics it will be a good product. At this time it still needs some work.

    To install it and making it work was as simple as buying it.

    • Written by from Amsterdam

    Amazing how easy this was to install! I installed it to watch my home's front door. I did not expect it to work immediately on the other side of town, where I work, but it did. PERFECTLY! Fine image quality in good light situations, reasonable in lesser. Truly does what I hoped for, for the bucks, the app is great too, clear and functional. Instantly operational. A big WOW experience here!

    No good

    • Written by from Top Camp

    Very difficult to set up initially, but eventually got it working. However, it then "locked up" after a week. After going through the the process of re-setting it up again, it no longer sends alerts, (checked all settings). Very disappointed as I had planned on buying a few more if they worked.

    No problems

    After reading some dodgy reviews I took the plunge and I bought an iZone camera as we were going away on holiday to New Zealand for a month over the Christmas period and thought it was a cool way of keeping an eye on the house. The iZONE worked just fine although initially we had 70 alerts for the first couple of days until i realised I had the sensitivity settings cranked up too high. We just logged on changed the settings and all was fine this was done from our hotel in New Zealand. We checked the house every couple of days during the very snowy weather in the UK. Also when our neighbours came in to clear our post mountain we watched on our iPad as they gave us a cheery wave and wished us a Merry Christmas. So a very positive experience for us with this product and would recommend it highly.

    Easy to setup and works great!!!

    • Written by from Boston

    I'm not sure why there are a bunch of negative reviews about this camera. It's worked flawlessly since we've had it and we haven't needed to reboot it once. Setup requires reading the instructions but it's really strait forward. We love it and plan on getting another one. The app for the iPhone works great!!!!!

    Waste of money - incompatible & unstable!

    • Written by from Hong Kong

    1. Poor video quality.
    2. Official website asks you to disable MAC address filtering. Why should we compromise our network?
    3. Takes a while to setup cuz it does NOT "just work"!
    4. The package and monitor itself does not indicate it's MAC address so I had a hell-of-a-time finding out what it was. If only they told users right off the bat that you cannot have filtering of MAC addresses that would've been nice.
    5. Because I am not IT support for my own home, I cannot sit at home to set this up, by the time I tested & tried this and realized it did not deliver, Apple told me it was too late.

    No Support for a product that does not work most of the time

    • Written by from mississauga

    Product works for a few hours and then needs to be unplugged and attached again later to work properly once again. Product support explains how busy they are but will get back to you and they never do. Company should be ashamed of themselves

    It works

    • Written by from christchurch

    I actually have to say this works. the setup was not too bad, the camera works as it says, I must have bucked the trend. No problems with it yet and i have had it almost a year, sits there doing its job quite happily. Ok So the app is not the greatest however it works. I am ok iOS 6 with all apple equipment.

    So disappointing - avoid this one

    • Written by from Winchester

    Looks great on paper but in reality it's not at all. Easy to setup but chugs with the image, poor quality in good light and totally unusable in the dark even though it says it can work in as little light as a child's night light. Have sold mine after a few weeks of trying it out. I would avoid at all costs.

    I bought this product thinking it would do 3 things.

    1.) Simple to Set up
    2.) Send Alerts to my iphone
    3.) Would record video / photos & upload

    I received the camera and it was easy to set up. However, the camera;

    a.) Does not sense motion activity & Send Alert to your iphone
    b.) Does not upload video to view

    I tried loads of times. The menu is really simple so there is no danger of user error. It simply does not work. I wanted it to, but it doesn't.

    You cannot upload to youtube. You cannot view videos of motion detection on Izon / Stem's server as the camera doesn't detect motion.

    What a sham. Apple please note: people buy your products because they provide a solution that is simple to use and reliable. The product is not reliable.

    Do Not Buy!!!!!

    Work on some router

    • Written by from London

    I bought 5 camera and was excited to use them, but it hit me with disappointment at first, when I set all five camera with BT infinity home hub all 5 work but after a few hours, one by one it started to loose the connection, it's been like this for the past 12 hours reconnecting and resetting all five camera which was annoying, so I plug in my airport express as a bridge router, got all 5 connected been using it for the past 12 hours not even a single one looses it connection, though it has a fifteen second delay on live stream, but as for infinity which keeps losing connection on live stream was a 1 to 2 second delay, overall I would recommend this product if you have the patient to figure out the problem when connected to some wireless router and try to figure a solution to prevent connection problems luckily my airport express save the day, otherwise I would just return them back, hope this review helps.

    Works great now

    • Written by from North Shore

    I found the whole experience quite frustrating and I was ready to drive over the camera with my car and finish it off with a hammer and then 'presto' away it works and is accessible from anywhere easily with a great picture - I'm now impressed by it.
