  • I can monitor my holiday home now!

    I have a ski chalet in Chamonix and wanted to check if I had problems with flooding in the cellar or if there was snow on the grou I have a ski chalet in Chamonix and wanted to check if I had problems with flooding in the cellar or if there was snow on the ground outside that needed shovelling or grass that needed mowing. The units are neat and are easy to set up. I upgraded my router to a Netgear N600 and these units connected straight away. The firmware also need to be upgraded on setup. I can now see the state of my chalet from the UK with either an iphone app or on a web browser which needed a plugin downloaded.

    When setting up it is important to follow some very simple instructions. It would be nice if these units worked in low light levels which they don't. However if you need cheap, remote monitoring of a holiday home that all connects wireleesly this systems works very well.

    To get full use you need to pay for an additional web service.

    I needed to unplug the cameras a couple of times to restart them in the beginning but all is working fine now and it is stable.

    1. The pack as standard does not allow unlimited monitoring, as in continuous streaming, you only get 5 minutes per session, but unlimited sessions per day. As its your camera, I can't fathom out why your not allowed continuous streaming.
    To enable a better stream(2 hours continuous), you have to pay a fee of $25, again, it's my product, why should I pay more to use it in the way I want, this was not mentioned on the product packaging.

    2. The streaming connection is apparently dependant on your home Internet speed, I have 80mb BT broadband, yet it's still slow to connect.

    3. It tells you to setup a private YouTube account for video recording, and this should be under a setting tab, it's not even there.

    4. Picture quality is poor, I cannot even read a car licence plate from a distance of 5 meters with it.

    5. After turning on the alerts function for motion, it alerts you on your iPhone that there has been motion detected, yet you cannot view these alerts on the iPhone.
    I was able to view the alert list on my iPad mini, but this isn't always the case.

    6. A useful addition would be night capable recording, a small price to add into the device.

    All in all, extremely disappointed with this product, and I shall be seeking a refund unfortunately.

I did not need to worry. Very easy to set up. I can now watch our offices from my iPad anywhere with a wifi connection. Brilliant. It even sends alerts when motion or sounds are detected and can send video to Dropbox. I couldn't ask for more. We are now planning on purchasing more of these to expand the camera network. I could not recommend these more, does exactly what it says on the box.

I wish I'd read some of t Really disappointed in this product and frankly surprised a company like Apple sell it in their stores. I wish I'd read some of these reviews before buying it in an Apple Store.

    It's not too difficult to set up if you're reasonably IT savvy. However, each camera took around 3 - 5 goes to get it to actually work - exactly the same routine each time, the unit just wouldn't connect. If your Wifi ever drops or you want to move them to another plug, you have to go through the whole routine again, which incidentally takes ages. Every few days they drop off the Wifi of there own accord so again you have to go through the set up process and hope that it works after the third go rather than the fifth.

    When it works it's actually not bad for the price. The app is relatively straight forward but not the best. If the camera's didn't disconnect all the time I would probably give it 3 to 4 stars.

    Unfortunately I broke my golden rule of buying a Philips product. Not a mistake I will ever make again.

    Seriously reconsider buying this if you want a reliable security product; only use this for a toy & if you have time to waste.

    I thought twice before purchasing the duo pack given the negative reviews, but went ahead and got it anyway. Like a previous poste I thought twice before purchasing the duo pack given the negative reviews, but went ahead and got it anyway. Like a previous poster I can't understand why people have had negative experiences. The setup procedure was really easy and I had set both cameras up in under 10 mins,. The picture quality is more than adequate for my needs and the both the motion and sound detection features are useful as well as the dropbox recording feature. I've had no problems logging in over 3G. No real downsides from a technical/functional perspective, other than Low level light detection and infra red features would have been helpful, but I can live without that. They are a useful addition to our home security system.

    I guess I have a slight niggle with the price, they are expensive, but then everything associated with Apple seems to attract a premium.
