    Dropcam

    I would rate this camera a 4.5 stars....had a few glitches when the free trial of recording ended and one other disconnect, but the customer service people were great and had the camera running quickly. It has met our expectations and we are considering getting another.

    Best product of its kind on the market.

    • Written by from Boulder City

    The drop cam performs as advertised. The picture is sharp and the colors are true. The set up is quick and easy not like similar products that create a nightmare trying to connect to the internet. Very Apple centric and not a Windows product with Apple compatibility as an afterthought. Good support with a user friendly website and informative forums. I would have given the product five stars if it were not for the additional charge for data storage for additional cameras. Data storage for one camera is comparatively expensive and charging more for additional cameras is just greedy. Good value and quality well worth the slightly expensive price.

    The Good and The Bad...honestly.

    • Written by from Glendora

    First, the bad...which is the most important.

    Does it work reliably?
    The answer is NO. As of this date, it doesn't matter who else has posted reviews, the DropCam is NOT 100% reliable! I can say this with confidence because of others' experience whom I'm working through the same issues. The DropCam CVR servers/network causes multiple drop-outs. This knocks the camera AND recording offline. These drop-outs can range from 30 seconds to permanent.

    There's no mechanical Pan/Tilt/Zoom; any adjustment is done digitally, and must be within the current frame. Artifact become pretty severe at full zoom which is around 8x by their claim.

    The microphone (for talking through the camera) function is virtually worthless due to extreme network lag of at least 10 seconds. Recording is fine, however, since it's synced with the video.

    This is a SINGLE CAMERA monitoring system; one at a time. So, even if you have multiple cams, and use the iPad, you'll only be watch LIVE on one camera. Plus, at $200 each, I don't know how many people would want to install 4 or 5 of these.

    As for the good...

    The technical support staff seems to be very busy, probably handling all the latency issues, but is very courteous and fairly responsive. They seem to want to address the network issues as hardware, but...we'll see.

    This is a very nice camera with a very good picture, wide angle, and REALLY GOOD IR for night-vision!

    The motion-sensing works very well as does the sound-triggers.

    The software-both iOS and MAC-is decent albeit very basic. The UI is pretty and ormal and takes some getting used to in order to navigate.

    The setup is near perfect; about as simple as you can get.

    Range is "ok"; not quite as strong of a receiver as an iOS or Laptop, but not too bad.

    It's powered by a USB cable, which is kind of good. It means a fatter cable than necessary for just power, but it serves as the setup cable as well...which isn't needed except for setup. You can use their power adapter...or, you could use any other USB source such as a battery-pack, laptop, etc. This is useful for locations that don't have a plug, but limited to battery life. This little camera gets pretty warm, so I'm guessing the current draw is pretty heavy.

    The design is cool, efficient, and the quality looks near perfect.
