Nice cameras and idea, however you can't place them wherever you'd like as they do horrible in areas not well lit. Play back is only 1 camera at a time and there is about a 5 second delay. Would of been better if D1 and night vision capable.
I’ve been researching video security systems for our home for the past year. I became very disappointed after reading many less-than-satisfactory product reviews on name-brand wired and wireless systems, until I discovered the NETGEAR VueZone system. I purchased the VueZone 2-camera system and added two NETGEAR VZMS2050-10000S Outdoor Shells to my order. I have since added four additional NETGEAR VueZone VZCM2050-100NAS motion-detection cameras and two additional outdoor shells.
In short, this is a SUPERBLY SIMPLE yet HIGHLY EFFECTIVE motion-detection video security system with an elegant interface using the NETGEAR VueZone service plan. The VueZone system uses an amazingly simple pairing and set-up process. Moreover, it’s a completely flexible system given its wireless interface. I have easily moved cameras to optimize motion-detection and viewing. My wife and I monitor our home using the beautiful VueZone iPhone/iPad apps, and on my Macbook Pro using the NETGEAR VueZone web site on my Safari browser. And unlike so many other security systems, VueZone works beautifully on an Apple computer! My entire system is controlled through the VueZone web site on my Safari browser and/or through the VueZone iPhone/iPad app. My co-workers have been amazed how well I can remotely view our home using my iPad.
The fully adjustable motion detection system works beautifully. While I find the resolution on the 320X240 and 640X480 video modes to be too low for security purposes, the 1600X1200 time-lapse video mode provides excellent quality recorded images. Accordingly, I have my VueZone system set to provide 10-second 1600X1200 time-lapse video recordings on each of my outdoor cameras whenever motion is detected.
I initially subscribed to the VueZone Premiere level service plan. I travel extensively and absolutely love the real-time e-mail alerts with the attached video clip. I’m upgrading to the VueZone Elite level service plan to allow for several additional cameras as I plan to expand my VueZone system to cover the interior of our home.
I highly recommend the VueZone system. While it’s not meant to be a 24/7 video streaming system it works brilliantly as a motion-detection system, with live monitoring on an as-needed basis.
