Piper is 1 of the spouse and children now. I was in two minds about getting a security camera, but have a patio door shut to a street so always a little bit involved someone might snoop, or get in. I don’t regret it, but use the camera and application for much additional than security. As a parent of adolescents, and typically away from home on business enterprise, it allows me know when they get in, or leave the dwelling ether by using the z-wave entrance door sensor, or from the unit alone detecting movement or seem. My youngest does place a hat in excess of it when he has mates spherical, which is good i guess. Aged piper feels like one of the relatives now – and like the rest of us really doesn’t suit a hat.

Superb security and smart home option. I bought piper pursuing some investigation into smart home alternatives obtainable on the sector. Piper seemed to provide a nice harmony of security and home automation, with no every month charges, which was vital. I opted for the piper nv as i felt the night eyesight component of the device was worth further investment decision over the piper classic design. Initially, the camera switching more than to the infrared set off the seem sensor, but a recent app update seems to have rectified this. The evening eyesight mode is fantastic, with whole fish eye viewing in the two night eyesight and standard viewing modes. In conditions of security, this really does the work flawlessly. With audio and movement sensors, you get alerted as before long as some thing takes place, which will really give piece of thoughts when on holiday break, absent at weekends, and many others. The app is great, incredibly quick to use with procedures that permit you to change on security modes these as the alarm remaining established off when motion is detected. The icing on the cake is it truly is z-wave performance. Becoming equipped to convert on my lights (lamps plugged into z-wave smart plugs) as shortly as i wander in the door is great. When i am away, i can also established schedules for my lamps to transform on as an intruder deterrent. I also program to invest in door sensors for entry factors which will then enable me to be alerted as before long as the front doorway opens – good for recognizing when the children get home from school safely and securely. I am certain as engineering developments, there will be tons more i can do with this element.

Piper classic – dependable, expandable and very adaptable. This little gadget is fantastic. I purchased this having looked via all the options in element. I really originally went for a inexpensive choice which seemed like it must suit the invoice, but after two months of unreliable operation from the el cheapo gadget, i went for my original initial selection. I went for the classic because it was the selling price i experienced in my mind, but examine on. I essentially now purchased an further nv. But this usually takes absolutely nothing away from the classic, rather the opposite. The classic has designed me so joyful with the product i’m investing much more cash into the business. Why is it so superior?the reliability. I’ve found a few opinions say they had trouble placing it up, signal dropping, making use of the app. I’ve seen none of these issues. The system and the application has experienced numerous updates nevertheless so it may well be that these problems are addressed now as i experienced no complications at all with this matter so significantly ( a 7 days into the product glued to it most of the time). It took its time updating when i 1st unboxed it, but at any time since, its been perfect. Its swift to use, adaptable and expandable using any z-wave sensor or extender.

Piper Classic Smart Home Security Camera and Monitoring with Alarm and HD Video – White : I purchased this device 2 days before leaving for a month in the us. Set up was tricky (for me) but i contacted piper via the website and the issues were resolved on the spot. During our absence our neighbours checked the house daily, every visit was recorded by the device and i was immediately notified in the states on my cell phone. Each visit resulted in a 30 second video on file which i could access via the phone and you can also monitor activity via the device in real time. On one occasion i held a conversation with our neighbour via the device and the audio quality was fine. Very impressed with this purchase and will certainly expand the system as and when i can.

    Not worth the full rrp, but a good buy at a discount price. .Image quality not as high as i would have hoped, although the pan/scan functionality works very well. Lost connection for no apparent reason once in the month i have had it. Recommended at the discount prices amazon were using, but not at full rrp.

    Piper nv is such a sleek and classy looking product – it looks great in my home. It also works fantastically. I can’t believe how clear the night vision is and i love being able to keep an eye on my dog while i’m at work.

    Really smart security system. I purchased piper after thoroughly investigating the multiple smart home security systems that are available on the market at the moment. I ultimately went with piper as it seemed the most intelligent solution on the market. In built sensors, an ear piercingly loud intruder siren and the security modes all make this device a really comprehensive security system. Add into the equation the z-wave functionality and the ability to expand the system with plugs, door sensors and other z-wave devices and you really start to transform your home. Set up was a piece of cake and so far i’ve had no connection issues at all.

    All round top quality security solution, plus smart home features for the normal person, with no extra monthly costs. After much research i installed a piper nv at home since it seemed to be the clear winner in terms of overall functionality and included services for the price. I found the product very easy to set-up on my home wi-fi router and the app was also very simple to understand and use. Within 15 minutes i had rules set for home, office and vacation modes and i had tested the movement and sound sensors to check video clips and to see if the messaging to my phone was working. There is so much choice and i tried them all, including a live telephone call mode which was cool. It gave me real confidence that i can rely on piper for security at home when i am away. I then went on to install a z-wave door/window sensor and a z-wave smart switch, both from the recommended foxx project range. This was also a pleasant easy experience. So within a short time at the weekend, i had installed a smart security solution, which is monitoring the main front door, giving me video camera protection based on sound and movement, plus control over a light in the house. All fully installed by me with no ongoing costs and no monthly charges.

    Good when working isp issues. Piper is great but between piper and my isp i am unable to maintain a reliable or usable connection. One piper nv couldn’t or wouldn’t connect via my isp and replacement was intermittent. Piper support is great but when the issue seems to be the port settings on the router and the isp (bt) it simply isnt working for me.

      Piper classic – reliable, expandable and very adaptable. This little gadget is outstanding. I bought this having looked through all the options in detail. I actually originally went for a cheap alternative which seemed like it should fit the bill, but after two weeks of unreliable operation from the el cheapo device, i went for my original first choice. I went for the classic because it was the price i had in my mind, but read on. I actually now bought an additional nv. But this takes nothing away from the classic, quite the opposite. The classic has made me so happy with the product i’m investing more money into the company. Why is it so good?the reliability. I’ve seen a few reviews say they had trouble setting it up, signal dropping, using the app. I’ve seen none of these problems. The device and the app has had several updates though so it might be that these issues are addressed now as i had no problems at all with this thing so far ( a week into the device glued to it most of the time).

    This system, so far, has been leagues better than the broken and buggy samsung smartthings mess that i had to send back. For example the piper nv worked straight away after a firmware update, and the app is very easy to understand and configure. The samsung failed hard in both these areas, so it was a pleasant relief to experience zero issues on getting started. The app is quick to open and connecting remotely to the camera is very fast. The night vision is good enough to get a decent picture, but don’t expect enough detail on faces past about 12 feet. I have this camera in my small upstairs office, so that will not be a problem for me. In daylight the detail picks up of course. This gives you about 20 feet of range detail that could be used to identify someone. I have yet to add any other extensions to this system as i am paranoid after my smartthings debacle.
