A pretty very good system but could be enhanced. Obtained this a handful of months back and mounted exterior pointing at my private driveway, where we park the vehicles. Positives- really straightforward to configure and established up- quite simple to use from personal computer, iphone, ipad- very dependable (only experienced to reset it as soon as in 5-six weeks, and i feel it would have sorted by itself out)- constantly will get a powerful sign- extremely uncomplicated to administer remotely via the internet interface- pretty respectable image each by working day and by evening (this is extremely remarkable truly). Whilst more resolution would be welcome of coursenegatives- the energy cable and the mounting program. To mount this on an exterior wall you have to drill a gap as a result of the wall straight driving it, and run possibly a energy-over-ethernet or the 12v electric power cable by that hole. I do not have a poe router, so i had to operate the electric power cable. Drill a minor hole and pull the cable by way of?indeed, would be, if the electrical power cable (which is challenging fixed to the electricity source so it can only go by means of one particular way) did not have a fantastic big mounted ‘magnet’ on it all around three inches from the finish. So you either have to make a substantial hole all the way by way of which could not go away enough wall around it to resolve the mount, or else try to drill a broader channel only on one facet of the brick, more than enough to accommodate the ‘magnet’ aspect way, and get the socket apparent on the other facet. This turns a five minute work into a 30 moment inconvenience.

I bought residence check and discovered to be outstanding camera. Image high quality is pretty great and night time. I purchased household keep track of and identified to be brilliant camera. Photo quality is pretty good and night time eyesight is good.

Great cameras, extremely advise. . Pros:i like the good quality of these cameras. Hooking up to the wireless was easy. The set up is quite straightforward and i experienced them up and managing in minutes. The remote access is superb, reside look at and playback. Cons:the sounds filter on the power lead was a bit of an challenge. I drilled a gap by means of outside the house wall (approx. 18′) but mainly because the filter is only about 3′ from the conclude, the gap you have to drill is substantial. I ended up cutting in the wire and extending it involving the conclude and the filter. At night time, and i expect this is an situation with all cameras, you typically get a cobweb which reveals up white at night.

Y-cam HomeMonitor HD Pro – Wireless Outdoor Security Camera with Free Online Recording & Motion Alerts : Best system on the market at this price level but with 2 criticisms. . I have had one internal cam and one external cam for a few years. The internal cam is probably the most reliable for alerts as i can train the cam onto an area where nothing is going to move unless it is a burglar. You will still have to be careful to avoid moving shadows when the sun comes out as this will trigger an alert. Quality is reasonable as any interloper will be fairly close to the cam. The outside cam is another matter entirely. Despite playing with the sensitivity settings, it is regularly triggered by cobwebs drifting across the lens. Are there really that many spiders?. This means you cannot use the alarm-to-email facility. The quality is not good considering this is listed as hd.

    Great cameras and easy to set up, i have however fount the motion detection a bit hit and miss. Customer service is excellent, they are very quick to respond and very helpful. I have five of these cameras and all work well, especially one which we have in an empty property which works in conjunction with the burglar alarm, ie when it triggers we can look and see if there is a problem.

        Very good camera and seller. . This camera is very solid in look and feel. The setup was quite easy even for a novice like me. Unfortunately my camera developed a fault but the after sales service was first class including phone calls and remote assistance. Suffice to say the camera was u/s so they sent me another one with no quibble. First class company to deal with. Back to the camera, the picture when it was working was excellent.

    Great camera system, and great after support. . I had purchased two outdoor cams, and installed them myself, using poe some 45 meters from the house the perimeter of my fence line, this caused me numerous problems, more to do with the cable connections. After a ton of email tennis the problem was sorted, i can only thank them for there and guidance which eventually sorted the issue out and both cameras are working great,, great quality, really happy. A certain antony fernandez was very helpful through out the process so many thanks to him.

    Good hd camera, on the rear of the property, to compliment my y-cam hd bullet on the front of the property. Slightly disappointed that you cannot, unlike the hd bullet, monitor the camera live via software like i-spy or y-cam multilive. You can watch live via home monitor website, but it kicks you off after 15 minutes. If you like to watch live pictures on your pc monitor etc. Suggest you go for the bullet.

      My third y- cam camera ,we had purchased other products in the past but this was beyond our expectations. With ease of use and flexibility. I intend to purchase a further two. After being twice burgled we were beginning to feel insecure with our home. I now have the confidence to go away on holiday with the full knowledge that our home is being protected both inside and out. I can check at any time 24 – 7 and motion alerts are sent to mobile phones computers or tablets. The cameras were so easy to set up and install,, we were impressed. We also had the knowledge that if required with could contact customer support who were absolutely super efficient. The in-house camera is more than efficient , our two german shepherds are monitored from a kindle or smartphone when left alone (they can be naughty) although a two way intercom here would be helpful i can overcome this by phoning my own home and speaking to the dogs over the answering machine.

    Not just a good product but a great company to deal with. I bought two of these cameras having been that pleased with an initial purchase of one of y-cam’ indoor hd cameras. I have found this to be a great product and fabulous company to deal with. The camera works as advertised and you should have no problems with the professional after sales service proposition. I have found little niggles like wi-fi issues or general advice on set up are all responded to quickly and sumier even arranged a call with me to go through some set up detail and was a great help. Set up is easy (though you do need to hard-wire to your router initially so the unit can ‘learn’ the network but after that it’s wi-fi all the way) and there is a simple app (i used ios version) for controlling the key functions of the camera and receiving alert notifications. Convenience is the big advantage over cheaper cameras (and even others in this price range). There’s no sd card to review or get swiped by intruders. Once their ugly mugs have been shot and uploaded there’s nothing they can do about it. I also like that the company is committed to developing software improvements which, over time, will make your camera even better and keep it up to dateprosvalue for moneysuper efficient after sales/tech supportgood image quality (both daylight and night-vision)smartphone appease of set upconswi-fi connection is limited to your signal strengthhave to re-introduce camera via ethernet if you change router or passwordi have no hesitation in awarding 5 stars.

    I have 2 internal cameras and 1 external camera and i can’t recommend them highly enough. They are very easy to set up and y-cam provide excellent support if it is needed. The image quality is good and i particularly like the fact that the images are stored in the cloud for 7 days without charge.

    Great product with great customer support. The product is worthy of 5 stars, light weight, clear images up to the distance stated, easy to use app (i even managed that bit). Additionalpurchased this camera as it was supposed to be easy to set up and idiot proof – turns out that they had never met me (seems i still need my dads help with diy). Luckily for myself their customer support is absolutely fantastic and they have assisted me no end. Helped me fix any issues i had in a very prompt manner, some companies take days to respond but i had responses within hours (i appreciate it will depend on how busy they are). I even had an email once a few days later asking me if everything was ok.

    I’ve bought a couple of these outdoor cameras, and one of the indoor ones too (all the hd versions). First off, the customer service has been really prompt and efficient. I had a problem with one of my outdoor ones (would not reconnect to the network after the power went down at our place). Lots of helpful, patient advice. This was contrary to my expectation as i’d read a lot of stuff about their customer service being a bit rubbish. As for the product, it’s good. I have mine set so that it records for any slight movement, as it only saves footage to the online account when the cameras are triggered by movement in the area they cover. I switched off ‘notification’ though otherwise you’ll get a warning each time it’s triggered and that can include passing cars etc. The wireless part of things is perhaps a little weaker than hoped for but in fairness we have a slightly complicated network set up with several routers on the go.
