Will this only record using motion sensor or can you turn it on manually to record even when no motion. 27 Feb 2015
you can watch live, motion record only
Can you set it to trigger recordings / notifications if there is a noise? So audio triggered like the motorola scout 83. 5 Feb 2015
No only responds to movement!
Can this be set-up as a "wired" connection only and not to use WiFi, i.e. plug in the Ethernet cable and that's it ? 20 Jan 2015
Hello yes you definitely can
What do you mean linked? Works fine on my phone/ipad via 4g
Thee camera recording will not work when either: 1) shutting down power/fuse (there is no internal battery), 2) disabling broadband (no SD card) ? 13 Jan 2015
This is a brilliant camera but does need mains power for the actual camera and broadband. I'm not sure there are any similar devices that would work with no power to the building. If you are worried about thieves then by the time they see, work out what this is and disable it you would have been sent an image.
Yes, you can turn it on or off, watch live view, archives or turn notifications off or on from your smart phone.
quality settings? I have an upload speed of 0.3 mbps and they recommend an upload speed of 0.5mbps... So can I adjust the quality settings to suit? 9 Jan 2015
Hi Matthew P. (1)HomeMonitor HD cameras can only be set via its software settings. So things are limited. (2)However, I've just looked into the settings page on one of my cameras. There is a choice between High Quality and Standard Quality (for Video Archive and LiveView) modes. Yet it doesn't specify MBPS per each mode. If 0.5mbps recommendation is for Standard Mode, then I probably agree with John (previous answer). Just a logical thought. Google/Yahoo search: How much bandwidth does Skype need? You will see that a minimum bandwidth requires is 0.3, 0.5 for high quality and 1.5 for HD. I truly believe that Standard Quality recording/live view might be able to work with your 0.3 upload limit...as long as there isn't any other traffic and you truly do have a solid 0.3mbps upload speed. It is worth giving it a try, if this is the only or best option for your security goals.
Can you have two way conversations?. In other words can you call the dog to get off the sofa or inform intruders that they are being recorded? 19 Oct 2014
No. The camera has no loudspeaker facilities. The dog will stay on the sofa and the intruder will not perform a dance.
