4.0 out of 5 stars Worked as described but first item defective 18 May 2014

I am at a loss why being asked to review this as purchased by my partner? His comments follow:
First item received promptly but would not connect to server and status LED did not light at all. Replacement item took much longer before arriving but was simple to set up and works as described. Set up in porch and IR LEDs switched off as reflects on glass.
Support excellent as any queries answered promptly (weekdays only). Expensive when compared to similar available but free 7 day Cloud storage the reason for selection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy Easy Easy 19 Jun 2014

Very Easy to setup even in Wireless mode. Good picture and great access on the web. There are some wait time for loading the video and some in playing what is recorded. I have two running and have no conflict at all.
NEEDS: To be able to record when you want to. Able to have a friend login and not have all the setting available to them, just what the cameras sees.
Excellence tech support. Thinking about buying another one for outside.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you need a guard for your mail or your home buy it!...or let 'em keep stealing your stuff! 5 May 2014

Great ...and I mean great way to keep on top of your mail, yard, car and anything else needing monitoring!..Just remember during installation to make sure to click on your computer's clock to check it's time zone settings. I had the correct time but the wrong time zone settings and so the camera wouldn't give me the right time. The tech support guy figured it out for me and now it is up and watching for my mail box thief!....Night vision is great and the resolution is just as crisp as it can be.... even through my front room window.

I can easily view my camera on my phone. Unfortunately, it doesn't work on my Kindle Fire. Hopefully they will update it to work on the Kindle Fire.
