No good you can only watch it if your on the same network ( ie ) in the same house,
your better off using an old phone that's got a camera and downloading ATHOME camera
and its free you can watch from anywhere.
The reviews seem to indicate that you can view remotely, just a little tricky to setup.

Manual states it can be accessed from anywhere in world via the clever dog app, with no requirement to purchase fixed IP etc.
Works great after the latest software... Good picture. Maybe a little sensitive as received too many alerts. Moved house changed to android and still worked , back to iPhone logged in seamlessly. A bargain
Does anyone know if this has to be plugged in whilst in use or do you charge it please?

Get very poor reviews on some sites to the extent people bin them. Pay what you get for I suppose.

13a USB?!?!?


same as a phone usb charger with a 3 pin plug
Also have it in orange as well as the blue pictured
USB standard is 500ma even a ipad pro only needs a 2A charger what he/her is asking is were did you get 13A or are you thinking of a 230v plug with a 13a fuse in it ?

Regular phone chargers are around 1A-3A. They don't have 13A fuses either...

13a USB?!?!?



This didn't come with the required 13a usb cable so I had to solder one together out of an old phone charger and a kettle lead. It lasted about 10 seconds before bursting into flames and burning a decent sized hole in the floor and wall. 1 star.
It is tricky to set up. Took a few goes and needed a youtube video. Once set up it works fine. Mine needed to be in the same room as the router. I can watch it over the web at work, no problem.
This could be quite a useful thing to have on hand. Thank you, OP.

It used to be common to call a standard UK wall socket a 13 amp socket because that was the max fuse rating of the BS 1363 plug, so a standard UK 3 pin plug became known as a 13 amp plug.
Because before BS 1363 we had 2, 5 or 15 amp plugs.

Hear it much less these days though.

WRONG - I have this camera and that is wrong - you can see it anywhere in the world

Mine works fine, if people are binning them, then I'll have them :-)

Only HUGE issue is - it is useless at night if used to see through a glass window
took at this price. do the motion activation and night mode work ?
I have one in the garage. just use an old phone charger to power it. motion detection works fine. night mode gives good image quality. it doesn't work if you point it out of a window at night, the it just reflects and the camera picks up the reflection. most cameras will though. my home WiFi is we my phone is O2 I have no problem viewing the alerts remotely on my phone. you can even talk via the built in speaker which has made the wife jump a couple of times. I have now grown up, but still have an aversion to capital letters. well worth the money.

why does this comment have so many likes?

it's an IP camera, yes most providers in the UK use dynamic IP addresses but unless your connection drops daily it wont be an issue

there are ways around that anyway though and most people with even basic internet knowledge will be able to connect to this from anywhere

the "wifi version doesn't support 3/4g" bit means that you can't connect this directly to 3/4g it must be connected to your wifi network (like most IP cameras)

just like a normal ipad doesn't support 3/4g, as they only have wifi but the 3/4g ipad versions do

it doesn't need an IP address you log into the camera using your email address

What will happen is if the company in China that run the system goes bust then the key features will stop working
The most annoying thing about this camera is they won't allow you to turn off the night vision LED's - so useless when pointed out of a window at night

everything online / connected to your network needs an IP address

plugged in.
I have it and get on well with it. I can yell at the dog to get off the sofa when I am at work and watch the hubby sit n scratch his nuts when he has been on nights It's a cheap in house camera, you get what you pay for,

Sorry but the more you comment, the less you seem to know what you're on about. It's an IP camera and can be accessed from anywhere with a little no how.

wouldn't bother I can't even get it to work using android..

​nail varnish should do the trick. just paint some on the led.

This is not correct. All devices on the home network will be allocated an IP address.
You can then port forward this to your external address.
The vendor provides service is not needed so if they go bust this will work fine (just not their service which is not needed for remote view)
so what exactly does the camera do when it detects motion? a phone alert?

yes you get alerts on your phone.

yes you get alerts on your phone.



And what form does that alert take? Is it a still or video of what caused the motion, or is it just a text saying "The camera has detected motion" and i'd have to immediately log in to see what it was or if I didn't then i'd miss it?
You get a still photo alert. Brilliant piece of kit!
