A good price OP - but you should include in the description that the In-app video recording and image capture is a free feature and just requires a Smartphone or Tablet with available storage. However, this feature is different to the Motion Triggered Recording service, which requires a paid subscription plan. So unless you are going to watch the screen permanently all day it may cost you extra to use it.

yes- I have checked them and see no differences ?? both are supporting Hubble app - same resolution, motion triggered recording, 300 degree movement. only difference I see is colour and that scout has two holes at the front where focus has one.
Focus is advertised as baby monitor Scout as Pet monitor. But can Scout be used as baby monitor?
Just bought this last week on the lightning deals. Not impressed so far picture seems to be in black and white and the resolution is poor. Prob just poor in low light. Its going to be returned.

youtube video shows it in colour.. youtube.com/wat…Z4I

I use couple of Focus 66 and I love them. I used IZON before and quality of 66's is much better. B&W picture is in night vision, is decent and much better than my old cameras - I wonder if others have too high expectations or mine are too low? the mic is very sensitive as well - and can pick statics but hey these were fraction of the price I paid for Izon - cheap and cheerful little cameras.

Its probably black and white because the lighting is poor. In dark situations it switches to infra-red.
I got the Moto Blink 83 last week.
I think the only difference is that the Blink line is dedicated for baby monitoring. So has 6 lullabys you can play back. I don't expect to be using that feature. And it's white.
Not a bad product, but picture quality is only acceptable. And any motion triggered recording can only be done to the cloud for a subscription fee. I'd like to be able to use it to record to NAS or other storage targets.

Also got one in the Lightning deals, highly unimpressive. The IR illumination kicks in for anything but the brightest of areas and the field of view is lousy

Yes i use both with the baby monitors screen that came with the baby monitor version camera - plug and play. One for upstairs crib one for down stairs. Works seamlessly. You do have to subscribe for the motion triggered recording though as someone else has pointed out on here, but you can watch on your phone/tablet/PC live footage for free all day every day - we even used it to do a bit of imprompu Skyping when I was away for work one night. Wife had to assist the 6 month old lad though as he didn't know what to do when he heard my voice :-)
Showing as £59 for me.
