It has been a little cheaper as you correctly noted but this is still a good price. The other option is to wait and it's not one of the things you want to wait for a little saving for! Image and build quality are excellent and very simple to setup.
Good camera, I’ve had mine for about 6 months now and never had a issue. I run mine on a sd card but did use the cloud free version. Does the same thing really. I think I paid around £50 delivered from amazon 🏽

Agreed. I’ve had mine up outdoors aiming at my front door for over a year now. Very very good! Almost instant alert on you phone from the app when there is activity in your selected area! A lot better after the update. Mr burglar could of broken in made a brew and had away my contents of the house b4 it let you know last time!! Massive improvement!

Which phone do you have? Alerts on my Galaxy S9 are usually non existent until I open the app
They need to update the software on its full of bugs and so hard to go back to check previous footage.
If anyone figures out another reset method other than he button underneath the small flap at the bottom, I'd be most grateful. Mine appears to be a pin sized dent, where the reset button should be, but it's part of the plastic housing and doesn't depress.

There have been continual issues with Android for some reason but I have iOS as well.

I think like all home security, you need to use it in tandem with others - we have door sensors running off the Panasonic Hub system and a Ring doorbell too. When we were having building work done, this was a godsend. End of the day, if someone is determined to break in, a camera probably won't deter them.
I have this and its BRILLIANT. Not 2 days ago it managed to record a slow speed crash outside my house that one of my friends was involved in. Fortunately it will provide the proof she needs that it was not her fault.
Heated.

Iphone 10xr. I get notifications within 5 seconds every time. Worked well just 30 mins ago. I was I’m back garden and had a delivery. I got an alert and managed to catch the guys b4 he drove off.
I would always recommend going with POE (power over ethernet) cameras. You need to run a cable for power anyway (unless you go for a battery/solar powered camera for true wireless) so you may as well use ethernet. That way you will get a much stronger connection and be able to live stream in the highest quality that your camera can support (which was one of the main features I was looking for when choosing security cameras).

This might not suit everyone though depending on where your power outlets/routers are.
I have this at my front door, along with various other indoor Yi cams. It is good and works just about, but the cable is far too short imo. I have had to use an usb extension cable and this comes with lots of potential issues. As it is powered via this USB cable, when such things as the microphone is activated and there is a requirement for more power it can crash the camera. This may well be a faulty unit I have however, I have also purchased 3 different USB extension cables, the last of which seems to work better than the others. I could have returned it but it was a pain to install so I've just left it as I can view it no problem, just unable to use the mic function for the most part.

Do you have a recommendation for a good POE camera? I've been searching and searching and there seems to be too much choice!!!🤒

This is great this one. I have 45/50mbps And it connects great. Quality is pretty decent too. More than adequate.

How big was the drill hole which you would've required for threading the ginormous* (imo) usb's moulded housing through the wall, please? I still haven't bothered mounting it because of this
One of the reasons I opted for this is the yi hack firmware you can flash to the camera, which gives you a few added functionalities

I have these. Got them in January for £88. I tried at least four different wireless cameras before and these are by far the best. There may be better ones out there but I can't actually fault these ones. The mobile app is brilliant and the desktop app is even better. Both have so many features and settings to play with and it all just works. I currently have them set to 2560x1440 resolution at 25fps and it streams perfectly. Even over the internet when I'm away from home. Also Reolink's customer service is great too.

Looks like you can currently get them for a shade under £100 for the pair with the voucher applied. Well worth it imo.

Where do you put the SD card? Is it on the camera itself? My concern is, once the memory card is full. I have to physicially go to the camera and remove it. It would be good if it was on the power supply?

Micro card goes where the two screws are located on underside of camera
you can reformat the card using the app, no need to remove it from camera

btw, paid £40 each
for both of my 2 on Amazon about 6 months ago

38597126-1Tqm2.jpgIt has been on offer quite a few times. Got it when it was £39.99 and whilst I do think it functions well enough, it has had a couple of issues which have annoyed me a little.

Firstly, the USB connector is huge, so should you drill through the wall to accommodate this the hole would then be very oversized for the cable itself.
Secondly, but maybe not a common fault (still, one which I have personally found) is an issue with the sound. There is a constant 'choppy/buzzing' overlay of noise which developed a few months after purchase.

Overall, I haven't felt that the price really justified it's worth but I'm happy to be told otherwise by people whom have had a better experience.

Your broadband service doesn't affect how the camera performs over your home network since the data just goes directly into your router then to your device, nothing actually comes from the internet. I have 70+mbps internet connection but all the wireless cameras I tried streamed in low res and no more than about a dozen fps, and that was when I was testing them and I was sitting in the same room right next to my router.

Perhaps you have a better router/home network than me, or this particular camera is just better than any of the ones I tried but I just couldn't get a decent live feed no matter what.

Once the card fills up it should automatically start to save over the oldest recordings.

I was concerned about this - so I upgraded the power adapter to an anker one - I think their plug is only 1amp thats supplied, I have an 3 meter extension cable on mine and no issues

Yeah I tried the plugs as well but it didn't make much difference. I have a 5m extension. I'm still happy with it, it works for what I need it for and like I say, mine may well have a fault that is causing it to drop out. Think I paid £39.99 as well so can't complain really.

No that would clearly be over the internet but the camera still has to send the data to your router first and in my experience with wireless cameras they just can't do it fast enough to enable live streaming in hd or better at a decent frame rate.

...I have 2 off these already mounted having only 12V power lead on them and bought the 3rd one yesterday, so it seems like Amazon messed up with photos allocation, unless manufacturer have changed its build - I shall let you know once the 3rd one arrives

Btw, mines look like on below photo from one of the reviews, so one needs 10-ish mm big hole in the wall to feed cable through.
