I’ve got 4 of these and I’m really Impressed with how they distinguish people, cars and animals. They include a floodlight too which can be set to come on for people, animals or vehicles. They also allow configurable detection zones so I’ve set mine so the floodlight doesn’t turn on for pedestrians on the pavement of animals on our property but does done on as soon as a person or car crosses the boundary. I don’t know of any other cameras that can distinguish people and animals like this and it saves electricity. The cameras record to SD card (up to 32GB but only 8GB supplied) and optionally FTP server, DropBox or Apple iCloud and they support Apple Homekit and can be managed a very good Netatmo app. Unlike most cameras they don’t need an annual subscription for online storage so although the initial cost is high they can be much cheaper overall. Recordings and live camera view can be played from any of those sources, at home and away. Lots of very positive reviews on-line but you’ll need good WiFi to reach outdoor cameras. They seem like a very good company and release frequent updates. I’ve had two fail within the first year but had no problem getting a refund and I promptly bought two more. Take care if upgrading the SD card - you need to use special lube to keep the water from the electronics - see the Netatmo website for details. There is a more expensive variant with a loud alarm but it can only be triggered manually, it automatically. It may be useful if you see an intruder while you’re away but realistically it is of little benefit.
