Why have multiple Pipers? Cannot make individual alerts for every Piper only a global mode(s) Video is no way near HD quality. Not even SD. Look what Alfred can do. Now that is a well designed app. Like other posters have said, get rid of the current app manager and staff. Get people who know what they are doing! They take features away thinking they known best. Give the user choices! Like the old way that Piper used to say, "Piper is Armed." Have in the Settings, use either Voice or Chimes. Etc,etc, etc.
Camera is fantastic. App is decent. This would be 5 stars, but it is crashing a lot on both of my android phones. Seems like turning the phone off and back on while watching the camera live view tends to crash the app. Lots of excellent features in the app. I like the 3-day history of temperature, light, sound, motion. Wish I could export that data out of the app on to my computer. The Z-wave controller works well with a lamp plug-in I got. The IFTTT integration is useful too. Overall, glad I bought this camera.
Will improve as more rules and sensors are certified I figure. June 2016: Like latest version us needlessly obscure with too small print and little colour. Reliability is better overall. Oct. 2017. Anything less than perfection isn't good enough for a security system.
The camera itself is pretty great, but the app has major connection issues. It was basically unusable for 2-3 weeks because the app couldn't connect to the camera. Their last bug fix addressed that for a while, but the issue pops up again from time to time. Not worth buying a camera that you can't connect to or arm/disarm when you want to. I'd reccomend looking for a competing product with better software and support.
Great idea, app is terribly glitchy, inconsistent. I am so disappointed. Camera and app works well for about a year then app tanked, had gotten possibly less reliable. App freezes constantly, have to go to app manager to kill it to get it to work again, black screen, sometimes the sound doesn't work. Terrible, good product product downhill.
Each time that Piper rolls out a new version of their software updates it gets worse and worse. Lost functionality now of camera view so can't see what's going on anymore since this last update. They have failed to keep up with the market and keep up with other manufacturers out there. Overall they have been lacking innovation with new features or products. Had so much potential when I got it a year ago and now regret buying it. If I could go back and do it over I'd and get something else. I have it paired with Life360 through IFTTT. And half the time I end up setting the alarm off because it doesn't disarm in time. Siren is loud, if you're standing 3 feet away, but if you are in another room not too loud, It wouldn't bother anyone if they were breaking in, and not too audible outside to draw attention if something did happen.its good enough to wake up to if something did happen at night perhaps.
