The app does not work!!! The motion detection on the phone app does not work. You have to have an old copy of IE not Microsoft Edge to set up motion detection. E-mail set up is so complicated that you have to be a software engineer which I am. The app needs so much work it's almost worthless as a support for the jennov camera. I get a message to read my notifications but there is no notifications menu selection. Still a piece of 💩

Setup was pretty easy after I watched a you-Tube video on it. My problem is that when it detects motion, it takes a second or so to start recording and by then whatever triggered it is usually gone. Also motion blur is pretty bad when it does record. For example we had a neighbors car window shot out. I have a recording of it and you can tell its a truck but you cant make out the license plate number because of the motion blur (It wasn't going that fast). I cant figure out how to improve it because the documentation is so bad. I wish it would record 2 seconds before the the motion alarm is triggered and 20 or so seconds after the alarm (my ring doorbell does this) and have clear video. Does anyone know of a better app?

I would recommend this camera for the price because the picture is fantastic. We paired it with a motion sensored light in order to get better picture at night. We just had our first recorded incident after owning it for about 9 months. Someone broke into our cars in the middle of the night. While we can see them almost perfectly committing the crime, I cannot get the video off the app on my phone to give to the police. Also, the program included is pretty terrible. It only records all the time or not at all, the motion detector and notification system does not work for us. It is supposed to notify you when it senses motion but it does not. It also does not record only when it senses motion. Due to this, we only had less than 6hrs of recording from our 32gb card before it was written over. So, while it is great that we caught the perps, we can't give the footage to the cops so it is nearly useless. When we plugged the card into the computer, the data was corrupted so I only have it downloaded into the program and cannot get it elsewhere and cannot send it.
