Great app and cameras. Love the ability to go back and check whats been going on and also love the live feed. The ability to talk to the person on the other end of the camera in real time is wonderful. My only complaints are 1. that it picks up so many false motions. I had to turn off alerts because I was getting hundreds a day. 2. The time lag between when the motion actually starts and when the video starts to record is longer than expected. Other than that I love it.
Good handy device but range, app needs to be better. My outdoor camera does not pickup range till someone is very close. The app gives notifications when there was no motion, takes a long time to log into app. Each unit cannot be customized other than name and camera on/off. It needs to allow which cameras I need to receive notifications on, how and option to schedule time separately. Also, activating my email automatically signs me up to receive notifications on every camera.
The cameras are nice, but the geofencing feature, arguably one of the most important features - if not THE most important feature - does not work well at all. For the price they charge for these cameras, it should work much more reliably. As I sit typing this on my phone, I am about 7 feet from my wireless router and I've received 4 notifications that the system has switched from home to away mode, back to home, then back to away. Not acceptable for a $400 2 camera system.
I purchased the Verizon LTE version which allows me to place the camera nearly anywhere and still get high quality video and alerts. The battery life is very good lasting over 3 weeks between charges. Motion detection isn't quite as sensitive as I'd like. Hopefully, Netgear will allow provide a motion sensitivity setting.
Searched months and tried a few other types and brands of cameras to help me monitor my elderly mom (92 years) living near me. Arlo works perfect for that purpose. The peace of mind is worth a fortune. I was alerted at midnight of movement, checked the video and saw she had fallen. I was able to respond quickly. As a caretaker, I couldn't keep my mom at my home and feel she is safe when not in my sight without this device. The device is economical, no paid monitoring and easy to install and use...perfect for my application.
An option to delete multiple clips vs one at a time would be handy. A but more consistency with the cameras would also be nice it's completely missed movement in its range but might pick up a passing vehicle. The app is becoming slower to load and freezing quite often and then buffers to the point that I'll usually skip that recording. This is a fantastic idea and it provides a real feeling of security.
