Good hardware... Android software is horrible. Constant app crashes (running on Nougat), delays with app starting up, etc. Need some major work here. Latest version still doesn't fix the issue where if you open a motion notification, it still causes you to need to enter login credentials multiple times (fingerprint, password,etc).
Pro: Potential to be quite good. Cons: Keeps telling me I'm offline. Geofencing is buggy and often doesn't change modes until I manually refresh. Gives false information as to armed or geofencing status (which is right via desktop). IFTTT integration is a little lacking - could do with ability to see or change status. Would be nice for notifications to have pictures. Can't enable geofencing via laptop Geofencing option sometimes disappears from app. Geofencing could be done much simpler by using WiFi connectivity as a base - if you're on home wifi, you're probably at home!! Review based on double Arlo Q & Nexus 6/5X
Works great! I do wish you could customize more at the same time. I wish there was a way to set a scheduled motion detection at a specific time without having to choose one or the other, if there's a way to do it I have yet to see it, if nothing else hopefully it will be updated at a later time
This update has broken the app, it is now almost impossible to connect and change modes. Please can you sort this out immediately. Can only check via internet using a laptop. Tested on S4, S6 and LG4.
The cameras are fantastic! The Android app needs a lot of work on performance; It is way too slow; I shouldn't need to sign in every time I use the app and it should be able to get system status much faster than it does. Geofencing is a great feature but often isn't reliable. Would love a little more flexibility in the schedule rules. Missing Wink integration. It is a great start and looking forward to improvements.
Camera batteries die in a week. No quick way to switch out batteries. Contacted customer support and no real useful information to prolong battery life and reduce delay in reinstalling. Very disappointed in this purchase but still one of the better security options available without paying for a hard wired system. 3 stars until improvement is made.
