Camera License Pack with 1 code to connect up to 8 IP cameras. Synology Camera License Packs are designed for expanding cameras set up on the Synology Surveillance Station. By default, two camera licenses are installed.
By applying the license key on the Surveillance Station user interface, you will be able to set up and manage more cameras on the network. To find out the maximum number of IP cams supported on each Disk Station, please refer to the specifications of each model.
Synology Surveillance Station has different billing methods for particular cameras, such as panoramic, multi-lens cameras and video server for analog cameras.
If you have a synology NAS, you may have discovered that you can use it to run IP cameras on your network. The only thing you need is your cameras, a PoE switch (or injectors), and the NAS. In my case, I use the NAS as a backup but I don’t even come close to fully utilizing it so it is doubling as a station for my cameras.
Here’s the issue with Synology. The units work on a licensing system for cameras. Most come with 2. If you only have 2 cameras, no big deal. You have everything you need right out of the box. If you want more, however, you have to buy licenses.
This practice is really annoying. I did it because it’s still cheaper than buying a dedicated unit (and adding NAS friendly hard drives, remember, they need to be surveillance or NAS rated, not standard hard drives and definitely not SSDs because of the constant read/write access).
You get the code, you enter it, and a half a second later, you have the ability to add 4 new cameras. Purchasing your license in bulk saves you a little money over buying them individually. It doesn’t save a lot however, so if you only need 3 licenses it’s still cheaper to buy those individually.
Realistically, I labelled this 5 stars because it is exactly what it is supposed to be. I just have a problem with Synology’s practice of charging so much per camera.
I do not hold this person responsible for what appears to be such a high price for licensing. I believe it is entirely a Synology issue. Nonetheless, I will say that this person who has sold the license to me was very helpful by being quick to respond to my question and upon purchasing, sent me my license in my email within a couple of minutes tops.
Here is the key for all who would purchase this license: You may end up searching all over the Internet for the best pricing for these licenses. I did. This is the best price and you get the license immediately if you request it.
I do not think that the price is a good value but it is the least expensive available out there. Unfortunately, there is very little competition out there which would have driven the costs down. Nonetheless, this is the definitive place to get your license right now and you don’t need to go around wasting your time.
Just get it here and do not blame the person for what appears to be such a high price when others are charging sugnificantlymore and you will have to wait days for the license to come in via snail mail.

I bought and installed this camera in a paddock i have at home a month ago Its clarity of picture and sound is fantastic. Onscreen ptz controls are measured and simple to use. This with the inpicture zoom feature of reolink makes this an awesome piece of kit.
Working great once you install it. Little inconvenient since it doesn’t work with POE (needs power adapter plugged in) and doesn’t work with Reolink NVR currently sold in PB. Otherwise , great little spy.
Use up to 64 cameras (webcams, camcorders, network IP cameras, analog cards, or your PC desktop) Capture JPEG snapshots or capture movies in standard AVI, advanced DVR, or leading-edge Windows Media file formats.
Video Security with IP Cameras, keep an eye on your home, place of business, cars, and valuables; watch your pets or your kids; monitor your nanny, babysitter, or employees. Use motion detection, audio detection, or even capture continuously.
Allows for E-mail and SMS text messaging alerts as well. Receive alerts via loudspeaker, e-mail, instant messaging, or phone, licensing the software sold separately. 1-Year updates directly from Blue Iris, Lifetime technical support from Amcrest Direct.
Amcrest Cameras (IP8M-2496EB) Image performance is camera dependant – I’m not so sure these cameras I’ve bought deliver the required quality images – especially at night when illuminated by the build-in IR LEDs.
The video (especially at night) seems to be aggressively processed with a lot of noise reduction to try and compensate the image sensor or optical deficiencies. Blue Iris Software: I’m still a novice and in general it seems to work very well and perform everything I’ve needed so far.
One disappointment is that the “trigger” motion sensor monitoring does not extend to the full video image. There is a wide margin / border in which recording is not triggered. Based on the “motion sensor” graphic (and not the “Advanced -> object detection “edit” where one can select the whole image) it would seem that about up to 40% of the image is not monitored for motion.
I am using Amcrest 4K cameras. 4 of them. With J1900 CPU it is not a powerfull DVR. With Amcrest Surveillance Pro NVR server it is recording with CPU usage around 10%. Blue Iris was not able to do it.
A single camera was jumming it to 60%. Seems it is decoding the stream and repackaging it. For i7 CPU with 32GB RAM it would not be a deal breaker. But i was forced to switch back. Possible there is a settings for that.
Another issue is recording to HDD is not straight forward. The application records into one place and moving it later into long term storage. Rules should be specified. It is not an ideal situation for multi hard drive system.
I don’t understand why they charge yearly now when the updates are minimal and honestly un-noticible. Version 4 was better than version 5, the current version. The setup is confusing and you have to go their forum to look up solutions to any issues you’ll have.
The interface is unfriendly and not obvious by any means. The previous version would have score much higher than the current version. Oh – there is no list of common cameras, in fact most of my AmCrest cameras are not listed in the product, of and no cross reference for cameras either.
Home security has never looked so good. The Nest Cam Indoor is the perfect addition to any home. The Nest Cam Indoor is beautifully designed and it plugs into power, so you never have to worry about dead batteries.
With motion and activity alerts, the Nest Cam helps you stay informed about what’s happening even if you aren’t home. You’ll get a notification when the kids come back from school, when the dog decides to eat those new pillows you bought, or when someone enters your home who shouldn’t.
Nest Cam Indoor also features a built-in speaker and microphone allowing you to listen in and speak to whoever is there. Nest is focused on making simple, human, delightful things. That’s how we’re creating the thoughtful home: A home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it.
I actually went out of my way to get this first gen camera even though the second gen had just came out. Reason: first gen works with the Nest app (and Google Home) whereas the second gen only works through Google Home.
If you like the Nest video layout better or you want to view video on a web browser you need the first gen camera. Also with the nest app you have increased sharing options. With google home your sharing options are limited.
Currently you can not share select items like a single camera under a ‘home’ in google home – instead everything in the home will be shared with full read write delete access. If you want to share a single camera for instance you will need to create a separate ‘home’.
So in some ways, yes the 1st gen one is better. However, I’m sure this will be EOL soon.
I have 3 other Google Nest products. The set-up for all of them was simple. The Nest cam…different story. When I scanned the QR code the app took me right back to the home page. Live chat with Google was disappointing.
I tried the QR on 3 different devices, so the devices weren’t the issue. In fact I had set-up a Nest Hub minutes earlier. The cam was the problem. Tried the different route using the “key. ” Still nothing.
Quickly drove to Best Buy and got my money back. (While chatting with Google rep, was left hanging several times for minutes. Arabella was juggling several customers obviously-normal procedure, I know.
But she was forgetting things we had already discussed. ).
Arguably best cam system. I previously used Canary, and the app, including the devices themselves we so buggy. Sometimes you would get an extreme amount of alerts and then sometimes you would get none at all.
With nest cameras you get alerts depending on what enters or exits the cameras view and it doesn’t force your phone to make a ringing sound. Several reviews point out the nest aware subscription as a point off of the whole product, but I paid for a product and had a subscription that was subpar.
Quality: the cameras are decent weight, leading to a fair structure and sturdiness. The camera quality is excellent. You have clarity to actually see what is going on and very little pixelation. Price: The price is really the kicker for some people, but you’re either paying for quality or nothing.
Peace of mind is worth the cost. Overall I am very pleased with the product and the programming works as intended. 👍.
Hikvision Network IR PTZ Camera adopts progressive scan CMOS chip. With large optical zoom lens, the camera offers more details over expansive areas. This series of cameras can be widely used for wide ranges of high-definition, such as the rivers, forests, roads, railways, airports, ports, squares, parks, scenic spots, stations and large venues, etc.
Very neatly packaged. Had to open some to place SD card. Takes a 256gb but used a 128gb. Not necessary but want to use all the features. Nice strong metal construction. An addition to. Can go direct just Ethernet and/or with power connected.
Warning if connecting or disconnecting always disconnect power may damage camera. Audio two way is soooo low. PTZ motor can be heard when tracking. Trying to flip camera. Using camera on table not mounted.
So it’s upside down view. Color only at daylight. Night vision at night. Camera sight of view have some limitation. Sturdy built and clear view in basic and HD. Using remote phone to zoom in out is good.

The system comes with everything you need without the hassles of contracts or monthly fees.
Great system. AMAZING FIELD OF VIEW!!! We live on 3 acres in the country and 4 cameras cover the majority of our property. We can see all the way down the road to my MIL’s with no problem! Had to buy extension cords for cameras just because our house is so long and we wanted a camera on every corner at least.
Picture quality is fantastic. Night vision is way more than acceptable. Better quality than some high end trail cams I’ve used. Things to consider: – Admin system is a quite clunky and not user friendly.
Be prepared to break out the manual when you need to access admin capabilities. – Placement is crucial and getting FOV where you want it is going to require some assistance unless you really want to get your steps in for the day adjusting the camera and going back and forth viewing your FOV on the display.
Get someone to watch the camera and holler at you from the window as to what direction you need to turn the camera before final placement. – We have 1 camera on top of the roof toward the bottom just so we can see over the top of a goat barn and out into the pasture.
Again. FOV is great. Until it rains. Then rain drops bounce off the roof and this is pretty much all you see. – The cameras are stationary. Lack of movement has led to spiders building webs around the lense of one and wasps building nests next to another.
Personally, I find it a little disturbing to see a wasp so close up that you can make out it’s eyes! Broom maintenance is a must but be careful or you’ll move your camera. Granted to really have to whack it good to do so! – Anything white or reflective in the FOV is going to pop like a wife beater under a black light during the night vision mode.
This includes white moths and any reflective bug that wanders by. Along with car headlights and tail lights of the vehicles parked in your driveway. – Heat amplifies the light so don’t put it on the roof directly over your dryer vent or the heat ventilating from the dryer it will look like smoke in your camera.
– We ran our cords through the attic and drilled a hole in the ceiling to drop the wires down the wall to our tv display. I recommend this! Our neighbor ran his outside. Then his GF left him, and broke into his house to steal his valuables (guns, money, and what not).
She cut the cords to the cameras before doing so. I guess the whole 1TB of recording memory escaped her attention though. Regardless. All the cords were an expense to replace and he had to spend the time and energy to replace them as well.
– If you’re like me and live kinda off the road, consider pairing this with a driveway alarm to round out your security system.
Defender is the worst organization I have ever worked with. Through there negligence my first wireless system, they attempted to update the remote access app, thus after a few months my entire WiFi DVR 4 camera system was worthless.
They talked me into buying the new 2K wireless cameras. While under warranty the plastic mount, and adjustable knuckle had bad stress cracks. I filed a claim and after dozens of emails, they claimed that because I used Phenoseal to secure the camera, it voided my warranty.
The Phenoseal was used to protect the integrity of the camera from further damage. Phenoseal is water soluble and cleans up completely. The unit was professionally installed according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
The out come would have been additional damage to the camera and housing as we have continuous sea breezes. Very unprofessional business strategies and worthless business tactics. Buyers, go your homework, this company has a great sale pitch, but there 2 year warranty is useless.
I replaced my older 4 camera system and DVR with the Defender Ultra HD 4K (8mp) system. The system I received has the new white DVR. The older system has a black DVR. Since the cables were already run the install was a breeze.
The existing power barrel connectors and signal carrying BNC connectors fit the new Defender cameras perfectly with no adapters needed for my installation. The camera mounting system that comes with the Defender cameras covered the holes that were originally cut to pass the wires through to the DVR.
The night vision works very well too and fully illuminates the areas in front of my entrances and yard that I need to see. The system does not include a monitor and one is necessary to configure the system.
I laid out and connected everything on my living room floor and ran an HDMI cable to my 4K TV to complete the configuration and make sure that everything worked before I mounted the cams and placed the DVR.
Half-way through the software configuration the system requested to perform an update. I allowed the update and it went without a hitch. The configuration process takes you through a series of questions so have the manual open and in front of you when configuring the DVR as it tells you how to respond.
The process didn’t exactly follow the manual, maybe due to the update that was installed. It’s still easy to figure out though – most of the screens are left as is. Defender also has quite a few videos on their Youtube channel that take you through he process of initially configuring the system as well as setting up the app on your phone.
Write down your passwords as you go as you’ll need them later. The QR code you’ll be asked to scan is on a decal on top of the DVR itself, along with the system’s serial number. The phone app works great! I installed it on my phone and “shared” it with my wife so she can check the cameras too.
I am recording continuously and didn’t try to set up motion detection. Remember that the system is recording video in Ultra HD/4K 8mp onto the hard drive. You have to pull video from the DVR onto a USB drive and play it back on a 4K capable monitor to see it in full Ultra HD quality.
What you see when checking with your phone is not 4K, but you can switch between BASIC and HQ quality which provides a very clear picture to see what’s going on. HIGHLY RECOMMENED at this price! Just over $200 for a wired 4K 8MP system is amazing.
I paid over $800 about ten years ago for a low resolution “TVL” system with a small hard drive. That system is still working to this day, and it will be interesting to see if the Defender system will last as long.

This discreet dome-style camera is built to suit homes, offices, small businesses & retail stores as it’s packed with the latest surveillance tech such as night vision, motion detection recording and smartphone integration.
Get security evidence in full 4K ultra HD video to capture essential evidence such as license plates and facial features. True Detect thermal motion sensing triggers recording and push notifications when it detects heat from moving objects, like people and cars.
Set up Face Detection at certain times of the day to trigger recording and alerts. You can even mount the camera outdoors, as their weatherproof design is IP66 rated to withstand rain, snow & heat, all year round.
Bought this camera to add to my NVR-8580 SWANN Video system. Initially my NVR would not recognize the new camera. After calling Swann it was determined the NVR firmware needed to be updated from the 2018 version to the 2020 version.
Carl from Swann walked me thru the install process which took a cpl of hours. Once updated the camera worked. However the updated menu on the NVR is significantly different. Be prepared to do some tech work on your NVR to get this camera to work.
I suggest reviewing the Swann website for locating and updating firmware b4 purchase.
Just installed the 4 camera setup this weekend and the quality of the video I get is excellent. However, the kit came with CAT5 cables to power the cameras packaged in an oval shape and wrapped very tightly.
Data cable should be wrapped loosely and in as close to a circle as possible to avoid kinks and wire failure. I also ran short on my two front cameras, 60′ may work if your connection is being made in the center of the home which may not always be the case.
I had to extend two lines to reach the DVR, and the two cameras closest to the DVR had entirely too much data cable. Ideally the system should have 2 (100′) cables added to the kit, or keystone connectors to extend the lines.
Also my DVR was not detected by the TV I tried using to set up due to the DVR was programmed to a lower resolution from factory making it undetected by my TV. I had to try a monitor with a VGA cable, and eventually a monitor with an HDMI cable to get picture to start setup and configure it to display on my HD TV.
Minor details to an otherwise excellent quality security system. Love being able to see my whole house from my phone as I travel frequently.
Pros: Daytime images extremely good. Night images very good, but only if the NVR has the latest software included. I have two NVR-8580 recorders. The first had the latest software on arrival. The second had 2018 software.
The ‘defog’ feature is not present on the 2018 software and night images poor. After upgrade installed ‘defog’ images very good. Cons: Microphone picks up excessive background noise. When night images are perfect the faces of anyone near to the camera are burnt out (just a white featureless blob).
I selected manual shutter speed, set a higher shutter speed, and reselected ‘auto’. That improves close-up of faces a lot, but it is trial and error. The overall night image will be darker.
Expand your Eufycam security system with this extra Eufycam 2. The camera can be linked to Apple HomeKit, so you can also control it with your voice using Siri. It has improved night vision and a motion sensor.
This recognizes people, so the camera doesn’t record unnecessarily when there is an animal nearby. The range of the cameras is longer. This means that the signal stays strong, even at a greater distance from the base station.
The Eufycam 2 stores footage locally and you can watch the recorded footage through a secure connection in the app. Thanks to this, you don’t need a cloud subscription to store footage. The built-in battery lasts a year with average use.
I purchased the Security eufyCam 2 Wireless Home Security Camera System exactly a year ago – so at the time of this review I have one years worth of feedback. Overall – I am very happy with this camera and I recommend this product.
Pros: No wires and clean connection – I live in a 160 year old house with thick stone walls and no exterior outlets. This product solved my problem to have security cameras with no drilling or wires.
I set one camera by the front door and the second camera by the back door. Installation is fairly simple but requires drilling two mounting screws into the exterior wall. The cameras have to be mounted 6-9 feet up in order for the faces to be captured and for scanning.
Since this works on battery and not wired. if the power in the house turns off it still provides security and notifies your phone. Notification – I get notification on my phone within three to four seconds of anyone person or motion – so almost instant notification.
I can set my zones so that cars passing on the street do not trigger an alert. I can also set my sensitivity so that not everything passing by my set zone triggers an alert. The system is smart that I can set it to human detection and/or all motion detection.
100% of the time I do get human notification and cars pulling into my driveway, however occasionally in the middle of the night I get notification of small animals, spiders, and sometimes heavy snow flakes during strong winds (I have reduced the sensitivity and haven’t received any of those alerts recently).
There is also theft detection alerts if someone tries to remove the camera and also you can set the base unit inside the house to alert for motion in any particular camera. There is also a red light notification on the camera which can be set on or off to show visitors that the camera is recording.
The cameras also have a audio alert to notify intruders that can be turned on or off – the camera intruder audio alert is very loud and there is no way to control the loudness of the camera intruder audio siren alert but you can turn it on/off/or snooze.
Video quality – Excellent day time video quality with 1-2 second delay. Night vision (black & white) is acceptable quality. The human detection also takes a picture of the face when detected. Videos are uploaded and saved for a period of time (although not forever).
Audio quality – Below average quality for live two way audio communication with visitors – but good audio quality for one way recording when it is saved. For live two way audio with visitors there is a delay and it is not the same experience as talking on a walkie-talkie.
I assume the quality of the internet has something to do with it. Fortunately I purchased this primarily for the video surveillance – which is excellent. App – The phone app is great. You can set all alerts and notifications.
There is a snooze timer you can set so that no alerts or sirens are activated if you need to do back and forth work in front of the camera. Charging – This is a battery device and requires charging. Although it’s advertised as 365 day battery life (this must be in a lab environment in Florida weather) it certainly is not the case in Canadian weather.
The front door camera gets activated most and requires charging every 4 months in Canadian winter and perhaps every 6 months in summer. The backyard camera hardly gets activated and requires charging every 6-7 months in Canadian winter.
The mounting and unmounting is simple and charging is on the base unit which can be done overnight which will then last me the next 4-7 months depending on how cold or warm it is outside and how often it gets activated.
Cons: As mentioned needs to be charged every 4-7 months in Canadian weather conditions. Charging to 100% can be done overnight. Internet Wifi – It is limited to the strength of your internet coming from inside the house to the outside of the house so depending on how far your modem is and the internet strength it will not work in some exterior areas of the house.
I have good connection from 40 feet of my modem on one side of my house where there is only an exterior wall, however 40 feet from the other side of my house has internal partition walls, kitchen plus exterior wall that my modem and internet connection is not able to connect to the camera on the outside of my house.
Overall after one full year of use in Canadian winter weather I would buy this product again and would recommend it to my friends. In fact I was so impressed with the Eufy brand that I just ordered a Eufy vacuum robot.
I am a *HUGE* fan of Eufy security cameras! NO SUBSCRIPTION is needed with this brand – to see your own videos (as is required with most other video doorbells!) WHO WANTS TO KEEP PAYING FOR THAT?? Once I discovered this I went all in – and have several: 1) a wired doorbell camera 2) a battery operated back door bell camera (180 day battery) 3) a wired floodlight camera 4) 2 Eufy Cam 2Pro K cameras (365 day battery) 5) 2 Eufy Cam 2 cameras (365 day battery) 6) 1 Eufy 2C pro camera (only 180 day battery – attached a solar charger) These are wireless cameras with a 365 day battery life.
Since they are best mounted 8 to 10 feet high, the long battery life means you only have to get on a ladder once a year to take them down to recharge them. The picture quality is really clear. I mounted these in areas with some cover, eaves or overhangs to keep them directly out of some weather conditions.
I’ve had them up for more than a year for most of them and only added a few more to balance out the surveillance around my house. What is great is the ability to SEE and talk to people at your front door on your cell phone *wherever* you may be.
Once I realized that you can call up the front door to see who is there on Alexa, That is why I also (a year ago) bought Echo Show devices for everyone’s bedroom in the house so the entire family can respond if needed to anyone at the front or back door.
I’ve been so happy with these cameras that over the year I’ve also purchased several of the company’s “SMART SCALES” to give to friends as gifts. I’m also considering a door lock from this company. There is also a Facebook group of folks from all over who have purchased and love these cameras, and discuss new items from the company or go through troubleshooting issues and more.
My Eufy doorbell, plus this camera over the front door, together, has also helped me keep up with home deliveries, as I get instantly notified when someone comes to the door and can respond immediately.
Regarding specs: This is a 2K camera, and although it’s clear enough, I live in a more “city” environment. My front door is 25 feet from the sidewalk and my driveway is about 100 feet from the sidewalk.
The FLOODLIGHT camera has 1080P resolution and I can read a license plate at the END of the driveway with a 1080P resolution camera. If you have larger distances to record, this camera is the top choice for that greater distance.
I’ve had most of my cameras up for more than one year, and the battery life can last that long – 365 days. All of mine made it except one camera, which I was able to exchange to get one that did hold the charge.
However for the 180 battery items I own, I found that they lost more time and power in colder weather. For the 180 day battery doorbell, I had to charge it every month in cold weather. It’s not placed in a sunny area so I didn’t buy a solar charger for that one.
I don’t get many visitors who come to my back door. This doorbell I added to the overhead floodlight camera because it’s placement films people walking into my driveway at eye level. Everyone in my family exits and enters from the back door – so with that, this battery device gets a LOT of hits which is a further drain on the battery.
This is the only Eufy device I must regularly charge. All the others I charge, I only do it once per year so far. I did buy a solar charger for the Eufy 2C cam. (has only 180 day battery life) because it’s mounted in a south facing area with no trees or other blockages to the sun.
With the charger, the camera stays at 100% all the time.
This eufy 2 Pro 2K Indoor or Outdoor Camera has so many neat things I can list that I won’t finish today, I was so excited ordering this camera I did not read it did not come with the homebase, had to be bought separately.
My husband immediately looked around for one and he ordered it and had to wait for it a bit, always make sure to read all directions before attempting to use bew devices. I was very excited I wanted to jump the instructions and almost mounted the camera, it’s a bit heavy feels like good quality material that will withstand crazy weather.
I loved the idea to have an option for indoor or outdoor security camera but the features are what sold me, has a crying sensor that’s neat. When my kids are playing outdoors when dad is working outside, boys play rough I can be aware when the first aid kit is needed and be prepared with a crying child before hand.
And peace of mind that my backdoor is under security and keep an eye on the furry friends as well, I like that we can call out on him and he looks around for us. The app is very easy to install and register and start taking advantage of all the neat features and personalized settings you wish to have or for your personal needs.
Overall very happy on how it’s been working and what we are getting, the battery life looks great we did charge until the blue light went off says a total of 12 hours.
Home monitoring has never been more flexible. With a camera head that can bend up to 90°, a 125° field of view, and 2K resolution, you could never miss a thing, even if you tried! With plug-and-play design, the 2K Indoor Wi-Fi camera lets you keep an eye on what matters the most.
I bought 8 of these and have opened and set up 2 so far. I have them facing out windows set up to view the 5 stairs leading up to and including the front door area and the other at the rear patio sliding door.
Very hit and miss as far as recording action. Here’s an example, the camera at the front will start recording when someone gets to the first stair and stop recording within 2 stairs climbed so it misses the crucial time when someone is closer to the door despite motion continuing during that entire time as they head toward the door.
Sometimes it will record a little longer but so far never during the entire time they come up the stairs and enter the house. In other words they would definitely miss the crucial time someone might be kicking your door in so you wouldn’t know if they just walked up and rang the doorbell and left or if they were the one that actually kicked your door in or stole your package.
Who knows?. However, if someone happens to be walking along the street, it will record for about 30 seconds to a minute yet most of that time there is no action or motion going on at all. It just makes no rhyme or reason concerning how long it records for so if you’re hoping to catch a burglar in action you better opt for something else.
If these would record the entire time there is motion in front of the camera no more than 3 to 10 feet away they’d be a great buy, especially if it recorded when they were close to the camera to get the best look at their face.
The other issue is that while listening to the recorded sound through your phone, it sounds like either you or the Mic on the camera are under water with garbled sound at best. I wouldn’t expect much with those little recorder/speakers but that’s how they sound.
If you want to see if your dog has chewed on your furniture these might work even though you might miss him actually doing it. I think these are mediocre at best.
Pro’s and Cons. Picture quality is good but a couple of issues. As far as the sound goes, it’s as if your listening underwater and the worst issue is that the camera’s often stop recording even though motion is obviously still going on.
Here’s an example, using an indoor camera sitting on the window sill looking outside through the window at the front door and the short stairwell coming toward the camera. it detects the person as they hit the stairs and then stops recording even though they have just taken a couple of steps up the stairs but doesn’t record them coming all the way up the stairs and to the door.
Therefore missing the entire time they approach the front door which I’d consider being the most important since this would be the time they’d possibly try and break into your house and that it would be the closest they’d be to get a good shot of their face.
Other times it records longer so there is no rhyme or reason as to why the recording times vary even though the motion is continuous. Sometimes recording for 3-5 seconds and other times about 39 seconds or so.
It’s not because they move slowly or stop moving all together because that’s not the case. If I get a notification of “motion detected”, I don’t want just a 2-3 second recording of someone approaching my house and then happen to miss that they actually broke in, then that’s no help at all.
I’d say these are good if you want to see if your dog is eating your furniture but they aren’t dependable for seeing security events for their duration. I bought 8 cameras and have only opened 2 so far.
Let me start by saying, I’ve loved Lorex up until now. Our home is protected by a Lorex CC outdoor system with all WiFi cameras that have worked flawlessly since the day they were installed. We recently decided to add these 2k WiFi indoor cameras.
They work about 25% of the time. They still run on old 2. 4ghz network. As far as hardware goes, we have 1. 2 gig cable internet, fueling a NightHawk AXC80 modem/router. Everything wireless in our smart home runs flawlessly… except these cameras.
We have trouble shot every possible option, even manually selecting different channels, with no solution yet. Camera one is less than a foot from the router, camera two is about 15 feet, camera three is about 20 feet and camera four is about 25 feet away… none of them work! LOREX, we need better tech! Just because you add an HD2K camera, doesn’t make the hardware better!!.

3-month Arlo Smart trial included With Arlo SMART security the Pro 4 Spotlight camera lets you monitor and verify the security of you home. Enhanced detection features powered by artificial intelligence allows you to effectively distinguish people from pets-enabling you to choose what the camera keeps an eye on.
ARLO PRO 4 is a major Go!! I love this kit. Everything you get is so easy to use. When you unbox you see the well built and solid camera unit , a small but long life rechargeable battery snd a fantastic mounting bracket that once attached to whatever surface you wish , you can attach the camera to it via the super strong magnetic that’s built into the mount.
It’s a fantastic idea to magnetise the camera and mount to allow easy adjustment and removable of the camera to charge the unit. The set up couldn’t be easier with a simple download of the Arlo app you then scan the presented barcode infront of the camera to activate/register the device.
The App is brilliant giving you easy access to all the different settings and preferences that you would want. You can activate ,deactivate the camera , you can change modes and set up notifications and motion sensitivity and also view the live stream as well as look in thr library which has stored all previous detections on the camera.
It’s a clever system that can quickly notify you whether it’s a dog a person , a vehicle or even a parcel. In the event that you want to view the stream upon notification, you can use the 2 way audio system to allow you to interact with the person , be it a parcel delivery man you can instruct him quickly at the push of a button on screen.
Arlo pro 4 also has motion activated security light to help deter people from intruding. One of the best features is the subscription service which you get a 3 month trial with , that saves and backs up all of your data and videos easily for quick viewing.
After the trial it offers many great priced offers and options to cater for your set up. The camera quality is absolutely fantastic and even at night you can clearly see all you would need to with colour night vision.
I really feel alot more at ease now knowing how simple it was to set this kit up to help protect my home as well as my family but also its a great convenience to allow you to interact with visitors while you may be out of your home.
The Arlo Pro 4 is a quite good camera. It’s not over big and is white in colour. It’s provided with a mounting bracket which can be fitted almost anywhere. The camera then attaches to the bracket by a strong magnet.
Which enables you to position the camera how you want it. This is a 2k camera, full colour with night vision and an LED spotlight. In addition it has two way audio. I do feel though that camera should have a better secure fixing to the mounting as I feel if the camera is at low level, such as on a bungalow it can easily be removed.
I found that the camera gave a very good clear view in colour and that the veiw was quite wide. Tha camera has a rechargable battery which is charged via a usb cable at present I can’t say how long the battery lasts.
This camera can be set to record people, vehicles or animals as an individual setting or all of them. You can watch live video from the camera and once you have installed the app on your smart phone it will notifie you of any camera activation.
This comes at present with a three month free subscription so activations are recorded to the Arlo cloud. After this free period you will need to take out the Arlo subscription for saving activations to cloud.
There are verious levels of subscription which gives differant levels of storage and add ons. There is no onbourd SD card storage so you will to subscribe to save recordings, in addition if your WiFi goes down then there is no other way to record footage.
This camera is super easy to set up. You just download the app and follow the instructions. It took a few minutes to set up. When inserting the battery you need to push the camera back into the casing carefully, pushing the sides of the camera and not the middle.
This is because the sides feel solid and the middle feels as if it will break if you push too hard. The camera can be connected to smart devices such as Apple Watches or Google Home. It has a siren function that can be activated manually but the siren is not very loud.
You can also save friends numbers to call in an emergency such as when the siren is going off. There is also a feature that you can enable to alert you when a fire alarm/ carbon monoxide alarm is going off although I’m unclear how this works.
Video quality is good and the angle recorded is quite wide. The camera has a spotlight so you can get ‘colour nightvision’ as well as black and white night vision. Charging is easy and the battery lasts for months.
The camera is wire-free and weather resistant so can be placed outside in all weathers. The magnet that holds the camera is strong but I would be concerned that someone would be able to just pull the camera off the magnet and walk away with it.
There is a hole in the back of the camera and I wonder whether a separate mount can be purchased so it can actually be screwed into a wall. Notifications are immediate however the camera has a slight lag on it when watching in real time which is irritating.
When watching live on my phone it is a few seconds out but when speaking to the camera through my phone the sound comes through on the camera in real time. The sound quality is not great. When speaking to the camera, the sound emitted is quite low.
There was also some feedback to my phone at times. In order to use features such as cloud storage you need to subscribe to a plan. Generally the camera quality and features are good however the lag and sound quality let it down.
The on-device ai instantly determines whether a human or pet is present within the camera’s view. also view every event in crisp 2k clarity so you see exactly what is happening inside your home. connect your indoor cam to apple homekit, the google assistant, or amazon alexa for complete control over your surveillance.
The camera has great picture quality and operating it via the Eufy App is very easy. You will however need access to a 2. 4Ghz Wifi network and this might be tricky to set-up. The Camera will sadly not integrate with a Eufy Home base 2 security system in the same way Eufy Movement sensors, door/ windows sensors and several other Eufy security cameras such as Eufy Cam 2 will integrate.
Automating and linking this camera with for example with a Eufy door/window sensor via the Eufy Automation function in not possible. You will therefore have to arm the camera seperately in the Eufy App as it cannot be done from the Smart home Eufy touch pad for example.
There are sadly no indoor Pan and Tilt camera from Eufy that can be fully integrated in Eufy’s Smart Home security system. If you need this, then consider some of the other non pan&tilt cameras from Eufy such as the Eufy Cam range.
Quick and easy setup. Remote access to Crisp Full HD 1080p live or recorded video. Motion alerts. No monthly fees required. event videos. Weather and vandal proof. Compatible with all existing iOS, Android, Windows devices.
I have ordered it from the EU – obviously came with a US socket, had to obtain a converter. The app setup is confusing – it says unable to add but then appears on the list of cameras. Had to buy an SD card to have local archive – it is stated clearly though just some extra cost.
The motion detection has a lag time, either on starting the recording or that it then gets blocked for a few minutes once detected. Therefore I wanted to have continuous footage so had to do some tweaks in the admin of the camera (using the IP via the router on the local network).
Helpdesk shared how to log on and how to set it up to record all the time. After that it works like charm – including IFTTT integration. Not cheap but a good value for the price. Would recommend.

We had no issues with Ring, but the Arlo technology is just better as of the writing of this review. The resolution is better (1440p vs 1080p) and the ability to differentiate between a person, animal, vehicle, or other movement is huge.
When I get a notification, that extra tidbit is the first thing I look for, especially at night. If there is a person lurking about, I want to know that immediately. That one feature distinguishes this camera from Ring in my book.
The battery life lasts 4-5 weeks, even with moderate motion triggers. And recharging is very quick. So we just take one down at a time and recharge during times of day when it is more convenient to be without coverage for a short period.
One last note: as with any wireless camera system, good wireless coverage is essential. The further away from a good connection it is, the longer it will take to connect and give you a notification. If there is a situation that needs your immediate attention, seconds count.
If you are putting a camera in an area with lower wifi coverage, I would recommend having a mesh router system or wireless access point nearby to be sure you have sufficient coverage. That is not an issue with Arlo.
That is an issue with all wireless camera systems. The wifi received on this camera system is very good. I have camera on the outside of the opposite end of the house from my router in a single story 2100 sq ft brick home and got a good signal.
I added a mesh router close to the camera to ensure a good signal just to be safe. This camera system is excellent. You will not go wrong with it. I highly recommend it.
I’ll start by saying I got 3 of these and a hub, the version I got had the larger XL extended life batteries in the cams then got the solar panel chargers. This is to help you decide if Arlo’s are for you.
The battery life is nowhere near what they say. Even with the larger batteries it seems about 20 motion events a day will drain it 2-3% each day. That’s only a month without removing and recharging. These smaller battery cams even less before taking down and recharge.
The other 2 cams get about 5 motion detects per day and last more than a month without recharge. Trying to use these to constantly watch video drains them in a few days. I could only get that done on Apple Home app on my Ipad, via the hub which is supposed to help conserve batteries.
You don’t want to get these to try to watch constant video. Also selecting only “people” and “vehicles” in the settings for alerts helps or there are too many alerts and battery drain. The detection alerts are fairly accurate and timely.
Similar to a ring doorbell. The video quality is good also. Also similar to a ring doorbell the first several seconds of motion are cut so you might miss a person walking past it unless they stop. The included cement or stucco wall anchors are cr@p.
Too hard plastic with too small hole and not enough grabbing ribs. You’ll tend to round out the screw head or spin them before getting them to work. If you’re doing that type of mounting buy others before beginning project.
The solar panels work well, I’m getting up to 6% recharge in a day with them so it’s worth having those or usb hardwired option because recharging them isn’t practical unless in an area with very little motion.
To summarize I might skip the hub, and if you get it you might accidently bypass it during installation if you wifi pair to the cams. I don’t know that it does much good. You’ll want to get a solar or hassle with usb wiring option.
Also you’ll need a monthly subscription at $10 or sale or ID. me of $7. 50 a month to get the notifications like the whole reason you bought this.
I’ll start with what I did not like about the Arlo Pro 4: 1. Video resolution. While it was good about capturing vehicles, it was bad for detailed information such as reading license plates or reading information of Company owned vehicles even when set in the HDR mode.
2. Filters would only filter “Saved” videos. Eg. Filter Animals. The camera will still recognize an animal, capture it on video and send a notification to your phone/computer. The videos were just filtered from automatically showing up in your library.
As you can see I did give it a 4 Star rating as it worked pretty much flawlessly for the 3 months we were away from our home. It was good about recognizing people from vehicles from animals. One of the cameras shut down when it lost internet connection but came back up later.
I liked the night time capturing with the infrared mode. The camera will allow you to light up moving item at night so that you can see the subject in color. Personally I didn’t want the subjects to know that they were being watch.
The tracking feature was okay and it was extremely easy to set up from physically mounting it around our home to connecting electronically to our internet. While it didn’t become an issue, had there been a threat to our home we would not have been able to identify a vehicle from any text located on the vehicle and this would have been very upsetting had it happened.
Keep an eye on your space even when you’re away from home with this 2-way audio security camera from Momentum. HD resolution has a clear picture, and Smart Human Detection alerts you to the movement of human-shaped objects to avoid constant alerts from wind, pets and other distractions.
This night vision security camera has built-in infrared LEDs that turn on in low light to help you see up to 30′. HD 2K resolution up to 2560 x 1440 gives you a clear picture. Create and customize up to 3 motion zones to prioritize monitoring.
Smart Human Detection only alerts when motion is made by human-shaped objects. Night Vision boasts built-in infrared LEDs that automatically turn on in low light and provide visibility up to 30′ in the dark.
2-way communication with built in speakers allows you to speak back and forth. Remote siren capability can deter a potential intruder. Motion sensor security camera sends alerts to your mobile device when motion is detected in areas you designate.
Micro SD card slot is included for external storage options. Comes with 24 hours of free video footage storage to play back as many times as you’d like through the app.
This camera is just okay is the best I can say about it. I really wanted to like it more. I say that because the motion detection is rather spotty. I pretty much use it like a nanny-cam to keep an eye on my Dad when he’s home alone as he is elderly and has been known to take a fall now and then.
But if you’re going to use it as a primary camera for security purposes, I wouldn’t fully rely on it to detect would be strangers as I said because it tends to be spotty and therefore gives me the sense that it is only a 50/50 shot at detecting anything which is not acceptable for me.
I will say the resolution is decent. But when you enable the speaker, it sounds like a jumble of white noise coming in. I can see this happening outside with a breeze flowing into the speaker causing the disruption.
But the result is the same even when inside the house which is very disappointing. Still however, despite it’s shortcomings, I make good use of it and gave it 3 stars for it’s portability as it can be mounted either screwing it on a wall or using it’s magnetized base to fasten it various metal locations.
This little camera is a gem it’s easy to install, has a great picture and can cover a decent range. We placed it near an entry door and couldn’t be happier. You will need to install an additional drive to save the movements.
There is also recording that is actived once movement is detected. Definitely worth the cost if you are interested in recording a small area.

Purchased 3 months ago, but due to the weather, have only just installed the system. Loving the camera resolution and the IR visibility. Zooming in off my phone I can literally count the blades of grass on my lawn ! Motion detect is good, as is the field of vision.
If anything, my only critisism is, when mounting on the eves, the field of view is a little too wide. But where as I planned multiple cameras to cover the front of my property, located at either corner, I now only need a single camera to do the same job.
Only critisism is there isnt any remote access from computers on the same subnet, so I cannot view it from my laptop, only my Phone, or the console.
EZVIZ outdoor surveillance camera with AI and colour night vision, IP67, Wi-Fi, outdoor IP camera 1080p FHD, artificial intelligence, body recognition, colour night vision, flash light, two-way audio, C3N, microSD card, compatible with Alexa and Google Home The C3N outdoor camera ensures your home is secure both inside and out.
With the help of artificial intelligence, the camera can reliably distinguish the shape of people as opposed to other objects. The integrated auxiliary lights provide night vision with intense and vivid colours, even in complete darkness.
Thanks to IP67 protection, the camera can be installed anywhere – it can withstand all weather conditions and dirt does not adhere to it. As soon as motion is detected, a loud siren and built-in flash light can be activated automatically to deter potential intruders.
The C3N uses an existing 2. 4-GHz Wi-Fi network and also features Active Defense for deterrence, colour night vision and two-way audio.
Picture is good, black and white with invisible ir light, it can be set to turn on visible lights for color when motion is detected, or full time visible light if you want. Users should be aware that the camera is made to work with a paid cloud subscription, which works well but will run up costs, as well as create some heavy internet traffic.
It’s possible to setup your own recording but you need additional software and it’s difficult to find the correct internal ip to stream.
