We have two of these cameras and they weren't cheap. We're having endless problems with the cameras failing to activate, and the picture being so pixelated we can't tell much of what is going on. They are pretty useless and I would not recommend them to anyone. They're wireless and hopeless. 

 

The Good-

Not much. Easy to check them from anywhere through the app on your phone. 

Pretty easy to set-up.

 

The Bad-

Not cheap to buy.

We've had many incidents where we needed them to work, and thats what they were put in for, and they haven't recorded anything. 

They activate if a leaf falls off a tree or a shrub across the road blows in the wind - they'll activate every few seconds and drive you insane deleting footage of 'nothing', but if you are being harassed by someone RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM, and you need that footage for the police, they won't start up. 

The picture has also become so pixelated, we can't read the plates of a car parked right in front of it.
