We are fed up with these cameras. We have had 5 for about 5 years and they continue to go offline, especially when we go out of town. They are useless. We have great WiFi and even had it upgraded. We pull them down, sync them, put them back up and within 2-4 days they are offline. Usually it’s our carport and driveway but the other ones at the pool and front door have been going offline lately. I have spent $14.99 month for the service and it has been a huge waste of time. Get a wired system and save yourself money and annoying hassle. I mean, they go off the moment we leave town, and when they work, they don’t even capture half the cars pulling in or kids walking into back door. Waste of money!

Have had system for 6 years now. First two years good. Remaining years unreliable, but of late pathetic connection issues and batteries being run down much too soon the past couple months.

. . . and as of 5 minutes ago, another cam from 200% batt to needing batts.

So in 48 hours 3 cams batt dropped to needing batts (dead) and two 100% batt but back offline again.

What a mess with this system.
