This WiFi security camera earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it recorded the clearest HD video and was the easiest to set up. Unlike lesser models that provided fuzzy video and muffled audio, The Best model transmitted crisp 720 HD video at a rapid 30 frames-per-second and crystal-clear conversations held 30' away from the camera. The Best WiFi Security Camera enables homeowners to monitor their property on a smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer from anywhere in the world and it sends notifications to your device’s app when it senses motion. Analysts set up The Best model in only 15 minutes, far superior to lesser cameras that took up to an hour, and text notifications arrived in two seconds after movement was detected—far superior than other models that took up to a minute. The Best model pans 270° and tilts 180° remotely, its night vision captures video from up to 30' away, and a micro-SD slot accommodates up to 32 GB memory cards.

Easy setup, great coverage!
By Miss J
from Stratford, CT
This security camera allows me more freedom. I can instantly tell if I Am needed, and respond accordingly. Great product! Had a system that required constant new address changes lost a great deal of money on this system, cameras are still installed for decoy look only what a waste.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

MY experience thus far
By Stormin Norman
from Bellflower, CA
setting up e-mail notification is almost impossible to understand - why can't the camera be setup to send SMS text messages to my IPHONE

The Best? I would hate to see the worst!
By Frustrated Purchaser
If this is the best camera, I would hate to see the worst. It took me over an hour to set it up the first time and I have a degree in Electrical Engineering. Afterwards, it constantly needs resetting (by pulling its power source and plugging back in) to get it to work. I have even tried adding a wifi router extender to boost the wifi connection, and it still loses its connection regularly.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Quality Product with some surprises
from Los Angeles, CA
The camera unit has what you would expect plus a few extras. The initial setup was simple but did require searching for the device using the software in order to setup WiFi. The microphone works but does pickup some background sounds - presumable from the unit itself. I was surprised the unit has a embedded speaker. You need to speak very softly to use it. The max video is not HD but SD - that was not clear (to me) but not too important as video quality is very good. Night time recording quality is very good within 15ft/4m. I did not try further. WiFi is awesome! Email notifications are fantastic. Worth the purchase price!

HELPFUL WHILE AWAY FRO TO KEEP AN EYE ON THINGS
By T Dub
from Edgewater, MD
Easy to use but terrible instructions, not in good English. No mention of setting up SD card storage. Also needs an extendable power cord.
By M, a mechanical engineering graduate
from Naples FL
There were no full directions included only the quick set up instructions. The many features on the camera were not intuitive. The camera worked while connected to the router, but did not with Wi-Fi even though it found the Wi-Fi. The camera went through a routine of turning around then it began quacking. I returned it for a refund.
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for the feedback. We have recently reviewed the instructions for this item. Please also feel free to call our customer service team at 1-800-321-1484 for assistance with a return or technical questions on this item.
By Jeff the old techie
Weak wifi reception. No other devices could use wifi while this unit was on. So I returned for refund.
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: While we regret that this item didn't delight you, we are gratified that you took advantage of our lifetime guarantee of satisfaction and returned to us.
Easy to set up
from Tulsa, OK
I use the camera to see which of my cats are in the upstairs game room. It also works great when I am away from home to monitor where they are. I am going to purchase another camera for my family room.It seems expensive based on prices I have found with other retailers for the same model. It would be nice if Hammacher offered a discount if you purchased multiple cameras or if they came in sets of 2, 3, etc. like other security cams often do.
