Bought this camera to check up on my cats when I’m not home. When I first set up this camera, I was uncertain if I liked it. The video was greatly lagging and I found this frustrating. But once I had the camera setup and had it plugged in for a day or two, it stopped lagging so much and worked much better. Now when I move the angle of the camera on my phone it works instantly! The motion detection is awesome and I get alerts on my phone when the cats are in the room. The alert records a short clip so even if they run through quickly, you can go back and watch the clip of when they were in the room. You can save the alert clips to your phone library through the app even without paying for cloud storage or using a memory card. I would highly recommend this camera if you are looking for something affordable as a baby monitor, pet monitor, or security camera.
