Okay - so only had time yesterday to fix it to garage and carry out a basic setup before the light faded and the gong sounded for supper
General impressions of packing and manual very good - also the product itself purely from a quality of design and materials/construction: very Apple-ish (I’ll put some coins in the swearbox).
Very impressed with the standard of in-app support on the phone. Didn’t need to use the help section but it seems quite comprehensive if you do.
Set up and wifi connection a breeze with a few heart stopping moments: the garage is 40 feet away from the back of the house, so was iffy about whether the floodlight would see the wifi signal. As it happened, it was my phone that struggled to keep connection - the floodlight is fine.
Tried a quick go with activity zones, because I want to avoid the large clump of shrubs in the centre of view.
The motion detection at peripheral zones 12-15 feet seems good but I think my upper central zone at 40 feet away is just too much to expect.
Not really an issue for me as I bought the EufyCam 2 kit at the same time and will use these cameras for the essential areas at the front and side of our quite long building. Thereafter will try the wired video doorbell as soon as it drops into Amazon UK (it’s listed there but ‘currently unavailable’)
As an aside - not sure I should be viewing the live feed when away: something larger than a mouse but smaller than a cat just scuttled across the drive and I’m hoping it’s not looking for a home!
The mic picks up everything - from birdsong to the neighbours’ car door slam - useful but again I shan’t be tempted to ‘listen in’ while here at work - you never know what people might be saying about you…
Here’s a sample and my first attempt at activity zones - had to reduce sensitivity down from 5 to 4 this morning as the rain is triggering alerts.
