I purchased the new LOREX HD WiFi security camera from Best Buy with the intention of using it inside my apartment window to monitor the outside walkway leading up to my front door.
The install was easy once you had the correct application. The correct application lines up with the instruction booklet, the incorrect application does not.
It found my WiFi system easily.
I placed it on the sill in my window slightly angled to look down the walkway. It is very clear during the day and shows people walking up and down past my apartment. It also records cars and trucks moving a block or two away as well as the lights from cars in our parking lot. While it does have a sensitivity choice, changing it from "medium" to "low" didn't really change the sensitivity much at all.
For some reason, at times it does not record. On one occasion, I went out my front door and washed off all of the windows and entry door glass (including the window that the camera is behind) and the camera did not record me... standing right in front of it.
Not recording me a couple of times has become a problem. Recordings that it does make are great.
The application has several options for different things such as blocking out unwanted distant items, filtering, etc. Problem is, there are no instructions which tell the owner...what the different choices do. You just have to try everything out, and hope you hit on a solution to your question.
It does identify a "person" verses regular "motion"...although one day I was pushing a cart and the camera identified me as a "motion".... due to the cart I would imagine.
The cord is long enough; the head of the camera gets very warm; the camera is smaller than you might think; nicely made.
When your review your recordings, there is no way to easily delete them as a group. You have to delete each one, and you might have 50 depending on what the camera sees behind the closest target.
If placed in a room, it will easily record all movement. The recordings are short-timed, thus you end up with a lot of individual recordings.
Will I keep this camera or return it to Best Buy, I don't know yet. I still have a couple of days to decide. The biggest problem is the camera recording distant movement and sometimes not recording what is right in front of it.
BUT, when it does record correctly, the picture is great...and you will be impressed.
