      Answer

      I am doing this right now. The answer is that the picture is great. The problem is that you need to set it so its not very sensitive. I am currently at 19% and need to take it lower. The picture is great.

          No it doesn't require a network cable, but it does have to be plugged into an electrical source.

            We thank you for the interest in the product. Keep in mind that it needs to be plugged into a power source to function. It does not run on batteries.

              Answer

              You CAN NOT set this camera up using a PC. You must have a smart something to download mydlink Lite. I asked this question above, bought the camera, talked to support, they said too bad. I have a green light for Wifi but can't set camera up.

              I need to use this without anyone in the room knowing it's there. Are there any noises or lights that will give it away?   (4 Answers)

                Answer

                there's two small red lights on either side. one green light. you can always "tape" them up so they dont shine through.. HOWEVER I believe those red lights (which are barely visible) are for the camera to see in the dark. the ONLY noise it does it when it switch from light to dark (happens very rare).. it just sounds like a quick "tap".. if the camera is hidden, you shouldnt be able to locate where the noise came from.

              Do I need to pay a monthly fee for any additional internet or phone app to use this camera? Or once I buy it, that is the only cost to use it? Not wondering about a warranty plan.   (5 Answers)

                Answer

                You do not need to pay a monthly fee to view the camera's life feed nor do you have to pay for an app. Once you setup your camera, you will be able to remote view through our free app, mydlink. Which can be found in the app store on your mobile device.

                Answer

                Yes. You can name each camera individually and they will be listed in the App on your phone. I'm not sure if it will have separate folders for each camera and it's recorded data. I suggest getting an inexpensive router just for the camera system and hard wire it to your normal router or modem so they won't draw so much on your bandwidth.
