Pros InexpensiveGreat video quality, smooth real time viewing, field leading monitoring services available, great facial recognitionGreat video quality and real time viewing, user friendly app, inexpensive subscriptionGreat video quality, smooth real-time viewing, field leading monitoring services availableGreat Video quality, good real-time viewing, relatively inexpensive
Cons Poor video quality and real time viewing, limited storage, no subscription options to expand storageVery limited without a subscriptionVery few services offered without a subscriptionVery limited without a subscriptionNo scheduling
Bottom Line Relatively poor video quality and LED assisted night vision make this a poor choice for general monitoringThe best choice if you want high quality video in conjunction with impressive facial recognitionUseless without a subscription, but for $3/month becomes a top-tier modelPerfect for looking in on pets, and a good monitoring camera if you pay for a subscriptionA great camera that rivals the Nest, and really shines for those that want to use the Amazon Key service
