Without a plan, it's nothing better than a video camera you can't control.Update 12/20/17 - I received an email from Amazon stating that they were enabling users to download the video in the first 24 hours.No PTZ, no downloading the video without a plan, and no watching your cameras from a computer (personally that's huge for me).I was expecting to be able to download the video at the very least since I was a prime member, but no.Thank you Amazon for the sale and thank the universe nothing worse happened!I'm a Amazon fanboy - I've bought 3 echos, 1 dot, 1 fire stick, multiple kindles, I have AWS instances running my domains, I've been prime since there was prime, and I was one of the first subscribers to Unlimited Music. Without purchasing any of the plans, the device isn't worth it at half the price.I open the app and see that my house had caught on fire and my dog was stuck inside.After calling 911 and a neighbor to break in to rescue our dog, I reopened the app to see the entire room filled with smoke and the fire blazing in the kitchen.
I have tried to answer as many of the common questions about this camera as I could.OVERALL FIRST IMPRESSIONSCamera seems well made and a little smaller than I thought it would be. The image on the live view in daylight was good (see photo), images appeared sharp and easy to identify. I turned on the TV, went into another room and was easily able to watch the TV and hear the sound very clearly when it came through.There were some breakups of the sound at times though, making me miss some of the audio detail.Hopefully these reviews will be updated at some point.• You can download and watch videos on a PC with the free plan (no live stream though)• You can turn off audio playback• You can invert the video• You can turn of the IR (infrared night light)UNPACKAGINGPackage came on time and was without any damage, but there was no padding inside the shipping box.Included in the main box were the camera, USB cable, AC adaptor for 110 voltage, small setup manual, wall mount and two drywall screws (see photos).
