          I have two of these cameras. There is no pixalation. Clear play back from the cloud. I do not have a problem with them going off line. I have netgear high speed wireless router with two channels. Camera is acurate when motion is detected. Very clear night vision. Sound quality is excellent. Speaking through the system is clear. I did purchase the cloud for 1 camera at $ for a year. Second camera would be $ more but decided I don't need two recordings. You automatically get a 2 week trial of cloud when you set the camera up. Easy to set up, it took 3 minutes! It has a wide view. You can see the entire room minus about 2 feet out from the camera. It captures outside views perfectly. Camera gets hot but not too hot to touch as someone claimed. I would highly recommend.

          I love the product! ...though I should have done a bit more research before purchasing it. I live in Australia and hadn't realized that the cloud based recording service was only available in the US & Canada.

          If the service becomes available in Australia or if anyone can tell me of a 3rd party service or software I can use for recording then I will give it 5 stars.

                Will notify us by e-mail of noise or movement, including telephone ringing.
                Provides clear picture of room for up to 7 days. More days available for more money. All events are recorded on a timeline and timeline is easy to use.
                Cannot be used on a 4G wireless hotspot. Requires broadband. Does need a simple way to turn it off when we are home.

                      Easy to set up. Works only with Internet, so there is no local browser headaches. If you cannot connect to it later it can mean your internet may be down or the power has gone down. I needed to monitor my Bird during a very hot time and knowing his temperature in the room made me know my AC was still running and I could check in from time to time. Disconnection can send you an email too. Recording costs extra after the demo period for those who need constant recording or when motion happens & for very long periods too. Zoom and talk/listen is nice too. Only wish they made a 360 degree model that would track motion..

                                  It nice to be able to rely on something so small but yet efficient.

                                        Shopping from BH is absolutly something I will do again, fast delivery even to denmark.

                                        Dropcam:
                                        Extremly easy setup, but quality is fareaway more bad then I expected from this camera, specially if you look at the diffrence at dropcam's website between the "standard" and proversion in nightmode, With IR light on. Not expect the same Sharp images. But it is working for my usage.

                                        I bought the Dropcam Pro for my father-in-law and he loves it. He can keep an eye on what's happening inside his house while he's working in his shop or out of town. Setup was simple, video quality is good, and it works flawlessly.

                                        The only negative is the audio lags a few seconds, but that isn't a big problem.

                                          Clear picture, but as advertised, can't be used outside. However, if at night, you decide to shoot video from inside the house out, the IR light will drown out the picture. It will reflect off the glass. Inside video IR is great!
