The system allows for live streaming with a minor 1-2 second delay, coupled with, a notification system, siren, and 30 second event recording. Flagged recordings are marked and stored for sending to the authorities. Most notably, Home8 includes a free network attached storage (NAS) and automatic backup to Dropbox.
One thing I enjoyed about the camera is the resolution and night vision feature. The video of this security camera is clear and the color isn’t degraded like most surveillance cameras. The WiFi range is about 300ft with no obstruction (walls). One downside of the camera is the lack of tilt and only pan field of view, whereas, most security cameras have both.
The modem is impressive, as it provides data privacy, dual firewall for anti sniffing, bank level video security, siren, and NAS video storage. The modem simply plugs into the back of your router with a CAT cable and works just like plug-and-play, equally important, will then recognize the camera, window alarm, etc…
The app is extremely user friendly, eye catching, flows smoothly, and very easy to navigate. For this reason, I really like the simplicity of finding my way around the menus of the app. Hence, no guesswork required to access the features are inside the menu. Not to mention, users can control many settings in the app and set to your preference. Adding a device is quick after the initial setup of the modem and account.
Home8 provides many devices that can be connected to the previous network, in fact, they all work through one app. The devices are fairly priced individually and range between $39.99 to $99.99.
Overall, the Home8 security system is a great system that can be expanded, and has excellent customer service, while also providing a quality camera and a unique experience.
