  • Great product for the price point
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Chris - January 4, 2020

    The camera does a great job of tracking movement and people for a $100-150 device. The interface is easy to use, my and my wife's parents haven't had an issue. Fantastic way to keep family involved in our son's life from a long distance. The ability to put a physical cover over the camera and a microphone/camera disconnect button are good piece of mind. Also love the light indicating it is infact off. While I won't confuse this with a $1,500 videoconference system, it is a great value. The ability to turn off Alexa service and collection of data in the setup and later on makes this a product that will be appreciated by a larger audience.

  • Needs fast internet
    Verified BuyerReviewed by angela53 - November 14, 2020

    Purchased this to video chat with my brother on the other side of the country. He had one and it worked great. I loved how it followed you as you moved or zoomed in if you were sitting down or zoomed out if you had a group of people. I also loved the fact that the voice and video could be blocked when not in use for privacy. I found it worked ok enough but kept freezing or pausing or pixelating the video. Turns out my dsl is not fast enough for it. This product needs the fastest internet possible. He goes through his cable provider. I think if you had true high-speed internet, like from Infinity, etc., you wouldn't have a problem. I returned mine.

  • Great...with a few bugs
    Verified BuyerReviewed by JoeTech - February 12, 2021

    Seems a little buggy, I have to restart it basically every time we use it. That said, it works great and as described in the videos. If you have folks spread out in a big room, it will stay panned out. However, if you have only one person...it will zoom nicely and follow the face. There’s also a focus feature where you can select a face and it will ignore the others. This is nice for when one person in a large group is trying to talk. Our girls love the games and silly mods to play with grandma...and grandma has got it figure out too. The messenger rooms feature is another great thing because of the large screen! Overall we are very happy.
