    Holy shit! Researching these things is a fucking nightmare. No matter what one I check into there are so many mixed reviews on the same devices that range from awesome to utter crap. For example I go to PCMAG.com and see whatever they recommend I then look at Amazon reviews and its always the same. Half of the people love the cameras and the other half wanna kill the manufacturers.

    What do you resident techno beavers use or recommend? I am looking to monitor on my iPhone and my laptop. Cloud recording would be nice but not an absolute necessity. Single camera is fine for what I am looking to monitor.

    But I've never seen a review above a 4

    Like you say it's 50/50 on who likes them

    Be aware of the outdoor operating temperatures. Not sure how cold it gets in NJ in the winter but I'm looking for one that has operating temperature up to -20F

    A few years ago I lived at at apartment complex and I had a new Jeep with a soft top. Someone started poking a hole in the window with a knife. Every once and awhile I'd come out and, bam, there'd be another single hole poked in the back window, all in the same small area. I desperately searched for some kind of workable way to put a camera on it but it being an apartment complex parking lot, I never did and eventually moved away.

    It's probably better though because if I caught that motherfucker I'd likely be in prison now.

    The Ring is cool but you can't watch on demand. It only activates the camera when it detects motion or someone rings the bell.

    We have a canary inside and I just use black infrared trail cam for around the house 1080p. Not ideal but cheap and effective.

    Don't be silly. If that were the case this thread would be asking advice on where I can buy myself a body bag not a camera.
