Setup was a pain if you have Comcast, the Xfinity routers don’t like this unit – even if you turn off the 5 Ghz network. Luckily, I have an old apple Time Capsule running it’s own 2. 4 Ghz network and a signal booster just inside the house – because this couldn’t see either router from 15′ away…The really big problem I have is that even though I shared it with my wife and daughter, they can’t look at videos to see what the event was… My wife has a home business and needs to know when packages are left there, we have porch pirates come through our neighborhood from time to time.
