Great new home automation gadget. Fantastic gadget for monitoring your home, turning lights and heating on and off whilst you’re out (using your smartphone). Easy to set up, and easy to use.

Excellent gadget which is reliable.

Very good but could be better. Setup is very easy and quick. Using the free life360 app and ifttt app you have a number of configurations at your finger tips for arming and disarming the piper. For example, we have our piper configured so when no family member has their mobile in the house the piper arms itself automatically and disarms when someone arrives home. This is great as we don’t need to worry about arming or disarming or false alerts because someone has arrived home and not disarmed the piper. The piper is smaller than i thought it would be. Its about the size of a small speaker.

“Good all round CCTV with Siren, Great solution for what I really need, Couldn’t imagine a better product”

You will need a fairly fast internet connection to get live feed at full resolution. Also, the videos recorded after movement are not accessible for a few minutes depending on your broadband speed i guess. You can turn down the quality of the video and the live streaming is ok then. Enough to see if there is anyone in the house with little lag. The alert notifications and messages are fairly instant. I sometimes have to relaunch the app however as it loses communication with the unit.

I have completed re-written my previous review after 10 months ownership and post recent events. The title is nest vs piper mainly to grab attention but this is certainly a review of how ‘nest & piper’ can work together with their pros and cons. I trust that i am suitably qualified as a current owner of 6 nest cams and 3 piper nvs (minus one which was stolen in a burglary – which we will get onto later). In summary one is not ‘better’ than the other you need to think about what you need and is best suited to your application/situation. Nest camthe summary of the nest cam is straight forwards. It is a small webcam which records up to 1080p with 120 degrees field of view and ir night vision 24 hrs a day – and is nothing much more than this. If you are planning to go full quality you need a strong wifi signal and a good upload speed. Nest cams appear to be very good at optimising the bandwidth they require and for me running 4 cams @ 1080p in low moment environments averages out to require approx 1. 5mbit/s based on 250gb being uploaded in 18 days. Piper NV Smart Security Alarm with HD Video Camera Monitoring including night vision , 2 Way audio and 105 dB Siren – Black Bewertungen

Great solution for what i really need. Had this for few months and so far i’m loving it. They simplified home security and thought about what people really need. Support for z-wave is very nice touch and i already integrated 2 aeon door sensors that trigger the camera when armed. Here are few suggestions for next version:- support for rechargeable batteries and make the camera recharge them while on ac power. – there are some privacy concerns with these always on cameras. So have a setting “turn off camera while disarmed”. In other words if camera is not armed i’d like to be able to disable recording/viewing. And have indicator in front to tell me nobody is watching me.

Best hardware, mediocre software, poor support. Pros- for an extra £50 you get battery backup and a better free cloud service than canarycons- the device is pretty dumb. The competition have stuff like face recognition or the ability to learn what’s false alarm. I just want mine to automatically set the alarm when everyone leaves the house and deactivate when one person comes back. Customer support have just told me to program it myself on ifttt but also not really clarified if that’s even possible. The ifttt integration is cool in theory but i didn’t pay £200 to be told to essentially program what should be very basic functionality myself.

Great product with easy set up. It is easy to set up and does what a camera should do plus more. The night vision is great, the lens is a wide angle version and it also acts as a extender.

It’s a very good camera but unfortunately it’s only for indoor use.

I purchased this device 2 days before leaving for a month in the us. Set up was tricky (for me) but i contacted piper via the website and the issues were resolved on the spot. During our absence our neighbours checked the house daily, every visit was recorded by the device and i was immediately notified in the states on my cell phone. Each visit resulted in a 30 second video on file which i could access via the phone and you can also monitor activity via the device in real time. On one occasion i held a conversation with our neighbour via the device and the audio quality was fine. Very impressed with this purchase and will certainly expand the system as and when i can.

No problem encountered in adding various z-wave gadgets. Fibaro and aeotec were compatible.
