For the parcels that arrive the minute you go out. Good quality product quite easy to install. I have only used the video facility and the picture on my phone is very good. The delivery and packing was very good. So far i am very pleased with my purchase.

A good idea a little bit wasted. There is a noticeable delay between the push and the call on the smart phone. This is more pronounced if away from home such that by the time you answer the caller has gone after pressing the push serveral times cause a alert several times. This has also happened while at homenearly every time after the initial accessing the camera/ mic via the phone a ‘ time out’ notice pops up numerous times before it clears and the unit is accessible again a caller can be missedthe night time leds only come on when the button is pushed but not when you access the camera/ mic without an alertrecordings and pictures can be made not sure if these can be download to another location for archiving or playing back thru other playback software. It would nice if you could access the unit via a laptop or desktop to archive the clips or videosthe advert implies that the unit takes a micro sd card it does not, you are stuck with 8 gb and can’t increase it’s memory. The minimum recording time that can be selected is 1 minute this is a long timethe concept is good but think the software needs a lot of attention, deo volante it will be updatedthe instruction do not cover all the aspects that appear to be available on the unit and can be a bit confusing.

For the parcels that arrive the minute you go out. Good quality product quite easy to install. I have only used the video facility and the picture on my phone is very good. The delivery and packing was very good. So far i am very pleased with my purchase. Here are the specifications for the SmaInHand Smart Home Kit:

Plesanly surprised by how good this device is. . In reading this review it must be borne in mind that, i have only just installed the unit, so it has not had the benefit of extended use. However, i am so pleased with the way it performs that i am compelled to share my experiences so far. Installation is easy although i had a few problems because i got my wifi password wrong.I did not want to drill through a wall either to reach an indoor power supply or to house the aerial. I tapped into the power supply to external lights at the front door, fitted a waterproof switched socket and plugged the unit into that. Next i fitted a 2 gang pattress box on the wall where i wanted the unit to be. I got a blank cover plate for the box and fixed the unit to the plate, drilling a 12mm hole through the plate and putting all the wires including the aerial in the box. The result is neat and tidy with only the power wires going into the box. Everything works fine, there is minimal delay between activating the bell-push and receiving the notification and activating the camera on my phone.

Brilliant until it stopped working 😢. I’m giving it 5 stars because it’s been brilliant. I say been because it’s now completely stopped working and it’s so so disapointed. I’ve changed from android to iphone and now the bell won’t work at all. I’ve cleared it down and started again and tried a different email as a new registration nothing it just keeps saying device password incorrect . It’s an expensive bit of kit to have breakdown in under a year of owing the product , can’t find anyone to help us , registered the product for a three year warranty from the directions in the box when we brought it , however now it’s saying we’ve not registered and doesn’t recognise our email . The software update on this product seems to have shot it down in flames if you go in the app store it says please log out and log in again as we’ve added new software. Seems this is where it’s gone wrong. Anyone logging out of the product can’t get back in again successfully or changing their phone same thing occurs.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Good Quality product.
  • This is a great product, much better than other similar wifi doorbells
  • very good quality. works well

Excellent to use as a infant watch. I requested this smainhand 720p pan/tilt wifi newborn/pets watch ip surveillance camera to use as a baby monitor for my son’s bed room. It arrived from hong kong effectively in the timeframe supplied which was excellent. It was well packaged, on the other hand the box it came in had photographs of all distinctive camera’s on with the exception of this 1 which was a bit bizarre. My partner has set it up and stated it was pretty easy to established up. It is a tiny, smart looking camera, which fits in my son’s bed room completely. I have gratefully obtained this smainhand 720p pan/tilt wifi child/pets monitor ip surveillance camera at a diminished price tag in exchange for my sincere and unbiased critique. The views and reviews in this evaluate are my individual, based mostly on my personal encounter. I generally consider to include as much data as feasible to assist consumers make their very own selections. I do have a confined time to post my assessment so have left this evaluate primarily based on my initial impressions and use of this product, and if i have any further updates on my use of this item then i will update at a afterwards date.

Well made, and does what it should. I wasn’t happy with all the wires coming out the back as when using standard plastic wire connectors makes it rather bulky and as i wanted this on my front door it would have required a bigger hole drilling then unsightly wires and connectors on the back of my door. Other cctv doorbells just require a single transformer wire connection. Also disappointed the infra red only work at night when doorbell pushed and not when motion detected.

Works well, quick response to mobile phone app and it can ring your doorbell too. Usual chenglish instructions are more funny than a problem.

This is a great product, much better than other similar wifi doorbells. This is a great product, much better than other similar wifi doorbells i’ve seen. Only i’m worried about the fact that you store access data on an internet server, rather than the device. However, it makes it all very easy to setup and use.

Ideal to use as a baby monitor. I ordered this smainhand 720p pan/tilt wifi baby/pets monitor ip surveillance camera to use as a baby monitor for my son’s bedroom. It arrived from hong kong well within the timeframe given which was great. It was well packaged, however the box it came in had pictures of all different camera’s on with the exception of this one which was a bit strange. My husband has set it up and said it was very easy to set up. It is a small, smart looking camera, which fits in my son’s bedroom perfectly. I have gratefully received this smainhand 720p pan/tilt wifi baby/pets monitor ip surveillance camera at a reduced price in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. The opinions and comments in this review are my own, based on my own experience. I always try to add as much information as possible to help consumers make their own decisions. I do have a limited time to submit my review so have left this review based on my first impressions and use of this product, and if i have any further updates on my use of this product then i will update at a later date.
