Well I am still trying to get to know in-depth of this camera. I could see both high and low points using this camera.But as of now, my likings are high and recommendable.Highlights:1. We took some pictures and videos at night time and they really are amazing. Very clear and colorful lights pop up brightly. Have uploaded 2 pictures2. Easy to carry in any small bags to big because this camera is very very light and takes less space unless you are carrying all of its parts.3. I hadnt expected this kit to have a macro lens. It was a surprise. I took picture of food but at lower ISO and high SS and still, picture has come in depth even highlighting spices in the food. (Picture uploaded here)4. It has a speaker mic which is plus point.5. Kit also includes pouches for camera and lens.6. ISO was set automatically but it can be changed as desired. Aperture FStop is 3.27. Very very handy just like my cellphone, when ever I want to take picture and video, I can just open and shoot. As simple! No need to take that big camera from bag.8. Very steady, doesnt blur images or videos. Has got holes to plug on to tripod but I havent attached it to the tripods. Without tripod, I could shoot still images even during night time when it was cold.. Lowlight images are clean as well.LowlightsThough I liked this camera a lot, there are couple of things that needs to be improved,1. While taking videos outside in a windy place, sound quality is best without mic as compared to taking videos with mic2. Videos and pictures taken outside in lowlight and anywhere during daylight is most beautiful. But inside house in artificial light, clarity wasnt satisfactory.No matter lowlights, I really liked this camera. I gave it to my niece for her trip with no tension as its inexpensive. Unlike my expensive cameras.. and she was glad that it was handy to take pics during her entire trip. So its a win win I have been looking for a camcorder for my teens as beginner. cant afford to buy expensive like Canon or Sony for school homework project . I thought iPhone is good enough until I watched my friends videos, the quality and sound is so good on the TV and then I decide to buy this one. This camcorder is one of my choices in the beginning and why I choose it in the end because it fits all my requirements: FHD , 16x zoom ( smart phone cant do with one hand) ,night shot functions ( also could attached flash light, I didnt buy it yet) …and etc. The price make me haha with all these functions thats also very attractive. when I recorded my kids band performance, with tripod it did like professional photographer and picture or video is better than my iPhone 8. Ive included just some footage of my front community and fruit tree, and as you can tell, you can get some great image and sound quality for less than 200 bucks. please note HD has to play on computer or TV. thats the way we all watch together in family room to enjoy video. It is lightweight and comfortable, and has good build quality. I felt well when camera came with external microphone and wide angle lens and extra battery that can improve the audio recording. Its available with 3.0 inch capacities touch screen and 270 degree rotation. my only complain is no anti-shaking. I would be ok with it for my kids stand on this price. This camera is awesome! I used to always have a nice camcorder, but havent really been buying them in the last few years since phone cameras got so good. What really sold me on this was the accessories it comes with.The microphone is not only really useful, it looks really cool as well haha. It makes the sound quality clear as day, and does an excellent job of filtering out unwanted back-round noise like wind. The best part about it though is how it attaches. Usually this is where a product fails first, but it is top notch on this camera. There is a small slot on the camcorder you slide a piece of the microphone into, and screw a wheel downwards to lock it in place. As long as you dont screw it too tight I dont see it breaking any time soon.I was skeptical of how well the side angle and macro lenses would work, and I was pleasantly surprised. The wide angle lens increases the field of view by almost 50% at least, without sacrificing and image quality. The macro lens was even more impressive, if you need to be taking pictures/video up close this is 100% the camera for you. I also really appreciate how it comes with lens covers for both sides of the extra lens set.The night vision blew me away. Ive had camcorders with night vision before, but they never really worked all that well. This works as well as my professional grade night vision goggles! I have only tried it in my back yard so far, but can confirm itll work out to about 80 feet no problem.I have a bad habit of trying to figure things out without using the user manual, and it was surprisingly easy with this camcorder. The only thing that threw of off a little was now to access the icons on the screen, I was looking for some sort of toggle switch, until I realized it was touchscreen. This was a cool little surprise haha. I do wish it came with a case that held the microphone and wide angle/macro lenses as well as the camcorder, but thats not the end of the world. The case for the camcorder is still good. Overall this is a great product for an incredible price. I am going to be getting another for my mother for Christmas!


Dog Training Collar - Rechargeable Dog Shock Collar w/3 Training Modes, Beep, Vibration and Shock, 100% Waterproof Training Collar, Up to 1000Ft Remote Range, 0~99 Shock Levels Dog Training Set

Notes from the Community

I was skeptical about this product, I dont care for the idea of shocking a pet, but this collar has a beeping and vibration setting so I thought I would give it a try. I have a 1 year old mixed breed that I have tried everything to train. She is very smart but there were things that I couldnt deal with, like digging up my flowers and jumping on people that visit. When I let my dog out she would go nuts and wouldnt mind me when I gave her a command.From the time I put it on her my life has improved. She comes when I tell her, no longer digs in my flowers and has become a very well behaved dog. I have never gone past the vibration setting and after 1 week I hardly use any of the settings. The beeping was enough to warn her and if she keeps on the I use the vibration, never have used the shock. I was at a point where I was looking for her a home, now I have the dog I wanted. I have a 8 month old lab. Nothing got thru to her, when she went outside. I love the low adjustable settings. Now with just a little beep and the occasional lvl 20 buzz she turns right around and comes running home. Not even the horse pasture next door distracts her. Our Dobie thought she owned us.After we hooked up the training collar she found she was wrong. Only buzzed her once. Now when you call her, shes on her way So I purchased this collar and remote system for 3 of my dogs. I recently adopted a 3rd dog and prior to that had purchased another ecollar brand from Amazon, but that system only accommodated 2 collard max. Most of the collars I was looking at had a max of 2 collars and that was just going to be a pain to have to work 2 remotes. Im not sure how I discovered that this system could accommodate up to 9 receivers, but that definitely caught my attention! I actually 4 dogs total, so knowing I could put the 4th dog on with the other 3 and still only have 1 remote is great! So I ordered the remote with collar and then ordered 2 extra collars. For the price, Im amazed at all the features and functionality of the product. I love it so far! The collars(receivers) are a little big compared to others used in the past, but to me they almost look like bow ties and I thinks its cute on my 2 males dogs! The remote fits nicely in my hand, I appreciate the wrist strap that comes with it, these remotes (in general) tend to slip out of my hand easily so I really like the strap. Once you get the hang of the buttons, its pretty easy to switch through collars and type of corrections. I also love that the remote has a lock. These were very easy to set up, the instructions were clear and easy to follow. I did make the mistake of plugging all the collars in to charge them prior to reading the instructions and did end up setting a couple collars to the same number, but it was easily fixed. Another feature I love is the battery life for each collar and the remote. This is so helpful! I realize the collars have flashing lights on them, but in the past with another brand the lights would get covered by fur or I just wouldnt see them and I would go to tone my dog and find that the collar was dead. So Im loving the battery life displayed. The receivers were easy to put on the nylon collars and adjust as needed. The only minor issue I have noticed a few times is that there can be a tiny bit of delay between pressing the button on the remote and hearing the tone or seeing them react to the vibration. It has not caused me any issues and tends to happen after they have been idle a while. I understood these are cheaper but so far the quality is great and Im hopefully they will last a while! I will update my review as needed. I originally was super happy with the product, the instructions are very straight forward and clear and the collar easy to use…BUT !product details indicate 15 days stand by time for the reciever to hold charge ,manual says 40 daysand real life proves its only 5 days !!dont fall for this garbage this is all out the box !!!PLUS !to add insult to the mugging, i dont even have a month with the product and its already defective, it fails to respond many times, and the beep stays stuck , thankfully its not the vibration or shock that stays stuck… YETPURE GARBAGE !BUY ONLY IF YOU DONT HAVE ANYONE ELSE TO GIVE $39 DOLLARS TO AND WANT A DISPOSIBLE OVER PRICED COLLAR . I am writing this review after using the product for only two days. It has a sleek design and is not cumbersome for my dog. The three modes; Sound (beep), Vibration, and Static makes it a viable training tool. I have used the Sound mode the most since it allows me to change behavior with the least amount of input from the collar. I have only used the vibration mode once and it was so effective that I may never have to use the Static mode. Charging was quick on both the remote control and the receiver. I like that it has the silicone cover for the receiver electrodes to ensure no harm to my dog in case the Static mode was inadvertently used. Excellent product!

Notes from the Community

It arrived quickly in a box. It took me a few mins to put it together and to pair with my phone. Very easy and straight forward.I like the LED light have white, warm and yellow light and you can adjust the brightness to your liking. The phone holder is very sturdy and easy to adjust the angle. You can also adjust the LED light angle as well. I like that it doesnt take up much space and the flexibility of different adjustment. The 1st picture is taken without the light, and the 2nd picture is with the warm light setting. I like how the Cole is soft and warm, and shows more details of her fur. Highly recommended. Loved it my niece is a MKA and this was perfect, especially the ability to control the brightness and and the interchangeable light rings! This selfie ring light is well made. The Tripod is sturdy but lightweight, and the ring light is bright. The tripod can be set at various heights depending on the occasion, and yet it is very compact to carry around. It can be floor stand or on a desk, very flexible. The ring light has 3 modes: warm yellow, warm white, and white and 10 levels of brightness. It is suitable for all kinds of lightning needs. Also, the phone clip is easy to put on and secure the phone in place. I use this for selfies, and for video conferencing. It works really well. I like the height. It is about 5ft and works well when I stand up. I am 510. It also works on the desktop.I am mainly going to use it as a lighting source when taking pictures, not so much as a selfie. However, I did set it up with selfie and works as expected.I might just get the 2nd one to balance the lighting source when taking portrait in indoorsAs for the power source I used portable USB power bank The manual and the instructions are really easy to use. All I had to do was popping the ring light open and screwing it on the tripod. Its fairly simple direction and so easy to follow. The kit comes with the light ring, the tripod and bike attachment kit for a phone. Attaching the light ring to the tripod itself was easy enough. It took us a second to get the bike attachment kit put together, but once it was, it easily attached to the tripod. The whole setup is small enough to fit on our dining room table or desk, so simply a 9 year-old can use it. After setup was complete, its all done! We move it around in the house, and it remained intact. I would highly recommend this to everyone. This is a really nice starter selfie ring. I purchased this during the prime day sale to bring with me when I do make up at peoples houses. I didnt want to spend $80-$90 on a large ring light so spending the 30 this was was a better option for me for the purpose I needed it for. The circle itself is extremely small and the way the tripod extends is not the sturdiest since it just twists to lock. My first time using it, it wasnt very secure and ended up dropping down to condense to its original size. While I think it is a great value for the price point, I gave it four stars since its not the greatest quality compared to others on the market but if youre looking for a first time ring light, this is a great inexpensive option with different lighting options and intensities. I can really describe how much I love about this ring light. 1. It add this angle-ring look in your eyes, and it is super cool. 2. It has three color temperature setting, and can be adjusted easily to achieve either the cool look or the warm look. 3. This ring light is a continuous light where it is very useful to shoot home videos as well as portrait photos. 4. Due to the size (8) it is easy to carry around. 5. Multi-compatible with cell phone, action camera, DSLR, and point and shoot camera. This is my first ring light, cause might need taking some photos for my restaurant menu. A stable stand and the USB cord for the power. 3 color of light and 10 level of brightness. Totally recommend to you.

Notes from the Community

This stainless steel scale works really well for us. For the price you cant beat it.If you cook and bake a lot like we do, the scale helps achieve an accurate measurement. Its super convenient when a recipe calls for an ingredient in grams and you dont have the tools to measure, this scale is simple to use and accurate.In our video you can see it turns on quickly. You can change the unit while the item is on the scale. And it turns off within seconds.Weve used this scale many times over the last few years and we are still using the same AAA batteries it came with.The small grips on the bottom of the scale are nice to have.Overall its a great scale and even better price! Bought this scale to weigh my litter of puppies. Its fantastic so far. I just put a plate on it, tare the plate, and then set a puppy on it. Works like a charm. Would definitely recommend it. Plus its very nice looking. Great for the kitchen if thats what youre buying it for. This scale is terrible. It is true, you get what you pay for and I only paid $8. The weight reading continues to move up and down. I used a calibrated scale side by side and weighed 4 grams. This scale went back and forth from 3-5 while the other one gave exactly 4. Honestly wish I had spent a little extra money on a better scale. I work in law enforcement and need more precise weights than +/- 1. Edit 5/9/19 - So the seller asked if I would receive a new unit at this point to see if they could take care of the original issues I had with the first product. This unit seems to have fixed all of my original issues with the product over the past 2 weeks. They went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied. I would recommend.Original review - I meal prep and I bought this to weigh out all my food for the entire week and then cook. The one day I cook a week I use this scale for maybe a half-hour in total on time. I turn it off and then the next week I go to turn it on the batteries are dead. Ive changed the batteries everytime I use it essentially. This thing drains the battery even when not in use. Easy to use, pretty accurate scale, love the way it looks (very sleek and easy to clean since its a stainless steel top)The only issue i had is looking at the actual read out… Since the entire thing is pretty flat on the top, if you place any sort of decent sized bowl or plate, it completely obstructs the digital screen. You end up having to see if you can push back the bowl and get a look at while bending over to look under the curve of the bowl or placing a thinner box and the plate or bowl on top of the box.Honestly the scale would have been 5 stars but the fact you cant see the display without going through a mission is pretty annoying.EDIT: After giving it 3 stars Etekcity contacted me to let me know that they had a larger version and sent it free of charge, it was the Etekcity Digital Kitchen Scale Multifunction Food Scale with 30% Wider Platform 11lb 5kg, 3 GP Batteries Included (Stainless Steel), which pretty much negates the issue I mentioned above. And after I looked it up they have a newer version of the one I was sent that has the read out to the side which seems even more practical.For customer service alone, I had to raise my initial 3 stars to four! I just recently received this beautiful and most of all easy to use kitchen scale by Etekcity! This scale was extremely accurate and precise. When measuring cooking ingredients, I was relieved to know that the digital scale did not become imprecise, meaning bouncing back and forth between decimal points despite the unit changes when shifting to and from grams, ounces, and milliliters. Overall, the scale could also virtually fit anywhere in a kitchen (I.e., kitchen drawer, cabinet, on the counter etc.) In addition, the scale is quite nicely made and I suspect that it will be very durable and last me a long time! I considered long and hard about how to rate this product. It is designed to do one thing, weigh small amounts of food. It is aesthetically designed well. And that is as far as it goes in delivering on its intended function. The tare or zero function is coupled to the measuring function. Meaning, when you put a dish on the scale then zero the display, the resulting value will include the weight of your finger pushing the button. The product fails to do what it is advertised to do; accurately measure the weight of food. The designer must not be an engineer. I would recommend another product to weigh food. I will be returning this and finding a better product. When I do I will update this review with my findings. (I gave it two stars because. It looks nice) Not sensitive to low weights. The scale is almost useless for measuring out spices and yeast and other items which are in the low single digits of grams. You can only work around it by putting something heavy on the scale (like a plate), then putting the measuring paper on top of that and then pouring on the ingredient. The last scale I bought from Amazon did not have this problem.The scale is also grossly imprecise, on the order of 10-20%. This can be tested easily - put a cup on the scale and measure a significant amount of ingredients, say 14 grams of salt and 6 grams of sugar. Remove the cup and put a different cup on the scale, tare the weight, then pour in what should be 20 grams from the first cup. It will come out WAY different.This scale is basically trash. The last scale I bought from amazon was routinely accurate to within 1%.

Notes from the Community

I love the camera. It looks really nice, and works well.My only problem is the so-called instructions. They are REALLY poorly translated from Chinese, to the point of some paragraphs being completely incomprehensible. And the instructions are WAY too minimal. Anybody up for studying how the camera operates, how the features work, and writing a decent instruction manual?? 😁 This product is an addition to my insurance policy. It is a great help when someone dings my car and starts pointing I did it. California is famous for insurance scams involving accidents Im not paranoid just careful. Plus I want a memory card. When I received this camera and unpacked it I was totally impressed, the quality is super for the price. Works great and very easy to use and understand. I give this product a 10. If you need a car cam this is it. I received a broken product. The ring for tightening the holder is broken. Also, if you leave a 5-star review, you have a chance to receive a 16 GB SDcard. Is this correct? So far, so good! I hope I never need the camera footage! Great little dash cam! Absolutely wonderful camera and a God send in the area I live in, where people drive like their butts are on fire and dont pay attention to anyone else on the road. Gotta have that extra protection in case you get car insurance scammers, as I have had before! The only bad thing about this product is the absolutely HORRIBLE instruction manual they pack with it. It tells you almost nothing about how to use many of its features. Small enough to put in front of mirror not intrusive. Beautiful 1080p with auto correct. Easy to set up and it automatic once set up you dont have to think about it again unless you need it one of my best buys This is an excellent product. Im buying a second one for my wifes car

Notes from the Community

I like that I can use my phone to control the robot vacuum. I can set scheduleson my phone to have the robot start vacuum before I come home. And it knows when to go back to charging. It is thin and when its sweeping it is not loud. It noise is not loud enough to distract me from working. And I like that it has a water tank for mopping. Usually I turn it on for sweeping first to clean the trash and dust, then when Im home I switch the trash tank to water tank and put the cloth in its back for mopping. Saves me a lot of time cleaning the house. Also I have wooden floor at my house and I like that it goes through under the tables and bed to collect the dust. Expecially under the bed, it cleans up all the dust under it. The mopping function is good for mopping under the bed when I cant do it myself. And I like that it is thin enough to go under my TV drawer too. We are living in a very large house that has hardwood floors and this machine works wonders. My wife sets the robot using her phone while she is out, and the robot starts from base, cleans all the floors and returns back to base when finished. It is fully clad with optical sensors, so it wont get stuck, it wont roll down the stairs while it works its way quietly under any piece of furniture like your king size bed that you wouldnt want to move every week for cleaning. We have no carpets at home, so performance over carpets has not been tested, but I am sure it will do fine on carpets too. It is quiet and has high suction power for its size. Me and my wife both love this product… My first impression of this robot vacuum is that it is high quality and well made. I can use it right away after I took it out of the box so it seems like its already been pre-charged. The cleaning power is strong and the performance is surprisingly good. My down stairs is hardwood floor with a few rugs and it senses the different surfaces. My second floor is carpet and this M500 robot cleans well too. I love how it vacuums in straight rows to create that linen pattern in carpet surface. It also goes under my coffee table, bed and sofas. As soon as it get to the stairs it turns back around so no worry about falling off the stairs. Overall I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend it to my friend and families. I love this vacuum. i already have an irobot but I was looking for something with mopping functionality. I tested the suction power by having the irobot vaccum in the same space after the lefant and it didnt pick up anything. The llefant had picked up all of it. Also the lefant was sooo much more quiet. I actually lost this vaccum and couldnt locate it until i went looking for it because its ACTUALLY that quiet. that was completely unexpected but a great surprise! We watch him every day and sometimes use the remote control, because you can send Bob to the place you want him to go, unlike a family pet or a child. I used to take out a vacuum cleaner from the laundry every night to keep up with the amount of hair and crumbs here. Apart from the kitchen and bathroom, we all have carpets at home, and we are all allergic, so it is very important to keep the carpets clean. I dont know how we lived without him before. I havent cleaned it since he came. But if we can tell him that we are ready to go home, instead of going home when he is ready. It changed our life. We love him and highly recommend him! Wow this thing is great! I turn it on every night before bed and my floors are clean in the morning! It does sooo much better than I expected! It leaves nice lines in my carpet, which i love, and pick up all the crumbs and dog hair from the previous day. The dust compartment is pretty large and hold about 2-3 days worth of junk. It has never gotten stuck and we have a lot of obstacles like baby swings, jumpers, and very level floors. The remote is great if I want to spot clean during the day. Ive never seen a robot vacuum have that! Overall its a great prices vacuum that works just as well, if not better, than some of the more expensive name brands. Looking for a cheap robot vacuum that is not very noisy and also does its job extremely well? This is the vac for you! It is well design and is able to find its base all the time (from personal experience). It cleans carpet and wood surfaces with no problem and can even adjust its sucking strength depending on the amount of dirt it can detect. Overall I am 100% satisfied with this vacuum I call Jarvis! In order to prevent it from going to certain places I place large pillows as shown in a photo below and it can even clean a big carpet and even under the table, amazing! Wow this robo vacuum is great I had bought a similar item few years ago and for the same job this one does it a lot Quieter. Vacuums under my couches and tv stand. I cant say anything more than it up to the job. Keeps my house clean and ready! If you want big value for your money this is it. Remote controlled and also can connect to your phone. Awesome All over.

This camera is the best money ever spent. Just caught someone breaking in to my apartment to steal pain medication from my son a week after brain surgery. The guy the apartment sent to change the locks was the guy in the video!! This camera has worked well for me, a non-tech person. I have tried to answer as many of the common questions asked about this camera as I could.I am not sure why, but there is a lot of misinformation out there, especially in some of the top reviews. Some of the problems have been fixed in software updates, but much of the information is just not correct. Hopefully these reviews will be updated at some point.(Edit 8/11/2018 I have noticed many of those top reviews with bad info and most of those camera caught the thief video reviews are gone for some reason). You can download and watch videos on a PC with the free plan (in the last 24 hours) You can watch live stream on a computer via cloudcam.amazon.com You can turn off audio playback (from the app) You can invert the video (from the app) You can turn of the infrared night light (from the app)UNPACKAGINGPackage came on time and was without any damage, but there was no padding inside the shipping box. Included in the main box were the camera, USB cable, AC adaptor for 110 voltage, small setup manual, wall mount and two drywall screws (see photos).OVERALL FIRST IMPRESSIONSCamera seems well made and a little smaller than I thought it would be. All items were included and in good condition.The image on the live view in daylight was good (see photo), images appeared sharp and easy to identify. Sound was crystal clear. I turned on the TV, went into another room and was easily able to watch the TV and hear the sound very clearly when it came through. There were some breakups of the sound at times though, making me miss some of the audio detail. But night vision is dark and grainy, it is not easy to make out itemsSETUPSet up took me less than 11 minutes which includes downloading the app and logging into all accounts. I am not a big tech guy but setup was quite easy. Basically you just plug the camera in to the AC adapter, download the Amazon Cloud Cam app to your phone, wait for the blue blinking light on the camera to change to a pulsating blue and green light, and you will hear a chime sound. This means the camera is ready for setup. Then you just hit the setup button on your phone and in about 3 minutes it is working. I am using a Moto E as my video source and for the app.HOW IT WORKSYou can watch live view or see the video clips the camera took upon it detecting movement. It quickly took several short videos detecting movement when I walked around. I also received a sound and text notice on my phone of Motion detected every time it detected motion and took a video, and when I touch the notice it will play the video for me. I do seem to get a lot of We were unable to play this video error codes when I first try to play the video, but usually it will play when I hit the blue replay button. I have not upgraded my plan so I will only get the last 24 hours of video. It does not take pictures but you can easily do this by just taking a screenshot (see photo) on your android phone, normally this is just hitting the power button and volume button at the same time. Or you could do a Print Screen on your computer when viewing recorded video clips. You can view the recorded videos AND download video clips from a PC with the free plan, just go to www.amazon.com/clouddrive, sign in, then when watching your videos in the upper right hand corner there is a download icon. You can also view live feed or videos up to 24 hours any time with the basic included plan on your cell phone or computer.GLASS WINDOWSIt will take video through a window as it can detect movement. Image for me was still pretty good. But at night the infrared light will glare badly on the windows blurring your view almost completely. You can turn off the infrared light via the app though, and using just a porch light I captured cool videos of many animals at night.WHAT I DO NOT LIKEIn my opinion this camera has poor night vision. It does have the ability to see live view from a computer even though many reviews say you cannot do this. Just go to cloudcam.amazon.com to set it up.I set this camera up to watch my car in my driveway as a test, but at night even at low sensitivity it goes constantly, recoding everything. OK, no problem yet. But when I go to Amazon Drive, I see a lot of recorded videos that I just want to delete. But as of now, I have to look at each one individually, and then hit the delete button each time. I would think this could be MUCH easier. I might take a star off for this in the future (maybe it is just something I do not see or have figured out?).Edit: Thx to Regolith who gave me an option to quickly delete the videos, see his/her two comments under the comments section, they worked well for me. It can work for the phone or the computer.ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS ASKED You can download videos to a PC on the free plan in the last 24 hours You can view live stream on a PC via cloudcam.amazon.com It has no local SD storage Sound plays very clearly and loud You can turn off audio playback It only records if it detects movement This is an indoor camera only, it is not waterproof You can turn the camera on/off through the app When the camera detects motion, you receive a text and sound alert via a cell phone You can turn off the IR (infrared night light) It does not pan or zoom Night vision is dark and grainy, not easy to make out photos While camera viewing is wireless, it requires a wire to power it (it is not battery operated) You can have the camera image rotate 180 degrees for ceiling mounting Does not require a base station (some do, I have no idea what a base station is for)THOUGHTSI have not owned another camera to influence me one way or another.I have continuously updated this review as I have used and tested this camera out. Sorry to write so much, I know most people do not like detailed long reviews but I always write what I would want to know about an item before I make a purchase. Any misinformation please let me know or if you have any questions please ask via comments, I will answer what I can. Its a nice camera. Good quality and compact size. Capturing the sound is good, although not the best quality vs other cameras. The biggest issue and I think most important, is the camera will NOT send you a motion alert until AFTER the event has concluded. So if someone is in your home and the motion is constant, the camera will continue to capture the event, but NOT report it to you until motion has stopped. So that may when the person is leaving your place… Not three weeks after installing the Amazon Cloud Cam I received an alert of motion at our hunting cabin. There should not have been anyone there and I was surprised to find video of someone breaking-in and collecting our tools and hunting gear to take with him. I was not able to catch him in real time, but I was able to alert the Sherriff Dpt. within minutes of him leaving. With the 25 separate videos of the suspect the cloud Cam provided, the Sherriff Dpt. were able to quickly find him, our property, and put him in jail. Well worth the price of admission to put a bad guy in jail. We ordered this camera on thanksgiving just because it was on sale. It was delivered by Saturday and I installed it immediately. Sunday my family and I went out of town and I was excited to be able to watch our dog through the cloud cam app. On the way home Sunday evening, I received a notification that motion was detected. I open the app and see that my house had caught on fire and my dog was stuck inside. After calling 911 and a neighbor to break in to rescue our dog, I reopened the app to see the entire room filled with smoke and the fire blazing in the kitchen. Luckily this app saves videos for a week so I was able to share them with our fire department. I was also able to download the videos as well as zoom in to see what caused the fire (my dog hit the stove burner on). The camera is now melted and ruined, but I am forever grateful. I will order another one when we can live in our home again. Thank you Amazon for the sale and thank the universe nothing worse happened! I got the Amazon Cloud cam to see what my cats do during the day. Today, I had left the house and was out running errands. I got an alert that motion was detected in my Kitchen. I looked at the live view and saw a person had broken into my home. I used the microphone feature and yelled at him to get out of my house and told him the police were on the way. He immediately left. Thank you Amazon - without my cloud cams, this could have had a very different ending.
