This simulated switch ALSO makes it work with SmartThings . ... using ifttt, SmartThings can arm and disarm the camera as part of it's security arming routine. ... You have to log into the SmartThings web app to create the simulated switch (not the mobile app) and then it's easy peasy.  ...  "

comment
" ...  I wanted to return the system, as it is quite an expensive investment for something that is completely useless for the purpose I need. ... So, I missed the return date by a couple of days because I was making final arrangements and at the funeral home. ... I sent a message to the company (an Amazon owned company) and requested that they allow me to return the item, even though I was just a couple of days outside of the 30 day return policy, I cant use the item, and I had a pretty legit reason for missing the return cutoff. ... And, I rarely, very rarely, return things to Amazon even though I'm a frequent shopper. ... I think I returned something once 3 years ago, so that should give you some idea of how disappointed I am with this product.  ...  "

" ...  This product was solid, I have a long apartment and needed a camera on both sides of my apartment, front door and back door and I was worried about the connection with the distance between the four units (Wi-Fi router, 2 cameras, and the receiver box) but the connection was fine there's even apart in the settings for each camera within the app that lets you see the connection status to both the receiver box and the Wi-Fi signal for the camera.  ...  "

" ...  I love that there are no monthly fees (dislike: the storage can fill up very quickly but I’m sure if there was a monthly fee to pay there would be plenty more storage. ...
