Makes a good nanny cam
I gave this 4 out of 5 stars
The Pyle PIPCAM is an HD 720p camera. It is a plastic camera. There is a plastic piece on the bottom that can be mounted to a wall or wherever to install the camera in a stationary location. It is a wireless camera but it must be plugged into a power source to work. It comes with a USB cord about 60 inches long and a wall adapter. So if you wanted to mount this on an upper wall, the cord probably would not reach to plug it in. There is a CD included to operate and watch the camera from the computer. There is an app to download to use the camera with your phone. Since my computer does not have a CD drive I used the phone app. It does not come with directions but they are sent to your email address. Make sure you save that email because you will need it. After setting up the camera I opened the app. There are options to take snapshots and record video. Those were saved to my phone and I watched them thru the app. There are other options but they did not work. There is also a slot for microSD cards. I put one in and I could not record to it. The camera picture isn't too bad. It looks best in regular light. I had my camera aimed outside in the sunshine and the picture was washed out, it was too bright to see anything. It is a good nanny cam or monitoring a pet. It could be better but it is a decent camera. I received this item at a discounted rate to try in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
