This thing was installed in our house when we purchased in 2006. It looks like utter junk so I have never bothered to turn it on or work out how to use it!

I have 2 TP-Link NC 200 cams ($65 each) with motion detection and email notifications. Works OK (you got 5 pics per motion detection, every 30secs I think) but the free version doesn't include cloud storage, only live streaming...

System looks very clever.




We just have a normal alarm system.

Security lights at the front door, and a monitored alarm for when we're out, but currently considering a camera system so this is very much of interest (please).

I don't currently have a video security solution, so this would be great!

A motion sensor light and a huge, gruff looking neighbour that spends most of the time in his garage keeping an eye on our place.

We don't currently have anything, unless you count the obviously fake camera out front.




We've been meaning to get something for the last six months or so and this definately looks like a good option.  It's a shame they're only 720p - I'd rather pay a bit more for higher resolution.  I know 720p can be plenty if the photo is good, but if the burglar is not polite enough to give a good shot then I'm worried it isn't enough.




What do you think about posting a more detailed review of CleverLoop, e.g. how you found their motion detection, pets, resolution quality, upload issues in NZ, etc.

ElCheapo Locally made system that came with the house. A few PIRs dotted here and there. Since it's attached to a phone line and I'm running Naked DSL it is next to useless.

I currently use the pin dagger system. quite unique, and the kids hate it when I ask then turn it on as they leave for school, but forget it's on when they get home.


No one likes to turn it off.
