I recently received my $65 doorbell + batteries + chime ordered of aliexpress

 

I installed using my iphone 7 plus as the viewer I suppose you would call it. Found the app through supplied qr code

 

setup less than 5 minutes no seriously!

 

So not making any money of this or affiliated etc but I feel I can recommend as a good unit amongst the thousands on aliexpress.

 

If anything its only 2 faults would be cant view image on my apple watch and same goes for my alexa

 

but $65 NZD !!

Looks cool. Free 7 day cloud storage too.

Does it tell you where is your data kept, and what they use it for?

Remember to consider that these cheap cloud connected devices may rarely see a security update, and could be quite easily used to gain access into your home/office network.

Also, I am assuming the video footage is stored on servers in China, which promotes heavily the use of facial recognition systems.
If I was the Chinese government I would pay to use the facial and location data from users all over the globe 😉
(Not saying that is happening here)

I havnt looked to be honest I dont think I setup the cloud hosting and me trying to stop someone accessing my system I wouldnt know where to start trying to stop them :) Didnt I see that the expensive Ring product had issues with access?

Hi gnfb. 

 

 

 

Looks interesting. So it runs without the cloud account? Is it possible to save to a network drive or NAS at all?

 

 

 

Cheers
