I plugged the camera in to charge and a woman's voice told me to download the app to get started!

Ok Schoon, tell us what you think.  I've decided that there will never be a camera system that will integrate with smartthings.  Not one that I like.

I have not had time to do much with Homeboy and SmartThings, but I am optomistic. SmartThings, HomeBoy and UBI all work really well with IFTTT. I think IFTTT could be the glue to bring it all together.

 

I stuck it to the steel siding on the house and it stayed connected to my WiFi. I need to find something to mount it in.

I'm looking for a system that would integrate with SmartThings and allow me to capture video.  Alerts are great but I want to capture and view later.  I would also like to avoid DropCam like pricing.  I was thinking of dedicating a Synology NAS to do it.  NAS, Licenses, Cameras.  Expensive but 30 days of dropcam is $299 annual.

When it senses motion it captures video. Or from the app you can request a video capture.

Where does that recording go and how long can you access it?
