Re: Home monitoring camera

I havent noticed any major pixels on mine.. 
Mind you not often viewing FULL screen on the PC or anything either.. mostly from the pad or my phone.
For what its worth, it works well Smiley Happy
A full weeks recording it more than ample enough for me with the 64g card Smiley Happy


What worries me, yeah, is that the outdoor one is not a sealed unit.  It says its weatherproof.. but.. still make me very leary.

 

Likely will look 3rd party for a different one for outdoors.  
Trick is, i need to find one with the right recording capabilties..
That either:
A) records to a local card, etc in the camera which can be then connected to and viewed

B) can be set to record to a local network store (i have a server on 24/7)
I dont want to get one that requires for its storage to be cloud stored.. often they require a monthly fee.. or that only does LIVE.  (and want to avoid getting a WHOLE system with sperate dvr box)

Re: Home monitoring camera

thanks

yes i called rogers yesterday and he did something at thier end but it did not work so we switched off hte extender and started it and it worked.

My concern is that there is always something everyday i have to call about..  

the extender was placed in the garage so its closer to camera but its far from router. My router or moden is on hte main floor , so i am even suprised as to why i need an extender. 

also another point is rogers upgraded using protectron requipment i think, can that be aproblem ? this is really fraustrating. I had thought the product should not be flakey since its been around for years now

Re: Home monitoring camera

Hello @bashorund

Honestly it seems the system needs a overhaul and needs some improvments on the camera and overall system as well. It shouldn't be flaky and it shouldn't require the camera to be so close to the router it self. I know its due to the internet and such but that's no excuse.

I don't think that is the problem to be honest but it might.

Re: Home monitoring camera

Hello @bashorund

I have a Canary Camera which records 1080P feed and records audio. This does not come with Rogers. You have to buy the camera on ur own and use it with its own app. It doesn't work with Rogers Smart Home Monitoring. So u have its own app and does eveything for u that way.

The camera that is provided by Rogers is a iCamera2 which is only 720P and does not record audio. Apparently Rogers is in the works for a 1080P version but not coming out until later date.

Yes i also have the little black squared one in my foyer and the canary camera in my living room.

Re: Home monitoring camera

Hello @bashorund

Ask them to send their best tech and have them see where they can place the router in a better place for the camera. Again don't leave the camera on, on the touchpad as that it self will cause alot of buffering and problems but the router move it around.

Hopefully in the next wave of updates and new product's they don't need the router to be near the camera

Re: Home monitoring camera

oh i see. So you have this canary camera and also the rogers home monitoring. I had though of getting one of the camera at best buy/costco, , but installation is costing like 1700! and also it wont be montiored. so if there is any problem i have to pay for technician to come look at it.

Re: Home monitoring camera

Hello @bashorund

The Canary camera does include monitoring but at a additional cost just like Rogers has their plans. Also they have a very different setting then Rogers does. So its all together different.

The install fees are $149 per camera at Best Buy. Depends on how many cameras and what not. I can see if they can give a good deal as i work there lol.
