I WOULD NEVER BUY ZMODO AGAIN
I got a 4-camera package off Woot a few months back. I hate it so much, I'm making my first product comment on Woot.
1) the interface is awful. Full of "made in china" typos, it's almost impossible to use. Like your Mac or iPhone? This is completely the opposite.
2) speaking of Mac ... the website doesn't work on Macs. Yes, it's in a web browser, they could have easily designed a universal interface ... but no, you're 100% screwed if you have a Mac. (the supposed Mac app didn't work at all-- check its 1 rating in the App Store)
3) So I got the iPhone app. Useless. The reliability of the network connection it sends is atrocious. It sends a signal, but continuously drops one camera or another -- which makes NO sense from a networking perspective ... it's the DVR sends the signal, not the individual camera... so how could it drop only one camera?? Yet I get "Network not found" type messages on one or 2 cameras EVERY time I use the app.
So if something happens downstairs while I'm home, do you think I'll be able to quickly check my app and see who's down there? Not likely.
4) The quality of the saved video is vastly lower than watching it on a monitor ... even after I've (supposedly) maximized all the quality settings. So I probably won't even be able to make out the Perp's face afterwards.
Anyway ... That's my experience, please do your research, and know how awful this product it is. And Woot -- please, don't sell Zmodo crap again!!!
