The set up was simple. I read a couple reviews that claimed it was a pain but in minutes I had the two cameras up and running without a glitch. The only beef was that the devices couldn’t be more than five metres from a wi-fi hub. After installing the app I added each camera and presto – instant home video security. The system can handle up to 16 cameras. The two camera kit I bought from the Apple Store cost $229 CDN and individual cameras go for about $130.
The Philips In.Sight performs well and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a budget home video surveillance system. The low light isn’t the best but that’s to be expected given what it is.
