This camera is pretty good. The betattery life without being plugged in is very low, under 1 hour.

The picture is quite clear both in light and when it's dark. The motion detection is very good and you can choose a direct area to monitor to avoid picking up pets or other smaller areas.

You can set up timed schedules, which is good, but not great for people who work shifts as this obviously moves across days/weeks.

Pairing with a door sensor is good so when a door opens the camera recordings, but it would be better if it were able to stop monitoring after a period of inactivity.

Aesthetically attractive, this tiny little camera is really impressive. It sends short notification videos to my phone/iPad of any sound or motion detected. Good night vision monitoring and very clear daytime pictures. My previous security camera was unreliable and often went offline which was pretty useless, also it would only work with WiFi. The only criticism is the high price, but I suppose you get what you pay for.

Brilliant addition to our ability to monitor our pet dog when we are not there and which seamlessly links in with our Hive and Alexa.
Night vision is awesome with an impressive field of view and the ability to mike in on Live View is clever. The colour rendition is pretty awesome too.
A great camera which suits our needs 100%. It also adds another dimension to our home's CCTV system when we are away and the ability to set schedules etc is very handy.

Over the last 4 yrs I've used many different security / safety products including 4 different makes of cameras. This has been to wrap a technology ‘care blanket' around a vulnerable person with failing health. As different challenges arise so solutions have been sought. CCTV has become integral to ensuring the person's safety and wellbeing. Hive is one of several solutions but by far the best. Product quality is very high and it delivers. The only one tiny criticism is that you need a Hive subscription via British Gas who hold the data on their ‘cloud'. I'm not at all a fan of subscription based services as it takes away independence and your reliant on Big Brother.
That said this camera as another of my Hive add-ons is very good. Set up is easy, picture quality both light and dark is high and appearance is nice. As part of the overall Hive set up it offers flexibility as you can customise it to deliver notifications or to interact with other Hive products such as motion sensors or light bulbs. Overall Hive itself is definitely a market leader in so called Smart Home technology and I do recommend it

Makes a superb baby monitor!!! Baby cameras are a stupid price for what they are and low quality, so I purchased a second one to use as a baby monitor. Later I will use it in the house. We use a baby sound a movement system as well (FYI) when baby cries we just look at phone hive. It's perfect and won't have to sell it on eBay after baby is grown up.

Camera is super quality and as long as you have a WiFi extender or router close by all is good.

The camera is very useful, you can use it for surveillance, check up on your pets or check in on your property whilst away. Set up is pretty straight forward and even easier if you have the Hive system already. Simply use the app to connect the camera to the hub, follow the on screen instructions and you're away in no time. You use the app to control the camera and set up your routines and automations.

The camera has sound and motion sensors. The camera can distinguish between pets and humans, this is very handy for those who have pets and don't want the sensors being continuously triggered by their cats or dogs. You can set it so you get notifications on your phone (or even smart watch) via the app and also by email. The app's notification is more instant and the email notification less so.

The best thing about this camera is that you can use the camera with other Hive products like door sensor, lights, smart plug etc. You can use them together for integrated functionality eg If the camera captures a motion or spots an intruder you automate it so it turns on the lights. Unlike some of it competitors the Hive View comes with free access to your recordings for 24 hours, meaning you have access to any recordings captured by the camera for 24 hours, if this isn't enough you can pay £5 a month for 30 day access.

The camera itself is really good, it's well designed, it's sleek and stylish with a nice black and brushed copper finish. It looks inconspicuous placed in the background and the only thing that gives it away is the infrared light. It has good features like night vision, wide angle view, 2 way audio and good clear picture quality. However it is let down by a few things eg. The hub sometimes loses connection meaning you wont receive notifications from the camera. The camera can be used without being mounted or plugged in, but the battery will only last an hour. The camera is also very pricey, almost like you're being punished for buying into the Hive system. At the time of writing this there is no google or Alexa support only IFTTT.

If you're in need of a smart security camera and you already have the Hive system then you should give this a go, other wise there are other options out there with similar features that are much cheaper. Hope this helps.
