I really like being able to download clips from SD card to iPhone!

I purchased an Amcrest WiFi video doorbell for testing to see if I should put it on my recommendation list. The wide angle video is clear even at night, the motion sensing works well, the notifications are quick, and the two way talk/listen works well.

The doorbell can be added to an Amcrest NVR/DVR for those with multiple cameras, and that’s another way to view security video.

This app continues to improve, recently adding the ability to download important video clips from the SD card in the doorbell to my iPhone for my records.

I use and recommend this device and app.

As of 12 June 2020, here is my remaining wish list, respectfully submitted.

1. Users are required to sign up for an Amcrest account in order to use the app and access the doorbell. Use of an intermediary should be strictly optional and there should be a way to connect to the doorbell directly without going through an external server or service.

2. The built-in web-based access to the device just doesn’t work. Maybe some documentation would help.

Come on amcrest

Bought the hub and 2 battery cameras. Was pretty easy to setup. Does have some issues with the mic and speakers. Mic on one camera only works about 1 out of every 5 times I’ve enabled and the speaker on the other has a humming sound. Have not powered off by pulling the battery but hope that clears it up. Not a deal breaker cause not real concerned with speaking or hearing so much. Video is real good overall. Now to the app. It works but lacks some common features. Please add the ability to create motion activation zones. Who wants to get 500 alerts a day when a car drive down the road. Also, give me the ability to download a recorded video to my phone or upload to google drive. Seems the only way to do this is by using their cloud service which does have a free option but sounds like they are just trying to force you into a subscription. 3 stars for hardware and app. App alone soft 2.

Update:
Thanks for the update that allows downloading sd card recordings. Only issue is you have to be on the same WiFi as the hub to download. So you still can’t download while away from your home. One other thing that would be nice is when I get an alert it should tell me which camera the alert is coming from instead of always saying from hub. Maybe there is a way to change this but I’ve been unable to find. Thanks

Disappointed

I bought the Hub and it included 2 cameras and apart I bought 2 more. All very easy to activate and mount them. They look all very good. What I am disappointed in is that in the same application you can add the Cloud Recording but it is fatal and complicated, no matter how many times you go to support, oh you send a ticket to receive help you cannot communicate with anyone. Apparently the easiest thing is to charge you and nothing else. They do not have a package that includes several cameras for one price, but each camera will pay separately. I decided to pay for 2 cameras and that has only happened to charge me but nothing of help and much less I have not been able to activate the Cloud recording for the cameras. Horrible customer support and service. They should be more prepared to help when people call because they just keep escalating the call but no one knows anything for sure, and I still have the problem unsolved. So I’m only giving them 3 ⭐️ because the cameras are good, but the service and support system and charge is not good.
