Less than 24hrs after install
As a new user, I’ve already discovered a few nuances about this application. I have noticed that it does not update any of the user settings setting from device to device when all devices are on the same network and wi-fi. If I change it from iMac, or iPhone, or iPad, it should update news settings for everything. But it doesn’t. Not sure if this only works from the control panel, but if so, that kind of defeats the purpose, right?
Also, I’ve looked into renaming 1 of my outside cameras, via user manual to a new name besides the “camera model name” that the technician forgot to rename for me, but it doesn’t appear I’m privy to changing it. And I’m speaking specifically about the Trigger name, not the Recording Rules name. I.e. When Object Detection is reported by ADC-VC826. I also looked into the advance setting on the panel...zilch...nodda...nope!
Service is ok for a simple system. However, considering the system runs on WiFi, there is always some form of troubleshooting issue. I can never play my SVR and after troubleshooting, it will say device found but when I go to playback video again, there is another message to troubleshoot. My upstairs panel always need to be reconnected and is always losing internet which is annoying in the middle of the night when you’re trying to sleep and can’t find a way to just turn the panel off since it isn’t working and shining bright in the room. Seems as tho CPI needs to find a better way to offer service other than through WiFi. I would hate for something to happen at my home and need video and can’t even access it. They should definitely think about updating their service in a different manner. To have 4 cameras and not be able to playback video on them is ridiculous. I mean I understand people put up cameras for show sometimes but we actually would like to keep an eye on our property. Not sure if this issue is a service issue or an app issue. But it definitely is a CPI issue.
Delayed doorbell & other camera feed
Personally. I would not have service today with CPI had it not been for the 3.5 year contract I signed. As I think back - this is why CPI require lengthy contracts...they know their company has issues. I use another monitoring company for my rental properties. I receive real time video feed/notifications every time motion is detected. Video is then saved automatically for future viewing. Not the case with CPI. My door bell camera detect motion, however the video footage is selectively pixelated, with some people totally removed from the footage. Once movement cease, the camera goes back to normal. You can hear commotion but bodies are pixelated or vaporized. I reported this several times to CPI and advised them this issue seems wrong and selective. It has been 2.5 years and nothing has changed. So I have had to buy a secondary (not via CPI) camera to capture all live footage. When I call CPI customer service to report what’s happening, no one has answers. They blame it on the equipment. Ummm. I am under contract so why do they care about delivering an actual service that I pay for. I do not recommend CPI.
