Love the app!!!

I love this app. It’s not often you find a great app that does exactly what you were hoping. I don’t use all the functions but I’m sure they work fine. My main function is motion detecting my mailbox. Everyday around the same time I get a notification my mailbox is open and I look forward to it. I know that sounds may sound lame but trust me it’s cooler than you think. At least for me. I have a long driveway and would go back and forth to check the mail not knowing if mail had been delivered. With this app as soon as my mailbox is open BAM notification. I may use other functions later on but for now it fixed a minor issue for me that just makes my quality of life a tiny bit better. Also the battery life for my motion detector is amazing! And the ability to monitor that is super cool. Anyway thanks guys for a great product. I look forward to utilizing more of it’s functions in the future. If I could think of one thing I’d change it would be adding the ability to turn of the repeat alarm. I understand it is for the best for many users but for me I only need one notification that my alarm has been triggered. So a simple toggle for that would be cool. Thanks again!

Awesome but

I was very skeptical about purchasing the Kangaroo Video Doorbell with Chime because I was so worried it was going to be like every other video doorbell. Where you pay out the yin yang for the door bell and then they want you to pay a yearly service fee just to get a picture sent to your phone. I am really glad I finally decided to pull the trigger and purchase the Kangaroo Video Doorbell with Chime. It’s better than I expected. My only three issues with this device is one the volume of the chime. Even set as high as it will go; it’s still pretty quiet. My other issue is also with the chime and that’s the lack of ring melodies. Your only given 2 melodies. Kangaroo and Ding Dong. Kangaroo is really low volume where as Ding Dong is louder but still rather low considering it’s suppose to alert you someone is at your door. I really wish they would add more melodies as well as make them a bit louder. My house isn’t that big but if I’m in my bedroom without my phone. There is no way I can hear either included chime from my bedroom. My third issue is with the premium add-on plan PPP. I don’t like paying for anything annually and really wish they would allow customers to have the option of paying monthly at the same price. Other than these three small issues. The app is fantastic and really easy to use. I will be a return customer and be adding onto my security system with more Kangaroo 🦘 products! Customer for life!

Easy Install Doorbell Camera Lacking

I was super excited to finally purchase this product line for securing my new home after waiting for my closing. It arrived quickly and looked exactly as pictured. The doorbell camera is a little larger than I envisioned. Setup of the security system was effortless and the app made it a breeze. The motion and entry sensors are perfect! I am however extremely disappointed in the pictures from the doorbell camera. It took about an hour for it to start to take pictures and when it did, it left much to be desired. I was not expecting it to be on par with some of the more expensive options but I did expect to at least be able to see colors. The exposure is awful and the delay between the ring on the doorbell and the alert to my phone almost makes it unusable. I held out hope that night vision would be better and was again disappointed. I think I’ll have to go with a dual system for doorbell cam and security because I really am impressed with the security portion with the exception of the siren needing to be a little louder.

Edit: Also the siren has updated 2 times in the middle of the night and, since it talks when doing so, scared the living daylights out my family.
