    The way I read it is that only applies when you're on the home monitoring package - camera's, water leak sensors, smoke alarms etc etc. There's no link to any faq's etc directly from the shop and hiding it in the faq's wouldn't stand up - it's a purchase not a rental agreement, equally I wouldn't expect them to upgrade it every 3 years which is also mentioned. The faq's also refer to data security and hack1ng concerns in 2017 so looks like it just hasn't been updated for a while.

    Yep I agree, That's the way I eventually figured it must be - and there were no conditions mentioned at the point of purchase and I didn't sign any agreements.

    Doesn't help that just googling Neos smartcam brings up that site though. I was just looking for the Faqs to find out how to delete recordings from the app but certainly got a bit worried when I spotted that clause in the faqs.

    There is no subscription or anyting with the Smart Cam, they do offer other products that are linked to home automation, this isn't.

    It's a 20 camera that's fucking spot on if you ask me.

    I find it impressive, but I've not used any other cameras for comparison.

    I will upload some sample footage that I have at the moment. Currrently I have them pointing out my windows front and back until I get my external ones sorted.

    I know that now, however they arrived yesterday, I set them up, found I needed some info and went googling for them and that faq was at the top of the list - easy mistake to make.

    They are a stunning bit of kit for 20 quid or so and I'll certainly be ordering more.

    Got mine today. It blows the socks of my old D-Link cameras. Easy to set up and it also works when connected to a usb power pack. I agree that not being able to delete false alarms in the app is a pain. I'm gonna try and find a weather proof housing for it.

    Just curious how long people's alarms are taking to come through to the app?. Both of my 2 seem to take 30-40 minutes - I'm at home with my phone one the same wifi as the cameras currently but turning wifi off and using the 4g signal on my phone doesn't make any noticeable difference.

    Mine tend to come through within 10 seconds.

    Remember the cams are not 5ghz compatible, if that makes any diff?

    Nope only got them on a 2.4ghz link.

    I'm starting to wonder if it might be because I've put memory cards in so they don't get uploaded to the cloud as quickly because Neos prioritises a local copy to save on its bandwidth and cloud storage.

    These are exactly the same as the wyze cams, I have 2 wyze cams, the v2 cube and the pan. Both are excellent. The app software is really good also, dont have the issue with deleting false alarms that some are reporting. Only issue is the wyze skill isn't available on the UK alexa skills list. So won't work with an echo show. Managed to frig it thinking I was in the US and got it to work, but lost it again when set back to the UK.

    Should mention I have been running two outdoor in the housing for a few months now.

    Apart from some obvious flaws IE the 12 second record time, and no re-recording for 5 minutes after, I can't fault then for the price.

    Black Friday, two for 29.99, about 35 inc. postage. I don't have any but looking at this thread they seem decent!

    Mine still going strong.

    I upgraded to the boost package, made a great camera even better.
