Bought this to catch a thief stealing off our patio. Set up was straight forward. Quality is good, although no night vision. Record by motion detection is ok, but not sure I would be able to get a quality photo if the thief came to my patio. Also, takes a lot of photos and clogs up my email, although modifying sensitivity helped the problem. Great for peace of mind when away for the weekend. I could see this being a great baby/nanny monitor. App for live streaming is cool. Pretty much does what it says it does, for a great price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
