    "This is a great security camera system for the price and it performs well in all of its advertised features. The video quality is hard to beat in this price range. The only con is that you can't live stream while recording."

    "SimpliSafe SSCS2 is an okay product. The battery changing and dealing with batteries is my main complaint. Despite few false alarms, the motion sensor is legit. If I am in need of an easy DIY setup for a home security system again, I will keep SSCS2 as a choice to consider."

    "This is a good solution to the topic. While it is not a whole home security system it is a security camera where you can get alerts based on motion. There is night vision and 2 way audio. While this is just one camera you can add more. Again while this is a great camera it is only a good solution since it really isn't a whole system but a piece of it. "

    "This isn't a technically bad camera, but I ended up returning it because I thought it was too expensive for the value it delivered. I did like its clear HD video, and its ability to communicate with Alexa. But a better price point is around $100."

    "This is easy to set-up, but many of the features have glitches or inconveniences. The motion-sensor alert doesn't always work as one would want, for example. Further, the battery life isn't especially long, so this wouldn't be useful for monitoring for long periods of time. The video quality is good and the night feature is also of high quality. "
