    "Something or someone had been damaging my fence at night and I wanted to figure out what it was. The Reolink IP PoE Security Camera has night vision and a 65 foot range. It worked perfectly and I was able to determine a neighborhood dog was trying to get in my fence. Problem solved."

    "I set this camera up outside my garage to monitor activity in my yard. I love the industrial look of it; it's very sleek and imposing. I also like the quality of the night vision; it picks up very good video, even in the dark. The motion alerts come through promptly, and I haven't had any false alarms or anything. However, the set up for this camera was a struggle. The software was not intuitive, and it took me ages of prodding around in the settings, before finally having to ask a friend who is very good with computers to help me. Now that it's set up, it's great, but definitely make sure you have a techie on hand!"

    "Cameras are necessary to feel safe in your home or at your business. They can help patrol the area and aid in investigations among other things. I think this camera is good but not great. It does have recording features but lacks the necessary features to view your video or watch live which would need to be bought separately. It is a pro that it is waterproof but really lacks a lot of the more advanced features to be considered a great outdoor camera in today's technical perspective. "

    "The security camera is okay for the price. For it being an outdoor camera, you think it would have night vision on it. I get constant alerts whenever something is near the camera, like the sun or a bug. It is very sensitive and goes off all the time. It is quite annoying. I also have to pay a fee every month. I'm sure I could find something better."

    "One of the best things about the Canary Flex Security Camera is that it is wireless and works with Alexa. If you are a fan of Amazon or Alexa in general, you're going to love this camera.
