    "I really wanted a security camera to put outside the house to make me feel safer being at home all day. I like that it is wi-fi and I don't have to mess with any wires. However the video isn't so great. The camera records, but only after the person leaves so I don't know who came knocking on my door. I did get notified but that was about it. I'm sure there are better cameras out there."

    "These cameras were a nightmare to set up. I had so many issues figuring out the router, etc. I know it's probably user-error though. Anyway, I finally have them up and running and three of them work properly. The fourth must be a dud. I don't know if it's worth the hassle to return them now though, so I'll live 3/4 and call it a day."

    "I absolutely love my GW Security Hidden Spy CCTV Security Camera. As someone who regularly has strangers in my house -- a babysitter for my daughter Anjali, a walker for my dog Fido, the delivery folks from the new Amazon Key service -- it's incredibly invaluable to me to keep tabs on who's doing what. It's absolutely impossible for anyone to detect the GW even if you're looking for it -- it's practically camouflage. And unlike those grainy 7-11 security footage you see on the nightly news, these things FLY when it comes to resolution. I can see the pimple on the dogwalker!"
