Getting this camera setup is easy., and this is how I did it

Before mounting the camera, I installed a micro SD card as per the instructions., and attached the antenna. Then I download the app, connected the Ethernet cable from your router and powered up and followed the instructions in the manual. Once I got the camera working after scanning in the code., I changed the password, set the correct date and time zone, and setup the motion parameters and shut off the capability to record all the time. When you have the motion parameters set up it will record only when motion or a human is detected.. That saves data space on the micro SD card. Then I setup the WIFI through the app.. After setting the WIFI, I unplugged the power and Ethernet cable and then I powered the unit via a long extension cord to find a suitable place to locate the camera where I had a good WIFI signal. I didn't want to drill a hole and mount the camera in a location with a poor signal... I found a desirable location and hung the camera.. No problems that way.

When hanging this camera the hole required to run the wire's through is quite large. There are 3 wires... the Ethernet wire being the largest one.. I didn't want to drill a hole that large so I built a small box out of plywood to hang the camera on and put all the wiring inside it. I used an outside extension cord to supply the power and I only had to drill a hole the size of that cord. All the other connections are placed inside the box out of the way, with only one wire coming out of the top of it to where the camera is attached.

I am really happy with the quality of the daytime image as well as the nighttime image. You can hear what's going on and you can talk to people outside. So many great things to say about this camera. Price is great. Easy to set up and get connected. You can adjust the motion detection sensitivity and choose a specific areas of the picture you wanted to activate. The camera feels really good and sturdy and made out of metal. Comes with the hardware to install it... (No micro SD card, you must supply one.) The customer service is amazing. I had a querie and they responded right away. Very happy with this company and this product.

I like this camera so much that I bought 7 of them.. Home security cameras that are independent of one another that can be accessed anywhere via WIFI is a plus for me.. I have a Samsung Galaxy 8 and the app works flawless with it. I spend lots of time away from home and it's great to be able to keep tabs on my property inside and out. Well done to the company.. And thanks to Amazon for a quick and speedy delivery... I highly recommend this inexpensive camera for anyone who wants to have some home security in this not so secure world we are living in today..

Product Update - August 12, 2020
Since I initially posted this review I have purchased 12 of these cameras.. One didn't work so returned it and one other had a weird blurry spot on the picture. Another was missing a set screw on the mount. Customer Service was very good in that they refunded the total cost of the cameras in question right away. Overall these camera's are functioning very well.. Every once in awhile the WIFI signal from the router gets obstructed for whatever reason, maybe through interference from smart meters or other signals, I don't know., and a camera will be "connecting". After awhile all is well and it will connect.. It is very important to test the location by WIFI before installing these cameras to be sure of a good WIFI signal. I find that it's a good idea to reboot the router every day., and I have it set on a timer to do just that at 3 AM.. Routers are computers and reboots usually solve many connection issues.. I am very pleased with these cameras and the Customer Service from the Company..
Product Update: June 08, 2021
As of today, I have purchased, setup and installed 25 of these cameras. I use the same installation procedure as I have outlined above.. I have had very few issues with them and when issues did arise the company has been quick to help me out. I have tried other WIFI outside security cameras, mainly because of the cost, and I was not happy with any of them... They just didn't have the nicest night time image, or motion detection capabilities as these Chorteau cameras do. So, I am really happy with these cameras and the company's aftermarket service, should I have any issues.... I will not buy anything else.. You get what you pay for...
