Not user friendly
Linked with home wifi able to view the live streaming but when connected to other data or using own 3G totally hopeless.. Keep on buffering for ages and stating "live Streaming is unavailable".. I can't view the video at all when I'm out of the house and seems very troublesome with iPhone.. App always crashed... Not worth for my money and it's kinda expensive for small device.. For Philips electrical device the quality is very poor and now to me is a NO NO

Limited value as a security device
As a security device this camera is quite limited. After set up it can send videos triggered by motion and/or noise to your DropBox account. However these videos are only approximately 15 seconds long; the longest I have seen was 20 seconds when motion was continuing past that time. The video recording strangely starts before the triggering motion happens, wasting usually about 50% of the recording time. If there is continuous motion for longer than the time of the original recording a new video is usually not immediately started. I have seen up to a 1 minute delay before the next video starts thus missing that much of the action. If the action triggering the recording lasts say approximately 30-60 seconds you may only get the first 10 seconds of the event recorded to your DropBox. One can only hope that all this is down to the software of the controlling App and that Phillips will take note and improve things.
Video quality is not very good even on a fast wi-fi connection and I guess might not always give adequate facial recognition if say a crime has been committed.
May be more useful if one just wants to remotely stream a short video to check up on what kids or perhaps sick or elderly person is doing when you are out of the room or home.
It is relatively simple to set up but the instruction leaflet is very basic and gives little help in making adjustments in the App. Phillips email support is abysmal if you run into technical problems, from my experience.
Casing and bracket are however very well designed.

Don't buy it
Totally unreliable, slow and other than nice design nothing going for it. Tarmishes my opinion of Philips and any of their products now as a result. Can't see how this is being sold.
