To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased the Zeus, Apollo, and Triton cameras in this series. I can say without a doubt that for me the Zeus has been by far the best compared to the other two. This thing is awesome. It reacts almost instantly to any movement in its area, tracks perfectly, and when set with the alarm on it goes off very quickly with sound, lights, and notification. It works equally well in light and darkness. By comparison, the Apollo camera tracks well but is a little more sluggish, and takes a very long time to decide to sound the alarm. The Triton outdoor camera is even less responsive and seems to often be pointing in random directions like it is following flying bugs or something. If I could get the Zeus style cameras with different mounting and placement options for indoor and outdoor I’d put them all over the place.
Update: removing two stars because I ordered a second Zeus camera and installed it in another room adjacent to the first. The second one is configured exactly like the first one, detects and tracks movement, but unlike the first one the second one is very unreliable about setting off the alarm. I have not been able yet to get any response from support as to why identical cameras with identical configurations under almost identical circumstances operate very differently. So I can't recommend this camera as highly now because you might not get the great results I got with my first unit since my second one has issues.
update 4/28/2021 Since i have all of the Zeus, Triton, and Apollo cameras fron this line installed for some time i can document with certainty that other than the inconsistent behavior of the alarm function, the behavior of greatest concern is that all of the cameras will fail to connect on the first and sometimes second try to connect from the app to get a live view. The app just times out on live connect with "received an error code from the camera(15).". This problem has been there since the cameras were installed, and there are zero issues with Wifi strength. Usually a second or third try will succeed. Since these cameras are marketed for security purposes, time to respond is a critical capability- a camera that will not respond to see what is going on is a pretty significant problem. i really like these cameras for the design and tracking but their tendency to get "lost in thought ". and fail to respond to motion or queries from the app continues to be disappointing. If not for those issues these would be fantastic. The error code 15 timeout thing is just a flaw that should have been fixed a year ago.
This camera is perfect if you don't want any messy wiring in your house. If you're like me and hate having to figure out how to hide wires - then this camera is perfect for you. All you have to do is screw it into your existing light socket and that's it! Installing it was very easy and it doesn't require any type of monitors to be able to view your footage. All you have to do is download the smartphone app, install the camera by QR code and you can instantly view live streams, take snapshots and more. I really like that I only need one camera to protect my home because this camera can turn 360-degrees! For the price and the features you're getting, I really recommend this camera.
The most ingenious solution ever. I live in NorCal, so the temperature isn’t extreme, so I actually use it as my porch light. I didn’t have to hire a handyman to drill holes on my house. I’ve shown it to my coworkers and they think it’s a great idea. I wish more folks would seriously take a look at the solution. I also have a Ring peephole door bell, but that doesn’t deter crime. However, because the camera follows you, a criminal would think twice before committing a crime. I think it is very effective. I would totally sell it if my company carried it. Amaryllo Rep, please give me a call to discuss business opportunities.
I’m impressed. I bought this camera because I have an elderly parent that lives alone with her cat. The crazy cat pretty much chews on any eletrical cord that it can get it's paws on. Screwed the camera to the recessive lighting fixture the my living room, problem solved.
Great product for the money. Tracking is good if you are walking in slow motion. It does not rotate straight down, so if you are standing under the camera it will not be able to see you( blind spot) otherwise it does identify faces at close range. It would have been better if there was two way audio.
