Smart Home Compatibility
We use it for the dogs. I love it. Can see and hear crystal. I just bought one for the living room so I can monitor her in the swing while I take the dogs out to pee and burn off some energy. (& maybe so I can peak on her while I am at work.) I wouldn't use it as my primary overnight monitor because you can't close the app or the 24/7 monitoring stops.... you would only get a notification of movement. We have a separate system for overnight monitoring.
