Nice. I’ve been using the Yi outdoor cameras. I like the motion tracking feature. Might have to get this (dome camera) one too.

I don't like the way that the camera clicks repeatedly when it goes from night vision to day vision early in the morning as mine is pointing out of my bedroom window and it can sometimes wake me up. Other than that, it's spotty dog.
