What I don’t like about the Nexgadget WiFi IP Camera

  • The Nexgadget WiFi IP Camera isn’t water resistant or weatherproof. It is therefore limited to indoor use only. Setting it outside would only destroy its circuitry and cause it to malfunction.
  • It can’t quite work without the presence of a steady internet connection. In addition, the security camera has to be within the WiFi range. Otherwise, it will keep on providing inconsistent images and lagging frequently.
  • Although the setup is easy, it may require one to have some networking knowledge. This comes in handy when configuring the camera to the wireless network. However, the Nexgadget support team are always available to offer a helping hand.
  • The power cord is a bit short (4 feet in length) compared to other security cameras. This limits the range within which you can place the camera.

    Does not sent any photos with the alerts (email or texts.) No adjustment or setting for audio detection and alerts. Will only stream to one phone at a time–the other viewer has to log out.

    You get the alert, but it has no picture attached. By the time you look at your phone, whatever triggered the alert is long gone. Even at the lowest sensitivity and pointed at the door, alerts will being sent every hour, filling up your mailbox. I don’t know if audio was setting it off, there was no separate adjustment for audio.

    I like the camera, but can’t get the software to send out alerts w/photos, and can’t get it to work w/3rd party software. Without the images being captured, it doesn’t really meet my needs.

      Hi Kevan, thank you for your comment.

      You will find that the features you have mentioned are common in many of the cameras in the budget price range. For example, alerts without an image. When received, it will be up to you to view the live feed and make a call whether you need to alert the police, or return home. I still believe any notification is better than no notification at all. Effectively, the same result could occur with an alarm system. By the time the police arrive, whatever or whomever triggered the alarm are long gone. Deterrence is also important in both cases.

      In regards to alerts being sent every hour, my suggestion would be that pointing it directly at the front door may not be the best use for it, or it seems to be picking up a lot of background noise from outside. If possible, try moving it further away from the door, but still with the door in sight.

      If you are looking for a security camera to meet all of your needs, I’m more than happy to point you in the right direction, just get back in touch.
