    My ALC exposure started with the Wi-Fi doorbell and I liked it so much that I decided to expand my system. The outdoor pan and tilt camera was the second piece that I added to my account and I love the way it works. This review will assume that you have had basic exposure to surveillance systems and talk about the ALC’s installation and performance.

    Camera power: This is probably the most difficult thing to figure out. You want the power to come from a location where people can’t tamper with it. The box comes with the transformer and one 6’ extension. The manufacturer does not recommend more than two 6’ extensions or about 18’ in length which gives you a lot of flexibility.

    Camera placement: I started the expansion with one outdoor PTZ camera so it was important for me to determine the best location. To do this, I linked the camera to my system and mounted it to a 8’ long 1”x3” board so that I could see the images on my mobile device as I moved it around to test various placements. Doing this in both daylight and at night let me learn a few great things about the camera.

    The streaming quality can be set to low or high resolution. To have the images back-up to the cloud (google drive, etc.) you need to have a class 10 micro SD card installed (not included). You can set the number of “reserve events” to 30, 40 or 50 files. All of the files will remain on the card until you run out of space and then the oldest files will be overwritten. Files downloaded from the cloud or memory card are clearer than the live streamed videos and the audio is surprisingly clear. I didn’t even know it had a microphone until I watched my first video.

    Night vision is super bright and has 5 levels of low light enhancement. That brightness is very useful when pointing across a dark yard. However, when the camera points at the wall it’s mounted to, the infrared light is too bright and the reflection effects the camera’s exposure.

    Near endless zooming allows you to fill the screen with a tiny object 100’s of feet away. The resolution does not improve but you can zoom a lot.

    Mounting the Camera:
    I mounted the camera on vinyl siding which resulted in a minor issue. The slope of the siding takes the camera out of plumb and when I pan, the image follows a slight arc instead of a horizontal twist. I plan on remounting the camera with a backing plate so that the fixture is plumb. It would have been nice if the mount included a ball joint so that you could make this adjustment during installation without needing a vertical surface.

    SightHD software:
    The software is user friendly enough. I went through a learning curve when I installed the ALC doorbell but adding an additional camera was fairly easy. I had to restart the app on my mobile device a few times during the set-up but once I got full access (including google drive), the software has functioned properly. It is so convenient to have access to the cameras from the app.

    The software has a lot of settings you can customize. I like being able to pan and tilt by swiping at the screen and the ability to set three buttons to preprogrammed positions. Since installation, I’ve used the mobile application from my work and my couch, many times. It takes about 5-10 seconds to connect to the cameras from my mobile device. Once connected, there is a 1-2 second delay between commands and action. I’ve changed the motion detection sensitivity settings and screen blocking, to concentrate the notifications on activities that interest me.

    Currently the documentation that comes with the camera is minimalistic, but a moderately able person should be able to figure out how to install and operate this camera.

    I’m very happy with my ALC products and am excited that they offer a number of solutions to meet multiple needs.
