I actually prefer the smaller screen, if I didn't opt to get the pleb version of the 5S back then, it would probably still be my main phone. Now we use it as a spare with the free line from Tmobile.


iWatch is the tits. Hopefully upgrade mine to the series 3 soon, still rocking Series 1 and it's been a tough nugget. But I don't think I would get the one with cellular.
lol at pron comment.

yeah i like watches , interchangeable background would be nice.


For those with Nest cameras, how do you like them? Pros, cons? Hows the night vision/low light. Its free after the original purchase right? just need to use wifi?

Im not a techy, too much to read online. looking for tldr thanks

Getting really tired of the "did i close the damn garage" feeling.

I can store 256 + the factory 64 GB on my Note 8 at any time. The Note 8 actually has a pretty small form factory given how large the screen is.

Not sure what the oldest has. I think Iphone 6?

If you're going to use it for just the garage, get any Wifi IP camera off Amazon and you should be fine. Check out Foscam and Armrest (they're same company, but Armrest is their Audi). They recently discovered a big flaw in a lot of IP Cameras, I believe by now, most major brands have been patched. Foscam offers cheap online storage, or some you can use a memory card (stay away from cheap ones, otherwise they constantly fail).

Nest is going to cost you per month, depending on what package is currently available and which you select. But their software is really good and setup is a breeze. Quality is pretty good as well. Nest will record audio and video.

We have a couple Arlo cameras in addition to a wired setup. 100% battery. Nice phone app and free online storage included for 1 weeks backup. I would recommend them.

IIRC Arlo's are triggered by events, so it can conserve battery. Can you check them on demand to get a live view? Being in a garage, can't see batteries lasting long with constant activity and cold temps in the winter.

We have the first version at the GFs house. They take standard CR123 batteries. They are outside and lasted quite some time last winter. I would guess roughly 3 months.

I have the 720P versions at home (they now have 1080 version out). They are activated by motion, but you can do live view too. I have it set to record only when there is motion at my house, so most clips are 10 seconds or less. To date, I have only charged them once since getting them in August. They get a lot of clips. Last week the neighbor had some drainage put in and it recorded 250 clips in one day. I originally got them cause of some kids throwing eggs. I had them set up across the street and on my mail box. It caught every single car, at night hours...some days over 100 clips. For battery camera, I would say the batteries last a very long time.

You can also plug them in if inside (or outside) and never worry about battery going dead if you want.

Here's a clip of me yesterday: https://arlo.netgear.com/hmsweb/user...E5C1EB8_201711

The 1080 would be a lot clearer I imagine. But for being 100% battery powered, I think they are fantastic. You can put them anywhere and move them around if you want. The app is really easy to use and checking history is easy too. You can share the links with people, download the videos, etc. I have my wired cameras for "real detail" and catching peoples license plates. These are great to keep an eye on the house without having to log into a slow dvr and search hours of video just to see what time a package was dropped at the door for instance.

Lot of good options out there.
