I have tried several home security systems now and these are not the full install jobs but ones that are simple to use and simple to install with minimal tech knowledge or building knowledge either and this does not mean they don’t do the job they are set out to do because of the above as I still use one today in-house and the smartfrog system is no different either when it comes to simplicity and installation. Versitility here is one thing that gets my attention here as they can be placed anyhwhere in the home once you have a plug nearby and they can be either fixed permenantly of left sat in one spot or moved around the house at any given time.

The system of course comes with an app and you can also use a desktop interface to get some features like stored clips but both work well together when it comes to simplicity. Set up is simple and less than 5 minutes depending on wi-fi and if your router is compatible as my old one was not but any of todays current ones are fine.

Within the app you can go through sensitivity settings as seen in the app walk through below and you could not ask for more. Quality is great considering and again levels can be set and the same applies to motion detection and so on. You can also talk to the camera… Yes you can and in fairness many  on the market can too as there is a little speaker on the rear so anyone in the vicinity can hear you should you wish to say something to someone in-house like a babysitter for example or if you have a pet being bold. You also can use your webcam on the desktop of turn your old phone into a cam too by adding them it’s so simple and a great way to use old devices just sat there..  You can get additional storage by signing up to a subscription that can be cancelled at any time its worth it if you have this and on a budget to keep some peace of mind.
