However, some reviewers complained that the picture quality is grainy, requires improvement on fps and resolution and has access to lesser range. Also, another major concern is that this device does not perform well in low light areas and the batteries used in this device are not easily available.
Overall, the NetGear VueZone System is an incredibly simple and convenient way to check on family, pets, kids, workers etc., and secure home. VueZone is live remote video right on smartphone, tablet or computer, providing complete peace of mind even on the go.
