If you have a subscription to Cammy, simply open our mobile or desktop app to view your cameras from anywhere, anytime. If your cameras detect a person when you are not around, you will receive an alert on your phone. From there you will be able to take action, such as calling your local police.
Cammy stores motion detected footage on the cloud for 30 days so you will be able to access your events timeline to see if any footage can help identify and convict the intruder. You can also save the most important events as an MP4, which can assist in providing evidence if need be.

If the intruder is wearing a mask, the camera still records their actions as long as they stay within the camera's field of view. You may not be able to see their face, but you will have an understanding of the clothing and body type of the intruder. Some popular places to place your cameras include the entry points of your home such as the front door, back door, first floor windows and garage. It's also a good idea to point cameras at the thoroughfares of your home as you can potentially capture the identity of the intruder.
If the power cuts, the cameras will be offline. Please note that everything captured before the power cut will be uploaded to the cloud and accessible from your Cammy account. These cameras are internet and power dependent, they require both to record and send events to the cloud. As soon as the power is back, the cameras will be fully operational again.
If the WiFi cuts, the cameras will not be able to record footage, as they are unable to upload the footage to our cloud server. However, if you are at home and connected to the same router, you will still be able to live view.
The amount of cameras that you have depends on a few factors like the general size of your property and what you'll be using Cammy for. Some popular areas to place your cameras include entry points for intruders like the front door, back door, first floor windows and garage. You can also monitor thoroughfares to potentially capture the identity of an intruder. If you want to add more camera plans you can always do so at anytime.
No, you can share your cameras and home alarm with as many users as you wish. All they need is a Cammy account. Simply add users within the app and the alarm will only activate when everyone is out of the house.
