Our Rating: 4.3/5
This security camera is a pretty good all-around surveillance device. The quality of the recorded video is outstanding for a security device and the ability to communicate through it is a nice perk as well.
The software is not very user friendly and the documentation is hard to follow and contains many grammatical errors. Also, the motion sensor is erratic and doesn’t work so well.
Best Suited For
The VT-361 is a great way to keep in touch with your babysitter or nanny. It can also help you watch over your elderly loved ones.
Not So Good For
Security. There is a long 5 minute delay between what you see on the live feed and what’s happening in the house. Also, the motion sensor is too sensitive and tends to send out lots of false alarms.
If you’re looking for a low priced nanny cam, the VT-361 is hard to beat. However, if you’re looking for an indoor security camera there are better products out there.
