I watched some online videos from the Costco & Lorex web pages before installing the LNC 216's. It was easy to initially set up using my android and wifi network. I later used the disc to add the view and playback programs to my laptop, and after this it kept giving me the same command that I had to uninstall the current program to install the updated one so I wasted a lot of time with all of that, but I was rather distracted while doing this, so maybe it was me. Meets my needs so far. I purchased to keep an eye on my older dog and my young pup, and to be able to talk to them if they create mischief while i'm gone, and to keep an eye on the front of my house, and to see who's at my front door. I turned off the LED lights and with this setting change, don't have much of a problem with reflection in the glass even with having the camera close to the glass on my window sill, with better than expected night time vision for this (set for daytime). Can record to a SD card in the camera, your smartphone, your pc or tablet if you have the software loaded on it (I don't have a tablet) but haven't done extended recordings as yet, or figured out if can record to a cloud, and would like to, due to if someone breaks in, they are likely to take the camera and pc, and I don't have the recording capacity on my android--suggestions on recording to a cloud, dropbox, etc. that have worked?
