Great Unit and Features
I have had this unit for a week now and love it. It is very easy to setup and maintain. I have already added so much more to this basic starter kit. It does require an iPhone or Android to set it up which is no big issue. I had mine setup and on my network in less than ten minutes. I can monitor everything away from home. I do understand about using the unit away from home, but you do not need a wifi connection to view it. You need anything higher than 3G. I control mine on a 4G or 4G LTE and have no issues. So if you are looking to make your home automated I would start with this unit. They have so many additional add-ons and they are unlimited. I am doing the garage controller next. I hope this helps someone else who is looking to do this to their house.

Great for Monitoring Your House
Great kit for monitoring if people are in your house, adjusting your temperature and turning on lights before you get home, and making sure your house is safe. IP camera doesn't hook up to system as you would expect, it requires its own program. Adding more modules can make this a great home monitoring system, a great safety system or just monitoring your kids at night.

Way of the Future
This is a cool product, it definitely is a step in the future and is very cool to have if you can get it to work. I bought it for my basement so I can turn the lights out when we get a movie going. But I did not have the correct wiring (house built in the 60s, wiring was too old) and it could not work unless I re-wired my lights, ($2500 venture) and the only other place in my home that it would work would be a hallway and my dining room. So I ended up giving it ot my brother to put in his room as he is a techy. He had the correct wiring, it was hard to squeeze it into the small space as well but we managed...BARELY! Once in it is a pain to get the app to work, but once working it works great and I was even able to turn my brother's light on and off from Florida and he was back in Ontario Canada, so you truly can turn your lights off from anywhere in the world as long as you have wi-fi or data connection.
