What Camect Users Say
Camect is a new product and it’s still difficult to find reviews of it on traditional review sites. However, some of our users have posted completely unsolicited comments about their Camect experience in public forums. Here are a few excerpts of those comments. Click on any quote for the full context.
I have tried several different "person" detect aware systems, RING, WYSE (when they still had XNOR), sighthound, KASA and one other I can't remember now. All of them generated way too many false positives which generally lead to user fatigue and you either ignore alerts or turn them off. They all would trigger on windblown shrubbery or stark changes in lighting caused by clouds, shadows or lights turning on. Camect has none of these false alarms.

Best camera choices, ONVIF, RTSP, IOT (it's really nice having the Nest appear with the other cams)
Best AI, able to differentiate between a squirrel, cat, and dog; Also apparently can differentiate between many other categories and alert/not alert based on object type.
Best AI notifications
Set up was pretty straight forward. Found all of the cameras, except the Ubiquity which streams on a non-standard port. It found all of the Dahuas which were are on a sequestered vlan, different than the Camect vlan.
Camect support is really responsive to solving issues
Most trainable AI

I'm so far on the "upside surprise" end it feels almost irrational. Within 48-hours I had pulled the previous box that was acting as my FTP Video collector and pushed the Camect on the shelf to its permanent location. I have a bag full of $25 microSD cards, some of which will likely be reimaged to look at https://www.home-assistant.io/ opportunities (and my Lutron RadioRa2). I have no idea this little crowdfunded project would be run in such an excellent and exciting fashion.
