I just got my 2 kunas this weekend and decided to install them. The build quality is good, the overall package seems sturdy except maybe for the housing that surrounds the light.
The installation was not easy as my house has a stone facade (uneven) so that complicated the kuna installation a bit. A flat surface would be much better.
After doing the physcal light installation, I then proceeded with the software installation.
First, I used the Android app (version 1.1.1).
I must say that (for the moment) the Android app is not really ready. I had problems connecting to the kunas thru wi-fi although I have a very good signal (to be sure, I had installed a repeater in my garage). I managed to connect to one light, but was not able to add the second kuna. Then, both of my kunas went offline.
After retrying many times w/o success (I also submitted some tickets to support but they were not available during the weekend), I had the presence of mind to try my iPod. The iOS app is much better (version 1.1.6), and I was able to re-install both of my kunas easily. You can even confirm some events (did the motion sensor detect a real person at the front or not?).
So far, my Kunas have been working fine since then. The images & videos captured are really crisp (720p, and nice wide angle). You can talk to someone outside using the microphone and listen to his/her response. When there is wind, it’s a little more challenging, but the sound is OK overall. You have pre-recorded questions (such as ‘Can I help you?’) that you can play anytime if somebody shows up. You can also trigger an alarm sound (could be useful) in case of emergency. And, of course, you can turn on/off the light using the app.
The alerts also seem to be working OK, but there no way to customize them at the moment (ex. no scheduling except basic sleep/no sleep commands).
The only thing I’ve noticed is a small lag for live recordings (few annoying seconds). It could be issue with their app or with their servers (as all the recordings are done in the cloud).
As I have mostly Android phones & tablets, this could be a problem for me till Kuna corrects the issues with their app and upgrade it to be at par with iOS.
That’s all for the moment! In brief, it seems to be a good purchase for the moment. Time will tell, of course.
I’ll keep you posted after few weeks of operation.

P.S. As indicated in their campaign, they support bluetooth, but I’ll be able to test it only with hub V2. They are also supposed to release some APIs later (no release date for the moment).
