Thanks. Hate to say something that will not require a subscription.

For setups without a subscription, see the camera FAQ.

drop cam doesn’t require a subscription. I turn the recording on when I know I will be away. The rest of the time I just stream or capture stills. I’m happy with it, but I have the original version. I don’t like that light changes set off the motion sensor and I don’t like the noise it makes when it switches from night vision to regular. Since our TV is in frame, it happens a lot if the lights are off.

I am interested in arlo. Which does’t require a subscription for a few days recording.

I am going to reiterate (from Twitter) an endorsement for Scout Alarm.

Was that a subtle hint?
