Conclusion

Many users have expressed love for this app, especially after installing their light bulbs, because it allows them to turn on lights before entering a room. Setting everything up is simple and some users have reported being able to lower their power bill do to the greater energy efficiency that Geeni offers.

However, some users have reported difficulties in getting this app to work with Android. Although it works perfectly with the IPhone, some who attempted to install the app on Android discovered that the app won’t allow them to view anything other than motion capture notifications. A Geeni representative explained that since the video is encrypted it is not possible to see a SD card through the computer.

That being said, the camera works perfectly in 1080p. It will capture a screenshot of any movement it detects and will then record it. Since Geeni uses an SD slot it allows users to save up to twenty four hours’ worth of footage until they decide to remove it. With as little as eight gigs it is possible to record roughly four days before having to eliminate the data. This app has a lot of great features and its cameras can be used anywhere.
