This has been a life saver as I can see and hear what the kids are doing in the livingroom while I'm at work. They often fight over the TV or Xbox now I can call home and diffuse the fight before it gets out of hand. I can even see when the light is off!! I can also pan the camera left or right! I am soooo glad that I made this purchase as it has given me peace of mind while the kids 14 & 10 are home alone! I recommend this highly!!
