This camera works exactly as described. It took a little trial and error to get the position just right, but it is a simple yet very effective tool to keep an eye on things when you are not around. There is no light that shines,so the camera is not seen unless it is being looked for. It did not come with a micro sd card, but that is a simple fix as I had an extra laying around. Overall, this is a really great product. I did notice that if you leave it plugged in for a while it tends to get a little warm.
