I have a husband with early onset dementia. I have set up several cameras so that I can check in on him when I am away from the house. Thankfully this one works well and looks just like an alarm clock. I can turn it on for just a minute to make sure he is in bed and know that he is not wondering. It has a good Wi-Fi distance unlike some others I tried first. The only problem is that it switches from the time, to the date, to what used to be a temperature reading constatnly. There is no way to turn off this feature. So far it has not bothered him. It give me peace of mind and I don't disturb him when he's sleeping.
