I'm new here and thought I'd post some thoughts after spending a few hours last night messing with Sighthound.

When I first set it up I was very pleasantly surprised to see how easy it was to add the camera. I currently only have a single cheap(£40) Ebay camera which I expected to cause problems but no, it found the camera and had footage from it in about 30 seconds. The only problem is that it seemed to be unhappy about the fps dropping in night mode, is there a way to make the software less concerned with this?

In the time messing with the system it seemed to generate a lot of two minute clips rather than a longer one that shows all the movement, but this may be to do with the region I set up.

I'm not sure if there is a feature to set up a pre-record to movement, I may have just missed it. I'm also currently getting 'people alert' emails every five minutes due to the top of a small bush so will be fiddling with the areas later.

I will do some more fiddling over the weekend but so far very impressed.
