Really good, really simple
Bought 3 Penguins to keep an eye on my elderly mother who lives alone. Really easy to set up once you resolve the 2.4 GHz / 5 GHz issue and the technical support is first class and really friendly. Picture is crystal clear and the monitoring aspect on any device works a treat. Only minor criticism is the power lead is a bit short particularly if you want to mount the camera high on a wall but otherwise wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Great system and fantastic customer service
I have used the Cammy system for many years. It is easy to use and just sits in the background until you need it or it detects unexpected movement. You can then review the footage from anywhere.
If you run into any problems the team at Cammy respond very quickly and speedily fix the problem

Cameras poorly made will fail within 16 months and no come back - locking pin fault on all 4
I have 16 CCTV cameras - 6 of which are Cammy, 2 of which are indoor - all 4 of the Nighthawk series have failed between 10-14 months - as soon as the camera is out of warranty Cammy do nothing - they are essentially a very poorly made product - all 4 nighthawks have failed at the locking pin so unless you want to record straight down at the ground don't buy them - my other cameras - Sony, Ucam Hikvision all 3-6 years plus with no issues
Genuinely would steer clear and even my indoor Penguins have started to default to 'cartoon vision' - I won't be buying this product again.
I have contacted tech support on multiple occasions eventually returning the camera. Therefore rendering the 1st camera as useless. The 2nd camera would send an alarm anytime I viewed the property externally. I suspect the 2nd camera was returned stock as now the 2nd Penguin camera won’t stay connected to wifi as well. This has been a totally disappointing and expensive venture and I’m again without monitoring.
Yes, the penguin camera now in the rubbish bin. Utterly disappointed. I certainly do not recommend the product, the smart phone app and the monthly fee is a complete rip off.
I love it
I really don't know why people are complaining about Cammy I found the camera's that I got off Cammy are working great and I find out the company are really great if I got any problems and I ring the company up I find them them great they bend over backwards there to help me set up the camera or any other problems that come with it and stay with me until it is working and for only just $29 a month you cannot complain about the that price is pretty reasonable
Cammy Security Cameras
I too was unfortunate enough to get involved with Cammy. No easy set up like the other reviewers said poor quality cameras and I could have bought a whole complete free app system with the money spent on the monthly fee. Now I have cameras that are worthless and good money forked out for nothing at all. Very disappointing just buy CCTVs yourself from Ebay and get an app that you can have on your phone and/or Monitor much more efficient and cost effective.
Rubbish camera, rubbish service
We took up the Cammy camera offer several years ago after their owner/spruker appeared on the Sunrise TV show with an offer of free monitoring "forever" when you buy one of their cameras. The idea was you buy the camera and monitor it yourself through the free smartphone app, no local storage required, it all goes over wifi back to Cammy HQ. Anyway, it appears "forever" is finite in the Cammy world as they recently reneged on their free monitoring without notice and are now demanding $50 per month. Well you can jamb it, your cameras are crap...and the only reason we stuck with it so long was the free cloud storage. If you want a low resolution camera that barely copes, software that's a decade out of date, constant network problems and rude customer service then go right ahead, otherwise keep shopping.
Very Bad Experience
Took up the offer and got 2 wifi security cameras - despite several attempts to set up including the assistance of cammy technical staff, the cameras did not work as designed. Would not remain attached to the home wi-fi, kept thinking my mobile was some 50-100 kms away when it was only two metres from a camera, 20 metres from the wi-fi router. Was promised a refund of the postage due to the cameras being faulty, has not happened instead they have stated they are sending me a $25 amazon gift card. No use to me, I don't want to purchase anything ...from amazon, happy to provide my card details which they already had when they had to refund the automatic two monthly payments of $30 - all in all, poor quality product and a failure to abide by their own communications. Bad decision to get involved with them.

Questions & Answers
Where do you buy these cameras from???
Is this suitable for a rental home? Also where do you buy this from? I can’t find prices or how to purchase anywhere
Hi Tegan. We have a rental property & mounted 1 camera onto the garage facing the driveway & side entrance. We screwed the camera onto a piece of galvanized iron then slid that over the guttering, using only 1 screw to bolt the iron onto the gutter. We didn't want to do any damage that we'd be made to pay for. I have the camera to protect my twin rescue Shepherds from being stolen. They were badly abused for the first 12 months of their life, used as bait" dogs, so I am adamant no-one will steal them or subject them to torture again. Cammy has been such great peace-of-mind! And the low monthly payment is totally worth it. Last year Cammy alerted me to a prowler who came down our drive after I had left very early for work...I called the police immediately and my dogs & house were untouched. Hope this helps :)
