Trying this out right now. Never could stomach the price of Nest Cam or even the Wemo Cam to just see what my cat's up to when I'm gone. Tomorrow my questions will be answered. Edit: Playing with it some more, really like that it already has the ability to push voice, now I can tell the cat to get off the counter.

Love the idea, extremely concerned about the security of my data on Perch's systems. Anyone's systems really, but especially for a home monitoring system.

Cool idea for recycling old phones. What are the benefits vs risks users can expect compared to competitors? (Dedicated cameras) I've never been an Android user myself so I can't try it out, any plans to release something for iOS devices?

I like the ability to see the capture in real-time. However, I don't seem to see a way to view recorded videos.
