I have two of the Scout guard cameras. I have one that I have not had any problems with and I am very pleased with it. The other one is a bit older version of the same camera. I had it out for about six months and the IR quit working and I was getting any night photos. I took it apart and it appeared that the lens filter was stuck. I unstuck the lens filter and now seems to be working properly. The picture quality on both cameras is really decent. The only real complaint on the camera that I have is that the temp shows in Celsius instead of Fahrenheit. The other complaint I have is they're customer service has been less than stellar. I figured for the price. I've gotten my monies worth.
Life is about the choices YOU make...Good or Bad!
