I thought that since it was so cheap that the quality of the video and the audio would not be so good.  So, I attached it to my ceiling above my front door and turned on the motion sensor, left it there all day just to see how it would be.  After 12 hours of being there, I took the camera aka
smoke alarm down and removed the Micro SD card and put it into my computer.  It impressed me, I could not believe it.  I could hear the audio really well from at least 25 feet away and the video was great also.  Each time someone moved in front of the sensor it would run for at least a minute after there was no movement.  The only down fall for this smoke detector is that it is not a live feed, you have to shut it off and playback on your computer.  There are other smoke detectors that are top of the line with live video feed though an IP address, but if you are on a budget then this one is for you. I think this should be on your list of things to get.
