Hey Roscoe why would you need real time on a security setup if it notifies you with each new picture? I am still trying to grasp the whole concept.
I'll give you a "for instance" on a security setup. I used a camera on our driveway out at the farm for security for about a year. It would hit on any vehicle coming up the driveway as it passed. The camera also had a pretty good view of the house as it was 30-40 yards from the house. Once a vehicle got to the house and parked, the range made detection by the camera more difficult on folks getting out of a vehicle. I was interested in knowing when anything came up the driveway but also having a more wide view of the house as a whole. Once a vehicle triggered the camera, with it in real time, I could send picture requests and get follow up pics whether the camera was being triggered or not. Make sense?
Now, if you had the camera just watching say the front door on your hunting cabin out in the woods at fairly close range, I don't think having real time would be of much benefit.
For the most part, I think "Real Time" is a neat feature to have access to, but for the most part its a little overblown as to how worthwhile it really is.
Most everybody I know who gets one of these cell cameras runs it in real time at first.... because lets face it, its dang cool to be able to talk to your camera instantly!
But quickly discover that they're really not doing anything with it and turn it off.
