New WIFI Battery Camera

I just go the new camera. Couple of questions

Would it perform better on 2.4 or 5 g?
If it detects motion and supposedly records up to 1 minutes, where do you view that recording?
Are other experiencing a lag when you go to live view? Mine is so slow to load, I’d find it not useful if I got an alert while away that motion was detected. By the time it would load, the thing that caused the motion alert would be long gone.

Thank you

5Ghz will give you faster speeds which is good for video, but reduced range vs 2Ghz. 

You can use 5Ghz extenders or run a mesh Wifi system to account for this. 


The more bandwidth you can provide, the better. And your equipment can  be a bottleneck. 

I run a TP Link AC3200 router, older Motorola modem which I will upgrade soon. 


I also plan to update to the TP Link Deco 5 or 9 mesh system.
