Default WiFi PIR floodlight with built in camera?

Anyone any experience with these?

I got one in my wholesalers today (CEF, I'm an electrician) and it is great on paper. Its an LED PIR floodlight. It has a Sd card. It's wifi. It records on detection of movement. It records sound. It has a speaker that plays from phone microphone. I can view/listen from my phone. I can activate it from my phone. I can play saved recordings on phone.

My problem is, on initial set-up it was giving false activations and I get a notification on my phone. Thought it was tree blowing in wind so I covered sensor completely but it was still setting off. So I unplugged it and brought it indoors to try. Powered up and set it up again but now it works fine..... but now no notifications when activated.

Is it going to be so temperamental that it's rendered useless? Am I going to find that it hasn't recorded when I need it the most?

Basically am I expecting too much from a 70 device and should I spend more, or are they all rubbish.
