Hi, my name is Raissa, and I'm on the product management team at One cool way that I use my system is to keep an eye on my baby hedgehog, Kiwi, at home. So this is Kiwi, my baby hedgehog. I got her about a month ago, and she's two months old now. I love her to pieces, and I love being able to see what she's doing. My favorite thing about using my system for her is that I can check in for her during the day and see that she's safe and that she's eating, and she's sleeping. I also have video motion detection set up inside of her cage so that I can know when she's awake during the day and moving around, and I will get a notification on my phone. Another fun thing is that Kiwi is a nocturnal animal, so I can use the night vision feature on my camera to go back and see what she was doing at night. So, to set up video motion detection on Kiwi's cage, I just went to the video tab on the website. And then under camera settings, I clicked on video motion detection and from then on I could adjust the settings and even create custom schedules for when I'm alerted about Kiwi's activity.
