What is Geeni App?
Have you ever imagined what it'd be like to have one control for all the smart devices within your home? No?
That's what the GEENI App is about. It literally controls your smart home devices with the different commands you give to the home via the app. Now even though it controls smart devices already installed at your house, there's a catch. The devices must be compatible with the app. They must be created by the creators of the app.
These days more than ever, we want to make sure our homes are well equipped and covered to protect from intruders. Smart homes are being used now than ever before and for good reason. Furthermore, a smart home owner would love the idea of controlling the smart devices in his smart home which is where the idea of the Geeni App comes up.
Some of the admirable features of the Geeni App include the following:
- You get easy control of smart home devices using the app.
- You have the option to schedule when devices go off or on for security purposes.
- There is an account sharing feature which allows you to decide how many of your friends and families can have access to your home through an account.
- You can easily log on or off anywhere in the world.
The usability of this app is not complex to understand. It is fairly straight forward. The app has a portion for each smart home device from which they can easily be controlled and which is also very convenient.
Additionally, you can schedule when these devices e.g. your TV, Living room light, Video camera, Entryway light and so on, can be switched on and off,. So just imagine it; it can be switched with a simple click on a specific button on your phone screen within the app.
The Advantages of using Geeni:
- It is easy to set up.
- It is not difficult to understand or use.
- Its images are very clear even at night time.
- It is a free app.
- It is super convenient as you do not need to move to switch off appliances around your house.
Disadvantages of the Geeni App
- There are too few automation options.
- Sometimes it has a connectivity problem depending on the Wi-Fi data available to it.
- You can't view all the cameras at once.
- Battery usage can be intense.

Top Pcmac Reviews
I thought I wrote a review already
By Em Dooey (Pcmac user)
But I’ll write another! I’ve had this little camera for over a year now, set it up in the office to see what my cat got up to when I wasn’t there and now have it in the living room pointed at my dog’s crate where he stays when we go somewhere. After the initial setup, it’s been a great little camera. I downloaded the wrong app at first, as I suspected a lot of people did who have this one star because it didn’t work, but called customer service and got the help I needed to get it straight. Btw, app is Geeni, NOT Merkury. Also, I recall I had to make sure the camera was synced to the 2.4 wifi and not the stronger 5 (we have both, and at first I automatically put it on the 5, apologies that I don’t recall the actual name but every time I sign into my account to get my internet connection I see both so I remember the numbers, I hope if anyone reads this they know what I mean) so that was also something I had to straighten out. Once done everything’s been fine, but recently I switched phones and have a new number, and I can’t see any place to change that, so I contacted customer service in-app and am waiting for a response. If I can’t change it I’ll have to create another account, I guess. Minor annoyance but doable since it doesn’t involve set up of the product haha.
I hope this helps someone out there. It’s a good product, give it a chance!
Surprisingly resilient and simple!

My home network contains so many devices that no router made can allow them all to connect at once. I have to have 3 routers using double NAT on each to keep everything online. Many of the cheaper IoT devices have to be regularly unplugged and plugged back in to maintain functionality/connectivity. The Geeni system, for being one of the cheaper lines, somehow is one of the most reliable of all the different manufacturers and brands that I have interlinked. Stays connected better even than the Belkin and iHome products.
[Update: Somehow just realized I was writing a review for the app not the camera...I have 2 White scale bulbs, 2 smart outlets, and one of their cameras. Also, I have a different manufacturer of smart camera in every room, including 2 in the hallway (one at each end) and 2 outside) - explicitly TO test them against and with each other and demo differences and compatibilities to potential smarthome builders. Review applies to all 5 devices that use this app as well as the app itself. ]
Technology at its finest

So first off I will start by saying I myself have not had any issues with this app and it’s ability to connect to my Wi-Fi or any issues with my Wi-Fi to connect the app to any of the Merkury LED bulbs, WiFi plug-ins or cameras that I own. To be honest with you it’s great knowing the fact that I can turn any of my lights on or off in any room at any given time with the push of a button on app screen is just amazing and then add the fact that you can change the color and brightness of these bulbs on screen sliders to adjust the brightness as well as the on screen color wheel to set the color of your choice. Also I love the fact that you can set a schedule so you can program a schedule for your lights to turn on and off while you’re at home or while you’re away this is great if you’re away from the house and you want to program your porch lights or garage lights to come on and off at certain time intervals. It’s been a game changer as well as innovative and fun for our family. The only issue I had and this has nothing to do with the app or the product is if someone manually turns the light off by the switch itself while the device is on and been turned on through the app this puts the light into off-line mode and you have no control over it until you that switch is turned back on.
For the price, no major complaints.

Picked up the indoor security camera from a BIG BOX store. Setting up I hit a snag. I have both 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz networks in my home. My particular camera is designed to operate on using the 2.4 GHz network of only. Went thru the setup many times with many devices and it would not work at all. Double checking every time that I was connecting to the 2.4Ghz network. I could get ally the way thru to a solid blue light, but the app would give an error msg that it can’t connect. Just about to give up and return the camera I had an “Ah Ha” moment. My two networks (2.4 GHz and 5.9 GHz) have different SSID’s. To simply things around the house I gave the two different networks the same password. When setting up the camera I would select the 2.4 GHz network and type in the password which is the same for both SSID’s (network names). Would not connect at all on the app, but the camera would go from flashing red, to flashing blue, then solid lit blue as if connected. So I logged into my router and changed the 5.0 GHz password by adding an extra character to the end. Two separate passwords fixed the connection problem.
* * * TLDR, will not work on 2.4 GHz network if the password is the same as a 5.0 GHz network.
