So far I have found two uses for my FLARE - paperweight and doorstop.
It has a lot of promise, but it fails to deliver.
Easy to set up? No; I encountered problems with the setup process that rendered it unusable. I asked BuddyGuard how to reset it so that it could be reconfigured. I was told that it's not possible. Now when I turn it on, it automatically goes into alarm mode with no means of stopping it other than turning it off.
Intelligent? No; e.g., facial recognition failed miserably.
Frankly, it doesn't deserve one star.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
