I agree that not everyone can buy a new equipment. The good news, I just got another email from Netgear saying that because of the overwhelming feedback (most likely they got a lot of backlash on shutting down the service and discontinuing the devices), they have extended the service. Here is a copy of the email:
"Dear valued VueZone customer,
On July 1, 2016, NETGEAR announced the planned discontinuation of services for the VueZone video monitoring product line, which was scheduled to begin as of January 1, 2018.
Since the announcement, we have received overwhelming feedback from our VueZone customers expressing a desire for continued services and support for the VueZone camera system. We have heard your passionate response and have decided to extend service for the VueZone product line. Although NETGEAR no longer manufactures or sells VueZone hardware, NETGEAR will continue to support existing VueZone customers beyond January 1, 2018.
We truly appreciate the loyalty of our customers and we will continue our commitment of delivering the highest quality and most innovative solutions for consumers and businesses. Thank you for choosing us.
The NETGEAR VueZone Team
July 19, 2016"
