I picked one up this weekend too. But I wanted it in white so I went through YooSee. Picked up the chime too but hope to god I dont have to use it. Hoping there's a way to hack it into working with my existing chime. Also ordered a Ubiquiti passive POE adapter off Amazon.
Yep... ordering from Yousee was probably the only way to go because during all my eBay research I never saw any of the ebay sellers offering a color choice, all only advertised black. Since we both ordered over the weekend, and since both shipments will be coming from Shenzhen it will be interesting to see if the additional fees Yousee charges for postage and shipping results in you getting yours faster. I certainly hope so! I debated on buying from Yousee wondering if I would get my shipment faster than from an eBay seller offering free shipping. In an unscientific effort to see if I was actually paying for faster service... I started a "Guest Checkout" order with Yousee. During checkout, on the shipping method page I was offered two choices:
Trackable Air Mail 10-20 days for $16.00
DHL Shipping 4-10 days) for $23.00
Unfortunately Hongkong Posts (the mail service for Honk Kong and surrounding providences including Shenzhen) offers tracking numbers on all Air shipment out of China. Based on the dummy order I placed via Yousee I can't determine which Hongkong Post mail service I'd get for the $16 they charge. Technically Ebay sellers in China don't have to provide buyers with a tracking number but I've always got one with every China purchase I've made. Hongkong Post offers seven different 'air handling" services for the mailing of parcels to countries outside China. Each service offers a different delivery time frame at different price points. The faster the service the more it costs.
Speedpost Air (2-5 days)
e-Express Air (7-14 days)
iMail Air (4-24 days)
Registered Packet Air (4-24 days)
Parcel Air (6-28 days)
Ordinary Packet Air (4-24 days)
Ordinary Packet Surface Mail (2 -110 days)
Bulk Air (4-24 days)
The reason for the overlap in the delivery schedules is because each category has its own maximum weight limit ranging from anywhere from up to 2kg and from 2kg to 30kg. Anyway... even though my eBay seller said I should get in October (approx 28 day delivery window which would indicate it is probably being sent as a Parcel)... per the eBay order confirmation page" it says my Estimated delivery is: "Mon, Oct 28 - Mon, Dec 09". I cant answer why eBays delivery window estimate is so large, I can only "assume" eBay, to be on the safe side safe, and not knowing the final destination of where the item may be shipped to, defaults to Hongkong Post - Ordinary Packet Surface Mail ( 2-110 days) for shipments out of China.
NET: Am I over thinking this? No doubt! Anyway... (ideally) I would really like to think you (and other who purchased directly from Yousee) will get their shipment within 14 days of the order date, as opposed to buyers like me who opt to go with free shipments via eBay and hope they get their shipment before the item is obsolete
