Summary: I have been using this camera for 3 years and it is still going strong. I have to buy a new battery as the original one stopped taking a charge after 1 year. The IR night vision only work well close up. You can supplement the IR with additional IR lights that will get you another 5 feet away from the camera. Picture quality is good. The camera has a jack for an external microphone. I like and would recommend it to anyone.
