Best Small IP Camera Available!

stevefoobar "Steve", Amazon
8 July 2011
  • Summary: Although this camera is dated in terms of it supporting only 640 x 480 video, no audio, and no Wi-Fi, it is still one of the best small cameras available for what it does at any price. I have tried many of them. Most have very poor optics, poor firmware, or simply just don't work. This camera by Axis, a camera security company, NOT a general purpose computer electronics company (Logitech, Cisco), is committed to having the highest quality products available and they...

Not very long lived.

Keep Smilin' "J Hunmeier", Amazon
8 September 2009
  • Summary: Bought my 206 last year from a friend who had only used it for a few months. The camera was well cared for and was in original packaging. The camera lasted me less than a year before it started failing intermittently. Finally last week it crashed and won't come back up at all. It shows a green light until I plug it into the network whereupon the orange fail light starts flashing. It's not accessible over the network.

Great cam, but difficult to set up with a Mac

Just a guy, Amazon

  • Summary: Once you get this camera working, it's great. However, setting it up using a Mac is a nightmare! I had to upgrade my O/S to gain access to Bonjour to get it working.

Easy To Set Up

  • Summary: I use this as a security camera. It was easy to set up and it creates its own website on line so I don't even have to do that. The quality of the video is good.

Poor Support, Watch out

R. Oneill, Amazon
25 February 2008
  • Summary: I have purchased quite a few Axis products and have never had to use them for support. I recently went to upgrade the firmware and the firmware update bricked the camera. I went to Axis for support and they essentially were useless. Even though all indications were ok for the firmware upgrade the camera was no longer working (the camera worked 100% before).

I've had the 206 for YEARS

Robert C. Nimmich "Robert", Amazon
17 February 2008
  • Summary: I've had the Axis 206 for over three years now. It's good as new. It was new technology and much more expensive back then. I bought it to monitor the house for comfort when away. I used to have a D-Link camera, and OH what frustration (Piece of Debris.) The Axis has MUCH higher quality, reliability, ease of use, and a "finished" user interface. Simple, clean, full featured, and it works! All the time!

serverless webcam

Ottokrat, Amazon
16 August 2007
  • Summary: This camera has good detail for just 640x480. It hooks up to ethernet and contains a full webserver in just that tiny box, and so I don't need to leave any server or laptop running. I use it at my vacation home so I can see the property over the web when I'm not there.

10 March 2006
  • Summary: I PURCHASED THIS CAMERA FOR SECURITY INSIDE MY RESIDENCE. THE CAMERA WAS EASY TO INSTALL WITH THE INCLUDED SOFTWARE AND AXIS SUPPORT. I AM NOW ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CAMERA FROM ANYWHERE THAT I HAVE ACCESS TO A COMPUTER AND CHECK ON THE STATUS OF MY HOME. THE QUALITY OF COLOR IMAGE AT THIS PRICE RANGE WAS IMPRESSIVE, AND I AM ABLE TO TAKE A SNAP SHOT OF ANY ACTIVITY THAT I MIGHT OBSERVE, AND SAVE IT TO MY HARD DRIVE.
