Summary: I love AXIS cameras for their image quality and rich feature set. Also, unlike cheaper cameras with similar features, AXIS cameras have enough "horse power" to actually do what they promise. The only reason I gave it 4 starts instead of 5 is that I find the WiFi antenna could be more powerful. I am having issues getting reliable connectivity if they are a bit far from the base station.
Summary: I've owned this product for about 3 months now and although it does the job most of the time, it's quite a disappointment considering how it really should work. My M-1031W installed fine but it keeps dropping the network (regardless of LAN or WiFi) about once a week. Most of the time it automatically reconnects after a few time-outs but every now and then I have to unplug it and reboot it to re-establish the connection (!
Summary: m1011w is camera bought didn't have need for sound or lighting,great little camera easy to set up I use Visec program to monitor several cameras all at once,one at a time with web browser not very practical,fast delivery good camera for the price
Summary: I've had the camera for a couple of days now. Thanks to google search I got the email event notifications working. If you go with straight gmail or hotmail as an email service, you will be spending days getting this to work without some modification. In the Event configuration, you can specify a gmail address (for example), however you will need to configure your SMTP netork to use another provider. I use gmx.com because it is more compatable with axis.
Summary: This camera is absolutely amazing assuming you take the time to learn about it. The amount of flexibility and functionality simply can not be beaten for its price. Now I have only used this with the AXIS software for a little bit, so I'll start by reviewing that first: The software (AXIS Camera Management) has very helpful documentation and seems to provide a wide variety of functionality.
Summary: This was my second purchase of an Axis camera. The 1031W is outstanding, easy to set-up, and offering quite good image quality. Combined with a simple third-party app, I can now easily access both cameras from my iPhone or iPad. I'm a happy camper. I don't know whether the built-in speaker and microphone, accessible remotely, are worth the premium price over the silent model.
Summary: My main complaint about the Axis cameras (I own 2 of them), is that their event detection software is extremely difficult to adjust to a level where events can be detected reliably without lots of false alarms.
Summary: Comments about Axis Communications M1031-W Network Camera: I use this camera indoors for security while away. It works well for this especially with the PIR motion detect, very accurate. The 2 way audio works very well. Where this camera falls short is that image is grainy and it doesn't do all that well with minimal lighting. I had issues with the firmware, but their support is excellent and they were able to provide me new firmware to fix the issues.
