Excerpt: I wanted a quick easy solution for watching my child while working in my office. This solved the problem at a cost of less than 40 dollars per room. With the addition of an ipad and the paid app at just 1 dollar I can keep an eye on her playing in the living room, den or yard with a simple switch.
Summary: Our requirements were very basic; we wanted to be able to look in on the house while at work. It would help us to ensure that the babysitter was actually sitting and that the pet sitters weren't robbing us blind.
Excerpt: If I wanted to run the camera attached to my router, it would have been a snap to do. However, I needed it to run wirelessly. I contacted Dlink and their support person had me do a firmware update and get their latest install wizard from their website. It took time, but I got it working.
Pros: Compact, Inexpensive, Security, Web Viewable
Summary: I am very happy with this camera and software. It was easy to set up in wireless mode after I got an N router to replace my G Linksys router. I bought a refurbished Linksys N from Amazon for $18... works great! Back to the camera. It is small and unobtrusive. The picture is pretty good.
Summary: This camera was amazingly easy to set up. No router ip address necessary. Had 2 up and running in 20 minutes. Also used iphone app and it works with sound. Quality of picture is not as good as some but for a business it works for me.
Summary: Great 1st camera. At $50, high value. Wireless rang is at most 20' so plan to buy a range extender or hardwire. Features are fun - sends email on motion, records to your hard disk, phone app to check your house and they all work. Took longer than planned to set up but easy if have technical savy.
Great camera for Wired Connection... Poor for WI-FI beyond one room

Summary: 4 Star product for direct Ethernet connection. 2 Star product for Wi-Fi connection beyond medium range of normal devices. I bought 2 of these. My original one was hooked up via Ethernet and it works great. Decent Video / Poor audio.
