Summary: Overall, this isn’t the best camera for keeping your house secure...I would say the best option this can be used for is a nanny cam. I am disappointed with the online interface of managing the camera and its advanced features. Looking at the original price of $200, I would say that is way too high for the features and functionality of this camera, but since it is on sale for $70 I would say that is a fair price.
Pros: Well, before I got this camera to review, I actually owned the previous generation (932-L). This product has great small packaging with not a lot of waste (so very eco-friendly). In the box you get the camera, a power cord, an ethernet cord and the instructions as well as some product info pamphlets. Setup was easy. Two options to get going: connect it to the router through the provided ethernet cord or use the WPS button on the back of the product. Then once the ligh...
Cons: The biggest let down on this device is doing the advanced features of the device. After initial setup, there is nothing to tell you how to setup the advanced features. The way I knew how to get to them was from using its older brother. First you must determine the IP address of the device from your network. Once you get that, you open an internet browser and type in the IP address to login to the internet interface. Once you get in with the username of admin and the p...
Great camera, does every thing that it says, a bear to set up.

Summary: Purchased the camera with great expectations, tried to set up with my limited knowledge of static ip, dynamic ip, upnp enabling, and dynamic dns workaround. It finally worked through a third party remotely working on my computer and calling the support staff twice, which I learned a lot from and where very helpful. Like I said great little camera with all the setting I wanted.
Summary: Really like the camera and it's feature set. Unfortunately, after upgrading the firmware to the latest version (1.23) it no longer recorded to SD Card and would not send email notifications. I have read that this is a firmware bug and have confirmed this by down-leveling the camera to version 1.22 which restored this functionality.
Summary: This camera works good but doesn't have a very wide view, something like 40-50 deg. So you may need a few for each room. Also you can record on the SD card, but it still has to go through the internet to do that. The program that they had for download to record to your computer doesn't work with Windows 8 very well. So I can't say much on that until they fix that problem.
Summary: Let me start by saying that the system works and effective, but it's plagued with software issues, and not quite up-to-date image quality. If you use iPad/iPod/iPhone the setup is quick and easy, however I have yet to be able to watch recording on SD-Card. When I tried, it crashes. In Windows, the setup took a little more time, and every browser is different. It requires JAVA and it may work on IE but not on Firefox or Chrome and vise versa.
