Summary: I have been using this new G series DCS 900 for about three months; it is is much better than the older B series cameras on my network. This one runs much cooler, has never "locked-up" and has the option that it can be viewed with or without a password (password still required to access internal settings). A greatly improved and much more robust product.
Summary: Pro: good picture for price, nice mounting hardware included. Con: hard to set-up, bad manual, not Mac-compatible. These are *not* Mac-compatible except insofar as "compatible" means you can use your Mac to access the internet. They *require* a PC to set-up and a PC to run the included management software. Also, the instructions are absolutely terrible.
Summary: cheap camera, does what is says not much more.... a good toy, I would not recommend it for any real security purposes ( it would make a ok baby monitor although it does not work well in low light ) it seems to run the same software (& firmware) as the Hawking NETWORK CAMERA 11M WIRELESS ( NC320W )
Product discontinued-no support available, do not buy
3 October 2007
Summary: Mine arrived, tried to set it up, wouldn't work, called support, product is discontinued, no support available. Asking for a refund is getting me a run-around, will probably have to enter a claim soon.
Summary: This camera can cause frustrations when one is not educated enough about IP settings, Gateway, and many other technicalities, including ISP service requirements to be able to program the camera for browser viewing and knowing how to "ping" your Windows XP system to track the wireless progress of settings made. I gave up, and found a friend in the very NETWORKING profession.
Summary: I purchased two of these and both were defective. Software install was easy and instructions were simple but the camera could not be found by the either of my PCs with cable direct to the PC or through my router. The unit appeared to work with lights showing LAN connect but the software could not find the camera. The service number answered quickly but could not help and eventually cut me off.
Summary: Price was right for this camera, but miss some of the remote control features available on higher price cameras. Like the software that comes with it. Include software: D-Link D-View software is more comprehensive and has better features for alerting. I like the other s/w interface with IP-View better (simpler), but the alerting features were not as good as D-Link D-View.
Summary: Although, not as I expected. I have a webcam already attached to my computer running a motion sensitive software called HomeWatcher...I expected these cameras to operate the same way...They don't. First, setting up the cameras was simple easy. I did have some problems, but that was my network...After I reconfigured my network, I can now view my cameras (I have 4 of them) on my home network and from work.
