Good daytime camera with caveats

Brad S., Newegg
21 September 2012
  • Summary: Abandoned the wireless, went with wired connection. If you plan to record at night you'll need extreme illumination.
  • Pros: Very good daylight images.
  • Cons: Terrible low-light images. Frequent dropped and not recovered wireless signal. User interface will intimidate non-techies but it gets the job done.

Wireless Cam

Ron J., Newegg
2 April 2012
  • Summary: This is my first experience with a WiFi camera. The WiFi both wireless and wired work fine, but quality of the camera is poor. The power, wireless, and wired network lamps should be on the rear so that they do not reflect on a window glass when using camera to monitor through a window because they...
  • Pros: Reasonably priced, WiFi or wired, small footprint, adjustable mounting bracket, night vision, sound.
  • Cons: Even with an adjustable lens, not a really sharp image. Would be difficult to recognize a person more than 6 foot from camera. Full features only work in Internet Explorer - no camera adjustments in Firefox or Chrome. Will not work with Internet Explorer in Windows 8. Power, wifi, network lamps i...

Not what I expected

Eric C., Newegg
11 March 2012
  • Summary: I am slowly migrating from analog cameras (16 of them) to the ip-based approach. I now have 5 different IP cameras, each with their own pluses/minuses. Bang for the buck, this is not a bad purchase, and thus I've only dinged it one egg.
  • Pros: - PoE - Powerful IR (casts shadows) - Ability to turn off all indicator LEDs (bright blue is on by default) - Convenient reset button (no pin required) - though I've not had to use it yet. - Works perfectly with IPCamViewer (android app) - BlueIris DVR software has this listed in their configurat...
  • Cons: - BIGGEST CON: 5mm lens - which is too zoomed in for most small-room indoor applications. - Web interface only works 100% with IE (though IE tab in Chrome does work as an alternative). - Frame rate at highest resolution on any format is only 15 FPS (clearly stated in description). - Manual focus ...

What a pain to get going.

Scott S., Newegg
7 April 2011
  • Summary: Don't search for the utility. Not needed. IP is 192.168.2.3 by default so set a computer to 192.168.2.x on your netork.
  • Pros: Looks great. Picture is ok. Seems to work well.
  • Cons: No CD included. Manufacturer site has no downlaod for the utility as talked about in the manual and only available on cd. DHCP doesn't work without using utility on the CD. Manufacturer suggesed I return it. Very interesting.

  • Excerpt: В общем, впечатление неплохое. Красивая и функциональная упаковка, всё написано, хорошая комплектация. На официальных сайтах в перечне комплектовки нигде не написано, что крепёж идёт в комплекте, что в результате явилось ОЧЕНЬ приятной неожиланностью.
  • Pros: Ноч. видение работает до 5 метров, На софт в комплекте, пишет со звуком с каждой камеры!, Легко настроить в LAN, Отправляет фото и видео на e-mail, Пишет на SD карточку!, Легко прошивается!, Светодиоды индикации МОЖНО ОТЕЛЮЧИТЬ!!!, Таймер для каждой из 16-ти камер!, Русский язык!
  • Cons: Плохая передача цвета., Не регулируется чувствительность срабатывания ночного видения на автомате., Угол обзора всего 40 градусов., Большая и сильно греется., CD карточка торчит., Reset легко нажать случайно.

Mit Fritz-Box 7270 !!!

Laurens, Amazon
6 February 2012
  • Summary: Ich bin kein Neuling in Sachen WLAN, aber diese Kamera wollte nichts mit meiner Fritz-Box per WLAN zu tun haben. Trotz richtiger Einstellung ging da gar nichts. Per Lan 100 % tig, wer also die Kamera mit Lan betreiben will, dem kann ich sagen, klare Kaufempfehlung.

Günstig

H. Schaefer, Amazon
17 January 2012
  • Summary: Günstige WLAN-Kamera mit preisbedingten Schwächen. Die Montage ist einfach, der Fuß praktisch zu Montage. Setup passabel, Webinterface akzeptabel. Eine klare Schwäche ist die Optik und der Sensor, schon bei nur schwächerem Licht säuft das Bild an, an grauen Tagen sieht man ohne Licht in einem Zimmer...

Gute Kamera - allerdings mit Schwächen

Andreas, Amazon
20 December 2011
  • Summary: Die Kamera hat für diese Preisklasse eine wirklich sehr gute Bildqualität. Die Installation und die Netzwerkeinbindung klappte auf Anhieb. Die Verarbeitung ist gut, das mitgelieferte Ministativ wäre ganz ok, doch der Kugelkopf taugt nichts. Leider ist die Bewegungserkennung nicht zu gebrauchen.

Nicht für alle Zwecke zu gebrachen

stephen, Amazon
9 September 2011
  • Summary: Ich hatte die Kamera als preiswerte Indoor-Überwachungskamera gekauft, ausschlaggebend hierfür war die Motion-Detection-Funktion. Leider musste ich, wie mein Vorredner, später feststellen dass die Kamera hierfür nur eingeschränkt zu gebrauchen ist, doch dazu später.
