Solid Camera

Robert P., Newegg
9 November 2012
  • Summary: Overall a good buy if you are using your camera to keep watch remotely over your home or kids. If you're looking for a camera which will save, or one for continuous recording suggest looking elsewhere. In fact you should purchase a DVR system for that. I will continue to buy edimax.
  • Pros: High-res camera. More accurate colors than your standard ipCam. I've own the Foscam FI8918W, Two Zmodo CM-I11123BKs, one Cisco Linksys WVC210. This camera is the best of the 4 that I use. The image is very sharp, and the camera is always up. I use dyndns services and the camera is always reachabl...
  • Cons: No night vision, but I knew that when I purchased it. The SC card slot and saving functions should just be written out. It flat out wouldn't work, no matter what I tried. Luckily I did not purchase the camera for this purpose.

Great picture, if you have enough light

Andrea F., Newegg
28 February 2012
  • Summary: Works great with Zoneminder, but be careful. The following paragraph applies to ZM users, or anyone that wants to use this with a 3rd-party app. One 1280x1024 camera equals 4.3 640x480 cameras in pixel count.
  • Pros: 1) Going from 640x480 to 1280x1024 with in a surveillance camera is a revelation. 2) Firmware features at this price are amazing. 3) One of few 802.3af compliant PoE cameras in this price range. 4) Though not small, still not very obvious once mounted. 5) Flexible design for mounting base. You'll...
  • Cons: 1) The 5mm lens @ f/2.8 is poor in low light. 2) Cheaper Trendnet and D-Link cameras have an angle of view of about 35 degrees vertical, 45 degrees horizontal, and 57 degrees in the hypotenuse. This camera is similar, but this camera is 1280x1024, so the aspect ratio is 5:4 instead of 4:3 (640x48...

Good Black Friday Deal

Anonymous, Newegg
30 November 2011
  • Summary: Check your ISP upload bandwidth, it's probably capped at 100KB/s or less. This makes viewing camera streams online problematic and having multiple cameras viewed simultaneously would only compound the problem. It appears the cam needs about 200-300KB/s sustained for a MPEG4 stream @ 640x480.
  • Pros: Pretty good video quality. Mounting hardware was good. Wireless is working well (keep range in mind). Cheapest 1.3mp out there. Color representation is fair and I like the focus wheel, although it is a bit challenging to get set just right.
  • Cons: I'm not sure the 1024x768 setting actually looks any better than 640x480 and it takes 4x the bandwidth which can tax your wifi, esp at long range. Lots of ports to forward (80, 4321, 554, 50000-60000) in order to make it viewable outside your LAN network, and half of these aren't even mentioned i...

Daniel G., Newegg

  • Summary: Can't beat this camera at this price on picture quality. I will purchase another.
  • Pros: For the price, nothing comes close to beating this on multi-pixel resolution. Ability to focus is great at this price (compared to my DSC-932L which can not be focused). Edimax appears to only have a few cams, not big in this field. Edimax tech support was great.
  • Cons: As with any IP camera, installation can be tricky. What I thought was a camera issue (and almost made me return it) was really a third party software product called Blue Iris. Finally got it working.

Not bad for Price

David D., Newegg
5 August 2011
  • Pros: It has a web interface. You can view your camera from a smartphone. I did it from a droid. It will take and store video's on a flash card that you provide. Picture quality not bad even on the smartphone.
  • Cons: Web interface a bit clnunky. I was not able to get the audio to work to either the browser or smartphone.

good for the price

Steven K., Newegg
19 April 2011
  • Summary: Would give 3 stars for performance. Giving 4 stars because it only cost $90 bucks. This is an update for my previous post - I could find a link for modifying it.
  • Pros: Pretty good price for the spec. The mjpeg video and all the setting (i think) were configurable from Iceweasel and Chrome on Debian. The other two video streams asked for Windows stuff. Once I got the default ip address changes to work with my setup, the wireless stays connected good.
  • Cons: This was the most difficult to configure network device I've experienced to-date. Had to learn a few things about my router and networking that I was happy not knowing. 15 fps at highest resolution blurs medium and fast moving objects easily. Might have to choose a lower res for a clearer moving ...

Arthur E., Newegg
15 April 2011
  • Summary: Would recommend it to others. This is my first IP camera so it was new ground to me.
  • Pros: Works as advertised. Good picture and very flexible
  • Cons: I had a distinct problem getting it to work on wireless. I skipped the Quick Setup Guide and went directly to the full manual (big Mistake). Once I got it to work wireless, things were fine. Also the swivel head for the tripod stand is a weak link in the design.

Preisgünstige Webcam (Wettercam)

Günter B., Amazon
12 January 2014
  • Summary: Ich nutze die Edimax seit April 2012 im Dauerbetrieb als Webcam (Wettercam). Sowohl Bildauflösung als auch die Anzahl der übertragenen Bilder sind einstellbar und völlig ausreichend. Die Kamera wird per WLAN ins Netzwerk eingebunden (IP-Kamera).

Firmware 1.15 zwingend erforderlich

W. Truemper, Amazon
19 June 2012
  • Summary: Vor dieser Version war die Kamera unbrauchbar, weil WLAN-Einstellungen weder erkannt noch dauerhaft abgespeichert wurden. Ein Stern Abzug, weil ich darauf ein Jahr warten musste.
