Summary: These cameras are junk. Avoid. Edimax is, in my opinion, making some poorly engineered devices so they can take your money and run when the devices start failing left and right. Serious vendors would want to investigate so many failures and fix it..
Pros: While it works, it's a pretty decent camera. The night vision is pretty good and covers a large room well. Edimax looked like a promising company until they just started shipping half developed garbage.
Cons: I owned 4 of these cameras, they all suddenly died around 18-20 months I replaced 3 of them on warranty via Edimax and the replacements also died around the 18 month mark. Edimax refused to replace a second time. I got extremely tired of the RMAs. They were all attached to either surge protectors...
Summary: If I were dissatisfied I would have given less than 2 eggs, but honestly it's a good camera. It just failed when all the other cameras I have in my house are still going strong after years of continual use. Edimax is a good brand.
Pros: Excellent resolution, and powerful IR beam for night time viewing. Movement of camera is responsive. Microphone is sensitive, and the web UI is very thorough.
Cons: Disclaimer: I am of the thought that electronics are not eternal, however I feel that if I paid over $100 for an ipcam it should at least last 2 years. Product died completely after 1 year and 4 months usage. All three lights light up on unit, and unit is unreachable. Buy with caution. I believe ...
Pros: IP wireless setup straightforward, use the cloud cards. This can work on LAN, WAN, and wireless. A router with WPS is recommended. Outside and inside, although if outside use use waterproof spot. Software isn't first class but it does the job on Windows and Android and your Web browser, and it's ...
Cons: Electrical plug is short, So buy an extension cord, be mindfull of using it outdoors in rainy as I don't think it is waterproof. If you have a low tech level you might not understand how to get it to work.
Summary: I should have read the reviews before I purchased this camera. I am exchanging the camera, if the replacement works any better I will post an update.
Pros: Picture quality.
Cons: It works for a few days, Poor network connectivity: It appears that several other reviewers have had similar issues. it quit conneting to the network. Bad Value: I have cameras that are half the price working flawlessly. Picture quality and price go hand in hand (better picture quality = more $$).
A great economical choice where critical consistent monitoring is not necessary
3 November 2013
Summary: This was purchased to be used as a baby monitor for a child with special needs and I have been using it for a little more than a month. I was looking to buy something with pan/tilt without having to pay a ton of money.
Summary: I can't stress enough how poor the software is. And of course it is proprietary to only Edimax it will not see any other cameras in my network. Use IP-Cam or better use Blue Iris which will see almost any manufacturer camera even the desk on your computer.
Pros: Solid WiFi connection. Easy to setup. Better as a limited inside cam.
Cons: Don't even think of using the software it's stone-age. I use this cam with Blue Iris and it works fairly well. However, I can not get the sound to work with Blue-Iris. Others are right the colors are week and pink and the IR light strength is very, very limited..
