Excerpt: Bought this camera to experiment a bit with home surveillance.The setup is easy and the camera seems to have good quality.So far the only problem is related to the bolt that holds the camera to the bracket. It is made of weak metal.
Summary: You will probably need to add a WiFi signal repeater to ensure solid connectivity if you have a standard WiFi setup in your home. Just don't get the HooToo HT-WR01.........yow, what a pile. Camera is great though.
Pros: Easy setup, install.
Cons: Motion detection a little flaky, but pretty good overall. Night vision works well with the IR. A little blurry/grainy, but pretty good for $85.
Summary: I read all of the review here bought it with trepidation. Now I begin to lose my temper with it The WLAN was not hard to set up, but a lot of rebooting was needed. I've had it four days now an still cannot get it to work good enough to mount it as I fear I'll just have to take it straight down again...
Summary: Foscam have this annoying habit of having 2 firmwares for the same camera. eg from their website / email: FI8904W - Version 126.96.36.199 - Upgrading from 11.25.2.xx Download FI8904W Latest Firmware FI8904W - Version 188.8.131.52 - Upgrading from 11.35.2.xx Download FI8904W Latest Firmware So if you dont...
Summary: Apologies in advance for the long review. I hadn't heard of Foscam until recently. A burglary has caused me to review my house security arrangements and I decided that some outside cameras should be part of the solution.
Summary: This was my first experience with a security camera, and I needed to use it on a Linux operating system. It took me a while to work out the IP address for the camera on my wifi router, but then it worked fine.
Good cameras! But try the FI8905's if you want a better quality picture

Summary: The cameras are overall very good and they are priced well. There are a lot of cameras out there which are cheap and rubbish. These are well built and the images look the part. Foscam do do better quality cameras very similar to this with a 1.3megapixel lens which is what I eventually went for as...
Summary: We bought 6 of these camera's to set up an outside security system specifically to record any events such as intruders in our gardens or walking around our large detached house. My comments here might not be relevant to every one. It depends on what you want from these cameras.
Summary: I ordered this camera following a break in and wanted to improve my home security. I have a degree in electronic engineering and was stupidly duped by the misleading naming of this product both here at Amazon and on Focscam's own website.
