Summary: I purchased this through another company (sorry newegg) for financial reasons but wanted to leave a review here because I shop at new egg fairly regularly + this doesn't have a review. I run a dedicated box for video security with the freeware iSpy application.
Pros: motorized PTZ capability IR Wireless & Wired Decent length power cable Great GUI Compatible with iSpy freeware application decent mounting bracket with good range of motion
Cons: Resolution is dated IR doesnt throw very far
Nice hardware. Shamefully out-of-date and insecure web access

Summary: The camera itself works as advertised. I like it. The printed directions, too, are very clear. I feel confident that my grandmother could follow them to set up NAT, etc. If they had done the software just as well, then this would be a five-star review. Unfortunately, the web access is disgusting.
Summary: This camera works well and is very easy to set up. The Foscam software on the included CD that scans for the camera's IP address didn't work - it looks like it was written in half an hour. However, I used a nice little Android app called Fing to scan and find the camera's address.
Summary: audio doesn't work-it sends to a 3rd party website that doesn't work-I can't access it from out side of my WiFi area... 800 tech support is busy when I tried to call it... This was a waste of my time.... I am returning to Amazon - The claimed two way audio is a joke.
Summary: We have this camera set up in my son's room and we love it. I know there has been at least 1 report of hacking which is why we have this camera set up with under a very secure network with a secure password.

Summary: I am a lay person and am not good with computers. This is a no go for a person like me. We were unable to figure things out and didn't want to get a DVR and figure out how to record with this device so we gave up and returned it.
Summary: The set up for this camera is not so easy to set up. Had a problem trying to figure out the password and user name to get into program and the instructions to add program to your phone is not so simple. Hopefully I'll get it together soon. I did get it partially working and the camera is good.
