Summary: I enjoy Linksys / Cisco product and usually find them to be high quality. The casing on this camera is nice and the interface is much like any other linksys product. However the video quality leaves much to be desired.
Pros: Ability to aim camera via web browser, wireless worked great. Audio with video was nice. High frame rate.
Cons: High res and high quality is not impressive. Camera is not sensitive to low light dispite what the box says. After being on for an hour or two grey dead spots started showing up in the output. Rebooting the camera did not fix this. Does not support the ability to do motion capture and still captu...
Excerpt: The WVC200 networking wireless camera is the most affordable device if you want to add a security camera in your shop or at home. Last year, I helped my customer install this camera. I tell you, this is so easy to install if you have an existing network at home. …
Pros: Camera works well. Setup is not as difficult as people say. IP address displays on LED screen. Camera has built in webserver. You can type IP address in your browser and set it up online. You just have to hard wire it to your network before you turn it on to enable the nic and then restart it wit...
Cons: Does not support WPA2 security (very sad for a newer product). Webserver not compatible with iPhone. You can configure it but cannot view the video.
Summary: Motiion detection produces lots of false positives -- emails with ~1MB attachments when there has been nothing moving in front of the camera. It will fill your mailbox, especially if you set the sensitivity too high. At night, the image "noise" is a particularly good trigger for motion detection.
Pros: It works. Image quality is acceptable. Sensitive to infrared illumination.
Cons: Emailed videos, as a consequence of enabling motion detection, are unviewable in Vista. What's the point if you cannot use this for unattended intruder detection! The device emails a ".ASF" video file which will not play in Vista's Windows Media Player because it is missing a Sharp audio codec. A...
Summary: I'm connecting this wireless to a WRK54G router which I've changed from the standard configuration and I still had no problem. I plugged it in to a hard line, logged in on my ROUTER to view the DHCP clients, and found it.
Pros: Setup was easy. I had it operating (via a hardline) within 5 minutes of opening the box.
Cons: Wireless setup was straightforward, however they didn't mention in the instructions that you must unplug the wired connection, power off, then back on for the wireless to initialize.
Summary: Tech help is terrible. Kept getting "mysteriously" disconnected or worse yet, put on hold for seemingly an eternity. The techs just don't have a clue so don't get your hopes up. LINKSYS is definitley not ready to support this caamera.
Pros: Got everything to work except email notification when motion detected.
Cons: email notification just does not work, period! I spent hours on it.
Summary: After trying for over a day to get the camera to work wirelessly I had to return it - the wireless component did not work at all. All settings were exactly as instructed in the installation manuals but the camera just did not work in the wireless mode. I would not recommend this device at all.
