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. …
Great camera at excellent price for use with Internet Explorer equipped PCs
5 October 2011
Summary: This Linksys camera is a well engineered innovative product. It is an excellent value for this price point. Expect to spend 2-5x more for a comparable or better camera. The wvc200 (or wvc210 new model) work very well for what they were designed. However there are some shortcomings.
Summary: I have had this unit in service for over 2 years as a remote monitoring camera at my vacation home. The unit works very well and delivers better than average video quality for a web cam. I have not had any operational issues with the unit. I am using the wireless to connect to my router.
Summary: Linksys/Cisco no longer sells the WVC200 and has upgraded to the WVC210. Although the color has been greatly improved on the newer model - gone is the IR sensitivity of the older model. This is unfortunate as I used these to monitor my children overnight.
Summary: Cam came exactly when they said. I like the range of motion. I'm not sure how good the wireless range is: I've seen people have issues with the range but, I have the antenna horizontal (hidden from view) and it's 30'+ from the router (G) through 2 walls and it works just fine.
Summary: Good solid build, the pan/tilt motor is really loud. I had to return it due to it's incompatibility with my Macs as it will only work with Internet Explorer. PC setup had problems too,I was only able to log in once or twice to the IP that was assigned.
Summary: This is an older model of the product. Many improvements have been made to the newest model WVC210. If money is an issue go with the WVC200 the improvements are not that significant. Both models have an email notification which is NON functional.
Summary: First of All let me say the Lynksys is Great! (Company and products) Now for the review: The WVC200 camera with audio has all the bells and whistles that a security camera would want to have. I never did get the (wireless) part configured and partly due to what was or wasn't in the packaged box.
Summary: I bought a couple of these cameras to set up a home system and setup is a pain. Although overall nice cameras very buggy. I use a Linksys WRT600N router with TKIP and was able to set up one camera wireless with no problem. The other 2 to no avail.
