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 did a fair amount of research before buying this camera, reading reviews, comparing specs, etc. I was fairly confident this was the best internet camera in my price range. I don't know whether or not that's true or if this camera is representative of security cams in general, but I do know I was not impressed by this camera on any level. Video quality is terrible. Awful in low light. Setup and configuration procedures are draconian.
Summary: The motion detection doesn't work well at all. Other than that, it isn't a bad wireless camera. The audio isn't very good either and you can not take pictures of someone sitting next to a lamp.
Nice idea ... technology is too new ... wait on this purchase

Summary: The concept is nice ... 802.11g camera. However there are some fundamental flaws with the design. The streaming of the video is too heavy-weight for the 802.11g. A simple ping shows hops in excess of 800ms. As soon as I stop streaming, it is about 16ms ... which means the cams processor is overloaded. The stream is very choppy. As for pan / tilt ... only works 25% of the time.
Summary: I bought this camera to monitor my house over my wireless network when I'm away. Here are my impressions after one week: PROS: 1. Kinda cool looking. The large lens cover camouflages the camera. 2. Images are decent (not great) in low light. 3. Multiple people can view the camera remotely through an IE browser (no other browser will work, however). 4.
Summary: a virtual nightmare with set up. no help from their support staff on phones, nor online Q&A. poorest choice i ever have made in a product!! I am a savvy computer type with network experience and this one for the books. Item still sitting where i left it......., useless.

Summary: Beeldintensiteit van deze IP camera blijft niet constant. Daardoor is de "motion detection" onbruikbaar: triggert immers constant spontaan o.w.v. densiteitsfluctuaties. Linksys zou aan updates werken maar tot nu toe heeft nog niets iets opgeleverd dat bruikbaar is als "security camera". Vind je deze beoordeling nuttig?
Pros: Nette overzichtelijke interface.
Cons: Beeldkwaliteit: beelddensiteit fluctueert veel te veel.
