Ok for viewing but software and motion detection could be better
29 November 2009
Summary: Software that comes with the camera isn't that great. I was able to connect to the camera wirelessly within a few minutes to view the image but getting it setup to record on detecting motion didn't work for me.
Summary: Camera failed to find wireless network, despite being in same room as router and other wireless devices connected ok. Connected camera using wired connection to test software features and video quality.
Summary: I set this up and could see perfectly with the internal network. However, the external service was not good. I never could get it to work. I called everyone but they all pointed at each other. They mostly blamed my IP service for not allowing me to get a free channel out.
Summary: I purchased a few of these cameras to keep an eye on my dogs and the house while away. After reading the reviews, I didn't even bother installing the software. If all you want to do is see what's happening NOW via a web browser, then there's no need for the security software anyway.
Summary: I installed the camera successfully, and can view it over the internet. What I do not like about it is that once you connect to the camera, all security information about your network are shown. You can even see the WPA2 security token and SSID.
Summary: Where to begin? Well, the camera works, but thats about all I can say positively. Let's start with the hardware. The unit is a nice design with no external antenna, but is a little on the big side.
Summary: Actually, at this point in time the camera is $89. I bought one a couple of weeks ago and have ordered 3 more. I have several Pansonic BL-C131a cameras and like them a lot. But even at the $240 price they are going for now, I'd rather have more cameras than Pan/Tilt capability.
Summary: Simply put, this is the most disappointing Linksys product I have ever owned. It is clearly not ready for production and Linksys should have taken more time to develop it properly. I purchased this item primarily for the "motion detection" feature which emails pictures after motion is detected.
Summary: Overall the this wireless camera is good, and works with Macs - although it is not supported, once you know the default IP address you can set up the camera with any web browser really, and the PC software is only truly necessary if you have several of those.
