Summary: An important thing to note is that the latest .24 firmware breaks WPA/WPA2 support. Mine shipped with .24 and I had to downgrade back to .22 for it to work. A bit disappointing, but hopefully future firmware will fix this glaring problem. The linksys forums have the link to a custom built .22 (oddly enough with german language selected by default, but don't worry, all the menus are still english).
Pros: Picture quality is surprisingly good for a 640x480 CMOS. Motion detection isn't perfect, but it works if you tweak it a little bit and understand it's totally based on video. Audio is acceptable but not wonderful.
Cons: Wireless range isn't excellent; I have a very powerful wireless AP with a 12 dBi omnidirectional antenna and a 6 dBi directional antenna, and I had to reposition it so the camera could send video back at a decent bitrate (around 2 megabits is where it sits).
Linksys Wireless-G Internet Home Monitoring Camera WVC54GCA: Keep an eye on the builders
26 August 2009
Summary: These days one must be very careful who one invites inside their house. While many people might seem trust worthy on the outside you never really know who you're dealing with so one should always have maximum security. Fed up with dodgy builders constantly stealing stuff, yet no evidence to prove it, I now have a range of IP cameras to keep an eye on strangers working in the house without having to follow them around.
