Excellent sub 100 Dollar net cam.

  • Summary: Great little camera to monitor the baby's room. Might purchase one for outside security, once I test drive this a bit more. Comments about my setup. A Synology NAS box works great with this camera. No leaving a large power sucking machine on.
  • Pros: Physical design isn't bad. I'd say a little on the bulky side. Wireless pickup with this is pretty good. No dropouts in my 1923 mpls bungalow (built like a fortress). Sound not tested. Hooked up to be accessed and record to a ds108j nas server. --this box doesn't seem to support the sound feature...
  • Cons: Gets a bit warm -- hopefully this means I can also use this model in Minnesota winters, in the unheated garage. To get a clear low light picture, you really have to remove the color (B&W mode). Doesn't hurt too much, unless you must have your color.

It works.

Anonymous, Newegg
20 October 2009
  • Summary: Wish the wall/desk mount had a sticky bottom to help hold in place.
  • Pros: Bought to overlook our employees while they are out in the yard and I couldn't be much happier. All of our employees are saying whats that up on the tower I say camera they so "oh" performance has went up 20%! I mounted it in a customer enclosure I built on our radio tower 75ft in the air.
  • Cons: Setup wasn't to great took me a while before I acutally got it to connect to our wireless router but once it connected there has been to problem.

Works as expected

  • Pros: I purchased this camera to access remotely and record any video to a server after the motion sensor has been triggered. Make sure you have a bit of knowledge with routers, remote administration, dyndns/dynamic IPs, wireless encryption, ftp setup and port forwarding. This knowledge will come in ha...
  • Cons: The camera is a bit bulky and does require a power outlet close by. This is something to consider if you wish to hide it or install it far away from any outlets.

Great deal, does what it's supposed to

Adam M., Newegg
23 July 2009
  • Summary: Cannot get better for the price. Looked for several options, was hesitant when read some reviews, fortunately some bad ratings that had do to with misconfiguration of the home network. I'm using it to monitor my dog from time to time.
  • Pros: - Solid picture quality in the daylight, - Good configuration options, - open firmware to play with, - great stability so far (you need to configure static IP or static dhcp, and forward 2 or 3 ports) - got it to work over http with sound and rtsp without sound.
  • Cons: - sound jitters, but I'm still able to hear what's going on. This is not supposed to be a HD solution, keep in mind,

These cameras are good

Darryl B., Newegg

  • Summary: highly recommended, however you need a fairly powerful wireless router to use with it.
  • Pros: Reliable when configured correct, cheap!!! Great value! So far I have purchased 3 units
  • Cons: You need to be fairly technical to get these cams to work reliably. I had to replace an old netgear router with a more powerful linksys 160n to get these cams to stay up. Initially one of my two units was faulty (constantly dropping) and Linksys replaced it without a problem.

Great Camera!

John W., Newegg
15 June 2009
  • Summary: I bought this camera and a POE device and have the camera installed 500 foot away from my computer. YES 500 FOOT. It works great!. at this range you must have a hard line connected to it via CAT5 and POE if there is no power where it is located.
  • Pros: Wireless and Wired Opperation, Can be powered with POE adaptor.
  • Cons: Not water proof. No night vision

Great Cam

Stephen H., Newegg
26 May 2009
  • Summary: I have no need for sound. I always disable it. Would be nice to cut the price 10 bucks with a model that doesn't have build in sound.
  • Pros: Great Cam. I've had It running for a couple of months now. Setup was easy as pie if you understand wireless routers. Never had it drop connection from my linksys wireless. I've set this up for two purposes: to check on my dog while I'm at work and to allow people to view a remote control robot an...
  • Cons: No cons here. The thing works perfectly.

Simple setup does exactly what I want

J. Beck, Amazon
5 May 2009
  • Summary: I was looking for an economic wireless network camera. I got much more than I expected with this camera. If you are anything above a Lv 3 techie/nerd class, and have ever setup a home wireless access point (with WEP/WPA encryption and know anything about SSIDs) or an DSL/Cable router then you'll be...

Works great with my iPhone

Chris L., Newegg
28 April 2009
  • Pros: This camera has a great CGI interface for passing JPG images to the iPhone. This allows for the webcam software (iPhone app) to view what is going on at your house. This works great as a baby monitor and as a Nanny-Cam
  • Cons: none
