bought it for 20 bucks new on amazon. no worth a dollar more

Morgan408, Amazon
8 March 2012
  • Summary: audio has echo and distortion. the lense is a manual so you can only focus on one object, everything else is blurry if its not within the focused area. its not the most attractive one on the market, i paid $30 shipped (new) and for that price its worth it, but sold it a few days later regardless.

A few things you need to know about this unit

the optimizer, Amazon
20 February 2012
  • Summary: I spent hours trying configuring unit by myself then I gave in and called the company's tech. There was nothing that made sense. I purchased 2 of these cameras thinking that I could work through whatever installation issues. It could be it's just the particular cameras/software that are faulty.

  • Summary: I have 2 of these and suggested it to my brother. Since then I have purchased 3 Foscam wireless/IR/2-way Audio with Tilt/Pan and love them. They are easy to set up and so versatile.

So So Camera

David D., Newegg
9 August 2008
  • Summary: Not sure why all these people say it does not work with WPA. Mine has never failed using WPA2-TKIP, and works flawlessly with my WAP54G with "lower case" key. Perhaps the others reporting have nearby APs transmitting on the same channel causing interference. My advice..
  • Pros: Inexpensive, okay feature set, picturers are sharp in daylight hours and video is actually pretty responsive.
  • Cons: Firmware is limiting. You need to use scapshot.cgi built-in to get snapshots pushed to a website...that is somewhat of a botched implementation. Linksys could easily add features to the firmware to make this more functional, but they drag their feet on consumer products. It also sucks in poor lig...

  • Pros: Cheap Wireless Supports WPA Personal with TKIP but not AES despite what people are saying.
  • Cons: Cheap, low res, low frame rate, only works in IE or through some asf kungfu.

Linksys Wireless Camera

M. C. Bowles, Amazon
13 April 2008
  • Summary: The camera seems to be a good product in itself, but since I didn't have a Linksys wireless router, I never could get it to work. Support helped me for awhile, but then gave up saying they couldn't help me with my Zone Alarm router. I will probably return it as I can't sacrifice security for it.

Bigger than it looks.

N. Schweitzer, Amazon
13 April 2008
  • Summary: The image quality of this camera isn't great, and as the other reviewer states, it needs lots of light. The resolution of the video is fairly poor, comparable to a very cheap 4-year-old webcam. If you need to see detail in the image (e.g. for certain security-camera purposes), then it will not work.

Linksys falls short

C. Whelan, Amazon
13 April 2008
  • Summary: I am a Linux and OS/X user so the fact that the viewer software provided by Linksys only works on Windows in Internet Explorer through an out of date ActiveX control is a bit ridiculous.

Good wireless camera under $100

LI LIANG, Amazon
26 April 2007
  • Summary: Bought one recently. For less than $100, don't expect too much. Easy to set up. Video quality is not good. I guess it is the same as those over $200 because of the small lens. Customer support is easy to reach online, but not very helpful if you get a not-easy problem.
