Summary: I bought this camera because I want to monitor my baby activities at home, especially my baby is staying with nany and granny during work day. There are standard rules I set, which I expect they will comply to keep my baby safe and healthy. I was doing a lot of research and it was hard to find a web camera that is movable from location to another. I tried two usb web camera, they work ok, but only work by my computer and the cyberlink youcam is great.
Summary: This video camera granted isnt the best out there, but it is a great all around good product. It might not have a stunning image but its still very decent for the price you pay for it. Additionally its wireless!! I might be placing them outdoors and stick them in some kind of camera casing. These are great because it comes with excellent software to record and manage all the cameras that you buy of this kind. So I buy only this kind.
Summary: Follow the installation directions carefully, know how to create port forwarding and DMZ services with your router, and install the included camera viewer on disk. Record the IP address that the camera has been assigned, you will need it when you are searching for the wireless camera mode. Set up the internet camera with your ethernet cable first, then install the camera viewer so you can find the camera in wireless mode for both LAN and INTERNET tabs.
Summary: I'll agree with the low light situation is not the best for these cameras, but if someone had a problem using it on Vista, they should have contacted their computer's manufacturer, or Cisco, since it works just fine on home premium or basic on 3 different computers I installed and run it on. Works fine on XP Home 32 and XP Pro 32 as well. In short, you should call a technician if you have a problem, that's what we get paid for! (And no I don't work for Cisco.
Summary: Easy to use if you are familiar with Linksys Products and know that the default IP address of the camera is 192.168.1.115 Cause......I had a hard time finding that information. Also user name is "admin" and so is the password, you have to enter both to get to the setup page. Picture is grainy and in low light conditions forget it. But if you want a portable network camera and use your own FTP program in good lighting conditions. This will do the job.
Summary: I work for a children's museum and we are going to set this up in our butterfly garden so we can webcast the activity going on in the garden. We needed a quality camera that was small. This fit the bill perfectly.
Pros: Accurate, Compact, Discreet, Easy To Set Up, Sensitive
Summary: This is a great product for the price. Picture is pretty good when you adjust the settings for the environment. However, the DDNS service that linksys provides is useless. It will not keep the correct IP address at all times. It seems to hit & miss. Overall, I will purchase several of these for home use.
