Great camera with free streaming to my Blackberry!
Just a guy, Amazon
2 September 2014
Summary: This is really a great camera. I bought this as a video monitor in my daughter's room so I could see into her crib at night. It was fairly easy to setup on my wifi in my house. Once attached to my wifi network, I am able to use the web-based interface to view the picture and adjust all settings. I am even able to view the video, live, on my blackberry browser! (all for free.
Summary: We've been using the WVC80N camera for a while on our home network with a Linksys WRT350N router. The WVC80N is the next generation IP camera from Linksys. It's older similar looking twin the WVC54GCA is good but had some issues that the WVC80N solves. You can see reviews of the WVC54GCA cam at myhomeserver. The WVC80N adds Wireless N, an easier setup for Remote Viewing and best of all, direct writing to a NAS drive to record video!
Summary: It took me about three days to get my five cameras that I have installed at my house all dialed in. They are very reliable; the cameras work VERY well with my wireless router; the motion detection works very reliably ONCE you have set everything up correctly. Please note -- I did NOT set these cameras up using the software. I programmed each by hooking them up on a computer that saw them at their default IP address of 192.168.1.115.
Summary: Have three of these units. Two are set up at our cabin in the mountains looking out and inside. Once I figured out how to set them up and monitor online, they work great. I plan on adding some more in our house in town. Very capable units.
Summary: I bought this camera some time ago to monitor my dogs at home while I'm at work. It has done the job well for me for about a year, but it's about time to replace it for a more feature-rich camera... What drew me to this camera was that it could operate on it's own and stream video without having to leave a computer on all day. The set-up, though, was not simple and you need to know how to open up ports on your router in order to make it work.
Doesn't work as it should, NO support and Linksys said it was out of Warranty!

Summary: This camera does not work as it should, too many issues to list. At Linksys I got transferred too many times, they tried to send me off to Cisco but Cisco doesn't support this (even though Cisco is all over the box and product). Once I did get to someone that said they supported it they obviously were not trained on it and had no idea what they were talking about. They also told me that the camera was out of warranty (just got it two days ago!).
Summary: No trouble at all getting the software loaded. You get a year free Remote access from TZO DDNS Service so you can be anywhere on the internet (you need to go into settings each time you start computer up after shutting down- if you leave it on all the time, The only thing you have to check on is once in a while the connection will be lost: Just go back to settings and click enable for the TZO).
Summary: I purchased this about 2-3 months ago. I got it to work wirelessly but had trouble getting the motion sensor to work correctly. I never could get it to work so that I could view it through my phone or ipad. I spent several hours trying to get it to work, including calling customer service and purchasing an app. But to no avail. so i gave up. Then I bought a new computer, thinking my old XP computer may have been a contributor to the problem.
Summary: After sending one camera back to Amazon and another one back to Linksys, I finally got one to work. Linksys needs to change suppliers in China, because the electronic components they are using are low quality and cheap, the components have a short life span.
