Summary: This would have been 4-5 star product if it hadn't died a few days after 1-year warranty expired. Nice picture quality, responsive program. I really enjoyed it and have planned to buy a few more. Oh well, now I have to look somewhere else.
Summary: I have purchased over 150 items on Amazon and have only had an issue with two. Unfortunately this is one of them. Lasted 11 1/2 months and then my computer couldnt find the camera anymore. I tried resetting it and followed all instructions but to no avail. Warranry was 1 year but I waited to long to call. Loved the product while it worked but for that price it should last longer than 11 months. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
Summary: I bought the outdoor master system first. This worked well so I decided to buy the indoor camera shortly after, I wish I had waited. This is not a reliable home surveillance system. One camera knocks the other off, the motion is very blurry and the cameras need a reset at least once a week. I have static IP addresses for the camera, they are on separate circuits and all I have been able to get for support was a new plug or blame on my "power lines".
Summary: Have been using this camera for about 8 months. It works great most of the time however there is a lot of problems with it not recording all the time when the computer is off. Example I just came back from vacation so the computer was off, network working fine. It recorded to the SD card the first 2 days then did not record anything for about 8 days then started recording again a few days before I came home. This has been an ongoing problem.
Summary: If you are looking for a Toy to play with, then you might be happy with this system. However, if you are looking for a serious Surveillance system to protect your property (not a fancy web cam) then this system has way too many flaws and missing features. The outdoor cameras themselves look and feel to be good quality (only time will confirm that), but the software is a joke.
Summary: Let me begin by saying that I have used this camera every day for the past 10 months. When you read other reviews from folks that have had the camera for a few days please note the credibility of their review. I will not bore you with hundreds of words involving detailed analysis and personal opinions - I will make this as short and sweet as I can. Where and how this camera is being used: My wife operates a home based business with an entrance in the rear of our home.
barely adequate, think twice if you're serious about security

Summary: I'm highly dissapointed that the software doesn't allow you to serve a feed from your own computer and only offers you the ability to get your security feed over the web if you subscribe to the monthly service. There's no reason they can't let you use your own computer as the server, at no cost to Logitech. The software is poorly designed. The layout is thoughtless and unintuitive. Controls are hidden or haphazardly placed.
Summary: Installation was a breeze: install the latest software, attach a few color-coded cables, and connect to home AC power. Everything came up immediately. Nice interface. I liked it so much, I was planning on adding more cameras to cover additional areas outside my home. However, over the 3 days I have had this device in use, it has only been up about half the time - constantly losing connection with the camera.
Summary: I got my camera two days ago, the setup was very easy, hook it up to power and the computer (need a free router port), start the software and it is running. It could not be much easier. The problem is really the software in the camera and also the monitoring software. To me it looks as if this is another product that got rushed out the door without any quality testing (except for the poor customers in the field).
Outdoor camera is busted, water intrusion, remote server issues, DIY surveillance

Summary: Logitech Alert 750E and 700E security system The Logitech Alert Commander software was easy to install on my PC, however, the hardware portion was a bit overwhelming and confusing at first. It runs on a Powerline network that eventually connects to your home LAN. While you could follow the instructions, a beginner/novice to computers may want to seek the assistance of someone more knowledgeable in PCs. The actual network connection is fairly slow.
