Summary: Once you have the power supply, or POE on your router, it's easy to hook up and use. The automatic motion detecting feature is nice. I hooked mine up to record 1 second before and 1 second after any motion. The next day, I had video of every kid and car that went by my home. It also records the sounds with the mic and logs time and date with every recording. The pan feature is great too. You just point to the spot you want it to center to, and it moves there quickly.
Summary: Overall I am very pleased with this camera. I have 3 installed in our vacation home which is over a thousand miles away. I use these combined with software to keep track of visitors and to just enjoy the view from our vacation hideaway. Contrary to other reviews, documentation is available online and on a CD which ships with the camera. Setup is easy if all you want to do is view images remotely. Remote data logging is more complex so expect that to be challenging.
Summary: takes some technical skill to make the most of this camera. All in all the camera's have performed suberbly for us. excellent standalone solution or multi-camera system with NAS NVR. nice to be able to look in from anywhere any time!
Pros: Exceeded expectations
Cons: wider angle of veiw could help in some cases
Summary: I've had this camera for about a week now and am very happy with it. I'm writing this because the other reviews seem to be very negative due to documentation issues. The documentation is sparse, but the camera and software are very intuitive. The picture quality is great. The motion detection works very well. I've paired this with a Synology DS209+ NAS, which I use to capture motion rather than the FLASH card option.
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Easy to use
