Summary: The company did not have this model in stock any more, but sent to me the next upgraded version of the camera for my use. I works even better than the one I wanted..... Great product, great company and received it fast.
Great camera. Unfortunately the seller was sold out and "upgraded" me to the BL-VT164W which is a horrible camera

Summary: I have a few of these BL-C121A cams and they are fantastic. After I placed my order I received a call from the seller, they were all out but would send me the newer replacement camera which cost about $100 more, they would waive the difference. Sounded good so I agreed. Newer is better right? Wrong. The replacement for this camera is the BL-VT164W and is completely unusable. It doesn't capture video which is the main purpose of these cameras.
Summary: I order two units to add to my existing camera network. They were labled as NEW in the listing and on the receipt but the boxes were clearly opened and one box even had writting on it, like someone checked offeverything that was in the box. So hoping these are truely new and they will perform as well as my other Panasonic cameras.
Great IP camera, strong WiFi, would like smtps support

Summary: The WiFi on this camera connected at the very extreme range of my place's signal, farther from the repeater than my Laptop or phone connected. Add the Ethernet connection and these cameras have been a reliably connected video stream source. Lot's of option to configure. The setting app (a web application residing on the camera) would crash during configuration fairly regularly (-1 star), but the camera itself would still be functional - providing motion detection alerts...
Summary: Panasonic BL-C121A Wireless Network Camera Panasonic BL-C1A Network Camera I have purchased and installed dozens of Panasonic cameras with great success. The specific steps a user has to complete to use Internet cameras can be challenging. There are advanced concepts that need to be understood before the many specific features can be implemented confidently.
Summary: I bought this to keep an eye on my dog during the day, I simply did not believe my neighbors complaints. As long as you have a PC it's a great buy. (At time of purchase there was no Mac software.) The enclosed instructions made set-up very easy. I was up and running the evening I openned the package. It's also a tough little camera, I've knocked it off it's stand several times and it's stick working. I haven't permanently afixed it anywhere yet.
Summary: I ordered this and it came quickly, and worked well. Although I was setting it up on a Mac, I found directions on how to do this easily on the web, and got it going in a short time. The trick is to connected it by wire first, and use the default IP address of x.x.x.253. Then it opens right up and you can configure it through any browser.
Very good! I can check up on my house at any time.

Summary: Simple, small, easy to install, good looking, works great. The software that it comes with isn't great, but after some setup and fiddling around with our network, we got it to work well as an indoor porch camera. We have it mounted inside the window. Image is pretty clear during the day... a little grainy in the evening hours, but with the porch light on we can clearly see who is at the front door.
