OK, but did not last as long as it should

mark11223344, Amazon
3 December 2013
  • Summary: Purchased this camera Feb 2011, after less than 3 years it went dead, while it was working it was "OK" but for the money (I paid over $300) it simply was not worth it as there are so many other cameras on the market.

broken out of box

Tarma, Amazon
16 July 2012
  • Summary: First camera never worked. Just a blinking amber light (about 1 per second). Second camera worked for a few minutes, then back to the same blinking amber light problem. I'm not going to try for a third! On the other hand, Amazon made returns easy.

My first surveillance camera

James L Smith, Amazon
14 June 2012
  • Summary: I had been looking at cameras for a few months since my car was stolen out of my driveway. I decided to go with a network camera and the BL-C140A was my choice. I mounted it over my garage. The view was fine out into the street. The real time view works well from my Win7 browser.

Watch out for sunlight

Roger B., Newegg
29 December 2011
  • Summary: User and password have onerous restrictions - like you can't use 'admin' as a user name! or letters only for passwords.
  • Pros: Size, OK image. Good software. Inexpensive POE solution.
  • Cons: I have two of these, one gets a half-day of sunlight on the lens, and that lens has turned cloudy. Make sure the lens is protected from sunlight.

Some issues

Roger B., Newegg
25 November 2011
  • Summary: One nit; extra restrictions on user names and passwords, length and type of characters make 'admin' or alpha only password unusable. Irratating. Really, how security critical is a webcam?
  • Pros: Good interface. Ok image.
  • Cons: I have two of these. One gets more direct sunlight on its lens and its lens has become foggy. Picture is now almost unusable. Keep the lens out of direct sunlight.

Best IP Camera I've Ever Used And I've Used Many!

Ed, Amazon
11 November 2011
  • Summary: Let me start out with the fact that I've worked in CCTV industry for many years. Works out of the box if you are smart enough to run a ip scan on your network and provided your not stacking routers.

Good daylight image, rich user interface, no SSL email support

Alan Smith, Amazon
3 November 2011
  • Summary: I've had this camera, and a BL-C210A (Indoor PTZ model) setup for about a week now and overall I'm happy with the image and user interface. Multiple camera setup was a bit of bear. I never did get Viewnetcam.com working for me, but I believe that it will work.

Better, not much different than BL-C1

Kindle Customer, Amazon
31 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought a couple of these to replace my old BL-C1 webcams on my house. The BL-C1s were indoor cameras, but they lasted for about 5 years outside before the power supplies fried inside the camera. I am hoping these BL-C140A models will be a little more robust with the electronics.

They work well, they're high quality but they are ...

Samira Mahjoub, Amazon
28 September 2011
  • Summary: They work well, they're high quality but they are extremely complicated to set up - especially with multiple cameras. I spent HOURS on the phone with the support and I still have one I can't get online.

Great Inexpensive Camera

Mr Consumer, Amazon
27 September 2011
  • Summary: These cameras are great. I have had 2 of these in operation for several years and they perform flawlessly. They are mounted outside in wet unprotected areas and are reliable and have been working without any problems.
