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. The picture was not that great when it did work, and the field of view always disappointed.
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. While designed for smaller implementations this product is highly reliable and comes with proprietary poe 9v injectors so everything runs through one cat5 cable. Configurable through IE and comes with software to tie multiple cameras in one GUI.
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. The picture quality is the same as the BL-C1 (640x480), but the firmware and options is much more sophisticated.
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.
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. I get web mail so connecting the event storage to my email would have been a problem. I did some research on the web and found that Win7 supports a FTP server.
Summary: I'll admit I was a bit leary purchasing this product as I was tasked to find a resonable price outdoor webcam that we can mount to our Church Clock Tower. Well not anymore. After a long climb up narrow stairs and running a T-6 cable all the way down, I hooked into a router extender and installed the software on the computer. Setup was easy to follow. Once installed and setup I was amazed at how clear the image is.
