Frown

  • Summary: This was the first IP Camera that I purchased. The BLC1A is an "OK" camera with an "OK" picture for the price. User Friendly and free to access the camera through viewnetcam.com. I recently purchased 2 more Panasonic IP cameras (BL-C121) that was more money and had more features.

Ok if you're not expecting much

FRANCOIS D., Newegg
27 March 2012
  • Summary: Reading others review, I wondered if I bought the same camera. While the ethernet adds value to it, there's surely better devices than this. I probably was expecting too much out of it.
  • Pros: Decent image during the day or when the room has enough light. Ethernet, ftp,email. Plugged to my network, didn't use the CD or software. Simply went straight to the camera IP via browser and set it to a static IP. Picture is sent to the ftp server on the same network. Emails were working fine al...
  • Cons: Image gets horrible as soon as the light dims. And it's already not epic to begin with. The motion detection sometimes almost need to see a gigantic thing in front of it. Sometimes it sends picture while the detected motion is gone already even though it stayed in front of it quite enough time. A...

my fav. wired camera

Onlooker, Amazon
6 January 2012
  • Summary: I have many of these cameras... Their power supplies are often faulty(after many months of use) but it's a good stable wired camera with motion detection and superior low-light optics. I've paid $35-$50 for them. It is some for some higher resolution cameras for the same price!

Expensive and Short-Lived Power Adaptor

Vic, Amazon
21 November 2011
  • Summary: I have no complaints against the installation or operation of the camera. It is designed to work as expected. Its AC power adaptor, on the other hand, will cease to operate in a couple of months. So far, I went through 3 adaptors in less than a year and a half.

Can not complete setup

G. Vaneman, Amazon
9 November 2011
  • Summary: The directions were fine but I could never complete the setup. I got to the point when all was completed and unplugged the camera from the ethernet cord and it stopped. Re-tired several times with no luck.

Panasonic BL-C1A

John B., Newegg
3 July 2011
  • Summary: I have had these things out in bitter cold weather. As long as they are under a roof they will be OK.
  • Pros: Contrary to another reviewer I have 7 of these great little cameras here in Michigan, 5 at my home and two at my cabin for security, all cameras came from Newegg. My son has two of the same camera at his home in Alabama. My daughter has one in Scotland. We use VPN, are on different subnets and ar...
  • Cons: I do wish they had POE. I had to make my own injectors and splitters
