Pros: No nonsense old school network setup. Does require some expertise, but lets me configure it just how I want it. None of that privacy encroaching Cloud service stuff that other companies force on you. I buy it - I own it. Also, the Android app is pretty good.
Cons: Motion detection feature is pretty dumb and limited. Kind of average really, but in this day and age one could expect better.
Summary: I'd buy another for the sale price, and already put an alert for that price.
Pros: Picture better than I expected. I have them facing to outdoors thru a window. Street light front shows good. Back of house with flood light is good as well. No it's not night vision, but I can see pretty well. Software: just okay. Would be better if I could use my old camera with it that I moved ...
Cons: software okay, but needs more work Brackets, no options, mount on bracket one way and mount on wall/celing
Summary: I am sure some can access their network from home and then be able to use it in the way the "internet camera" suggests.
Pros: Good Picture for Network camara
Cons: Does not work on internet, It is a network camara. The app for your phone cant record sound unless you upgrade it so thats not free. I bought this to see the office from home, you cant do that with this camara.
Summary: Is good value but lack of night vision really put this camera off...
Pros: This is great camera for the money! The iPhone apps is good. Better apps than the cloud edition camera
Cons: You will need to know how to do port forwarding. Doesn't do night vision. I have the cloud vision as well and is a lot easier to setup! No port forwarding to figure out. The cloud version has night vision which is what makes it much better than this camera!
Summary: I purchased two of these cameras for a very specific purpose. They are used indoors and I have no need for stored video in this use, I just need to be able to see what the camera is looking at from where ever I happen to be.
Pros: Price is VERY reasonable for a PTZ IP CAM. You don't get a PTZ IP camera with such price
Summary: Manufacturer should post a little text tutorial to use this camera in Linux motion and zoneminder. Here's a little help. Zoneminder:Remote Host Name: <your camera's ip address> .Remote Host Path: /video/mjpg.cgi.
Pros: Nice picture. Took a while to figure it out but got it working with linux zoneminder and motion. Windows "should be" a breeze, I think. Don't use it though.
Cons: Had to do firmware upgrade to use java viewer. Do it with ethernet not radio!
Pan and tilt works great, but camera does not offer a true video recording solution

Summary: I have wanted to purchase a few outdoor cameras for home security and saw this model listed in the newegg email deals. I decided to purchase this unit as my guinea pig model. If I liked it, then I would look into purchasing the more expensive outdoor PoE models.
Pros: - The PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) features work really well. I would even call the pan and tilt (but not the zoom) operations "incredible" considering the price point - You can create “preset locations”. These can be used to change the focal point quickly on demand or to have the camera scan from one pre...
Cons: - The camera does not record video (other than via the iOS app to your iOS device); rather, it sends image (.jpg) files via FTP and/or email. Depending on your requirements for the camera, this may be a good or bad thing. I found it frustrating to scan through a collection of images as opposed to...
Summary: Upon receipt I plugged this in to my router, and grabbed the DHCP assigned IP address from the router. I opened the camera's website and logged in using the factory credentials as identified in the installation instructions. Saw a live image and thought, "Great, this is going to be easy!
