Wifi Issues

Jason Quint, Amazon
18 June 2013
  • Summary: Not sure exactly what the deal is but we can't connect to it on a regular basis, so i can't really use it as intended as a baby monitor. Not sure if the error is on our side with the wifi but seems to be spotty.

Baby Monitor

Jim "Jim", Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: I use this in conjunction with my iPhone and iPad as our baby monitor. This was actually my second in 2 years. I thought the first one was so useful with our first child, that we went with the same camera for the second.

Great camera

Tim, Amazon
25 June 2012
  • Summary: We have had this camera for about a year now. We use it with an app on our ipod touch and turn it in to a baby monitor. Almost no problems with it for several months. I think we had to reboot it one time.

Y-Cam Camera

Rob Goodall, Amazon
7 November 2013
  • Summary: These are great cameras but buying them full price stings a bit. So these Warehouse deals from Amazon make it a bit better. The camera has a wide angle lens and will cover a wide area. The colours are a bit off during the day but that is outweighed by the night vision. All in all a great camera at this price.

Not what it appears

Geoff, Amazon
11 September 2013
  • Summary: Purchased to record activities in my property. The set up was fine but when it came to storing onto the MicroSD card we found it wasn't possible. The camera is coded as an 'S' not an 'SD'. Therefore, despite the details given in the product description on the website, there is no MicroSD card option available. The camera was returned over one month ago and the site has not been amended.

Y-CAM YCB004 Black S

Dave G "paul_maudib", Amazon
9 October 2011
  • Summary: The camera functionality is ok and as it says on the box the colours in daylight are rather odd - not true to life. Greys seem rather purple and grass looks yellow (dead). Night operation seems ok although I've not compared it with other cameras. It worked ok with my OSX Lion client and a Windows 7 machine. HOWEVER if you are wanting to use a wireless connection beware - it's very very poor.

A bit disappointing having read previous reviews before buying

Alan Stockman, Amazon
22 May 2011
  • Summary: Once I got through 3 hours of trying to set up port forwarding to allow remote access (method in manual didn't work for me) I've found the wi-fi has the range of a 1 metre Ethernet cable, thus defeating the purpose of the wi-fi connection. Wi-fi was may main reason I purchased this product. Has a good picture though and also works well on iphone using either Ycam's own app or another called Live Cams both of which are free.

Very good product!

ataktos, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera was more than I was expected. It is the latest verion. It is easy to install it to your network, you just have to plug it into your router the first time and it will be recognised from your network. Alarm are working well, email sending and ftp. Motion recognision also working well, you have to adjust it according your needs. Infrared option is auto, or manual. Possibility to deactivate the power led. Very clear audio from the camera microphone.

A great product but poor support!

Retro, Amazon
16 March 2011
  • Summary: This is the same as the YCK004 but in black plastic. It's a great product, but the support clearly leaves something to be desired. But let me take things in order. First of all if you plan on buying a Y-cam make sure you buy the current model. This is a YCB004, and there are plenty of YCB003, a superseded model, on offer. Some at higher prices, some lower. I really suggest you go for the current version. This is true not only of the YCK but the other models they sell.

  • Summary: Cette caméra dispose de quantité d'options. Pour l'enregistrement, j'utilise security monitor car j'avais des problémes avec internet explorer et ça fonctionne trés bien.
