Summary: There are no better solutions than this one with the exception of the motorola at 3x the cost and not nearly the functionality. Please note, the bad reviews seem to be from folks that were looking for a simple plug-n-play option.
Summary: I should have titled this review "Most People Don't Know What They're Doing." The number of one star ratings on this device prove this point very well. There are a LOT of variables that go into creating a reliable and consistent Wifi network.
Summary: Okay, so I've read the reviews on this camera and I have to agree with the majority of reviewers; this camera is poorly constructed and tech support is miserable. I bought this camera as a baby monitor and for the first few months, it worked just fine.
It’s not perfect, but it’s better and more flexible than most

Summary: I can say without a doubt this was the best item we bought to help us with our baby. There is a lot less accidentally waking the baby up to check on noises and we rest easier being able to check on her whenever we want.
Summary: had camera for over a year, takes a while to set up and when it goes down it is a real pain in the butt to fix. I am very good with computer issues and this thing is a nightmare. and now after a year it can only work wired to wireless router, which defeats reason for having it.
Summary: I've owned this product for over a year and have finally given up. Here's the breakdown: Mac Support: Poor (and now obsolete) iPad / iPhone Support: Poor (in-house app sucks to the point of non-existence.
Summary: My entire experience with this product has been extremely frustrating and disappointing. I work in the field of microelectronics, and I am fairly adept at providing my own tech support at home. Despite this, I could not get this device to work reliably.
Summary: Camera worked great for 10 months. The image quality was not amazing, but decent enough to be a baby monitor. We've had to reboot this thing thousands of times as it loses its wifi connection. The power cord stopped working unless you had it plugged in at just the right angle.
Summary: DO NOT BUY this product, although the idea is right but the camera is slow and video is sometimes behind 10-30 seconds, not good for baby monitor. Needs a lot of improvement. I have found another similar product, and have not set it up but I am told it is much better, check our dropcam.com
