  • Summary: night vision: check works: check great price: check i'd give it 6 stars if somehow they would work through a window too. i know night vision can't work through windows so it's absolutely no fault to Foscam :)

Don't get it if you want wireless!

BruceB, Amazon
15 January 2014
  • Summary: After having two of the bigger Foscam cameras work fine in their applications, I thought this would be good for an application where I wanted smaller. Wrong! Even though I have the other two Foscam cameras all set up and working wirelessly, I cannot for the life of me get this one to go wireless. The only reason I haven't returned it is because I can use it where I want it with a cord, so I am just keeping it.

  • Summary: It seemed to work good for a few hours with my desktop (windows 8) then would not connect. The android app could not find or connect no matter how hard I tried .for me it is a one star but that's not saying others do not have good luck with this.

works maybe half the time

  • Summary: I have four of the FOSCAM units: two 8910, one 8909, and one 9821. All of them work less than 50% of the time. And the tech support is poor. Actually, it's the products that are poor. Tech support can usually get the units working, but after 2-3 days one or more go on the blink. Frankly, I've owned two different brands of IP cameras, and I can tell you that the engineers have failed to figure out how to produce and support cameras that work consistently..

  • Summary: This camera has worked well, though it did lose it's config suddenly at least once for no apparent reason. Otherwise it's exactly as advertised.

  • Summary: Works, but indoor use really means that, the IR LEDs reflect off the glass, so you can't expect to point this out the window at night.

Great except for WIFI range

Karl, Amazon

  • Summary: I like this camera but the WIFI range is not very good. Its located not that far from the WIFI base and it has trouble keeping a reliable connection. Other than the connection the product is pretty good.

Caveat emptor. This thing was junk.

Jason A. Miller, Amazon
14 November 2013
  • Summary: Nice picture (day & night) and simple configuration made this a very decent cam for the money. Too bad it only lasted about 3 months before failing. The unit was plugged into a decent surge protector but simply would not "boot" after moving it to a new location. I have a 3 year old cheap D-Link camera (similar specs) which has been OUTSIDE in a covered position and is still working.. and that's through the seasons here in the NE.

Good camera, did and will continue to buy more.

  • Summary: These things work best wired. Not an issue because my house is wired. But I've tried to run three different cams by Foscam wirelessly and every one would randomly drop off the network after while and not because to find its way back on until rebooted. That being said, for the price, these things provide excellent audio and video monitoring solutions. I've been using them for 3 years and continue to add more Foscam units on.
