"Terrible company with terrible service."

Fireguy551, CNET
13 August 2012
  • Pros: None, see problems.
  • Cons: Tried contacting support (on hold for 3.5 hours). Tried emailing support. Was told that the power supply was bad and that it was not covered in the warranty. They sent me a coupon to buy a new power supply for 50% off. Jerks

"Terrible Company. Camera is okay, but audio SUCKS!"

walserm, CNET
20 May 2011
  • Pros: Good night vision
  • Cons: TERRIBLE AUDIO. And Company charges a hidden restocking fee of 15% to return the product. AVOID like the plague, buy a camera in retail instead - this camera is also very difficult to setup. For the novice user, you'll have a hell of a time setting up wir

Got the Wrong Model

Looky, Amazon
30 December 2011
  • Summary: Bought this for a friend of mine as a Christmas present but was sent the wrong model. I ordered the FI8918W and got a different model with no pan and tilt instead. Too late to send it back so had to just go with what I was sent. Not nearly as functional as the pan and tilt would have been a very useful feature. Don't think I'll do my Christmas shopping online next year.

9 January 2014
  • Summary: Fick just en kamera levererad som jag köpt på foscams svenska webshop. Håll er borta från dom! Antennen var trasig när jag tog ur kameran ur förpackningen. Efter att ha varit i kontakt med deras support så avvisar dom min reklamation med hänvisningen: "Vi må desværre afvise din reklamation, og gentager gerne, FOSCAM og vores lager åbner alle kasse før afsendelse og kontrollere indholdet, om der mangler noget, eller noget har skade.

Günstige IP-Cam mit sehr vielen Problemen

Johannes Mages "Johnnii360", Amazon
13 November 2013
  • Summary: Die FOSCAM FI8918W ist eine günstige WLAN IP-Cam die NICHT ihresgleichen groß suchen braucht - es gibt sie wie Sand am mehr. Kurzum: Nach ausgiebigen Tests stellte sich heraus, dass es sich bei dieser Cam leider doch nur um Billigramsch aus China handelt. Die Verarbeitung ist einigermaßen i.O., doch leider kränkelt sie sehr bei der Haptik und Funktionalität. PROs ===== - Günstig - Mikrofon und Lautsprecher an bord - Audio In und Audio Out - WLAN und Ethernet - Div.

Sehr kurze Lebensdauer

Clarissa, Amazon
4 June 2013
  • Summary: Nach ein paar Tagen funktionierten der Zugriff auf die Kamera über das Internet und die Alarmeinstellungen nicht mehr. Außerdem wurde die Software der Kamera immer langsamer, z.B. wenn Veränderungen an den Einstellungen vorgenommen werden sollten, teilweise reagierte die Kamera dann überhaupt nicht mehr. Habe die Kamera gerade zurückgeschickt.
