Pros: Camera does take pictures and send them to you in email. Placed in a window facing outside, you will know when your kids come home and when packages are delivered.
Cons: Abismal customer support. You can find Youtube videos from Foscam showing you how to set most things up, but no troubleshooting. Interface is not user friendly either. When you need help website LIvechat kicks you from one IT person to the next without talking to you. It actually kicks you off the system if you wait too long for them to respond. It took a couple of hours trying to get someone on Livechat to help, finally they told me that my password didn't work becau...
Summary: Manual focus ring means you can't have it pan/scan a room that has objects closer or farther away than others. Again, acceptable in my case.
Pros: Amazing Device! Does exactly what I expected it to.. VERY customizable interface and very easy to use. Night Vision works great! At LEAST 8meters as they advertized. Mine e-mails me if it detects motion or sound during specified times of the day.
Cons: 640x480 isn't high res these days and while it works for my use (watching the kids at night or while they're in their play room) it may not be high enough resolution for security as you may not be able to make out peoples faces from distance.
Summary: - Setup was easy. (though no audio on the Mac sucks - good thing I have a PC) - Controls are good. - Image Quality is poor. . Even my $10 HP webcam can do 720p and provide way better image quality. This one maxes out at 640x480. - Sound quality is mediocre; lots of hum. - Mounting system is good - Build quality looks good. - Value is decent I'm undecided about returning it. I'm not sure if the image quality is acceptable.

Summary: it is a perfect camera for home surveillance. we can control moving direction of lens and also register picture capture or video. the only problem i see with this camera is a buzzer sound when it recorder. this is a mind blower because we cannot cancel this crazy sound. other negative point is the amount of memory bite is spend on our Internet subscription FA, because we have to pas by the net to make it functional. Even connect directly to the router does not work.
Summary: In vergelijking met een andere gelijkwaardig "prijs/type" ip Cam. Kan ik het volgende zeggen. Door het feit dat er een bruikbaar handleiding bij zit. Ben ik er in geslaagd beide camera's draadloos op mijn wifi netwerk te linken. "Als leek was het nog veel zoek en probeer werk maar het lukte" Optisch zijn ze gelijk goede nacht zicht zelfde scherpte... Mechanisch merk ik dat er meer speling op de pan en til bewegingen zit.
