It does a good job, but be aware of the setup troubles.

This is not an outdoor camera, but we are using it outdoors anyways (tried placing it near a window, but glare of light on the window blinded the camera).

There is no manual included and the ethernet cable supplied is rather short, so I used my own.

Starting at the installation this Plug 'n View camera is simple to get started, we put ours in the corner of our children's room, then you simply search for the Plug 'n view app on the google play store or scan the QR code on the box. We also added the program to our PC by visiting the Diamond Multimedia site and downloading though the link they provide. The camera turns on when you open the app, the video quality is fair to good, it is grainy so if you were using this to get a description of someone there might be things you would be unable to distinguish. It works great for keeping an eye on the far side of our house, we busted more broken rules in one sleepover than you could ever imagine. The night vision is a neat feature that comes in handy, and I like that you can add more cameras and see them all on one screen in a grid pattern. These cameras can also be recorded and files saved on your devices.

Three Amazon stars for "It's OK" as I wasn't overly impressed with performance and resolution. Price? We all have our opinions on what is good, but if you intend on adding more cameras to this, be sure to check final costs involved first.

Called a "PLC" powerline communications technology
This little system works through your house wiring to connect to the camera and then sends signal to your router via Ethernet cable so you can view from WiFi linked phones, tablets or even computer.

I mainly wanted this for viewing camera on 64bit Windows7 notebook and only had to download the Windows app from the Diamond web site to get it up and running.
I'm sure it will be handy to be able to view the camera(s) when away from home if the need arises.

The other phone apps for Android and iPad/phones are available on their site, as well as PDF manual and user guide. You might want to look at the PDF info for yourself. You can also download the phone apps from Google Play and the App store at no charge.

It's so hard to look at lower resolution picutres now that we are used to so much more video quality these days..
The highest for this setup is 640 x 280 with two other resolution choices of 320 x 240 and 160 x 120.
You can also assign settings of fine, better & best video quality to each size in order to tune it to what you need or like.

At 640 x 280 and "best" quality picture setting the maximum frames per second I could get was about 12, reducing to "fine" setting gave me a max of 14 fPS A bit choppy at about half of full motion frames, but okay.

Lesser settings were not so good on my tests, more FPS at lower quality settings and smaller picture but much harder to see details.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I got this camera, plus a D-Link DCS-933L at about the same time. These 2 products currently cost about the same, and generally fill the same role, so I'll compare them a bit in this review.

This Diamond unit communicates with your router by means of your house's power wiring. It seems like an odd system in this age of wifi and Bluetooth, but it does work well enough. However you are not supposed to use extension cords or surge protectors... which are all I have available in my old house. It worked for me off a standard extension cord. The D-Link works by wifi, once you get it set up. Of course you need to plug the D-Link in too, but power strips are OK.

This Diamond unit has no sound capability as far as I can determine. The D-Link does have sound.

This Diamond offers recording capability if you download the software for Windows onto a desktop computer. I think for the D-Link you need to purchase a recorder or something.

It appears that if you got a bunch of these Diamond cameras, you can view them all at once in a mosaic type view, making you feel important like a professional security guard. I'm not sure about the D-Link.

Both cameras offer impressive infra-red night vision capabilities at indoor distances.

One the plus side, this unit had far better video quality (though still pretty poor) when viewed over the internet from my PC at work. That mosaic view would be pretty awesome, assuming I had cameras to fill all those empty squares. The night vision was fine.

On the negative side, the lack of sound, the need for extra outlets (which are lacking in my old house), and the lack of adequate instructions are big strikes.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This puppy is relatively easy to set up, needing two outlets and one or two app dls or a GR scan. The image is fair in the day and better at night, compared to similar cameras. It seems pretty well made of decent plastic, and the design is rather futuristic.

If you need a simple monitor to watch your stuff or your kids or your teenagers, at night especially, and you've got a smartphone, this is a fairly-priced unit that will do what you need. We take stuff like this for granted now, but in the '80s or even '90s if someone said you could watch your kids playing or sleeping at home, or check that your pets are safe, etc, from a screen on your phone in a restaurant or hotel ten or even ten thousand miles away, you'd be looked at funny, and it would cost a fortune. But now we can do it for less than a c-note, in decent video quality, with little set-up. Pretty cool, all in all.
