Not up to par with other Foscam products.
on December 10, 2013
While I have been really happy with other FOSCAM products, this item does not have the same quality. This appears to be cheap imported item that Foscam simply slapped their label on.
On the plus side...
-It is quite small, so it is fairly discrete.
-It does record video
-It has a clock
On the con side...
- There is very little documentation. In fact, the tiny, rectangular CD containing the user guide wouldn't even play in my new laptop. I had to find another laptop and use it just to view the manual.
- You cannot discretely enable recording. It seems to be meant as something you enable when nobody is around and then leave recording. You wouldn't want to activate the recording mode if the subject was in the room. The process takes several second and then the screen displays what it is recording for 10 seconds before turning back to the clock mode.
- The buttons provide a clumsy way to navigate the menus.
- The DVR menu items are difficult to understand. I was never able to determine how to view my recording on the device.
