I've used different types of cameras for security in the past, but most of them have very narrow viewing angles, making it hard to watch a large area with one camera. This camera, however, has a wider viewing angle than most and makes it easy to watch a large area without having to move it too far back.

This camera can be setup with a wired wireless connection. Here was my experience with both:
(I'm using Windows 7)

Wired Connection:
This was very easy and quick. I simply took it out of the box, plugged it into the router with the supplied network cable and installed the software on my computer. The software recognized the camera right away, but you don't have to use the software if you just go directly to the camera within your network, i.e. [...]. Once you access the camera within your network, you can view it right away and setup a wireless connection, your mail, ftp upload, and adjust other settings. If you plan to use the wireless connection you will want to enter your wirelsss connection info while you're directly connected to it here.

Wireless Connection:
This is fairly easy once you directly connect the camera to your router and open it's settings. I simply had to supply my wireless SSID (and login/password/encryption type if used) and save it. Then I tunred off the camera, unplugged it from the router, and turned it back on after waiting about 30 seconds. From that point it was connected through the wireless connection instead of the wired connection.

Accessing the camera from outside your home network:
When you access the camera from within your home network, it's simple and easy. But when you go on a trip and you want to view your camera from outside your home network, you have to set some extra things up.

This IP camera is fine for monitoring. But, I give it 3 stars for the following reasons:

1) Cannot seem to remove/delete the default login used during set-up but then is supposed to be replaced by a log-in/password only I know. This to me is a security issue that makes your server vulnerable to attack and viewing of your premises by anyone with the default user/password and camera address.

2) No technical support other than the tiny set-up manual that comes with the camera.

3) My outdoor cam is mounted atop a roof for proper viewing but the power adapter/supply is too large to fit into an outdoor GFCI covered electrical box which keeps the plug from getting wet. So, I have to use a cold connection between an outdoor extension plug and the power adapter. Right now, I have placed the plugs inside a plastic tupperware type container. I emailed for a solution and hopefully one will be forthcoming.

4) From the purported camera manufacturer's website at [...]:

"Warning: There are a large number of bootleg/knockoff Foscam cameras being sold as "official Foscam" cameras on Amazon and Ebay. The bootleggers have become increasinlgy (sic) proficient in duplicating the physical appearance of our cameras as well as the user interface. Thus, we can no longer provide support or warranties on behalf of ANY Amazon or Ebay resellers, whatsoever. Please protect yourself and purchase direclty (sic) using the links on this page. If you have any questions or concerns please call us directly at 713 893 7869. All returns and replacements are processed through our warehouse in Houston, TX."

I like the camera but right now my advice is to look at purchasing direct from but first make them tell you how to remove and replace the default log-in before you purchase. Then how about telling me by leaving a comment.

I just bought the FI8904W camera to go along with the Foscam FI8918W camera I bought earlier. I was disappointed to find that the field-of-view for the FI8904W was much tighter than the F8918W, even though both are title listed by Amazon as "3.6mm lens, 67-deg viewing angle". I went to the website (not and found the spec sheet for the FI8904W. It states a "6mm lens and 42-degree viewing angle". I found that the narrow FOV made it inadequate for outdoor patio coverage. (For the tinkers out there you can buy replacement lenses. Google "IP camera lenses"). It's really too bad it doesn't come with the same lens as the FI8918W. Also, the camera does not have auto-brightness, which can be a problem if you want to view in both bright sun and darkness. On a positive note, it was not too difficult to set up in both wired and wireless modes and the construction seems solid and water resistant. I returned mine but would have kept it if it weren't for the narrow FOV.

I have seen quite a few bad reviews of these cameras, but they seem OK to me. Not great, but OK, especially for less than $100. So here is what I have found from the 4 cameras I now have. I have a mix of FI8904, FI8909 and FI8918. All are supposed to be 67 degree view, but the FI8904's don't appear to be quite there compared to the 2 indor cameras.

If you are going to use them outdoors, they need to be set to the "outdoor" mode so they adjust to lighting conditions. They all have a problem with bright sun and shadow areas in the same frame. They seem to wash out under those conditions. The color balance leaves a lot to be desired, but I didn't get them for perfect color rendition.

For outdoor use, the alarm setting is difficult. I get too many false alarms and miss real alarm conditions. It appears alarm triggering is based on light pattern changes, so a cloud going overhead triggers an alarm. If I set the sensitivity low enough to not false alarm, then a subject is nearly through the field of view before it will alarm.

Around dusk the cameras switch to a black and white mode and the IR lights come on. Night use is very iffy. The FI8904's do a good job of lighting the parking area and cars, but anyone walking into the picture is just a washed out white blur. The FI8909 only has 5 LED's so it doesn't wash out so bad, but the picture is basically black until someone gets close. You really need to be aware of the distance and chose the right model.

The web interface is able to handle up to 9 cameras. It is set up to split the sceen into 1, 4 or 9 segments. I can't get more than 3 cameras to work on a wireless network. Trying to go to a 4th camera bogs the network down so bad only 3 will function. I have tried them on both a "N" router and a "G" Access point with similar results. They might do better using the ethernet ports but ethernet is not an option for me.

I would recomend these camers, just be aware of the limitations.
