Product Description

Size: Plug and Play | Color: Black

The Foscam FI9831P is a "Plug & Play" camera featuring the ability to connect via smartphone by simply scanning the QR code on the underside of the camera. Bypassing the need to access your router and setup port forwarding, it can be set up effortlessly by anyone, even those with very little IT experience. The FI9831P adopts a high performance media processor and high speed video protocol processor making it capable of H.264 video compression for extremely smooth high definition video transmission, increased FPS and minimal bandwidth consumption. In addition, due to the small file sizes produced by H.264 video compression it has the ability to save tremendous hard drive space when doing video recording. Furthermore, the FI9831P also features a built-in DVR via on-board SD Card slot for direct recording on the camera itself unto 32GB. In addition, the FI9831P is smartphone compatible (Iphone, Android & Blackberry) as well as viewable over the internet network using the standard Safari browser (no app necessary). The camera functions well as an Iphone baby monitor or as part of a home or office security system with remote internet monitoring ability.

I've used a number of the FI8910s, and while they did "okay", they were never great and the resolution is poor. The FI9821 was a good try, but was plagued with software bugs and just not very solid, hence the release of a V2 version. Skip those, and go with this camera. The several FI9831Ws I've used have all been solid, with good wired and wireless connectivity. Focus is good, and the video is much smoother than the weaker 9821 brother. This is now my "go to" IP camera choice. It's still not great on motion detection, but that's a tricky problem to solve.

To those who complain about difficulty in setup, know that these are not for the unskilled. You need to understand how to set up network devices, and poke holes in your router's firewall if you want external access.

Although wireless performance is good, I generally hard-line mine when I can to avoid the vagaries of Wi-Fi. In that setup, I recommend setting the camera to a fixed IP address in the camera, so it always comes to the same IP address regardless of whether it connects by Wi-Fi or hard-line. This will make port-forwarding in your router easier.

The only real ding I have with this camera is it doesn't play nicely with the Chrome browser to save your password so you'll need to type it in every time you access the camera if the Chrome browser is your viewer of choice.

I mount my cameras outside, but protect them from rain by placing them under eaves....or pie tins. If there's a chance your camera will get wet, tape over the unused connector openings. If you're even more electromechanically inclined, open the camera and spray the PCBA with conformal coating to protect it from moisture. I used Humiseal 1B31, but many other options will likely work just as well.

Love the 1.3 MP sensor. I have the video stream set to 960P instead of 720P. It has a great viewing angle.

This unit uses the standard SD cards.

Almost everything I liked and disliked about the other HD Foscams got carried over to the FI9831W. Setup was simple. Not Plug and Play QRCode simple but took me less than 5 min to finish my configurations.

The unit is not too expensive but it isn't cheap either. At $200, that's $50 more than the FI9821P.

I would recommend this 960p camera for surveillance. The 960p is overkill if you just plan to use it to monitor a crib.

This is a preliminary review, but I thought my setup process might help others. I will update the review when and if I successfully set up the camera for remote viewing from my vacation residence. I currently am just making sure it works and am wired to the router. When I used the camera search tool and linked to the camera, I did not get a camera view. I got a window with camera settings. On trying again, Chrome said it could not load without an extension plugin. I downloaded one and added it to the Chrome extensions. Then, when I opened the camera link, a nice high definition camera view appeared. I later closed and reopened Chrome and was unable to get the camera view. I went to the Chrome extension window and saw that the extension had been disabled because it had not been acquired from Chrome. That's when I called Foscam. I was number 18 on hold, but finally talked to a technician who I allowed to control my computer. He seemed to do the same thing I did to add the Chrome extension and the camera view appeared. I then closed and reopened Chrome and expected the extension to once again be disabled it wasn't and I don't know why not. So when I need to view the camera from another computer, I may need another remote control session of my computer.

I have purchased four other Foscams (or Foscam knockoffs). Three still work, but the camera view with this device is much much better. If things work out when I set the camera up for remote access, I may replace the other cameras with this model.

UPDATE
I managed to install the camera with Internet access at my vacation residence. By the time I finished installing, it was fairly dark outside. But the camera captured a much brighter view than I could see.

I wasn't expecting much, especially after reading previous reviews of other Foscam cameras however the consensus was at least this model was usable out of the box. If I could get a reasonably clear picture from my phone I would be happy. The F19831W exceeded all expectations.

Setup worked exactly as the Quick Installation Guide said it would - I was using a Mac and the provided IP Camera Tool program was easy to use. While I was able to configure the camera using the Chrome browser, I had some problems with viewing the video stream due to plugin restrictions. I would recommend using Safari since the plugins seemed to work better and it let me both view and configure.

I used the free Foscam Viewer app for iPad to test and it worked great (I could at least view the video stream) but was not as full-featured as one might want. Look into the paid apps and pay attention to the reviews if you want something more for iOS. For my Android phone I purchased tinyCam Monitor Pro ($3.99) due to it's high rating and feature set. It was a little more difficult to set up but provides Tilt/Pan/Zoom and other features that the free apps did not.

Since I have some networking experience, setting up port forwarding and firewall rules was not as daunting as it may be for a typical home setup. Follow the suggestions in the Quick Install guide and use a strong password plus SSL to make sure your camera is protected. It took about 90 minutes from unboxing to having a secure, encrypted and remote-accessible IP camera system using my own DDNS domain. While not HD, the video quality was far better than what I had expected.
