This does not have zoom as most others don't as well but it would be nice.

Great and easy setup (since I have done others before) and it's just as good or better than the others especially the ones made by the company that starts with "F".

OK so I've had this over a year now and for the price, you get a pretty good camera with an OK interface. I was able to set this up so that I can view over the Internet and I also downloaded a free LofTek app for the iPhone which is very basic but gets the job done. The colors are a bit off since I believe it is truly a night vision camera and there is no way to turn off the IR LEDs in software to my knowledge. Sometimes when panning, it goes off on its own and I have to pan the other way to get it to stop. There have been the occasional times where it has needed a hard power down/up to get it back on line but nothing major. All in all, it's a good little camera. The instruction manual was kind of a joke. I actually had to get out my eye loupe to be able to read it. Fortunately, I know enough of how to configure these things so it was not really necessary for me to read it cover to cover in order to get the camera working. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to experiment, keep an eye on the kids or the like. If you want more features and better quality/re;iability, you might want to step it up a notch or two to something a bit better.

The camera works fine for wireless access on your home network. However, when trying to access it remotely, which is the real purpose of getting the camera, it does not work. I followed their port forward instruction and also uses [...] direction with no success. Wasted so much time. Lorex camera was plug n play. I think all these loftek cams are going back.

Edit Sept 24, 2013
Well, before handling it to UPS to ship it back, I decided to try 1 more thing. I removed a VOIP device from my network and that got it to work. So the camera is working fine over WAN. However, I did not have this problem with Lorex camera. Lorex was twice as expensive though.

The tech support tried to be helpful, but sending email to China, and wait for them to reply is too tedious due to different time zone. In short, get this camera if you are a technical person, and plan to spend some time tinkering with your setup. It was frustrating, but given the price, I bump it to 3 stars.

Product was as described. Setup was not too challenging, but I am tech savvy. Maybe a bit difficult for a novice.

Only con so far is that the supplied power cord with attached wall-wart is not very long (less than 3 feet) so if you plan on placing it somewhere for wireless LAN use, better have an ac outlet close by or you are going to be running extension cords.

Update: The night vision lights bloom badly on glass so the video is worthless when used to look through glass at night.

So this camera takes a few minutes to get all figured out, but once you setup your router correctly its a champ! I've moved several times and all I have to do is have it get a new IP address and then I can access it through my phone (using a 3rd party app).

The camera has a microphone and a hookup for a speaker, but I've not played with this feature. My primary use is on the basement door so I can verify that I locked it when I'm in bed. I've used the camera for a variety of uses before the door checker like: Dog Watcher (stupid dog gets on the couch and howls so he is now in the kennel), Time Lapse of snowstorm, motion capture of cars driving by (and people walking). Basically this camera does what I want to do and the price is nice.

I'm planning on getting a few more of these to help ensure the garage is shut and other home security like things. I have the camera auto-upload any pictures/movies to a remote FTP site and then review and display accordingly. I can also setup the camera to send emails and such, but at this time I've not had a need.

If you want a wireless camera with a speaker then this isn't the camera for you. You can hook one up, but I didn't have the need. Price is nice and night vision well.

I already had one setup and working but wanted to cover more area. Instructions are ok, could be better but for the price not bad over all.

This video cam works very well. Set up and installation was not difficult.Yes, the instructions could have been a little bit more clear, but I was able to understand and figure it out. I am currently working on other features this device has, but so far I am pleased with this product.

As of right now it is working well. It stands out a lot and cant be hidden because it needs to be plugged in. It is pretty much good for just monitoring. I like it and can not complain for the price!!!!

I would love to give this camera a five star rating, but the viewing options is lacking and the setup was cumbersome even for a geek. The image quality is best when viewing at night. The day viewing is okay, but the color is a little off. The camera works great for me since my primary use is to monitor kids at bedtime and during naps.

The setup will require that the camera be hardwired to the network. I am a network engineer by trade so I was able to find my way through the setup, but the non-techie type may want to get a tech savvy friend to assist. This camera will not come out of the box knowing what wireless SSID to connect to and what passphase to use on a secured wireless network. You do have your wireless network secured with WPA2 and a PSK at a minimum, right? Just saying.

Once configured, there are three options (modes) for viewing and controlling the camera. The "best" option allows for use of a standalone program called IPCMontior that can only be downloaded using Microsoft IE and runs only in Windows. This software will allow for multiple cameras to be accessed if you have purchased more than one camera and gives a wide range of control of the camera, switching between cameras automatically, etc. You can maximize the software to fill your monitor with the image from the camera unlike with any other mode. Like the camera setup, the setup of the IPSMonitor software is not for novices in my opinion. The second viewing mode is a great option for those on other operating systems like Mac OS or if you favor other browsers like Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc. in Windows or Linux, but the browser must be able to run Java Script. IF this option/mode does run in your browser of choice you get much of the same control as with the software mentioned above, but you must open a separate tab or browser window for each camera using http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx where the X's represent the IP assigned during setup. You can adjust resolution, but the highest resolution option is 640x480. The third viewing option is for use with limited function browsers like those found on a smartphone, tablet, or Raspberry Pi. You can view the camera's image and control pan and tilt, but the resolution is limited to 320X240.

I would recommend the camera, but you should be tech savvy or have a tech savvy friend assist with setup. You get the "best" viewing options when using Windows, but the camera can be viewed using smartphones, tablets, or just about any operating system that will run a browser. Setting this camera up for remote viewing (across the Internet) increases the complexity of the set up exponentially. The camera met and slightly exceeded my expectations overall given the price.
