I bought 2 of these, then ordered a 3rd. They are cheap cameras which work well in daylight. They have good low-light capability too. But forget about the night vision. You can barely see the outline of an object just a few feet from the camera.

My main complaint about this camera is the mounting system. You must remove the mounting bracket. The bracket is attached to the camera with 2 very tiny screws. I ordered a 3rd camera because I dropped 2 of these mounting screws, 1 at a time, and couldn't find them. These small mounting screws will fit under my fingernail. The camera should have a different mounting bracket.

Bottom line is that this is a nice general purpose daylight indoor camera which is cheap. Just keep a magnet close by when you mount it. The night I.F. lights should not be a consideration in your purchase.

More than I expected for the money.
The black dots are just plugs to seal the holes other models need for night vision.
This one dosent have night vision.

We have a 16 channel DVR with some extra open channels. I wanted an inexpensive camera to mount in a cabinet to monitor the electric meter. I just plugged it in this afternoon, and it is not at all what I was expecting. The image is fantastic. The audio is clear and crisp. All through a 100' cable. For $14 I am impressed! The cameras that came with the security system are washed out by comparison. Made for "night" vision they have no IR filter so plants and clothing are shown in false color. This little camera has as good or better resolution, rich vibrant color, and a better image in twilight than the others that range in cost from $30 to $60. For a tiny camera, the case is metal and surprisingly heavy and solid feeling. We'll see how it does at night, but since we have low wattage security lighting outside I expect it will be fine for what we need. The only knock is that it's not a weather resistant camera. But at this price and size it should be easy to make a watertight enclosure for it. A two inch PVC pipe should be sufficient in most cases I would think. I am placing an order for 5 more tomorrow!

I ordered four cameras to use with a four channel DVR that I had sitting on the self, so could not pass on the price when I saw them. I noticed in other reviews that the little black dots are nothing but plugs and had no function (possibly for IR LEDs for another model). Upon opening the boxes, I noticed that the cameras do have IR LEDs installed. I checked the model marked on the box and they are the same model as ordered. So, I guess this is a bonus for me. Maybe all newer models ship with the IR's. The camera specs state that the camera is powered by 12VDC, however all the units I received have 9VDC adapters included. I guess this should be okay, as the cameras most likely regulate this source voltage down to on lower internal working voltage, i.e. 5VDC or the like. A spec sheet is included. As others had noted, there is no mounting screw, just a tilting base mounted to the camera with three holes for screws, etc. I tested one camera directly connected to a monitor and was satisfied with the picture. The camera can be focused by turning the lens, screwing it in or out. There is a lens cap that you will need to remove (if it doesn't fall off anyway). I tested the camera by placing it in a parts storage room and have good results. The bonus IR LED's might as well be little black do nothing dots. The IR does work, but the subject need to be pretty darn close. Don't expect to have night vision here, but as with any CCTV camera you can always add an IR flood light. There was one reviewer that said he/she had ordered three or four cameras and one was bad out of the box. I have not tested all four yet but the two I have tested are okay. I will do an update if I find any issues later.Read more ›

I got this camera for security in my shed due to missing items. It was very easy to install and hide so that it wasn't able to be seen unless you were looking for it. I then hooked it up to an old VCR we had stored in the attic. The picture is quite good for the size. I do wish that there was a USB version of the camera with a motion sensor capability because it really wasn't fun to watch the video to capture many hours of nothing for days to find 60 seconds with someone taking a flat head screwdriver. Now, it told me who was taking my stuff, but if it had a built in motion sensor and was connected to a computer, I would have saved myself many hours of headache.

I have this little camera installed at the front door of my house, it works great, has a very good image. Haven't used the audio, no big deal, don't need it. I can receive the reception on my PC with a video card adapter or can watch it on my TV with no problem. Now I can see who is knocking on my door, and can decide to open or not. LOL! I am very happy with my purchase.

I got this little thing because of the price. And it turned out to work like a charm very clear and easy to set up. The instructions were very clear also. There was one minor problem no screws but even if there were screws i would not damage the walls in my house.
P.S. if this happens to you to use the 3M product with stickiness on both of the sides.
