After doing a lot of research on Amazon I took a chance to add this camera to my existing home CCTV system. I use 4 logitech 9000 USB cameras. Two to monitor outside, and two to monitor the second floor of my home. I wanted to monitor the first floor, thereby completing my CCTV project. I travel a lot and like to keep an eye on my home from afar. I run everything on an iMac, running "Security Spy". Security Spy supports this camera. My goal was to connect it to my wireless network, and view the camera via Security Spy, and the camera's built in webserver, if the iMac went down while I was traveling (which has happened in the past).

At first I had problems but with a bit of patience I figured it out. The first thing I had to do was to give the camera a static ip address as my airport extreme would want to change the camera's IP address everytime it rebooted, which caused me a hour of grief. Once the camera had a fixed IP my airport extreme router settled down and "accepted" the camera.

The second thing I had to do was to "disable" the Plug N Play feature in the setup menu of the camera. That caused me another hour of wasted time, as the UPnP feature caused havoc with the stability of my wireless network and prevented me from seeing the camera via the internet. Once the UPnP was disabled in the camera my wireless network was rock solid. I was able to view the camera via the web, as well as on my iphone. The camera has proven to be a great addition. The picture quality is great. It is very well made. To me, it was money well spent.

I only wish the documentation was written better, as I really felt like I was flying by the seat of my pants. So detailed below is a brief overview to help other Mac users as the setup was not in the instructions, nor are they obvious.

I needed a "nanny-cam" network to monitor the whole house. I installed FOUR Panasonic IP cameras (one BLC-1A and three BLC-121). All function exceptionally well. I am able to access any single output or a composite of all four easily, even from an iPhone.
The wireless range and reliability of the BLC-121 was disappointing, but when hooked up in wired mode, work flawlessly. Setup with a Mac was difficult (there are plenty of "how-to's" on a google search that made it less painful). Sound for the BLC-121 on a mac is nonexistent.
Very happy with the video clarity and reliability of all four cameras in wired mode.

Bought this camera to keep an eye on my front yard. I have it facing the window looking outside. Initial setup was easy, although had to play around with it to fine tune the settings. Images are decent at the higher resolution of 640X480. Less than this, images are comparable to that taken by a cell phone. Have it setup to FTP images to my computer. Wireless range is good. Please note that the camera does not perform well in low light or night time conditions. Camera does have a night view feature which does improve the low light condition somewhat, but the image is grainy. Overall this is a decent camera for the price.

This camera is perfect for a home or small business. I recently replaced two TrendNet WiFi cameras with these Panasonic units. The image quality is excellent, though there is no infrared night vision. But that's a good thing if you're like me and have them mounted inside behind glass. iR night vision capable cameras tend to have the iR lights reflect off the glass at night causing your image to be unviewable. Almost like holding a flashlight in front of a mirror (if that makes sense). So if you're mounting these at your home or business, as long as you have a good motion light outside your home, that's all the light you'll need.

The clarity and auto focus on these cameras are excellent though colors may appear slightly washed out. But we're not looking for HD quality here. The TrendNet cameras you had to manually focus by turning the the lens. These have no such focus mechanism.

1. I love that these don't have the annoying external antennas on them, the wifi antenna is built in. Cameras with the WiFi antennas tended to be a pain to mount because you had to take that antenna into consideration.
2. I love the mounting bracket. The mounting bracket was well thought out allowing you to mount it sideways, upside down, or right side up. In other words, the base you see in the photo, can be rotated any direction. Then your camera can rotate 360 degrees as well. I found the base to be well built. My TrendNet and Dlink camera swivel mounts broke after rotating them a few times, and they were only rotated a few times because you couldn't tighten them into position without breaking that too.
3. These have a microphone but I've never used that function.

Received this camera today and installed easily. I could view it perfectly on my computer through my wireless network. The only problem I had was configuring my router as I am a ATT uVerse customer and the configuring was a little different due to their firewall settings. I had to go in and create a custom firewall setting for the camera network setting then I could view the viewnetcam website for my camera. We love this so much we just purchased a second camera for a different room to keep an eye on our pets.
