For several years I have been waiting for an affordable, wireless, outdoor IP camera to hit the market, and it looks like it has finally arrived. After 3 weeks of summer 90-degree heat, high humidity and torrential thunder storms in Georgia, I'm happy to report this camera continues to hum along just great. I have not had to reset it once, and have monitored it remotely via my Moto Droid almost daily (using the free IP Cam Lite viewer, which delivers the full 640x480 live feed). I use this camera to monitor my driveway and it serves its purpose with beautiful daytime color, excellent night vision, and better-than-expected low-light performance. I have it set to record video upon motion detection and FTP it to my ReadyNAS server, and it has worked flawlessly. Of course, the nighttime insects of the Southeast trip it almost constantly at night, but you can fully adjust the motion zones and sensitivity to minimize on false tripping. I have not seen a better camera with the feature set of this camera at this price point, and if it holds out in the coming months I will definitely be purchasing more to cover other zones around the house. My father has been running one in Texas for a little longer than I have and he's thoroughly pleased with it as well. I'll provide an update a few months from now.

Update [February 5, 2011] - Just a quick note to say that the camera has still been working flawlessly, 24/7, for 6 months now. Outside operating temperatures have ranged from the 100 degrees to 13 degrees and it just keeps on working. I don't know why it has on again/off again availability on Amazon, as this is clearly the best outdoor wireless IP camera that they sell. However, apparently you can still order it directly from Sharx.

A few months ago our house was broken into from a very brazen group of three robbers (punks) that backed their car into our driveway, jumped over the fence and smashed the back sliding door in order to gain entry. Luckily our home has an alarm so they quickly made their way through the house and out the front door without taking much. Our neighbor did witness the event but sadly only got to a brief description of the car and suspects. I decided it was time to take home security up a level and cover some key areas of the house with security cameras. After a lot of reading and studying, the Sharx line seemed to be a great way to start a system so I ordered one to try.

When the camera arrived I followed the instructions for set up and everything went smoothly. As mentioned in other reviews the manual is very easy to follow and written in clear English. I had the camera configured and running on my wireless LAN system in about 20 minutes. With the picture quality and basic configuration all set up, the next step was being able to see the camera when I am away from home. I have AT&T Uverse for Internet service and the Sharx manual includes absolutely perfect instructions to configure the 2wire router so you can view the camera remotely via the Internet. Without the manual I probably would have been lost on this step but the manual made the process so simple! After this step my next test was viewing the camera on my iPhone Safari browser using the 3G network to confirm I had a WAN connection, and yes it worked perfectly. After the test I installed an app that a friend who has a handful of Axis cameras recommended called Live Cams and again everything worked perfectly. This is a great app for viewing IP cameras and worth the money ($1.99) if you have an iPhone or iPad.

I agree with the previous "five star" review. Let me add a few additional points.
1. The manual is excellent, and totally sufficient for installation, assuming a reasonable degree of computer and internet saavy. No doubt the manual was written by a native speaker of the English language. <g> An index and table of contents would be useful additions.
2. Although I did not need Sharx tech support, other reviews elsewhere note that tech support is excellent. If you can set up a state of the art HD TV with surround sound and all the bells and whistles you'll likely have no problem setting up this unit.
3. The image quality (IQ) is outstanding, as well as the Depth of Field (sharp from front to back). I've set my unit to "record on alarm" (i.e., motion in the field of view) for a single still frame and a one minute video. Simply superb.
4. Upgrading to a 16 gig card is definitely worth the candle, as the DVR capacity is increased by a factor of four. New files automatically overwrite the old files once the card is full.
5. Obviously, my Sharx is setup in an outside location. The power-supply must be plugged into a weatherproof 115 VAC outlet within two or three feet of the unit's location. Durability is my only concern, but so far so good through high temperatures and rain storms. I will also update in several months on this issue. Assuming my durability tests are satisfactory, I also will be buying a second unit for additional coverage.
6. The nightime IR (infrared) works quite nicely as well.
All in all I'd rate this unit as a superior value.
