Technical Details

Product Description

This Wifi b/g wireless IP camera has its own built in web server. You can view the video from your own home network or you can configure your router to view and control the camera from computers or cellphones on the internet, without dependence on any third party web sites or subscriptions. With the built-in microphone you can listen in. Excellent MPEG4 or MJPEG video quality at a full 640 x 480 resolution with up to 30 frames per second for fluid, natural motion color. For viewing or recording a single camera no software is required besides just your browser. For viewing or recording multiple Sharx IP cameras the included MultiView software for PCs supports up to 4 Sharx IP cameras simultaneously. Truly amazing to see the streaming video on your web enabled cell phone. For frequent use we recommend to upgrade your cellphone service to unlimited data, which costs just $15/mo extra on the ATT network. You can see motion even on non-3G phones like SonyEricsson w580i. If your phone does not support video you can see automatically refreshing JPEG images. At home, you can use this camera with your laptop or iPhone as a baby or pet monitor, and the very high light sensitivity in "moonlight mode" allows you to view out from a window to see what's happening in the street as long as there is some background light available. This camera has infrared night vision which can see in total, absolute darkness. Like any infrared sensitive camera, the daytime colors are subdued and can appear unnatural especially on plants and vegetation. For eye-popping, gorgeous daytime colors please select the less expensive Sharx SCNC2606 camera if you do not need night vision in total darkness. Wireless operation supports WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption. On routers with UPnP feature the camera can set itself up automatically, and on routers without UPnP (such as Apple's Airport series) the camera can be set up with our step by step instructions.

I recently purchased the SCNC2607 IP-Cam to use as a video server that I could access from within my home on my PC's and iPhones, as well as to access the video from anywhere outside my home LAN if I want.

Not requiring any special software to access this camera is the single most important item for me. If you want to be able to log into a camera from anywhere in the world, on any machine that has a connection to the internet and a web browser of some type, this is the one. There is also an included application called "Multi Live" which allows you to view up to 4 cams in one window.

The camera itself was pretty easy to set up, and the image quality is superb! No tricky setup decisions are necessary by the user to decide what type of streams are available to whoever logs into it from whatever platform. If you log into it on an iPhone through Safari, the iPhone negotiates with the camera server software and automatically appends the URL with the "/en/mjpgmain.asp" extension. If logged in from Internet Explorer, the basic URL automatically appends the "en/avmain.asp" extension. All you need to do is type the URL of the camera into your browser and the rest is taken care of automatically.

Safari on the iPhone will not process the audio stream, but this is not a problem with the camera, it is a limitation with Safari. I have read that Safari on a Mac computer will also not process the audio stream. I have tried various iPhone applications to process the audio stream, without success. But the designer of IP Vision by TTrix software has written me that an upcoming version will process audio.

If you are like us and many new parents, you may have purchased an inside-the-house video baby monitor - such as the Summer. In this day in age, however, an even better solution is one that works both inside your house AND outside your house on your cell phone or at work!

This Sharx SCNC2607 is amazing and perfect for our baby cam. Great picture during the day and absolutely awesome images at night when there is no light in the baby's room! This was exactly what I was looking for when looking at the more expensive solutions such as Axis, Sanyo, etc (which were going to cost me over $500!). I was concerned that the Sharx would be of lower quality but I've been very pleasantly surprised...

Here are some benefits we've found by having the Sharx SCNC2607:
1. When Daddy is at work, I can keep a small window of the baby's room on my screen to see my little girl whenever I have a spare minute!

2. We have the camera setup as an icon on Mommy's iPhone so she can easily click on the camera and view the baby's crib. Whenever Mommy is away (and the Nanny, Grandparents, or Daddy is watching the baby) she can view into the room and see her little girl. Even inside the house we found that Mommy carries her iPhone around with her and its more convenient to have 1 consolidated device rather than also carrying around the Summer receiver.

3. We setup the Grandparents with an secure account to be able to look into the webcam and see their granddaughter anytime... We actually turned off the audio though to ensure we maintain some privacy in our conversations within the baby's room :)...

4. Screen size using the Sharx and the iPhone is 2x the Summer screen and has a much larger viewing angle.

So how hard is this to setup?

Everyone needs to know that there are at least three versions of this camera floating around. There is, 1) this camera (Sharx SCNC2607), 2) Y-Cam Black SD, and 3) LTS LTCIP830MV-B. All three cameras are EXACTLY THE SAME. They are all the same camera (all the internal parts are the same), just re-branded. The only difference between them is PRICE. Sharx's camera costs around $300; the Y-Cam's camera costs around $285; and LTS's camera cost about $150. Newegg sells the LTS version for $150 + free shipping; I bought mine from an Altex store for $160. Y-Cam makes housing units for these for $100 if you want to mount them outdoors. So, there is absolutely no reason for anyone to pay more than $150-$170 for this camera.

You can download the firmware and software upgrades only from Y-Cam's website (which makes me believe that they are the original manufacturers of this product). On Y-Cam's site, click on "Downloads" on the left side. A page will load asking you to register; scroll down to where it says "Don't want to register?" and click the link to access the downloads. The firmware will be for the "Y-Cam Classic - 2nd Generation." From this page, you can also download the latest MultiLive program (free). MultiLive is the software bundled with the LTS version of this camera (I assume it's also bundled with the Sharx and Y-Cam version too). When I upgraded my camera's firmware to 3.38, it kept all my wifi , detection, and other settings, so that was nice.

For $160 (what I paid for the LTS version), this was an excellent buy. I don't think you can get any better than that. The night vision is great compared to any other sub-$200 IP Camera. The WIFI range is also good.
