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. For night vision in absolute, total darkness with no visible light, upgrade to SCNC2607 which adds infrared night vision and a higher quality, wide angle lens. 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.

Both cameras have great video quality, even on my iPhone!

The last time while setting up the first camera I didn't follow the manual's instructions; this time I found out how easy the installation is when you do.

I highly recommend the 2606 webcam and plan to purchase two more Sharx webcams.

I purchased this camera mainly to use with my Smart Phone. It was easy to setup and can now view live video on my phone or any of my PC's.

I use this camera mainly to view wildlife behind my house. I have motion detector flood lights that light up the area at night, so I normally don't need the Moonlight Mode, although it does work great in low light.

The attached video was taken at night without using the Moonlight Mode. I'll attach another video showing what a video looks like with Moonlight Mode turned on.

This is an amazing camera and has a very sharp picture. I do wish it had an external mic jack like my SCNC2601. The audio is much louder and more sensitive when using an external mic. An external mic jack is on my wish list for the next smart phone supported model. :-)

Comparing this camera to my SCNC2601, I would say the SCNC2606 has a sharper picture but I do like the SCNC2601 for it's Pan and Tilt capabilities and its external mic and speaker jacks. Both are great cameras and work great locally or over the internet.

"Don't judge a book by it's cover" was never more true in this case. I wanted a camera of higher quality than your typical web-cam, so while I was scrolling through the results of "wireless cam" I initially missed this one due to it's visual similarity to webcams. But then I saw how highly it was rated and decided to try it. After owning the cam for over a month, I could _not_ be more impressed! It has all the features I was looking for and then some. Most importantly, onboard continuous loop recording to a SD card (or to remote servers), uploading of images to a remote server when motion is detected, and password protected web access (both through [...] or through active streaming using a viewer such as VLC).

The other reviews have covered most things that can be said, so I'll only try to fill in a few more blanks. The quality of the picture is excellent for the price. However, the moonlight mode does (understandably) drop the fps, yet unfortunately it still didn't quite have the sensitivity I had hoped for. There is a street light outside of my home, and although I can see fine with my eyes, the picture is completely dark even in moonlight mode. That's not too much of a problem though since the night-vision version is more appropriate for that use anyway.

I was looking for a reliable 802.11 wireless monitoring camera. I tried two other brands. One would need rebooting every few hours to keep it functional. The video quality on the other was poor.
I decided to try Sharx camera, after reading the reviews on Amazon.
I have been using this camera for a week now. It didn't need rebooting like the other brand. The picture quality is amazing as compared to other two brands that I tried.
Cons:
The manual may be little a difficult for someone not very familiar with computers. But I believe this is overcome by the excellent customer support.
Pros:
Excellent Video Qaulity.
Reliable Motion Detection.
Excellent Customer Support.
Good integration with free dynamic dns, for accessing it from outside (linksys required paid service)
Email from Gmail SMTP server using port 465 (Not possible with the other two brands that I tested)
Moonlight mode for night video
Overall a very well balanced and reliable camera.

After researching and trying other options for monitoring my newborn daughter's nursery, I chose the 2606 because it offers a wide variety of features for an affordable price. Combining a wide angle lens, a low light setting (be sure you enable the "moonlight" setting to get maximum performance), and several simultaneous streaming options including some with two-way audio, the 2606 is a very versatile camera. Unlike some other wireless IP cameras, the 2606 offers several levels of encryption including WPA2-PSK which was a huge selling factor for me. Another HUGE selling factor for me was the cross platform compatibility since my primary system is a Fedora Linux machine. One thing to note on this point is that the included software is Windows only but it's only used for the initial setup of the camera (really it just scans your network to determine the IP address of the camera). However, all you really need to know after you plug the camera in is what IP address was assigned to it. Once you know the IP address, all settings can be set through a web browser regardless of platform. After installing the included software, simply plug the camera into your router and run the software and your camera will be automatically detected (again if you know how to determine the camera's IP address then you don't even have to install the software). The camera also has built-in motion detection and alarming capabilities so you can be notified via several options such as e-mail whenever motion is detected in view of the camera. If you're looking for a great wireless camera and you don't need total darkness vision (if you do check out the 2607), then the 2606 is a really nice camera which offers plenty of technology for a reasonable price.
