5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, December 13, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Astak Pan/Tilt Night Vision IP Network Camera (Black) (Electronics)
This camera delivered as promised with sheer ease of setup. There are cheaper wireless IP cameras out there but guaranteed they can be very frustrating in the setup process. I tried couple of other brands but they all require that you have technical knowledge about network protocol, port forwarding, dynamic DNS, etc. By comparison, the Mole's instruction was easy, non-technical and I was viewing the camera within a few minutes. Works well with the iPhone so that I can view the camera from anywhere.

Prompt tech suport is another plus. Many reviews of products neglect to examine and report on a company's tech support. What takes companies like Apple from good to great is their outstanding tech support.

There are a lot of extra bells and whistles with this camera (video recording, motion activated capture, email alerts when motion is detected, etc.). Since I use this camera as a "granny cam" I haven't had the need for the extras but it's good to know they're there should I need it in the future.

I have looked online in several places including the molecamera site, and I cannot find the view angle for the camera. I was hoping someone with the camera could give me a heads up on that since a wide angle (greater than 55 degrees would be better.)
Also, I have read that the camera does not autofocus. Is that true? If so, if you pan/tilt to an area that has a subject farther away, that would mean the image would be blurry, which makes me wonder how useful pan/tilt really is.
The last question...Can you pan/tilt from the iphone?
Thanks so much! I hope the answers will help more than just me!

I have this camera and I could tell you that the angle is not wide at all! I would need about three of these cameras just to cover my small living room. I am going to return this camera because of this reason..I think i am going to try the logitech alert, since it has a 130 degree viewing angle
