Great for the price!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: LOFTEK® CXS 2200 Wireless/Wired Pan:270° & Tilt:120° Dual Audio Alarm Ip camera,15 Meter Night vision,3.6mm Lens ,67° Viewing Angle, Easy installation. White. (Electronics)
You definitely need to be comfortable with configuring your router. Make sure to open a port. The IP Camera Monitor software didn't install for me on XP so I had to use the web view instead. The software did install on Vista.
Lots of features. The pan/tilt and zoom are nice. Bought two. One for the inside of my home, the other pointing out a window to watch the front door area.
The one pointing at the front door works great during the day, but the IR reflects off the window so you can't see anything at night. It is unfortunate there is no way to turn the IR off. I've read a few forums where others have had the same need.
A message to the email address for support was promptly returned, but did not offer a solution. My solution was several layers of duct tape in the shape of a disk. Has to be thick. I cut a circular hole in the middle of the disk which allows the camera to pick up images, but blocks the IR. The tape is sticky enough to stick to the edge of the lens. I have my front door light on at night so the camera picks up the light and gives a decent view. Not pretty but works.
Great bargain for the price. Except for the IR issue, would have given it 5 stars. Now all my family and friends want one too.

It does not have Zoom at all, would be nice if I could purchase a zoom lens for this camera and just screw it on the front after unscrewing the stock lens..
