Top customer reviews
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
A senior tech support rep called later and confirmed this was a known issue and occurs when you use their cloud service. Evidently accessing the camera via the cloud causes the cameras settings to be overwritten. He said they are working on a fix and suggested I delete the camera from their cloud service. I did that and the camera settings have been stable for about 24 hours now. I installed a microSD card and configured the camera to record to that. That's not an ideal solution but it'll have to suffice until Amcrest can fix things and I can use their cloud service. I do appreciate the fact they were proactive about contacting me and were transparent about the problem.
If you absolutely need motion detection and cloud storage, I would stay away from this camera until that issue has been addressed via a firmware update.
--- Original Review 4 Star Review:
I bought a Foscam Fi9900P, an Amcrest IP2M-842W, and an Amcrest IP3M-943W and compared them against one another. This review will focus on the IP3M but will also attempt to call out the strengths and weaknesses of each. I'll try to summarize pros and cons at the end. You may want to jump to the end if you don't want to read my long-winded review. The IP2M didn't make the cut and isn't summarized at the end. The next paragraph explains why.
Amcrest IP2M vs Foscam 9900P:
I initially compared the Amcrest IP2M and the Foscam 9900P. Both offer 1080P resolution and both felt solid and well-made. Image quality was similar but I thought the Foscam offered more detail, while the Amcrest provided more natural color. Regardless of the video setting used, video from the Foscam was slightly jerky. Video from the Amcrest was very fluid. Unfortunately the angle of view on the Amcrest IP2M-842W was much less wide both vertically and horizontally (110° on the Foscam vs. 70° on the Amcrest). The Foscam provided a much, much wider view of the area I want to monitor. Since angle of view was a priority to me, the Amcrest lost on angle of view and will be returned. If angle of view isn't important, it's a very capable camera and may work for you.
I then bought the new Amcrest IP3M-943W. It offers a 92° field of view (the box says 100° but Amcrest sales said 92°, so who knows). It supports a max resolution of 2304 X 1296. This isn't that important to me as I am running multiple cameras and don't max out their resolution for bandwidth reasons. I also don't see a significant difference in image quality between 1080P and the higher resolution. While the Foscam seems to offer a wider angle of view than the Amcrest IP3M (110° vs 90°), that isn't really the case. I've attached photos from both cameras that show the angle of view from the exact same location. The Amcrest actually has a slightly wider angle of view but it's distorted and a little weird to look at. Both cameras offer very good image quality and feel solid. The differences really came down to software, support, and ease of installation.
I had to drill a 1" hole in my house to get the Foscam's wiring harness through the wall because of its horrible design. The harness should be removable so a small wire can be passed through the wall and then connected to a dongle containing the five (!) cables. Foscam didn't do that so you have to snake a harness containing an Ethernet connection, a power cable, a reset cable, and two cables for a speaker and a microphone through a hole in your wall. It wasn't fun but I eventually managed to get all the wires through a 1" hole. The power cable was also way too short. The Amcrest consists of only a power cable and an Ethernet connection, so it requires a much smaller hole. The downside is the Amcrest doesn't support two-way audio and you have to remove a cover on the camera to access the reset button.
Both cameras allow you to install a MicroSD card and record to it. You have to take the Foscam apart to install the card. On the Amcrest you loosen two screws, remove a weatherproof cover, install the card, and then reattach the cover. Neither approach is ideal but it makes sense to secure the card given the camera is intended to be mounted outdoors. Amcrest makes the process a little easier.
The Foscam was unable to stay connected via wifi, while the Amcrest was rock-solid. All of my cameras are (or will be) connected via Ethernet so this wasn't a big deal. This could be a big issue if you planning on connecting via wifi. And as an aside, if you're planning on running multiple 1080P cameras, wifi may not be a viable option.
The real difference between the two cameras is their software. The browser-based interfaces used to view video and manage the cameras are very different. Foscam offers a user-interface that is straight out of 1985. Amcrest's is much more intuitive, although it still needs a LOT of work before anyone would call it intuitive and easy to use. I've owned Foscam cameras for years and I'm continually disappointed that Foscam puts ZERO effort into developing contemporary, easy-to-use, intuitive software. It's like they simply don't care. And maybe they didn't until the whole bitter Foscam China vs. Foscam US divorce. Foscam will have to step it up (in many ways - more on that later) or Amcrest is going to eat their lunch.
I ran into problems with both cameras and had to contact technical support. Both companies were responsive when I called on the phone but Foscam never answered support requests I sent to their support email address. Amcrest replied within a couple of hours to one email and never responded to another. When I tried to submit a support request via the Amcrest web site, I received an error message that said, "Access to support.amcrest.com was denied. You don't have authorization to view this page." Neither team was ever able to resolve the problems I encountered. They worked diligently but eventually gave up and agreed I should return the cameras. I did a factory reset on the Amcrest (which required a screwdriver and a trip up my ladder), reconfigured it and everything is working as designed again.
Cloud recording didn't work on the Foscam. I received a bunch of (incorrect) excuses as to why until a helpful support rep finally admitted it was indeed broken on their end and they didn't know when it would be fixed. That is a perfect example of why I am trying to move away from Foscam products and am experimenting with Amcrest.
Both cameras are a little glitchy and exhibit similar quirks. The motion detection zones mysteriously disappear and video resolution changes for no apparent reason. The Foscam's video resolution seemed to change constantly. On the Amcrest, video resolution is pretty stable but the detection zones seem to have a mind of their own. While these are minor annoyances, they're important. These issues are fixed via firmware updates and Foscam's history with firmware updates isn't good. I'm hoping Amcrest will see that as a potential differentiator and fix bugs and glitches and release new firmware aggressively.
Bottom Line Foscam vs Amcrest:
- The Foscam and the Amcrest both offer very good image quality.
- Field of view is equally expansive but the Amcrest suffers from crazy barrel distortion in order to get there. See the attached image for an example. The Amcrest is the photo on the left.
- The Foscam supports the addition of a mic and a speaker but all of the wires going into the camera make installation really tough unless you're comfortable drilling a 1 1/4" hole in your house
- The Foscam software and UI suck. They always have but I've used them for so long I know how to navigate the horrible design. Amcrest's is much better but still needs work, particularly the playback screen.
- Foscam seems to be trying to up their tech support game but dealing with Amcrest was a better experience.
- Both cameras can take snapshots and email them to you when motion is detected. The Foscam will only send 3 photos, although all 3 are included as attachments in a single email. The Amcrest sends individual emails containing a single photo and this means you may get a lot of emails every time motion is detected. My phone was blowing up during testing.
- I didn't see a noticeable difference in IR capabilities between the two.
- I was unable to use the Foscam with wifi as it constantly dropped the connection. I didn't have any problems connecting via wifi with the Amcrest.
- Foscam's cloud service is currently broken (per Foscam support). If you use Amcrest's, you run the risk of turning off motion detection and/or losing the defined detection areas (per Amcrest support).
All in all, I feel the Amcrest is a better choice for me and will be returning the Foscam. As always, YMMV.
If you downvote this review, please leave a comment as to why. I pour over Amazon reviews when I'm considering a purchase and want to help others who do the same. If you think my reviews suck, I'd like to know why.
1. Set the camera up and get it to connect to Wi-Fi before even thinking about mounting it in it's final location, as you may have to use the 6 foot Ethernet cable to get it to connect.
2. I finally decided that maybe the camera was "choking" on the dual band, as the manual states that the cameral will only connect to the 2.4Ghz band. I did a factory reset on the camera, and opened my router software and temporarily disabled the 5Ghz band and tried to get the camera to connect again. It connected on the second try. I enabled the 5Ghz band and the camera still connected even if i powered it down and restarted it.
At this point it worked on both my wife and my smart phones.
3. I had previously installed the Amcrest IP Config software on my desktop, which is the software used to connect a Windows computer to the camera and that still wouldn't connect to the camera. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it, and still wouldn't connect. I then realized that the IP address in the login screen didn't look similar to the other IP address of devices connect to my router. I again opened my router software and found the IP address that the camera was using. I plugged that address into to login screen and bingo, it worked.
Also, another tip, the green light referred to in the manual is located under the little cover where the reset button and the micro SD card slot are located. You have to remove the two screws to access the reset button, the light, and the micro SD slot.
After ~ 6weeks the IR filter got stuck in night mode; so while it still looks fine at night; day image is all purple. So Elton John might light it; but not me.
Took a week of back & forth emails for tech support to come to the same conclusion (I couldn't call due to my work schedule)
Supposedly it will be replaced. will update if/when that happens
I do with the mount was better; while it looks like a common ball joint in the pics; It only has 1 angle of movement.
