I'm usually pretty good with bad English translations in my instruction manuals, but this product is pretty rough. You often can't tell if the manual is telling you that something needs to be done in order to make something happen, that it shouldn't be done if you want it to happen... or if you need to make the second thing happen (some other way) in order for the first thing to be taken care of. Use of negatives and double-negatives is a challenge, too. If you are familiar with the configuration of network gear, try to forget what you know. It doesn't work *exactly* the same with this camera. You're better off as a novice, I think.

Since it burned 15 hours of my time, here's a possible help for some people about to return their camera because "wireless isn't working". This is for people who manually assign IPs, or who don't understand why the camera isn't finding any wireless networks. Understand that the camera has to be set it up in very specific stages. You can't make all your changes at once. Also, you must use the proprietary software to connect to the camera over Ethernet the first time. Don't use other software. Make sure you set your router for dynamic IP allocation. Next, you reboot through software. Next you power cycle. Log into the camera using IE. It says you can use other browsers, but don't. NOW set up the wireless properties. Save them, remove the ethernet cable. Reboot through software and then power cycle (yes, that's two boots). Log in again. NOW change the IP assignment from dynamic to manual. Save and reboot through software and then power cycle. You won't find these instructions in the manual. I had to stumble upon it and I've repeated the process with minor variations to be sure - nothing else works. Good grief!!!!!!! I was about to pack these things up and ship them back. Looks like they work fine if you know the right dance. I'm using 128 bit WEP. If you're using something else - good luck to you.

I was a little concerned after reading all of the posts complaining
about how hard their experiences were in setting up this camera.
Aside from that, the ratings were good, the price was right, and since
I have 20 years IT experience and am a glutton for punishment, I
ordered one. Actually I need at least three, but I wanted to buy one
as a test, and if it passed, I'd buy the additional two cameras.

I ordered this camera and several days later it was already in my
mailbox. I unpacked it, and was going to put off configuring it until
Christmas day, when I would have had much of the day to play with it.
Being the workaholic that I am, I decided to go ahead and try and
configure it within minutes of deciding I wasn't going to do it. I
got out the instruction book and started going through the steps, one
by one. The grammar kind of bothered me, you can tell English
wasn't a native language for the technical document writer. I'm not
going to lie, you're going to need a bit of technical experience to
get this camera connected, but it's not the camera's fault. With all
the security that's around nowadays, along with all the possible setup
scenarios, it's likely never going to be a plug and play scenario to
get an IP camera working. I'll bottom line you though - it was worth
it. I love this thing!

My first bit of advice is to take the instruction book that's inside
the box, and put it directly into your trash can. Seriously. That
book is flawed and you're going to need the Hubble Telescope to read
the small print to begin with. Follow the manual on the CD that's in
the box. There are guides on the CD. One is a User Manual PDF and the
other is a quick guide.

I have been using this camera for 2 days in my home's security monitoring system. The camera does well in daylight and serves images over its web server around 30 FPS at 320 x 240 resolution.

However, at night, the camera turns on its IR LEDS, this apparently draws a lot of power and the camera's frame rate drops to only 7 FPS.

For simple monitoring of your home while you are away, it is easy to setup and use, the web server includes buttons to turn the camera left/right and up/down and to make small adjustment to brightness and contrast.

The customer image that is labeled "Kitchen - 2010-07-08 01:24:48" is an image capture during the night where a cat jumped onto my kitchen island. It's hard to tell it's a cat from the single frame. This camera may not be that useful as a security camera because the quality of the images, especially in darkness, is poor.

Pros: good picture quality, virtually noise-free operation, great night vision, easy network connectivity, excellent A+ tech support.

Cons: A bit large and obtrusive, software is buggy, power cord a bit too short.

Overall I'm very pleased with my purchase. I bought this camera primarily for use as a security system, but also as a gag so my wife and I could watch our cat during the day while we are at work (pathetic, I know). The email motion alarm and FTP file storage allow for us to instantly know (and save the pictures to a remote location) if someone breaks into our house. The camera software is a bit buggy, it doesn't work 100% using firefox (i get strange errors when trying to pan) and the email settings need to be re-worked in order to allow you to enter more characters in certain fields. I'd imagine these will be fixed during the next firmware or browser software update. That being said I can easily log on anywhere I have an internet connection and check on my house, day or night. I also wish the power cord was a bit longer so I don't have to use an extension cord. Tech support was great, what every company should strive for. I emailed them with a question and received continuous help over the next few days until the issue was resolved.
