All in all, very happy with these Foscam cams. The only thing that I would probably say takes some time is the configuration. It's not the worst thing in the world if you've configured network devices, but if you've never done it, there's a little bit of a learning curve and the interface is pretty awful. Also, you won't get sound unless you use IE. I've seen some people write some code in Android that supposedly mitigates this, but I haven't really touched it so I can't vouch for it. The IE code is definitely one of the browser limitations though. As far as I know, Foscam hasn't released any APIs that allow you to tinker with the sound itself. Everything else can be done as far as moving the camera around and turning the IR on and off and so on. Very nice from my iPad and phone.
And now we can be sure that our kitties are doing well when we're out of town. Yah!
the cameras are awesome for the price and they do a lot! . . . love the motion detection and the emailing capabilities . . . the email took awhile to set up, but dont' be afraid to look up how to do it . . . i got this so i can monitor my dog while i'm away and tried to get the mobile app that it came with to work on my htc g2 android phone but was too troublesome . .. downloaded ip cam viewer from the market and works great for being free or you can buy and get some additional features . . . interface on internet explorer is ok, not amazing or anything . . .
overall, i'm happy with my purchase but i wish the title was more accurate or at least follow through with what you offer . . . 2 stars because i didn't get my product as described in title but i like the product
I have Windows 7 64 Bit, Verizon FIOS wireless router
