The picture is wonderful. The motion alarm is fantastic. We placed on of these inside our barn across the street from our home, about 350 feet away. We added an $80. antenna to our router from Hawking, also available on Amazon, and poof! I can now see what all the sqwak is at 2AM in my barn with out walking all the way out there! Wow, wow, wow. The pan and tilt features are really nice. We setup another at our front door, and three "out door" styles around the outside of the property. I don't know how long this black "indoor" will last in the extreme temps and humitity of our barn and front porch, but that is not Foscam's problem. I will update at the end of the winter, or sooner if they die during winter!
4/3/11 Well they made it through the winter. We have been able to review motion detection alarm triggered video clips that were saved on our pc. We have been able to remote pan across the barn to see who is making all the racket and why. It is lovely to know who has been on your porch while you were sleeping! The cameras are wonderful. the there is an antenna you can get on amazon that will extend you wireless cababilities. We view the inside and outside of our barn across the street. These are great.
On the Alarm Service Settings, enable Motion Detection Alarmed and check Send Mail on Alarm. If you don't want alarms all the time, check the schedule and Set All, then clear the times you don't want alarms.
Next on the Mail Service settings: I recommend creating a NEW and dedicated GMAIL account - it's free and you will get a LOT of alarms depending on where you put it and how much traffic that area gets. For Gmail using settings:
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Port: 587
Transport Layer Security: STARTTLS
Need Authentication: Checked
SMTP User: <here enter ONLY the portion of your email address before the @Gmail.com>
SMTP Password: <enter your password>
[Don't click TEST yet] I read that sometimes it throws off some cache or some such, so click Submit first then Test.
I bought BlueIris but had problems if the IP address would cycle. I eventually figured out how to dedicate an IP address in my router, but the above method does not require any of that.
Just note that if the camera is monitoring an area with frequent traffic you may want to routinely delete all the messages in the GMAIL account to make it easier to monitor.
everything looked pretty new, although nothing was sealed. don't know if they were originally sealed. firing up camera 1, i can't log in to the camera control panel. it keeps rejecting the factory default password. after several attempts, i tried a hard reset on the camera, and lo and behold, it works. which makes me greatly suspect that somebody before me couldn't get this thing to work, so they returned it and amazon/this vendor sold me an open box item.
since i bought two, the rather cryptic instructions on the disc (not in the manual) told me i should load the multi-cam application, which i did. however, that app was buggy, and i couldn't add areas or cameras to the view, rendering it worthless. on a whim, i spent a while browsing online until i found updates of that multi-cam app as well as the individual camera control panel and loaded them. suddenly, everything started working. not easy or intuitive, but after much trial and error, i could see what was on camera one.
install camera two, and i had the same issue that i had w/ camera one. hard reset, and it's working too. peachy. now i'm able to view everything within my own network both on the desktop and mobile apps. score.
drive to work the next day and attempt to use the camera app, and it doesn't work. do more searching online, and everybody (foscam support forum, the camera manual, the multi-cam app manual, a port forwarding website that foscam recommends, etc.) has a different story: use port forwarding; use port 80; don't use port 80; use port 8090; use port 88; use port 85; use sequentially higher numbered ports for additional cameras; use DDNS; open a DMZ; use UPnP; open ports on multiple routers; use the internal IP addresses; use the DDNS myfoscam URLs; use the external IP addresses; etc. yes, i literally tried all of this. hours of my life. wasted.
i called foscam tech support and got put into a queue. 15 minutes later, a tech uses remote software to control my desktop. she does all of the above, fails, and says that it's my internet provider's issue. time warner is supposedly somehow blocking those particular ports. =/ i said screw it, put both cameras back in the box so that they can be sold along to some other poor fool, and requested a refund from amazon.
note that we also have a summer infant internet camera monitoring system, and that was literally plug-and-play. no issues at all seeing everything immediately, both inside and outside my network.
to the poor fool that gets these cameras when they are inevitably again resold as new...sorry mate, i didn't bother to do a hard reset before boxing them up.
If there is another product with a good ability to view images, and better customer service, I would go for that. Not sure I would highly recommend this, just because of the customer service.
