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.
After receiving the camera and getting it setup, I have to say that these cameras are pretty neat and fun! I was very impressed with this model alone, even at 640x480 resolution, the imager is very high quality with high sensitivity (even with out the IR LEDs on). The Pan and Tilt movements of the camera are virtually silent, another item I was skeptical on. The firmware is full of very smart features allowing all kings of set ups. From PT Presets, Adjustable Resolution/FrameRate, all kinds of Alarm settings, to the ability to mount the camera on the ceiling.
Installation is easy. The camera comes with a ceiling/wall mount bracket (plastic base) making this camera very versatile and allowing the camera to be used in many applications.
Network setup was easy, plugged camera into my router, looked in the router log, found the IP address. Opened up Internet Explorer, type in the IP. When prompted, I installed the on-board ActiveX software. You're now at the Log in page of the camera's built-in Web-Server, you don't even need to install the provided software which is another item I was skeptical about. The camera is fully functional through the IE browser allowing you to go through setting up everything needed like Users/Passwords, Port numbers and Wireless LAN. The Wireless LAN was a little tricky with the camera not wanting to connect. After about the fourth time of selecting my WiFi network, putting in the passphrase, the camera finally logged onto my network using the WiFi connection. I also downloaded the "Foscam US" app to my Android phone, entered in the net settings of the camera, the camera picture pops up. At first the Pan/Tilt feature wasn't working in the app, but after reconnecting to the camera, those controls starting to work. You also want to be careful on which app you use. Go to Foscam.us to see a list of recommended Apps to use.
As the Manufacturer mentions, you need to change your password if you are allowing remote access from the internet to this device. You also want to change the port number to some random number to make it even more secure and hidden from the rest of the world.
The only issue we had to overcome in using this as a monitor was that it is a security camera, and not a monitor. So when our kids were infants we used a cheap sound monitor to let us know if they were crying, and then we would just open the app to check on them. The cost of a Foscam plus a cheap sound monitor is considerably less than an expensive baby video monitor.
It is a little confusing to set up, and took some patience. But once I figured it out, it was smooth sailing. I recommend these to all my friends expecting babies.
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.
