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.
I installed it okay, upgraded the firmware and web interface. The picture quality is horrible. The top picture below is from my crappy phone at 640 x 480. The bottom is from foscam. Forget about identifying the color of a car to the cops.
video is even worse. Very blurry and jerky. I have a strong network and could not get above 6fps. For the fun of it, I connected a cheap old web cam to an old laptop and connected to it wirelessly from my desktop (also on the network) and it performed 10x better than this.
Also, I was not able to get the IR to turn off. It is going back. Does not live up to its specs.
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.
"The Foscam US warranty is only available to users who purchase directly from Foscam US using
our online checkout system."
So if you buy it on Amazon, it appears that once the 30 day return policy has expired you are on your own if it fails for any reason. This is obviously not acceptable and I returned it.
